HELP! Hubby and I don't agree on ANYTHING!!
My husband and I discuss baby names almost every day and we have yet to agree on anything! I am not pregnant now, but hopefully will be in a few months. Please give me your honest opinions about the names he loves and the names I love so we can start working towards some common ground! Feel free to give suggestions; we need all the help we can get!!

Our last name starts with the "Shh" sound, so it can be difficult to pair names with sometimes....
Thanks everyone, I look forward to hearing what you all have to say!!

Generally great choices..the only one that irked me was Kipton (no offense...just sounds like a pretentious little bratty kid to me). Some suggestions--Cabot, Ronan, Bennett, Kendrick, Dylan; Clementine, Sage, Aurora, Augusta, Valentina, Maya, Brielle, Abrielle, Gabrielle, Abigail, Avaline, Tatum, Coraline, Carolina. Best wishes!

I had a longer response to this and then accidentally deleted it, sorry. In summation though I feel like you all have a similar style when it comes to boys names, but differ more on girls. Overall though all the names were nice choices, though I did find some of the girls names a bit common for my taste. The only one that really stood out to me was Pepper, please no. It's a nice spunky name for a character, but I just can't see it on a real person. Also, as much as I love Daschel (prefer Dashiell) if your last name starts with a "Sh" sound I could see it getting a bit tongue twistery. Anyway, some ideas from the peanut gallery:

Declan, Archer, Clare, Pepper, Evangeline.
From your list: Callum, Gregory, Zoe, May, Corinne, Susanna.
Similarities: Declan and Callum have a similar vibe... What about: Rory, Conrad, Jaspar, Henry, Leon, Calvin, Angus, Nigel
Clare and Corinne are both pretty C names. What about: Clara, Claudia, Camilla, Cora, Cleo, Calla, Colleen
Since your husband likes nicknamey names on girls (Pepper, Piper), maybe he can come up with a nickname he likes for one of your girl names! Susanna lends to some very cute nicknames. Sosie, Suz, Sanna, Susie, Annie, etc.
If you went with Evangeline is there a nickname that would make you love the name? Evangeline, nn Evie? Eva? Lina?
Based on what you gave me, my best suggestions are Nigel and Camilla.
