    Exclamation What would you name my child? Criteria

    I LOVED the idea that Oliviasarah's post where she gave criteria and had help from the beautiful Berries to find the "Perfect name" (Link to post below). I am TTC so have been thinking of name quite alot recently and I am stuck on girls names so thought this would be a great idea to get some possible names and have decided to make a boys one aswell.

    The name criteria...
    - No "E" first initial as my sons name is Emmett. No twilight names.
    - As someone pointed out to me once I seem to like "Less popular but established names eg Pierre instead of Peter, Malachi instead of Michael or Malcolm"
    - Also starting to like edgy / "rocker names" like Jagger, Cobain, Ace and Rocco...
    - Strong names like Conrad, Alexander, Alaric, Dominic, Leopold....
    - Mythological names like Jove
    - Must be intriguing on a person of any age.
    - Names that are not to be within the top 100 stats (Australian stats {I have posted a link to a 2013 top names pdf} if it doesn't work just use Nameberry's England one) and not too "trendy". For boys I am not too picky about this.
    - Name meanings aren't a deal-breaker but names that sound good and have a good meaning, most of the time, go straight to my faourites list.
    - I don't mind alliteration. Dislike initials spelling words or abbreviations. Last name is G0rd0n
    - The child will be raised on the eastern coast of Australia and will have heritage from German and Irish/French (Me) & Aboriginal and English/Welsh (My partner).

    Disclaimer: I'm not pregnant (Yet...). The idea of the post came from Oliviasarah (

    Thanks in advance!
    I'm excited to see what you come up with...

    Matthias and Callister (short form of McCallister) are the first that came to mind when I read your list. Also Alaric, which I see is already on your list. Some other ideas I had are
    Are any of these sort of what you're looking for?
    ~ Elisabeth Odelia "Elsie" ~ Gideon Boone ~
    ~ Adelheid Ruby "Addie Rue" ~ Theodore Solomon "Teddy"~
    ~ Casilda Josephine "Cassie Jo" ~ Zaccheaus Westley "Zeke" ~
