Everyone seemed to be posting their top tens (or more), so I decided to try it. All of my names change a lot, but there are way more girl names that I like than boy names so it is easy for me to get down to ten for boys, but I just can't do it for girls. I like the last 7 or so equally. None of these names are made up, and all have legitimate spellings.

{G}
1. Eliza Jenette
2. Jocelyn Caoimhe (Caoimhe is prn. Kee-va or Kwee-va. I prefer the first way)
3. Cordelia Mireille (prn. Mee-ray)
4. Gwendolyn Paige
5. Seraphina Dawn
6. Delilah Carys (prn. Kah-riss)
7. Veronica Soleil (prn. So-lay)
8. Allegra Katherine/Kate*
9. Calista Eve
10. Amelia Sarai (prn. Sah-rye)**
11. Mischa Jane
12. Cassia Piper (prn. Kass-ee-uh or Kash-uh, I like the first one)
13. Rebekah Siobhan (prn. She-vawn)
14. Fiona Vivianne
15. Acacia Phoebe (prn. Ah-kay-shah or Ah-kay-see-uh, I like the second one) TYPO, I put Pheobe but mean't Phoebe... I always mess that one up, SORRY!

*I've had this name on my list for a long time, but I can't decide between Kate and Katherine.
**Amelia is new on my list, mostly because I love the nn Mia. I want a fairly uncommon middle name, but so far I keep flip-flopping.


{B}
1. William Alec
2. Zachary Dylan
3. Benjamin Dexter
4. Matthew Leon
5. Anthony Jensen
6. Joshua Maxwell
7. Gabriel Rhys
8. Christopher August
9. Dominic Spencer
10. Samuel Oliver

These are perfect:
Gwendolyn Paige
Delilah Carys
Allegra Katherine
Calista Eve
Mischa Jane

William Alec - I don't love Alec but it works here.
Gabriel Rhys
Samuel Oliver

I love but not liking the combo:
Eliza - Jenette feels bland and dated here. Suggestions: Eliza Josephine, Eliza Juliet, Eliza Jane
Seraphina - Dawn is really 70's dated to me. It feels hard and blunt. Suggestions: Seraphina Lily, Seraphina Ivy
Amelia - Sarai feels clunky. Suggestions: Amelia Scarlett, Amelia Seraphine
Cassia (kass-ee-uh) - Piper pulls the name trendy imo. Suggestions: Cassia Jane, Cassia Eve

1. Eliza Jenette- Quite like Eliza (love just Liza too), not a fan of Jenette, i think it sounds dated too
2. Jocelyn Caoimhe (Caoimhe is prn. Kee-va or Kwee-va. I prefer the first way)- Not a huge fan of Jocelyn cause I immediately think of that woman who had so much plastic surgery she looked like a cat haha but I like Caoimhe prn. like Kee-va, though noone would ever pronounce it like that.
3. Cordelia Mireille (prn. Mee-ray)- This is really pretty!
4. Gwendolyn Paige- Don't mind
5. Seraphina Dawn- Not a fan of Dawn, and I don't mind Seraphina, seems a little over the top to me though
6. Delilah Carys (prn. Kah-riss)- Very pretty
7. Veronica Soleil (prn. So-lay)- Like this too
8. Allegra Kate- I think I prefer Kate, but only just, gorgeous name
9. Calista Eve- I've said it before, but I love this one
10. Amelia Sarai (prn. Sah-rye)- Pretty
11. Mischa Jane- Quite like
12. Cassia Piper (prn. Kass-ee-uh or Kash-uh, I like the first one)- I definitely prefer the first pronunciation, really cute
13. Rebekah Siobhan (prn. She-vawn)- Not a fan of Rebekah, especially spelt this way, but I don't mind Siobhan
14. Fiona Vivianne- Ok
15. Acacia Pheobe (prn. Ah-kay-shah or Ah-kay-see-uh, I like the second one)- I think I prefer the first spelling, its really nice, prefer Phoebe spelt this way though

Seraphina - Dawn is really 70's dated to me. It feels hard and blunt. Suggestions: Seraphina Lily, Seraphina Ivy
Amelia - Sarai feels clunky. Suggestions: Amelia Scarlett, Amelia Seraphine
Cassia (kass-ee-uh) - Piper pulls the name trendy imo. Suggestions: Cassia Jane, Cassia Eve


-Jenette - I can see why it feels dated, but I don't think it is bland. I don't think I've seen anyone else use it and I think it complements Eliza. I do want to keep Eliza's middle name to two syllables or less, and I think Eliza Josephine and Eliza Juliet are too long. Eliza Jane is fine, but I love Mischa Jane and I can't use Jane on two of them, it would just feel weird.
-Seraphina - Dawn certainly is dated, no question. Way more than Jenette. I still think it is pretty, though, and it isn't even in the top 1000 anymore. I like it as a middle name. Lily... I think it is way too popular for me. I see it everywhere, and I find it boring. Seraphina Ivy is nice, though. Lately I've been thinking of using Seraphina as a middle name (Seraphine) instead. I may just do that...
-Amelia - I think Scarlett sounds trendy, though pretty. Amelia Seraphine is too long. I think I will still with Amelia Sarai for now, though Amelia is so new on my list that it is bound to change.
-Cassia - This is a new find for me, and I'm loving it. I always liked Cassandra, but always hated Sandra. I don't think Piper is that trendy... I was just looking for something moderately more popular and easy to say since Cassia is one of the more confusing first names on my list. What about Cassia Fleur, Cassia Lorraine, Cassia Wren, Cassia Felicity? Hmmm... I don't like any of those as much as Cassia Piper... Cassia Jane sounds good of course, but like I said before, I can't put Jane with all my names. I had Cordelia Jane for a while, but when I resurrected Mischa I put it back as Mischa Jane. I don't think Eve flows with Cassia because they both have the 'ee' sound.


1. Eliza Jenette - Love this. It has a sort of 'old' feel to it, but Eliza is coming back in fashion!
10. Amelia Sarai (prn. Sah-rye)** - Really like Amelia (Prefer it as a mn, whilst Amelie as a fn) and love Sarai.. not sure about them together though.

11. Mischa Jane - Mischa will always make me think of OC.. but it's cute! What do you think of Mila?
12. Cassia Piper (prn. Kass-ee-uh or Kash-uh, I like the first one) - Love both names, not sure on together. It's cute and quirky though! What diu think of Stacia?
15. Acacia Pheobe (prn. Ah-kay-shah or Ah-kay-see-uh, I like the second one) - Hmm. prefer Phoebe spelled this way and though I like Acacia, i'm not sure about them together..

8. Christopher August - Hmm. It's cute, but there's something I don't like and I can't place my finger on it...


I certainly hope Eliza doesn't come back into fashion, I want it as a well-kept secret weapon please.
I love Amelie, and it was on my list before Amelia. Then I met a girl in my dorm who went by Amelia and Mia and I remembered how much I love the name. Yes, Sarai does feel a bit weird in the middle, but I've yet to find a better (unusual) fit. Amelia is soooo common that I want something different.
I've never seen the O.C. so I have no association problems. Mila, on the other hand, reminds me of my best friend's cat Milo. Mila and Milo just sound more like great pet names to me, like Marley.
Stacia - I really don't like Stacey so I'm going to say no to Stacia. Never heard it before, though.
TYPO alert! I always spell Phoebe the way I sound it out: fee-bee. Blah. Maybe something easier for Acacia? Like Acacia Daphne (not sure if that flows), Acacia Celeste (too many c's?), Acacia Rochelle (too blah?), Acacia Eden (too literal?).

I think the problem with Christopher August is that there is so much 's' sound... I've been considering changing it to Christopher Nolan, but I really like August more than Nolan.

{G}
2. Jocelyn Caoimhe (Caoimhe is prn. Kee-va or Kwee-va. I prefer the first way)- Not a huge fan of Jocelyn cause I immediately think of that woman who had so much plastic surgery she looked like a cat haha but I like Caoimhe prn. like Kee-va, though noone would ever pronounce it like that.
5. Seraphina Dawn- Not a fan of Dawn, and I don't mind Seraphina, seems a little over the top to me though
13. Rebekah Siobhan (prn. She-vawn)- Not a fan of Rebekah, especially spelt this way, but I don't mind Siobhan
15. Acacia Pheobe (prn. Ah-kay-shah or Ah-kay-see-uh, I like the second one)- I think I prefer the first spelling, its really nice, prefer Phoebe spelt this way though

I can't think of anyone named Jocelyn in real life, but I don't really watch the news much or read tabloids so that isn't a surprise. Yeah, Caoimhe definitely won't be pronounce right, but since it is just a middle name I don't think it is a big problem. I love the name enough that it doesn't matter to me.
I am beginning to feel Seraphina is over the top, too. I am just so in love with the meaning.
I like Rebekah spelled that way because I have a friend named Jessyka (with a little sister named Rebekah), and I've gotten so used to those spelings that Jessica and Rebecca look weird to me. Plus, I love Beka as a nickname so much more than Becca.
Yes, Pheobe is a typo. I feel so stupid.

lol, compared with the girls' names the boys' names are really, really simple.

So you think I should change it, then? Hmm.... I'm still not sure. Nolan isn't as unusual as I like my middle names to be. I don't know many of the members. I like Acacia Eden too... I like Phoebe more than Eden as an individual name, though. Do you have any mediumly popular name suggestions for Acacia, Yas? That don't start with an A or C.
