Hypothetical baby names - suggestions?

This is all entirely hypothetical at the moment - but my friend has just had a baby and it got us all talking about baby names and I have been pondering ones I think I'd like to use.

On my list so far are:

George
Elliot
Rory
Sid
Arthur
Kit (Atticus)
Frankie

Thea
Lissy (Larissa, could also be shortened to Lara)
Georgia
Iris
Sylvie
Tessa
Edie

I like quite traditional names for boys, but try to avoid really common ones - I love George but think that it's really popular at the moment and that puts me off.

For girls I like strong but feminine names and like something that can have at least one nickname - the ones on my list don't really have many options for nicknames, except Larissa (which I think might be a bit too frilly), but I'm struggling to think of any options I like.

If you have any suggestions or comments on my list I'd love to hear them!

George - great, classic name
Elliot - OK though surnamey
Rory - dislike
Sid - like as nn for Sidney
Arthur - OK, a bit fusty
Kit (Atticus) - dislike
Frankie - OK as nickname for Frank or Francis

Thea - not keen
Lissy (Larissa, could also be shortened to Lara) - lovely
Georgia - lovely
Iris - not keen
Sylvie - OK, a bit faddy, prefer Sylvia
Tessa - not keen
Edie - like as nn for Edith

I like Sid short for Sidney, Kit short for Christopher, Frankie short for Francis, Frank or Franklin, Lissy short for Larissa, Iris, Sylvie and Edie short for Edith.

Thanks for the feedback.

Does anyone have any suggestions of names I might like based on the ones above?

Thanks!
