For a girl, What do you think of:

Boys:
Campbell
Xander
Hudson
Cooper

Girls:
Paisley
Zaria
Payton
Harper - too Beckham?

Any other suggestions?

If you are coming on to tell me how awful a name Addison is, too late! She's 3 now and suits it perfectly so clearly we have different tastes wink

Love all the boys, don't like any of the girls sorry. Especially Paisley. Do you want more / alternatives / just opinions?

What about Fraser for a boy?

ChristineDaae Sat 20-Jul-13 10:55:39

Yep all suggestions welcome!!

ThisIsYourSong Sat 20-Jul-13 11:52:03

Mackenzie
Quinn
Leigh
Lauren (not sure that fits your brief but just thought I'd throw it in there)

Do you like Eve? Eva or Ava

Paisley is dreadful (I am from NI, so the name has certain associations for me).

I know a lovely 16 year old girl called Tate. Is that the style you are after ?

Thumbwitch Sat 20-Jul-13 13:18:07

NOT Cooper, unless you are THAT big a fan of Private Practice.

Other boy names are fine though, and I also like Fraser.

Paisley and Payton are horrible names, IMO. I don't mind Addison but I can't cope with those two.

Harper - well, Harper Lee predates the Beckhams by a LOT so no issue with that.

ZolaBuddleia Sat 20-Jul-13 15:05:42

I like all your boy choices, but not inspired by the girls.

Avery?
Greta?
Greer?
Wren?

Wishfulmakeupping Sat 20-Jul-13 15:07:23

Parker or carter for a boy?

GirlWithTheDirtyShirt Sat 20-Jul-13 15:11:30

I like Payton and love Harper. I also like Estée.

I think boys names are much more difficult. I quite like Xander. I'd probably go with Sebastian.

ChristineDaae Sat 20-Jul-13 18:01:38

I LOVE Avery but would be way too greys anatomy! Never watched private practice...I assume there's a cooper?
I like Tate but seems like a boys name?

Tate can be short for Tatiana.

Your names:
Boys -
Campbell -- I prefer Cameron to Campbell.
'Camp' is too tempting to wags even though it's not pronounced that way.
Xander -- dislike. Sounds a bit precious. I knew an Alexandra who called herself Xan. She was a bit up herself.
Hudson -- not bad. Hudson river valley is gorgeous.
Cooper -- I know a doberman mix named Cooper but known affectionately as Pooper. I think the rhyme would suggest itself to other boys in school too.

Girls -
Paisley -- Not bad and would go with Addison.
Zaria -- not bad but a bit frilly/girly with Addison.
Payton -- I really dislike this name but would go with Addison.
Harper - I really dislike this name but would go with Addison.

Suggestions:
Girls:

Elliott
Ellison
Everly

Taylor

Kendall
McKinley

I know an Addison whose brother is Robbie.

ChristineDaae Sat 20-Jul-13 21:39:49

Math I like a lot of names on your lists! Quite a few on there that we scrubbed for particular reasons but a few we haven't thought of

Aubrey/Aubree for a girl?

Thumbwitch Sun 21-Jul-13 01:05:46

ChristineDaae - yes there is an Addison and a Cooper in Private Practice. (If you're a Grey's Anatomy fan, how is it you've never watched PP as well? It's a spin off - despite everyone sleeping with everyone else in it, I quite like it smile )

manicinsomniac Sun 21-Jul-13 01:53:02

I like all your suggestions except for Paisley.

They've already been suggested but my immediate thoughts for another girl were Avery, Kennedy, Kendall, Aubrey, Bailey, Taylor and Emery and for a boy, Parker, Austin and Carter.

Otherwise:

Boys:
Ashton, Caleb, Cory, Jesse, Tyler, Phoenix, Maddox, Mason, Porter, Preston

Girls:
Adalyn, Aubrey, Brooklynn, Briley, Brynn, Cleo, Dakota, Farryn, Falon, Genesis, Gracelyn, Jordan, Jayla, Jada, Jazzlyn, Kayla, Kendra, Kenzie, Madison, Morgan, Piper, Payson, Rowan, Reagan, Riley, Reese, Sutton.

Hudson and Harper are the best of your list.
Paisley is absolutely awful. Why would you want to be named after an ugly pattern?

Eastpoint Sun 21-Jul-13 06:11:36

Piper - girl

Boy
Lyon
Sloan
Walker
Mitchell

mathanxiety Sun 21-Jul-13 07:12:44
