Hullo! I've been reconstructing my lists recently, as you probably know, and I would love some opinions on what I have so far, and maybe some suggestions if you feel up to it :-)

Girls:
Celeste Isabella 'Essie'
Penelope 'Poppy'
Evadne/Evelyn 'Evie' - I cannot find a full name for Evie that I love, but I don't think Evie could stand on it's own. Any ideas?
Madeleine 'Maisie' - Does Maisie work as a nickname for Madeleine?
Talia

Boys:
Easton James 'EJ'
Harvey Lee
Campbell
Dempsey
Henry
Felix
Nash

Thanks in advance lovelies <3

Celeste Isabella 'Essie' - Ahh, so girly and beautiful.  I picture a ballerina, but she may be a wrestler, lol, you never know.

Penelope 'Poppy' - I'm not a fan of the nickname Poppy because it's a name for a grandpa.  But I love Penelope, so spunky.

 

Evadne/Evelyn 'Evie' - I definitely prefer Evelyn because I don't know how to pronounce Evadne I just don't like the look of it.  It seems like a type of medication based on how the name looks.  Evelina is a girly Ev- name.  I love the nickname Evie, so girly.  I suppose Evie could stand on it's own, but I think it is better to have a professional formal name to go by even if you aren't going to call her that.  And that way, she knows you're serious when (on rare occasions) you use her full name, that would mean she's in trouble lol.

Madeleine 'Maisie' - Is Madeleine pronounced Mad-uh-LINE or Mad-uh-LYNN, lol?  I love this name, but my favorite spelling is Madelyn (pronounced Mad-uh-LYNN), and then second Madeline (pronounced Mad-uh-LINE).  I think the Mad-uh-LYNN flows easier off the tongue than Mad-uh-LINE.  Mad-uh-LYNN just seems more natural to say.

Talia - This would be my name if I were a vampire (I know they don't exist, lol).  Talia is a very graceful sounding name and I picture a ballerina as well, but like I said, she might be a wrestler or a tomboy.  As girly as a name sounds, it doesn't make you girly.

Boys:
Easton James 'EJ' - I adore this.  I love Easton, and I don't normally like James but with Easton, it is so handsome.  The nickname EJ is cool.

Harvey Lee - The -ey in Harvey and the -ee in Lee clash.  Harvey is kind of old-man sounding, which isn't a bad thing.  I think (unless Lee is honoring) you could do better with the middle name.

Campbell - It's got that southern charm, the sporty nickname Cam... This name is kind of everything all in one.  Very handsome and I really like it.

Dempsey - Not my style.

Henry - Sounds like a smart boy... It's not my style, because it's just not, lol.  I can't really explain why.

Felix - Not my style.

Nash - Not my style.

I will post a full reply when I have more time, but for Evie:
Eve (simple, but Evie works for it)
Eva
Evangeline / Evangelina / Evangelica
Genevieve
Eibhlin (prn Ev-lin) it's the gaelic form of Evelyn, said slightly differently. I like it :)
Geneva
Maeva


& I love your boy names! Just one warning: Harvey Lee is a sketchy combo due to Lee Harvey Oswald. I automatically thought of a murderous villian.... I quite like Harvey, just not with Lee. Is Lee honoring? Maybe Felix Lee or Campbell Lee? And Harvey ____?

Thanks Ash. I know two Evies, both under ten, but I can't picture it on a grown adult for some reason, Maisie as well.

 

Celeste Isabella 'Essie' - Ahh, so girly and beautiful.  I picture a ballerina, but she may be a wrestler, lol, you never know.

Penelope 'Poppy' - I'm not a fan of the nickname Poppy because it's a name for a grandpa.  But I love Penelope, so spunky.

 

Evadne/Evelyn 'Evie' - I definitely prefer Evelyn because I don't know how to pronounce Evadne I just don't like the look of it.  It seems like a type of medication based on how the name looks.  Evelina is a girly Ev- name.  I love the nickname Evie, so girly.  I suppose Evie could stand on it's own, but I think it is better to have a professional formal name to go by even if you aren't going to call her that.  And that way, she knows you're serious when (on rare occasions) you use her full name, that would mean she's in trouble lol.

Madeleine 'Maisie' - Is Madeleine pronounced Mad-uh-LINE or Mad-uh-LYNN, lol?  I love this name, but my favorite spelling is Madelyn (pronounced Mad-uh-LYNN), and then second Madeline (pronounced Mad-uh-LINE).  I think the Mad-uh-LYNN flows easier off the tongue than Mad-uh-LINE.  Mad-uh-LYNN just seems more natural to say.

Talia - This would be my name if I were a vampire (I know they don't exist, lol).  Talia is a very graceful sounding name and I picture a ballerina as well, but like I said, she might be a wrestler or a tomboy.  As girly as a name sounds, it doesn't make you girly.

Felix - Not my style.

Nash - Not my style.

 

Thank you Madi. I think over here we just use Grandpa or Granddad not Poppy; I know a one year old named Poppy who is so sweet. I also like Penny and Nell for Penelope. Evadne is ev-add-nee, but I think that I'm leaning towards Evelyn or just Evie. Madeleine is pronounced mad-uh-line, which is my preferred pronunciation. If I were to use Lee it would be honoring my sister, Kimberleigh, maybe a spunkier name with the middle name Lee.

Evangeline / Evangelina / Evangelica

Thanks Addy. Eve is nice, but I wouldn't be inclined to use a nickname I don't think. I quite like Eibhlin as well, the pronunciation is lovely but I'm not sure about how it looks. Lee is honoring, but I might switch it up a little. Still a lot of thinking to be done lol, but things are coming together I think.

Celeste Isabella 'Essie' - I absolutely ADORE Essie as a nickname for Celeste. I like Isabella, but this combo feels a little s-sound heavy
Penelope 'Poppy' - Love both!!
Evadne/Evelyn 'Evie' - Evie is nice and I think it can stand on it's own. I do love Evelyn though. It's a classic. :)
Madeleine 'Maisie' - In my opinion, Maisie could work as a nickname for Madeleine although i will admit I prefer nicknames that are more obvious. Think Penny for Penelope or Maddy for Madeleine, but Maisie is nice too and it's cute!
Talia - not my style, so I'm kinda eh on this one. What about Talia Celeste? I think that has a great flow!

Boys:
Easton James 'EJ' - I'm kind of over Easton/Weston/East/West/etc, but I adore EJ and James is one of my favorite boy names of all time. :wub:
Harvey Lee - I like this, but I feel like it's missing something....are you a fan of two middle names? Because I think this combo would be even better with another name attached at the end!
Campbell - not my style, especially as a first name
Dempsey - kinda cutesy, but I can only think of the actor, Patrick Dempsey. I think if you're a HUGE fan then it's kind of cool, but otherwise it's just kinda weird in my opinion
Henry - Another one of my favorite boy names!!! LOVE it.
Felix - I like, but don't love. I think it could be great in the right combo. Ohhh how about Harvey Lee Felix? I love that!
Nash - I like this, but at the same time I think it's a little hipster-y and trendy

Thank you Alyssa. I agree that Celeste Isabella is a little S heavy, but I love it. Evelyn has been growing on me, so she's currently my Evie choice. Talia Celeste is nice but I prefer Celeste as a first. I've been pondering Natalia nn Talia recently, but I haven't made my mind up on that one yet.

 

I also adore EJ, ever since I heard it on a TV show I've loved it, and James honours a lot of people for me, even though I'm not quite convinced it's the best for the middle spot. I do like two middle names, but I go back and forth on whether to have them or not. If I did I'd like two honouring middles, and I'm also thinking about using Lee for the girls too, which would be Leigh. I think Campbell and Dempsey will just be GPs for me, I can't picture myself actually using them. Harvey Lee Felix is cute! I might relegate Nash to the middle spot. Thanks again!

 

Ooooooh, I LOVE Nash. Especially with the nickname Asher. It's on my list and I am totally loving it right now. 

 

Thank you :) I don't think I'd use a nn for Nash, but Asher is cute.
