I like Natalie and Juliette.
Would pass on the others I think.

I like Juliette, Douglas and Edgar from your list.

Only1scoop Sat 06-Dec-14 21:56:23

Like Clarissa and Josephine.

Love Douglas.

Sorry not keen on other boys names.

applecatchers36 Sat 06-Dec-14 21:58:21

Josephine and Reuben.

I like Juliet (without the garnish) Douglas and Edgar. Quite like Josie but not as Josephine but not that fussed about the others.

TipseyTorvey Sat 06-Dec-14 22:03:50

I really like Clarissa,Edgar and Reuben. I'm not keen on Natalie or Douglas as they may be shortened to Nat and Duggie but just my random view smile

Clarissa - a bit frilly for my taste, prefer Clara

Josephine - like it a lot, it's long without being frilly, & I like Josie

Natalie - I think it's a bit 1980s, but it's a nice name, as long as she doesn't end up getting called Nat

Juliette - I much prefer Juliet.

Douglas - it's not to my taste, but it's OK

Reuben - like this best of your boy names

Edgar - really dislike this one, sorry

Reuben is nice not a fan of the rest

As a josephene Clarissa don't do it. confused Every other josephene I've met hates their name profusely and they've all been called Jo not josie

shakemysilliesout Sat 06-Dec-14 22:10:46

I like Natalie. Juliet is good too but not juliette

elotrolado Sat 06-Dec-14 23:24:34

Quite like Josephine, Juliette and Reuben

calzone Sat 06-Dec-14 23:25:46

Josephine and Douglas.

Juliet (prefer this spelling) and Reuben. Dont like the rest, sorry OP.

VixxenPlusAllTheOtherReindeers Sun 07-Dec-14 11:28:03

All really bad

AWombWithoutAFoof Sun 07-Dec-14 11:29:47

I like Juliet (only this spelling though) and Josephine.

Not keen on Clarissa, but quite like the others. Juliet (rather than Juliette) and Edgar are my favourites.

Josephine or Juliette/Juliet for a girl.
Edgar probably best of the boys.

I like Juliet, without the added frills.
Edgar is the best of the boys', but I don't love it. Prefer Edward or Edmund.

RJnomore Sun 07-Dec-14 14:21:14

Juliet and Edgar.

Rest are awful.

(IMO obviously)

carbolicsoaprocked Sun 07-Dec-14 16:31:53

Love Natalie, my friend gets either Nat or Tali.
Love Juliet, not so keen on Juliette, looks too try-hard.
Love Reuben.
Don't like the others at all I'm afraid.

lollygagger Sun 07-Dec-14 16:45:08

I like them all. They are proper names but not super trendy or popular. Any of them would do!

CPtart Sun 07-Dec-14 16:54:25

Natalie is my all time favourite girls name, not shortened.
Josephine and Juliette are ok, again, if not shortened.
Really don't like any others , sorry.

PrincessSlayer Sun 07-Dec-14 17:26:14

I love Josephine - I know a beautiful Josephine nicknamed Joey. For boys, I think Edgar is so cool. You have an unusual yet classic name with the option of the more common nickname Ed as he gets older.
All nice choices though!

I like Juliet. None of the others im afraid.
