(Karina, it's no problem at all haha.  :) )

 

#1: Ashley - I like this name, I love your combo, I think it's gorgeous. I personally wouldn't use it as it's nms, but I can definitely appreciate this name. 

 

 

 

#2: Isiana/Izyana - I like the spelling of Isiana. Izzy is a cute nn. 

 

 

 

#3: Audrey - I like Audrey as a mn. It's cute, but nms. 

 

 

 

#4: Kaelyn - I love the spelling (I knew a girl who spelled it Kalinn and I thought it looked choppy.) It's a pretty name.

 

 

 

#5: Marilyn - Love it!!

 

 

 

#6: Aaliyah - I also find the spelling absolutely gorgeous. I love this name. 

 

 

 

#7: Janae - My daughter's mn is Janae and I just love it. I appreciate that someone else likes it too. 

 

 

 

#8: Lydia - I like Lydia but I'm not a fan of Dia, it reminds me of Dio and that makes me sad. Lydie? 

 

 

 

#9: Melody - I have no opinion on this. It's nice I guess.

 

 

 

#10: Violet - I'm a huge fan of colour names. Violet not being high up in my likes, but it's beautiful nonetheless. 

 

 

 

***

 

 

 

#1: Hayden - I love Hayden on a boy, I can't stand it on a girl. 

 

 

 

#2: Andrew - Same  ;) 

 

 

 

#3: Dean - NMS but a handsome name. 

 

 

 

#5: Austin - It's on my list too, absolutely adore Austin.

 

 

 

#5: Adam - It's nice, but not something I would use.

 

 

 

#6: Kellin - Love it too babe. 

 

 

 

#7: Mackenzie - I don't really like it on a boy, but Kenny is a cute nn. 

 

 

 

#8: Alan/Allan - I don't think it's old at all. It should make a come bad, imo. Alan Ashby popped in my head right away.

 

 

 

#9: Ashley - I prefer it on a girl, but I can appreciate it on a guy. It works for both.

 

 

 

#10: Brook - I like the absence of the e, it makes it more masculine. It's alright. I don't hate it or love it.

#1: Ashley - My first thought about this name is that it's overused. Then I realized that everybody I know named Ashley is my age. So, a baby born today would probably be the only Ashley in her age group. As a name, it's not a favorite, but if you like it, go for it.

 

 

#2: Isiana/Izyana - I had never heard this name before I saw you talking about it. Where did you come across this name? It is very pretty, and could be an alternative to the more popular Isabella. Izzy is a cute nickname.

 

 

 

#3: Audrey - Audrey is lovely, either as a first name or a middle name. One of my favorites from you list.

 

 

 

#4: Kaelyn - I prefer Kaitlin. Kaelyn looks made-up to me.

 

 

 

#5: Marilyn - I really have no opinion one way or the other on this one. I probably wouldn't use it, but it's not a bad name.

 

 

 

#6: Aaliyah - Pretty sound. Unusual but probably well known enough that people won't misspell or mispronounce it.

 

 

 

#7: Janae - This one is not bad. I much prefer it to Jane, which I find boring. Janae has so much more personality, IMO.

 

 

 

#8: Lydia - So pretty! I used to hate this name, but it has been really growing on me recently.

 

 

 

#9: Melody - Melody is a very cute name.

 

 

 

#10: Violet - I'm with you on this one. I've begun to like it more recently.

 

 

 

***

 

 

 

#1: Hayden - I've had a soft spot for this name for a long while.

 

 

 

#2: Andrew - This is a nice name, and Hayden Andrew Dean is a very handsome combo.

 

 

 

#3: Dean - Not as crazy about this one, but it makes a good middle name.

 

 

 

#5: Austin - I've never liked this name.

 

 

 

#5: Adam - I like Adam a lot.

 

 

 

#6: Kellin -Nice name. I prefer the spelling Kellen or Kellan.

 

 

 

#7: Mackenzie - I've never thought of Kenny as a nn for Mackenzie, but I like it. That being said, this is a handsome name that was traditionally a masculine name, but I would be wary of using since it's more commonly used on girls now.

 

 

 

#8: Alan/Allan - I like the sound of this, particularly as a middle name. I don't think it's too "old" sounding.

 

 

 

#9: Ashley - I prefer this name on girls. On a boy it reminds me of Ashley Wilkes from Gone With the Wind, and he's kind of a wimp. XD 

 

 

 

#10: Brook - I knew a guy in college named Brooks, so I can totally see this on a boy. I agree that dropping the e at the end makes it more masculine.

 

 

 

My favorites on your girls list are Audrey, Lydia, Melody, and Violet. On your boys list, my favorites are Hayden, Andrew, Adam, and Kellin.

@babynamingbailey: Thanks for the feedback, really appreciate it.

@Marvelous_Things: Because I didn't like Isabelle/Isabella/Isabel/Isobel/Isolde, etc. I wanted to make a unique name with the nn Izzy, so I just started mixing names together and got Isiana! And thank you for your feedback.

Just quickly chirping in, if you like Izzy but not Isabel/Isolde and its many alternatives, there's also Isadora, Isabeau or any name containing the letters "i" and "z" or with a similar sound (i.e Elizabeth or Esmeralda nn Izzy)

@PaperHeart: Isadora, Isabaeu and Esmeralda are nms. I really love Elizabeth, but don't think I could use it as a first name as it has gotten very popular. Wdyt?

I think Elizabeth isn't that common as a first name anymore. It's well known but not trendy by any means. (At least not in my area) You'll find there's always one or two wherever you go (people like the classics) but that shouldn't deter you if you like it. And Elizabeth nn Izzy is fun and quirky. (That in mind, Isabella nn Bella/Izzy HAS actually become a trend so if you're worried about it, that's something to look in to)

But you could use a different form of Elizabeth as well, like Liesel, Eliza, Lisbeth, Liza, Elisabetta etc. Which could all work with the nn Izzy.
