Say: Hi Benjamin! Do you get called Ben a lot?
Think: Ben is so cute! For little boys, I love Benny. Blaise is very mature and grown up, and balances the sweetness of Benjamin. I really like it, even though I don't normally like alliterated names (ex. BB, AA, NN ect.)
These are my daughters Christina Danielle, Abigail Olivia, Rebecca Autumn, Emily Briana, and Michaela Brooke. They go by Krista, Abbie, Becca, Em, and Kaela.
Say: Hello girls! My goodness, there are a lot of you!
Think: All quite common, bland names. I love Olivia, like Abigail, Autumn and Emily, but I dislike all the rest. They sound quite 80s to me and just don't stand out at all. Krista, Danielle and Kaela are some of my very least favourite names unfortunately. I also don't see the point in shortening Christina to Krista. Krista seems like a full name to me, and I don't like how her name starts with a C, but her nickname starts with a K. I knew a girl called Cassandra who went by Kaycee and everyone was quite confused why her nickname began with a K. That being said, this set does go together extremely well. While I'm not a fan of it, there's no denying that all the names fit.
This is my son Tobias Jeffrey and my daughter Eliza Adeline. Toby, Liza ― say hello! :)
Say: Hi Toby, hi Liza!
Think: What a perfect sibset! All kind of old-fashioned names, but not totally matchy-matchy. And the nicknames Toby and Liza sound so good together!
This is my daughter, Samara Blair.
Say: Hi Samara!
Think: I don't think those names go together. I do like Blair though.
Meet my children; Keane Joseph & Kyleigh Henrietta.
Say: Hi Keane and Kyleigh, nice to meet you both.
Think: I'm not usually a fan of surname names, but Keane Joseph is rather handsome. Kyleigh though is very trendy, especially in this spelling, and it doesn't really go well with the old-fashioned Henrietta. Kylie Harriet would be preferable, but even then I prefer Kyle on a boy to Kylie on a girl.
These are my children Oliver Samuel, Phoebe Madeleine and Imogen Christina.
Say: Hi Oliver, Phoebe and Imogen.
Think: Oliver Samuel is a pretty classic sounding name. Neither names are really favorites of mine. Phoebe is a lovely name, but it doesn't go well with Madeleine. Imogen is a nice name as well, but it really doesn't go with a name like Christina.
Meet mu son Harley Ryan
Say: Hi Harley!
Think: These two names sound really good together, but I'm not a huge fan of Harley.
Here is my niece Meredith Riley. We usually call her Mimi though.
Say: Hi Meredith! You have the same name as my best friend, I love it!
Think: Meredith is gorgeous and Mimi is very cute. However, I prefer Mimi as a nick name for Naomi, Amelia, etc. I think Meredith is beautiful and I would not shorten it personally. I'm not a fan of Riley at all, and I feel like the trendy style clashes a bit with classic, uncommon Meredith. However, the name does look cute to the eye and the flow isn't too bad either.
These are my sons Lucian Hugo and Julius Alden. They will also answer to Luke and Jules. :)
Say: Hey boys!
Think: Not a huge fan of Lucian or Julius, although I do like Hugo and Alden. Lucian is a bit out there for me, and Julius seems very feminine to me because of all of the Julies, Juliets, Juliannas, etc.
Hi, meet my daughters Melisande Ophelia and Adelaide Fiona. Lissy, Addy, say hi!
Say: Hi girls!
Think: Melisande Ophelia and Adelaide are gorgeous, but I don't think Fiona fits in there at all.
Hi, meet my children Lyra Florence, Phoebe Arabella, and Noah Stanley.
