What do you think of my list?
I'm a longtime lurker of this forum and I was wondering what you thought of these name crushes of mine.
Our surname starts with a P and rhymes with Shorter... Ten points to whoever can guess it!
Well, unfortunately the "er" ending clashes with some of my favourite boys' names. Well, _er _er sounds a bit singsongy. You catch my drift.
If we had a son it's a given that his middle name will be James, as per tradition in my husband's family.
Here's my list; let me know what you think!
Griffin (My mother's maiden name. I love the idea of using it, but with our surname it sounds a bit odd)
I'll add a few more if I think of them.

Blake - NMS. Not a fan of this one.
Griffin (My mother's maiden name. I love the idea of using it, but with our surname it sounds a bit odd) - Absolutely, positively do not like this name. On anyone. Ever. For a last name, it's great. For a first name, it's awful.
Miles - Love this. So classic with the middle name James and it goes so well with your last name.
Reginald (Reggie) - Ok. NMS, but it's nice.
Vincent - Doesn't go well with James.
Theodore (Theo) - Nice. Not as good as Miles, but ok.
Noel - Love this one. Ties with Miles, IMO.
Magnus - No. Don't like at all.
Alastair - Ok. Classic, but NMS.
Joseph - Love it. The alliteration sounds wonderful with your last name.
Wilfred - No.
William - Ok. Classic to the point of almost boring, though.
Ellis - Love it. Unusual but not absurd, and sounds great with James.
Russell - Eh. Not a fan.Girls - Abigail, Georgianna, Anne, Charlotte, Claire, Genevieve, Annette, Eliza, Felicity, Hannah, Noelle, Eugenie, Grace, Phoebe, Philippa, Cecilia, Cecily, Elizabeth, Hollis, Piper, Lorelei, Vivienne, Paige, Carolina, Isobel, Lucy, Molly, Georgia, Victoria, Naomi
Boys - Bobby Sparklefritz until H can offer suggestions. Ones I like: Rory, Owen, Tyler, Ian, Elliot, Alexander, Ephraim, Levi, Jacob, Reid, Avery, Nathan, Miles, Jasper, Spencer, Toby, Dean, Philip

Theodore and Miles are definitely my favourites on your list, alot of the others I see as great middle names; Blake, William, Joseph, Vincent - all too traditional for me.
Edgar is adorable and I knew the cutest little boy ever with this name and it's only given me a positive association.
I like that Griffin is your mother's maiden name but if it's odd with your last name, maybe it would be OK in the middle? Theodore Griffin?
Russell, Alastair, Magnus, Noel and Wilfred aren't my style at all.
Ellis is OK and actually my grandmother's favourite name, something like Ellis Theodore would be cute.
I like Reggie but Reginald seems wrong for a child.Name CrushesCaspar - Rupert - Jacoby - Barnaby - Atlas - Adriel - KoaOlwen - Delphine - Maeve - Peridot - Shoshana
