Like Albie, love Isla, Neve and particularly Esmee. Definitely don't like Winter.

Love all except winter. Winter is a season not a name. Also love albie for a baby not sure about adult.

Love Esme. Arthur is nice.

Love Niamh, but not loving Neve.

RaeSkywalker Sun 15-May-16 20:04:30

Love Arthur! Really dislike Albie, sorry. Charles is nice- would you use the nn Charlie?

Isla is a bit to well-used for me but very lovely. I like Esme and Neve (easier to spell it your way that Nimah!)

RaeSkywalker Sun 15-May-16 20:05:02

^"than", not "that"

TheWeeBabySeamus1 Sun 15-May-16 20:06:22

None of the boys names are really to my taste (sorry blush ) but if I had to choose it would be Charles. Arthur sounds like an old mans name and Albie is very much a small child's name so not great for when he's an teen/adult.

Neve is lovely, not keen on the others.

FurryTurnip Sun 15-May-16 20:06:32

Isla and Esme very popular at the moment, if that matters to you. Winter not great...like all the boys names though!

Arthur and Albie and Isla are sooooo sooooo common år the mo.
they're the clare debby and Rachel of the 70's

PinkParsnips Sun 15-May-16 20:08:21

Like Charles, nn Charlie?
Albie OK
Arthur don't like sorry

Girls names are all lovely except Winter, also like previous poster I think Niamh is a nicer spelling.

BennyTheBall Sun 15-May-16 20:08:46

I like Esme but it's very common.

Our niece is Esme, but no-one knows how to pronounce it! Es-mee or Es-may - she gets both.

Violethenry Sun 15-May-16 20:09:12

Thanks ladies, your all being kinder than I expected haha.
Yes I would use Charlie as a nn for Charles and do prefer neve spelling to Niamh as I have known that to get neem confused

MardleBum Sun 15-May-16 20:09:15

Arthur or Charles (Albie is horrible) and Esme.

Dollius01 Sun 15-May-16 20:10:30

Arthur and Esme, no contest!

TheodoreEvelynMoseby Sun 15-May-16 20:16:25

Love Charles for boys name. All girls names are nice but not Winter, not for me I'm afraid

EnriqueTheRingBearingLizard Sun 15-May-16 20:16:42

I'd swerve Albie and Winter to be honest, but the other names are nice.

Madbengalmum Sun 15-May-16 20:18:35

Love All of your boys names, but dont like winter, sorry.

DramaAlpaca Sun 15-May-16 20:20:03

Arthur & Charles are fine, Albie would be cute on a small child but I can't see it on an adult.

Isla & Esme are nice, I can't see Winter as a first name, and I really really dislike Neve - but I love Niamh.

NoCapes Sun 15-May-16 20:20:11

Neev looks awful like that, just looks like you can't spell properly

NoCapes Sun 15-May-16 20:20:35

Oh Neve - but still

UmbongoUnchained Sun 15-May-16 20:21:38

I like all of those girls names but none of the boys names in afraid.

SuburbanRhonda Sun 15-May-16 20:23:56

I agree, Neve doesn't look like a person's name. It looks like you chose Niamh but couldn't be bothered to make the effort to spell it correctly.

I don't think people will get the spelling wrong - it's quite popular these days.

HouseOfBiscuits Sun 15-May-16 20:25:58

Arthur - OK but a bit fuddy-duddy
Albie - OK but prefer Albert nn Bertie
Charles - quite nice

Neve - OK but would spell it Niamh
Isla - faddy
Winter - like
Esme - not keen

Hamiltoes Sun 15-May-16 20:30:22

I love Winter! Second would be Esme, but its getting quite common.

Not really that keen on the boys names sorry Op

mrsschu Sun 15-May-16 20:31:30

Arthur - ok. I love nn Art though
Albie - like it but would probably use Albert on the BC
Charles - boring

Neve - please don't spell it like this, it's completely made up and looks like you can't spell. Niamh is fine although they were two a penny when I was growing up in Ireland
Isla - fine, will date quickly
Winter - awful
Esme - love it as long as it's pronounced Es-may
