So my best friend and I just spent about two hours naming our children. Just to be safe, we chose 3 for each sex. I'm sure you can figure out whose are whose (at least for the girls) but I'm just going to group them all together. What do you think??

Asher James
Tucker John
Tristan Francis
Finnegan Barr (family last name)
Callahan Matthew
Casey Michael

Aeslyn Jane (pronounced like Ace-lynn I guess)
Sylvia Bette (Family name, pronounced like bet)
Evelyn Pearl
Harlow Rae
Zeile Kate (Zeile rhymes with Sigh-Leigh)
Olive Judith


What do you think?? I think our boys names are all relatively similar, our girls are not at all!

Thanks!!

-Dani (and Lisa)

    AND, I of course love thinking of baby names even though that is a VERY far in the future thing for me because I'm still young!

Asher James- Love it, handsome and spunky.
Tucker John- Cute, but I don't like John (just something for my personal taste) it does sound well though.
Tristan Francis- Not really a fan, it sounds rather feminine to me.
Finnegan Barr (family last name)- Love Finnegan, Barr would be fine if it has to do with family though I don't like it.
Callahan Matthew- I don't like the name Callahan, it's a very common last name around where I live. Matthew is wonderful though. It sounds nice as a combo, however.
Casey Michael- Cute, but Michael is such a filler name to me.

Aeslyn Jane (pronounced like Ace-lynn I guess)- I think it's rather pretty, but I think the way Aeslyn is spelled might cause pronunciation problems.
Sylvia Bette (Family name, pronounced like bet)- It's alright, but I seem to think "old lady" when I hear it.
Evelyn Pearl- So pretty.
Harlow Rae- Harlow is pretty, but Rae doesn't fit. It needs something pretty and delicate with it I think.
Zeile Kate (Zeile rhymes with Sigh-Leigh)- I like it, but I still think pronunciation would prove to be a problem.
Olive Judith- Very cute, prefer Olivia but this is nice too.

Asher James ~ I love it! Asher is really cute and different, and James is my favorite middle name for boys
Tucker John ~ not really my style, and all I can think of is the movie John Tucker Must Die! lol
Tristan Francis ~ I really like Tristan, but not Francis. (I do think Francis is cool as a mn, but with 2mns)
Finnegan Barr (family last name) ~ not my style. I like Finley better than Finnegan
Callahan Matthew ~ not my style at all. I'm not a fan of Matthew
Casey Michael ~ I like Casey!

Aeslyn Jane (pronounced like Ace-lynn I guess) ~ Aeslyn is not my style. I like Jane though.
Sylvia Bette (Family name, pronounced like bet) ~ I don't like either, sorry
Evelyn Pearl ~ Evelyn is pretty, but I don't really like Pearl
Harlow Rae ~ cute!
Zeile Kate (Zeile rhymes with Sigh-Leigh) ~ I actually kinda like it, but I would never use it. I don't know if I would like Zeile if it WASN'T paired with Kate though.
Olive Judith ~ Olivia is okay, I prefer Alivia. I don't like Judith.

Hope this helps!

Asher James - Handsome! I love Asher. James feels a bit safe but it flows well.
Tucker John - I strongly dislike Tucker. It rhymes with a certain F word.
Tristan Francis - Nice. Tristan has a very artistic romantic feel.
Finnegan Barr (family last name) - I prefer Finnian or Finley. I like Finnegan in theory but I don't know how practical it is.
Callahan Matthew - Ehh... I am not crazy about Callahan it feels very last namey to me. Matthew is boring.
Casey Michael - I don't mind Casey but I find Michael boring and predictable.


Aeslyn Jane (pronounced like Ace-lynn I guess) - Not my style. I especially dislike this spelling. Jane is nice.
Sylvia Bette (Family name, pronounced like bet) - Sylvia feels eternally 80 to me. I suppose the nickname Sylvie isn't horrible. Bette reminds me of Bette Midler.
Evelyn Pearl - Pretty. Definitely my favorite of the bunch. Evelyn is a strong classic and has great nn potential.
Harlow Rae - Not my style. Too trendy and harsh sounding.
Zeile Kate (Zeile rhymes with Sigh-Leigh) - Zeile is not my style. Trendy and made up.
Olive Judith - I like Olive but I don't care much for Judith. Olive Josephine would be nice.

Sylvia, Evelyn & Olive - Asher, Tristan & Finnegan?
Aeslyn, Harlow & Zeile - Tucker, Callahan & Casey?

I know what you guys mean about Sylvia (that was one of my names, btw!)

My main reason for picking it was because Evelyn would be Evie and Olive would be Livvie, so I thought Sylvie would go best. (Evie, Livvie and Sylvie).

Any other ideas for a girls name to go with Evelyn and Olive? it doesn't have to be a vowel, or have a V (though I would love the v sound, but I know that's difficult)!

Thanks!
