    Hmm, I do not like Remi for a girl. It’s such a cute boy name to me…

    I forgot this, but the other day at work, I finally encountered a Nevaeh. And THREE of my coworkers all commented on how much they dislike that name. I’m really glad to know it’s not just us name forums people who find it tacky.

    I really love Nicholas – it’s one of my top names. Of your other names, I like Darren best. None of the others are favorites of mine, but I don’t really have any problem with any of them.

    How about:
    Declan
    Kieran
    Harrison
    Kendall
    Ian
    Marcus
    Dean
    James
    Oliver
    Quinn
    Riker
    Damien
    Blaine
    Vincent
    Xavier
    Dorian
    Bennett
    Rylan
    Cedric
    Drake
    Maxwell
    Roman
    Giovanni
    Henry
    Felix
    Bentley

    I definitely have a favorites list, but not a dislike list. Kind of an interesting idea, but I’d be worried that if I eventually fall in love with a name I currently dislike, remembering that I disliked it would make me hesitant to use it…

    I also make mini lists of like, my top 5 combos every now and then, to see how that changes over time. Which I find really interesting to look back on.

    I love Isla!! And I agree, maybe Isla Hadley? Isla Winter? Tessa’s cute too, though I like it better as a nickname for Teresa.

    For a boy, I like Jace and Eli best. I have a huge soft spot for the name Tracey for a boy, but just Trace is too much of just a word for me. I kinda like Eli Warner.

    I really like Elise!! But I definitely like Julia a lot more…. I feel like Julia is more timelessly beautiful, while Elise is cute and pretty, and great on a child, but harder to picture on a teen or adult.

    What do you guys think of Nina?? Would that fit in well???

    If you guys have more ideas, they’d be welcome. Nothing has really clicked as “right” yet. Some of them are names I really like, like Patrick, Melody, Jim/James, and Chase, but that wouldn’t really work right for this project….

    Definitely Casper the Friendly Ghost. Though to be honest, I never really watched any of that. It was just a part of the culture I grew up in. And I think because of that, it bow kind of seems like a pet name to me. I’ve met MANY white dogs and cats called Casper because they’re white like a ghost….
    Spelling it with an A makes me want to pronounce it Cas-PAHR, which sounds kind of French, but pretentious… I definitely prefer the E spelling, just for simplicity…

    Elijah Daniel. Daniel’s not my favorite of the middle name options, but I think that sounds the best. Vincent works okay, too, but I think Daniel flows better. The 2 syllable names all definitely flow better than the longer ones. I like Zachary and Dominic a lot on their own, but they’re too long with Elijah…

    Like FelicityElle, I immediately thought of the teacher’s father in Matilda. I grew up with that movie, so it stuck with me pretty well. There’s one scene where the group of kids are reading in a rather chanty, meant-to-freak-someone-out way as “possessed” chalk writes on the blackboard “This….is….Magnus”. So that’s my image of the name. I’ve never really encountered it outside of that movie. It does also kind of make me think of that brand of ice cream bars. I think they’re Magnum, but close enough…. I don’t think I’d use it. It seems a bit too grand to me.

    Teenage girl at work today named Angelyn, pronounced like the word Angel, and then -LEEN. I incorrectly assumed it would be something like ANNE-jul-lynn and was corrected.

    I just kept thinking how many Olivias go by Liv or Livvy, and how close to Levi that is. If the mom hadn’t very specifically been talking to the son, I might have assumed she was just using a nickname for Olivia…

    Some super cute families at work today! Spellings all uncertain…

    Lila, Vivienne “Vivi”, and Dorothy “Dot” or “Dottie”! I don’t usually like Dorothy, but this little toddler was so darling!!!

    Olivia, Laurel, and Levi. All wayyy too similar to me…

    Honestly, I do not like Max just on it’s own. I think it needs to be a nickname for something longer to really be taken seriously. Just Max is a dog name. Arthur I agree sounds kind of off with the middle names. It rhymes too much with Peter!

    Like your boyfriend, I prefer “classic”-ish boys names. Maybe some of these?:
    Allen
    Andrew
    Leon
    William
    Alexander
    Richard
    George
    Rylan
    Theodore
    Benjamin
    Jeffrey
    Laurent
    Harrison
    Bentley
    Emmett
    Oliver
    Darren
    Damien
    Wesley
    Quinton
    Nathan
    Vincent
    Steven
    Landon
    Zachary
    Jason
    Tristan
    Francis
    Nicholas
    Maddox

    I like Jessie and Katherine the best by far. Jessie’s one of my favorite names, though I don’t know if I’d ever use it myself for personal reasons.
    Your list seems like a lot of names that were trendy when I was a kid, but are a bit rarer now. Though Kathy, Rebecca, and Lindsey may be considered a little outdated. Isabel/le is lovely, but super popular right now, so it sticks out from the rest of your list.

    I like them together a lot! Though I do not like Ava as a nickname for Savannah. Entirely different sounds. I like Sanna, Savvy, Van, or Vanna a lot, though!!

    Ooh, Dimitri Frey! I love it!! I adore the name Frey – definitely never heard it used on a girl, though I’ve heard a fair amount of Freya/Freyja. I’ve also never seen it spelt Frej – I know the god’s name is often written as Freyr, though? I’m American though, so more distanced from the oriinal language… Ether way, I love it.
    Louis Arthur is great too. I’m not crazy about Celeste, but I do like it with Lana. And I adore August, but still not crazy about Casimir….

    I see it and I immediately think of Malificent. I like Millie, but Millicent is really unappealing to me…

    I don’t really like it. Not a fan most of N names on girls in general, and this one seems like it’s just Ella or Bella trying to be unique…
