    What are your top names, either for real life use or just fun?

    My current top 10s, without my boyfriend’s input, are:

    Lucinda
    Antonia
    Isidora
    Emmeline
    Mirabel
    Persephone
    Ziva
    Hazel
    Helena
    Edith

    Arthur
    Maximilian
    Stellan
    Frederick
    Dashiell
    Xavier
    Isaiah
    Elijah
    Noah
    Wyatt
    (Atticus may be added here in replace of either Isaiah or Elijah)

    Realistic choices with the boyfriend would be Antonia and Mina for girls, Max for a boy.

    cool names.
    Lucinda- i think this is a pretty and underused choice. i like lucy or lindy as nn
    Antonia- so pretty and underused as well. although i dont like toni for a girl
    Isidora- really cool. although seems more fantasy to me than real child. i prefer isadora
    Emmeline- never liked this one. it looks like a weird combo of madeline and emily
    Mirabel -really pretty. surprised its not more popular. prefer mirabelle spelling
    Persephone- eh dont really like
    Ziva- this is ok.
    Hazel- unique quirky nature name from the past. i like it.
    Helena- pretty and strong
    Edith- eh kind of old hagish.. could grow on me though

    Arthur- dont care for this one.
    Maximilian- too long. i like just max
    Stellan- this is ok.
    Frederick- too old manish
    Dashiell- nice and different
    Xavier- like this one
    Isaiah- like this one
    Elijah- ok
    Noah-ok
    Wyatt-ok

    Thanks for your comments on my names. :-) Antonia would be after someone who went by Toni, but I think I would use Anna or Nia as a nickname unless she really loved Toni when she got older.

    Your list is lovely. Rosalie is awesome. I like Maya too but prefer the Maia spelling.
    I have a cousin called Harrison and I love the name, so handsome. Everett almost made my own top list, I really like it.

    There’s some great names here, guys!

    yellowwatts – all your girls names are gorgeous. I’m loving the short, strong, classics at the moment and I think your choices epitomize that. The only one of your boys I’m not keen on in Gideon, though it’s a fine choice.

    jenni-lynn – your list is full of interesting choices! Alexa, Jasmin, Rosalie and Yesenia are my favourites of the girls; Isaiah, Julian, Leandro and Xavier of the boys.

    bumblebea – it is such a shame your other half wouldn’t go for those, they are lovely! Florence, Beatrix and Winifred are especially cool (love Winifred because of Fred in Angel!) and I have never consider Wilfred before but now I’m majorly crushing!! Wilf is adorable.

    myosotis – your list rocks! Pandora, Beatrix, Jessamine, Fae (though I’d spell it Faye), Elspeth, Imogen…all gorgeous! Have you considered Ariadne, Melanthe or Calanthe? They seem right up your street and similar to Erianthe but also look nicer in my opinion! Of your boys, it is great to see Caspian, Ptolomy (awesome!) and Edmund.

    inga – your list is full of beautiful classics. My favourites are Noah, Isaac, Elliot, Alexander, Theodore, Claire, Juliet, Anna, Amelie, Genevieve and Elena.

    I love Persephone, Hazel, Emmeline and Helena from your list. For boys, Stellan and Noah are very cute :-)

    My favourite boys’s names are:
    1. Robbie
    2. Alfie
    3. Jacob
    4. Alex
    5. Aaron
    6. Kyle
    7. Christopher
    8. Billy
    9. Max
    10. Seth
    They’re the names I think are OK. I have never heard a boys’ name and thought, “aww/wow/omg, I want to name a child that!” I just don’t really like boys’ names in general.

    For girls:
    1. Saskia
    2. Nina
    3. Tania
    4. Orielle
    5. Una
    6. Persephone
    7. Violet
    8. Quinn
    9. Willow
    10. Reese

    Tell me what you think :-)

    And more great choices!

    Twilit Amity – Robbie (as a nickname, so cute!), Christopher and Max are my favourites for boys. Max is actually what my boyfriend and I have picked out if we ever have a son. I’d prefer a longer version but so far he hasn’t been persuaded! For girls, Una, Persephone and Willow are awesome! I also really like Saskia and Nina. I think our girls lists are of similar styles, even if some of the names differ. :-)

    jillianjiggs – Anika and Pauline are cool to see, very unexpected! Ivy, Lucy, Olive, Sylvie and Elsa are my favourites from your girls list. Mira is nice as a nickname. For boys, I really like Declan, Leo and Jasper.

    lcd1912 – Your girls list is awesome! Isla, Maeve and Lucy are particularly lovely. Donovan and Ronan are my favourites on your boys list. I also like August and James.

    EricaMorgan – Asher is my absolute favourite from your boys. James and Ethan are nice too and it is cool to see Abel. Your girls list is beautiful, the standouts being: Emilia, Isla, Gabriella, Vivienne and Genevieve. Claire has been on my mind a lot lately too, and I have a soft spot for Morgan (despite it not really being my style) as it is the name my mum says she would have chosen had she had another child.
