We are unsure is we are having a boy or girl ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’–
We can't decide on names. These are what we like so far ;)

They're all nice, shez! Out of your girls, I like Ada. I know a few wee Evelyns, Avas, Phoebes and Olivias but no Adas. Everly I'm not sure about because it just makes me think of the Everly Brothers (great as they may be).

Jacob is my favourite of your boys.

My husband loves ada as it was his nans name ;)

GoldPlatedBacon Wed 02-Mar-16 15:46:17

I like Phoebe and Zachary. Phoebe Ada or Ada Phoebe would be nice

Some great names, apart from Everley (not heard of this before).

Evelyn - nice but Eve/Evie/Eva/Ava all very popular
Ava - like, but see above
Ada - quite like, a bit quirky
Everly - don't like, surname and reminds me of the Everly brothers so doesn't sound like a girls' name to me
Phoebe - like
Olivia - like

Noah - faddy
Jacob - like, good classic name
Zachary - like
Oscar - not keen
Finn - not keen

Evelyn. Very harsh. I don't understand the hype over this name.
Ava. Nice name.
Everly. Brothers
Ada. Frumpy.
Phoebe. No.
Olivia. Yes.

Only like Noah out of your boys names

Ada is my favourite from your girls list.

All the rest including the boys list are very safe and overly popular - depends if that bothers you or not.

Agree with others that the first thought on hearing Everly is the Brothers! grin

DontKillMyVibe Wed 02-Mar-16 17:42:18

Here's my girls list if you want some more ideas though I'm not sure any would be to your taste

For boys I liked Seth, Leo, Edison, Torin and Albyn (Alby for short)

For girls I like Ava best but its bit too popular for my liking so would have choose Ava.

Boys I like Zackary best

Sophronia Wed 02-Mar-16 20:28:29

Ada and Jacob

I love Ada!

Evelyn is a lovely name but there are four of them at playgroup and it's a small village!

Jacob is my favourite of the boy names.

Oscar is so popular and I struggle to understand why, I see it as more of a pet's name. Im one to talk though, I've given my daughter a parrot's name!! (Not intentionally, just never thought of it like that until it was pointed out to me! Oops! Haha!)

Ava and Ada, really beautiful names for me.
Zachary and Noah for boys name. love them smile

Ludways Thu 03-Mar-16 12:35:01

Ada really stands out for me, for a girl but I find your boys names all of a muchness, probably Jacob is best but I know loads.

Although my ds has a traditionally very normal name. It isn't very popular but it's been in the top 100 names since about the 15th century, lol. He suits it and I still love it.

Gummibearchen Thu 03-Mar-16 13:56:14

I agree - Ada stands out and is lovely and underused. Your boys names are all very widely used and a little dull imo.

When I saw Ada written I misread it as Asdagrin Reread the sentence to see the correct name & glad I did as wouldn't had known what to say about Asda as a name!

Ada is ok. I prefer Eva/Ava & do not care how popular the name is. Jacob is my fave out of your boy's names

Seekingmiracles Thu 03-Mar-16 18:52:33

Generally like all your names.
LOVE Everly! It's so pretty, it's on my girls list.
Only girls name I don't like is Evelyn

Boys - they're all ok. Personal favourite are Finn and Zachary (although I prefer and would use Zach)
