    Thoughts on our list?

    Hello Berries!

    I'm expecting in November 2013, and today, we found out it will be a baby boy. We were in complete agreement about two girl names, but we've had a harder time settling on a name (or two) for a boy. Here's our list so far. I'd love to hear your thoughts and ideas for other name possibilities!

    Henry
    Leo
    Linus
    Lionel
    Nathaniel
    Miller
    Oscar
    Samuel
    Seamus
    Sean
    Solon
    William (Liam)

    Lately Leo has been really appealing to me
    LOVE Miller a bit surname a bit old southern charm just love
    William is one of the few classes I really connect with though I prefer William to Liam!
    Nathaniel is very striking and it doesn't hurt my first crush was my older brother best friend Nate. Reminds me of a gorgeous curly headed boy with dimples can't go wrong there

    Those are my favs from your list
    For now if I had 2 of each- Girls: Sunday and Willa Boys: Knox and Ford or Penn
    Girls: Vivi Charles, Lila Charles, Sunday Kate, Willa Lace, Landry Kate, Monroe Laycee, Ezra Kate, Lucy madden, Lila snow, Charlize Layce, Hazel Anne, Indy, Wynter
    Boys: Knox Maverick, Knox Ryder, Archer Allen, Archer Atlas, Shepard Knox, Monroe Hendrix, Madden McLane, Finn Allen, Crewe Archer, Quade Allen, Dash Allen, Thayer,Tennyson, Vance, Ford Allen, Penn, Wilder, Rook, Hoyt, Holt, Hart, Bishop

    Henry - I like but it does strike me as very formal.
    Leo - Nice, reminds me of Leo di Caprio and I think of a very handsome wearer of this name
    Linus - I never know how to say this, Line-us or Lynn-us?
    Lionel - Actually quite like this too, and you could use nn Leo with it too.
    Nathaniel - Like but prefer Nathan
    Miller - Not my cup of tea, plus I know a girl who goes by this (her surname) so I struggle to see it on a boy
    Oscar - Like this too
    Samuel - Gorgeous, my favourite
    Seamus - I think would only work if you had Irish heritage. Not sure about having 'shame' in the name though.
    Sean - Nice, much prefer this spelling.
    Solon - Never heard this before, makes me think of Colon though/
    William (Liam) - Like William but prefer nn Will, Liam's become quite chavvy in my area which is why.

    Anna Katherine * Lydia Ellen * Zoe Madeleine * Phoebe ___ * Imogen ___ * Emilia ___
    Samuel * Thomas * Charlie * Reuben * Oliver * George

    Henry - love. classic and so cute for a little boy.
    Leo - love.
    Linus - cute, in a nerdy kind of way.
    Lionel - dislike. hate the sound. much prefer Linus.
    Nathaniel - love the full name, but dislike Nate.
    Miller - meh.
    Oscar - cute.
    Samuel - Samuel is just ok to me, but I love Sam!
    Seamus - great name, like pp said, if you are Irish.
    Sean - also a great name, but so common. I would go for Seamus before this.
    Solon - dislike. too close to colon.
    William (Liam) - love. William is my favorite classic name, and Liam is one of my all time favorites, I don't care how popular it is!

    Top 5: Henry, Leo, Nathaniel, Oscar, Seamus, William nn Liam.

    What are the girls names you've decided on?

    You have an interesting mix of trends (Miller, Linus), rare (Solon), and classics on your list.

    My personal favorites are Leo, William (Liam), and Nathaniel - in that order.
    Olivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve
    Benedict/Eli: Jude/Zane: Luke/Darius : Levi/Phineas/Calvin
