Love Aria, Athena, Clementine, Delilah and Pearlsmile

Alberta reminds me too much of the Canadian city, Octavia is a bit passe - it had a moment a few years back I recall, don't like Maeve or Una at all.

Seth, Solomon and Walter are fabsmile

Amos is a bit blah, Chester, Fraser and Nelson are very 'surnamey' and quite 'American' in sound, and I'm not a fan of Jasper or Otis.

I like Amos. I know an Amos my daughter's age (3yrs) and he is a cutey - doesn't sound at all blah to me. He is A-moss.

Only like Maeve tbh - Bertie for a girl is horrible, imho.

Solomon - okay but much prefer Simeon
Amos - hate this, sorry
Seth - I detest this name though most people on MN seem to love it. It sounds evil and hissy to me, sorry.
Chester - bad
Otis - worse
Jasper -ok
Fraser - bad
Walter - Would he be Wally?? - okay but much prefer Wilfred
Nelson - awful

Maeve is really lovely.

Hmmm, mixed opinions! Chester has been my fave for a while, it's slipping a bit now though! Whats the issue with it??

Tummytickler, your kids names are awesome! What sort of reaction have you had? Do most of the other kids you know have top 50 type names? As I think most of the ones I know do which Is why I worry! Also what are your fave names at the mo? I think I like your taste!!
