I am very classic in my taste of girl names. I like Anna, Agnes, Edie, Charlotte, Ruth. But my taste in boys names seems to be a bit different. I don't know. How would you categorize Whitman? What about Wiley? Elias? August? Are they more trendy or is it just trendy right now to go back to more classical names?

I love (and mostly share) your taste in girls names, I prefer classical too.
And I also find that sometimes, I like names that are less classical for boys.
I'd say that Whitman has a certain "classical feel" to me. Certainly doesn't sound trendy!

I'd say your taste in boys names is unique...not quite classic, but not quite trendy either. Just your own unique taste (:

I would also say that they are unique...that's about the best I could come up with. Or Americanized. I don't know. :unsure:

Katie, I know that you love the nickname Whit, right? (I think it's you, at least :P
I think that Whitman is a very...Victorian style name. Not trendy at all.
Wiley is an old name, but it has a trendy feel, like many would assume its a new take on Riley.
Elias is one of my favourite names. Its sweet and also manly. Again, very old-world or at least old-style.
August isn't my personal taste, but it isn't bad. It's sort of old style again! ;)
I think that all in all, they're very nice names (except Wiley, sorry :unsure: )

And I love Anna and Ruth! So pretty! :o
