@hungrymuse - I may try that, I know babynamegenie has a test drive generator, where you input the name and it spits out test sentences at you Thanks!
@heatherleigh - I think that'll likely happen. I love Isobel, but don't see myself with a daughter named Isobel, but I'll likely use it in the middle for a lot of different names on my list I'll try that with the whole list too, thank youhaley / twenty / ttc 2017

I just posted a thread with the exact same question yesterday! XD So far I've only gotten sympathies and no solutions *sigh*
It's difficult when when you're the only one who has any say in it....
My lists are sadly longer than yours, at 120 for each gender at least.
I manage to rule out (or bump to middle name only) about 5 names from each list with every method I've tried so far. It's not making big enough dents! And I'm always reminded of names that should be on the list.Åshild | loves books & baked goods

I don't have quite the same problem because I have like a top 50 for each gender and probably a half of it is controversial because of the associations, a few ones don't go with the last name and from the remaining there usually are like 3-5 names that I am sure are safe and will be pronounced easily by some of my relatives who don't speak English. But it can't stop me from adding the ones I will never use to my list.
My advice is to do a little research and find out which of your names have the best associations, meanings and whether they will be safe from teasing, bullying or mispronounciation. I know some Berries use their favorites at Starbucks, which I think is a nice "crush test".olympia/europe/college student
