My husband and I cant agree and have different ideas for names would appreciate some independent opinions.

Girls names, Madeline, Carys, Seren, Tamsin, Erin
Boys names, Sam, Ben, Jude

Not too worried about them being popular or not we just each have our favourites and are finding it difficult to compromise.

I don't think you're going to get 'indepenent' opinions, but very subjective ones from random mumsnetters (who may have different tastes than you smile), but here is my opinion:

I like Tamsin and Jude the best and dislike Madeline and Sam.

Seren and Jude

I like Seren (not come across it before, but it's pretty) & Sam.
Rachel234 is right in that it's just my personal opinion.
Maybe as you've not got too long a sort list you could just wait & see which name suits your baby best once he / she arrives?

They are all nice names, so it's not as if you'll make a 'wrong' choice

Personally I like Madeline or Seren

Any of the boys names smile

I really like all those names - sorry that's not helpful !

I like Madeline from the girl's list. The boys list is harder. I think Sam and Ben are very similar and know lots of brothers called Sam and Ben. Jude is more out there/original if this helps at all.

I don't like Carys. All the rest are much of a sameness.
Do you dislike Samuel, Samson & Benjamin? I am not a fan of NNs as full names on birth certificate.

I like all of the girls' names except for Tamsin. If I were choosing I would have either Erin or Seren.

I like Sam and Ben (I also like Samuel and Benjamin) and Jude is ok.

Girls: Really like Tamsin & Erin. Don't like Seren, it sounds like a Gypsy name. No offence to Gypsies, but unless you are one then I wouldn't use it. In my opinion. Also, I would not use Madeline as that name will forever belong to poor little Madeleine McCann.

Boys: Sam, Ben or Jude. All perfectly fine names.
