I've been attempting to freshen up my lists for awhile now. I keep making a bunch of combos that - while it sounds good together and I love each name individually - I don't love enough to actually use, and I end up with a very, very long list. While I take some time to shorten it, I would love it if fresh eyes could take a look at my lists and help me find combos. Make as many as you like, and feel free to please suggest names you think I might like. I'm beginning to realize that my taste has changed a bit, so some of these may not stick around. (Kindness about names is appreciated.) Thanks so much. YES, I KNOW IT'S LONG. I'M SORRY.

Amelia - it has a good meaning
Annelise - unique, and I like it.
Annika - okay
Anwen - never heard of it before. I neither hate it nor love it.
Arden - for a boy
Arwen - sounds fine
Auden - for a boy
Aurelia - Arelia ... I try to stay away from things that sound like "oral"
Brenna - unique, prefer Bryn or Brynn
Calliope - I like Callie by itself
Caroline - a bit too southern sounding for me
Carter - a last name... sounds "okay" for a boy as a first name
Charlotte - I like the sound of it, but it is close to the word harlot. No disrespect
Cheyenne - sounds fine
Delilah - prefer Kelilah
Eden - bit of a stripper name now, and that's really sad because it was originally a good name that meant "delight" as I recall.
Eleanor - it has a very good meaning, though it sounds kind of old. The nicknames Ellie and Nor are good.
Elisabeth - similar feeling to the name Elizabeth
Elizabeth - has a good meaning. I personally just like Elise, Elisa, or Eliza. The Beth part is just not my cup of tea, though it means house and gives more meaning to the name.
Evangeline - kind of long, but has a good meaning
Everly - good.
Felicity - good.
Finley - Love it, but on a boy not a girl.
Freya - sounds a bit old and foreign to me... like Helga or Gretel
Genevieve - first and middle
Graysen -  Grayson... as a middle or last name. Bryan Grayson maybe
Hazel - I like the meaning more than the sound.
Josephine - sounds good, not common either
Juliana - sounds good. I like the pronunciation Juli-ah-nah
Julianne - sounds good.
Juliette - classic, but not so common
Katherine - classic, but a bit ordinary
Lawson - a surname or a last name for a boy fine
Lore - a story
Luca - more of a boy's name I believe
Lux - sounds like Deluxe ... like some kind of suite
Maeve - Nah... sounds like young girls who are into Wicca
Meredith - sounds good, but the meaning is not the greatest.
Merritt - I live in Florida, and this is an okay town... but it's not great. I wouldn't name a kid this.
Novalie - sounds like a novelty name.
Odessa - I'm not a fan of the Odyssey, though I don't think the name sounds bad. There's a city in Texas called this.
Odette - I watched the Swan Princess. That's probably where everyone whose heard this name has heard it.
Piper - I didn't like this name at all when I initially heard it, until there was a character who had the name that it sounded good on... but that being said, I still wouldn't name a child this. Reminds me of the Pied Piper
River - like it for a boy more than on a girl
Rosalie - I really like it. This is on my favorite's list as well
Rose - the middle name Rose seems to go well with nearly everything, if not everything
Scarlett - Okay, but I've heard better
Shiloh - It has a good meaning
Spencer - This name isn't my style at all. It reminds me of a spinner on top of a hat.
Sullivan - It's interesting as a first name, though it's a surname.
Vivienne - I like the name. That spelling is fine, or Vivian. It means lively.
Wilder - Seems like a last name, and reminds me of the movie Van Wilder. Wiley for a boy is interesting to me though. But I know there will be plenty of people that will regard it as being too eccentric to be an acceptable name, probably reminding them of Wile E. Coyote.

 


Wyatt - for a boy right?


Adam - I think Adam is a bit difficult to use as a middle name.
Alexander - love it for a middle or first name. It has a great meaning too.. protector of mankind. Zachary Alexander, Joshua Alexander, Yasha Alexander, Kaiden Alexander
Atlas - not at all... a map...and a statue of a guy holding the world on his shoulders
Atticus - not horrible, just not my style
Benjamin - "son of my right hand" -- great meaning, but I think the Hebrew is a little better
Caleb - love this name. Many just think it means "dog." But it can mean whole-heart(ed)
Declan - reminds me of a deck.
Elijah - great meaning. God is Yah. Eli sounds good on a child and an adult. Also like Elias
Everett - not a bad name, it's just not on my favorite list
Ezra - means "help." I like this and similar names: Azrael (help God), Azariah (help is Yah)
Gabriel - I also prefer it for a middle name.... "mighty is God"
Jackson - I also like it for a first or middle name
James - this name goes great with so many other names. It's very versatile. It means "substitute"
Jameson - sounds good
Jensen - it's a good sounding name, but I like more names over it, so I'd never use it
Josiah - love it, unique
Jude - sounds good. Yehudah (Judah) is what this name is in Hebrew.
Kade - sounds good.
Kailor - I actually thought it was Ky-ler, and kind of prefer it that way. That name is on my list also, but spelled differently... Cuyler, Kylar, and Kyler. I've added your spelling to my list.
Kane - a last name
Lucas - not my style. Luke and puke are just too closely associated in my mind
Matthew - good, but I prefer variations: Matthias, Matteo, Matthaios, Mattaeus, Mattathias
Merrick - I like the sound of it, the meaning is okay
Nicolas - used to be a favorite, but there are names I like a lot more
Oliver - sounds cute, though it looks like Oh Liver
Samuel - means "name of God" It's a nice humble sounding name
Wilder - I responded about this name above

I was looking more for combos using these names, but since you took all that time to do that list...

 

 

Boys names on girls was kind of the point; no, that does not mean I would name a daughter David

Arden - for a boy

Auden - for a boy
Carter - a last name... sounds "okay" for a boy as a first name
Finley - Love it, but on a boy not a girl.

Graysen -  Grayson... as a middle or last name. Bryan Grayson maybe

Lawson - a surname or a last name for a boy fine
Luca - more of a boy's name I believe
River - like it for a boy more than on a girl
Spencer - This name isn't my style at all. It reminds me of a spinner on top of a hat.

Wyatt - for a boy right?

 

Maybe because it is foreign? Norse to be exact. It means "a noble woman"
Freya - sounds a bit old and foreign to me... like Helga or Gretel

 

That's exactly how it's meant to be pronounced
Juliana - sounds good. I like the pronunciation Juli-ah-nah

 

It's actually pronounced uh-rell-ya or a-ray-lee-a. It is of Latin origin and means "the golden one". At least it isn't Oralie, and yes that is a name.

Aurelia - Arelia ... I try to stay away from things that sound like "oral"

 

Good thing I'm southern
Caroline - a bit too southern sounding for me

 

When I think stripper, I think Candy, Belladona, or Dixie; I was thinking more biblical here

Eden - bit of a stripper name now, and that's really sad because it was originally a good name that meant "delight" as I recall

 

Maybe because it is Elizabeth, just spelled differently?

Elisabeth - similar feeling to the name Elizabeth

 

It's actually Latin for "light"

Lux - sounds like Deluxe ... like some kind of suite

 

Exactly where I got it from, not that it matters all that much

Odette - I watched the Swan Princess. That's probably where everyone whose heard this name has heard it.

 

Or Charmed? Holly Marie Combs?
Piper - I didn't like this name at all when I initially heard it, until there was a character who had the name that it sounded good on... but that being said, I still wouldn't name a child this. Reminds me of the Pied Piper

 

Exactly the point

Lore - a story

 

Also the point

Atlas - not at all... a map...and a statue of a guy holding the world on his shoulder
 

#9 in the US as of 2017
Oliver - sounds cute, though it looks like Oh Liver
