Thank you in advance!!

So I’m going to preface this with surname-names not being my thing to get all my biases out on the table.

There are two shared between our lists - [name_m]Graham[/name_m] and [name_m]Grant[/name_m].

My top 5:
[name_u]Callahan[/name_u] - it sounds cheerful, can shorten to [name_u]Cal[/name_u] for an easy nickname but other options in there, easily pronounced.
[name_u]Rory[/name_u] - much prefer it on a boy. [name_f]Cheerful[/name_f] again and a lovely sound.
[name_u]Spencer[/name_u] - again, much prefer on a boy. It sounds distinguished and calm.
[name_u]Darcy[/name_u] - not a huge fan of it on a girl but like it on boys. Would have to weigh up where you live and how the gender split on this one would affect you.
[name_u]Ellis[/name_u] - it just sounds nice? (honestly, no good reasons for picking any of these)

Bottom 5:
[name_m]Shepherd[/name_m] - I can only see it as a word (and not a particularly interesting one?). It’s a perennial nameberry favourite though, so maybe I’m just outdated.
[name_m]Tennyson[/name_m] - too tied to [name_m]Tennyson[/name_m].
[name_u]Bowie[/name_u] - either a dog or a singer to me, I’m afraid.
Bingley - it sounds like a search engine or a town name (not helped by the fact the town of Bingley here in [name_f]England[/name_f] isn’t the nicest place I’ve ever been in my life).
[name_u]Sawyer[/name_u] - I just don’t like it :joy: apparently today is my day for unpopular opinions.

I like:

Anderson
[name_m]Bingham[/name_m]
[name_u]Callahan[/name_u]
[name_u]Channing[/name_u]

[name_m]Watson[/name_m]

[name_u]Keats[/name_u]
[name_u]Ramsey[/name_u]
[name_m]Shepherd[/name_m]
[name_m]Wilson[/name_m]
