I remember reading your list in Andy's topic and thinking that it was the most similar to mine, so I'm very excited to give you opinions.

1. Julian Matthias - I love both names even though neither are on my list. They aren't on there because I already have Juliana and Matthew which are too similar. I still love your combo, though. The names go well together.

2. Elodie Francesca - I'm not a fan of Elodie - though that may just be because I know a Melanie and a Melody and it feels incomplete compared to those. Francesca is also not one that I would choose. Overall, not bad names, just not my type.

3. August Leander - Oh, I love this one. The only fault I can find is that I'm not sold on Augie, and it seems like a likely nn. Leander is interesting and very nice, I'm glad to see it. The flow of this is excellent. :P

4. Eve Seraphina - LOVE both of the names - they are both on my list as Seraphina Dawn (I just realized that is the exact opposite of yours!) and Calista Eve. I really love your combo, I just prefer Seraphina as a first and Eve as a middle. Evie (or whatever spelling), is an awesome nn.

5. River Joseph - Hmm... River. Honestly, I hate it. Especially on a boy. It just doesn't seem that masculine, plus I get really bleh mental images when I see/hear it. It anything, I would prefer it on a girl like in Firefly (the TV show). Joseph is nice, and it does balance out River's unusualness.

6. Ivy Gwendolyn - LOVE it. Basically the same deal as Eve Seraphina. I have them both on my list as Gwendolyn Paige and Arabella Ivy. Same reasons as above - I like Gwendolyn better as a first name. Your combo is still very nice, though.

7. Elias Quinlan - Not a fan of either name. I find Elias to be a bit weak on a boy, like Elijah. Quinlan was the last name of a really aweful teacher I had in high school so I can't see it on a child. I would prefer Elias Quinn.

8. Violet Caterina - Weird. I have exact opposite combo on my list! Caterina Violet. Spooky. Like Seraphina and Gwendolyn, I prefer Caterina as a first name. I'm a fan of longer names with great nn's and Caterina has some really nice ones. Violet Caterina is still very nice though.

9. Dante Paris - I don't like Paris on a boy, even though I know he was a character in Romeo and Juliet. Mostly because I also think of Paris Hilton - little dog, lots of pink, stupid catchphrase. Dante is interesting, although my mind automatically goes to Dante's Inferno and that basketball player. Those aren't really bad things at all, but still, I wouldn't ever use it.

10. Dahlia Evangeline - Double weird. I have this exact combo on my list. Really, I do. At first, I had it as Dahlia Evangeline. Then someone told me it was too much of a mouthful so I tried Dahlia Everleigh, then I decided that it was too trendy and switched back to Dahlia Evangeline. After all, how often is the middle name going to be said out loud? Not much. So, yeah, I love this combo.

11. Oliver Maximus - I love Oliver and the nn Ollie. Maximus... not so much. It makes me think of Transformer for some reason. I would change it to Oliver Maxwell, which I think has much better flow too, since the syllables are varied.

12. Mila Anastasia - I don't really care for either name. Anastasia is a bit too frilly for me and I just don't like Mila's sound. It does vaguely remind me of a combo I used to have on my list: Lila Persephone. I had that on there for a while before I switched it to Lila Mackenzie because I felt the Persephone was too frilly for the super-feminine Lila. I feel like Mackenzie balances that out, though I'm sure it is too trendy for you.

13. Alexander 'Sasha' Caius - I love the names Alec and Xander, and I really can't explain why, but I've always disliked Alexander. It isn't bad or anything. I'm just not a fan. Sasha is an okay nn, but I prefer the other two. Caius is interesting (wasn't that a character in Twilight?) but I prefer Caspian or Marcus which have a similar feel to me. Wait, wasn't Marcus a character in Twilight, too? I didn't realize that until I wrote it. Oh, well.

14. Annabel Juliet - I really don't like names that start with Ann/Anna. If you like it, then it is fine and good. Juliet is gorgeous, I have it on my list as a middle name too. Beautiful.

15. Nikolai Sebastian - I love Niko and Nick as nicknames, and i definitely like Nikolai. Sebastian reminds me of The Little Mermaid too much. Every time I see it, that song "Under the Sea" runs through my minds and it get really annoying. But anyway, it isn't a bad name. I just find the stuff it brings to my mind annoying.

16. Cecily Allegra - Two more names that I really love. I have Allegra Katherine on my list, as well as Cecelia Phoebe (Cecelia is close enough to Cecily). As far as your combo, I would suggest switching it to Allegra Cecily. Notice that I didn't suggest flipping the other ones (Eve Seraphina, Ivy Gwendolyn, and Violet Catarina)? That's because I liked your combo's flows about the same as I liked mine. This one's flow, however, would definitely be improved my the flip, imao. I still love both names, though.

17. Gabriel Asher - Again, love it. Both are really nice names. I have them on my list, though both as middle names (and Ashton instead of Asher). Gabriel is very nice as a first name, though. I have it as a mn only because I am hesitant about using it as a first name with the 'gay-' sound at the front. I do love the nn Gabe. Your combo is still very nice, of course.

18. Amelie Elizabeth - I love Amelie/Amelia. I don't think the flow is quite right on this one, though. Maybe the end of Amelie clashes with the beginning of Elizabeth. Also, I really prefer Eliza to Elizabeth. Eliza sounds much fresher and nicer to me, but if you love Elizabeth, then that is all that matters.

19. Adrian Phoenix - Not a fan of either name, but they do go together well. Definitely well matched.

20. Emmeline Thora - I prefer Evangeline to Emmeline, but Emmeline is still quite nice. Thora is probably the girls name I like the least so far on your list. Seems very masculine / reminds me of thorns. On the other hand, good flow.

21. Lucian Ezra - I love Ezra, really can't explain why either. Lucian sounds evil to me after reading/watching Harry Potter. I would prefer Luke/Luc/Lucas/Luca. Though the last one wouldn't go with Ezra.

22. Athena Rosalie - I like both, but would slightly prefer them switched around. Both are nice names, though.

23. William Xander - REALLY LOVE both of these names. Absolutely love them. Love the combination, too. Good match with the styles, and very good flow.

24. Scarlett Penelope - LOVE both of them again. Love the nn Scar, which is kinda weird but I enjoyed 17 Again so I guess that explains it. Penelope has very good connotations for me. Flow is lovely.

25. Felix Ambrose - The flow on this is fine, but I think I hate both of the names, sorry.

I really like Felix Ambrose (Ambrose is a great mn and flows nicely with Felix) & I adore Lucian Ezra. But the flow on River Joseph seems a bit off to me.

All your other names sound great.

Thanks for your thoughts. Many of the combos on this list are not my usual combos ie. I love Julian August but if I were to have 25 kids (which I obviously wont) I would want to use both Julian & August as first names. I suppose this list could use a bit more tweaking. I see what you both are saying about River Joseph. I think the v in River and the ph sound in Joseph make it difficult to say. River is definitley a top boys name contender for me and is one of the few names that my boyfriend and I both like. Any middle name suggestions for River?

River Matthias
River Jude
River Elias
River Lucian
River William

???

Seems to be a hard one to pair.

1. Julian Matthias- Love this so much! Julian is such a handsome name, and I love Matthias.
2. Elodie Francesca- So pretty! Iím beginning to really like Elodie, and I think Francesca matches it very well.
3. August Leander- August is another one I never really liked, or at least never thought about, but it is really handsome. Leander is such a great name too! I love that and Lysander.
4. Eve Seraphina- Iíve never been big on either name, but the flow is great and it is a really beautiful combo.
5. River Joseph- I love River so, so, so much! Joseph is a great pairing with it, gives the more nature-y name a good, classic name to anchor it. I do prefer River Matthias, River Jude (that was River Phoenixís name, though) or River Elias
6. Ivy Gwendolyn- Same as Eve Seraphina.
7. Elias Quinlan- I love Quinlan, Elias is just alright for me. The flow is good and the pairing is interesting, but overall a good one.
8. Violet Caterina- I love, love, love Caterina! Violetís cute.
9. Dante Paris- Not my favorite, but for mainly personal reasons.
10. Dahlia Evangeline- So gorgeous! I love Dahlia!
11. Oliver Maximus- Neither names are my style, but thereís a good flow.
12. Mila Anastasia- Iím not a fan of the repetitive ďAĒ sounds. Anastasia is beautiful.
13. Alexander 'Sasha' Caius- I love Sasha as a nickname for Alexander! Caius isnít my style.
14. Annabel Juliet- So pretty!! I love both of these names so much and theyíre gorgeous together!
15. Nikolai Sebastian- Sebastian is one of my favorites. Nikolai is just alright.
16. Cecily Allegra- I love Allegra more than Cecily, but I like the flow of it this way much better.
17. Gabriel Asher- I prefer Asher, but this way works.
18. Amelie Elizabeth- Both names are pretty, Iím not sure about the flow.
19. Adrian Phoenix- I like Adrian, Phoenix isnít my style.
20. Emmeline Thora- Love! Thora isnít a name you hear much, and it balances the classic beauty of Emmeline.
21. Lucian Ezra- neither name is my favorite.
22. Athena Rosalie- I prefer Rosalie to Athena.
23. William Xander- This oneís really nice.
24. Scarlett Penelope- So cute! I love Penelope, itís so spunky! Scarlettís great.

1. Julian Matthias - I don't like Julian on a boy; I always think of Juliana.
2. Elodie Francesca - Not a fan of either Elodie or Francesca.

4. Eve Seraphina - Doesn't flow very well.
5. River Joseph - for a boy? River on a girl is ok but on a boy it's just ridiculous.

8. Violet Caterina - Meh. It's ok.

11. Oliver Maximus - YUCK!
12. Mila Anastasia - I don't like Mila (too much like Miley) but I love Anastasia.

16. Cecily Allegra - um... it's OK I guess.
17. Gabriel Asher - NO! Both names are horrible.

25. Felix Ambrose - Meh.


That was very negative. Obviously we have VERY differnt taste in names. For the record August, River & Dante are all boys names. In my opinion none of the above 3 stated names are even a tiny bit feminine. I think they would all sound 'ridiculous' on a girl.
