Girls:
Adysen Rylie (nn Ady)- I would personally leave the spelling unaltered -Adison or Addison- but I like the name a lot! Ady makes for a cute nickname!
Afton Claire- it's the first time I've hear of Afton :) It's not my style at all, but I do love Claire.
Aspen Piper- For my taste, I would switch it. Piper is really nice.
Bella Grace- Grace is my favourite name ever. Bella is good, but as a nickname IMO.
Brynley Giselle (nn Bryn)- Eh, not too fond. Giselle is a great nickname, but Brynley is not my style. Bryn is adorable though!
Kealey Jo- Not my favourite, because I don't think it would age well. The flow is really good though!
Lila Mae- I love this! Simple and sweet :)
Soriah Jade- Soriah is different, in a good way, but it's not my style. Maybe Sarai or just sarah.
Zooey Katherine- I love this! Maybe just Zoey or Zoe, but the combo is gorgeous!

Boys:
Aidan Dexter: Aidan is a little popular, but nice. I'm partial to it because it's my name backwards :) Dexter is so funky! I love it.
Alex Aaron- Great flow, but I wouldn't use Alex on its own. Alexander is super handsome though.
Kyler Dean: Kyl- names seem a little dated to me. The combo flows, but I'm not too fond of the names.
Kylon Paul- I love Paul!
Milen Robert- I would prefer Miles, but overall it's a very strong combo.
Rylan Scott- Scott Rylan would be my pick. I adore Scott.
Saer Michael- Don't care for either, I'm sorry.
Tristan Charles- Flows great. Very handsome!


My faves are:

Lila Mae & Zooey Katherine for girls.


Alex Aaron & Tristan Charles for boys.

Thanks Nadia :)

Milen Robert has sentimental meaning to me... When I was growing up I didn't have a lot of friends, but my elderly neighbor was my best friend despite the 65 year age difference... His name was Robert Milen, so I just switched it to make it a little more modern :)

And I love Zooey Katherine too, but I kind of stole the name from Zooey Deschanel (the girl off of the movie Elf) so I like it spelled Zooey vs. Zoey/Zoe

Thanks again for your feedback =)

What a sweet meaning/story behind the name! I love names that have memories attached to them.

And I love Zooey Deschanel-- she's one of my favourite actors!

Girls:
Adysen Rylie (nn Ady)- I prefer Addison or Adison, but the spelling Adysen doesn't bother me as much as usual "different" spellings! I LOVE the nickname Ady!!
Afton Claire- I actually grew up with a girl named Afton, so I have heard of it. It's different, but easy to pronounce and not weird sounding. Love it with the middle name Claire!
Aspen Piper- I absolutely love both Aspen and Piper.
Bella Grace- Very pretty.
Brynley Giselle (nn Bryn)- I love Bryn and Giselle, I'm not sure how I feel about Brynley, but I think I like it.
Kealey Jo- I prefer Keely/Keeley, but I do really like this combination.
Lila Mae- So cute! Love it.
Soriah Jade- I can't decide about Soriah. I'm not a huge fan of Jade, but that's just because of a personal association with the name. I do like the flow though.
Zooey Katherine- I agree with Nadia and Ryan about the spelling, but it's not like people are going to look at the name and not know what it says. And it sounds beautiful with Katherine.

Boys:
Aidan Dexter- So cute! Using Dexter with such a popular name makes it different and cool.
Alex Aaron- Neither is my favorite name, but they're both so strong and handsome that I like it.
Kyler Dean- I can't decide about this one. But again, I think I like it.
Kylon Paul- I love Paul, not sure about Kylon.
Milen Robert- I really like this, especially knowing it has sentimental meaning to you!
Rylan Scott- I love Rylan and Scott!!
Saer Michael- If it's pronounced Say-er, then I like it. It kind of reminds me of Soren, not sure why though.
Tristan Charles- Love, love, love, love, LOVE!! Perfect!!

Favorites: Lila Mae, Aspen Piper, Afton Claire
Tristan Charles, Rylan Scott, Milen Robert

I like:
Bella Grace & Lila Mae. The others are not my style though I do like Claire & Katherine. Tristan Charles is the only boys name on your list that I care for but it is a bit heavy on the S. Maybe Tristan Robert? Tristan Michael? I also like Dexter (my cats name) but Aidan is not my thing, too trendy for my liking.

Ps. My name is Tiffany too and my last name also starts with a P :)

Girls:
Adysen Rylie (nn Ady)- I'm not a giant fan of Addison on girls, but when it is used I prefer the spelling "Addison". (I've got a little girl cousin named Addison) "Adysen" feels kind of... over zealous? Especially paired with "Rylie". The two "y"s seem to be fighting eachother for your eyes attention. I much prefer the traditional Irish spelling of Reilly. I think Addison Reilly would be lovely.
Afton Claire- I was under the impression that Afton was a boys name? Maybe I'm wrong? Hmm.. not really my style either way. Claire is nice though. Kind of classic.
Aspen Piper- I LOVE both of these. I'm not sure if it's just the way I speak... but it feels almost like the "p" sound in Aspen clashes with the "p" sound in Piper? I think it's just the way I talk. But still, super cute!
Bella Grace- Really, really nms. I have this burning hatred for Twilight (I know I'm going to get shot down for that), so Bella is of course associated mentally with Twilight for me. Even before Twilight, Bella (and all names that contain it) always felt like... a dogs name to me. I'm sorry. Grace is nice, but very much so a filler middle name.
Brynley Giselle (nn Bryn)- I'd prefer "Brinley". Something about the double "y"s makes the name seem much more... harsh? Visually, that is. "Brinley" looks much softer, more feminine. I love Giselle.
Kealey Jo- I know a really awesome girl with the last name "Keeley". I've never heard it as a first name, but I like it. Kealey looks nice. Not a huge fan of Jo.
Lila Mae- I like Lila! Is this "lee-luh" or "lie-luh"? I really like Lilah, if that's the prn you were going for. Lila is nice as well. I feel like Mae is the same as Jo... nms.
Soriah Jade- Soriah is nice. It does, however, make me think of psoriasis. So that's something to think about. It's nice though. Jade isn't my style, but it is pretty. I think of the gemstone names I like Jade the best.
Zooey Katherine- I'm not a huge fan of Zoe/Zoey/Zooey in general, but I do strongly prefer the spelling Zooey. I love Katherine! I really think Katherine looks so strong with the "K"! Zooey Katherine is totally beautiful together.

Boys:
Aidan Dexter- I like this. While all the Aiden/Caden/Jaden/_den names are getting sooo popular, I have always loved Aiden. Regardless of it's super popularity. It's a really nice Irish name. Dexter is cute. I picture a quirky-cute little boy with glasses when I see this name. :)
Alex Aaron- While I like Alexander, I feel like Alex Aaron is just too many "a"s in one name. Aaron isn't really my style.
Kyler Dean- I'm totally in love with the name Kyler. I wouldn't ever use the name Dean, but paired with Kyler it does look nice.
Kylon Paul- Not a huge fan of Kylon. It almost feels made up to me. I like Paul though. It's a classic, strong name.
Milen Robert- Milen feels very feminine to me. But I think after hearing the background for the name it would be a very nice name for a little boy.
Rylan Scott- I like this one.
Saer Michael- "Sayer"? Nms, but not that bad.
Tristan Charles- Tristan is really nms. Charles is okay.


I hope I wasn't like super offensive. ;) Most of these are pretty good.

Hi Tiffany! I promise just to give an opinion...not be harsh! But thankfully, no one that gets on here regularly is ever mean about names!

Adysen Rylie (nn Ady) I used to like this name for a girl, or Addison, but then I started disliking it after a tv show character had the name.
Afton Claire I like this name, but always thought of it as a boy name
Aspen Piper love, love, love this name...It circulates around to my favorites list pretty often
Bella Grace I love this combination...but I tend to shy away from Bella because it is so popular right now
Brynley Giselle (nn Bryn) this is beautiful!
Kealey Jo i like this one too
Lila Mae Lila is one of my all time favorites
Soriah Jade this is cute, and I love Jade
Zooey Katherine I like this one, but I prefer the spelling Zoe

Boys:
Aidan Dexter I love Aidan, it is one of my top names, sounds cute with Dexter
Alex Aaron I also love Alex, but not really crazy about the AA combo
Kyler Dean great name, Kyle is so popular, but this is a nice variation
Kylon Paul I don't like Kylon as much, but Paul is a great mn
Milen Robert not too fond of this name personally
Rylan Scott I love this, so cute!
Saer Michael I'm not sure how you would pronounce this name, but I like it! One of my boy names is Seir...similar, but I kinda think i made it up
Tristan Charles I love this! Tristan is such a great name, and I love the way that Charles feels with it as well! Tristan Charles...such a great name! I might just steal it from you!!!

Girls:
Adysen Rylie (nn Ady)- I'm not a huge fan of either of these names, but this is a cute combo, and I love the nn Ady
Afton Claire- There's an Afton Mtn near where I live, and that's all I can think of when I hear this :unsure:. There's also a song by the bluegrass band Nickel Creek called Sweet Afton, so that's a plus... But I'm not really crazy about it for a girl, it just sounds kinda masculine to me. I do like Claire though.
Aspen Piper- Don't really like Aspen, but Piper is adorable.
Bella Grace- So pretty!
Brynley Giselle (nn Bryn)- Cute. Not crazy about Brynley, but I love Bryn.
Kealey Jo- I prefer the sp Keely. I think it would be adorable if her name was Keely (or Kealey) Josephine, and she went by Kealey Jo.
Lila Mae- Adorable!
Soriah Jade- Soriah reminds me of psoriasis, sorry. I love Jade. Sarah Jade or Sahara Jade might be nice alternatives...
Zooey Katherine- Adorable! Zoe is cute and I absolutely LOVE Katherine, especially spelled this way.

Boys:
Aidan Dexter- Great combo. I like how you balance the popular Aiden with the more unusual Dexter.
Alex Aaron- Also cute.
Kyler Dean- NMS
Kylon Paul- NMS
Milen Robert- Not crazy about Milen. Robert is okay
Rylan Scott- I prefer Ryan or Roland.
Saer Michael- Oh, this one looks neat! How do you prn Saer?
Tristan Charles- Very nice. I like this one a lot!
