    Girls:
    Autumn - love as a middle
    Summer - Don't like
    Mirabelle - this is a sweet name, but I'm not sure I'd use it on an actual child. It seems more like a dolls name
    Addison - don't like
    Copeland - don't like
    Rosaline - I generally love Rosa-names, but this one just doesn't do it for me
    Arizona - don't like
    Arabella - Like! Much better than Mirabelle too
    Cecilia - Well, I got this as middlename and I gotta say I find it uninspiring
    Eve - I prefer Eva, but both are very pretty and usable
    Juliet - Not a fan
    Calla - Don't like
    Alaska - don't like
    Alyssa - Reminds me of Silent Hill
    Venessa - I like Vanessa, but Venessa looks misspelled or like a misspelled Venetia
    Belle - Not a fan
    Anya - Don't like
    Gwen - Like!
    Nova - Great name! I love this and would consider using myself
    Jordan - Reminds me of Katie Price, which is a negative of me

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

    I like simple yet versatile names that work well for the athlete, the comic, the genius, and the judge.

    The girls names I love, with scattered comments:

    Rosaline
    Arabella- I love this name, but, as others have pointed out, it’s really trendy right now.
    Cecilia- Very pretty. Also love Celia.
    Winter
    Belle- I tend to call my daughter this. Beautiful and simple
    Anya
    Sophie- So sweet, and I think it would age well in spite of it sounding so young.
    Thea
    Aria- I love this name, particularly because of its musical meaning.
    Eve
    Juliet
    Calla

    The rest aren’t bad names, just simply not my style. The only one I’d really question is Copeland and Alva. Beware that Alva sounds similar to a body part. Copeland just seems odd, even as a unisex option. For the boys, I love:

    Casper
    Finn
    Lucas
    Asa
    Alfie
    Rhys

    The only two I really don’t care for are Rebel and Ransom. Rebel is too southern (US southern) for me to really get on board, and Ransom just doesn’t have the greatest connotation.
    Current loves: Theodore & Rosalind

    Mommy to Arabella and Jude
