Way too long a list for that!

Love name Sebastian and Issac. Not so keen on girls names. Sorry.. not what you asked.

Charles (Charlie) - My grandad, but v cool!

Lisa - a bit nothing,
Claire - my neighbour, mum, housewife
Charlene - neighbours
Mark - good school friend, cool
Hollie - little girl - not good for grown ups
Archie - Eastenders(???)
Sebastian - posh
Isaac - Newton, cool, client I work with (good nn Zac)
Rebecca - novel, my cousin

Sorry they all sound a bit vague, but it was what the names reminded me of - not many celebs in there. For naming a baby now, I would go with Peter, Isaac or Mark for a boy, or Rebecca or Georgina for a girl.

Too long a list for me too but here's my summary

Susan, Charlene, Karl, Archie, Teagan - awful, 1970s, dated names.
Sebastian, Isaac, Alex - nice names

The rest of them aren't to my taste, but are unoffensive and unmemorable.
