(This is Raven by the way...I changed my user information)

 

Hermione
Gorgeous. I know you love this name and I can see you having a little girl with this name. Love it as a first name. It would be really hard to pair up with a middle, though, because it's so complete.
Hermione Julia, Hermione Claire, Hermione Jade

Isobel
I think this one is a little too popular, but that's just my opinion, because it's clearly a classic for a reason. However, I do prefer it as a middle.
Isobel Robin, Isobel Cecily, Isobel Hera
Hermione Isobel, Winona Isobel, Freya Isobel


Martha
I don't particularly like this name myself, and I think it would be best as a middle.
Robin Martha, Cecily Martha, Noelle Martha

Elsa
This name is definitely growing on me, I think it's adorable in the first name spot. It's actually kind of cute with Hermione, in a sibset.
Elsa Robin, Elsa Catherine, Elsa Juliette

Josephine
I really think Josephine is a beautiful name, and I think it pairs well with Hermione and Elsa.
Josephine Lyra, Josephine Claire, Josephine Maya

Amelia
I'm 50/50 about Amelia. I want to love it, but something is holding me back. Regardless, it's a great first name.
Amelia Josephine, Amelia Catherine, Amelia Christabel

Robin/Robyn
I think Robin is gorgeous, on either gender. It works well with a more feminine name.
Robin Josephine, Robin Samantha, Robin Rosalie

Julia
I prefer this as a middle, and I also prefer the alternative Juliet/Juliette.
Julia Hermione, Julia Cecily, Clementine Julia
 

Brogan
I think this name is pretty darn cute (though, I do prefer Logan)!
Brogan Michael, Brogan Edmund, Oliver Brogan

Arthur
I prefer Arthur as a middle name, but it is handsome and possibly due for a comeback?
Arthur Lucien, Lucien Arthur, Warrick Arthur

Rupert
Again, this is more a middle name to me.
Henry Rupert, Lucien Rupert, Isaac Rupert

Hugo
I love Hugo as a first name. (: So handsome.
Hugo Edmund, Hugo Henry, Hugo Alexander

Henry
I also love Henry. I feel like they wouldn't be usable on brothers, however...too similar IMO.
Henry Graeme, Henry Reuben, Henry Leopold

Reuben
I absolutely adore Reuben. It was a nickname my big sister had for me!
Reuben Gray, Reuben Michael, Reuben Arthur


Rachael
Claire
Catherine (mn)
Samantha (mn)
*Cecily (Cecily Catherine, Cecily Anne, Cecily Primrose)
*Lyra (Lyra Alexis, Lyra Francesca, Lyra Imogen)
*Winona (Winona Grace, Winona Olive, Winona Faye)

*Graeme (mn) (Felix Graeme, Lucien Graeme, Oliver Graeme)
Richard (mn)
Michael
*Edmund (Edmund Knox, Edmund Ray, Edmund Quinn)
*Hector (Hector James, Hector Phillip, Hector George)
*Lucien (Lucien William, Lucien David, Lucien John)

I'm off to bed soon as Arch just fell asleep and I gotta sleep when he does ;) But I'll give some quick opinions and hopefully remember to come back with suggestions!

 

Hermione - I think its just beautiful <3 Its almost sing songy but in a good way :) I'd love to see more people starting to use it so it can become less strictly "harry potter" and feel more usable to those who've never read it *cough cough people like me* lol

Isobel - Beautiful. I love the spelling Isabel, but as a whole for whatever reason the name looks WAY better ending in -bel rather than -belle. Idk why, I'm the same with other names too (ie Annabel/Anabel).

Martha - In my opinion it still feels a little dated like my mothers age rather than old fashioned like my grandmothers age. For some odd reason, old fashioned like my grandparents age has a fresh feel while my mothers age just feels old. If that makes sense? 

Elsa - I adore Elsa and nn Elsie <3 <3

Josephine - beautiful!

Amelia - I really love it, or Amelie <3 

Robin / Robyn - not my style. Mostly because I associate it with a character in a book I read

Julia - adorable <3

 

Brogan - I like! I feel it could perfectly fit in with a kiddo of this age, has the beginning like Brody or Broderick and ends like Logan. And -an endings are in.

Arthur - NMS but nice

Rupert - I love Rupert <3

Hugo - I like, makes me think of that cute kid in the movie Hugo

Henry - so so so gosh darn cute!

Reuben - I'm not sure if its purely an American thing as I see the name pop up often in English area's but never in America... but in the USA theres a popular sandwich called a Reuben :P So anytime I hear the name it feels the same as naming your kiddo after any meal like stroganoff or goulash lol

 

Rachael is pretty <3 I like Claire, but it feels very filler as a middle name to me so I prefer it as a first. I adore Catherine, so cute! Samantha is precious. Cecily is growing on me. I love Lyra! And Winona is pretty, makes me think of Edward Scissorhands just because of the actress who plays the lady Edward loves. (its been a while, I can't remember her name :l )

 

Graeme I like, I've got Graham on my list :) Richard is nice, my dads name is Richard :) As is my grandfathers name, an uncle, etc. Popular name on both sides of the family lol. Michael I'm biased towards with my other half Mikey ;) Edmund is nice, I really like it. MUCH more than Edward! Hector is nice. And I love Lucien! I know a little boy named Lucian and he's the cutest!! 

 

Hehe it takes guys a while to be okay with discussing those sorts of things ;) At least he'll discuss it at all! Some guys never will lmao! (though I don't think I could date a guy who refused to talk about it... unless he forfeited his rights in naming all to me bahaha!!)

Thank you so much ladies! I'll try and reply to each of you individually :)

 

 

Raven:

I love Hermione, and Graeme loves it just as much, which is awesome. I like Hermione Claire, but I'm still a little on the fence with Claire, I mean it sounds okay, but it's just a little plain for me. We also have the possibility of Hermione Grace on our list, which I like a little more.

I like all of your Isobel combos, but Freya Isobel is my favourite out of them. Graeme prefers Isabel, but I love the elegance of Isobel, it just feels so pretty to me.

Cecily Martha is pretty, and I like Elsa Catherine and Elsa Juliette. Josephine Lyra is so pretty, I agree that Hermione, Elsa, and Josephine would make a lovely sibset, so cute! Amelia Christabel, Robin Samantha, and Clementine Julia are pretty too :)

Brogan is definitely our top boys name, our first boy is definitely going to be a Brogan :P I like Brogan Edmund, and Oliver Brogan is handsome, but my brother's name is Oliver, so if we use it it will be a middle name :)

Arthur Lucien and Lucien Arthur are handsome, and it's funny you mention about it being ready for a comeback, I actually met a little Arthur today! He's 15 months old and is going to be coming to the nursery I work at, so cute!

Isaac Rupert is nice, and I like Henry Rupert but I worry about the back to back Rs sounding weird. I was a little surprised that Graeme said yes to Rupert, but I'm pretty happy he did lol. Hugo Edmund and Hugo Alexander are handsome, and I like Henry Graeme. Maybe I'd use Hugo and Henry for twins, but I'm not sure I like the idea of using the same initial. I like Reuben Arthur and Reuben Grey.

I like Cecily Anne, Cecily Primrose, Lyra Imogen, Winona Grace, Winona Faye, Felix Graeme, Edmund Knox, Hector James, and Lucien David.

Thank you!

 

Remy:

Thanks for all your wonderful opinions, I'm glad you like our top two (Hermione and Brogan), they're trendy feeling without being trendy, so they'll fit in but not be one of ten in their class. I'm grateful that at least he'll discuss it and we can reach a top two, because I'd go crazy if I didn't know what he liked! Oh gosh! I I had full naming rights I'd take forever to choose! Thanks again :)

 

Brittany:

I like Hermione Jane, Isobel Lyra, Isobel Phoebe, Martha Eloise, Elsa Juliet, Elsa Vivienne, Amelia Robyn, Robyn Cecily, Robyn Victoria, Julia Claire, Rachael Piper, Claire Madeleine, Mia Catherine, Hazel Catherine, Eve Samantha, Cecily Aurora, Lyra Scarlett, Winona Sage, Winona Avery, Brogan August, Brogan Henry, Arthur Rowan, Rupert Max, Hugo Joshua, Henry Cole, Henry Nathaniel, Reuben Eli, Reuben Myles, Felix Graeme, Milo Richard, Seth Richard, Michael Jude, Edmund Rhys, Hector Isaiah, Lucien West, and Lucien Jasper. Thank you!

 

 

I have a lot to go through, and a lot to get Graeme's opinion on, so thank you! Any more opinions or suggestions are welcome, and I'll post a follow up post, once I've talked to Graeme, with our combo choices. Thanks again!
