    August - I love August, but for some reason and I'm sure some people will cringe when I say this, but I prefer it for girls.
    Brody - not my taste
    Christopher - a good classic, but not my taste. Also I'm pretty sure that even if you plan to have no nickname, Chris will be used as soon as they start school.
    David - another good classic, if I didn't know so many I'd probably consider it myself.
    Desmond - not a fan.
    Evander - not a fan
    Finlay - love the nn Finn, but prefer Finnegan to Finlay.
    Galen - would be wary of the having anything that sounds like 'gay' in a boys name, school kids can be nasty.
    Ivan - Don't like as it is the name of Australia's most notorious mass murderer.
    James - good strong classic
    Jared - not a fan
    Jordan - not a fan
    Leo - adore
    Liam - very, very popular here right now.
    Louis - cute
    Matthew - easy, popular classic
    Niall - not a fan
    Olivier - I prefer Oliver
    Paris - would be worried about the Paris Hilton connection, it'd take a very strong boy to pull this off through school.
    Romeo - swoon
    Tristan - nice
    Zane - I prefer Dane

    Amelia - pretty, but very popular here
    Annika - pretty
    Asha - love this name
    Audrey - very, very popular here
    Daisy - I like Daisy, not sure about the nn Daze
    Della - Pretty, but I'd prefer it if it were short for something, maybe Adelaide?
    Jade - pretty
    Jenna - not a fan
    Lake - I think of this as a boys name.
    Lilah - I prefer the spelling Lyla
    Mia - pretty, could also be a nn for Amelia
    Natalya - not a fan
    Olympia - gorgeous. Olly or Pia.
    Phaedra - very nice
    Piper - not a fan
    Summer - a guilty pleasure of mine
    Winter - so pretty

    @imogeneve Wow! Thanks for your response! About Galen: Yeah, I figured as much. It's more of a guilty pleasure than a name I would ever actually use. Maybe for a dog or something. lol And Paris: I forgot to add the NN for that one. Parry.

    Boys:
    August - I prefer Augustus, but August is nice as well. I think it's very handsome.
    Brody - not my style, but it's not terrible
    Christopher - I prefer Christian, but I know it's not everyone's style. Christopher is nice though. I like the nicknames Chris, Topher, and Kit. It would depend on each person which one would work best.
    David - never been a fan of as I find it kind of boring
    Desmond - not my style, but not bad
    Evander - love this! It's grown on me a lot recently. Evan is a cute nickname.
    Finlay - If you want the nn Finn I prefer Finnick. Finley would be a better spelling in my opinion.
    Ivan - not my style, but not bad
    James - love! especially as a middle name. This is my favorite boy name of all time with Henry being a close second
    Jared - love! And surprising not as popular as David, William, Joshua, etc. Really underrated
    Jordan - this is actually one of the few names I despise, but that's my personal taste. I know tons of people who like tihs name
    Leo - love! I love it as a nickname to Leonardo and Leonidias among others or just on it's own
    Liam - adore this name! I have found it goes with a lot of names. Liam Patrick has been on my list forever.
    Louis - cute, but not really my style, although I would love to meet a Louis. (Especially if his last name is Tomlinson )
    Matthew - kind of boring to me, but it's not terrible. I adore Matthias though. Or Matteo.
    Niall - too One Direction for me. I have a feeling this name is going to SOAR among teen moms in the next couple of years
    Olivier - pretty adorable
    Paris - not a fan for a boy OR a girl
    Romeo - not my style, but I like it. I would be refreshing to hear a Romeo now a days
    Tristan - absolutely LOVE! I think it's so handsome. I have Tristan Roy on my list (Roy is after my grandfather) and my mom loves it as well
    Zane - cool without being trendy, at least to me. I think it would make a great middle name. I also love Lane.

    Girls:
    Amelia - adore! I love Mia and Amy as a nickname. I was never fond of Amy, but Doctor Who changed that
    Annika - not my style, but it's not horrible
    Asha - love! I can't help but think of Asha Greyjoy from Game of Thrones. <3
    Audrey - adore this much more than Aubrey. Good choice.
    Daisy - a little too cutesy for me, but would be a nice middle name
    Della - not my style, but not terrible. Sounds a bit dated though, even though I've never heard of it
    Jade - I don't mind it as a middle name, but it doesn't wow me at all
    Jenna - adore! Hard to come up with combos though...
    Lola - cute
    Lilah - not my style, but pretty
    Mia - i prefer it as a nickname to Amelia
    Natalya - I prefer Natalia. Pretty name
    Olympia - not my style, but it's kind of cool. I'd love to meet an Olympia
    Phaedra - not my style, but I don't hate it
    Piper - I go back and forth with this name. Sometimes I love it and sometimes it's just meh to me. I prefer it as a middle name
    Summer - not my style, but I don't hate it
    Susannah - not my style
    Winter - ehh I think the time for Winter has come and gone. I would advise going against both Summer and Winter in the future though.
