    I see positive aspects to all of them except Arizona and Alaska. The American trend of state-naming babies seems confusing to those of us outside the US. I can't imagine naming my child Ontario or Saskatchewan.

    Of note to me: Lennox is my settled upon boy name. DH and I are having an impossible time coming up with a girls name and have started contemplating Lennox whether bebe is a boy OR a girl. Glad to see another person who sees the surname name as possible on a woman.
    Latest list:

    Girl: Lulu, Charlie, Fleur, France, Holiday
    Boy: Lennox (Lex), Hugo

    Expecting my first.

    I love Lennox for a girl! (Or boy!)

    I also don't get the state-name trend, either within the US or elsewhere. Good news is that most of these are perfectly good, usable names. There are a few I'd reject though:

    Lennox & Copeland - sound male, and I dislike surnames as first names
    Venessa - will always be misspelt as Vanessa
    Eponine - sounds like a drug
    Sutton - again, with the surnames thing. Also it makes me think of mutton.
    Clover - cow and brand name to me

    Ransom & Rebel - just no. These two (along with Maverick, Gunner, Blade and the rest of the violent bunch) I personally find completely ridiculous.
    Cain - the murderer?
    Jackson & Hudson - surnames again
    Hayden - Brayden, Zayden, Kayden, Aiden, Ayden, Aden, Aedyn... I'm getting a bit sick of them now
    River - I always find this a little odd as a FN because it makes the whole name sound like an actual river.
    Cricket - totally can't understand this as a name. Would you name your kid Football, Rugby or Golf?!

    Sorry if I've been a little harsh. Just being honest
    William ♠ Thomas ♠ Peter ♠ Henry ~ Rose ♠ Alice ♠ Ivy ♠ Lowenna
    Mowesi ~ Henwyn Kernewek ~ Mebyon

    Girls:
    Autumn- I like this, but there's something about it that keeps me from loving it. Maybe it's the lack of easy nicknames? You might also like Auden.
    Summer- I prefer Autumn.
    Addison- I don't like -son names for girls.
    Copeland- this seems very last namey. I really can't picture it as a first for either gender.
    Rosaline, Alva,- I'm neutral on these.
    Arizona, Alaska, Atlanta- Georgia and Virginia are the only names in this genre I don't mind. These I think are a bit odd.
    Mirabelle, Arabella, Cecilia, Eve, Juliet, Calla, Belle, Thea, Aria- I love these.
    Clementine- I've never understood this.
    Alyssa- A bit dated.
    Venessa- also dated, and why an "e"?
    Lennox- A bit masculine, though I don't care for it on a boy either.
    Anya, Catalina, Sophie- I like these.
    Jordan, Savannah, Aviana- These are all quite trendy, but I LOVE Avis.
    Nova- I love this, and I love the association with "supernova." Supernovas are often described as the death of a star, but the explosion is what creates all elements, including the ones making up human beings- pretty cool!
    Cosette, Eponine- Way too Les Mis, and Eponine was invented by Victor Hugo to be a trashy-sounding name.
    Winter, Clover- I want to like these, but they're just too tied to the words and I don't think they'd age well.


    Top picks: Avis, Nova, Mirabelle, Cecilia, Calla

    Isaac, Rhys, Hudson Finn- I like
    Christopher, Connor, Lucas, Jackson, Hayden- I'm neutral on these.
    Casper I think is too ghostly, River and Cricket too naturey, and Rebel and Ransom too dangerous to use.
    Top picks: Rhys, Isaac, and Finn.
