Just looking for opinions, middle name/sibling combos, and any suggestions you might have. :) Any untraditional spellings are intentional.
Renne (pronounced like Wren)

These are the ones that really stood out to me:
Jade - would love to see this on a boy.
I think Calvin and Hugo would make really cool brothers.
Gwendolyn and Penelope would make great sisters, IMO.

Roselind (I vastly prefer the Rosalind spelling)
I think Matilda and Helena would be a lovely pair or Sebastian and Oliver.
I also love Gideon and Lydia, Ezekiel and Oliver, Gwendolyn and Oliver, and Genevieve and Sebastian.Girls- Winter, Eden, Colette, River, Charlotte.
Boys- Atticus, Eliot, Milo, Gideon, Malcolm.

Roscoe - Pretty cool name, especially the nicknames Ros or Roe. Would make a very unique kid.
Torrin - Like this one too. The only problem I see is if he ended up with the nickname Torri, which I really hate on guys.
Eugene - Shabby chic? Sophisticated? Ironic? Whichever it is, it's a revival of an old name and I like that. I know a kid in my stage tech class named Eugene. Everyone just calls him E.J.
Sebastian - Always loved this name. Some say its pretentious, but I always thought of it as adventurous and unique.
Oliver - Always liked this one too, even though my name is Olivia. It also means elf ruler and that's rad.
Court - Do NOT name a boy Court or Courtney in this day and age. They will be bullied. I've seen it happen.
Ezekiel - Very cute. Zeke is adorable, and very unique.
Archer - Cute!
Jack - I like it, but now that its gotten revived, they're all over the place! Especially Jackson or Jaxon.
Bruce - Very cute when a little boy, manly when he's older. I love oo sounding names!
Bruno - Same goes with this one!
Jade - Not sure how I feel about this on a boy, but I guess he could be called Jay.
Hugo - See Bruce!
Thaddeus - I know a kid with this name. He's chubby and dumpy, and that's all I can see when I hear this name. :/
Alaric - Very cool, except I'm not fond of nicknames Al or Rick. Would be a cool sibling to an Oliver.
Gideon - Love this name. I could see a knight being named this!
Maxwell - Very cute, very traditional. I adore the nickname Max more than Maxwell, though.
Vincent - I've never been particularly fond of this name, but its old and being revived, which I can appreciate.
Annika - Very chic twist to Anne.
Summer - Warm and sweet.
Elouise - Cute, since I love Lou. Nickname could be Ellie or Lou!
Louise - Same!
Liesl - I actually don't like this... I didn't know how to pronounce it.
Miriam - I like the nickname Miri better than the actual name.
Roselind - Beautiful, but becoming popular again.
Helena - Strong and feminine; my type of name!
Artemis - Same as Helena, but with an other-wordly, awesome history!
Casady - Interesting spin on the spelling, but would often be misspelled.
Lyra - My brother loves this name. I think its beautiful.
Lydia - Very pretty, but I see this a lot in Nebraska. A coworker of mine was named this, and it got confusing since it sounds like Olivia!
Matilda - Very cute. Tilly is a nickname I prefer over Mattie.
Renne (pronounced like Wren) - Why not just Wren or Wrenne, then? I love Wren.
Lorain - Blaaarrgggaa. I like the nickname Rain better.
Genevieve - Beautiful and classic; I've always loved it with Josephine.
Gwendolyn - Beautiful and classic, except I could see a beautiful elf named this (love that!)
Gwenyth - Same!!
Penelope - Cute and quirky. Penny or Nell are adorable nicknames.
Persephone - Took me a bit to end up liking this. Very quirky but also with an awesome history!aurora- autumn- ashwyn- bambi- bernadette- calliope- emmalou- henriette- indigo- ione- january- lark- leela- llewellyn- lydia- marnie- molly- narnia- noelle- oralee- penelope- philomena- rain- raven- roxy- ruby- snow- tessa- thora- waverly- willow- winter- wren- zoe | abel- aesop- angus- banjo- bartholomew- bear- bruce- burkley- darwin- elliot- finn- flynn- foster- henry- indigo - knox - laszlo - lyle - navy - nemo - noah - otis - oakley - rainn - thatcher - thomas - thompson - titus - zen

I used the spelling Roselind because I'd pronounce it ROSE-lind, not Ros-a-lind.
And I didn't even think of the Courtney association for Court! I always thought of it like a king's court, or in that sort of context. Thanks for pointing it out!
Liesl is pronounced LEE-zul, with the u practically not there. LEE-zl. It's from The Sound of Music, one of my favorite movies.
With Renne, I picked this spelling because I don't like the way Ws look, and Ren wasn't feminine enough. I'm weird, haha.
I really like all the sibsets and combos mentioned! Super cute.
Any more input would be greatly appreciated!
