I ranked them in order of preference (1 being the best)

1. Celia - I love this! It is traditional but not boring. Unexpected and spunky.
2. Ruby - Very pretty.
3. Clara - I like this but much prefer Celia.
4. Sadie - This has the same appeal for me as Celia & Ruby but has always felt a bit incomplete to me, I think it is the ie ending.
5. Lily - Rather predictable and overused but still a beautiful name.
6. Ava - Ditto
7. Autumn -ehhh.. It is just okay for me.
8. Grace - Nice enough name but it bores me.
9. Piper - I am not a fan though I do love the potential nn Pippa.
10. Ashlyn - Trendy and made up. I don't like this at all.

Combos:
Celia Maeve
Ruby Eleanor
Clara Elizabeth
Sadie Eleanor
Lily Maeve
Ava Isobel

1. Jack - Classic. You can't go wrong with Jack.
2. Finn/Finnegan - Finnegan isn't reflective of my personal tastes but it has character and I would definitely rather see a baby Finn then another baby Lucas/Aidan etc. I prefer Finnian personally.
3. Nicholas - It is predictable and doesn't wow me but it is a nice strong name. I love the potential nn Nicky.
4. Dominic - Again it isn't a favorite of mine but I like it.
5. Colin - I don't have any strong feelings for it either way. I prefer Callum.
6. Graham - ditto to Colin.
7. Joshua - Feels a bit 90's dated. Just okay.
8. Landon - Not my style. It sounds like 'land on' to me. Trendy.
9. Lucas - Not my thing. I feel like it has been done to death. I prefer Luke.
10. Tucker - It rhymes with a 'bad word'. I also get 'tuckered out'. I strongly dislike this one.

Combos:
Jack Matthew? - None of these are really doing anything for me. Jack needs a mn with more interest.
Finnegan Paul
Finn Charles
Nicholas Jude
Dominic Jude
Colin Jude
Graham Charles? - Again none of these choices are really clicking.

I love a lot of names on you list! I think we may have very similar naming style! (:
Grace and Celia are absolutely gorgeous, and one of my favorite names as well.
From your middle name list, I think Grace Eleanor is stunning. As for Celia, I think I like it with Judith, Elizabeth and Pauline.

As far as first names, I also like Lily, Clara and Ruby, while I'm not a huge fan of the others. (Exept maybe Autumn).
Ruby Eleanor
Clara Isobel
Lily Maeve

These are the combos I like best with those names.

As for the boys names. Let's see.
Finn, Jack, Colin, Lucas and Nicholas rank pretty high on my top 20. I think they are all very handsome names.
Here are some middle names suggestions from your list:
Finnegan Matthew, nn Finn.
Jack Hobart
(Truth to be told, Hobart is not my style at all, but I think it's the only one I think really flows)
Colin Michael
Lucas Daniel
Nicholas John (or Paul), nn. Nick


Hope this helped! Let me know what you think (:

Yay, people like some of my names :D

So as far as Ashlyn goes, I love the sound of it, but could never use Aislin (which is the spelling I prefer), so I'm not really sure it should be on the list, I think I'd put Iris on instead!

For girl combos I really like Grace Isobel, Ruby Eleanor, Celia Pauline, Autumn Lindsay, and Sadie Moira

For boys, I understand with Tucker, and it's mostly a guilty pleasure, I just can't let it go.
I really like the combos Nicholas John, Colin Jude, Joshua Matthew.

Any one have any ideas for a middle name for Jack? Even something that isn't on my list.

And for Amory and Hobart, those names really mean a lot to me, any first name ideas for them?

Sorry for all the questions, I just can't seem to make up my own mind lately!

I like Iris! Much prefer it to Ashlyn.

I actually kind of like Amory it has this romantic charm going on. Jack Amory works for me. I can't say that I am a fan of Hobart though. I think you submitted Graham Hobart once in a past game and it seemed to get okay reviews. It isn't terrible just not so much my style. If it has meaning to you use it. Maybe Jack Hobart?

Other Jack combos:
Jack Everett
Jack William
Jack Thomas
Jack Emmett
Jack Elliot
Jack Bennett

I like your style! A bunch of your names make my top list, too.

Grace: I love this name. I think it's classy and beautiful and extra-girly but strong at the same time. If it wasn't my sister's name, it'd definitely be on my future-children list :D. I think it especially makes a nice first name even though it's usually just shoved into the middle name spot.
Autumn: This is nice enough...though I'm not huge on season names. They just seem a little plain to me.
Ava: I adore this name. Everyone complains of it's popularity, but in all honesty I've never met a kid named Ava. Maybe it's a regional thing? Either way, it's a gorgeous name.
Sadie: I love Sadie on a little girl, but I can't help but wondering how it would age. I just can't picture a doctor or lawyer or CEO named Sadie.
Ruby: One of my longtime favorite names. I suppose it has the same sort of feel as Sadie for me...but I like Ruby so much better, so I think I'd be able to get past the cutesy-ness of it.
Celia: SUCH a beautiful name! I love Cecilia, but Celia is even nicer...so clean and simple and extra-classy!
Clara: I think Clara is a great name that is seriously under-appreciated! It has a really homey feel to me, and it's just simple and beautiful.
Lily: LOVE LOVE LOVE Lily. It musters such a pretty image when I hear it, and it's pretty to say and pretty to see written...like your other names: extra-girly, but so beautifully simple. Love it.
Piper: Not exactly my style. Piper seems a little masculine to me...I'm just not crazy about it. I like Pippa as a similar alternative, though!
Ashlyn: I prefer Ashlen...-lyn endings seem a little tryndee for my tastes, but it's a really lovely name. Though I see you also like Iris...I definitely prefer that! It's stunning!!

Grace Elizabeth(This is my sister's name!), Clara Lindsay, Ava Judith, Celia Pauline, Ashlen Pollyanna, Lily Isobel, Iris Eleanor


Graham: I love Grahm. It's so nice and handsome and simple. It makes me think of an extra-cute bookworm! :P
Finn/Finnegan: Finn's super-cute, but I don't care much for Finnegan. It reminds me of the name of some kitschy pub or something.
Tucker: Such a cute name! It's kind of got a laid-back feel and is very fun. It seems a little "western" to me...which I know a lot of people don't care for but which I LOVE!
Joshua: So over-used, IMO...maybe it's just my generation, but there are SO MANY Joshes in this world it makes me fall asleep.
Jack: I have a brother named Jack. I think it's really a nice name and isn't too common...I definitely prefer it to the super-trendy Jackson.
Colin: I like the sound of Colin...I've always been fond of Co- names...Colin, Connor, Colton, etc.
Dominic: I'm not crazy about this one. The spelling looks a bit awkward to me, and it reminds me a little bit of Damien (which I can't stand!). Just not quite my style.
Lucas: I love the name Lucas. It's such a sweet, strong name, and it must not be as popular where I live than everywhere else...I've only met one Lucas in my life!
Landon: MY ALL TIME FAVORITE BOY'S NAME. No matter what else I may say on this website, Landon will always be my favorite. It's so handsome without being too typical-boy's-name (Not a Robert or Tim or Matt or Chris).
Nicholas: I think Nicholas is a great name, and Nick is a nice nn, but it's so expected and popular.

Grahm Amory, Finn Matthew, Tucker John, Landon Jude, Jack Hobart, Lucas Daniel
I rather like Amory for a middle name, actually! One-syllable boys names are extra-hard for me to pair with a middle name too--I love love single-syllable middle names!--but you seem to have a bunch of longer middle name choices, so it seems like you've got a bunch to work with. My brother's middle name is James...Jack James (Definitely not my fav. combo!)...I sort of like Jack Owen

I think it is funny that alot of you are classifying Ashlyn as trendy and made up. I think alot of the other names on the list would be considered more "trendy". Ashlyn is the phonetic spelling of Aislin, a very pretty Irish name. I have a 3 1/2 year old daughter named Ashlyn and I named her from a baby name book, having never met an Ashlyn, or even heard of the name. It was from a book with Irish names. I think it is beautiful and not over used. Just because a name has a y doesn't make it trendy. I feel that Ashlyn looks more feminine than Ashlin. Anyway, to the poster...I love it, don't knock it off your top 10 :)
