The *New* List

After a long discussion and some reflection, we’ve decided to switch paths for our girls names and go more alongside the style my S/O likes, since it is a style I’ve considered previously, and it’s one I do still like. I’d rather choose a name we both like rather than one that I like and he tolerates, hence the switch.

His style is much more classics and British favourites, as I’d call them? The UK top 1000 is much more his style than the US top 1000, so I opted to look there for inspiration this go around, and have found quite a few ideas for us, but would love some help shortening up the list and/or deciding on a few favourites before presenting the list to S/O in its entirety because it is pretty long. Names already S/O approved will be in bold!

Also, please, no comments regarding the old lists vs. this list - I still quite like the old names and I am fully aware that they’re not to a lot of people’s tastes and that most people will prefer this style to that one :sweat_smile:

Some notes:

  • we live in [name_f]Canada[/name_f], so most of these are on trend or are ones not heard too often here. The only name that may have issue where we are is [name_f]Aoife[/name_f].

  • MN(s) will be [name_u]June[/name_u] / [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u] depending on what name is chosen, after my grandmother and after [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] Newton-John, who I’ve always admired and who I was nearly named after (Olivia was my parents’ other final contender for me).

  • We prefer something either feminine and sweet with a modern twist or something currently on trend/trendy.

Sorry, these are lovely names but aren’t on my list as I can’t use a majority of them. I was asking for help narrowing my own list down, and was trying to describe my partner’s style when I said classic names and British favourites. My own list is in the little drop down as it’s quite long.

Thank you though.

[name_f]My[/name_f] Favorites from your list:
[name_f]Amelie[/name_f]
[name_f]Violet[/name_f]
[name_f]Esme[/name_f] - I would spell [name_f]Esmae[/name_f] with the pronunciation you’re aiming for
[name_f]Hannah[/name_f]
[name_f]Elsie[/name_f]
[name_f]Mila[/name_f]
[name_f]Gemma[/name_f]

I will say to narrow down it does seem like you are mostly drawn to names that have the “ie” endings sound (even if it doesn’t end in “ie”. I would see what your list looked like with only those names and possibly go from there.
