Caleb. Don't like
Harris. Awful
Leo A bit Meh.
Max is just about okay.

Amber Jade. Is gorgeous.
Eden. No. Getting tedious and over used. Plus I don't like the sound of it.
Hazel. Very underused and Sophisticated. Great name.
Iris. No. Harsh
Ivy. Sweet and pretty. But a bit meh.
Joy. Simple elegant classic and will certainly sum up how you feel when you meet her.
Piper. Gorgeous.
Skye. No very dated
Willow is beautiful.

Love the names Leo and Max for boys.

Piper and Iris are gorgeous girls names! Not sure about Eden but love the name Edie/Edith.

Which are your favourites?

Really love Leo for a boy (or Lionel). Quite like Max but less keen on the other two.

Hazel, Iris and Willow are my favourites for the girls. I like Amber too but not paired with Jade.

From your boys list I like Max best, then Leo.
From your girls list I love Hazel and Iris and I like Willow and Amber too.
Hazel joy or Iris joy?

Thanks!.. Leo and max are my favourite for the boys and the girls I really love piper, joy and iris now warming a bit more to hazel.. So hard to decide!.. Trying to think of names which aren't unusual but also not too common!

I know a little Iris. She was the Greek messenger goddess who personified the rainbow which is rather lovely.

It was 104 in the top girls' names last year, so just outside the top 100 but not so weird as to be a talking point.

I like Harris best from your boys list.

Joy is lovely, and also like Iris and Hazel. I think Piper will probably date.

I quite like Caleb, but I wouldn't use it. Harris is unusual with a nice ring. I like Leo best and then Max.

Ivy, Joy, Hazel, Iris and Willow are timeless (my grandmother and two of her sisters had names on that list). Piper will date and Skye and Amber Jade are a bit 90's

Stealing this whole list, lovely!

Caleb - not one of my favourites, but it's fine.
Harris - too surnamey.
Leo - I like this a lot!
Max - I like as a nickname for Maximilian (or Maxwell, etc.) Seems too insubstantial on its own.

Amber Jade - no. I'm sorry, but it just seems trashy to me.
Eden - garden of, or Anthony. I wouldn't use this, personally, but I think it's increasing in popularity.
Hazel - I like this.
Iris - lovely!
Ivy - like this too
Joy - also lovely
Piper - don't like it much.
Skye - not keen on this either
Willow - don't mind it but not as nice as some as the others
