    Honest (without being hurtful?) Opinions?

    First of all, is there a way to be honest about something without being full on 'that is the ugliest effing thing I've ever heard/seen in my life'? If there is, that would be the most beneficial to me! (Yes, I have had people say that to me, over not so weird names :S)

    Secondly, I'm trying to narrow down my lists, because the one I have for girls, was well over 100 names, and the list for boys was over 60. I've slowly gotten it down lower, but it still needs work. I've taken my 15 favourites for each gender, and would love to know your honest opinions. Hopefully this will help me narrow it down further.

    Andrew
    Bennett
    Callum

    Connor/Conor
    Elliott
    Harrison

    Adam- A good, classic name. I've known many wonderful Adams. Not overly popular, which is good.
    Andrew- Another fine name. I'm not a big fan of Andy, but Drew seems to be the most intuitive nn these days.
    Bennett- Not my favorite Ben- name, but it does have a respectable sound.
    Callum- I go back and forth on this name. I can't decide if I like the sound.
    Christopher- So classic. I really like this name.
    Connor/Conor- It reminds me of an incorrect way of calling someone a "con". They're a Con-ner.
    Elliott- I entertained this for a while, but I have negative associations. It's not a bad name, though.
    Harrison- I quite like this.
    Hayden- This name feels childish to me. It's hard for me to imagine adult Haydens.
    Henry- As classic as you can get.
    Joel- I like this name, but some southerners pronounce it a little strange (where I'm from)
    Joseph- Nice enough. You have lots of classic names!
    Lewis/Louis- I prefer Louis and the Louie pronunciation, but either are fine.
    Michael- Another biblical classic.
    Toby- Much prefer Tobias. Toby feels childish, to me.

    Agatha- I don't like it as much as I used to because everyone I mention it to says "Hagatha".
    Augusta- Beautiful and underused! I love this one.
    Blythe- Fun and playful. This is on my own list. One of my favorites.
    Cecilia- I like Celia, but not Cecilia. Seems too difficult to say.
    Clementine- Another fun and playful name. I like this.
    Delphine- An unusual choice, but I think it works.
    Eleanor- Classic and lovely
    Florence- Another favorite of mine
    Iris- Your list just keeps getting better!
    Margaret- Beautiful and classic. I prefer Margaret to any of her nicknames.
    Martha- I liked this until I read The Handmaids Tale
    Millicent- I always hear "militant". Millie is cute nickname though.
    Morwenna- I tried to sell this to my husband. I like it a lot.
    Ottilie- One of those rare beauties.
    Rosamond- Prefer Rosalind or Rosamund, but this is nice.

    Ophelia- I really dislike the sound of this one.
    Sophia- Classic, but a bit overused at the moment.
    Charlotte- I dislike the "harlot" sound.
    Olive- Cute, but doesn't seem to fit your list as well as most of your other choices.

    Mason- I feel like this is a trendier choice.
    Jack- As overused as Jack is, it's just such a nice, practical name!
    Landon- Another one with a trendier feel. I prefer your classics.
    Lawson- Lawrence would be better.
    Ezra, Finn, Hamish, Nathan, Roland, Tobias
    Bonnie, Clementine, Greta, Hermione, Matilda, Wren

    aw thank you! :-) Millicent would definitely become Millie! Florence would likely become Flora, but not sure for that one yet! I love your suggestion of Iris Ophelia though! So nice!
