    I don’t like Stone. Stone Mason is way too much a thing, and I feel like Stone Cast, which is what most people would likely k ow him as, is very noun-heavy. I like the suggestions Sawyer and Spencer, or maybe Steven, Skylar, Silas, Sebastian?
    I think combining your other kids names would be a little ridiculous. Ajay sounds really close to Jayda, too. Make your kids’ names all unique from one another. They’re all different people, after all. Also, AJ is such a common nickname, just spelling it Ajay looks kind of like you’re trying too hard to be unique. I also know a kid whose full name is just AJ, and EVERYONE asks why it’s not short for something.

    Rose as a first name is so lovely!! Not crazy about Rose Elise – I feel like it runs together a bit. Like the name is just Rosalise. It’s still not bad as a combo, and I definitely still like it more than Sonya, though… Sonya just makes me think of Sony.

    Natalia. It’ a lot easier to say. I’ve always felt like Eliana was just too many vowels and soft sounds. Both are really pretty, but I definitely prefer Natalia.

    I remember asking a similar question on here ages ago, so I’m curious to see the responses!

    I personally do not like month names, or season or day names, at all. I think they’re a no-win scenario. It’s kind of ridiculous to name your kid after the time they were born, but if you pick a day/month/season that wasn’t when they were born, it seems super random. And either way, they’ll be teased for it. Every September, every Wednesday, every summer, whatever. I just think time names are a bad idea all around.

    From your other names, though, I really love Julia!!!

    When you said it was a Spanish name, I read Miqueas as Mih-KAY-ahs, but if you hadn’t said that first, I probably would have thought it was Meek-ahs or Mike-as. Just two syllables. I definitely think Michaeas would be a good choice – like you said, similar enough to Michael. It might still be pronounced wrong at first, but it makes sense once you hear it.

    I really love Lucas, too, though, and Mattias is nice, though I kind of prefer Matthias, with is pronounced way differently. I like the idea of Michaeas better than Matas, too. But I think Lucas might be a nice option. Or what about just Micah? The only Micah I’ve ever known was a Hispanic girl, so I still have a hard time seeing it on a boy, but I do see it working with Spanish-speakers, maybe?

    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.

    Kieran
    Harrison
    Kendall
    Ian
    Marcus
    Dean
    James
    Oliver
    Quinn

    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…
