Tossing around a few names
We just started trying for #7, so it's time for name-hunting! We have a great list already, but we're tossing around a few names that we haven't talked a lot about during the last pregnancies. How are these names perceived? Yay or nay? Would they fit in our sibset (see signature)?
Thanks, berries!Mama to Edward ('02), Adelaide ('05), Isaac ('06), Oliver ('10), twins Sebastian & Eleanor ('11)

To go with Edward, Adelaide, Isaac, Oliver, Sebastian & Eleanor:
Hugo- Yes! Works great with your sibset. And if a great name.
Tobias- No. Never liked this name. Plus it feels too heavily Biblical to go along with your sibset.
Morgan- No. Feels too casual with your sibset. And I'm not a fan in general.
Finn- No. Again feels too casual with your sibset. I like Finn as a nickname, but I don't think any of the longer Finn names (Finley, Phineas, Finnian, Finnegan) really fit your sibset that well either.
Flynn- I like this name, but again feels too casual with your current sibset.
Xavier- I think this would be a really great choice. Awesome name.
Roman- Not a fan.
Spencer- It's a mediocre name, but again doesn't feel like it fits your sibset very well.
Leighton- No. Dislike it strongly.
Emmanuel- I think this would be a very great option.
Adrian- This would be a really great option.
Raphael- I really really like this name a lot. I don't know if it fits your sibset as perfectly as Hugo or Xavier, but not crazy outside.
Elias- I like it, but a third E name may not be the best idea it seems to me.
Rafferty- I like it, but doesn't fit your sibset particularly well.
Casper- I'd prefer Jasper. But good choice.
Linus- I like it, but it doesn't fit your sibset particularly well.
Crispin- I like it a lot, again doesn't quite fit your sibset as well as Hugo or Xavier, but definitely could work.
Personally, I'd keep:
Casper (Jasper) (Jasper would be my overall favorite stand alone name here, but that's not actually on your list)
Raphael (Raphael and Emmanuel are probably my two favorite stand-alone names (aside from my Jasper addition) from your list)
Hugo (not my favorite stand-alone from your list, but I think it'd fit your sibset with absolute perfection, and it's a great name)Updated Name List- http://www.ebabynames.com/list/eff115- Vote away...
