    Suggest boys names based on my girls list!

    I'm half-way through my pregnancy and I'm starting to stress about boy names. I just have no clue - I have a rough list but nothing feels like "the one". I'm starting to wonder if I'll ever find anything that I truly love. I adore so many girls names... but boys names just aren't my thing! Please help!

    I'm looking for something that is strong and soft at the same time - does such a name exist? I want a bit of romance, history, magic... something that feels earthy...perhaps a vague nature reference, but nothing too literal (no Cedar, Birch etc).

    Here's my girls list to give you an idea of my (rather eclectic) taste in names.

    Marguerite (our front-runner for a girl)
    Opal
    Clementine
    Honora
    Viola
    Eulalie
    Ophelia
    Flora

    And here's my current boys list:
    Caspian (probably my most favourite but still feels lacking...)
    Augustin
    Ives
    Magnus
    Emrys
    Arthur
    Winston
    Oberon
    Tennyson
    Oisin

    Please feel free to critique and offer suggestions! Thanks!

    I think your boys names are wonderful, I especially love Emrys, Arthur, and Tennyson. What about: Brooks, Brookfield, Elven, Devon, Peregrine, Percival, Gwaine, Elyan, Fox, Roland, River, Weston, Orion, Cassiday, Melark / Malark, Thayne, North, Jupiter? You've got very individual taste so I apologize if none of my suggested names fit your bill.

    I love your naming style - Marguerite, Viola and Ophelia are all on my short list, Clementine is a massive guilty pleasure name and Flora is so simple and sweet!

    Caspian - feels a bit Narnia to me but very handsome nonetheless
    Augustin - I would prefer just August, especially with your girl's names
    Ives - hmm, I have never heard Ives before (apart from the Cornish town), but I'm quite liking it! I do love Ivo though...
    Magnus - reminds me of champagne and ice-cream (Magnum); do you like Rufus or Fergus?
    Emrys - very Welsh, but sweet
    Arthur - a friend's cousin recently named her little boy Arthur - I love it!
    Winston - Churchill...not really my style
    Oberon - too Midsummer Night's Dream for me
    Tennyson - I love Lord Tennyson's poetry, but prefer Alfred
    Oisin - not quite sure how to pronounce but looks very handsome

    Here are some others that you might like - sorry if too old-manny but I love (most of) them:

    Benedict
    Benjamin
    Bram
    Caspar
    Castor
    Cassian
    Clifford
    Corrin/Corin
    Edric
    Edwin
    Frederick
    Gus (or as nickname for Augustin/August or Magnus/Rufus/Fergus)
    Harvey
    Hector
    Julian
    Julius
    Patrick
    Percy
    Ranulph
    Sebastian
    Walter

    Good luck!
