Favourites from your list are Matthew and Katelynn (although would spell it Caitlin) and least favourite are Oliver and Olivia.

Boys:
Fave is Dylan or Matthew.
Least fave Archie/Alfie, much too cutesy.

Girls:
Megan or Phoebe are my faves. If Keira was Ciara though that would be my top choice.
Least faves are Ella, Eva, Sophia, Gracie, Olivia, Amelia....they're overused. Oh, and Lola because of the Lolita/showgirl thing.

LilyKing0909 Sat 28-Nov-15 12:54:53

So many different opinions!

DeputyPecksBentBeak Sat 28-Nov-15 13:00:14

Isaac <biased>

Hayleigh really caught my eye from your list. You don't come across many nowadays. A bit like Emma, but that's had a revival in the last few years I think. I'd probably spell it Hayley though.

LilyKing0909 Sat 28-Nov-15 13:04:05

Yeah, I love the name! Yet there isn't that many around - Hayley is a nice spelling and I like that it's the original, but I just like the way Haileigh looks - if we decide on it, I'll ask family too

LilyKing0909 Sat 28-Nov-15 13:04:46

*Hayleigh ;) even I can't spell it! Maybe I should go with Hayley

TheDaerieQueene Sat 28-Nov-15 13:09:39

Boys - I love Edward, Elliot (prefer with one 't' for some reason) and Matthew. Of the three I think Matthew is the most underused if that matters to you.

Girls - Love Amelia and Isabella (but think they are very popular) Sophia (but there's the pronunciation issue - is the ending like Maria or Mariah?) and Penelope. I'd probably go for Penelope because it is a little less used than some of the other options, and the nicknames are cute.

Sophronia Sat 28-Nov-15 14:30:56

My favourites are...

Matthew
Luke
Edward
Nathan
Zachary
Harry

Ella
Eva
Sophia
Isabella
Roseanna - spelled Rosanna
Penelope

Boys:
Noah - love it. Very popular but popular names are that way for a reason!
Oliver - quite like it. Have a few negative associations though.
Isaac - love it. One of my favourites
Elliott - love it. And also quite unusual.
Dylan - love it
Ethan - quite like it
Aidan - love it
Archie - really like it
Alfie - quite like it
Louie - not overly keen but I do like Lewis and quite like Louis
Matthew - like it. Good, solid name
Luke - not keen
Tommy - like it but only as a nn for Thomas
Edward - really like it
Nathan - not overly keen but love Nathaniel - no logic there, really!
Charlie - not keen. Would only use as a nn fro Charles
Bailey - really like it
Riley - quite like it
Finn - like it
Finley - really like it
Zachary - love it
Hayden - really like it
Phoenix - like it but think it's a bit 'out there' - esp compared to others
Harry - really like it

One of the best boy lists I've seen I think. I'd choose Elliot and my other favourites are Zachary, Noah, Isaac, Aidan and Dylan.

Girls:
Ella - like it
Eva - really like it
Rosie - really like it
Evie - it's ok. Would use as nn for Evelyn or Evangeline though
Sophia - really like it
Katie - like it
Gracelyn - it's ok but I much prefer Grace
Gracie - ditto to above
Olivia - like it
Emilia - not overly keen. Don't like the 'meel' sound
Amelia - ditto to above
Hayleigh - really like it. Would probably spell Hayley
Isabella - really like it
Gabriella - really like it
Tia - not keen
Charlotte - really like it
Megan - it's ok
Evelyn - quite like it
Roseanna - quite like it
Annabelle - really like it
Keira - really like it
Lola - it's ok
Katelyn - quite like it
Penelope - not keen at all
Phoebe - really like it

I think my favourite might be Hayleigh. Followed by Isabella, Annabelle, Gabriella and Charlotte
