Billie - Not my style, but cute enough.
Edith - Too old lady-ish for my tastes, though it doesn't repulse me like it used to. Downton Abbey could facilitate its comeback.
Emma - Classic and pretty but too popular.
Eve - Lovely middle name, though I wouldn't use it as a first.
Flora - Seems fit for a fairy or a princess (maybe a fairy princess?), but it's a beautiful, elegant name.
Francine - Reminds me of "Arthur", the children's show. A very average name, in my opinion.
Guinevere - Again, has a very fantasy vibe. Pretty, though.
Josephine - Stunning and timeless.
Leah - A bit dated, but okay.
Luna - I can't quite get over the Harry Potter reference, but it's a solid, interesting name.
Margaret - Simple but charming.
Margot - Margaret's fresher cousin. Love this one!
Mila - Lovely. Short and sweet, it rolls off the tongue. The gorgeous Mila Kunis seems to be helping this one.
Penelope - Yet another pop culture reference (baby Kardashian). This one's actually growing on me--great rhythm to it.
Aiden - Ehh. Nothing special about it.
Charlie - Like it as a nickname for Charles.
Cormac - Love! Strong and unique.
Darcy - Okay, but a bit on the feminine side.
Declan - One of my recent favorites. Uncommon but not unheard of, it strikes the perfect balance.
Elliot - Respectable, sophisticated, historic.
Emory - Not a favorite, but there's nothing wrong with it.
Everly - Again, seems a bit feminine.
Finn - A former favorite of mine, though Glee's ruined it somewhat for me. I prefer Flynn.
Gaetano - Not familiar with this one. A little out there.
Gordon - Okay. More of a last name to me.
Gorky - What?
Isaac - Never been crazy about this one, but it's nice enough.
Leo - Love it! By itself or as a nickname, Leo shines.
Lucas - A tad boring, but fine.
Lukas - Same as Lucas. Indifferent about the 'k'.
Max - Love, though I prefer it as a nickname. Such a sturdy name.
Michael - No thanks.
Ryan - Not interesting enough.
Seneca - Now that's something different.
Viggo - Compelling, though I wouldn't use it myself.

Billie- hate boy names on girls. Okay if used as a nickname for a feminine name- Belinda, Wilhelmina, etc.
Edith- too old lady
Emma- nice, but on the boring side
Flora- like, very sweet
Francine- sounds frumpy to me
Guinevere- This is a one-person name to me
Josephine- boring and too old lady
Leah- I like it, but unfortunately the first reference that comes to mind is Amber's daughter on Teen Mom.
Luna- not a fan at all.
Margaret- I like the nicknames more than the full name, but would never use the nicknames on their own
Willa- very sweet, this name has been growing on me
Aiden- I have liked it spelled Aidan for a looooong time now. I strongly dislike the trendy -en spelling.
Charlie- Cute nn, not good as a full name.
Cormac- Love! On my list
Darcy- LOVE! Would be on my list if DH did not hate a guy named Darcy. I went to HS with 3 male Darcys and it's not at all uncommon for guys where I'm from so I see it as primarily male name.
Declan-like, but becoming too trendy for me.
Emory- Meh, fine
Everly- Too girly
Finn- Love Finlay, but Finn seems really trendy to me.
Gaetano- Love Gaetan (French), if I had any Italian heritage I could go for this
Isaac- Meh, fine
Leo- Meh, fine
Lucas- Solid but a bit on the dull side for me
Lukas- This legit spelling variant makes it a bit less boring for me.
Max- Meh, fine
Michael- Meh, fine
Ryan- A modern classic that I love
Seneca- I think of the native tribe before the Roman reference, so it feels too cultural appropriation-ish for me to be used as a first name.
Viggo- I'd assume any non-Scandinavian who used it was an uber Viggo Mortenson fan
I find the boy list much more interesting and appealing than the girls.Gareth: 05.2012
