My [name]Favorite[/name] of the boy names from your list:
[name]Declan[/name]: I think is becoming more popular, I like it though.
[name]Lincoln[/name]: I’m obsessed with the president with this name so of course I love this one.
[name]Ryker[/name]: Although it reminds me a little of star trek (Lieutenant [name]William[/name] Riker) I like it. Its a strong name.
[name]Zane[/name]: This is one of my favorites and was one of our top pics.

As for the girls I like:


[name]Beckett[/name] “[name]Beck[/name]” - I really like this.
[name]Braxton[/name] “Brax” - NMS. I honestly don’t like it at all.
[name]Calix[/name] - Same as [name]Braxton[/name].
[name]Carver[/name] - Same.
[name]Cormac[/name] “[name]Mac[/name]” - This isn’t something I would consider using, but I don’t mind it and I am a fan of the NN.
[name]Declan[/name] - I really like this one!
[name]Kayson[/name] “[name]Kay[/name]” - I have mixed feelings on the name itself, but the NN is just way too girly for me to take seriously.
[name]Kyson[/name] “[name]Ky[/name]” - I like this a lot less than [name]Kayson[/name], and [name]Ky[/name] is also a very girly NN.
[name]Lincoln[/name] “[name]Linc[/name]” - [name]LOVE[/name]. I kind of have a thing for presidential names and I especially adore [name]Lincoln[/name]. [name]Linc[/name] is wonderful!
[name]Porter[/name] - This is something different for me, but I really like this one!
[name]Ryker[/name] “[name]Ry[/name]” - NMS, but I don’t dislike it.
[name]Slater[/name] “[name]Slate[/name]” - [name]Way[/name] too Saved by the [name]Bell[/name] for me.
[name]Vaughn[/name] - I don’t mind it as a MN, but definitely NMS for a FN.
[name]Wilder[/name] - I love the sound, but I think you would get a lot of comments on it… “He really is wilder” or something along those lines.
[name]Zane[/name] - I like it, but don’t love it.


[name]Avery[/name] - I know many people say it’s too masculine, but I love this on a girl!
[name]Blake[/name] - NMS
[name]Bryn[/name] - NMS
[name]Bryony[/name] “Bry” - NMS, I don’t like this at all; I have a really hard time saying it.
[name]Finley[/name] “[name]Fin[/name]” - I actually really like this for a girl, but she would definitely be sharing a name with a lot of boys.
[name]Harlow[/name] - I really like this.
[name]Hayden[/name] - Not a fan.
[name]Keira[/name] - I like this a lot!
[name]Kendall[/name] - I despise this name…I think it has a lot to do with the people I know with the name though.
[name]Kennedy[/name] - Like. Not as high up as [name]Lincoln[/name] on my presidential faces, but I’m definitely a fan of it.
[name]Kinley[/name] “Kin” - I like this.
[name]Mckenna[/name] “[name]Mac[/name]” - NMS. I don’t really like “Mc” FNs.
[name]Reagan[/name] - I like this, but much prefer other unisex names.
[name]Sage[/name] - NMS
[name]Sydney[/name] - I like this.
[name]Zoe[/name] - I like it, but wouldn’t use it.

Favorites: [name]Lincoln[/name] and [name]Porter[/name]. [name]Avery[/name] and [name]Harlow[/name].

thanks! my favourites of my faves (i need to update my signature lol) are [name]Cormac[/name], [name]Lincoln[/name] and [name]Porter[/name] for boys, and [name]Harlow[/name], [name]Finley[/name], [name]Kinley[/name] (obviously wouldn’t use them both) and [name]Avery[/name]. Im not sure why, but recently I’ve fallen in love with [name]Cormac[/name], its really grown on me!

I like all your “K” girls names. Very cute :).

Here goes :slight_smile:

[name]Beckett[/name] “[name]Beck[/name]” - I like nn [name]Beck[/name], I fine [name]Beckett[/name] to be very harsh sounding.
[name]Braxton[/name] “Brax” - [name]Don[/name]'t like - what about [name]Paxton[/name]?
[name]Calix[/name] - [name]Don[/name]'t like, for some reason I think cat name.
[name]Carver[/name] - don’t like.
[name]Cormac[/name] “[name]Mac[/name]” - I REALLY like [name]Cormac[/name], so underused…great sounding name i think.
[name]Declan[/name] - I really like [name]Declan[/name] too, potential teasing/bullying issues steered me away from this name.
[name]Kayson[/name] “[name]Kay[/name]” - don’t like at all.
[name]Kyson[/name] “[name]Ky[/name]” - same as above. They both sound too made up in my opinion…
[name]Lincoln[/name] “[name]Linc[/name]” - I like this a lot, great nn too.
[name]Porter[/name] - I kind of like this, but this is a word for 2 many things/people.
[name]Ryker[/name] “[name]Ry[/name]” - sounds harsh to me.
[name]Slater[/name] “[name]Slate[/name]” - same as above. [name]Both[/name] are just not my style.
[name]Vaughn[/name] - it’s ok.
[name]Wilder[/name] - interesting name…not sure how I feel about it, but it’s fun.
[name]Zane[/name] - I really like this one…short and spunky!


[name]Avery[/name] - I don’t even have to look at the rest, this is my daughter’s name, so obviously my favourite :wink:
[name]Blake[/name] - I think I prefer this for a boy.
[name]Bryn[/name] - I really like this one…have you thought about [name]Quinn[/name]?
[name]Bryony[/name] “Bry” - not sure.
[name]Finley[/name] “[name]Fin[/name]” - [name]Love[/name] this name, prefer it on a boy though, but it would be cute on a girl too.
[name]Harlow[/name] - This is very cute, I really like this one! I think I like the Harlowe spelling better for a girl.
[name]Hayden[/name] - prefer on a boy.
[name]Keira[/name] - seems very different from your other choices that I have commented on so far…kind of boring for me.
[name]Kendall[/name] - I really like this one, seems very underused, great name.
[name]Kennedy[/name] - don’t like.
[name]Kinley[/name] “Kin” - don’t like at all, sounds made up.
[name]Mckenna[/name] “[name]Mac[/name]” - nope.
[name]Reagan[/name] - this is cute, reminds me of the comedy Up All [name]Night[/name], which I love…cool name for a girl.
[name]Sage[/name] - [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Sage[/name]! Such a great name - love it for both boys and girls.
[name]Sydney[/name] - My partner’s favourite name…my cousin had a dog named [name]Sydney[/name] so we couldn’t use it, it may be kind of dated, but I still really like it.
[name]Zoe[/name] - Very cute…incredibly popular where I come from though…every other girl it seems is [name]Zoe[/name]!

You have some amazing names in both your lists…not sure how you will narrow them down :slight_smile:

[name]Beckett[/name]: Bucket.
[name]Braxton[/name]: Hicks?
[name]Calix[/name]: Really like this.
[name]Carver[/name]: As in, “one who carves”? What a weirdly violent name to give a kid…
[name]Cormac[/name]: Like!
[name]Declan[/name]: The best on your boys’ list, IMHO.
[name]Kayson[/name]: [name]Truly[/name] awful.
[name]Kyson[/name]: [name]Even[/name] worse.
[name]Lincoln[/name]: NMS at all.
[name]Porter[/name]: As in, the guy who carries your bags at a hotel?
[name]Ryker[/name]: This one grates on my nerves because it’s insanely trendy and trying too hard at the same time.
[name]Slater[/name]: Not bad.
[name]Vaughn[/name]: Very handsome!
[name]Wilder[/name]: This is an adjective. I don’t get it.
[name]Zane[/name]: A classic with a thoroughly modern sound. I like it.


[name]Avery[/name]: Boring, trendy, but fine.
[name]Blake[/name]: Fine on a boy, unforgivable on a girl.
[name]Bryn[/name]: I think you’re missing an ‘n’. Otherwise, this is quite cute.
[name]Bryony[/name]: [name]Ah[/name], I love [name]Bryony[/name]. Gorgeous.
[name]Finley[/name]: This is a boy’s name. Let’s keep it that way.
[name]Harlow[/name]: Trendy, and has a very harsh sound to me.
[name]Hayden[/name]: [name]Aiden[/name] with an ‘H’ slapped on. She’ll rhyme with 90% of her class.
[name]Keira[/name]: Kind of dated, but I actually quite like it:
[name]Kendall[/name]: Meh. There are so many more interesting names in the world.
[name]Kennedy[/name]: [name]Kennedy[/name] AND [name]Lincoln[/name]? No and no.
[name]Kinley[/name]: I truly hate this name. Two trendy syllables slapped together.
[name]Mckenna[/name]: The next [name]Makenzie[/name].
[name]Reagan[/name]: Another presidential appellation! NMS.
[name]Sage[/name]: Beautiful, elegant, timeless.
[name]Sydney[/name]: Very cute!
[name]Zoe[/name]: It’s fine, but you have better names on this list.

My advice would always be to stick to names that are interesting, sophisticated, and timeless. Trendy names date fast. Names like [name]Declan[/name], [name]Vaughn[/name], [name]Zane[/name], [name]Brynn[/name], [name]Bryony[/name], and [name]Sage[/name] (my favorites on your list) are standouts: they have substance and class, and they’re offbeat without being weird. Those are your winners. The rest…not so much.

I love [name]Beckett[/name], [name]Lincoln[/name], [name]Porter[/name], [name]Slater[/name] & [name]Vaughn[/name] from your boy list!
And I love [name]Avery[/name], [name]Blake[/name], [name]Bryn[/name], [name]Finley[/name],[name]Harlow[/name], [name]Kennedy[/name], & [name]Reagan[/name] from your girl list!

[name]Cormac[/name] and [name]Beckett[/name] are my favorites for boys. [name]Keira[/name] is my favorite for girls. Good luck!
