I think your surname is quite nice! But then I spent my life up to the age of 25 saddled with Kicks as a surname, so my standards are probably quite low...

I think the previous suggestion of Anton is lovely with your surname. But then it's one of my faves smile

I have an unusual 3 syllable surname too which ruled out lots of names!!
We decided a 2 syllable first name sounded best.

On our shortlist were:
Chloe
Bethan
Lauren

Joseph
Nathan
Leon

How about:
Flora, Anna, Orla, Freya, Megan

Aidan, Joel, Hugo, Alex, Ciaran

My maiden name was Taylor. First name Lynne. You wouldn't believe how many people mentioned Liz Taylor!

I feel your pain with the surname thing. I desperately loved Elizabeth as a girl's name... our surname's Taylor... I couldn't do it to a child - despite having two girls, both are Elizabethless.

I wouldn't go for S or hard C in the first name or "e" sound endings due to your surname but that's it really.

Adam, Luke, Robert, Edward (all sound lovely with James)

Laura, Abigail, May

Clara

Personally not sure a name ending in S works with the surname, but I am exhausted and therefore dim this morning.

There's nothing dodgy about your surname that means you'll have to avoid certain names. I'd avoid too many SS sounds but that's all.

Need some help looking for some suggestions of boys and girls names to go with Sienesi (sir-nee-sea). It's Italian by origin but were not so we'd rather non Italian sounding names, especially as 99% of people pronounce it incorrectly!! We'd also like to avoid anything too popular and don't mind unusual as long as its easy to pronounce and spell wink.

Thinking of James as a middle name for a boy and Poppy or Grace for a girl. Thanks!!
