Leela looks made up (perhaps it isn't)

Personally not keen on Alice

Love all the others!

Boys:
I love Edward.
Alexander is ok, but I don't like the shortening of Alex, which you may not have a choice over.
Henry is ok. I much prefer Harry.
I don't like James/Jamie.

Girls:
Isla is gorgeous, but fashionable and very 'now'.
Alice is lovely.
Leela just sounds odd to me.
Elizabeth is just beautiful! So many lovely nn's that an Elizabeth will always be an Elizabeth if that makes sense confused I would definitely use Elizabeth over Eliza.

I love all the boys names!

I'd only go for Leela if the whole family are dedicated Doctor Who fanatics (though I do like it).

Isla is OK, and I think Alice and Eliza/Beth are lovely.

Henry and Alice/Elizabeth

Not keen on Isla or Leela, the others are all great.

I love Eliza (was on my list when I was pregnant with DS) and Edward is lovely too (would he be Ed / Woody?)
One of my best friends has a daughter called Isla - v pretty name.

Like all the boys' names - Alexander is probably my favourite.
Elizabeth and Alice are lovely. Less keen on Isla, and don't like Leela.

Henry James
Elizabeth/Eliza

are great names

ColonelBrandonsBiggestGroupie Sun 12-Jun-11 20:48:40

I like Edward, Alice and Elizabeth. Really dislike Henry, sorry.

ScabbyHorse Sun 12-Jun-11 20:51:30

Love Elizabeth and Edward

Hassled Sun 12-Jun-11 20:53:16

All nice boys names (Jamie the least favourite).
Girls - Leela is a 1970s Dr Who companion. Alice is lovely. Isla/Elizabeth OK/nice.

boys
Edward - lovely and great range of nn
Alexander - OK but I always think of Alex as a girls name
Henry - OK
James/jamie - like James but not Jamie - like nn of Jim/Jimmy

girls
Isla - pretty but getting popular
Alice - lovely
Leela - ?! is this a real name?!
Elizabeth/Eliza - lovely and good nn potential

Alexander is my favourite of your boys' names by far; Edward is okay but prefer Edmund. Not keen on James or Henry.

Girls: Alice, Leela or Eliza would be my choice. Arf at all the people wondering if Leela is a real name! I know a lovely Lila pron. Leela (mum is Hungarian).

Never liked Elizabeth and Isla is a bit meh, also very popular right now.

Leela - don't like
Elizabeth/Eliza - nice

Leela just say futurama to me. i love Lilah, but leela does sound made up, sadly. and i think stands out because the rest of your names are very common.

SilverSky Sun 12-Jun-11 21:52:32

Henry & Eliza for me

BiggestPiggyOnTheFarm Sun 12-Jun-11 21:56:19

Alice and James I think, both are lovely names.

I know a lot of Isla's so thats too popular for me, Leela I've only known through futurama so not too keen. Elizabeth is nice but a bit too dull for me.

I don't like Henry, do like Edward, could take or leave Alexander.
