Say: Hi kids!
Think: Yikes... 7 kids! Beatrice Olive I don't like. Felix Rafferty is adorable. August Grey is okay, as is Ezra Benedict. Clementine Mary is not my style. Dexter Barnaby sounds like serial killer/circus ringmaster. Edith Matilda is so cute!
Meet my little brother Elliott Josiah.
THINK: I really like both names, but not together.
Hi, this is my son Ian Michael
Say: It's nice to meet you Ian!
Think: I like Ian but it doesn't really flow with Michael.
This is my cousin Chloe Eleanora.
Say: Hi, Chloe!
Think: Lovely name! Eleanora is beautiful and Chloe is so so so cute. I love how they flow.
These are my sons, Julian Dashiell and Soren Vincent.
Say: Hi boys!
Think: Julian Dashiell is okay but I wouldn't choose it. I love Soren Vincent though!
This is my daughter Natalya Grace.
Say: Hello Natalya Grace, what a beautiful name!
Think: Love the name Grace, once of my favourites, Natalya is quite nice, but I wouldn't name my child that.
This is my daughter Ruby Sophia.
Say: Nice to meet you, Ruby!
Think: ...of children's book characters Max and Ruby. That's what I get for working with four year olds.
This is my son, Dean Alexander.
Say: Hey Dean! I know another little guy with your name!
Think: A good respectable name, I do know someone else who used this a few years ago. Solid and quiet without any easy nns, I like that in a name.
These are brother's girls, Alexis Clare, Ilka Grace and Tess Mercedes.
Say: Hi girls!
Think: I like Alexis but I like Clare spelled Claire. Ilka makes me think of elk. I love Grace and Tess but absolutely not Mercedes.
These are my twin sons, Kieran James and Nolan William.
