your opinions please
Give me your honest opinions for these names. The names with an * are ones I definitely want your opinion on. The others are optional.
Bennett*- Nickname Ben (I adore Ben)
Grayson/Graydon*- Which one would you pick?
Cohen/Koen- Not sure about this one
Eli- Can Eli stand on its own?
Allegra*- I live in the US and the allergy medicine doesn't bother me.
Freya/Freja- Which spelling?
Francesca- Nickname Frankie
I need more girl names that I love. Any ideas?
If Allegra, Tinsley, Bennett, Theo, Grayson/Graydon, and or Asher were siblings, do you think they go together? If not replace the ones you don't think go, but leave Allegra and Bennett b/c they're my favorite girl and boy names as of now.

Grayson/Graydon*- I like Grayson but a little too popular. I might just go with Gray or Grey myself.
Theo* - NMS
Asher* - really like this, would use myself but for conflict with last name.
Linus* - love! can't get hubby past the Peanuts connection but I wish I knew a little Linus!
Cohen/Koen- NMS and it's meaningful in Judaism and could be seen as inappropriate for others to use
Sebastian - I don't like any of the nicknames
Henry - I don't see the appeal of this comeback hit
Milo/Miles - Love! I would name my son Miles and call him Milo I think.
Declan - nice and becoming more recognizable
Colin - still handsome though a maybe a bit out of date? I'm not sure, it just seems like there were a lot of Colins my age.
Eli- Absolutely can stand on its own
Ian* - ok
Callum - ok
Gideon* - very handsome. I would tend to shorten to Giddy though, which would be no good.
Conrad - NMS. something about the 'con' part puts me off
Desmond - ok
Allegra*- Love! the allergy medicine doesn't put me off either
Tinsley* - seems like a trendy smush of sounds, like a name without history
Scarlett - I don't like the 'scar' beginning
Freya/Freja- Love Freya this way!
Francesca- Frankie is cute but Francesca is not my favorite
Louisa - love!
Sophie - very nice but so popular now
Waverly - ok
Blythe - pretty
Blair - seems dated to 80s for me
Tatum - I like this one but would need to be careful what you pair with it. Tatum and Louisa as sisters for example, would be hard to know if Tatum were a boy or girl.
You've got some great names here! I really like Allegra and Bennett as siblings.

Bennett- I think it's a fresh alternative to Benjamin. Love!
Graydon- a little less trendy than Grayson? At least a little less common.
Theo- love! It's one of my favourites.
Asher- it's a nice name, but it's very common right now.
Linus- I automatically think of Linus from Charlie Brown.
Declan- another favourite of mine.
Eli- yes, I do think it can stand alone.
Ian- it's all right.
Gideon- this name feels like it was from Harry Potter. It might actually...
Allegra- this one is very sweet and elegant.
Tinsley- sort of reminds me of tinsel...
Scarlett- love! It's a favourite.
Sophie- I like this a lot, better than Sophia. It's really popular now though.
Waverly- a cool, fresh name and I love the meaning.
Blythe- a cooler, less pretentious alternative to Blair.
I think that Allegra, Bennett, Theo, and Graydon would make good siblings. I think Tinsley and Asher are a little out of place among those four names. I'm not sure why, they just don't fit right to me.
For girls names, I would suggest Delaney, Elodie, Reese, Thea, Natalie... I'm not totally sure of your style so I'm just taking a stab at it!I'm Erin, a teenaged writer who loves names (and dessert).

Bennett- like but not love. My fav. Ben name is Benedict.
Graydon- Feels to trendy to me.
Theo- I like it as a nn for Theodore but don't love it on it's own
Asher- I like it a lot. A similar less popular name is Archer
Linus- To me it screams "nerd"
Ian- A bit of a '90s feel to me
Gideon- Love love love Gideon
Allegra- I play classical music so the first thing I think of is musical tempo Allegro. Not sure if this is a problem
Tinsley- To "teen-mom" for me
Scarlett- Sorry but for some reason I think "Scarlett the harlot"
Sophie- It is ok
Waverly- Really like this one!
Blythe- It is ok. Makes me think of Gilbert Blythe from Ann of Green Gables. Good association

Bennett*- Love! It's a nice alternative to Benjamin, which I also like.
Grayson/Graydon*- Neither TBH. Too trendy.
Theo* - Love! But I prefer Theodore as a more formal name, and Theo as a nn.

Cohen/Koen- Don't really like it. Really don't like the Koen spelling.

Henry - Like!
Milo/Miles - Like!
Declan - Meh. It's grown on me but not enough for me to like it.
Colin - It's ok but I prefer the Collin or Collen spellings.
Eli- I think it can stand on it's own but I like it better as a nn for Elijah, Elias or even Elliott.
Ian* - Love!
Callum - Love!
Gideon* - Meh.
Conrad - NMS.
Desmond - It's ok.
Allegra*- It reminds me of the allergy medication (I know you said it doesn't matter though) and the old kid's show Allegra's Castle (wasn't that her name?).
Tinsley* - Too made up/trendy sounding.
Scarlett - Love!
Freya/Freja- I don't like it at all but if you use it, I prefer Freya.
