I'll prob regret asking but I'm extremely stuck.
I want English but not too popular. I loved Olivia but it's just too over used now!

Love these 3

Evelyn is very popular, and Ashleigh and Colette feel a bit dated. I like all your boys names, especially Samuel, but I prefer Jake as a nn for Jacob.

Evelyn & Samuel I love those two I agree I like a lot of names but there way too popular now

I like Evelyn. Ashleigh and Colette feel a bit too 1980's for my liking.

I like Edward and Samuel.

Love your boys names, except Jake which is just about ok.!

Not keen on your girls names. DS1 was due to be called olivia 19 years ago, and I still love it.

Colette and Joel

Evelyn - would have been DS's girls name (but soooo many Evies)

Samuel - is DS's name!

I like all your names other than Collette and Joel, but am a bit biased to Evelyn and Samuel!

Ah thanks! I have to agree with the Ashleigh being outdated its Dh favourite along with Chelsea and Chantelle, which I HATE!! I said I would consider Ashleigh for that reason lol

MummyPiggy87 Sun 10-May-15 20:22:59

Sorry if there is a Chelsea or Chantelle here, no offence!
I also hate my name, I'm very fussy :-/

Evelyn and esp. Evie is very popular
Ashleigh i'm not keen on as i don't like unisex names.

I think Colette is really lovely, beautiful in it's simplicity.

Edward and Joel are my favourites from your boys list, they are pretty popular but imo there's a smaller pool of nice boys names to pick from compared to girls names (of which i love loads) so it's inevitable they'll be in top 100

I've picked Joel for my son due in October

The exact same reason as you, not too out there but not common. It isn't in the top 100 anymore and I think it's perfect.

Colette is gorgeous and reminds me of a character in a French film I love.

Lovely names!

Given a choice between Ashleigh, Chelsea and Chantelle, I'd pick Ashleigh every time.

Colette for a girl.
Edward for a boy.

Colette is really pretty

I like Ashleigh but prefer it spelt 'Ashlee' looks much prettier IMO it's my cousin's name

I LOVE Samuel, fabulous name, though my DS is a Samuel.

Really like Joel and Evelyn too. Not so keen on the rest.

I really like Colette. Lettie is a cute nickname. i love all your boys names but Joel is my fave.
