    You have a lot of nice names on there. My favorites are:

    BOYS

    Arthur -- I prefer it without a nickname
    Augusten -- I like it for Augusten Burroughs and without a nn
    Barnaby -- again, no nn for me. I wish more people used this
    Bartholomew -- Same with this. I like Mew
    Cassius -- But I pronounce it cass-ee-us and don't use a nn
    Nathaniel -- This was on my list for a long time. I like it without a nn
    Percival -- I hate Percy so much >.<
    Peregrin -- <3 I'd use Pippin
    Raphael -- This ones on my list with the nn Ra
    Xavier

    GIRLS

    Alice -- I like it with no nn
    Amelia -- again, no nn
    Anastasia -- I think I might use Tia for this one. How are you getting Star?
    Aurelia -- no nn
    Gwendolyn (Gwen/Winnie)
    Helena -- but only pronounced helen-ah. I like Nell as a nn but probably wouldn't use one
    Minerva -- Love it and wish people would use it.
    Sophia (Sophie) -- This ones on my list as a middle for Guenevere
    Sybil -- I wouldn't use a nn or I'd use Sibbie

    Thanks for all the positive comments!

    To answer dantea's question of how I got the nn Star from Anastasia, I knew a girl at school called Anastasia who went by Star. It really suited her and I prefer it to nn like Nastia and Stacey, although Tia is quite nice.

    Leahmarie, I love the suggestion of nn Colm for Malcolm! However, for the girl's names, I dislike Charlie and Ellie as they have negative connotations for me (mean girls at school).

    I have another question for you:

    My number one names from my list are (currently!) Bartholomew (Tolly) and Helena (Nell). Helena is actually a family name (paternal grandmother, though I never met her). I think Tolly and Nell would make an adorable sibset. don't you agree? Also, it is a tradition in my family to use family names for middle names, so out of these names, which would work best with Bartholomew and Helena?

    Bartholomew:
    Bryan (father)
    James (brother)
    Kenneth (paternal uncle)
    Norman (paternal uncle)
    Richard (paternal uncle)
    John (maternal grandfather)

    Helena:
    Sophie (paternal grandmother's middle name, who I am named after - full circle there)
    Grace (my middle name)
    Margaret (my middle name, maternal grandmother, paternal aunt, maternal aunt's middle name - very popular name in my family!)
    Lorraine (mother)
    Pamela (maternal aunt, maternal great-aunt)
    Elisabeth (paternal aunt)

    Thanks x

    I think the best combos are:
    Bartholomew James
    Bartholomew John (Since Bartholomew is so long I think you need a very short middle)
    Helena Grace (Though Grace is becoming pretty popular as a middle)
    Helena Lorraine (Really pretty)
    Helena Elisabeth

    If I was choosing, I'd say Bartholomew James and Helena Lorraine.
