Firstly, I think your parents’ chose great names for you and your siblings!
I think [name]Philippa[/name] [name]Wren[/name] is wonderful - just perfect! A classic first name with a whimsical and fun middle, great flow, plus the options of the sweet nicknames [name]Pippa[/name], [name]Pippi[/name] or [name]Pip[/name].
[name]Tallulah[/name] [name]Maeve[/name] also has great flow, and I love [name]Maeve[/name]; I feel like it grounds the frilly [name]Tallulah[/name] somewhat.
I think [name]Scout[/name] is really sweet, but [name]Tatum[/name] [name]Scout[/name] seems much too masculine to me compared with your other choices; personally, I would break the names up.
It bothers me slightly that [name]Danica[/name] is so similar to your name, and there’s nothing wrong with [name]Gretchen[/name] [name]Kristina[/name] at all, I just don’t think it’s as beautiful as your other choices (besides, unfortunately I am reminded of [name]Gretchen[/name] from Mean Girls). You might also like [name]Ingrid[/name].
[name]Cassandra[/name] is a lovely name, feminine and beautiful. [name]Eunice[/name] isn’t my favourite name at all, but in principal there is nothing wrong with it. I feel like something more fun in the middle would lend the combination pizazz, though - if you like [name]Cassandra[/name], too (or maybe [name]Cassia[/name]?) then how about [name]Cassandra[/name] [name]Wren[/name]?
[name]Adria[/name] [name]Maxine[/name] just feels very bland to me; only my personally opinion. You both might like [name]Ariadne[/name] as an alternative.
[name]Laela[/name] [name]Faye[/name] is very sing-song, in a positive, pretty way. Something to beware of is the boom in popularity of double-L names, meaning that all spellings of [name]Layla[/name] are zooming up the charts. The sweet French name [name]Lilou[/name] ([name]LEE[/name]-loo) doesn’t seem to have made the journey to English-speaking countries yet, though, and could be a good alternative, as well as a possible cute nickname for [name]Louise[/name]/a.
[name]Maisie[/name] is pretty popular here in the UK, and I personally find it a little too cute to easily envision it on an adult, but it is sweet. I feel like there is some compromise that could be reached regarding [name]Maeve[/name] and [name]Maisie[/name] … maybe [name]Maeve[/name] could be nicknamed [name]Maisie[/name] within the family, just as a cute little pet name? [name]Louisa[/name] is a gorgeous name.
The joint like of [name]Sloane[/name] is good. When I first read it I really didn’t like the name [name]Darla[/name], but you’ve got me dreaming up romantic Southern images and I’m actually starting to like it as a middle. You might also like [name]Orla[/name], [name]Zelda[/name] and [name]Elsa[/name] (nn [name]Elsie[/name]).
As for your mum’s choices, I personally find [name]Ashlyn[/name] and [name]Kameron[/name] a bit trendy, and I don’t think they would date well. [name]Willow[/name] isn’t my favourite name (it feels almost insubstantial to me), but there’s nothing wrong with it. [name]Phoebe[/name] and [name]Isla[/name] are popular but lovely, and would make great middle names, or firsts if you aren’t concerned about popularity. [name]Isla[/name] reminds me of [name]Freya[/name], but if you are in the UK then that also is very popular here. Lots of lovely names end with the same -ee sound as [name]Phoebe[/name] - [name]Daphne[/name] and [name]Penelope[/name], to name just two.
[name]Jasper[/name], [name]Henry[/name] and [name]Charles[/name] are all so handsome, and great either in the middle or in first place (they are quite popular in the UK, so my personal preference is in the middle).
[name]Arlo[/name] and [name]Theo[/name] are also very handsome - my favourite is [name]Arlo[/name], for no particular reason. You might like [name]Otto[/name], [name]Cosmo[/name], [name]Leo[/name], [name]Ivo[/name], [name]Elio[/name], [name]Hugo[/name] and [name]Enzo[/name], and [name]Margot[/name] or [name]Cleo[/name] for a girl.
[name]Quinn[/name] feels trendy and I’m not sure how well it would date, but I do think it is handsome. Currently associated with a female character on Glee, which may or may not bother you. The same also goes for [name]Bryce[/name], [name]Grayson[/name] and [name]Isaak[/name].
[name]William[/name], [name]Michael[/name] and [name]Martin[/name] are solid classics, and great in the middle. Neither [name]Eamon[/name] nor [name]Gordon[/name] are my favourites, but they aren’t bad names, they just don’t sound handsome to me.
[name]Troy[/name], [name]Phoenix[/name] and [name]River[/name] all feel a bit off to me - almost tacky. Sorry!
[name]Seth[/name] [name]Leonard[/name] is a great combination, both very handsome names, although I do think that the flow could be improved.
[name]Wesley[/name] feels a little nerdy to me, just a personal association, and I do like it in theory.
[name]Silas[/name] is handsome, as is [name]Jett[/name]. You might like [name]James[/name] nn [name]Jem[/name], too, although I’d avoid both of those if [name]Jessica[/name] goes by [name]Jess[/name].
I can’t quite put my finger on what is bothering me about [name]Donovan[/name].
Which names, either of my suggestions or of your original choices, do you both like? Any? I see some crossover in style and several names which could be compromised on …
Good luck! [name]Auburn[/name]
