Tempest-to me, this is a mouthful and it is nms
Melody- really like Melody. I think it's sweet.
Arabella- Too popular. I think Arabella is the next Isabella. Other than the popularity issue, I like it.
Adrianna- I like this name, although it is really close to my name and has the same pronunciation issues mine does.
Briar- Hmm, interesting. I don't like it personally but I wouldn't mind someone else using it.
Analaya- Too many a's for me in one name. I'm not crazy about how it sounds either.
Elizabelle- It seems sort of made up, but I LOVE Eliza. Its on my long list.
London- Could see the appeal here. I think I like it but wouldn't use it myself
Peyton- Dislike Peyton, sorry. I don't think it's a bad name, I just don't like it personally.
Jackson- Too popular
Rixon- Sorry, not a fan
Seamus- Seamus is a guilty pleasure of mine. Where I live no one would prn it correctly so I could never use it, but I love it.
Cohen- I really like Cohen, it used to be on my long list
Jai- Not a fan

I like them in general, I'm glad someone is finally looking at different names. SOOO tired of the top 100. FYI - I believe Cohen is extremely disrespectful to jewish people (not positive why). Which is unfortunate, because I love it.Natacha - mother to Geneva SimoneRunning all my names past http://babynamesworld.parentsconnect.com/a site that surveys people with the same name.
Boys: Archer Sloan or Merrick
Girls: Indira Maren or Sloan

Tempest- I don't like this one very much at all.
Zaylia- Pretty cute, but not gorgeous.
Melody- I really like this!
Adrianna- Very, very pretty!
Elizabelle- I like this better than Elizabeth and Isabelle!
London- Not bad.
Peyton- This doesn't give the "pretty girl" image to me...
Avabelle- Elizabelle is much better.
Zara- Okay, but Kara is nicer.
Jackson- I like this!
Rixon- Rixon, Nixon, Dixon. NMS.
Seamus- I like Irish names in general, but this has become a cliche.
Cohen- Very disrespectful to Jewish people apparently, as it is the name of their equivalent to a priest and they dislike it when non-Jews use it. Don't use it unless you yourself are Jewish.
Jai- Sounds a touch feminine to me.
Claude- NMS, at all.
My favorites are Arabella and Adrianna for girls, and Jackson for boys.J'adore les noms des filles françaises...
Brigitte ~ Zéphyrine ~ Alice ~ Yseult ~ Noémie ~ Georgine ~ Étiennette ~ Zoé ~ Euphrasie
And classic boys' names.
James ~ Christopher ~ Alexander ~ William ~ Hugh ~ Anthony ~ Joseph ~ Robert ~ Aaron

Tempest- I also think of Vanessa from the Cosby show
Zaylia- Pretty, sounds short for Azalea
Melody- I've only known kind of 'blah' Melody's so it feels that way to me
Briar- I like the sound and the look, but not so much the meaning
Analaya- I like your other 'A' names better
Elizabelle- This is pretty
London- I like it a lot, but know several girls and boys with this name
Peyton- This was on my list for ages, but for some reason I tired of it
Avabelle- Not a fan, it sounds awkward to me for some reason
Zara- This is cute, and a bit different without being weird at all
Layla- Pretty, again I know several of them
Jackson- There are a bazillion of these where I live, so I'm very tired of it
Seamus- I love this and Hamish too
Cohen- I like the sound, but potentially offensive if you are not Jewish
Jai- looks incomplete to me
Claude- I don't know how to feel about this one- Claude Monet, good. Sounding like 'clawed', not so good
Patch- It sounds kind of fun and cool, but seems very much like a nickname and not a full name

Tempest: not a fan.
Zaylia: sounds a little made-up to me.
Melody: pretty, and great if you love music.
Arabella: I much prefer this to Annabel and other variations, just because it's less commonly used, and I like the R sound.
Adrianna: pretty, but in my mind it belongs to some rich, pretentious girl.
Briar: sounds like a boys' name to me.
Analaya: this seems kind of made up to me. I like Anya better.
Elizabelle: it's a cute twist on Elizabeth and Isabelle, but it reminds me of Tinkerbell.
London: I love the city but I'm not so big on it for a name.
Peyton: just okay.
Avabelle: same as Elizabelle.
Zara: I like that it's not widely used (in my area, at least), but I can only picture it on a snobby girl.
Layla: it's nice, but I can't picture it on a young, professional woman. It's too little girl-ish for an adult.
Jackson: this one is great but kind of popular now. Love the nn Jack.
Rixon: sounds really made-up to me.
Seamus: I like this one the best of all the boy names.
Cohen: I like the name, but I have heard that it's disrespectful to Jewish people.
Jai: kind of cutesy for a boy.
Claude: seems kind of outdated to me.
Patch: I immediately think of Sour Patch Kids.I'm Erin, a teenaged writer who loves names (and dessert).
