So I've been gone from the site for a while and my name lists were last updated over a year ago. I still love a lot of the names, but some aren't as great to me anymore. I usually have a lot of trouble coming up with new names I love, so I was wondering if you guys could give me suggestions based on the style/sounds of these names:

 

Amity Noelle

Quincy Violet

Aubrey Juliet

Isla Genevieve

Cassia

Lucia

Lola

 

Elliot Alexander

Zachary August

Jude Mathias

Ellis/Elias

James

Oliver

 

I'm not really looking for combos, the combos I put here are just ones straight off my list that I still love. Also, even though Amity is my favorite for a girl, I'm not into many virtue names. I don't mind unisex or even names that are heavily associated with the other gender, so don't let masculinity/femininity stop you from suggesting a name (even though I know most of these are compliant with their intended gender).

 

Thanks so much in advance!!! :)

For girl name suggestions, I looked at some slightly vintage yet quirky feminine choices that go along with a lot of the ones on your list, like Isla and Lucia and Lola.  I also selected names that sound similar to the ones on your list.

 

Iris

Luna

Amelia

Anna

Celia

Cecily

Scarlett

Gwendolyn

Rosalie

Aurora

Lyra

Nora

Penelope

Charlotte

Ivy

Alice

Seraphina

Matilda

Cora

Hazel

Ruby

Mabel

Clara 

Jane

 

As for the boys, I looked at more classic names, as well as a few Biblical ones.  I also considered names that sound similar to the ones on your list.

 

Everett

Alec

Atticus

Gideon

Caspian

Cassius

Milo

Finn

Avery

Sebastian

Caleb

Joseph

Leo

Henry 

Miles

Jasper

Theodore

Felix

Asher

Andrew

Ezra

Flynn

 

Hope this helps!

Aaahh thank you guys!! I really appreciate it!! A lot of the ones you suggested are ones I already really liked but weren't at the forefront of my brain. Definitely very helpful in working on my list.

Meghan<3
Iris, Anna, Nora, Charlotte, Ivy, and Cora are all names I love, I'm especially liking Cora right now.
And I had never really thought about Cecily before, but I'm pretty into it!!
Tbh all of your suggestions for girls are right up my alley, I didn't realize that my naming style was so easy to pinpoint, haha!
As for boys, I love Sebastian and Theodore (especially with the nn Teddy, but I really dislike Theo?? haha)
Some of them I really objectively like but for some reason they don't feel right? Idk how to explain it, boys names just don't come easy to me I guess, haha. But in that category are Milo, Felix, and Asher.
Ezra I'm really really starting to like though...

PaperHeart
Thanks!
Of the girls names, I love Audrey, but I love Aubrey just that teeny bit more. They're always switching back and forth in my head and unfortunately you just can't have both, haha.
Zoe (though I prefer Zoey), Amelie, Verity (one of my two other favorite virtue names, the other being Serenity), Autumn, and Sienna are all great
Daisy has been growing on me. I don't know if I quite love it, but every time I see it, I stop to consider it.
Leonie is really cute!! Leona is a family name (my name, LeAnne, is my mom's "modern" derivative of it and tbh I often wish she would have just gone with Leona because I like it a lot), and Leonie jut seems like a spunkier version.
Ahh I remember being in love with Coralie a yearish ago but being indecisive about it. I'm thinking it definitely has a place on my list, especially given how much I love Cora as well.
On the boys list, a lot of names in your list are things that were on mine and that I still like but that have lost their luster to me over time. Like I said, I have a hard time getting excited about boy names, or at least I get excited about a lot fewer of them. So a lot of them are what I would call my style, but just don't feel right.
I'm loving Sebastian and Theodore, like I mentioned above.
Something about the style of Keats really intrigues me, but not the name itself? If that makes sense?
Seth, Nolan, and Archer (I'm liking the nn Archie lately) are a few that I consider a lot and like.
I like Holden but I'm not sure about it since it's so heavily associated with Catcher in the Rye (not that I don't love that book, but it still seems somewhat pretentious to me).
I really like Dexter but had a cat by that name who died. Any other suggestions specifically similar to Dexter? I think I could really enjoy more of this style.
