Thinking about adding some new names to my list, just want to know your first reactions to these, if you like them or not:

 

Sidda

Jubilee - middle name -- only drawback on this name is that I know a girl named this and it could be awkward

Naomi

Eleanor

Scout - middle name

Grey -  middle name

 

Whittaker, nn Whit

Forester, nn Four

Kaiser, nn Kai -- love the history and depth of Kaiser/Caeser

Saevar [prn Sy-var] - Icelandic

Darby

 

I'm crushing pretty hard on Four. I think Ezra and Four would be great for brothers!

I like...
Jubilee - I don't think it'll be awkward unless you call her (the baby) by both her first and middle name all the time.
Eleanor
Grey

Whittaker, nn Whit - this is a GP of mine but I know someone with the last name Whittaker, but with just 1 T. It doesn't fit with my other names and I always associate it with being a polite British boy. My boys will be country boys, so it wouldn't fit for me. I would prefer it spelled with just 1 T and I think it is handsome.

Forester, nn Four - Four is pretty cool (people will probably ask if you're a Divergent fan, lol) but Forester isn't my style. It goes with Whittaker nicely though.

Kaiser - While I am very fond of Ky- names, I DON'T like Kaiser.

Sidda - I think its sweet, though NMS

Jubilee - I know a Jubilee as well, or kind of. My mums church supports a missionary family who has a daughter by that name.

Naomi - I really like it

Eleanor - love it

Scout - its really been growing on me, though I almost prefer it on a boy

Grey - I love it on a boy, don't care for it on a girl

 

Whittaker - handsome, though what always throws me off is how its spelled

Forester - I kinda like it 

Kaiser - I'm not a fan

Saevar - very neat! It'd be more GP to me, but its cool sounding

Darby - cute, I like it.

Sidda - I'm not a fan of this, it just looks and sounds awkward to me, sorry.

Jubilee - I quite like this name, and I don't think it'd be that awkward unless you're quite close.

Naomi - This is nice, and although it's not one I'd use myself I can imagine it'd be cute on someone else's baby.

Eleanor - I love Eleanor, I've recently fallen in love with it myself. I think that Eleanor Jubilee would be cute, or Eleanor Scout/Eleanor Grey.

Scout - I like Scout, although for me it's a bit of a guilty pleasure. I do think it's lovely as a nickname for Scarlett too.

Grey -  I prefer this on boys, but it's lovely as a middle name.

 

Whittaker, nn Whit - Very handsome. I love the nn Whit, although I do think I prefer Whittaker with only one 't'.

Forester, nn Four - I like Forester, but the nickname Four isn't that intuitive for me, at least not in my accent, and it's not really my style.

Kaiser, nn Kai - Kaiser is okay, but for me it's a bit like calling your child King. I love the nickname Kai though.

Saevar [prn Sy-var] - I kind of like this one, but initially I'd pronounce it say-var so the spelling could be confusing. I think it'd be a wonderful middle name though.

Darby - Handsome. Very nice.

 Sidda - Not a fan. Tbh I see it on a housepet.

Jubilee - It's okay but I would never use it. I don't think it's a huge issue that you know someone with this name.

Naomi - I've never been very big on this one.

Eleanor - Love love love this name! The nickname Ellie is really cute too if you like nicknames.

Scout - Eh. Not a fan. I do like its link to To Kill a Mockingbird, though, if that was intentional.

Grey -  I like it on a boy, but I can't really see it on a girl. I don't have any problems with it though.

 

Whittaker, nn Whit - Whit is super cute, but I feel like Whittaker is a bit stiff.

Forester, nn Four - I think this one's really cute and strong at the same time. I like it a lot.

Kaiser, nn Kai - It's okay. I think the nickname Kai brings the tough-and-proper Kaiser down to earth a bit.

Saevar [prn Sy-var] - I think this one's cool and interesting. I like it but in a guilty pleasure sort of way.

Darby - I'm really not a fan and I've never liked this name but there's no particular reason why.

Sidda - I see the appeal, but I'm personally not a fan. It would be great with the right middle name!

Jubilee - I think this one is adorable <3

Naomi - Love Naomi <3 It reminds me of 90210. Word of advice - it definitely needs a very feminine middle name! I have Naomi Alexandra on my list at the moment.

Eleanor - Not a fan personally, but I love the nn Ellie/Elle/Ella <3

Scout - Really like this one as well. I would love it as a first, but to each their own! It's so spunky :)

Grey - Much prefer this spelling for a girl. It makes a really pretty middle name for a girl too!

 

Whittaker - The nn Whit is very handsome, but I'm not a fan of Whittaker, it makes me think of "whiskers."

Forester - Nice sounding, but I prefer Forrest. I really like the uniqueness of the nn Four. I think it sounds much more appealing than it looks in writing.

Kaiser - LOVE. I've always secretly loved this name. I love history, and it makes me think of Caesar and all that jazz. <3 I have Kaiser Joshua on my list currently. <3

Saevar - Another love. I love Icelandic culture and the names are pretty bada$$ if you ask me!

Darby - So cute! But I personally prefer it on a girl.

 

 

Hope this helps!
