Honest opinions on my favorite baby names please! 💛💛
Hey everyone! I am a recently married 23 year old who won't be having any babies anytime soon, but I am a planner! These are my favorite names so far...honest opinions please! I am so indecisive! I love names that are not so common yet not strange... Last name is Schultz if that helps 😄
-Declan- Love this name but I am worried about it being pronounced as De-CLAN?
-Henry- might be too formal with a middle name like Charles...
**His middle name would be Charles after his dad and grandfather
-Adeline (or Adeleine) I love this name! My great great great grandmother's name was Mary Adeline. However, I am worried that it would be pronounced Adalynn...
-Madeline (or Madeleine)
-Ruby- It is my great grandmothers name however my parents hate it!
-Harper- might be too common
**Optional middle names for her would be either May (with a Y after my maiden name) or Claire/Clairene (my great grandmother is named Clairene).
Thanks everyone! 💛💛

My favorites from your list:
Declan Charles Schultz - I don't think you need to worry about the pronunciation. Most people know it.
Elliott Charles Schultz - Handsome, and has a really great flow, probably my number one favorite for you.
Finn Charles Schultz - I like this, and I also like Finnian or Phineas, with the nickname Finn.
Henry Charles Schultz - You can always go with a nickname like Hal or Hank if it feels too proper.
Adeline May Schultz - So pretty! Once someone hears the correct pronunciation, they'll get it.
Ruby Claire Schultz - I really like Ruby, it's definitely coming back into fashion.
The others, I'm not a fan of for various reasons. Porter reminds me of "portly." Harper is becoming fairly common, but if you're worried about popularity, you DEFINITELY don't want to use Ellie or Madeline. I can't even tell you how many little Ellies and Maddies I hear on the playground when I take my kids.
Edited to add some other names you might like:
Summer Claire - I think Summer is a pretty R-ending alternative to Harper and Piper, and it's less used than either of those.

I LOVE Finn despite its popularity. I would use a longer form though, Finley, Finnian, Phineas, Finnegan...
Finnian Charles Shultz sounds great!

Of your boys names I think Elliott is by far the best. I really like that name, as too me it is at once cheeky, sophisticated, masculine and sensitive. Really attractive. Second choices are Henry and Finn, which I like both. I am not at all a fan of surname or occupational names, so Porter, Sawyer, Tanner, Everett and Barrett score very low for me. Sorry.
Of your girls names I like Madeleine the most. I also really like Ellie, but as a nickname for:
Of your middle names for girls, I think Claire's the winner.
My overall favourites are:
Elliott Charles and Eleanor Claire "Ellie"
But maybe not both as they are too similar.TTC since Jan 14. After 1 MC and 3 failed IUIs finally pregnant through IVF
