Here are my boy&girl lists! ...wdyt?

We’re from the deep south that was once a French territory, and I think a lot of the names I like kind of reflect where we live. I’m not sure if that’s a bad thing. lol What do you think of my names and what would you add?

Calo (I can’t remember where I saw this name, but I really liked it.)
[name]Bernard[/name] ([name]LOVE[/name], but I wouldn’t have the guts to use as a fn.)
[name]Bennett[/name] (I like the simple nn [name]Ben[/name] with this one.)

[name]Louise[/name] (my great aunt’s name, she’s still living.)

[name]Just[/name] bumping my thread.

You have a great list! My favorites are [name]Beau[/name], [name]Lewis[/name], [name]Bennett[/name], [name]Alice[/name], [name]Louise[/name], [name]Rosaline[/name], and [name]Esther[/name]. I can’t think of any particularly inspired suggestions right now, but I will try my best to think of some and get back to you later!

My favorite for your boys is [name]Bernard[/name]. I’m not sure why you wouldn’t use it as a first, I love it!
For girls I love [name]Alice[/name].

[name]Beau[/name] - For some reason I can’t stand this or any other name with “bo” in it. Something about the sound of it. Sorry that this is an annoying response but I just can’t put my finger on it!
Calo - Seems made up or a nickname for something.
[name]Sebastian[/name] - Like.
[name]Dante[/name] - Like.
[name]Bernard[/name] - NMS.
[name]Raphael[/name] - [name]Don[/name]'t really like it.
[name]Louis[/name] - Like. This was my grandpa’s name :slight_smile:
[name]Bennett[/name] - Like a lot.

[name]Alice[/name] - [name]Love[/name].
[name]Louise[/name] - Like.
[name]Eden[/name] - Like, but not as much.
[name]Rosaline[/name]/[name]Rosalie[/name] - Meh. [name]Just[/name] ok for me.
[name]Lisette[/name] - NMS.
[name]Caroline[/name] - [name]Love[/name]!
[name]Angelique[/name]/[name]Angelina[/name] - Prefer [name]Angelina[/name], though there is the [name]Angelina[/name] [name]Jolie[/name] connection.

I love [name]Bernard[/name] and [name]Raphael[/name] from your boys list! I used to babysit a boy named [name]Bernard[/name] (he was a [name]Bernard[/name] III) who’s probably about 16 now, and I totally think it can work as a first name. His parents called him [name]Bern[/name], [name]Bear[/name] or B-Three.

I also love [name]Louise[/name], [name]Rosalie[/name] and [name]Caroline[/name] from your girls list.

Some more suggestions:


[name]Beau[/name] - nah, I’ve never liked this. I picture a man in his sixties; can’t see this working on a child.
Calo - would make an interestin nickname for…something. But definitely doesn’t work as a full name.
[name]Sebastian[/name] - my absolute favorite boy’s name!!!
[name]Dante[/name] - I like this okay.
[name]Bernard[/name] - strongly dislike this.
[name]Raphael[/name] - I adore this name! [name]Sebastian[/name] [name]Raphael[/name] is actually one of my favorite first/middle combos!
[name]Louis[/name] - nice for a middle name; can’t quite see it as a first name these days. [name]Sebastian[/name] [name]Louis[/name]?
[name]Bennett[/name] - really don’t like it. [name]Way[/name] too surname-y for my tastes, and has a bit of a trendy vibe to me.

[name]Alice[/name] - lovely. Great first or middle name.
[name]Louise[/name] - I don’t particularly care for it. I do like [name]Louisa[/name], however, preferably pronounced with an s- rather than z- sound.
[name]Eden[/name] - nooo…seems so trendy to me.
[name]Rosaline[/name]/[name]Rosalie[/name] - I prefer [name]Rosalie[/name], but don’t love either. I adore [name]Rosamund[/name] though - I know that’s a bit more out there.
[name]Lisette[/name] - so pretty. I had a roommate who pronounced it with a soft s- rather than a z-, and I thought that was so nice!
[name]Caroline[/name] - I’ve never been a huge fan of this name, but there is certainly nothing wrong it with it. I prefer it as a middle.
[name]Angelique[/name]/[name]Angelina[/name] - [name]Angelique[/name] is too…icky or something. I’ve always loved [name]Angelina[/name] - makes me think of the series of picture books about the little mouse dancer, [name]Angelina[/name] Ballerina :slight_smile: Too bad a certain actress has sort of tainted the name, in my opinion :frowning:

If I had to make some first/middle combos from your names, I’d pick [name]Sebastian[/name] [name]Raphael[/name] and [name]Lisette[/name] [name]Angelina[/name] as my favorites!

My favorites are [name]Beau[/name], [name]Raphael[/name], [name]Louis[/name] and [name]Bennett[/name] for the boys and for the girls, [name]Eden[/name], [name]Alice[/name], [name]Louise[/name] and [name]Caroline[/name]… all classic and beautiful choices (plus [name]Eden[/name] boasts the adorable nn [name]Edie[/name]!). I do agree with palejewel that [name]Rosamund[/name] is a stunning choice too.

Thanks for the feedback everyone! :slight_smile: I really like some of the names you’ve suggested [name]Stephanie[/name]. [name]Julian[/name], [name]Adrian[/name], [name]Nadine[/name], [name]Elise[/name], and [name]Elodie[/name] are just my style. [name]Rosamund[/name] is also quite nice. palejewel, I think of [name]Angelina[/name] Ballerina too. She’s just so cute, and I’ve always wanted a little ballerina of my own.

[name]Love[/name] [name]Bennett[/name](I have one) and [name]Beau[/name] for a boy, and [name]Alice[/name] is my fav girl name from your list. I also think [name]Lisette[/name] is adorable!

I know a guy in his late twenties whose name is, [name]Bernard[/name], yet goes by [name]Beau[/name]/[name]Bo[/name] (not sure of the spelling).

I have a niece named, [name]Aly[/name].s0n, who sometimes goes by [name]Alice[/name] (by her great-grandmother). She was named after her great-great grandmother.

[name]Bennett[/name] - [name]LOVE[/name]!
[name]Sebastian[/name] - love!
Calo - I’d prefer just [name]Cale[/name]. The word callow might not have the meaning you want to convey in your kid
[name]Dante[/name] - like, but I prefer [name]Darian[/name] or [name]Darius[/name]
[name]Bernard[/name] - what about [name]Benedict[/name]? between [name]Bernard[/name] and [name]Bennett[/name]
[name]Raphael[/name] - okay, what about [name]Reid[/name]
[name]Louis[/name] - not a favorite of might, prefer [name]Lucas[/name]

[name]Alice[/name] - [name]LOVE[/name]!
[name]Caroline[/name] - like a lot!
[name]Louise[/name] -meh, [name]Louisa[/name] or [name]Lucia[/name] are preferable to me
[name]Eden[/name] - nice, [name]Adina[/name]?
[name]Rosalie[/name] - pretty
[name]Lisette[/name] - ok, Liselle?
[name]Angelique[/name]/[name]Angelina[/name] - meh, [name]Annette[/name]?
