    Looking for brutally honest opinions on my list

    I really want brutally honest opinions of the names I like! Feel free to suggest other names I might like or combos.

    Katerina "Kate"
    Cassandra "Cassia/Cassie"
    Elisabeth "Lissie/Elise"
    Anneliese "Annie"
    Emmeline "Emmy"
    Elaina "Lainie"

    Some "trendier"/weirder ones I like:
    Kensington "Kenzie"
    Anistyn "Annie"

    Current Favorites:
    { Charlotte :: Alice :: Adelyn :: Nora}
    { Jack :: Leo :: Elliot }

    I am going to hope this is what you meant by brutally honest.

    - Alice - Nice but bland, needs a sparky middle name or an interesting surname to perk it up.

    - Adelyn - I don't know how you pronounce it but if it has a -lin ending as opposed to an -line ending, I don't like it. If it does have a -line ending it might be beneficial to spell it with that.

    - Charlotte - It's cute, perhaps a little bland, but I like Charlie and Lottie as short versions.

    - Katerina - I like it. I like Kate. Yes.

    - Cassandra - I like this one too. Lots of diminutives, lots of options for the girl to choose from.

    - Elisabeth - A classic, it's a good name.

    - Annabel - It's not my favourite but I don't have anything against it.

    - Rosalie - Cute but Twilight.

    - Scarlett - I like Scarlett, I really do, but I really hate 'Scarly' as a nickname (I mean why?) and it colours it all for me.

    - Anneliese - It's a name. Neutral feelings.

    - Emmeline - Not especially my style, but it's a good name, I like it a lot.

    - Lucy - I feel like Lucy's going to get really popular soon, not that it isn't already. With good reason, Lucy's a great name with a cool meaning.

    -Elaina - Makes me think of Elaine, which makes me think of middle aged women. Probably not the thing everyone thinks of but ...

    -Mackinley - No.

    -Kensington - Not actually that interesting a borough of London. Good museums though.

    - Calleigh - I prefer Callie, but you do you.

    - Hadleigh - I guess. I prefer Hadley though. It looks a bit drawn out.

    -Everleigh - I'm starting to see a pattern here. I like Everly as a middle name. That's pretty cute but Everleigh looks like constantly explaining how your name is spelt to everyone. Ever.

    -Anistyn - I don't get it. Aniston? As in Jennifer Aniston? Why would you name your child or yourself after her? Do you like Friends that much?

    Please don't ban me.
    Tallulah, Persephone, Eris, Saskia, Natasha, Zhanna, Matthias, Andreas, Dean, Isaac, Jude, Christopher, Caleb, Victor, Fabian, Skyler, Dexter, Cecily, Alannah, Savannah, Hester, Britta, Xanthe, Temperence, Violetta, Anton, Anatoly, Maksym, Ilya, Raphael, Gabriel, Xanthe, Carmen, Electra, Dahlia.

    Alice- I really like Alice, but it is starting to lose it's sparkle for me.
    Adelyn- Dislike the -lyn. Prefer the "Adeline" spelling.
    Charlotte"Charlie"?- Charlotte is adorable, but I don't care for Charlie. Lotte/Lottie is much cuter.
    Katerina "Kate"- Alright. Doesn't really jump out at me.
    Cassandra "Cassia/Cassie"- Have never really cared for Cassie, but Cassia is pretty.
    Elisabeth "Lissie/Elise"- Like this.
    Annabel- Love Annabel (this spelling especially).
    Rosalie- Alright, but still reminds me of Twilight. Prefer Rosalind.
    Scarlett- Very Gone with the Wind. Not a favorite.
    Anneliese "Annie"- I like this, but like Katerina, it doesn't jump out for me.
    Emmeline "Emmy"- Not a fan.
    Lucy- Like Lucy, prefer that it has a longer variation.
    Elaina "Lainie"- Don't care for it.

    Mackinley- Dislike. Too trendy. Dislike the sounds.
    Kensington "Kenzie"- Also don't like.
    Calleigh- As in Kaylee? This spelling is hard on the eyes, the double l seems unnecesary.
    Hadleigh- Also dislike this spelling. Stick with Hadley.
    Everleigh- Another one I dislike. The -leigh ending feels so unnecessary with all of these names.
    Anistyn "Annie"- Dislike. I find surnames unnatractive, and while Jennifer Aniston is neat, I can't wrap my head around naming a baby after her.

    Sorry if I seem super harsh! I like your main list, but our styles are super different when it comes to your trendier list.

    Alice - This is my sister's name. I love it, and it has done her well so far. Gets mixed up with Alison sometimes, but don't let that stop you. It's simple and classic. Understated beauty.
    Adelyn - I prefer Adeline, or Madeleine.
    Charlotte"Charlie"? - I like Charlotte, but Charlie is my brother's name- so it's all boy to me. Charlotte is a bit overdone right now, but still a beautiful name. I like Lottie as a nickname, because it cute and more feminine than Charlie.
    Katerina "Kate" - My friend's name, she goes by Katie. It's nice and Kate is a sweet nickname.
    Cassandra "Cassia/Cassie" - I like the full name and Cassia, but not Cassie.
    Elisabeth "Lissie/Elise" - Love this name. A classic that will never get old.
    Annabel - Nice, not really my style though.
    Rosalie - Also nice, same as above. I would prefer Rose or Rosa but it is beautiful. Would be a great sister for Katerina.
    Scarlett - Will always love this name!
    Anneliese "Annie" - Cute! I know a bunch of young Anneliese's but it still seems classic rather than trendy. Any Anne name is just gorgeous to me.
    Emmeline "Emmy" - Not a fan. I prefer Emma or Emily.
    Lucy - So cute. Always a bit of a fav, even though it is getting popular.
    Elaina "Lainie" - Kind of neutral on this one.

    Some "trendier"/weirder ones I like:
    Mackinley - Nope.
    Kensington "Kenzie" - Hate.
    Calleigh - Why not spell it Caley? I hate this spelling here. Also it's so overdone.
    Hadleigh - Spelt Hadley is not bad. Male name, but one of the ones I don't mind on a girl.
    Everleigh - I prefer just Ever. The -leigh endings are terrible.
    Anistyn "Annie" - NO NO NO. Just name her Annie. Anistyn is so so terrible.

    You asked for brutal honesty, I did my best.

    Alice- I love this name, it is wearable and sweet and girly without being too frilly. It ages well. Love the Alice in Wonderland association
    Adelyn- I like it, but prefer Adeline (can be pronounced Add-uh-line or add-uh-leen)
    Charlotte"Charlie"- I like it, but it seems to be getting popular. My dog is named Charlotte "Charlie", so I have positive associations with the name.
    Katerina "Kate"- Not my favorite, but I love the nn Kate.
    Cassandra "Cassia/Cassie"- I love Cassandra. Some may say it is dated, but I still think its pretty wearable (its not like Jessica or Jennifer). I like the nns.
    Elisabeth "Lissie/Elise"- Elisabeth is in the top ten in the US. While I've yet to meet a young Elisabeth, the popularity worries me. While it is classic, it seems kind of boring to me.
    Annabel- I like it, but prefer it as a middle. Its just too frilly for me.
    Rosalie- Same as Annabel. It doesn't rhyme with most names, so its nice for a middle. But too frilly for a first name for me.
    Scarlett- I'm reading Gone with the Wind right now, so I'm really into the name Scarlett currently. Its getting pretty popular though. I prefer it for a middle.
    Anneliese "Annie"- Never been a fan of this one. Too princessy. Prefer simple Anna. Or Anastasia.
    Emmeline "Emmy"- I like this one. I have a character with this name so it reminds me of her. Its one of the nicer Em names. Its not popular yet, which is a bonus.
    Lucy- I like it, but I think it's overrated. Prefer it as a nn for Lucia, Lucinda, etc. Too nicknamey for me.
    Elaina "Lainie"- Not my favorite. I prefer the spelling Elena as well. Its okay and totally wearable but kind of boring at the same time.

    I can sometimes see the appeal with trendy names, but I'm not a fan of most of these, so I won't mention them.
    Calleigh- What's wrong with Callie? A teacher is going to have fun trying to figure out what her name is. Even Cali is easier than that.
