Sawyer - too American for me
Gabriel - love it
Edward(Teddy) - not a fan of Thomas The Tank Victoriana names
Casper - love it
Sebastian - love it
Seth - love it
Ezra - love it
Spencer - unusual and rather good
Xavier - too X Men

Clementine - lovely but I'd feel too poncey using it

Scarlett - too Amber/Paige
Megan - very very very dull indeed
Violet - nice but v trendy
Sydney - only like Cyd
Robin - nice but prefer with a y
Gwen - sturdy plain name

Why not Sidney or Robin for a boy?
Why not Sawyer for a girl?

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Clementine and Sebastian.

Robyn was meant to be spelt with a y.

MrsPatMustard Mon 10-Nov-14 20:25:07

Boys: Isaac, Gabriel, Edward, Seth are nice. Hate Caspar.

Girls: Love Clementine, Scarlett and Violet. Piper is just vile - please don't do it.

Gabriel happens to be my all-time favourite boys' name, so obviously that would be my top pick. Also really like Isaac, although its current popularity puts me off a little.

My girls' choice would be Paloma - it's exotic and unusual, without being weird, and it's also pretty straightforward to pronounce. Like the dove/Picasso connections too. Second choice would probably be Clementine - it's very pretty, but possibly a bit stereotypically posh, and I'm not a fan of the nickname Clemmie (which just makes me think clammy/phlegmy). Not a fan of Sydney or Megan (although Sidonie is quite nice), and Saffron just reminds me of Ab Fab (plus I've taught a few quite spoilt/entitled Saffrons, so some bad associations there).
