New here - Opinions on my top 5 combos?


I am new here but have been lurking for a while, my name is [name]Kirsty[/name]-[name]Louise[/name], I am 20, a College Student and I am from Northern [name]England[/name], I have no kids of my own and most likely won’t have for a while but I have 5 nephews (10, 8, 7, 4 & 4) and 1 niece (almost 2) that I adore and I have loved names since I was about 6. :slight_smile:

Opinions on my top 5 names right now? My kids will have two middle names since I have two middle names myself and want to carry it on, most middle names are also family names. :mrgreen:

[name]Dean[/name] [name]Andrew[/name] [name]Richard[/name]
[name]Samuel[/name] [name]Frederick[/name] [name]Asher[/name] ‘’[name]Sam[/name]’’
[name]Milo[/name] [name]Jacob[/name] [name]Owen[/name]
[name]William[/name] [name]Atticus[/name] [name]Ryan[/name] ‘’[name]Will[/name]’’
[name]Eli[/name] [name]Zachary[/name] [name]Alexander[/name]

[name]Phoebe[/name] [name]Amanda[/name] [name]Grace[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Daisy[/name] [name]Mae[/name]
[name]Isabella[/name] [name]Clementine[/name] [name]Ruby[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Kate[/name] [name]Sophia[/name]
[name]Hannah[/name] [name]Lily[/name] [name]Paige[/name]

As you can see, I don’t really care about popularity, most of the names are popular or at least definitely heard of in [name]England[/name].

Opinions? Thanks! :sunglasses:

[name]Hi[/name] [name]Kirstie[/name]-[name]Louise[/name], welcome to Nameberry ! I will give my honest opinions regarding your name list but don’t take them personally. Because you’re young, your taste in names are bound to change! I know mine have since I was your age. They’ve even changed a lot since I’ve been on this website! [name]Happy[/name] Holidays to you and your family!
[name]Dean[/name] [name]Andrew[/name] [name]Richard[/name] - [name]Dean[/name] is a short, simple and nickname proof name for which I have a soft spot. Because [name]Dean[/name] ends in “an” and [name]Andrew[/name] begins in “an”, they blend into one another. [name]May[/name] I suggest switching around the middles for a better sounding flow: [name]Dean[/name] [name]Richard[/name] [name]Andrew[/name].
[name]Samuel[/name] [name]Frederick[/name] [name]Asher[/name] ‘’[name]Sam[/name]’’ - [name]Samuel[/name] is a wonderful Biblical name and I love the middle names you’ve chosen
[name]Milo[/name] [name]Jacob[/name] [name]Owen[/name] - I love quirky [name]Milo[/name] with [name]Jacob[/name] [name]Owen[/name]
[name]William[/name] [name]Atticus[/name] [name]Ryan[/name] ‘’[name]Will[/name]’’ - I’m one of the few people on Nameberry who doesn’t like [name]William[/name] at all but this trio does look good together.
[name]Eli[/name] [name]Zachary[/name] [name]Alexander[/name] - [name]Eli[/name] is one of my favourite boys names from the Bible so this is a winner!

[name]Phoebe[/name] [name]Amanda[/name] [name]Grace[/name] - I love [name]Phoebe[/name] and [name]Grace[/name] but I’m not too crazy about [name]Amanda[/name]. It sounds good.
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Daisy[/name] [name]Mae[/name] - Oh, I love this trio! My fave from your list!
[name]Isabella[/name] [name]Clementine[/name] [name]Ruby[/name] - There are a lot of syllables with [name]Isabella[/name] & [name]Clementine[/name] but they seem to work with [name]Ruby[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Kate[/name] [name]Sophia[/name] - Ok but [name]Sophia[/name] feels like a “filler” name
[name]Hannah[/name] [name]Lily[/name] [name]Paige[/name] - [name]Love[/name] [name]Hannah[/name] and [name]Lily[/name] but I’m not a fan of [name]Paige[/name]. These three names sound good together.

I love what a proud Auntie you are! I have 2 nephews and a niece, and I [name]LOVE[/name] being an auntie! (not quite as much as being a mom, though :wink: )

Here are my opinions:
[name]Dean[/name] [name]Andrew[/name] [name]Richard[/name] – I adore the name [name]Dean[/name]! I also thought [name]Dean[/name] [name]Andrew[/name] kind of blended together, so I like the suggestion of [name]Dean[/name] [name]Richard[/name] [name]Andrew[/name]. My fave.
[name]Samuel[/name] [name]Frederick[/name] [name]Asher[/name] ‘’[name]Sam[/name]’’ – I love this combo. [name]Sam[/name] is classic and cute, although it has always been a little boring/bland to me.
[name]Milo[/name] [name]Jacob[/name] [name]Owen[/name] – I [name]LOVE[/name] this! My second favorite on your list. I would love to combine elements of my two favorites…[name]Dean[/name] [name]Milo[/name] [name]Andrew[/name] or [name]Milo[/name] [name]Jacob[/name] [name]Dean[/name] :smiley:
[name]William[/name] [name]Atticus[/name] [name]Ryan[/name] ‘’[name]Will[/name]’’ – see “[name]Sam[/name]” answer
[name]Eli[/name] [name]Zachary[/name] [name]Alexander[/name] – I like [name]Eli[/name], but as a nickname.

[name]Phoebe[/name] [name]Amanda[/name] [name]Grace[/name] – very sweet and spunky
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Daisy[/name] [name]Mae[/name] – my favorite, I love the name [name]Matilda[/name] and adore this combo!
[name]Isabella[/name] [name]Clementine[/name] [name]Ruby[/name] – ok
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Kate[/name] Sophiam-- ok
[name]Hannah[/name] [name]Lily[/name] [name]Paige[/name] – love [name]Hannah[/name] despite te popularity. I still love [name]Phoebe[/name] and [name]Matilda[/name] much more, though!

Thanks for the comments so far! :mrgreen:

I am one of the few people whose names don’t really change, an example is that I have had the name [name]Phoebe[/name] picked out since I was 8 and I am 20 now :lol: I will be very shocked if that isn’t my daughters name, I already can’t imagine her as anything else.

and yes, I am such a proud Aunt, I first became one the month after my 10th birthday and it was probably the proudest day of my life. :slight_smile:
