Phoebe Hera Elizabeth
Brennan Michael Lukas
Ophelia Niamh Sinead
Ezekiel ("Easy") Francis Benedict
Margaux Annie Matilde

:)

 

Phoebe – As far as ‘P’ names go Phoebe is one of my favourites as its beautiful and has the wonderful meaning of being bright and pure. It is a name that suits both a young child and an adult, it will also age well. I give it a 9/10.

Hera – It’s not a name I would use myself but as far as mythology names go Hera is easily spelled and pronounced. Hera is also the Greek Queen of the gods which adds a bit of royalty to it. I give it an 8/10.

Elizabeth – I’m a little biased on this name seeing as its one of my middle names. That said I do genuinely think that Elizabeth is a beautiful name as both a first and middle name that is a timeless classic and naturally ages well. It has the meaning of God is my Oath or Messenger of God. I give it a 10/10.

Phoebe Hera Elizabeth – For so reason I’m just loving this name combination despite its mismatched names, as they are all different styles. I think the fact that they are all from different style of names they balance each other to make a beautiful meaning name that will age well. I give it a 10/10.

 

Brennan – I’m not that much of a fan of this name as every time I hear it I always think it’s meant to be Brendon. Despite that it is a nice handsome name that will age will and suits any age. I give it an 8/10.

Michael – I don’t like this name much as it’s overused (unless it’s a family name) but it is a strong classic name that ages well. I give it a 9/10.

Lukas – I find Lukas to be a handsome name that ages well and has the possible nickname of Luke. It’s one of those names that works well as both a first and middle name in the right combination. I do however think it looks better spelled Lucas. I give it an 8/10.

Brennan Michael Lukas – This is actually a tough one for several reasons. Every time I say it out loud I keep saying Brendon instead of Brennan, but I also think it sounds and flows well as Brennan Lukas Michael. Either way the names all sound and flow well together and will age well. I give it a 9/10.

 

Ophelia – It’s not a name I would even use myself but assuming I’m pronouncing it correctly it does sound like a pretty name. To me it has the same feel as Octavia and Odette which are both great names. It’s a name that I can picture on both a little girl and old lady. I give it an 8/10.

Niamh – Not a fan of this name at all. As a first name it would be hard to pronounce and possible even spell, as a middle name it’s a little more suited as it would be used very often. By just looking at it it’s hard to tell if it’s meant for a boy or girl. I give it a 6/10.

Sinead – At first glance I thought this was a boy’s name but after trying to pronounce it, which was a little difficult, I realised that I had actually seen and heard it on a girl in my class back in High School. As a first name at first glance it can be considered confusing but once known it is actually a pretty name that would most likely be the only one in the class. As a middle name I think it’s more appealing as you don’t have to worry about pronouncing or spelling it correctly all the time, unless it’s a common name where you live. I give it a 7/10.

Ophelia Niamh Sinead – Surprisingly this is actually a very beautiful name set that sounds and flows well together. If someone had to ask for full name it may be problematic as all three names are uncommon but in saying that being ask for full name doesn’t happen very often. I give it a 9/10.

 

Ezekiel (Easy) – It’s not a name I would use, and had never heard of it until I heard it on Supernatural as one of the angels. Due to the show every time I see or hear Ezekiel I always think of the angel, not that it’s a bad thing as it is a handsome name that I feel will age well. I don’t really like Easy as a nickname for it though and think Zek or Ezek would be better. I give it a 7/10.

Francis – This name looks and sounds very old fashioned to me. However it does have a little more appeal in the middle name slot and it’s a name that will age well. I give it a 7/10.

Benedict – I had never heard of this name until 2010 with Sherlock Holmes being played by the actor Benedict Cumberbatch, ever since I have loved the name Benedict. I find it more appealing than the common Benjamin and it is a name that is handsome and will age well. I give it a 9/10.  

Ezekiel Francis Benedict – Surprisingly all three names sound and flow rather well together and balance each other nicely. I give it an 8/10.

 

Margaux – Not a fan of this name but it is much nicer than Margaret or Margot. It’s a nice French name with beautiful meanings. I give it a 7/10.

Annie – Not a huge fan of this name as it just feels too plain and boring. It also feels more like a nickname for Ann/e or Anna. I give it a 7/10.

Matilde – I’m not a fan of this name and think Matilda is more beautiful however I do love its meanings of Battle Maiden/Strong in war, Strength for battle. I give it an 8/10.

Margaux Annie Matilde – Despite not being a fan of any of the names this name combination does sound and flow rather well. Margaux and Matilde balance Annie out which makes it feel less plain and boring. I give it an 8/10.

 

I hope I've been constructive enough without being too harsh and have helped in some way.

Thanks. Ambrosia is the feminine version of Ambrose, and it means immortal. :) My name styles changed a little since last July...
Girls:

Ashley-Jade *AJ* Marilyn
Kaelyn Victoria
Gabrielle *Gabi* Paige
Rowan Elise/Elizabeth/Aaliyah (still can't decide)
Isiana *Izzy* Hunter Layne


 &

 Boys:

Hayden Ambrose
Nicholas *Nicky* Dean
Andrew *Andy* Seth
Austin *Aussie* Michael
Kellin Nathaniel James

 

Ashley-Jade (AJ) – I really like the name Ashley (I love it more spelled Ashleigh) and think it’s a beautiful name. I wouldn’t use Jade myself but it is a pretty name that will age well. I’ve never been a big fan of double first names as I find it a bit too much, I do however like the nickname AJ. Perhaps just use Ashley as the first name and Jade as the middle name (or double middle name). I give it an 8/10.

Marilyn – I don’t normally like this name as every time I hear it I think of Marilyn Manson. It also feels a little dated, like an old lady would have. It does however have the nice connection to Marilyn Monroe. I give it a 7/10.

Ashley-Jade Marilyn – Ashley Marilyn sounds and flows better than Ashley-Jade Marilyn and so does just Ashley Jade. I still feel that Ashley is better on its own and to use Jade Marilyn as the middle name (double middle name). I give it an 8/10.

 

Kaelyn – I wouldn’t use this name myself but I really like it as I find it very beautiful and will age well. The only trouble is there are so many variations of its spelling, I myself have trouble finding the right spelling as half the time it doesn’t feel right even though it is e.g. Kahlan, Kaylin, Cailin (this is how my cousin spells hers), C or a K it’s endless. I give it a 9/10.

Victoria – For someone reason I’ve never really liked this name, part of it may have been due to a girl in High School. Victoria itself is a nice historic name with a royal feel such as Queen Victoria. It is a timeless classic that ages well and suits all ages. I give it a 9/10.

Kaelyn Victoria – Kaelyn Victoria sounds and flows very well together and suits any age. Since Kaelyn means pure and Victoria means victory, having both names together they mean pure victory which I think is lovely. I give it a 10/10.

 

Gabrielle – I love this name and it’s a personal favourite (might have something to do with Xena) as I find it very beautiful and not overused unlike the many other names that end in elle or ella, not a huge fan of the nickname Gabi though. It also has the meaning of God Is my Strength/Might. I give it a 10/10.

Paige – I love the name Paige as it’s simple yet pretty. It’s a name that will age well and suits any age person. I give it a 9/10.

Gabrielle Paige – I’m really loving this name set as it sounds and flows very well together, and looks very pretty. It’s a name that will age well and suits any age. I give it a 10/10.

 

Rowan – I don’t like this name on a boy (I prefer Ronan) let alone for a girl, it’s too masculine. I give it a 6/10.

Elise – I love the name Elise, although for me it’s one of the few names were I prefer its alternative spelling Elyse. Either way I think it is a beautiful name and has the meaning of God is my Oath or Messenger of God (the same as Elizabeth). It is a pretty name that suits all ages and will age well. I give it a 9/10.

Elizabeth - I’m a little biased on this name seeing as its one of my middle names. That said I do genuinely think that Elizabeth is a beautiful name as both a first and middle name that is a timeless classic and naturally ages well. It has the meaning of God is my Oath or Messenger of God. I give it a 10/10.

Aaliyah – I wouldn’t use it myself but I really like the way Aaliyah sounds. Aaliyah reminds me of the R&B singer which is the only time I’ve ever really heard it. Aaliyah is beautiful and will age well. I give it a 9/10.

Rowan Elise/Elizabeth/Aaliyah – All middle names do flow well with Rowan but I honestly feel that Aaliyah Elizabeth would be perfect. I give Rowan Elise/Elizabeth/Aaliyah (all 3 combos) a 9/10.

 

Isiana (Izzy) – It’s not a name I would use myself or would have ever considered but in saying that it is actually a nice name. I like the way it’s pronounced, to me it as the same/similar feel that Luciana has which adds to its appeal. I also think that Izzy makes for a nice nickname. I give it an 8/10.

Hunter – Again I wouldn’t use this name myself but I do like it as it’s very masculine. However I feel that it’s a boy’s name and not suitable for a girl. For a boy I give it an 8/10, for a girl I give it a 5/10.

Layne – I’m not really sure of what to think of this name. To me it sounds more like a last name than a first or middle name, it also doesn’t feel that attractive. It does make it a little more appealing with it spelled Layne instead of Lane but it also give it a teen momish/trendy feel to it due to a lot of names adding a Y to them. The name does have a bit more appeal added to it due to the character on Gilmore Girls. I give it a 7/10.  

Isiana Hunter Layne – I’m not liking this combination at all but I’ll admit depending on the last name it may sound and flow rather well, the problem is both Hunter and Layne are considered last names and in this combo they just sound like a list of names. Isiana Hunter and Isiana Layne sound and flow better separately without knowing last name, personally I think Isiana Layne is the better of the two. Overall I give it a 7/10.

 

Hayden – I’m not the biggest fan of this name as I prefer just Aidan but I do like Hayden more than Jaden. It’s a very handsome name that feels modern and will age well. To me Hayden seems more popular out of all the aydens/aidans as I have never met any of the other ‘aidans’ but have known several Hayden’s. I give it an 8/10.

Ambrose – I’m not the hugest fan of this name as I’m not liking it on a boy at all, as it looks and feels too feminine. If it honours a family member then it may be usable but I think its better suited for a girl (I’m not a fan of it for a girl either). I do however like its meaning of Immortal, and I know the female version Ambrosia is considered food for the gods. I give it a 7/10.

Hayden Ambrose – Despite not liking Ambrose I do think Hayden Ambrose actually sound and flow well together. Surprisingly they fit well together and balance each other nicely. I give it a 9/10.

 

Nicholas – I love this name as it has a royal feel to it as well as the ’modern’ Nick as a nickname. It fits well as both a first and middle name. I give it a 9/10.

Dean – I love this name as it’s simple yet handsome. Whenever I hear Dean it forever reminds me of the actors Dean Cain (Superman) and Dean O’Gorman (Fili), as well as the character Dean Winchester (SPN). I think it makes for a great first and middle name and is actually on my list as well. It is a name that suits any age and will age well. I give it a 9/10.

Nicholas Dean – I’m loving this name combination, it just feels so handsome and it’s well balanced. Nicholas and Dean sound and flow very well together and will age well. I give it a 10/10.

 

Andrew (Andy) - I love this name as it’s very handsome and has the meaning manly/strong (it is also my brother’s name). It is an old time classic that will age well, I also love the nickname Andy more than Drew. I give it a 9/10.

Seth - I'm not the hugest fan of this name but it is slowly growing on me. The name Seth always reminds me of the Egyptian god and for some reason snakes. Despite that it is a strong simple yet edge (if that makes sense) name that ages well. I give it an 8/10.

Andrew Seth – I’m loving this combination as it’s well balanced and is very handsome. Both names well age well and suit a child, an adult and an elderly person. I give it a 10/10.

 

Austin (Aussie) – I wouldn’t use it myself but I do like it on a boy. It is strong and handsome name that will age well in today’s society. I give it a 9/10.

Michael – I don’t like this name much as it’s overused (unless it’s a family name) but it is a strong classic name that ages well. I give it a 9/10.

Austin Michael – Despite not being a huge fan of either name I’m loving this combination. By using a more modern name and a more classical name it balances the name out nicely. Austin Michael sound and flows very well together and will age well. I give it a 10/10.

 

Kellin – I wouldn’t use this name myself but it has a strong and handsome feel to it. I have only met one other person with this name back in primary school, it is common but not overused. I do however think its better spelled Killian. I give it an 8/10.

Nathaniel – I wouldn’t use this name myself as I prefer just Nathan but it works well as both a first and middle name. It is a handsome name that means ‘god’s gift, god has given’ which makes it even more wonderful. I give it an 8/10.

James – I love this name as it’s a classic as well as handsome, and you know it will age well. It works wonderfully as both a first and middle name. I give it a 9/10.

Kellin Nathaniel James – I’m loving this name set as it has both a modern and classic feel to it. The names balance each other out wonderfully. I give it a 10/10.

 

I hope I've been constructive enough without being too harsh and have helped in some way.
