Hello! I've been revising my name lists a lot lately, and have gone in a completely different direction than before. Here are my top 5 for each gender. I'm just looking for opinions really, although if you have any suggestions for names I might like then they're welcome too :)

 

Girls

Bridget Rosemary *Birdie*

Cecily Thomasine *Lily*

Mabel Constance *May/Bel*

Elsa Clementine *Elle/Elsie*

Stella Josephine

 

 

Boys

Leopold Augustus *Leo*

Edmund Clarence

Hector Nathaniel

Rupert Thaddeus *Rupe/Rupie*

Lucian Thomas *Luc*

 

So what do you think? All opinions are welcome :)

Girls

Bridget Rosemary *Birdie*- I love the name Bridget and it pairs well with Rosemary. I don't really like the nickname Birdie but I suppose it would be cute on a baby.

Cecily Thomasine *Lily*- Cecily is so pretty but not many people I mention it to like it. I don't like Thomasine. Lily  might be a bit of a stretch for a nickname but I love it.

Mabel Constance *May/Bel*-Not my favourite.

Elsa Clementine *Elle/Elsie*- Elsa/Elle/Elsie are all pretty names. I don't like Clementine.

Stella Josephine- LOVE Jospehine but not Stella.

 

 

Boys

Leopold Augustus *Leo*- I like just Leo but this combo is handsome.

Edmund Clarence- Edmund is cool not sure how I feel about Clarence.

Hector Nathaniel- Don't like Hector but love Nathaniel.

Rupert Thaddeus *Rupe/Rupie*- Not my favourite.

Lucian Thomas *Luc*- I kinda like this. I like Luke better than Lucian but I like the flow of the name.

Girls

Bridget Rosemary *Birdie* -I'm starting to like the name Bridget with the nickname Birdie! Rosemary is not my style but works well with Bridget. 

Cecily Thomasine *Lily*- I cannot fathom how much I love Cecily! Such a gorgeous and underused name. I'm not too fond on Lily as the nickname but I think it could work. I prefer Cece but I guess that's guaranteed for any Ce- name. Thomasine is a name I haven't heard before but I like the feel it brings to Cecily. Nice combo!

Mabel Constance *May/Bel*- Mabel is so precious! I love "old lady" names. Constance is not my style and I don't really like it. Seems a bit masculine to me. 

Elsa Clementine *Elle/Elsie*- I adore both of these! Elsa is lovely. Since I saw the movie Frozen my thoughts for Elsa has increased. Love it! Clementine is a southern gem that is very underused, in which I'm grateful for! I know a little girl named Clementine and she has a sister named Apple and a brother named Basil! I've always been fond of that sib set! Overall, lovely combination!

Stella Josephine- I'm so in love with Stella. We are considering using this for baby girl! I really like the sound of it being paired with Josephine. 

 

 

Boys

Leopold Augustus *Leo* - Leopold was the middle name of my dog, so I have great associations with it  :D I love the name and adding Augustus to it gives a very royal feeling. 

Edmund Clarence- I'm not to keen on either of these names. Seems a bit off when paired together. 

Hector Nathaniel- Hector is not my style. Nathaniel is ok but seems to southern to be with Hector. 

Rupert Thaddeus *Rupe/Rupie*- Love Thaddeus. I like the combo switched around, Thaddeus Rupert. Very nice!

Lucian Thomas *Luc*- Lucian is not my style but I like it with Thomas.

Bridget Rosemary "Birdie" - I love this. Birdie is such a cute, old-fashioned nn. I would love to meet a little girl named Birdie.

Cecily Thomasine "Lily" - I'm not a fan of Lily, but the combo is beautiful. I love Cecily and Thomasine is so pretty and unusual in the mn spot.

Mabel Constance "May/Bel" - I love Mabel! It's such a pretty name, and May is an adorable nn. Constance is wonderful as a mn.

Elsa Clementine "Elle/Elsie" - Elsa Catherine is on our short list for a girl. I love it so much. It's cute enough for a little girl, but would work perfectly for a grown woman as well. Elsie is a great nn. I'm not a huge fan of Clementine, but the combo is nice.

Stella Josephine - Stella isn't really my favorite. It reminds me too much of Estelle from Friends. Stella Josephine is a very nice combo, regardless of who the name reminds me of! (:

 

Leopold Augustus "Leo" - I like this; it feels very regal. I especially like Augustus.

Edmund Clarence - I'm not a huge fan; Teddy would make a cute nn though. (:

Hector Nathaniel - I love Hector; it's very heroic. Nathaniel sounds very handsome with it and balances it out nicely.

Rupert Thaddeus "Rupe/Rupie" - I'm not a fan of either name, but they sound nice together.

Lucian Thomas "Luc" - Lucian isn't my style (I prefer Lucius,) but it sounds nice with Thomas. Luc is a nice nickname.

Holly

Adela / Adele

April

Liv

Augusta

Sylvia / Sylvie

Graham / Graeme

Ckark

Isaac "Ike"

Thank you for your wonderful replies! I'm glad that you liked so many of my names :)

 

Thaddeus Rupert is lovely Emily, but I prefer Rupert as a first name. So handsome, although it might remind people of the bear.

 

Thank you so much nessielove. I wouldn't ever use Stella for my child, it's the name of my dad's cat, but I love how elegant it feels, and it's association to the stars. I love Teddy as a nickname for Edmund! I was also pondering Ned, since that's used for Edward, but I'm not sure if it works. As for your suggestions I like these: Louisa, Bonnie, Etta, Sylvie, Nell, Astrid, Paris, Heath, Clark, Oscar, Ellis, Henry, Rhys, Linden, and Robin.

 

 

I've also added Maisie Wilhelmina to my list, opinions?

Maisie Wilhelmina - I love both names! Maisie is so sweet and I love it a whole lot more than Macy. Wilhelmina may not be my favorite name but I really like it paired with Maisie! Great combination! 

 

 

You have so many lovely choices! Your babies will be top notch scholars with names like these!

Girls

Bridget Rosemary *Birdie*

I think Bridget is such an underused classic, and it sounds lovely with Rosemary.  Birdie is a cute nickname for a little girl!

Cecily Thomasine *Lily*

Thomasine isn't my style, but Cecily "Lily" is gorgeous!

Mabel Constance *May/Bel*

A little old-fashioned for my taste, but Mabel is lovely, and May / Bel are both cute too!

Elsa Clementine *Elle/Elsie*

Elsa is absolutely adorable!  I love the nickname Elsie.

Stella Josephine

Such a stunning combo!

 

I love your girls' names!  :wub: 

 

 

Boys

Leopold Augustus *Leo*

A little long and clunky in my personal opinion but still handsome.  I love Leo!  Have you considered Leo Augustus, or Leopold August?

Edmund Clarence

Again, a little too clunky for me, but still nice.

Hector Nathaniel

Not my style, but nice flow!

Rupert Thaddeus *Rupe/Rupie*

Not my style... I'm not super fond of the nicknames Rupe / Rupie, because I think of the currency rupee!

Lucian Thomas *Luc*

So handsome, love it!
