They aren't in any order, that would be wayyyyy too hard. I don't have that many favorite boy names, so several of them are GPs that I'm not sure I'd use... (Jethro and Emrys in particular). Sorry, I just felt compelled to include them. None of the names are misspelled or made-up.

{girls}
Bridget Cordelia
Eliza Guinevere
Cassandra Juno
Sasha Beatrix
Penelope Diane
Lucia Margaret
Imogen Sylvie
Fiona Jessamine
Aurelia Seren
Veronica Esmé
Phoebe Susannah
Cordelia Margo
Sabrina Calliope
Yasmin Helena
Sylvia Tamsin


{boys}
Garrett Matthias
Simon Leander
Tobias Arthur
Dexter Benjamin
Travis Warren
William Alec

Bridget Cordelia - LOVE Cordelia. Bridget is okay. Both complement each other nicely. A name straight out of Ireland :(
Eliza Guinevere - LOVE this name. Eliza used to be one of my favorites, though it has slipped down the list a bit. Guinevere is gorgeous and great in the middle name spot.
Cassandra Juno - LOVE! :) Juno gives Cassandra a modern feel without being trendy.
Sasha Beatrix - I really like the spelling Beatrix, though I dont have the guts to put it in the first name spot I think its great as a middle. Sasha is very pretty though might not age very well, it goes great with Beatrix
Penelope Diane - Hm. Very classical, Penny is growing on me as a nn but Penelope is a bit too clunky for my taste.
Lucia Margaret - LOVE Lucia, and LOVE Margaret in the middle name spot.
Imogen Sylvie - I really like both these names Immy would be an ADORABLE nn, but in combination they aren't working for me.
Fiona Jessamine - Fiona is okay for me, it goes really well with your other names. I dislike Jessamine.
Aurelia Seren - I prefer Aura, Audra or Ariel. Aurelia is just to cluky and awkward for me to say. Seren goes nicely with it though.
Veronica Esmé <3
Phoebe Susannah - LOVE Phoebe, Susannah is okay ... I think my favorite Phoebe combos are Phoebe Elaine/Lorraine or Phoebe Adele
Cordelia Margo - <3, but I prefer the spelling Margeaux
Sabrina Calliope - okay
Yasmin Helena - GORGEOUS ;) though Helena Yasmin has a better flow.
Sylvia Tamsin - LOVE. Sylvie is an adorable nn & Tamsin goes with it nicely.

Over all I think your girls names are great and they all go together nicely and have the same sort of fell/style without being matchy or predictable :)

{boys}
Garrett Matthias - LOVE Matthias, Garrett is okay for me.
Simon Leander - <3 Great combo.
Tobias Arthur - I like both of these names, though I think Arthur Tobias would have better flow, plus I fear the nn Toby :P
Dexter Benjamin - <3
Travis Warren - Travis is a bit 80s to me, overly popular in my generation. Warren is nice and goes well with Travis
William Alec - <3
Samuel Gideon - I like both of these names but Samuel is more of just okay for me and Gideon I would only like as a middle, a bit to unusable for everyday.
Benjamin Clark - Okay, nice combo but not my favorite
Matthew Emrys - I actually am starting to like Emrys (discovered on AppellationMountain) but only for a middle. Matthew is okay, again a bit too overused in my generation
Jethro Anthony - Jethro, no! I don't care how awesome Mark Harmon is :) I have an anti-bias for Anthony, never liked the name.
Zachary Dillon - Cute. Nice combo.
Wade Matthias - Hm. I like the fn Wade a bit more than Garrett, but I like the combo Garrett Matthias more :\
Nathaniel Dean - Perfect!
Travis Gregory - Again not a huge fan of Travis, I think I like Travis Warren a bit better though.

Jethro Anthony - Jethro, no! I don't care how awesome Mark Harmon is smile.gif I have an anti-bias for Anthony, never liked the name.


Thanks, Katie!

I really like Phoebe Elaine but I don't plan to use Elaine (though I love it) because that is my exact middle name and I think it would be weird to name by child so directly after myself. My middle name is my favorite aunt's middle name so it is a tad traditional (which is unusual in my family). That said, this relates to the reason I like Helena - it is indirectly related to Elaine. I don't think I'd use it in the first name spot, though, because I'm not fond of the "hel" sound being at the beginning of the first name.

Thanks for the compliment on my girl names! :(

Funny, I have the exact problem with Arthur Tobias! I fear the nickname Arty. :)

I discovered Emrys on the BBC show Merlin and it is real GP for me. I love the sound but doubt I'd ever use it. That's why I paired it with a simple but handsome name like Matthew. Oh, and I LOVE Appellation Mountain.

As for Jethro, yes I completely understand. Is it the Beverly Hillbillies thing? That's why it is a GP. I'd love to use it but I'm already a complete hick. I actually am not a Mark Harmon fan, though I like NCIS. I'm an Abby fan. :)


Cassandra Juno - Cassandra is ok (The meaning ruins it for me [man chaser]) I like Juno for a boy
Sasha Beatrix - I like Sasha for a boy (Russian) Beatrix is ok, I like it much better than Beatrice

Travis Warren - I love Travis, Like Wren Better than Warren
William Alec - I LOVE LOVE LOVE William, I like Alexander better than Alec
Nathaniel Dean - Like Nathan Dean better

Thanks, Ryley O-Texas!

That isn't the exact meaning of Cassandra, though you may be paraphrasing I suppose. Most sites list it as "she who entangles men," "prophetess," or "shining upon man." I'd definitely say the meaning is debated. I'm more interested in the story of Cassandra than the meaning anyway, though. I also have a friend named Cassandra and when I asked she said she had never been teased about her name. ;)

I know Sasha is Russian and short for Alexander. Doesn't bother me a bit considering the wide number of masculine names used for girls. Plus, I feel like Sasha is solidly female in the U.S. considering its popularity for girls in 2009 #271 for girls and it didn't even chart on the boy list. I feel safe. I agree, Beatrix is nicer that Beatrice... that's why I picked it lol.

Not fond of Wren as a name. NMS, but thanks anyway.

For some reason I positively can't stand Alexander but I adore Xander and Alec as separate names. Weird, right?

Nathan is fine, but I just don't like when pairs have similar endings so I'm not a fan of Nathan Dean, but thanks.

Hmmm, where did the comment about being sorry for my girls go? And my reply to it, too? Did she take it off or did one of the moderators? I hope I didn't do anything wrong. :(

Someone might have taken it off.. Cause it was really rude to say :( especially about perfectly normal and beautiful names :)

If anything, it was taken off because of her <3 You responded quite maturly and all, you didn't name call or get offensive back at her lol. So I wouldn't worry about it! <3
