There have been a few names that I have been beginning to love lately and I thought I would run them by the BNG crew to get some opinions. Thanks :)

Girls:
Harmony
Elise
Juliet
Audrey/Aubrey
Caroline
Eden
Moire/Moira (MOY-ruh)
Brighton
(I know it's a boy's name...could it work on a girl?)

Boys:
Cole
Gavin
Graham
Julian
August
Simon

Harmony--not a fan, sorry
Elise---I prefer it spelt Elyse. Its not my favorite---there's something very blah about it to me
Juliet---I like it as a middle name, but not as a first. I like Julia and Julie better
Audrey/Aubrey---I love Audrey! Aubrey is nice as well. I also like Audra and Abra
Caroline--I quite like this one
Eden---middle name only
Moire/Moira (MOY-ruh)---I adore this name! You're probably the only other person I've found that likes it (:
Brighton--not my style

Cole--its okay
Gavin---really not my style
Graham--adorable! I babysit a little boy with this name and I always call him Graham Cracker (:
Julian---I adore this name!
August--I love this one as well, but typically only as a middle name. Julian August is one of my favorite combos
Simon_I love, love, love this one!

Absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE - Elise, Juliet, Audrey, Eden and Moira --I heard it in Peter-Pan (The one with Robin Williams) when I was 10, and fell inlove, same with Maggie. ;)-- & Cole, Julian and Simon.

Not my style, but still cute - Caroline and Harmony & Graham and Gavin.

Not sure - Brighton and August.



Though, I must admit, Julian August is VERY handsome! :)

August Julian would also sound quite nice. Or Augustus Julian...

I like August Julian as well. I'm not sure if I would potentially use either or if they will just stay on the guilty pleasure list. As for Moira/Moire, I heard a lady named Moire the other day and I fell in love with the name! I'm thinking it would name a good middle name.

Audrey Moira
Elise Moira (not sure about this one, maybe Moira Elise?)
Eden Moira
Moira Fleur?

I love Maggie as well, Yas! I hate the full name Margaret but I adore Maggie. Not sure how I feel about it as a stand alone name though...

I love Graham...the name has been in the back of my head for a while but I'm struggling to pair it with a middle name. Any suggestions?

I like
Audrey Moira
Moira Elyse
Eden Moira
Moira Fleur**this one is awesome!


Maggie is so cute! I would definitely use it as a stand alone name. Maggie Grace would make a cute combo!

As for Graham..some middle and first name suggestions:
Graham Alexander
Lucas Graham
Michael Graham
Graham Joshua
Nicholas Graham
Brody Graham
Nolan Graham

I think it makes a better middle name haha!

I think I like Graham better as a middle name as well although I do quite like Graham Joshua!

I'm not a huge fan of Michael or Lucas, but Michael Graham and Lucas Graham both have a wonderful ring to them. :)

Girls:
Harmony - NMS, have had a run in with a Harmony I really did not like
Elise - Love it, elegant, feminine and timeless
Juliet - I agree with Rose, better as a middle name
Audrey/Aubrey - Almost named Addison: Audrey. Don't really like Aubrey though.
Caroline - NMS, kind of boring to me
Eden - I love it...especially with the middle name Elizabeth
Moire/Moira (MOY-ruh)- it's okay
Brighton - don't really like it on a boy or girl


Boys:
Cole - i like it but i find it's sort of overused
Gavin - ADORE IT! As you know that is what our next child will be the baby is a boy
Graham - cutee!
Julian - Also love it.
August - NMS
Simon - kind of outdated but makes for a smart adult name


Maggie is also one of my favourite names

For a girl, I love Juliet, Audrey, Caroline and Eden. For a boy, I love Cole, Julian and August (Graham is my dad's name haha so I can't imagine it on a baby!)

Julian August isn't really my style - but I actually kinda like it!
