    Your opinions on these names....

    I am struggling to decide what three names (two girls and one boy), I should add to my list - names already on my list are posted below in my signature. Arlo is also on that list.

    What do you think of these names and which names would you add to the list?

    Mabel
    Millicent
    Charlotte
    Edith
    Agnes
    Mary
    Maud
    Wilhelmina
    Josephine

    Millicent, Charlotee, Edith, Agnes, Wilhelmina and Josephine have been on the list before. I'm not 100% sure on Wilhelmina or Josephine.

    Albert
    Hector
    Arthur
    Theodore
    Rufus
    Archibald - the name of my black axolotl...
    Hugo
    Atticus

    Hector, Theodore, Hugo and Atticus have been on the list before. I'm not 100% sure on Arthur, Theodore, Rufus or Archibald. Boys names are hard for me.

    Thank you in advance

    Mabel- I love this name. Its darling but also down to earth. I use that word a lot...
    Millicent- It sounds so harsh to me. The nickname Millie would soften it, though.
    Charlotte- I think its a nice middle name, but I personally am tired of seeing it as a first, though I do like the thought of the nn Charley.
    Edith- Kind of harsh, like Millicent, but without a softening nickname.
    Agnes- I love this name. Its very bookish, spart, chic, and strong; its akin to Sylvia for me, both names I enjoy.
    Mary- I actually like this name. All the Mary's I met were super sweet. I also love Rosemary or Rosemarie.
    Maud- Same as Edith.
    Wilhelmina- Its very interesting, a lot of weight to it, but I think the nickname Willa is worth it.
    Josephine- Love this name as a whole. I don't like possible nn's Josie or Jo, though. Maybe Josa or Joy?

    Albert- I've never liked this name. I already disliked Al and bert, and then they put it together.
    Hector- I always think of a mischevious, rude-mouth boy when I think of this name. And my mom's boxer.
    Arthur- Love this name. Everything about it, even the nickname Art.
    Theodore- I appreciate its approachable, kind-hearted sound.
    Rufus- Never have been sure about this one.
    Archibald - I think its funny and quirky to pair for a pet! For a child? Maybe not. Archie is kind of cute though.
    Hugo- I appreciate it's vowels.
    Atticus- Very coo., strong name. But its becoming pretty trendy out there. I've met a hipster dad who named his son this, who was dressed in hipster baby gear. It was too cute.
    aurora- autumn- ashwyn- bambi- bernadette- calliope- emmalou- henriette- indigo- ione- january- lark- leela- llewellyn- lydia- marnie- molly- narnia- noelle- oralee- penelope- philomena- rain- raven- roxy- ruby- snow- tessa- thora- waverly- willow- winter- wren- zoe | abel- aesop- angus- banjo- bartholomew- bear- bruce- burkley- darwin- elliot- finn- flynn- foster- henry- indigo - knox - laszlo - lyle - navy - nemo - noah - otis - oakley - rainn - thatcher - thomas - thompson - titus - zen

    Mabel - Lovely vintage name.
    Millicent - I do have a soft spot for it. It's the best full name for Millie.
    Charlotte - I really like! But it sort of pales in comparison next to your other names.
    Edith - So much love for this since DA! However, with a Sibyl already on your list, it may get a bit Downton-heavy?
    Agnes - A bit clunky on a little girl. Aggie is cute though.
    Mary - I love as a MN even if it's a 'filler', but it's still plain in the FN spot.
    Maud - feels a bit dark, heavy & boring. But I still like!
    Wilhelmina - I can kind of see why it's pretty, and Mina/Minnie are cool names but I still don't like it.
    Josephine - I love Joseph so I think this is lovely on a girl. I'd save it for the MN spot though.


    Albert - very handsome. Love it.
    Hector - I do kind of like, despite the fact it reminds me of 'heck'.
    Arthur - LOVE it! Classic, vintage, Celtic, magical. Gorgeous.
    Theodore - whilst I like, there are others on this list that I love more.
    Rufus - Reminds me of William II
    Archibald - I think it's very dashing and distinguished! Reminds me of The Secret Garden. But if you've got a pet with the name...
    Hugo - ditto Theodore.
    Atticus - never liked.

    Oh, how to choose! I think I'll have to go for Arthur for the boys. Girls are hard for me! I pick... Edith and Mabel.

    PS- Love your list! Percy & Sibyl? Alfred & Olive? Edmund & Violet? George & Ottilie? Henry & Beatrice?! I love all of them. Can you please have 20 children just so I can see you name them all?
    William ♠ Thomas ♠ Peter ♠ Henry ~ Rose ♠ Alice ♠ Ivy ♠ Lowenna
    Mowesi ~ Henwyn Kernewek ~ Mebyon

    Thanks for the feedback! It's very much appreciated.

    @charlieandperry1: I am loving Arthur more. Especially with the vintage nickname of Art. Arthur, Edith and Mabel are lovely! Girls are also a hard pick for me - I love too many to pick which ones I like more than the other. I do love Downton Abbey, but I hadn't picked up on the Edith and Sibyl connection - perhaps I may still use Edith as it's unlikely I will use both in a sibset when the time comes. Thank you so much for that! I don't come across many people that sincerely like my names, so that means a lot. If only I could have 20 children!

    @heytherepigeon: Interesting way of presenting feedback!
