    Honestly, a lot of the names I love, I love because of characters or people I admire (Such as Carlisle/Carlyle and even Helena - which I used to hate - is growing on me). Also, I fall in love with names because of my characters (Celia, Briony, Cora, Annabel, Brigitta, Victoria, Oscar, etc.). I've started to love Miriam recently because of the adorable little girl in the creche I worked in.
    Girls:

    Celia Odette ~ Georgiana Adele ~ Cosette Rosaline ~ Luna Mirabelle ~ Molly Josephine ~ Alora Juliette ~ Belle Seraphina ~ Katia Rose ~ Elizabeth Lucy ~ Gisela Bay

    Boys:

    Henry Carlisle ~ Cedric Alexander ~ Oliver Vincent ~ Arthur Kingsley ~ Caspian North ~ Ashley Pierce ~ Oisín Elliot ~ Peter Edmund ~ Spencer Bennet ~ Fionn Emmett
