A number of your girl's names are the same as my faves...I have 2 DDs.

I will add...Tabitha, Violet.

I LOVE Tristan...I was thinking about that name earlier today. Also Christian.

Love Tabitha, not sure on Violet. I can't think of any nns I like for Violet.

Tristan is so far my front runner for a boy. I love it!

Lucia - definitely going on the list. Nina and Marisa have been vetoed by DH. (I shall sneakly add Marisa though!)

Thanks both smile

Marisa is very pretty. Lovely in fact...I've never thought about that one! Tabitha is great imo because Tabby is also cute....I wanted it for DD2 but DH said no way. sad I also love Primrose.

LOVE Lucille and Giselle. Underused, but not weird, and pretty without being too sickly sweet. Gorgeous.

The only girls names I dislike on your list are Hayley (too 80s) and Rochelle (stripper name).

I love Nathaniel and Dominic from your boys list and also really like the classic and biblical names - Benjamin, Isaac, Joshua - although these arenviously more popular.

Will add:
Vashti, Rhiannon, Corinna, Tamsin
Conrad, Bryn, Marcus, Ambrose

Girls:

LOVE & would use: Abigail, Emilia, Charlotte, Imogen, Jemima, Meredith.
Wouldn't use:
Giselle- makes me think of a deer
Isobel- pretty but popular and trendy.
Scarlett- trendy and makes me think of a stripper.
Rochelle- just don't like sorry
Darcey: agree with your DH, dare I say it quite 'chavvy' around here.

BOYS:
All classic and lovely names tbh.
LOVE: Dominic, Isaac, James, Nathaniel (nn Nate?), Ryan.
Not as keen on:
Oliver- too popular
Jake/Joshua- just don't like.
Ethan- really don't like, tends to be over used and & bit chavvy around here.

Of your girls' names list OP I like best

Giselle, Jemima, Lucille, Imogen, Naomi and Ophelia in that order.

Love Tabitha and Marisa. Ooh Rhiannon and Tamsin nominated too!

From your boys' names, top for me would be Harry, Matthew, Oliver and Rhys.

Tristan, dreamy but he'd better be able to take care of himself.

And offer Alexander (Alex or Xander) as a suggestion.
