    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, Eden
    Boy: Leo, Wallace, Grady

    Mommy to one sweet little boy who I loved naming Lennox Andrew Michael (Lex for short)

    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.

    Autumn, Summer, Winter, Clover - Like these a lot. My favorite is Winter.
    Mirabelle - Love. So pretty and lovely meaning.
    Addison - Not a fan of this on a girl. And names of the Madison/Addison ilk are feeling really overdone.
    Copeland/Sutton - To brusque for first names, especially for a girl.
    Rosaline - I would like it better if it was Rosalie or Rosalind.
    Arizona - LOVE
    Arabella, Cecilia, Eve, Juliet, Calla. Savannah - All lovely names.
    Alaska, Atlanta, Catalina, Alba - They're okay. I'm neutral.
    Alyssa - Pretty.
    Venessa - Not a fan.
    Belle, Anya, Gwen - Perfectly fine, but not something I'm a fan of necessarily. I like Belle as a middle.
    Nova - Not a fan.
    Jordan - Don't like it on a girl.
    Sophie - LOVE
    Clementine - I want to like it, but I associate it with the song, which makes it unusable for me.
    Alva, Aviana, Thea - Don't care for any of these.
    Lennox - Too masculine
    Cosette, Eponine - Love Cosette, can't stand Eponine
    Aria - I don't understand the love for this name.

    Casper - Love.
    Reeve, Finn, Trevor, Connor - Neutral
    Rebel, Cricket - No. Just no.
    Christopher - One of my favorite names for a boy. Love it so so much.
    Avery - LOVE
    Lucas, Jackson - Handsome names
    Ransom - Love. As a Christian, I attach more meaning to this name than others probably do. Also, it has a dash of cowboy panache, which I really dig.
    Isaac, Asa - Both strong names.
    Cain - I love the sound, but I would go with Kane, which has a totally different meaning and doesn't have the Cain and Abel baggage.
    Hayden - This is a perfectly good name that gets overwhelmed by the Aiden/Jayden epidemic.
    Alfie, Harold - Not a fan.
    River - Like this one a good bit.
    Rhys, Hudson - Love these.
    Silas ~ Gideon ~ Lincoln ~ Ezekiel ~ Malachi ~ Samuel ~ Ezra ~ Charlie ~ Gabriel ~ Elliott
    Maisie ~ Sophie ~ Naomi ~ Willa ~ Evangeline ~ Freya ~ Vivienne ~ Nora ~ Josephine ~ Daphne
