Which names would you use?

These are our final lists. We have some back-ups in case these don’t work but I was wondering what your opinions are. Thanks.

[name]Abram[/name] [name]Sebastien[/name]
[name]Elias[/name] [name]Oliver[/name]
[name]Jonah[/name] [name]Samuel[/name]
[name]Moses[/name] [name]Andrew[/name]
[name]Simon[/name] [name]Nicholas[/name]
[name]Tobias[/name] [name]Benjamin[/name]

[name]Annora[/name] [name]Vivienne[/name]
[name]Cecilia[/name] [name]Faith[/name]
[name]Evangeline[/name] [name]Anthea[/name]
[name]Johanna[/name] [name]Rosalie[/name]
[name]Seraphina[/name] [name]Ariel[/name]

It seems you and I have fairly similar tastes. Or at least, I like most of your names :D.

[name]Abram[/name] [name]Sebastien[/name] - I’ve really begun to love [name]Abram[/name] over [name]Abraham[/name]. I will say, though, that I would spell [name]Sebastian[/name] with an ‘a’ and not an ‘e’.
[name]Elias[/name] [name]Oliver[/name] - I really like this combination. [name]Elias[/name] is very handsome and [name]Eli[/name] is one of my favorite nn’s for a boy.
[name]Jonah[/name] [name]Samuel[/name] - [name]Jonah[/name] is one of my favorites. I like [name]Samuel[/name] with it.
[name]Moses[/name] [name]Andrew[/name] - I like [name]Moses[/name] alright. I find [name]Andrew[/name] to be a little boring with it though.
[name]Simon[/name] [name]Nicholas[/name] - I like both names separately, but I’m not sure about the fn ending in an ‘n’ and the mn beginning with an ‘n’.
[name]Tobias[/name] [name]Benjamin[/name] - [name]Love[/name] it. I really, really love it!

[name]Annora[/name] [name]Vivienne[/name] - [name]Annora[/name] is really growing on me. This is a lovely name.
[name]Cecilia[/name] [name]Faith[/name] - [name]Cecilia[/name] is one of my favorites! In fact, one of my potential combinations is [name]Cecilia[/name] [name]Faye[/name].
[name]Evangeline[/name] [name]Anthea[/name] - I think this is too much of a mouthful. I’m not crazy about [name]Anthea[/name], either. I’d prefer [name]Althea[/name].
[name]Johanna[/name] [name]Rosalie[/name] - This is another pretty combination. [name]Johanna[/name] is a bit more on the tomboy side and [name]Rosalie[/name] is a very feminine name, or at least I think so. It’s a nice balance.
[name]Seraphina[/name] [name]Ariel[/name] - Again, with the fn ending and the mn beginning in the same letter, the names kind of blur together. This one isn’t quite so bad, though. [name]Love[/name] [name]Ariel[/name]!

What a nice list! My favorite of your boys’ choices is a tie between [name]Abram[/name] [name]Sebastien[/name] and [name]Tobias[/name] [name]Benjamin[/name]. [name]Both[/name] are solid choices that I could see working well for a man of any age. Plus I love the nickname options of [name]Abe[/name], [name]Bram[/name], [name]Toby[/name], or [name]Tobin[/name] (To- from [name]Tobias[/name], -bin from [name]Benjamin[/name]?). I’m not big on [name]Elias[/name] or [name]Jonah[/name], and in my mind [name]Moses[/name] is still leading the Jews out of [name]Egypt[/name]. I love [name]Simon[/name] but don’t like it with [name]Nicholas[/name]. Probably because I don’t like any of the names from the [name]Nick[/name] family.

Your girls’ choices are a lot frillier than anything I would ever go for, but my favorite is [name]Annora[/name] [name]Vivienne[/name]. It has such a sophisticated and beautiful sound. [name]Annora[/name] is also the least frilliest of your girls’ names. [name]Cecilia[/name], [name]Evangeline[/name], and [name]Seraphina[/name] are beautiful names though. [name]Johanna[/name] I’m not fond of but [name]Rosalie[/name] is lovely!


I thinking about ditching [name]Sebastien[/name] for [name]Christopher[/name].

I really like frilly girl names with more tomboy sounding NN. [name]Annora[/name] = [name]Nora[/name] or [name]Annie[/name], [name]Cecilia[/name] = Cece, [name]Evangeline[/name] = [name]Evie[/name] or [name]Eve[/name], [name]Johanna[/name] = [name]Jo[/name] or [name]Annie[/name], [name]Seraphina[/name] = [name]Sera[/name].

What a wonderful list!

You’re boys are a little too biblical for me, but all very lovely. My favourite is [name]Abram[/name] [name]Sebastien[/name] (please don’t ditch [name]Sebastien[/name]… although I do prefer [name]Sebastian[/name]), with [name]Tobias[/name] [name]Benjamin[/name] and [name]Jonah[/name] [name]Samuel[/name] in second and third.

All of your girls are fabulous (the only two I dislike are [name]Faith[/name] and [name]Ariel[/name]). [name]Evangeline[/name] [name]Anthea[/name] is absolutely gorgeous, and would be my first choice from the list. I also [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Annora[/name] [name]Vivienne[/name]. [name]Cecilia[/name] is incredibly sweet, but [name]Faith[/name] seems tacky and such a filler. What about: [name]Cecilia[/name] [name]Evangeline[/name]? [name]Cecilia[/name] [name]Rosalie[/name]? [name]Cecilia[/name] [name]Aurora[/name]? [name]Cecilia[/name] [name]Primrose[/name]? [name]Cecilia[/name] [name]Imogen[/name]?

If you want something frilly with tomboy-ish nicknames, what about:
[name]Aurora[/name] - ‘[name]Rory[/name]’
[name]Caroline[/name] - ‘[name]Cora[/name]’
[name]Genevieve[/name] - ‘[name]Genny[/name]’ ‘[name]Ginny[/name]’ ‘[name]Vivie[/name]’ ‘[name]Evie[/name]’ ‘[name]Eva[/name]’ ‘Neeve’
[name]Bridgette[/name] - ‘[name]Birdie[/name]’ ‘[name]Etta[/name]’
[name]Katrina[/name] - ‘[name]Kitty[/name]’ ‘[name]Kit[/name]’ '[name]Nina[/name]
[name]Ramona[/name] - ‘[name]Mona[/name]’ ‘[name]Romy[/name]’ ‘[name]Nona[/name]’
[name]Felicity[/name] - ‘Fliss’ ‘Lissy’
[name]Violet[/name] - ‘[name]Etta[/name]’ ‘[name]Vi[/name]’
[name]Elizabeth[/name] - ‘[name]Lizzie[/name]’ ‘[name]Eliza[/name]’ ‘Zabby’
[name]Charlotte[/name] - ‘[name]Lottie[/name]’ ‘[name]Charlie[/name]’
[name]Estella[/name] - ‘[name]Stella[/name]’ ‘[name]Etta[/name]’

Oh, and [name]Delilah[/name] sprung to mind, too.

My other two boys are incredibly biblical as well so I wanted to stay with that trend.

I picked [name]Faith[/name] because of what it means. My husband and I are going through a rough time, not with each other just in general, and there’s nothing we can do but just have [name]Faith[/name] that it will work out.

All the girl names are paired up so that the name means something.

[name]Cecilia[/name] [name]Faith[/name] - Blind [name]Faith[/name]
[name]Annora[/name] [name]Vivienne[/name] - [name]Honor[/name] Life
[name]Evangeline[/name] [name]Anthea[/name] - Good news blossoms
[name]Seraphina[/name] [name]Ariel[/name] - Fiery lion of God
[name]Johanna[/name] [name]Rosalie[/name] - God’s gracious rose

I actually had [name]Delilah[/name] on our list for a while but [name]Sampson[/name] and [name]Delilah[/name] ruined it for me.

[name]Do[/name] you mind if I ask what your boys’ names are?

I really like how you’ve used the meanings to make the name something special. I’m definitely liking [name]Cecilia[/name] [name]Faith[/name] for you now. [name]Annora[/name] [name]Vivienne[/name] is still my favorite though.

[name]Isaiah[/name] Gaberiel
[name]Zachariah[/name] [name]Xavier[/name]

[name]Abram[/name] [name]Sebastien[/name] – [name]Abram[/name] is a bit nickname-y for me. I would go [name]Abraham[/name] nn [name]Abram[/name]. [name]Sebastien[/name] is cute, though! Although I do prefer the [name]Sebastian[/name] spelling.
[name]Elias[/name] [name]Oliver[/name] – Yes, I would use this! [name]Lovely[/name].
[name]Jonah[/name] [name]Samuel[/name] – I would use this, too! I love it.
[name]Moses[/name] [name]Andrew[/name] – I would use this, too.
[name]Simon[/name] [name]Nicholas[/name] – I would use this, too!
[name]Tobias[/name] [name]Benjamin[/name] – I wouldn’t use this. I don’t like [name]Tobias[/name]. It sounds overly clumsy and foolish to me. But I do love [name]Benjamin[/name]!

[name]Annora[/name] [name]Vivienne[/name] – I love [name]Vivienne[/name], but [name]Annora[/name] not so much. It just feels kind of forgettable and made-up to me. Why not just [name]Nora[/name]?
[name]Cecilia[/name] [name]Faith[/name] – I don’t like [name]Cecilia[/name]. I much prefer the softer [name]Cecily[/name]. But I adore [name]Faith[/name]!
[name]Evangeline[/name] [name]Anthea[/name] – I love [name]Evangeline[/name]; [name]Anthea[/name] sounds made-up though.
[name]Johanna[/name] [name]Rosalie[/name] – I like [name]Johanna[/name], only, spelled [name]Johannah[/name]. Otherwise, yes, I’d use it!
[name]Seraphina[/name] [name]Ariel[/name] :slight_smile: – Yes, I’d use this! So pretty.

[name]Hope[/name] that helps!

My favorites from your lists:
[name]Elias[/name] [name]Oliver[/name]

[name]Johanna[/name] [name]Rosalie[/name]
