    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 Though Kathy, Rebecca, and Lindsey may be considered a little outdated.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…

    Tuh-MAIR-uh, or Tuh-MAH-ruh. I like te latter better, but I’ve heard the first one WAY more.

    Some more girls from work:
    Abigail “Abby”
    Jacqueline and Valares
    Mylah
    Makaila
    Tiana
    Hailey
    Briggitta “B” (or maybe “Bee”?)
    Jaden
    Jazmine
    Sara
    Allison
    Alicia
    Sunshine
    Aliyah
    Madison (all the Madisons are starting to be teenagers. It feels so wrong. I think of Madison as a trendy newborn name still)

    I love it, but I also grew up with Pokemon, so that’s a big part of my positive association with it. Ithink it’s cute and spunky!

    I think Ismini sounds really cute! Do you think it would have pronuniation, problems, though? As an American, I see it and think iz-mih-nee – like Is Minnie. I wonder if that might be problematic?
    Johanne is beautiful, too! And so much better than the english pronunciation. I agree that Ismini Johanne would be lovely!

    As for boys, I LOVE Louis!!! And Dimitri!!! Not a fan of Casimir – I think of the nickname Cass as rather girly (short for Cassidy or Cassandra or something), so I don’t really like it much for a boy. Basil’s cute, too, though.

    Coworker just had twins named Arieana and Jacob! Really cute together, though I’m not crazy about the spelling of Arieana.

    I would say Tobias fits best. Benjamin, too, but I would be inclined to want to have him be just Ben, which I think is a little boring…

    No kids to ask, but if it counts, when my little sister was born, I was almost 5, and I was absolutely convinced that her name should be Gloria and no other name would be anywhere near as good as that, and I was so mad at my parents when they didn’t use it. No one even knows where I learned that name as a 4 year old….

    I think it’s pretty! I honestly prefer Delilah or Delia, but Dahlia is nice too.

    I don’t really like Sariah. I feel like it would constantly be mispronounced or mistaken for Sarah. I had a roommate named Saraya, which has a similar pronunciation, and she had such a hard time with people getting her name wrong… Something about it just doesn’t really work for me.
    I really love Aurora, though, and especially with the nickname Rory!! So cute! (If you like Rory a lot, you could also go with Lorelai nn Rory, like in Gilmore Girls. Just something different to maybe consider.) Aurora is really beautiful, too, and I feel like it’s a name we name-lovers discuss a lot, but it’s not actually used nearly as often as we might think.
    You’ve got a lot of good auggestion for middle names, too. I really like Aurora Noelle, Aurora Vivian, and Aurora Jade! (I adore Jade, too…)

    Benedikt – the k make it look like a trendy spelling, even if it’s not. Benedict’s one of those weirdly trendy and fangirly names right now, too (Benedict Cumberbatch), so I think it might come off as trying to use that name but make it unique.
    Bjorn – I think of it as more Scandanavian/Norse than German. Also makes me think of Beorn from The Hobbit.
    Dominik – I think this would be my top choice from your list.
    Josef – very German spelling, but I feel like the name doesn’t really stand out.
    Kaspar – the friendly ghost? It could be okay, but it’s another where I feel like an English-speaking audience may not appreciate that the spelling isn’t just a “trendy” version of a more common name…
    Matthias – I like the name a lot. Does not sound German to me at all.
    Pascal – all I can think of is the chameleon from Tangled. And it seems more French than German.
    Samuel – does not sound German, though I love the name.
    Thomas – does not sound German
    Tobias – does sound German, and yet not quite. Not as much as some of your others. I think it could work, though.

    Trio of sisters at work the other day named Makenzi (newborn), Isabel, and Olivia. So many popular names in one family, but other than the spelling of Makenzi, I actually like them all together!
    There were also sisters Maura and Deirdre, and a girl named Rylee with brother Jake.
