Lillian - Lily as nn

Pandora - hmm in theory ok but I don't like the nicknames Pan or Dora and it's too long not to nn.
Cassandra (or Cassidy) - Cassandra is classy and Cassie is sweet. Cassidy is awful.
Lillian - I think dated still, Lillia is pretty.
Elsa - Too plain jane.

Theodore - Nice, Theo is a sweet name, quite soft sounding.
Lucas - My favourite, it works in lots of countries, nice strong name for a man
Dexter - I think this is very erm 'common' now.
Xander - Nice as a nn to Alexander but not good as a stand alone name
Isaac - I prefer Ivan but it's ok

I think by miles Lucas and Cassandra are the best.

Did you know in the myths Pandora, Cassandra and Lillian all got pretty crap parts? Sorry.

I think Panda could be quite cute as nn for a tiny Pandora.

Love Pandora and Cassandra.

For boys, my favourites are Dexter and Xander. Not keen on Theo.

Really don't like Pandora - too 'try hard' if you know what I mean.
Quite like both Cassandra and Cassidy
Lilian is okay-ish
Elsa - quite pretty, but just makes me think of the lion.

Theodore - poncey, Theo is ok though.
Dexter - awful awful awful (sorry!)
Lucas, Xander and Isaac - all fabulous names. love them all!!

If you like Theodore for a boy, what about Thea for a girl?

Pandora - box
Cassandra (or Cassidy) - like Cassandra nn Cassie. Cassidy too surnamey
Lillian - like
Elsa - OK

Theodore - like, and Theodore Anthony sounds great
Lucas - OK
Dexter - too surnamey
Xander - like, but too much "an" sound with Xander Anthony
Isaac - like

I really like Elsa and Lillian. Also like the above suggestions of Thea (love this) and Lillia.

I like Isaac best of the boys' names, followed by Lucas (although not a huge fan of Luke which is probably inevitable).

Pandora - like the name, story puts me off
Cassandra (or Cassidy) - love Cassandra, but I'd never dare to use it because of the story. Really don't like Cassidy. Cassiopeia is another 'Cass-' name, but again not great reviews from mythology!
Lillian - a bit too old for my liking, prefer Liliana
Elsa - not keen, it's too old-fashioned for me

Theodore - like
Lucas - like
Dexter - not keen
Xander - love this name (but I'm biased - DS's name, if next is a girl, we'll prossibly go for Chloë!)
Isaac - ok

Pandora - Panit will always be Adrian Mole's love interest to me. Its just a bit too pretty, if that makes sense?
Cassandra (or Cassidy) - I like this name. I like both Sandy and Cassie as shortenings.
Lillian - I like this too, presumably with Lily as nickname.
Elsa - don't like this. Just a bit harsh to my ears, and rather unpleasant.

Theodore - lovely name, and Theo is a super nickname. I know a 28 year old Theodore, and he is not the least bit poncey.
Lucas - ok, much prefer Theo
Dexter - too american for me.
Xander - don't like this one at all.
Isaac - ok, but prefer Theo.

From the girl's list, I like Lillian and Elsa the best. Lillian is stronger and more tasteful than the ubiquitous Lily. Elsa is great, little used, but not made up, I might be tempted to have Elsa as a nn for Elizabeth though.

From the boy's list Isaac is by far the best, with Theodore second. Lucas is ok, but very common and I don't like Dexter at all, too surnamey.

Lillian and Xander are my favourites
