Help me with my list. Vote and tell me what you think!
Please tell me what you think of the names. Honest feedback, good and bad. If you hate it, tell me why. I do worry about names that will have problems with pronnuciation and try to have names that almost alwasy would be said correctly. Please vote on them on the website below and give any feedback here, it's really quick to vote a yes or no to each. I have some of my top favs and I added some that have recently intrigued me and really wondering what others think. The fist time I did this was soo helpful.
Cordelia (nickname Cora)
Esme or Esmée
Alaric (nickname Lars)
Colton (nickname Cole)
Harrison (nickname Harris or Rick)
Herrick (nickname Eric or Rick)
Marvin (nickname Marv or Mars)
Maxwell (nickname Max)

Aria -- Very pretty! I just don't love it enough to have it in my top ten.
Ayla -- It's okay, not something I would use.
Clara -- Gorgeous but a bit plain for me atm.
Cordelia (nickname Cora or Celia) -- I like it but would never name my child this.

Lorelei -- Love, always have. I just love other names more right now.
Lydia -- Cute on a child but I don't really like this name on an adult for some reason.

Aria- I was friends with an Aria. It really suited her. If it wasn't for her, I wouldn't like this name.
Ayla- Love this name.
Clara- I adore this name. Simple and sweet.
Cordelia (nickname Cora or Celia)- I do not like this name at all. I know it's suppose to sound feminine, but to me this name is rough. And Celia is overused as a nickname.
Daphne- I think of Scooby Doo.
Esme or Esmée- Sounds made-up.
Katrina- Not spectacular. It's an average name.
Lorelei- I know this is becoming trendy, but I feel as though it should've stayed in the 90's.
Madeleine- Pretty name. I prefer aleternate, more traditional spellings.
Renee- On my list.
Rosalie- On my list.
Serena- I don't like this name. Just never stuck out for me.
Tessa- Becoming very trendy. I remember loving this name as a child, but as more and more people start to consider this name, it's fading in my ranks.
Veronica- Alright name.
Alaric (nickname Lars)- Like the name, not the nn. Lars seems very snobbish.
Colton (nickname Cole)- Love the nn.
Damon- Matt Daman!
Dexter- I think Dexter's Lab. I can only see this on a red head now.
Doyle- Simpleton name.
Everett- NIce name.
Harrison (nickname Harris or Rick)- Harris is a cool nn. I love Harrison.
Herrick (nickname Eric or Rick)- Prefer just Eric or Rick, but Herrick is nice.
Jared- I know way too many Jareds.
Joel- A cool alternative to Joe.
Luther- Maybe if this was 16th century Germany.
Marvin (nickname Marv or Mars)- I do like this name.
Maxwell (nickname Max)- On my list (Primarily to get to Max).
Simon- An alright name. Seems to be the name of the week here.
Travis- Kind of on the safe, boring side.
Trevor- Hillbilly name.
Walter- Old fashion.
Wyatt- Love this name. I think Wyatt with a brother Eli would make a nice set.
