    Style Mismatch?

    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?

    Thanks!
    Chelle

    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
    William ♠ Thomas ♠ Peter ♠ Henry ~ Rose ♠ Alice ♠ Ivy ♠ Lowenna
    Mowesi ~ Henwyn Kernewek ~ Mebyon

    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.

    I agree. The style-differences in your names aren't big enough to cause a problem.
