These are the ones I like/love, starred ones are my favorites:


Ana- I like it, but it doesn't seem like a full name to me. So I'd either use Anabelle and shorten it, or use Hana on its own.
Annabel (nn Annie?): Used to love it, but it's growing to be a little bland to me. Very elegant, though, and Annie is cute!
Audrey*: Despite many considering it old, I actually think it's beautiful!
Charlotte*: A favorite- classy and timeless; though I have to say, it might not age as well as some others that are similar (ie. Caterine or Eleanor)
Claire*: I'm starting to really, really love this name! It made it's way onto my list, too!
Eleanor* (nn Nellie?): Not a fan of the nickname, but Eleanor is stunning.
Elena* (nn Leni?): Another favorite. Leni is okay, kinda cute for a little girl. I'm not sure on the pronunciation you use, it's eh-LEH-na or EH-le-na though. Beautiful name!
Eva: I love it. One of the few super shorts names that I like.
Eve*: Same as above, they're basically the same name :wub: beautiful!
Isabel: Undoubtly prefer this or Isobel to the ever-popular Isabella. It's far more classy and "gentle", if that makes sense.
Iris: Guilty pleasure of mine. I'd use it as a middle name!
Juliet: Stunning. I also love Julia&Julianne, which are similar. Literary name, which is a plus in my book!
Kate: Okay, I'm not a fan of the K. Cate, as a nickname to Caterine, is far more classy in my opinion.
Lila: Not my favorite, but it's a sweet name no doubt. Prefer Lilah though, with an H.
Maeve: It's growing on me, but only as a middle name.
Nora: Beautiful, but I prefer it spelled Norah.
Ruby: Eh, not too fond. It's not bad, but I'm not sure wheter it sounds like a nickname-ish kinda think or and old lady name. The sound is pleasantly vibrant, though!
Scarlett: Another guilty pleasure. Beautiful name.
Victoria: Actually, I prefer the Italian version Vittoria, the T makes it look kind of harsh. I think it's Gorgeous.


Adam: I'm starting to grow really, really fond of stronger, more traditional names (such as this or Joseph). It's very handsome!
August: I'd only use it as a middle name.
Eli: I love the sound, but it looks too nickname-ish. Maybe I'd choose Elias and then shorten it.
Gabriel (nn Gabe?): Middle name only, not a fan of Gabe.
Henry*: One of my favorites name. It's just so handsome and beautiful.
Ian: Awesome name. Maybe a tiny bit too short, but it'd go wonderfully with a longer middle name. (Ian August, for example!)
Jack: Love it!
Jude: Probably middle name only. Very elegant!
Leo: Only as a nickname for Leonardo or Leonard.
Nathaniel (nn Nate?): Strong and beautiful name, I used to love it as a middle name only but now I'm loving it!
Owen: This one is growing on me. No doubt a very strong and pleasant name!
Patrick: Middle name only.
Stephen: Same as above.
Wesley*(nn Wes?): One of the few cases where I love the nickname (Wes is just so cute!). Wesley is such a great name!
William* (nn Will?): Ah, the classic. Beautiful, and Will is also a great nickname. I don't know if I'd ever use it, seeing as I "chose" Liam already, but I love it!


Hope this helped! We have similar taste in names (:

I'm going to comment on just the ones I have a really strong like or dislike reaction to...the ones I like are starred!

*Ada- I LOVE this name...I'm a fan of Ava, but it's too popular, I'd never thought of this option, but its going on my list too!
*Calla- This name is already on my list. I like nature names, and the Calla Lily is a beautiful flower! It's one of the few nature names that sounds really classy to me.
*Caroline- I prefer Carolina, but I do like this one- no nn though...I REALLY dislike nn Carrie or Carol
*Charlotte- Another one of my favorites! I always like either REALLY traditional names or REALLY trendy names!
Clara- I really don't like this one...a little too old-timey for my taste even though I love traditional names
*Eleanor- On my list too, but I don't like Nellie at all...wdyt about Ella? Or Elle?
*Ellery (guilty pleasure)- Unusual, but not strange...I like it :wub: My fave name is Everly, which is similar.
Eloise- It makes my really dislike list...sorry...I picture a nerdy little kid getting picked on with this one
*Eva- Love both this and Eve...Eva is another one that gives me the satisfaction of Ava without the overuse
Isabel- Even though it's spelled dif, it's still the overused name of the moment. Please no.
Isla- I think alot of people would mess up pronunciation of this name...I'm not sure about the pn myself?
*Juliet- I adore literary names, and Juliet is incredibly cute and will age well too!
*Kate- I love this name, but really hate Catherine/Katherine...I think Kate is much more elegant, and this is the best spelling.
Maeve- I think this would be another spelling/pn headache for people, and its just not as elegant, pretty, or cute as your other choices.
*Noelle- This is one I will def use as a mn if I have a daughter near Christmas. Very pretty, but even though I really like it I wouldn't use it as a fn.
*Ruby- This is a family name for me. I really like it, but have a hard time pairing it as either a fn or mn....it doesn't seem to go with much, which is frustrating b/c I think it is so beautiful.
*Scarlett- I'm a southern girl, so of course Scarlett has been on my list since I was a little girl.
Selena- This name sounds slippery and creepy imo...I don't know if it makes sense what I'm trying to say, but I don't think it sounds like a nice person...

*August- I really like this one, but only as a mn
*Callum- If it's pn Cay-lum then yes, I love it....maybe sp Kalum/Calum/Calem/Kalem
*Emmett (Too ‘Twilight?’)- Emmett is on my list too, and I'm a huge Twilight fan, but don't associate the two...Emmett isn't really a major player...When I think Twilight I think Isabella/Bella/Edward/Cullen/Jacob/maybe Alice
*Jack- I prefer Jackson with the nn Jack, which is on my list
*Jude- Also on my list!
Leo- This is your only boy name that I REALLY dislike. Too Leo DiCaprio and 90's for my taste.
*Nathaniel (nn Nate?)- This is nice, but I prefer Nathan w/no nn.
*Owen- Love it.
*Wesley (nn Wes?)- This is my hubby's name, and he absolutely loves it! It's perfect for a little boy and all the way too adulthood. He uses the nn Wes. His full name is Jay Wesley, although if I'd been naming him I'd have used Wesley James.
*William (nn Will?)- My dad, his dad, and his dad's dad's name along with several uncles. I'm using it, and I will be using the nn Will. With all the Williams we've never had a Will in my family...they've all went by Bill or Billy or their mn's!

Ada: Super cute.
Ana: I prefer Anna.
Annabel (nn Annie?): Annabel is so cute!! Annie's adorable too, but I love Annabel all on its own.
Audrey: I'm not crazy about Au- names.
Bridget: I think Bridget's really nice. I once knew a serious tomboy named Bridget, so that's how I associate it...but it's adorable anyways.
Calla: I've always thought this was a beautiful name but rarely see it. Good choice!
Caroline: LOVE LOVE LOVE.
Charlotte: Really pretty. Seems southern and sweet. :wub:
Claire: So simple and pretty.
Clara: Logically, I love this name...but I must have some bad association because I just can't bring myself to actually like it!
Eleanor (nn Nellie?): A little old-fashioned for my taste.
Elena (nn Leni?): Cute...pronounced Ee-Lane-uh or Eh-len-uh?
Ellery (guilty pleasure): Not my favorite, but we all have those guilty pleasures that nobody loves but us. :lol:
Eloise: So cutesy...I like it on a little girl but wonder how it'd age.
Eva: Really pretty.
Eve: I almost prefer this to Eva, actually. It's a little more uncommon.
Felicity: Seems a little circa-1997 to me.
Isabel: SO TRENDY! But I love the name...I wish everyone else and their sister didn't love it so much. :wub:
Isla: LOVE LOVE LOVE. Breezy and unexpected.
Iris: I love this too! It's so unique and is equally gorgeous and strong.
Juliet: What's not to love?
Kate: Adorable by itself.
Lila: I prefer Lyla, but either way it's my FAVORITE NAME!
Laila: Layla is easier to read, IMO. It's a beautiful name, but I so prefer Lyla/Lila.
Maeve: Not my style.
Marielle: Not my style.
Noelle: I like it better Noel.
Nora: This name grows on me every time I hear it.
Ruby: So cute. :(
Scarlett: I LOVE Scarlet. The extra t always seems unnecessary to me, but it's a fabulous name.
Selena: Not my style.
Victoria: A little popular for my taste.

Adam: Seems a little common, but it's a nice enough name.
August: I love this name. :( It's a huge guilty pleasure for me!!
Callum: Not my favorite.
Eli: I Prefer Elliot or Levi.
Emmett (Too ‘Twilight?’)
: So cute. I don't even associate it with Twilight at all. :)
Gabriel (nn Gabe?)I really love Gabriel! Gabe isn't my favorite nickname...but I think it's one of those that comes with the name.
Henry: I don't feel strongly either way about Henry.
Ian: A nice name, but it seems popular to me...at least for kids my age. I know a TON of Ians.
Jack: My brother's name is Jack! It's a cute name, and it ages so well. It's no-nonsense; I like it.
Jude: One of my ALL TIME FAVORITES.
Leo: So cute! A little nicknamey...but I think that's okay in this instance, because I'm not crazy about Leonardo.
Miles: Just not my favorite. I don't know why, but it never really has been.
Nathaniel (nn Nate?): I prefer Nathan nn Nate, or Nathaniel nn Nat. Overall I just like Nathan a bit better.
Owen: LOVE LOVE LOVE.
Patrick: What's not to like?
Stephen: Pronounced Stef-en or Stev-en? I see it and think the second, but it's nice either way.
Wesley (nn Wes?): A guilty pleasure for me...I think Princess Bride immediately, but it's such a great name!! I also like Westin, and Wes is a nice nickname.
William (nn Will?): Classic, but not so popular as other classic names. I love it.

Great names!! We have very similar tastes. :D

Ada - I like it. It has a soft antique charm but still feels current.
Ana - I prefer Anna. I pronounce Ana as awn-na rather than Anne-na. I like it but prefer it as an nn for something longer.
Annabel (nn Annie?) - Love Annabel. It has a very sweet, girl next door feel for me. Annie makes for a great nn.
Audrey - I like it but it doesn't wow me. I prefer the quirkier Audra.
Bridget - I like Bridget. It is rather refreshing.
Calla - Pretty. One of my favorite floral names.
Caroline - I am indifferent with Caroline. I like it but it isn't something I would ever consider myself. I think it is one of those that I like for other peoples kids.
Charlotte - Beautiful. I think I prefer Scarlett myself but it is a gorgeous name nonetheless.
Claire - Pretty. I prefer Clara. I do like Claire's simplicity though.
Clara - Very pretty. I love this with Annabel & Charlotte.
Eleanor (nn Nellie?) - I am not a big Eleanor fan. Something about the hard nor sound puts me off. I love Nellie as an nn for Penelope.
Elena (nn Leni?) - Very pretty. This is definitely my preferred spelling of the name and Len/Leni make for cute nn's. This has an exotic appeal for me.
Ellery (guilty pleasure) - Not a fan. I think of Celery.
Eloise - Cute. I also like Louisa.
Eva - I have a bad association with this one but that aside it is a beautiful name and I much prefer it to Ava.
Eve - LOVE it! I love it's simplicity and nature feel.
Felicity - I think of the show. Not necessarily a favorite of mine but I understand the names appeal.
Isabel - Beautiful. The names popularity deters me though.
Isla - Very pretty. I love the softness.
Iris - Ehh... Not a favorite of mine. I think of eyes.
Juliet - Love it. I think I prefer it as a mn though.
Kate - Cute. I prefer Cate.
Lila - Pretty. I prefer it as an nn for Delilah.
Laila - I prefer Lila but I like this too.
Maeve - It has a harsh sound, not really my thing.
Marielle - I don't care for this either. I do like Mirabel though.
Noelle - Pretty. I think it is overused in the middle spot.
Nora - Not a favorite but I do prefer it to Eleanor.
Ruby - Cute though Scarlett is my favorite 'red' name.
Scarlett - Beautiful. This is a favorite of mine though it's lack of usable nn's deters me some.
Selena - Not my style.
Victoria - Ehhh.. A little on the boring side. I am also not a fan of any of the name nn's ie. Tori/Vicky etc.

Adam - It is decent enough just not my style. It feels a bit dated and bland imo.
August - LOVE! Very handsome. It has a strong masculine feel but also has a soft 'naturey' charm.
Callum - I like this. It has a romantic charm imo.
Eli - I like it but prefer it as an nn for Elias or Elliot.
Emmett (Too 'Twilight?') - I prefer Emery though I like this too. The Twilight connection is very strong.
Gabriel (nn Gabe?) - I love Gabriel but I really dislike Gabe which has a harsh, blunt sound imo.
Henry - I love this one too. Strong and classic.
Ian - I like it though it isn't something I would consider myself.
Jack - Handsome. I appreciate the simplicity.
Jude - LOVE! I also love this as an nn for Julian.
Leo - Just okay for me.
Miles - Very handsome. I really like this one.
Nathaniel (nn Nate?) - Indifferent.
Owen - Not my style. Trendy.
Patrick - Not my style at all. I don't like the trick part. Dated.
Stephen - Dated. Not my style.
Wesley (nn Wes?) - Not my style. Too western for my tastes.
William (nn Will?) - Love it. Strong and classic. I love the nn Will.
