    These are the ones that really stood out to me:

    Roscoe
    Dashiel
    Torrin
    Archer
    Jade - would love to see this on a boy.
    Calvin
    Hugo
    Thaddeus
    Alaric
    Gideon
    Maxwell

    I think Calvin and Hugo would make really cool brothers.

    Annika
    Liesl
    Miriam
    Roselind
    Artemis
    Gwendolyn
    Gwenyth
    Penelope
    Persephone

    Gwendolyn and Penelope would make great sisters, IMO.

    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.


    Girl:

    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!

    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!
