Good list from MN's...!

Teddy as in Edward? Not so keen on Miles or Theo.

Love all the girls names, esp Matilda!

Now off to play on the baby name finder...!

All the names are ok and all seem quite popular. No one name stands out apart from Teddy, would use Edward and keep Teddy as a nn. Teddy on a fully grown man would just seem wrong.

I like your boys names. Not so keen on the girls names - Grace is nice but a bit too popular, Amelie has been done to death since the Audrey Tatou film, Annabel is ok and I really don't like Matilda.

I have got an Annabel, so I am a little biased but also love matilda. For boys, I like Oscar, Theo but prefer Edward for Teddy.

I like Grace and Miles - they seem to be the least 'trendy' of the list (even though Grace is popular).
Grace is lovely.
Amelie - super faddy and will date hugely (Never knew an Amelie until the film came out)
Matilda - OK - Tilly is horrid, but Tilda is nice.
Annabel - bit dull.

Finn - too many Finn names. Boring and faddy.
Miles - lovely, classic name
Oliver - ok
Oscar - no
Teddy - Edward is fabulous. Teddy as a nn only
Theo - only as a nn for Theodore. Not keen on Theo though.

Finn - don't like, always think of fish fins
Miles - like
Oliver - OK
Oscar - don't like
Teddy - a toy's name
Theo - like

Amelie - sounds like you're trying to avoid the (nicer IMO) Amelia and Emily
Annabel - like
Grace - like
Matilda - don't like

From your list I'd go for Theo Miles or Annabel Grace

Finn - ok, but more of a nn for me, prefer full names for birth certificate
Miles - not keen
Oliver - lovely name, my fave here
Oscar - like this
Teddy- I love Edward as a name, but to me Teddy is simply a nn of this, not a name on its own
Theo - not keen

Amelie - pretty
Annabel - ok, popular, love the name Anna
Grace - pretty
Matilda - love

Boys
Finn - love, not faddy, I know some of all ages
Miles - It's ok, a bit dull though
Oliver - way too many but it's a nice name
Oscar - I really like Oscar
Teddy - dislike
Theo - not keen

Girls
Amelie - prefer Amelia. I know an adult (37) Amelie
Annabel - prefer Anna
Grace - really hate this!
Matilda - The best on your list

I've found the opposite Edmundo, I never even met any Finns until recently, and don't know any over primary school age.
