What do you think of my top ten names for both genders?

Okay, well I was just wondering what you guys think. Nameberry has definately changed my stance on a lot of names - and given me new names to ponder. So for now, these are my favourites! By the way; I am not pregnant. [name]Just[/name] name addicted!

[name]Lilyana[/name]/[name]Liliana[/name] - nn. [name]Lily[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] - nn. [name]Millie[/name]
[name]Rosalie[/name] - nn. [name]Rose[/name]
[name]Luciana[/name]/[name]Lucia[/name] - nn. [name]Lulu[/name]/[name]Luci[/name]
[name]Evangelia[/name]/[name]Evangelina[/name] - nn. [name]Evie[/name]/[name]Eva[/name]
[name]Anastasia[/name] - nn. [name]Anna[/name]

[name]Theodore[/name] - nn. [name]Theo[/name]

[name]Lilyana[/name]/[name]Liliana[/name] - nn. [name]Lily[/name]: I personally am not a [name]Lily[/name] fan. I prefer [name]Liliana[/name] to [name]Lilyana[/name].
[name]Matilda[/name] - nn. [name]Millie[/name] - I know I’m in the minority, at least among Nameberryites, but I don’t like [name]Matilda[/name] at all. [name]Millie[/name] is cute, though.
[name]Rosalie[/name] - nn. [name]Rose[/name] - I like it a lot.
[name]Arabella[/name] - Again, I’m in the minority on this site, but I’m not a fan of [name]Arabella[/name].

[name]Grace[/name] - It’s ok.
[name]Evangelia[/name]/[name]Evangelina[/name] - nn. [name]Evie[/name]/[name]Eva[/name] - I like [name]Eva[/name].

[name]Lilah[/name]/[name]Lila[/name] - I like it.
[name]Anastasia[/name] - nn. [name]Anna[/name] - Pretty, just nms.

[name]Theodore[/name] - nn. [name]Theo[/name] - I really like [name]Theodore[/name] but much prefer [name]Ted[/name]/[name]Teddy[/name].

[name]Matilda[/name] - this one is on my list, too, with the nn [name]Tilly[/name].
[name]Rosalie[/name] - lovely, but watch out for the Twilight phenomenon. Personally, I prefer [name]Rosanna[/name], [name]Rosamund[/name] or [name]Ambrosia[/name] (I have one of the latter :slight_smile: ).
[name]Arabella[/name] - I live in [name]England[/name] and attended a fee-paying school, so this one is all spoilt pony club girl for me, but if I take a step back, it is pretty.
[name]Luciana[/name]/[name]Lucia[/name] - not my favourite.
[name]Grace[/name] - sweet.
[name]Evangelia[/name]/[name]Evangelina[/name] - [name]Evangelina[/name] is my preferred one.
[name]Isabelle[/name] - beautiful, but very popular at the moment. I prefer the [name]Isabel[/name] spelling, personally.
[name]Lilah[/name]/[name]Lila[/name] - lovely. Simply [name]Lily[/name] is good, too, in my opinion.
[name]Anastasia[/name] - beautiful and quirky.

[name]Linden[/name] - not my favourite.
[name]Leo[/name]/[name]Leonardo[/name] - I love [name]Leo[/name], but I prefer [name]Leopold[/name].
[name]Calvin[/name] - I prefer [name]Caspar[/name] or [name]Caspian[/name], personally.
[name]Theodore[/name] - I adore this! Couldn’t use it (nn [name]Teddy[/name]) for theme-related reasons, so it is one of my [name]Jasper[/name]'s mns :slight_smile:
[name]Kai[/name] - I adore. Very short, but handsome.
[name]Tristan[/name] - again, I adore, as well as his female counterpart [name]Isolde[/name]-[name]Iseult[/name].
[name]Oliver[/name] - handsome and classic.
[name]Everly[/name] - unfortunately, this now sounds a little feminine to me.

I think your list is great overall!

[name]Lilyana[/name]/[name]Liliana[/name] - nn. [name]Lily[/name]: I much prefer [name]Liliana[/name]. This with [name]Anastasia[/name] might be too much ‘[name]Ana[/name]’ for sisters, just a thought.
[name]Matilda[/name] - nn. [name]Millie[/name]: I like [name]Matilda[/name], but dislike nn [name]Millie[/name].
[name]Rosalie[/name] - nn. [name]Rose[/name]: [name]Love[/name] the name, love the nn, but this would be VERY “flowery” with [name]Liliana[/name].
[name]Arabella[/name]: [name]LOVE[/name] it. [name]Love[/name] it love it love it!
[name]Luciana[/name]/[name]Lucia[/name] - nn. [name]Lulu[/name]/[name]Luci[/name]: Much too close to [name]Liliana[/name] in my opinion, although [name]Lily[/name] and [name]Lucy[/name] would make nice siblings.
[name]Grace[/name]: This is far too popular for me.
[name]Evangelia[/name]/[name]Evangelina[/name] - nn. [name]Evie[/name]/[name]Eva[/name]: I prefer [name]Evangeline[/name], but it is a very sweet, serene sounding name.
[name]Isabelle[/name]: Again, far too popular for my taste.
[name]Lilah[/name]/[name]Lila[/name]: Pretty, I prefer the [name]Lilah[/name] spelling, as [name]Lila[/name] seems incomplete to me.
[name]Anastasia[/name] - nn. [name]Anna[/name]: Classic, very pretty, but might be too much with [name]Luciana[/name]/[name]Liliana[/name].

[name]Linden[/name]: I prefer the [name]Lyndon[/name] spelling.
[name]Leo[/name]/[name]Leonardo[/name]: [name]Leo[/name] is perfect, very handsome. [name]Leonardo[/name] seems out of place with your other choices; perhaps just [name]Leon[/name]?
[name]Calvin[/name]: Handsome, I love the nn [name]Cal[/name].
[name]Theodore[/name] - nn. [name]Theo[/name]: I love the nn [name]Theo[/name] but dislike full name [name]Theodore[/name], I find it clunky and dated, sorry. :confused:
[name]Kai[/name]: Handsome, but clipped. I prefer it as a nn to [name]Malachi[/name]/[name]Mordecai[/name].
[name]Tristan[/name]: Very trendy, but also very handsome.
[name]Oliver[/name]: [name]Love[/name] it, especially with nn [name]Ollie[/name].
[name]Everly[/name]: This ending feminizes it, to me. [name]Everett[/name]/[name]Everest[/name]?
[name]Maximus[/name]: I immediately think “Gluteus”, sorry. [name]Maxim[/name]/[name]Maksim[/name]?
[name]Benjamin[/name]: Classic and handsome, I prefer it with nn [name]Benji[/name].
