    Girl's list :

    Abigail - love the nn Abby or Abbie

    Amelia - nms, makes me think "mealy-mouthed" for some weird reason

    Annabel - I like how you've chosen to spell it

    Ava - (husband's favourite) too trendy for me personally but nothing wrong with the name, makes me think of children's book author Avi

    Charlotte - (wife's favourite) pretty and soft sounding, also very popular

    Isabelle - where I'm from (US) this name and its variants are so popular that it turns me off a bit, but I love the sound of the name! Very poetic and flowy.

    Octavia - gorgeous. Also makes me think of Octavius nn Tavi from the fury books by Jim Butcher, a great association.

    Poppy - can't imagine on a grown woman (but then I am American). Also makes me think of opium, heroin, etc.

    Sarah - classic, pairs well in a sibset with Abigail

    Sophie - I feel the same way about this name as I do about Isabelle

    Zoe - spunky, with no nickname, spelling or pronunciation issues

    Boy's list :

    Alexander - nice strong classic name, pairs well in a sibset with Octavia

    Atticus - to me this is too hipster unless you can actually quote passages from To Kill a Mockingbird

    Cassius - distinguished and inspired choice, also Shakespearean.

    Ellis - would go well with your trendier picks such as Ava

    Emerson - nms, a very popular name for pets where I live

    Finley - (husband's favourite) I like the nn Finn but I think too cutesy for a grown man

    Noah - extremely popular where I live, but would go well with a sister named Sarah

    Oliver - nice but very popular; also brings to mind Cromwell which can be a not-so-good association for some

    River - did not expect this to be on your list. Kind of different from your other choices, might be hard to coordinate with siblings. But I like it.

    Simon - I'm sorry, all I can picture is the intellectual from Alvin and the Chipmunks

    Theo - (wife's favourite) very hipster, would be a good brother to Atticus. Do not pair him with Simon though (again with the chipmunks).

    So, for you I like Octavia and Cassius the best. Anyway, CONGRATULATIONS!

    PS if you have a moment can you pop over to my thread on the Girls forum? Much obliged.

    My husband thinks like you, he wants to remove Atticus from our list, I'm ok.
    Atticus is removed.
    And Amelia and Emerson. I've never liked these names at 100%, but they're my husband's choices ! I don't know if I want to keep them on the list or not ! And my husband will probably be against !

    I really really need help !

    Naming a baby is so difficult !
