These are names I've been liking lately. Combos, Opinions, Suggestions, etc are always welcome!! :)

 

Possible first names:

Elowen

Elodie

Elsa

Ingrid

Evangeline

Liadan (Lee-uh-den)

India

Prudence

 

Possible middle names: --BE PREPARED: there's a lot. lol--

Eliana (Ell-eee-awn-uh)

Genevieve

Rosalind

Ruth

Thora

Thea

Sabra (Saw-bruh or Say-bruh. I can't decide, I like both)

Scarlett

Sophia

Asha (awh-shuh)

Gwendolen

Aurelie

Anastasia

Nahla

Astrid

Amelia

Angelica

Hollis

Sylvie

Carys

Arianwen

Juliet

Liliwen

 

One I am torn on: (I'd use

Anniken.

I love it. It is a name from my country of heritage as well as my ancestors, it means grace & favour, I love the nickname options, etc. But it's a boy in starwars. Is it too much? Could I still use it as a middle for a girl? Would you find it odd on a real person?

 

Some of the middles I'd consider using as a first name. Most of them, actually. :) So you can feel free to make combos however!! I appreciate anything and everything you say!

 

Now, for the boys: - for this one, I have a few old names/combos that I am keeping, but not including. My list is already huge!!

 

Possible firsts:

Ezra - just not loving any combos with it lately. need major help there. :)

Hudson

Franklin

Shepherd

Percy-Arthur - yes, together. He could go by both names <3 I'm crushing on it hard lately

Caiomhin (Kee-vin) - do you think this could work, or is it too complicated to have Gaelic names in the world today outside Ireland? If it doesn't work as a first, I'd put it in the middle. 

Wren -only like it on boys :)

Robin -again, only like it on boys. I think Robin Hood, Christopher Robin, and batman's sidekick.

Frederick, nn Fritz [I can't pick a spelling!! Do you prefer- Freidrich, Frederik, Frederick, etc?] - I get an Austrian child from the WWII era innocently playing outside with his friends in my mind. I really love it. Fritz. Fritzy around the house when he's little. ahhh so cute <3

Bravery -feels like an update on Avery :)

Henry

 

Possible middles:

Frank

Thomas
Etienne

Spurgeon (spurr-jun.) -has personal meaning to me

Ridley

Cairo

Morroco

Ember

Canaan

Ransom

Nils -it is of my heritage, and I love the meaning; "Victory of the People" -- I nearly always pair it as Oliver Nils

Niles -like Miles, with an N. 

Aston

William

Shadrach (shad-rack)

I love "El" names in general, Elowen, Eloise, and Elsa are precious! <3 I thing Evangeline, Liadan, and India are all so beautiful too <3 Prudence is lovely, I like Pru a lot.

 

I pretty much like all the middle names lol. I dont care for Thora, Sabra, or Liliwen though. And I think Asha's pronunciation would be easily confused :( I loove Astrid, Juliet, Rosalind, Genevieve, etc sooo much though!

 

I think you could use Anniken if your a starwars fan, cause people will ask and if you dislike the movies then it'd be kinda funny. and awkward. I've never watched the movies but its still got a strong connection to the movies lol. 

 

 

Sorry I'm not more helpful :( Its hard to type one handed while feeding bubs :P

I just want to say that both of your lists are wonderful! It was tough, but I picked my four favorites and came up with some potential combinations. As far as using the name Anniken goes..I say if you love it and it has meaning to you then go for it! I wouldn't let the Star Wars association bother you, especially if you plan on using it in the middle spot! 

 

Elodie: Very beautiful, it has a great whimsical feel to it.

Elsa: My favorite! I recently fell in love with this name after watching the movie Frozen, it's absolutely stunning.  :wub: 

Evangeline: This is one of the names I would love to see on someone else's child. It's beautiful and had some great nicknames

India: This has been on my guilty pleasure list for quite some time. I think it's very unique, but not too out there...and I adore the nickname Indy 

 

Girl Combinations: 

Elodie Rosalind

Elodie Sophia

Elodie Ruth

Elsa Genevieve

Elsa Rosalind

Elsa Juliet

Evangeline Ruth

Evangeline Sophia

Evangeline Hollis

Evangeline Carys

India Scarlett

India Genevieve

India Aurelie 

 

 

Ezra: This is one of my current favorites, it's so handsome!

Hudson: I've always loved Hudson, I think it has a certain vintage charm and goes nicely with all kinds of middles. 

Frederick, nn Fritz : The nickname Fritz is adorable! I prefer it spelled as Frederick, it seems more classic to me. 

Henry: I'm a sucker for the name Henry.  :wub:  It sounds so classic and royal and ages incredibly well. 

 

Boy Combinations:

Ezra Thomas

Ezra William

Ezra Ridley 

Hudson Ridley

Hudson Ember

Hudson Niles

Frederick Thomas

Frederick Spurgeon

Frederick Etienne

Henry Etienne

Henry Spurgeon

Henry Canaan

I love Elowen, Elsa, India, and Prudence from your girl names. Elowen brings to mind a nymph or an elf (Lord of the Rings, not Santa Claus!) Elsa, India, and Prudence are all old-fashioned and adorable! Elsa is on my short list at the moment, and I'm determined to get DH to agree to India! (;
I like Elodie, Evangeline, and Ingrid, but not as much as the four I previously mentioned. Evie would make a lovely nickname for Evangeline, or maybe Eve or Eva.
I've never heard Liadan before, but I think it could work! Its similarity to Leah makes it a very unique possibility!
From your middles, I think Thora, Astrid, and Sylvie would go along very well with your other first names, though Astrid and Ingrid are very alike.
 
Some combos:
Elowen Ruth
Elowen Thora
Elowen Thea
Elowen Scarlett
Elowen Astrid
Elowen Sylvie
Elowen Freya
Elowen Syrie (see-ree)
 
Elodie Scarlett
Elodie Ruth
Elodie Carys
Elodie Corinne
Elodie Nora
Elodie Arwen
 
Elsa Genevieve
Elsa Gwendolen
Elsa Charlotte
Elsa Caroline
Elsa Merrigan
Elsa Catherine
Elsa Bronwen
Elsa Rhiannon
 
Ingrid Eliana
Ingrid Sophia
Ingrid Aurelie
Ingrid Anastasia
Ingrid Juliet
Ingrid Amelia
Ingrid Eleanor(a)
Ingrid Olivia
 
Evangeline Ruth
Evangeline Scarlett
Evangeline Asha
Evangeline Astrid
Evangeline Freya
Evangeline Sigrid
Evangeline Florence
Evangeline Rose
Evangeline Hazel
Evangeline Ruby
Evangeline Arwen
 
Liadan Thora
Liadan Scarlett
Liadan Sabra
Liadan Cora
Liadan Mabel
Liadan Violet
Liadan Sophie
 
India Ruth
India Charlotte
India Margaret
India Bronwen
India Cecile
India Catherine
India Margot
 
Prudence Eliana
Prudence Anastasia
Prudence Amelia
Prudence Arianwen
Prudence Aurelie
Prudence Eleanora
 
Sorry for any repeats! You have a lovely list. I noticed that many of your names are Welsh or Nordic, which are lovely and unusual!

Ezra - Handsome, though I'm not a huge fan of Hebrew names.
Hudson - I was never a fan of this name until I worked with a guy named Hudson. He was very nice and very intelligent. I think it's a great name,
Franklin - I would love to see Franklin used! It's a very sweet, old-fashioned name.
Shepherd - I like this. It would be a very cool name for a little boy, and I think it would age very well.
Percy-Arthur - I'm not a big fan of either name (I like Persie for a girl, via Persephone) and I've never liked hyphenated names. This one isn't my style.
Caiomhin - I really wish I could say "Yes, Gaelic names totally work in the US!" because I love a few. This one is very handsome, though I prefer the feminine version, Caiomhe. Spelling it Keevan or Keevin takes something away from it, in my opinion. If you really love it, use it as a middle.
Wren - I'm so glad that someone else likes this for a boy! I love it as a nickname for Lawrence.
Robin - Yes!! I love Robin. It's very handsome, and it does work for a boy.
Frederick, nn Fritz - I love Frederick, spelled this way. Fritz is definitely my favorite nickname. I would love to meet a little Fritz.
Bravery - I'm not a fan of word names, and this is no exception. :/
Henry - Very handsome, though also popular. Hank is my favorite nickname.
 
From your middle names, I love Nils. I think it could work as a first name, and it would go well with your other fns.
 
Some combos;
 
Ezra Thomas
Ezra Morocco
Ezra Canaan (too biblical?)
Ezra Niles
Ezra William
Ezra Caiomhin
 
Hudson Frank
Hudson Thomas
Hudson Cairo
Hudson Ember
Hudson William
Hudson Shadrach

Franklin Morocco
Franklin Ember
Franklin William

Robin Percy
 
Frederick Thomas
Frederick Spurgeon
Frederick Ember

Elodie, Elsa, and Evangeline are my favorite of your possible first names for girls.  Here are some combo ideas:

 

Elodie Ruth

Elodie Sabra (I personally prefer the softer pronunciation say-bruh, especially with the feminine, elegant Elodie!)

Elodie Scarlett

Elodie Nahla

Elodie Hollis

Elodie Carys

 

I also really like Elodie Maeve - I don't know if that's your style, just thought I'd put it out there!

 

Elsa Genevieve

Elsa Rosalind

Elsa Gwendolen

Elsa Juliet

 

Evangeline Ruth

 

As for Anniken, why not use Annika?  I love Annika - it's so pretty and unique without being too "out there."  Plus, it can wear the nicknames Annie or Nikki, which are both darling.  I didn't know about the Star Wars association, so I don't know whether that is a potential issue or not.

 

My favorite of your boys' names are Henry, Frederick nn Fritz (may possibly be stealing this for my own list!  :wub: ), Ezra, Franklin, and Percy-Arthur.

 

Henry Thomas

Henry Spurgeon

Henry Canaan

Henry Nils

Henry Aston

Henry William

 

Frederick Thomas

Frederick Nils

Frederick Aston

Frederick William

 

Ezra Franklin (?)

Ezra Thomas 

Ezra Canaan

Ezra Niles

 

Franklin Thomas

Franklin Shadrack

 

Percy-Arthur Thomas

Percy-Arthur William

Percy-Arthur Niles

So many responses! I'm excited, I wasn't expecting that many!!

Sooo. I'll start with Anniken. I'm not really a Star Wars fan. It isn't that I'm NOT a fan, I've just never been into it. Ughhh. I'm still torn.

I love so many of the combos suggested.

And yes, good observation :) I'm of Norwegian (3/4)/ Welsh(1/4) heritage.

Again, so many great suggestions! I will be posting my revised list from your suggestions in a bit.
