Hello all you lovely Berries!
I've finally got round to putting something in my signature and I realised that my boys' names and girls' names seem to follow different styles.
By looking at the names in my sig, do you think this is the case?
What boy/girl names would you put together for brothers and sisters?
Can you suggest some boys' names similar in style to my girls' names or vise versa?

I see several different styles here, with crossovers, but they mesh fairly well together (except Roderick, but that's probably just me):
Classic/Vintage: Catherine, Eve, Clara, Faye, Alexandra, Patrick
Classical: Cassandra, Julia, Dominic
Fresh/Modern: Finn, Lena, Eve, Fraser
Irish/Scottish: Patrick, Ciaran, Finn, Blair, Fraser, Struan
Dated: Roderick, Christina
So, for suggestions:
Classic/Vintage: Anne, George, Edward, Arthur, Joseph, William, Lucy, Alice
Classical: Julian, Seraphine, Vincent, Gregory, Maximus, Augusta, Cecilia, Fabian, Cordelia, Lydia, Oliver
Fresh/Modern: Dexter, Poppy, Amber, Lara, Archer, Leo, Evan, Hugo, Beau
Irish/Scottish: Stuart, Alastair, Isla, Angus, Finlay, Aidan, Hamish, Kerry, Maeve, Liam, Ronan, Ewan, Fiona
Dated: Desmond, Susan, Patricia, Kenneth, Stephen, Graham, Pamela

I don't think they're different styles at all! Most of them are versatile enough to go together, IMO. I also think it's less of an issue when your girls' names and boys' names are a slight mismatch---boys' names tend to be more conservative in general, so it's not really noticeable unless you're a name nerd.Gwen
