[name_f]Chloe[/name_f] - I love [name_f]Chloe[/name_f]! It’s super sweet, and I haven’t met a whole lot of Chloes, if I’m honest. I think it’s lovely.
[name_u]Sasha[/name_u] - Not my favourite, I do really want to like it, as it sort of fits my style, but I’ve never quite warmed to it. I much prefer [name_f]Saskia[/name_f].
[name_f]Maisie[/name_f] - LOVE [name_f]Maisie[/name_f]!! It’s on our list if S/O and I have a girl one day :slight_smile:
[name_f]Tabitha[/name_f] - I do like [name_f]Tabitha[/name_f], but it’s not my favourite. I just don’t like the nn [name_f]Tabby[/name_f] very much? I had a friend in high school with the name though, and she wore it quite well though! It’s in that sweet spot of uncommon but familiar.
[name_f]Stella[/name_f] - [name_f]Stella[/name_f] is lovely! I think it’s so nice. I don’t know that I’d use it, but I love meeting one. I know of two and both are just so sweet.
[name_f]Eleni[/name_f] - I want to like [name_f]Eleni[/name_f], but it’s just never quite appealed to me. I think it could be because at one time I saw it an awful lot on Nameberry, and I just sort of grew tired of it.
[name_f]Taya[/name_f] - I love [name_f]Taya[/name_f]. It’s lovely, and I’ve only met one in my life. I’m not too keen on the meaning though, because I’ve read that it means “favourite” - would be a bit awkward, I feel like to any other children you may have if they found that meaning out and questioned it?
[name_f]Emmalyn[/name_f] - Hmm, not a big fan of this one, I prefer [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f].
[name_u]Blair[/name_u] - I like [name_u]Blair[/name_u], but I do prefer the [name_u]Blaire[/name_u] spelling. [name_u]Blair[/name_u] just looks incomplete to me.
[name_u]Halston[/name_u] - this one just feels really awkward to say to me. It might be my accent though?
[name_f]Malia[/name_f] - Sweet! I like [name_f]Malia[/name_f] quite a bit! The Obamas made it feel a bit more accessible imo.
[name_u]Marlowe[/name_u] - I’m not a huge fan of this spelling of [name_u]Marlowe[/name_u], I prefer [name_u]Marlow[/name_u], but I do actually prefer [name_u]Harlow[/name_u] over all!
[name_f]Tess[/name_f] - I love [name_f]Tess[/name_f], it’s beautiful. [name_f]My[/name_f] niece gets called this often as a nickname, and I love it.
[name_u]Saylor[/name_u] - I do love [name_u]Saylor[/name_u], but I sort of wonder if [name_u]Sailor[/name_u] would be easier in terms of spelling?

I’m obsessed with [name_f]Eleni[/name_f] and this is my number one girl’s name right now. [name_m]Just[/name_m] out of curiosity, what would you use for a middle name if you chose [name_f]Eleni[/name_f]?

Okay!

Here are my thoughts-

[name_f]Chloe[/name_f]-I like it. It’s apparently popular, although I rarely hear it in real life. It has a sweet little [name_u]French[/name_u] girl feel.

[name_u]Sasha[/name_u]-I don’t hate it, but it’s not my favorite. Not sure why. I kind of feel like it’s too feminine for a boy & too masculine for a girl.

[name_f]Maisie[/name_f]-[name_u]Love[/name_u] it! It’s a great balance of sweet old fashioned charm & spunk. I prefer it as a nn though. I think that it works well for [name_f]Madeline[/name_f], [name_f]Maureen[/name_f], [name_f]Margaret[/name_f] or [name_f]Mary[/name_f].

[name_f]Tabitha[/name_f]-This name is just really fun. It’s kind of cool & unexpected. Has a lot of character. And the nn [name_f]Tabby[/name_f] is cute.

[name_f]Stella[/name_f]-[name_u]Love[/name_u] it! Elegant, vintage, & sassy. A bit popular, but on my long list despite that.

[name_f]Eleni[/name_f]-This is really pretty. It has flow, & I like the slight pixie feeling.

[name_f]Taya[/name_f]-Hm. Not loving this one. The spelling doesn’t look that attractive. And it’s just a little bland.

[name_f]Emmalyn[/name_f]-Seems trendy & smoosh name-y. I think that [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] has a pretty sound. [name_m]Just[/name_m] [name_f]Emma[/name_f] is good.

[name_u]Blair[/name_u]-This isn’t awful. It’s a little meh though. Kind of reminds me of a snobby girl for some reason.

[name_u]Halston[/name_u]-That doesn’t sound nice on a girl at all. Or a boy either. [name_m]Just[/name_m] not a very pleasant sound to me.

[name_u]Marlowe[/name_u]-Meh, I don’t know. Seems a tad trendy. Not my style.

[name_f]Tess[/name_f]-Cute! It’s sweet, smart, sporty & old fashioned. Simple but not over done. Great choice. I do prefer it as a nn though for [name_f]Tessa[/name_f], [name_f]Esther[/name_f] or [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f].

[name_u]Saylor[/name_u]-I don’t know. It doesn’t sound that nice to me.

[name_f]Hope[/name_f] this helps. :slight_smile:

Eleni is such a cool name! I came across it recently and thought it was so pretty! I think a long super feminine name pairs well with [name_f]Eleni[/name_f] like…
[name_f]Eleni[/name_f] [name_f]Valentina[/name_f]
[name_f]Eleni[/name_f] [name_f]Sophia[/name_f]
[name_f]Eleni[/name_f] [name_f]Madeline[/name_f]
[name_f]Eleni[/name_f] [name_f]Marguerite[/name_f]

I recently saw [name_f]Tess[/name_f] as a nickname for [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] and thought that it was adorable!

My favorite name from your list is [name_f]Stella[/name_f]- it’s one of my all-time favorites. It’s beautiful and makes me imagine a gorgeous night sky with millions of stars. I also like how I can see this name suiting a girl of any age.

Chloe - [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] sounds like a name that seems quite popular, but I can’t think of a single person I’ve met with this name. It’s very pretty and sweet, and reminds me of the lovely and talented [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] Lukasiak from Dance Moms.
[name_u]Sasha[/name_u]- It’s spunky and sassy, but not one of my favorite names.
[name_f]Maisie[/name_f]- [name_f]Maisie[/name_f] is very cute, but seems a bit too cutesy to me.
[name_f]Tabitha[/name_f]- It reminds me of cats and witches (not sure why). I’m not a fan of it.
[name_f]Eleni[/name_f]- I really like [name_f]Eleni[/name_f], it’s like a unique variation of [name_f]Elena[/name_f] which feels familiar but surprisingly pretty at the same time. I think it’s gorgeous!
[name_f]Taya[/name_f]- Not my style. I prefer [name_u]Kaya[/name_u]/Kaia or [name_f]Maya[/name_f].
[name_f]Emmalyn[/name_f]- I like [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] (with the -leen pronunciation) better, as I generally tend to dislike the trendy -lyn spelling. Still a cute name though.
[name_u]Blair[/name_u]- I like [name_u]Blair[/name_u]! Reminds me of [name_u]Blair[/name_u] Waldorf. It has a little more spunk to it than [name_f]Claire[/name_f] and I think it’s cute.
[name_u]Halston[/name_u]- Not a fan.
[name_f]Malia[/name_f]- Not my style.
[name_u]Marlowe[/name_u]- I think it’s a cute, but seems “trendy” and could perhaps sound dated in the future. I also for some reason think it’s better suited on a puppy.
[name_f]Tess[/name_f]- I like [name_f]Tessa[/name_f] better than [name_f]Tess[/name_f], but it’s a nice vintage name.
[name_u]Saylor[/name_u]- I used to like this name, but I think it seems a bit trendy.

I like [name_f]Maisie[/name_f], [name_u]Marlowe[/name_u] and [name_u]Saylor[/name_u].
[name_f]Maisie[/name_f]—I prefer the s sound to the z pronunciation. I call my dog Masie since I didn’t like the look of the c in this name.
[name_u]Marlowe[/name_u]–has a cool and somewhat studious vibe
[name_u]Saylor[/name_u]—love it, but I prefer [name_u]Sailor[/name_u] for the obvious nautical vibe

I love [name_f]Taya[/name_f] and [name_f]Stella[/name_f] although I wouldn’t necessarily use them together.

Love:
[name_f]Taya[/name_f]

Like and intrigued:
[name_u]Saylor[/name_u] - I keep going back and forth on this one with it being a word name, but I just love the sound.
[name_u]Halston[/name_u] - I don’t think I’ve seen this around before, but I like it! I think after meeting a little girl who went by [name_m]Hal[/name_m], it’s eased me into the idea. And, of course, I love [name_f]Hallie[/name_f] as a potential nickname. I think this is strong and full of potential.
[name_u]Blair[/name_u]

I don’t particularly dislike any of the others, I mostly don’t quite… care? But they’re all fine names. If you
re trying to narrow them down, I always put great meanings above not as amazing ones.

Chloe - I don’t have the best association with this name–I knew one growing up who I did not get along with–but I’ve grown to appreciate it as a middle. I really love the idea of something like [name_f]Aviva[/name_f] [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] or [name_f]Adeliza[/name_f] [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] or [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] [name_f]Chloe[/name_f]?
[name_u]Sasha[/name_u] - eh. Sorry. I actually LOVE [name_m]Alexander[/name_m] nn [name_u]Sasha[/name_u] for a boy, but never got the appeal on a girl? It was also my first dog’s name, and she was a girl, so maybe in some way that has something to do with it. It feels fresh on a boy, to me, but a little tired on a girl. Maybe it’s a combination of all of those?
[name_f]Maisie[/name_f] - I’ve never seen the appeal, sorry. I usually prefer feminine nns, and it seems like I would love it since [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] and [name_f]Lottie[/name_f] are such huge favorites of mine, but I like the surnamey [name_f]Macy[/name_f] much more than [name_f]Maisie[/name_f].
[name_f]Tabitha[/name_f] - I’m not a huge fan, but it is definitely an unexpected Biblical choice! I think I would prefer [name_f]Talitha[/name_f] or even just [name_u]Tali[/name_u]/Talia, but when I stop to truly think about [name_f]Tabitha[/name_f] I realize that she really is wonderful. I’ve just always liked other Hebrew/Biblical names more.
[name_f]Stella[/name_f] - It’s never been my cup of tea, but it’s a timeless, lovely name, objectively! I love astronomy, so I love its meaning. I like just [name_f]Ella[/name_f] more than [name_f]Stella[/name_f], personally, though.
[name_f]Eleni[/name_f] - I LOVE [name_f]Eleni[/name_f]. She’s on my top 10, and one of my favorite girls’ names ever. I love the nn [name_f]Leni[/name_f].
[name_f]Taya[/name_f] - [name_f]Do[/name_f] you say TIE-ah or TAY-ah? I’m not a huge fan but I can see why it would be appealing.
[name_f]Emmalyn[/name_f] - not bad, although I like [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] better myself.
[name_u]Blair[/name_u] - sounds fresh and charming, but I like [name_f]Claire[/name_f] better myself.
[name_u]Halston[/name_u] - I’m not familiar with it, but it sounds a bit too masculine for me.
[name_f]Malia[/name_f] - I’ve always found [name_f]Malia[/name_f] to be charming, ever since I first heard it on the [name_m]Obama[/name_m]’s daughter. I’m not sure I’d use it but I love it a lot.
[name_u]Marlowe[/name_u] - intriguing, but I am not sure I would use it myself.
[name_f]Tess[/name_f] - LOVE [name_f]Tess[/name_f], although I like [name_f]Tessa[/name_f] a little more.
[name_u]Saylor[/name_u] - intriguing, but I’ve never “gotten” the [name_u]Saylor[/name_u] spelling. I prefer the straightforward [name_u]Sailor[/name_u] myself, and even then, I love it on a boy.

Eleni, [name_f]Chloe[/name_f], [name_f]Malia[/name_f], [name_f]Tess[/name_f], and [name_f]Tabitha[/name_f] are my favorites?

Good luck!

Chloe - This regesters for me as a teeny-bopper name, even though I know it’s not.
Sasha - Male, Russian, soft-sounding
Maisie - Very sunshiney and bright, but also in my mind a close sister to [name_f]Bessie[/name_f] the cow.
Tabitha - Bewitched!
Stella - I think this name is really pretty, and it’s a shame that so many people name their dogs [name_f]Stella[/name_f]! I prefer it as a nickname to [name_f]Estelle[/name_f]/Estella. It’s so pretty and refined.
Eleni - I’m not usually sure how this one is meant to be pronounced.
Taya - I’ve never heard this name before.
Emmalyn - Strikes me as very trendy.
Blair - I always think [name_u]Blair[/name_u] Witch
Halston - I’ve never heard of this name, but it sounds trendy.
Malia - I much prefer [name_f]Amalia[/name_f], which sounds more full and compete.
Marlowe - I like this name, even though it’s really trendy, but I’d never actually use it myself. I think it would make a great double name with something in front of it.
Tess - Short, sweet, and to the point! I have a soft spot for [name_f]Tess[/name_f], and I can’t even tell you why! I don’t even know.
Saylor - I see [name_u]Saylor[/name_u] as a misspelled [name_u]Sailor[/name_u], and it’s not a profession name that I’d use.
