Thoughts on my current name crushes?
I'm not expecting, and won't be for a few years, but I'm enjoying imagining which names I'll use. My choices change rapidly, although I've loved a lot of the same girls names for a long time, so I'd like to know what you berries think of my current loves, their possible nicknames and if you have any ideas for first/middle combos then please suggest them!
While the girls names are all ones that I'd definitely use, most of the boys will probably be stuck as "guilty pleasures", or at the most middle names, in favour of more conservative choices but I'm interested to know if you think any of them might work on an actual boy.
Eira (ay-rah- welsh name meaning snow)
Godfrey (most likely only as a middle name)
Jubal (joo-ball)/Yuval (you-vahl)
Alaric "Rick"I'm Annie. Not currently TTC, just getting a headstart on trying to combine four cultures and two families into beautiful names!
My future daughters: Myrna Beatrix, Rosemarie Saoirse "Romy", Mathilda Róisín "Hildy", Constance Dearbhla "Connie", Margaretha Méabh "Greta", Susanna Aoibhínn "Zuzu/Sansa"
My future sons: Léopold Mervyn "Léo", Théodore Horatio "Théo", Dashiell Colm "Dash", Augustin Cary "Gus", Édouard Clement (Ned?), Zacharie Séamus "Zach"

Rosemarie "Romy"- Love! And I love that you've spelt it Rosemarie. But I don't really like Romy.
Audra- It's nice, but I prefer Audrey or Aura
Marguerite "Daisy/Rita"- Nice name and nns
Eira (ay-rah- welsh name meaning snow)- Love! And I love your pronunciation (I say it like that too )
Myrna- It looks pretty, but it doesn't sound as nice when I say it
Saoirse (seer-sha)- I don't really like it, I have a bit of an aversion to names with 'sh' in the middle.
Aoife (ee-fa)- Okay
Virginia "Ginny/Gigi"- I'm not a fan, not because of the virgin bit, but it reminds me of a certain body part when I look at it (sorry) I do love Ginny though
Mathilda "Hildy"- Cute nn (I also like Tilda), and I have Matilda on my list (so I like it!)
Jebedaiah "Jeb"- Nms, I'm not a fan of most -iah names
Calix "Cal"- Quite nice, like a twist on Alex
Maximus "Max"- It's okay, I've never been a huge fan of Max names
Septimus "Tim"- I like it, I read/listened to an audio tape of a series with a character called Septimus.
Jared/Jarrod- Nms, it's okay
Oscar "Oz"- I like it! But I prefer Oscar in full to Oz
Mycroft "My"- I love Sherlock too much to say no, but I do automatically think Microsoft as well
Godfrey (most likely only as a middle name)- Okay, not sure if I like or dislike it
Jubal (joo-ball)/Yuval (you-vahl)- Nms
Horatio- I LOVE Horatio (so, so much!) such a brilliant name.
Alaric "Rick"- Like it, I prefer Alec as nn.

Rosemarie "Romy"- Rosemarie is pretty, but I adore Rosemary, especially for its botanical connection. Rosemary just feels a bit fresher, but Rosemarie is still lovely.
Audra- NMS, but still lovely.
Marguerite "Daisy/Rita"- Serious, studious, yet a lot of fun. I would be really excited to meet a little Marguerite. I adore Margaret too.
Eira (ay-rah- welsh name meaning snow)- NMS, and the prn will be a problem, but it is lovely.
Myrna- I just hear 'burn her' or 'murder'. I can see its appeal, and I really want to like it, but I cannot get past that.
Saoirse (seer-sha)- Lovely.
Aoife (ee-fa)- Lovely. The prn could prove problematic depending upon where you live, but it is gorgeous.
Virginia "Ginny/Gigi"- I think it is a great name, I just worry about 'virgin' teasing in middle school.
Mathilda "Hildy"- Gorgeous! I love it.
Jebedaiah "Jeb"- NMS, but a great name.
Heath- NMS, and still strongly tied to Heath Ledger (to me), but a great name.
Calix "Cal"- Fun and spunky: it brings together the best elements of Calvin and Felix.
Maximus "Max"- LOVE.
Septimus "Tim"- I don't find this very appealing on the ear: I worry about 'septic' teasing.
Jared/Jarrod- NMS (It is super trendy / starting to be dated where I live: Jarryd / Jarhid, etc. I've seen it all.) but I can see its appeal.
Oscar "Oz"- Fun and spunky: NMS (bad personal association), but a great name.
Mycroft "My"- YAY! LOVE. This makes me so happy. I adore Sherlock Holmes, and Mycroft isn't as obvious as using Sherlock.
Godfrey (most likely only as a middle name)- This would make a cool mn, but I wouldn't use it as a fn (God jokes: limitless).
Jubal (joo-ball)/Yuval (you-vahl)- Jubal is lovely: bouncy and rambunctious, it reminds me of jubes, Jubilee and being jubilant.
Horatio- LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE. Horatio is on my signature. I adore Horatio. My absolute favourite from your list.
Alaric "Rick"- NMS, but a good name.
Girls: Mathilda, Marguerite, Rosemarie, Aoife.
Boys: Maximus, Mycroft, Jubal and Horatio.Camellia, Mary, Vesper, Yuki, Esther, Pello, Dossie, Susanna, Ottoline, Frances, Bessie, Nanon, Theodora, Fern, Galilee, Fay, Odelia, Dominica, Constance.
Pello, Dossie, Gardener, Abraham, Amias, Obadiah, David, Lemuel, Jericho, Moses, Bellamy, Barnaby, Halian, Ezekiel, Roland, Francis.
