    Lightbulb Thoughts on these names?

    This is for a project to help name my friend's upcoming child, we don't know the gender but the child is due in August, I can't give any more details due to privacy concerns.

    Thoughts on these names:
    Candace
    Cathleen / Kathleen
    Lyza
    Martha
    Marley
    Matilda
    Nadia
    Natalie
    Natasha
    Pamela
    Riley
    Shelly
    Skye
    Stella
    Taylor
    Vanessa

    Which ones are your faves, and what could you suggest if any?

    These names are super cute! My favorites are Candace, Martha, Matilda, and Stella. I would suggest Beatrice for girls

    A lot of the names feel a bit 1980s and 2990s. Not bad just not my style. Then you have some that very much are my style.

    Cathleen and Kathleen are not what I would choose because I'm not a fan of Cathy. I do love Kit, and that's use for Katherine... maybe it could work for a Kathleen? Carol/Carolyn nn Carlie is also cute

    Lyza I don't mind but prefer the Spelling of Liza. It seems like your friend likes familiar names but not super common or names quickly rising so I would avoid Eliza, but maybe Leisl?

    Pamela I love as is

    The rest are fine, just not my style.

    Hi there.

    Here are my thoughts:

    Candace-I don't care for this. I can only picture a snooty middle aged woman in a pants suit. Not sure why...

    Cathleen / Kathleen-I kind of like this with the 'K' spelling. Mainly because the nns Kit & Kitty are adorable.

    Lyza-This spelling looks way off. I don't care much for Liza, but as a nn for Elizabeth with that spelling it would be kind of cool and different.

    Martha-This seems a tad dated.

    Marley-I don't know...it just seems a bit trendy.

    Matilda-This is nice. Solid, but has a little flair. I love the nn Millie.

    Nadia-I adore this. Mainly because I'm a huge gymnastics fan.

    Natalie-I don't care for this name, but no real reason. May be a personal association come to think of it. It's fine though.

    Natasha-Meh.

    Pamela-This seems sort of dated, but I think it may just be ready for a comeback.

    Riley-Way too trendy.

    Shelly-My name is Michelle, & I hate when people call me Shelly. That being said, I would only do it as a nn. I guess it's different.

    Skye-Beautiful! It's my kitty's mn (Amelia Skye.) . Simple & elegant, but a little exotic.

    Stella-Love it! One of my top favorites. Classic & feminine, but a little spunky.

    Taylor-See Riley.

    Vanessa-I don't care for it, but it's alright.

    Hope this helps.
