I like Windsor (more so for a boy) but pairing it with Elizabeth sounds very cheesy and try-hard. People already think 'royal' when they hear Windsor so I would steer clear of any other names tied to...

Most of my faves have never ranked in the top 1000. I don't consider rankings for the opposite gender so my names aren't popular.
Shea- not ranked for either gender
Jade- not ranked;...

Meh, not appealing to me. And I'm guessing she'll be called Ava for the rest of her life
Wildly popular names can get annoying because they're overused. If my faves suddenly became popular I'd get sick of hearing them and wouldn't dare use them. They're used enough. It's like if every...
I love Wren on both genders and consider it firmly unisex. Wren on a boy is very handsome
It's nice but very wordy and plant-y. I hear 'Reed Palmer' so I think of tall reeds & palm trees swaying in the Everglades. I like Palmer Reid better
I don't have combos, only first names but for now:
Oh! I just realize those are my favorite colors: blue (azure), green (jade), and red (fox). My own little...
I love Zephyr. You could use Joseph/Josef to get to Zef
Maven could work on a boy. It's similar to Mabon
I know a Maverick and I just don't like the name. It seems very try hard
I have 2 cousins named Mavis, 1 male & 1 female.
Auburn leans more masculine and I like it for a boy. On a girl, I don't find it attractive but I don't think it would strange. I like the nn Aubry
Name teasing doesn't concern me. I was raised and still live in a very racially & culturally diverse part of the country so kids here are accustomed to names that are strange to 'Average Joe...
Malia is OK but I prefer Mali.
The Hawaiian spelling for the pronunciation you want is Kalea. Kalia could easily be mistaken for Kaila
Between Malia & Kalia, I prefer Malia. Between Malia &...

There are a lot of C names in my fam and although they aren't that similar (ex. Corbin, Callie, Chase, Cameron, Christy, Chance, etc), their names are constantly getting mixed up. I'm steering clear...
The difference between Gryffin & Phoenix? Maybe because gryphons are ugly creatures while a phoenix is beautiful? Phoenix is a gorgeous name with a gorgeous meaning that I love for either gender. I...
Do something with the -ry 'ree' sound:
Variants of Henry:
I think it's gorgeous. On a boy it's just a word and a bit pretentious, like naming your kid King or Legend. On a girl it's a name and it's lovely. When I introduce her I'd be sure to say something...

This tends to happen when I hear the name on the other gender.
Forest & Jasper- I've always thought they were OK for boys but I had no interest in using them. Someone on NB asked about Forest for...
Fox is currently my #1 boy name. I also love Blaise (on my unisex list) so obviously I think they work well together
I love Fifer! You could go with the German spelling, Pfeiffer, but I prefer the straightforward, Fifer.
I only find it odd when siblings have the names of a couple (Mary & Joseph, Ross & Rachel)

I like it but I like unusual nature names. It has a beautiful imagery- strong, bold, and cool. With all the odd, 'not-a-name' names kids have today, why would you think Glacier would be a target for...
Very cheesy and it reminds me of Summer's Eve (feminine hygiene products).
Rule of thumb: If you're using two nature/word names, one of them has to be subtle.
Less cheesy alternatives to Summer...
Vander sounds very nicknamey and therefore kiddie IMO. If someone introduced me to a Vander I'd think his name was really Evander.
Because Beau is not just a name, it's a word so you would be calling your daughter 'handsome'.

Fox is currently my #1 boy name so I'd be thrill
I'd be intrigued by Anchor
Bo... meh! I'd be intrigued by Beau
Future, Legend & Experience sound like they had narcissistic parents...
