Waverley- I prefer this name spelled Waverly. I don't care for the sound, but I love the meaning.
Wren- Of all the bird names, this might be my favorite. It's lovely without being too cute.
Charlotte nn Lottie- Gorgeous, of course!
Penelope- I don't understand the appeal of this name at all.
Amelie nn Ellie- Quite sweet, however I'm sure it will be mistaken for Emily all the time.
Isla / Isra (Eye-ruh)- Gorgeous! Isra is identical to Ira, which I hate.
Maeve- Oh, so pretty! Makes Mae feel fuller and less plain.
Elizabeth- Absolutely beautiful! I LOVE the nn Libby.
Lucy- Eh. Plain, however I adore Luciana.
Matilda- See Penelope.
Audrey nn Ree- Very cute!
Josephine nn Josie- I like Josephine, but Josie isn't very pretty. I think JoJo is so cute, though!
Mila (mee-luh)- I prefer Milena, but Mila is lovely too! The Kunis association is a plus.
Adeline (add-uh-line)- I love this, but to be more unique I prefer Adelise (add-uh-lees).
Paloma- Quite lovely!
Caroline- A pretty classic! Reminds me of a smart businesswoman.
Margaret nn Maisie- Nice, but not really fabulous.
Delilah- Love it! So pretty!
Madeleine- Such a swet, lovely name.
Hanna- I think it looks a little odd without the -h. Nice name, though.
Elowen- Very pretty, with a melodic, lilting sound.
Mairead- This name will guarantee LOTS of mispronunciations.
Rhys- I like this a lot!
Gaelan- Sounds like something from an Arthurian Legend, like Sir Gaelan. A little too dramatic.
Kieran- I think this is a little feminine because it sounds so similar to Karen.
Declan- This is a really handsome name!

Waverley - nms, and seems a bit trendy. I think it's better when spelled without that second E - it looks more streamlined and neater as Waverly
Wren - I actually really like this for a boy...I guess it's okay for a girl.
Charlotte nn Lottie - So cute! I know Charlotte is getting quite popular, though.
Penelope - Nice, but also getting more popular
Amelie nn Ellie - I like it, but think people will always hear "Emily"
Isla / Isra (Eye-ruh) - Isla is pretty, Isra = Ira, so that's no good for a girl, imo.
Maeve - I've never liked this, seems like an old lady name to me, but I know many Berries like it.
Elizabeth - Nice and classic.
Lucy - I love it. A bit popular, though. My favorite name combo of all time is Lucy Clementine
Matilda - ADORE. One of my absolute favorites.
Audrey nn Ree - Audrey is okay...I don't love the sound, but I love Audrey Hepburn, so that's a good association. Not loving Ree.
Josephine nn Josie - I don't love Josie, but I love Josephine.
Mila (mee-luh) - Prefer it pronounced MY-la, but I know that's not usually how it is.
Adeline (add-uh-line) - Probably what our baby will be if she's a girl - LOVE.
Paloma - I like it! Wish my husband did, too.
Elodie - I think the French pronunciation is nice, but I don't really like it when it just rhymes with Melody.
Caroline - Classic, but I've never been a big fan.
Margaret nn Maisie - Same as Caroline.
Delilah - It's okay.
Madeleine - Lovely, but only if pronounced mad-a-line, NOT lin.
Hanna - It's okay..nothing too exciting. Prefer it with the final H.
Elowen - Pretty.
Mairead - Not sure of the pronunciation, and I think that would be a problem (at least in the US).
and for boys:
Rhys - Don't like it...looks and sounds incomplete and insubstantial to me.
Gaelan - It's sad, but I think there could be teasing potential here, unfortunately.
Sawyer - Seems pretty trendy to me.
Kieran - I like it, pronounced KEER-an. Maybe a bit popular now?
Declan - Nothing wrong with it, just nms.Current Favorites
