    I figured with the new site (and hopefully the fresh meat!) it would be interesting to see all of our favorite names! Both genders. Share middle names if you wish. I’ll share my own list below. :)

    I’ve got loads. Most of which I’ve just noticed are actually very similar. I wish I could use them all :(
    Girls:
    First Names-
    Pandora
    Aurora
    Endora
    Jessamine (basically a less common variation on Jasmine)
    Ayeola
    Accalia
    Cassiopeia (Cass-o-pee-a) (Would be good along with Caspian for twin b/g)
    Penha- Two syllables, but means loved, which is such a perfect meaning. (It’s also unisex, but sounds more like a girl’s name to me)
    Middle Names- (Basically any name with two syllables or less, I think they’re a bit short for fns)
    Nyla (My mum told a friend she’d name me this after them but my dad named me instead in the end)
    Lyra (As in the character in the Phillip Pullman books)
    I also think the previous two would be good for twin girls.
    Jana
    Breanne (After one of my fave singers)
    Enfys (En-vis (means rainbow in Welsh))
    Isabella-Donna I know belladonna’s a poison, but it also translates into ‘beautiful lady’ which is good enough esp. as it’s for mn and Isabella is the closest I’m going to get to a more common name.

    Boys (not so good at coming up with these but I’m more sure about which ones to choose)
    First Names-
    Caspian (As in the prince :))
    Phoenix (Not the city, as in the mythical bird)
    Possibly:
    Edmund (book character)
    Philon
    Xanthias (Zan-thee-as)
    Santiago (SJA character)
    Gideon
    Fabian (book character)
    Middle Names:
    Dorian (book character, not a very nice one but still)
    Lucian (Loo-Shan)
    Cyril (Although my mum thinks it’s too old fashioned)(book character)
    Sylas
    Orion

    So far my fave combos are (although they have two mns):
    Girls:
    Pandora Isabella- Donna
    Jessamine Nyla Aurora
    Penha Lyra Jana
    Boys:
    Caspian Dorian Edmund
    Phoenix Sylas Fabian/ Gideon
    Xanthias Santiago Cyril (bit of a mouthful but I think it kind of flows)
    I like reading btw if you haven’t noticed. And sorry I rambled a bit (lot). :*
