    Thoughts On These Family Names

    I just found a page in one of my old name books with my family names that I had gotten from my grandmother a couple months ago. I fink a lot of these workable so I would love opinions on them.

    Sidney
    Amos
    Maxwell
    Samuel
    Benjamin
    Philip(I really like Philippe and Felipe)
    Jack


    These will be middles.

    Thoughts in this thread? I'll return the favor.


    Jasper Samuel Orion | Henrik Peter/Peter Henrik
    Alaric James | Theodore ?
    Lilith Maria | Charlotte Amara | Katarina Ivy | Beatrix Illyria

    Gemma | Cora | Rosalind | Luna | Elijah | Jeremy

    Sidney: Seems feminine and seems like a city name (I live in Australia)
    Maxwell: Love this and the nickname Max
    Amos: I can't like this sorry
    Samuel: I love this especially without the nickname Sam
    Benjamin: I know a little Ben (with a brother named Phil) and he's so cute it makes me like the name
    Philip(I really like Philippe and Felipe): its such an old name even though I know a baby Phillip I prefer Philippe
    Jack: love this

    Sidney: I like Sidney better for a girl to be honest
    Amos: somehow it reminds me of Texas and bulls
    Maxwell: I love it but I'm afraid it is too popular already
    Samuel: an all-time classic, I love the nn Sam/Sammy
    Benjamin: same as Samuel
    Philip(I really like Philippe and Felipe): I like Philip but I'm not sure about the French/Spanish versions unless you have a cultural background
    Jack: lovely name, also an all-time classic

    Sidney - I love this for a boy (I don't see any appeal in it as a girls name)
    Amos - This is brilliant.
    Maxwell - I like this a lot, powerful and fun
    Samuel - Eh, a bit dull.
    Benjamin - See above
    Philip/Phillipe/Felipe - dull.
    Jack - I love Jack, but it's a family namr for me too so I'm biased.

    Sidney- I like it more for a boy than a girl too. The nn Sid is super cool!
    Amos- Love.
    Maxwell- Maxwell nn Max is one of my favourite fn options but it would also make a great middle.
    Samuel- I've always just preferred Sam straight out. I don't like the -uel ending.
    Benjamin- A classic. I like it.
    Phillip- I like it, but I do like most established, classic names.
    Jack- Also a family name that I am very biased towards for personal reasons.
