What came up...
Charlotte: I really like Lottie, but Charlotte isn't my style. I usually prefer shorter, spunkier names. It goes well with William though, which is probably why it came up.
Pete: I've always thought Pete looks a bit unfinished. It's not really my style.
Neva: I just feel like it's the chivvy way of spelling 'never' which isn't really appealing to me.
Mika: I think it looks and sounds cute, but I probably wouldn't use it.
Anna: LOVE this name. 3 of my great grandmothers were called Anna/Annelise, and it's also my best friends name.
Pierce: It's a nice name, and I understand why people might like it, but it's not really my style.
Gracie: I think it's a bit boring actually.
Barney: Not attractive. I think it sounds a bit... Clumsy? I don't know how to explain it.
Lily: A bit overused, but it is beautiful.
Cole: Sounds like coal. Nms.
James: Handsome name.
Elizabeth: I adore all the nn options like Eliza, Ellie, Beth, Betsy, Bess etc. I would rather just use one of the nicknames as the full name though.
Olivia: I've always thought that it's a beautiful name, but it is a bit overused. I would use it with a more uncommon nickname though. Love the nn Liv.
