    New Crushes - Thoughts?

    Lately, I've been intentionally thinking of and looking for names that I haven't really considered before - I feel like I needed a refresh from some of my old favorites. Below are a few names that have crossed my mind that I think I like, but I'm curious as to your opinions. Do you like/dislike any? Would you add any names? Do you know of similar names?

    My "random crush" list currently is:

    Arden
    Carden
    Emmett
    Greta
    Maven
    Reeves
    Zara
    taylor.



    current crushes

    girl firsts: ruby, georgia, maxine, margot, olive, thea, gemma
    girl middles: florence, josephine, gray, theodosia, jubliee, gloria, emmanuelle
    -
    boy firsts: maxwell, shepherd, cormac, callan, sullivan, julian, everett, kit
    boy middles: salvatore, david, daniel, wilder, dean, schaeffer, gabriel

    Arden - I really like Arden -it has a magical and literary feel to it
    Carden - Interesting - kind of like a mix of classic Cara and modern Arden.
    Emmett - I prefer it on a boy, but I can imagine it working on a girl
    Greta - sweet, vintage and warm
    Maven - love the sounds of this - it sounds a little mystical and witchy but also fresh and sweet
    Reeves - I like the sounds
    Zara - I love Zara - I enjoy the princessy meaning with the harder sounds of the name

    Sweet, unique, and still unpopular:
    Greta
    Zara

    Belongs to the boys, not girls:
    Arden
    Emmett

    Maven - this is a noun, not a name

    Reeves - the possessive is a mouthful..."that's Reeve-sez doll!" and it's a surname, not a girl's name

    Carden - horribly made-up.

    Arden- this is a solid name, tailored, strong, and while it's neutral I do prefer it for girls.

    Carden- as I mentioned on your boy's list, there's a chance people will assume this is an invented/made up name even though it's an old English occupational name. I also find Arden more attractive sounding between the two very similar names.

    Emmett: I'm all for neutral names and not necessarily being able to assume the gender of a sibset based off names, but considering all of your boy's picks definitely lean on the masculine side, picking a name like Emmett (or Carden, or Reeves) for a daughter would likely have people assuming she's a brother if you have any boy's down the line.

    Maven- I think this is perfectly usable as a name, but that there as similar names that are more striking (like Maeve and Mavis.)

    I love Greta, and actually think it compliments a lot of your boy picks nicely if you plan on having more kiddos (like Rawlins, Kit, and Reeves,) likewise I could see it working well in a sister set with Arden or Maven (or similar variations of either of those names.)

    Zara- pretty but seems like the odd one out on your list, much like Gabriel is the odd o e out for your boys. And like Gabriel I'd say ti wither table this one or keep it as a possible middle with another name.

    My favorites on your list currently are Greta and Arden.

    Arden- I love Arden so much, I think it’s a really strong and tailored choice for a girl. It’s unisex but I think it works better for a girl and if I didn’t have a cousin named Auden, I would have Arden high on my list

    Carden- I don’t hate it but I much prefer Arden.

    Emmett- much prefer it on a boy and I can’t really picture it on a girl

    Greta- I have a negative association with this but there’s nothing wrong with it as a name. It’s sweet and uncommon

    Maven- I really like the sound of this. It’s a more modern sounding alternative to Maeve

    Reeves- I think the S on this is a little awkward but I like Reeve on a girl

    Zara- I love Zara! She’s sweet and spunky. I picture a mischievous little princess

    My favorites are Arden, Maven, and Zara.
