between me and DP! We've got a while to go but don't seem to be on the same page at all name-wise! Which of our lists would you discount and why? (Feel free to be honest - don't want to saddle child with name I think is amazing but everyone else it ever meets thinks is ridiculous)

DP's list:
Emma
Ali
Leah
Amy

Lee (boy)

My list:
Saoirse (pronounced Seer-sha)
Seren
Megan (I love this but DP HATES it with a passion!Says she'd be called Smegan?!!)
Natalia
Mercedes
Genevieve (Eve for short)

Joseph

Thanks.

I prefer your list overall OP

DP's list:
Emma- Just sooo boring
- Ali- also boring
Leah- yep, boring again
Amy- dull dull dull

Lee (boy)- Really dislike this name

My list:
Saoirse (pronounced Seer-sha)- lovely, love the way it's spelt
Seren- lovely
Megan (I love this but DP HATES it with a passion!Says she'd be called Smegan?!!)- i'm with your DP on this one
Natalia- ok
Mercedes- Awful, really awful
Genevieve (Eve for short)- gorgeous name

Joseph- really like it, prefer Joseph to Joe though

Aidan and Owen- Gorgeous names

Aaron- Don't like it

So, i'd say for a girl go for Saoirse, Seren or Genevieve.

For a boy go for Joeseph, Owen or Aidan

I think for a girl - Emma or Seren
I think for a boy - Joseph

Ah, my DS1 is called Joseph - Joe - and imo it is the best boys name ever. Of your girl's names, Genevieve with Eve or Evie for short, which is what we would have called a girl if we didn't keep having boys.

Lee is awful. Sorry.

From your list I love Joseph and Natalia. From your DPs, Ali is the best.
