Summer- though I'd only use it for a middle name
Mirabelle- so girly and pretty
Cecilia- I prefer Cecelia, but I seem to be the only one so...
Sophie- a bit too trendy right now, but I still love it
Thea- just perfect. I especially like it as a nn for Theodora, but its fine on its own
Cosette- so girly and love the Les Miserables connection
Aria- trendy but I loved it before it became trendy
Connor- I've always liked Connor, its masculine and will grow with the child
Lucas- love it
Rhys- so cool and I love the spelling
These ones are okay:
Addison- too trendy and I don't like -son names for girls
Rosaline- its pretty but I prefer Rosalie
Arabella- its pretty but its not my style
Juliet- I just can't get over how stupid the character was in the play. The name is pretty but because of the play I can't do it
Calla- I like it, and I like Calla Lilies but I'm not sure I love it for a name
Alyssa- I used to really like this one, but now its just okay. I've found names I like much much more.
Eve- I think this one is overrated. And Idk I wouldn't want to be named after the woman who screwed the whole world over.
Belle- Its okay, but I can't get over the Disney princess
Gwen- its okay, a bit nicknamey but...
Nova- We have a college nicknamed Nova near us, which my brother was going to last year, so that's what it makes me think of.
Catalina- its okay, nothing special
Savannah- I used to really like this name, but now I don't like it that much anymore
Clementine- I think this one is overrated too. It makes me think of fruit
Winter- I prefer Summer and Autumn over Winter as far a season names go, but its okay
Autumn- I like Summer more than Autumn as a name, but I think its still pretty
Finn- overrated and trendy, but its okay
Trevor- I like this one, its a bit nerdy but its cute
Avery- Nothing special. Plus I know boys and girls named Avery, and I prefer names that are either really masculine or feminine
Jackson- trendy, I know quite a few Jacksons
Isaac- Trendy for a biblical name, its just okay and the meaning rocks.
Hayden- sounds trendy right now, and I know a few Haydens that are older than me. One has Down syndrome so that's what I think of.
Asa- Its not really masculine and I worry that someone would say Ass-a
Alfie- I think its a cute nn, but not on its own
The other ones I really didn't like.Just another teenberry and creative writer, a lover of names
Zoe, Calista, Isadora/Isidora, Veronica, Selene, Thalia, Alice, Evangeline, Jane, & Willa
Gregory, Dimitri, Tobias, Jason, Charles, Jude, James, Joshua, Jasper, & Orion
Tessa, Cassandra, Magdalena, Amelia, Genevieve, Dorothea, Althea, Persephone, Penelope, Selena, Amelie, & Artemis

Autumn - It's okay, not a favorite.
Summer - I can tolerate it. Autumn is better.
Mirabelle - Miralax.
Addison - All the -son names are so masculine. I don't get why people use them for their daughters.
Copeland - This is a girl?
Rosaline - Sounds gothic to me, not sure why.
Arizona - No. I don't care for place names as given names in general, but this one is extra bad.
Arabella - I don't understand why I've heard this name so much on nameberry. It sounds fake, like the name of an elf in fantasy novel or something, not a good name for a real child.
Cecilia - I think this is old-fashioned in a stylish and pretty way. I wouldn't use it personally, but I think it's nice.
Eve - Again, I wouldn't use it, but it's nice.
Juliet - It's pretty, but I don't like the association.
Calla - The flower is prettier than the name.
Alaska - See Arizona.
Alyssa - I think of Alyssa Milano. This name is not my style.
Venessa - I think the correct spelling is Vanessa. Also not my style.
Belle - My favorite Disney princess! I wouldn't use this name for a child, though.
Anya - I like this name. It's unusual, but not crazy obscure.
Gwen - I <3 this name a lot!
Nova - No go.
Jordan - This is a masculine name. And not even a very good one.
Catalina - This is an alright name. Again, not my taste, but I approve of it for other people.
Atlanta - See Arizona and Alaska.
Sophie - I like this name. Classic and cute. It has become so popular, though.
Savannah - Strongly dislike.
Clementine - I actually adore this name. A guilty pleasure.
Alva - I don't know.
Aviana (Avis) - I'm tired of all the -ana and -elle names.
Thea - I don't know.
Lennox - Makes me think of Mary Lennox, the main character for the Secret Garden. This is a surname, not a first name.
Cosette - This name is alright for other people.
Eponine - This is too out there for me.
Aria - I strongly dislike this name. I can't understand the appeal.
Sutton - Another surname. I don't like last names as first names, especially for girls.
Winter - Of the season names, this is less usable than Autumn and Summer. More usable than Spring, though!
Clover - My BFF used this as her daughter's middle name. It's cute, but not for a real person. Sorry, bestie!
Alba - I don't know.
Casper - I actually really like this name, but I would never even dream of using it.
Reeve - Nah.
Christopher - I like it. It's very common, though. Not very special.
Finn - I like it, but I think it's a little overrated and overused.
Trevor - I have never been a fan of this name. There's nothing wrong with it per se, I just don't like the sound.
Rebel - Is that really what you want your child to be?
Connor - See Trevor.
Avery - I think it's okay, but you might want to think twice using it for a boy these days. It's becoming popular for little girls.
Lucas - Nice name. I wouldn't use it myself, but I definitely like it for other people.
Ransom - No.
Jackson - Not a fan. It's a last name. Jack is okay, though.
Isaac - It's okay.
Cain - Not a great association. Also, it sounds like the word cane.
Hayden - I stear clear of -den names (Aiden, Jayden, Brayden, etc.) Overused and overrated.
Asa - I don't know.
Alfie - It's sort of comical.
Harold - Old-fashioned. I actually really like the nickname Hal, though.
River - I accept this as a name about as much as I accept Summer and Winter.
Cricket - You probably shouldn't name your kid after a bug. It could be cute nickname though, for the right boy.
Rhys - Not crazy about this one. I just don't care for the sound.
Hudson - Another last name. Not a fan.

Autumn, Summer & Winter: Out of all the months and seasons; these are my least favorite. I prefer August/Augusta/Augustus out of all of them.
Mirabelle, Arabella, Rosaline, Belle: All these have similarities to each other. All of them are girly and cute.
Addison: Can't stand it. Very boring
Copeland & Sutton: Both are last names, but are still very cute!
Arizona, Alaska, & Atlanta: State and city names aren't original and just terrible. Sorry!
Eve: Oldest name in the good book! Lol! But very pretty. Definitely would consider using for my own.
Juliet & Cosette: Both of these names are both on my absolute favorites list. I love them even though I would spell Cosette as Cozette.
