Iris, Miranda, Eloise, Marlowe, Roscoe, and Wallace.
Lucille – Of the Luc- long forms I prefer Lucinda. Lucille is lovely, but feels a little dated.
Violet – So pretty! Violet was in my top ten for a long time, but she’s been replaced in my affections by the quirkier, more mysterious Iris.
Amelia – Yawn. It’s cute, but I’ve known several.
Claire – Bad associations! I’ve known two women with this name who turned out to be insane (and that’s not hyperbole). Beautiful, but I wince whenever I hear it.
Charlotte – Again, yawn. I like it better than Amelia, but its popularity turns me off, as does the Sex and the City character.
Marina – A place where you dock boats.
Myles – I like Miles, but prefer Milo (can you tell I’ve got a thing for boys’ names that end in ‘o’?).
Owen – No opinion. I'd like it on someone else's baby, but personally I find it a bit bland.
Cornelius – I kind of love the ridiculous over-the-top quality, but all the nicknames are terrible (Corny? Neal?). I would never use it, but it certainly has the clunky-cool charm of another favorite: Ferdinand.
Rudy – I LOVE R-names for boys—Rupert, Rufus, Rory and Roscoe are all firm favorites. Rudy does still have an old man whiff to it, though.
Celeste – Sleek, elegant, but forever Babar’s wife to me, unfortunately.
Spencer – This is actually adorable, though I’m not sure how it would wear on a full-grown man.
Marcel – Too overtly French for me to use, but it’s got a great sound and I could see it rise as an attractive alternative to Marcus.
Diana – A beautiful old name associated, to me, with a deity and a children’s book author. I would use it in the middle spot.
When I "rolled" the Nymbler again, I got a lot luckier: Claudia, Beatrice, Gabriel, Jules, Antonia, Helena, Calvin, Leo...I love them all!

William - My fourth favorite boys name. It's a versatile classic.
Barnard - Eh. It's nothing I'd use. Too close to barnyard. I like Barnabas better.
Leo - Love this. I like Leland and Leon a bit better, but I do love Leo.
Jack - Good solid classic. But since it's my uncle's name, I wouldn't use it.
Noah - I like it, but I'm oversaturated, having heard it so much.
Al - Just... Al? No thanks.
Marius - I love the idea of this as a middle name. It's handsome and dashing.
Charlotte - Good, solid classic.
Lena - Eh. It's okay.
Grace - Solid name, but I heard it SO much.
Eva - Well, I prefer the longer, more frou frou Evangeline. But it's a good name.
Isabelle - Another solid name. I hear this one so much, and it's a shame, because it's lovely.
Essie - Not a fan. I suppose it could be a cute nickname.
Claudette - Not a fan.
Genevieve - It sound nice, but I have a negative association with the name.Silas ~ Gideon ~ Lincoln ~ Ezekiel ~ Malachi ~ Samuel ~ Ezra ~ Charlie ~ Gabriel ~ Elliott
Maisie ~ Sophie ~ Naomi ~ Willa ~ Evangeline ~ Freya ~ Vivienne ~ Nora ~ Josephine ~ Daphne

Lana - NMS. I don't like that this can be pronounced so many ways (I've heard lah-nah, lay-nah, la-na with an a like in apple..)
Maeve - NMS. Too short.
Cara - It's ok but I prefer Cora.
Juliet - Pretty.
Charlotte - This was on my list for a while (or is it still? haha). It's pretty, I just don't love it.
Abigail - I really like this but it's so popular.
Grace - Too boring.
Ava - Too popular, especially in my area.
Brendan - Love this name! But a distant cousin has a Brenden.. we keep in contact quite a bit.
Oliver - It's ok.
Henry - This name has grown on me so much! Still don't know if I love it enough to put it on my list.
Owen - Like it.
Garrett - I do like this name but I really hate the potential nn Gary.

Lucy - A little too cutesy for me. I greatly prefer Lucinda.
Caroline - Stately, but boring.
Violet - Pretty.
Alberta - Albert with an 'a' tacked on the end... definitely not my style. On the other hand, at least it's unusual. I would prefer Roberta.
Ida - All right, but not substantial enough for me.
Amelia - I've never cared for the sound of this name. Makes me think of the word "mealy."
Charlotte - I really like this name; it's appealing and dignified.
Elizabeth - Like Caroline: stately, but boring. On the other hand, it does have a lot of awesome nicknames.
Arthur - Meh. I like the historical connotations, but the name itself is a bit dated and just ok. The potential nickname "Art" is not my taste.
Russell - I don't like it at all. It has a dated, gawky, country feeling.
Benjamin - Very nice, though a bit common.
Norman - I like a good Germanic name, but Norman is still in old-man territory for me. The nickname "Norm" is not appealing.
Leonard - Yuck. Leo, Leon and Leonardo all sound better to me.
Gilbert - Pretty ugly. The only selling point is the "Anne of Green Gables" association.
Henry - Very nice, and I'm glad it's enjoying a resurgence.
I would consider Henry, Benjamin, Charlotte and maybe Elizabeth. Most of the boys' names, in particular, are NOT my style. On the other hand, I would consider all these names to be fine on someone else's kid.
