Opinions and Suggestions?


I was wondering if you could give me opinions on my list of names so far. I like all the names on the list, but I’m no good with combinations for first/middle names so please mix them up as much as you like. Please be honest, if you think something is awful (or has awful connotations) please tell me!

I’m british (if that makes a difference) so there are a lot of English names and a couple of Irish names thrown in there. My surname is very short and one syllable.

Also if anyone has any other suggestions I’m open to ideas!

Here are my favorite boys’ names on your list:
[name]Isaac[/name] [name]Leo[/name]
[name]Harrison[/name] [name]Max[/name] - With your short last name, I would go with [name]Maxwell[/name] instead of [name]Max[/name]… [name]Harrison[/name] [name]Maxwell[/name].
[name]Oliver[/name] [name]Sam[/name] - I would go with [name]Oliver[/name] [name]Samuel[/name]!

Mixing and matching other names on your boys’ list, I also like:
[name]Samuel[/name] [name]Ross[/name]
[name]Isaac[/name] [name]Samuel[/name]
[name]Isaac[/name] [name]Thomas[/name]
[name]Thomas[/name] [name]Edward[/name]
[name]Edward[/name] [name]Ross[/name]
[name]Leo[/name] [name]Thomas[/name]

For girls, my favorite combinations on your list are:
[name]Cora[/name] [name]Brooke[/name]
[name]Arianne[/name] [name]Rose[/name]
[name]Juliet[/name] [name]Adele[/name]
[name]Isla[/name] [name]Rose[/name]

[name]Lucy[/name] [name]Grace[/name]
[name]Cora[/name] [name]Charlotte[/name]

I love your list! It’s very British (I absolutely adore that) and quirky and charming and so cute (in a good way–I can see all these names on adults).

[name]Hope[/name] this helps!

For the most part, I like your name list a lot, though there are some that I would definitely eliminate.

[name]Jasper[/name] [name]Ellis[/name]: I used to really like [name]Jasper[/name], but now it’s a bit of a dog name.

[name]Harvey[/name] [name]Jacob[/name]: I’m not a fan of [name]Harvey[/name], but it’s a fine combo.

[name]Dexter[/name] [name]Jay[/name]: I don’t like [name]Dexter[/name] or [name]Jay[/name].

[name]Harrison[/name] [name]Max[/name]: [name]Harrison[/name] is too surnamey for me, and [name]Max[/name] is too nicknamey for me.

[name]Oliver[/name] [name]Sam[/name]: What’s wrong with [name]Samuel[/name]?? [name]Oliver[/name] [name]Samuel[/name] would be excellent.

[name]Jack[/name] [name]Louis[/name]: I prefer [name]Jack[/name] as a nickname for [name]John[/name], but otherwise it’s nice.

[name]Toby[/name] [name]Elliott[/name]: [name]Toby[/name] is too much of a nickname for me, but [name]Tobias[/name] [name]Elliott[/name] would be great.

[name]Ashton[/name] [name]Connor[/name]: [name]Ashton[/name] is way trendy. [name]Asher[/name] is fine, though.

[name]Jordan[/name] [name]Blake[/name]: [name]Jordan[/name] is pretty much seen as a feminine name (at least in the US) and [name]Blake[/name] is, unfortunately, heading that way too…

[name]Thomas[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name]: I love this one!

[name]Reuben[/name] [name]Jake[/name]: I’ve never been a fan of [name]Reuben[/name].

[name]Kurtis[/name] [name]Harry[/name]: I don’t like this one. Why [name]Kurtis[/name] and not [name]Curtis[/name]?

[name]Corbin[/name] [name]Oliver[/name]: [name]Corbin[/name] seems trendy, but I love [name]Oliver[/name].

[name]Alistair[/name] [name]Edward[/name]: I love this one!! It’s very handsome.

[name]Louis[/name] [name]Chase[/name]: I prefer [name]Louis[/name] [name]Charles[/name].

[name]Isaac[/name] [name]Leo[/name]: I love this one, too!

[name]Samuel[/name] [name]Tobias[/name]: And this one, even though I’m not that much of a fan of [name]Samuel[/name].

[name]Oliver[/name] [name]Tristin[/name]: What’s wrong with [name]Tristan[/name]? It’s misspelled otherwise. I like the combo, though.

[name]Jackson[/name] [name]Ross[/name]: [name]Jackson[/name] is too surnamey/trendy for me.

[name]Oscar[/name] [name]Reece[/name]: [name]Oscar[/name] is nice.

[name]Thomas[/name] [name]Malachy[/name]: I love it!


[name]Oscar[/name] [name]Tobias[/name]
[name]Isaac[/name] [name]Oliver[/name]
[name]Samuel[/name] [name]Thomas[/name]
[name]Leo[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name]
[name]Louis[/name] [name]Jasper[/name]

[name]Lucy[/name] [name]Elsa[/name]: It doesn’t flow quite right, since they both have two syllables and a prominent S sound. What about [name]Lucy[/name] [name]Elisabeth[/name]?

[name]Kate[/name] [name]Isabelle[/name]: [name]Kate[/name] is too nicknamey for me. What about: [name]Katherine[/name] [name]Isabelle[/name] or [name]Katarina[/name] [name]Isabelle[/name]?

[name]Rowan[/name] [name]Grace[/name]: [name]Rowan[/name] is too masculine for me, so it seems out of place next to [name]Grace[/name].

[name]Maisie[/name] [name]Ella[/name]: [name]Maisie[/name] and [name]Ella[/name] are both nicknames. What about [name]Margaret[/name] [name]Ella[/name], nn [name]Maisie[/name], or [name]Margaret[/name] [name]Eloise[/name]?

[name]Arianne[/name] [name]Rose[/name]: I prefer it spelled [name]Ariane[/name]… the combo isn’t fantastic, but there’s nothing really wrong with it.

[name]Ellena[/name] [name]Faith[/name]: Why the extra L? That just makes it misspelled. [name]Elena[/name] is lovely just like that.

[name]Imogen[/name] [name]Katy[/name]: I can’t see the appeal of [name]Imogen[/name], but it’s okay.

[name]Lydia[/name] [name]Ruby[/name]: [name]Lydia[/name] is one of my favorite names!

[name]Cora[/name] [name]Brooke[/name]: [name]Cora[/name] is very nice, but [name]Brooke[/name] just downclasses the combo. [name]Cora[/name] [name]Bridget[/name] or [name]Cora[/name] [name]Bryony[/name] would be nice.

[name]Lara[/name] [name]Paige[/name]: Doesn’t do anything for me.

[name]Sorelle[/name] [name]Abigail[/name]: What is [name]Sorelle[/name]??

[name]Juliet[/name] [name]Adele[/name]: I love this one! [name]Juliet[/name] and [name]Adele[/name] are both gorgeous names.

[name]Addison[/name] [name]Blue[/name]: [name]Addison[/name] is horribly trendy and masculine. [name]Blue[/name] is not a name. [name]Adelaide[/name] or [name]Adela[/name] [name]Blue[/name] would be okay.

[name]Lucia[/name] [name]Daisy[/name]: I love this one!

[name]Charlotte[/name] [name]Mia[/name]: [name]Charlotte[/name] is great, but [name]Mia[/name] is a little insubstantial. What about [name]Charlotte[/name] [name]Maia[/name] or [name]Charlotte[/name] [name]Maria[/name]?

Harle [name]Olivia[/name]: What is Harle supposed to be? I love [name]Olivia[/name].

[name]Isla[/name] [name]Rose[/name]: [name]Isla[/name] is great, if a bit trendy, but [name]Rose[/name] is very filler. Maybe [name]Isla[/name] [name]Rosemary[/name] or [name]Isla[/name] [name]Rosalie[/name]?

[name]Caitlyn[/name] [name]Emily[/name]: The Y isn’t necessary… [name]Caitlin[/name] [name]Emily[/name] is pretty.

[name]Tabitha[/name] [name]Rose[/name]: I really like [name]Tabitha[/name].

[name]Ashleigh[/name] [name]Hannah[/name]: [name]Ashleigh[/name] is awful and tryndeigh. It fits nowhere in your list of nice classic names!

[name]Megan[/name] [name]Esme[/name]: [name]Megan[/name] is too common for me personally. [name]Esme[/name] is nice.

[name]Katie[/name] [name]Raphaelle[/name]: [name]Raphaelle[/name] is very pretty and unexpected. [name]Katie[/name] is nicknamey.

[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Reese[/name]: I really like [name]Eliza[/name]; [name]Reese[/name], not so much.

Everwaiteing -
Thanks for the comments! I really like the combination [name]Lydia[/name] [name]Grace[/name].

[name]Serendipity[/name] -
Thanks for the positive feedback. The boys names you’ve highlighted as not great are actually all ones that I’m not too sure about myself, so that has been reinforced for me! I also love [name]Theo[/name], [name]Charlie[/name] and [name]Elodie[/name] (really really like this).

Irisrose -
I love [name]Jordan[/name] for a girl (although it is mainly used for boys over here) but unfortunately due to the fame of [name]Katie[/name] [name]Price[/name] (aka [name]Jordan[/name]) it would just sound incredibly tacky for a girl’s name due to the association.
Most of the spellings you’ve highlighted are just spelling mistakes (sorry)! I like traditional spellings so I wouldn’t try to invent my own. It’s just a case of having briefly scanned books and websites like this one and not having remembered all the correct spelling for my list yet! :slight_smile:
[name]Sorelle[/name] is an Italian name, Harle is French (although I can’t find the acute accented E on my keyboard!)
[name]Rose[/name] is my sister’s name, so ther [name]Rose[/name] as a middle name is a bit of a family thing.
[name]Love[/name] the combo [name]Isla[/name] [name]Raphaelle[/name]! Thanks for taking the time to comment :slight_smile:
