Looking at my list of names I have accumulated there are very few I will feel confident and comfortable in using on my children due to considerations of my current bf's surname, guilty pleasures or I just don't picture myself using. My image of what I always thought my children would look like have altered and I don't know what to expect until I will see their face.
Surname issues/flow- Lyra, Arthur, Electra, Annora, Mavis, Avis, Doris, Elvis, Gwyneira, Inara.
Anything ending with 's' or an 'rah' sound
Winston, Ignatius, Odin, Ernest Everest, Monroe, Linden, Walden, Fable, Alba, Poet, Sonnet, Monet, Alouette, Albany, Amity, Adair, Oswin (f) Artemis, Windsor, Genoa
Just can't picture using:
Abraham, Abram, Bram, Oscar, Oswald, Raphael, Celia, Joy, June, Merida, Geneva, Nola, Jasmine, Nancy, Talia, Magnolia, Waverly, Anika, Zinnia, Twyla, Luna
Abel, George, Isaac, Clover, Esther, Fern, Marceline really are the only remaining names I can see using.
Do you group your list of names in the same way? Or do you only keep the ones you plan on using?

I have one long list and a top 10. I don't usually bother to discriminate between names I would/wouldn't use, but at the same time I'm aware that I only really like about 20% of my names enough to use them as firsts--the others I keep on the list as middles.Gwen

I have like, less than five names that are always my favorite on any given day, for boys anyway (Callen, Holden, Ezra). For girls, there are only two consistent favorites. (Aspen & Violet) Then there is a short list of names that have passed my criteria and I would use, no question. (Griffin, Beckett, Gemma, Annabel) to name a few. Then there is a list of names that I go back and forth on whether I'd use it or not (Like Lula, and Draven, for example.) And then there are crushes, which are totally fleeting, and those can include GPs that I'd never use. That last list is usually the longest18 | Name lover | No babies, just planning.
