I'm naming one of my daughters Grace Isobel, so I guess I'm biased.. but that, Rosalind Faith, Juliet Iris and Lily Johannah are my favourites.

For the boys I LOVE Bennett Samuel, Caleb Jude, Finn Patrick and I adore Levi.. but River is NMS.


I've got Ivy Juliet, Lily Madeline, Hannah Rosalind, Faith Eloise, Ava Elisabeth, Samuel Bennett, Caleb Andrew, James Patrick, Levi Graham and Finn August on my list.

LOVE LOVE LOVE your combos - as usual. <3

Like I said in your topic... I really think we're the same person, Yasmine!

I love Grace Isobel, it's been my number one girls name for a few years... there was a character on one of my shows named Gracie Belle and I just fell in love!

Do you have any other middle names for Bennett? As I was looking over this I realized I can't use Samuel, no matter how much I love it.

On a different note... I love Finn August! So handsome!!

Gorgeous names, I practically like every single one! The only names I don't like are Judith, Graham (probably b/c they are my grandma and dad's names haha) and Tucker.

Juliet Iris: I love the idea of the name Juliet, but I can never actually picture a girl in real life named Juliet. Iris is BEAUTIFUL, very nice pairing.
Maeve Elisa: Maeve isn't my style. It reminds me of Mauve, which seems so old-lady to me. Elisa's very pretty though.
Ava Judith: Love Ava, Judith is a little too old-fashioned to me.
Grace Isobel: Gorgeous! I LOVE Isobel vs. Isabelle...same charm without the trendiness.
Lily Johannah: Lily's one of my faves, Johannah seems like a mouthful to me. I would much prefer Lily Joanna
Rosalind Faith: Love it. Rosalind is so unexpected and classy and has such cute nickname potential! Faith...what's not to love?
Eloise Sylvie: A little bit cutesy for my taste. I like Eloise all right, but it's a little OTT paired with Sylvie in my opinion.

Graham Sebastian: I love love love Graham and I like Sebastian. The flow's nice enough but they don't seem to "go together" to me.
Bennett Samuel: LOVE IT.
Caleb Jude: I don't love Caleb, but I DO love Jude. :)
James Tucker: Two of my faves!
Joel Atticus: Joel's one of those that I can never decide whether I love or hate. Atticus is actually really nice as a MN! It'd be too harsh for a first name for a little kid maybe, but it's really a nice strong middle name.
Finn Patrick: I love this. It has a very like Scotland/Ireland feeling or something. haha whatever it is, it's adorable.
Levi River: This one is just not my style. Both names have a kind of feminine feeling for me...just not my style.

Adorable names!! I especially love Ava, Isobel, Lily, Faith, Iris, Graham, Bennett, Jude and Finn. ;)

Thanks guys!! I get so happy when people like my names, it's kinda lame haha.

As far as Judith goes... Judith is my grandmother and I would love to use her name. My other grandmother is Rita, and I would love to use that but I haven't found any good combos yet.

And for Elisa and Johannah... my two best friends are Lisa and Hannah. Even though I know my sister will be mad if I don't use her name (Lindsay), I like the idea of naming my daughters after my two friends.

Thanks again

My grandmother's name is Judith too, but I'm not really a fan of the name, so I think I might use Jude as a boys name in some way (and I've just realised Caleb Jude is on your list, so you've probably thought of that already haha). Judita could combine Judith and Rita too. And apparently Rita was originally short for Margarita or Margaret too, and it means 'pearl', so you could use that name too. Although Rita is quite pretty I think :)

Tessa- I do LOVE Jude for a boy, and I would definitely use that, so I don't know, maybe I don't want Judith. I guess I could focus on Jude as a boys middle name and something for Rita for a girl. I love the name Pearl... do you think that's too far from the name, since it's only the meaning? I used to want Marguerite, but it just seems like too much of a mouthful.

I guess it's a good think I'm not having kids for a loong time. :)

Haha I know, my mum is always telling me to stop thinking about it cause I won't be having kids for years, but I just have fun finding ways to use other peoples names! And as long as your grandmother understood that you were 'honouring' her I guess (if she's still alive), then i'm sure she'd be thrilled, I love Pearl too, my great grandma's name was Eva Pearl, which I think is just gorgeous ;)

JamieSue- I love the name Tucker, it's been my favorite boys name since I was about eight. I love Tucker James or James Tucker. If I had James Tucker, he'd go by Tucker. The reason I want it James Tucker is because there was a woman on here back when BNG was new who had a son James Tucker and they called him J. Tuck, and I thought it was just the cutest thing.

Tessa- I love Eva Pearl! That's gorgeous! My grandmother named Rita passed away, but I know she hated her name and she told all of her kids and grandkids not to ever name a daughter after her, so I'm sure she wouldn't mind if I used Pearl to honor her.

Thanks everyone for all the advice!

-Dani
