Whoops, missed the unisex ones!
I love Jude, Elliot and Kelley on a boy

Really dislike Cassidy and Addison

For girls I love Genevieve and Arabella! I dislike Ruth because it sounds so dated and I just don’t like the sound of Sofie.
For a boy I like Graham and Jude best! Alan and Stefan are my least favorite out of your boy names. I just find them to be plain and not that attractive.

Why are half you’re names either names of characters in the vampire diaries or actors of the show? I counted like 10 names with ties to that show... I don’t think that’s a coincidence lol.

Anna and Lara for girls
Graham for boys

Girls:
I don’t like:
Anne, Anna, Diane, Ruth, Christy, Amy, Katie, Genevieve, Alyssa, and Miranda are all just too boring and plain for me.
Sofie and Isobel and their other spellings are both in the top 5 in popularity, they are pretty names but they loose their appeal when there are four other girls in the class with the same name.
Missy is adorable, but only for a baby or a nickname.
Mercy is just horrible.

I like:
Love Arabella, so beautiful.
Josephine is classic and pretty and there are so many nickname options: Joe, JoJo, Josie, Sephine, Sephie, Eppie.
Elena (Ay-lay-nah) is beautiful, you might also like Alena (ah-lay-nah) or Elaina (E-lay-nah).
Lydia is pretty.
Caroline I like because I love the nickname Caro. You might also like Cora or Coraline.
Marah I love but without the H- make it Mara. And since you like Arabella, you might also like Marabelle or Marabella.
Lara is pretty, maybe Alara?
Nina is cute, maybe Mina?
I’ve always loved Matilda. It’s classic and I LOVE the nickname Tilly.
Miri would make a cute nickname, maybe for the first name Mira?
Miri (as a nickname only)

Boys:
I don’t like:
Ty is a nickname. Adam, Josiah, Alan, Dean, Stefan, and Jim are all just boring to me. Alaric I like but not with the nickname Rick. I think Alaric would make a pretty cool middle name, though. And Trevor, I’m a bit of a Harry Potter fan, so it reminds me of Neville’s toad. But, that association aside, I still just don’t like the name.

I like:
Damon- I LOVE Damon. It’s so handsome and it’s one of my personal favorites.
Samuel- I think Sam is just lovely on a boy, Samuel is strong and handsome.
Cole, Ian, and Heath are all really nice names, I really like those three.
I fell in love with the name Westley ever since I read the classic The Princess Bride. It’s charming.
Clark and Graham I LOVE.
Oliver is nice and Ollie is really cute.
I love Eli.

You have so many good boy names. It’s so hard to choose.
