Anya - quite nice, not too popular
Bella - over used imo
Bonnie - ok
Delilah -no because of the song
Elsie - ok
Freya - ok, but popular
Hattie - if short for Harriet, not on its own
Honey - no, no, no
Shayah-Sophia - as a double name? NO.
Shayah - not really to my taste, prefer Shya or Shay

Bradley - no, surnamey and dated
Denver - no, it's a place in the US
Tobias - lovely
Zayne - no no no

Girls
Anya - nice but very of the moment, will date
Bella - how about as a nickname for Arabella?
Bonnie - quite pretty but probably nicer on a little girl than a 40-year-old banker, scientist, High Court judge, you get the picture
Delilah - no
Elsie - very of the moment and not particularly nice IMO. How about Elise?
Freya - will date her
Hattie - nice as a nickname for Harriet
Honey - please, no
Shayah-Sophia - please please please not Shayah. Sophia is lovely.

Boys
Bradley - not keen, seems 80s to me though I know it's not really
Denver - it's ok. Never heard it as a name
Tobias - love this, would shorten to Toby
Zayne - feel I ought to hate this but actually think it's quite cool!

Girls
Anya - really like it
Bella - nice
Bonnie - ok, a bit twee
Delilah - not keen
Elsie - like it
Freya - not keen
Hattie - not as a name on its own - nn for Harriet
Honey - like it but not sure I'd dare use it
Shayah-Sophia - Sophia is nice but not sure about Shayah, it sounds made up.

I like Delilah, not keen on any of the others.

Bradley - too surnamey
Denver - place name

Zayne - too much like zany. How about Zachary?

Anya - quite nice
Bella - OK as nickname for Belinda, Annabella or Isabella
Bonnie - a dog's name
Delilah - lovely, with Della as nn
Elsie - too try-hard "old lady"
Freya - faddy
Hattie - OK as nickname for Harriet
Honey - a food
Shayah-Sophia - Sophia is lovely, no need to add Shayah

Here's the shortlist of baby names I'm considering that I generated with Mumsnet's Baby Name Finder. Let me know what you think.

Boys
Bradley
Denver
Tobias
Zayne

Girls
Anya
Bella
Bonnie
Delilah
Elsie
Freya
Hattie
Honey
Shayah-Sophia

we were thinking 'Shayah-Sophia' as the middle name for a girl, just can't decide on the first name, Bella's my favourite, but we can't decide, any imputs or ideas would be much appreciated, thanks smile
