    Looking for name critiques/suggestions

    Hi everyone! Though I hopefully don't have children for a long while, it's always fun to come up with names, right? Anyway, what are your thoughts on these names and do you have any suggestions for me based on "my style"? Also, feel free to critique the names in my signature if you'd like. I'm still on the fence about the ones in this post, but I really love all the ones in my signature.

    Kaya/Kaia/Kayah/Kaija/etc. (I basically like EVERY spelling variation of this name)
    Tifany (I think Tiffany is a bit trite...but I think spelling it like this adds a bit of freshness)
    Kassie (I don't think it's substantial enough to stand on its own but I don't like any of its longer versions...)
    Kelsea (see Tifany)
    Kimberley (see Tifany and Kelsea)

    And just for fun, my biggest guilty pleasures: Splash and Cascade.
    21-year-old boy who just happens to like baby names.

    Girls: Amberley, Astrid, Athena, Cypress, Darcy, Kassia,
    Kimberley, Laurel, Lindsay, Lisandra, Lissette, Maryelle, Misty,
    Rosemarie, Saba, Sabine, Sky, Thalia

    Boys: Alexander, Bjorn, Blair, Erik, Fable, Isaac, Kasey, Layne,
    Mark, Maverick, Montana, Riley, River, Sage, Satchel,
    Shane, Shea, Shepherd, Slade, Thatcher, Zander, Zane

    Off of your list I really love Kaya (although I perfer it spelled Kaiya), this name is just gorgeous! Honestly besides Lilly and Kaya, I'm not really a fan of your other names. Not trying to be mean, they just arn't my style. Kaya and Lilly are gorgeous though!!
    Please pray for Lucy, her and her family need your support:

    Imogen - NMS just seems very old
    Kaya/Kaia/Kayah/Kaija/etc. - Not big on Kaia by itself but I do love Makaia
    Ailsa - Ehh not bad but not great
    Tifany - I agree but she will be correcting everyone her whole life
    Summer - a little boring
    Autumn - Lovely just great
    Flannery - Oh i have VERY BAD personal associations with this name
    Franziska - I think Francesca would be better
    Ivy - a little plain
    Fern - to planty does not have the flow of Ivy
    Kassie - Kassie, especially with a K, is not enough on its own
    Kelsea (see Tifany) It will only cause her problems when she has to keep correcting people
    Kimberley - again sorry I just don't think a 'fresher' spelling is worth it
    Lianna - I think Liliana would flow better
    Lilly - With 2 L's it seems surnamey it is a lot chicer as Lily
    Lilianne/Lillyanne- I still think Liliana is better
    Lindsay - Perfection!! That is my name, same spelling and all!
    Greta - ok but a little fairy-tale to em
    Merry- Christmas? Mary is better or maybe Meri as a nn for Meredith?
    Misty - seems dated but not bad
    Riane - a little to kre8tive
    Siobhan - I want to like it but it seems so masculine to me
    Sky - very nice I had Autumn Skye on my list at one point

    You have some very good names on here. You style does seem all over the place so I don't know that I could make any suggestions.

    Good Luck
