[name_f]Lila[/name_f] [name_u]Eden[/name_u] is delightful, [name_f]Maggie[/name_f] [name_u]Sloane[/name_u] is lovely and I really like [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] [name_f]Nadine[/name_f] too!!

[name_f]Becca[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f] is the only one im not a huge fan of

@greyblue thank you so much!

[name_u]June[/name_u] [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f] instantly stood out to me; she’s beautiful and I love the light and airy feel! [name_f]Lila[/name_f] [name_u]Eden[/name_u] is my next favourite.

@adelina_sophia thank you for your feedback!

My favorite combinations are [name_u]June[/name_u] [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f], [name_f]Leah[/name_f] [name_u]Sinclaire[/name_u], and [name_f]Lila[/name_f] [name_u]Eden[/name_u]… ultimately I voted for [name_f]Leah[/name_f] [name_u]Sinclaire[/name_u].

It feels well-balanced with being gentle and feminine yet a bit edgy and sophisticated. I also personally prefer the first name [name_f]Leah[/name_f] to [name_f]Lila[/name_f] or [name_u]June[/name_u], the latter two I feel are increasingly becoming popular. [name_u]June[/name_u] is classic so you can’t really go wrong. [name_f]Lila[/name_f] could have some spelling issues since there’s so many different spellings of it. [name_f]Leah[/name_f]/[name_f]Lia[/name_f] can be spelled different ways too but I think it’s standard enough and definitely not too popular right now.

As for the other names I like each name individually but just not in the combinations that they’re in. And as for [name_f]Maggie[/name_f], [name_f]Gwen[/name_f], and [name_f]Becca[/name_f], I think I would prefer their full names, with the opportunity for those as nicknames, and I would probably mix and match like this: [name_f]Margaret[/name_f] [name_f]Olivia[/name_f], [name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f], [name_f]Rebecca[/name_f] [name_u]Sloane[/name_u].

[name_f]Becca[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f]

[name_u]June[/name_u] [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f] - Very pretty!! I think [name_f]Juno[/name_f] [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f] is also gorgeous

[name_f]Clara[/name_f] [name_u]Morgan[/name_u] - not my favorite

[name_f]Leah[/name_f] [name_u]Sinclaire[/name_u] - not a fan

[name_f]Chloe[/name_f] [name_f]Nadine[/name_f] - [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] is too popular for taste. What about [name_f]Cleo[/name_f] [name_f]Nadine[/name_f], [name_f]Cora[/name_f] [name_f]Nadine[/name_f], [name_f]Celia[/name_f] [name_f]Nadine[/name_f], [name_f]Cara[/name_f] [name_f]Nadine[/name_f], [name_f]Cassia[/name_f] [name_f]Nadine[/name_f], [name_u]Clair[/name_u] [name_f]Nadine[/name_f], [name_f]Calla[/name_f] [name_f]Nadine[/name_f], [name_f]Calliope[/name_f] [name_f]Nadine[/name_f], [name_f]Callista[/name_f] [name_f]Nadine[/name_f], [name_f]Clover[/name_f] [name_f]Nadine[/name_f], [name_f]Cosima[/name_f] [name_f]Nadie[/name_f]?

[name_f]Gwen[/name_f] [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] - I don’t think this flows very well. Some suggestions [name_f]Giselle[/name_f] [name_f]Olivia[/name_f], [name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_f]Olivia[/name_f], [name_f]Guinevere[/name_f] [name_f]Olivia[/name_f], [name_f]Camille[/name_f] [name_f]Olivia[/name_f],

[name_f]Maggie[/name_f] [name_u]Sloane[/name_u] - [name_f]Maggie[/name_f] is a little too nicknamey for me. What about [name_f]Mallory[/name_f] [name_u]Sloane[/name_u], [name_f]Mira[/name_f] [name_u]Sloane[/name_u], [name_f]Miriam[/name_f] [name_u]Sloane[/name_u], [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_u]Sloane[/name_u], [name_f]Maia[/name_f] [name_u]Sloane[/name_u], [name_f]Mariah[/name_f] [name_u]Sloane[/name_u], [name_f]Mariella[/name_f] [name_u]Sloane[/name_u]?

[name_f]Lila[/name_f] [name_u]Eden[/name_u] - Beautiful!

@kittylitter thank you for explaining your choice, and for the suggestions! I especially love [name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f].

@lauren.ley wow, so many great suggestions! Very helpful. I love [name_f]Maia[/name_f] [name_u]Sloane[/name_u] (although I prefer the spelling [name_f]Maya[/name_f]). And hearing that [name_f]Gwen[/name_f] [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] does not flow well is helpful. Thanks!!

[name_u]June[/name_u] [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f] and [name_f]Lila[/name_f] [name_u]Eden[/name_u] are definite standouts in a beautiful way. My least favourites are [name_f]Becca[/name_f] and [name_u]Clare[/name_u].

[name_f]Becca[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f] - I don’t like [name_f]Becca[/name_f] as a standalone name. [name_f]Rebecca[/name_f] is much prettier, in my opinion.
[name_u]June[/name_u] [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f] - [name_u]June[/name_u] is my favorite name, but [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f] has such a different vibe to me. Objectively, it does sound nice and classic and unexpected, but these are just two names I would never pair together.
[name_f]Clara[/name_f] [name_u]Morgan[/name_u] - [name_u]Morgan[/name_u] is so trendy to me after going to school with a million Morgans. [name_f]Clara[/name_f] deserves a more classic middle, I think.
[name_f]Leah[/name_f] [name_u]Sinclaire[/name_u] - This one is perfectly middle-of-the road. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing excites me about it, either.
[name_f]Chloe[/name_f] [name_f]Nadine[/name_f] - Again, I just think these are mismatched. [name_f]Nadine[/name_f] feels dated while [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] is so current.
[name_f]Gwen[/name_f] [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] - I love [name_f]Gwen[/name_f], and I love one-syllable names paired with vowel-beginning middles. I think it helps the flow a lot.
[name_f]Maggie[/name_f] [name_u]Sloane[/name_u] - I would prefer a full name for [name_f]Maggie[/name_f], but otherwise this might be my favorite from your list. I think the sleek [name_u]Sloane[/name_u] helps ground [name_f]Maggie[/name_f].
[name_f]Lila[/name_f] [name_u]Eden[/name_u] - Neither of these names are quite my style, but I love this combination.

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] there.

Here are my thoughts:

[name_f]Becca[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f]-I don’t care for this. First off, it’s too nick-namey. And secondly, I feel like it’s sort of dated & sort of snobby sounding. I’m not sure why.

[name_u]June[/name_u] [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f]-I like [name_u]June[/name_u]. It’s simple, sophisticated yet still cute for a little one. [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f] is not my favorite, but this combo is fine. I like [name_u]June[/name_u] [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] best from your mn choices.

[name_f]Clara[/name_f] [name_u]Morgan[/name_u]-[name_f]Clara[/name_f] is good. It’s not super interesting, but I think it’s just because I see it on this website too often. It’s a simple, pleasant sounding classic.

[name_f]Leah[/name_f] [name_u]Sinclaire[/name_u]-I like [name_f]Leah[/name_f]. It’s like [name_f]Clara[/name_f]; simple & pretty, but not super interesting. Nothing wrong w/it at all. Is [name_u]Sinclaire[/name_u] a family name? Go for it, if so. If not, it’s a little odd. [name_f]Leah[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f] or [name_f]Leah[/name_f] [name_u]Sloane[/name_u] are nice.

[name_f]Chloe[/name_f] [name_f]Nadine[/name_f]-I like this. [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] is friendly & cute sounding. It’s not terribly over done, I don’t think. [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] [name_f]Nadine[/name_f] is a nice combo.

[name_f]Gwen[/name_f] [name_f]Olivia[/name_f]-I’m getting the feeling that you don’t mind nns as full names. I like [name_f]Gwen[/name_f] a lot. It’s simple, smart & fairly uncommon. [name_f]Gwen[/name_f] [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] is lovely; I would love [name_f]Gwendolen[/name_f] [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] personally.

[name_f]Maggie[/name_f] [name_u]Sloane[/name_u]-[name_f]Maggie[/name_f] is cute, but since it’s such a cutesy name, I’d definitely prefer this as a nn. [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] or [name_f]Magdalena[/name_f] are cool options, but then there is always [name_f]Margaret[/name_f] too. I love [name_u]Sloane[/name_u]! Any chance you’d use that as a fn?

[name_f]Lila[/name_f] [name_u]Eden[/name_u]-[name_f]Lila[/name_f] is pretty. Not super exciting, but sweet. I like this spelling too; looks sleeker than [name_f]Lilah[/name_f] to me. [name_f]Lila[/name_f] [name_u]Eden[/name_u] is cool. [name_f]Lila[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f] would be pretty too, although I suppose [name_u]Eden[/name_u] is more interesting.

[name_f]Hope[/name_f] this helps. :slight_smile:

[name_f]Becca[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f]- Feels incomplete and feels like a bit of a boring combination to me

[name_u]June[/name_u] [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f]- I like both names but I find the overall combination a little stuffy, how about [name_u]June[/name_u] [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] or [name_f]Maggie[/name_f] [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f]

[name_f]Clara[/name_f] [name_u]Morgan[/name_u]- As you can tell from my signature [name_f]Clara[/name_f] is my favourite girls name however I find this combination a little tame, but it is ok, is [name_u]Morgan[/name_u] an honour name? Although I do love an interesting/ out there middle, honour names trump everything for me. I do however like [name_f]Clara[/name_f] [name_f]Nadine[/name_f].

[name_f]Leah[/name_f] [name_u]Sinclaire[/name_u]- I’m not normally keen on [name_u]Sinclaire[/name_u] however this is a lovely combination that had a really sweet flow.

[name_f]Chloe[/name_f] [name_f]Nadine[/name_f]- Sweet

[name_f]Gwen[/name_f] [name_f]Olivia[/name_f]- I just love this, it’s just so spunky yet has a really gorgeous feel to it

[name_f]Maggie[/name_f] [name_u]Sloane[/name_u]- [name_u]Love[/name_u] [name_f]Maggie[/name_f], not sure about [name_u]Sloane[/name_u] (unisex surname types aren’t my style) although it does flow well with [name_f]Maggie[/name_f]

[name_f]Lila[/name_f] [name_u]Eden[/name_u]- I love both [name_f]Lila[/name_f] and [name_u]Eden[/name_u], the flow could be better but the short yet sweet nature of both names trumps flow

Other than [name_f]Becca[/name_f] (probably because I grew up with too many [name_f]Rebecca[/name_f]’s/[name_f]Becca[/name_f]’s) I like all of your first name choices.

I ended up voting for
[name_f]Clara[/name_f] [name_u]Morgan[/name_u]
[name_f]Leah[/name_f] [name_u]Sinclaire[/name_u]
[name_f]Gwen[/name_f] [name_f]Olivia[/name_f]
[name_f]Lila[/name_f] [name_u]Eden[/name_u]

[name_u]June[/name_u] [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f] is an absolutely stunning combo! [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] [name_f]Nadine[/name_f], [name_f]Clara[/name_f] [name_u]Morgan[/name_u] and [name_f]Lila[/name_f] [name_u]Eden[/name_u] are also very beautiful.

My top 3 are…
[name_f]Lila[/name_f] [name_u]Eden[/name_u]
[name_f]Maggie[/name_f] [name_u]Sloane[/name_u]
[name_u]June[/name_u] [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f]

I wouldn’t change a thing about them! I love the combos & think [name_f]Maggie[/name_f] is great as a standalone name!

@quirkflower thank you for the specific, detailed perspective. This helps me a lot! I have a habit of (mis)matching classic firsts with trendy middles and vice versa; I was wondering when someone would notice. :slight_smile:

@michellem thank you so much for your feedback! Yes I do like nicknames as full names haha, but I’m learning most people prefer longer versions of names - interesting! [name_u]Sinclaire[/name_u] is a name I just think is super cool – but I would only use it as a middle name. Also, [name_u]Sloane[/name_u] was my #1 for years! It would’ve been on this list as a first, but I couldn’t think of a middle name that flows well with it.

@lulu82 thank you so much!

@asunflower thank you, I appreciate the feedback!

@auntie_a thank you so much!
