I'm early in the pregnancy but I've spent all weekend stressing and being negative about it and I absolutely love names so now I'm list making to generate enthusiasm.

I like a massive range of names from long, flowery ones to American surname-y ones. I have 2 daughters called Savannah and Jessica.

Please give your brutally honest opinions of my 'short'lists and suggest anything else you can think of.

Arabella, Avery, Araminta, Cassidy, Felicity, Francesca, Georgina, Hannah, Isla, Kayleigh, Matilda, Miranda, Madison, Natasha, Nicole, Ophelia, Rhiannon, Zara

Aaron, Aiden, Callum, Felix, Finley, Harrison, Isaac, Jackson, Logan, Morgan, Nicholas, Nathaniel, Oscar, Patrick, Reuben, Samuel, Talon, William, Zachary

I feel like there's a lot of names that would work with your DCs names, but here is just a few of my own suggestions:
Maria, Julia, Tessa, Silvia, Alana.

Out of your names I really like Felicity, Miranda, Kayleigh (prefer the spelling Kaylee) and Matilda.
For boys I like Oscar, Samuel, Zachary (Zach) and Aiden.

I think you have some lovely names there but Hannah is a bit too similar to Savannah in my opinion so I'd rule that one out. Out of the names you've listed I think Georgina, Arabella, Callum and Zachary would go best with your other dc names. Have you considered Georgia?

Love Cassidy and Zachary, beautiful taste.

Good point about Hannah. I like Alana from everything's suggestions but that's probably got the same problem attached. I've never liked Georgia as much as Georgina for some reason.

I really like all of the names on both your lists apart from Araminta and Talon. Agree that Hannah/Savannah sound quite similar. If I had to choose a favourite from each list if probably go with Matilda and Isaac.

As brutal honesty is allowed, I will say Kayleigh is not nice, especially spelt Kaylee - not classy at all! (But I have to confess I loved it when I was a teenager, my tastes have changed so much). Araminta goes too far the other way and is quite posh (and doesn't go with Jessica and Savannah). I think Cassidy is nice from your list.

For boys, anything apart from Talon!

haha, Araminta and Talon aren't popular then!

I know I've got names that are at opposite extremes of what most people like - I did say I like a wide range!

Zachary is looking like a favourite for boys - I do love it. Possibly Cassidy or Matilda for a girl.

Hmmm, decisions descisions!

My favourites from your list are Francesca, Isla, Natasha, Zara for a girl and Nicholas, Samuel, Reuben, William for a boy.

In my little old humble opinion the names; Zachary, Morgan, Nathaniel & William sound best with your two girls names.
Felicity, Georgina, Francesca & Ophelia sound good if you have a third DD.

Nathaniel & Francesca are my favourite names from your lists. Isla is also beautiful, but I guess it depends if you want a similar length of name to you other girls names? If so Isla doesn't go, if that makes sense?

My personal favourites of your shortlist:

Felicity, Francesca, Georgina, Isla, Matilda, Zara

Aaron, Felix, Nicholas, Oscar, Samuel, William

For a girl I love Miranda and for a boy Felix, Oscar, or Zachary
