I love Rowan Fraser from both your lists but would ask if you had considered using Fraser as a first name as it's just lovely.

Also Rory Alexander and Nico Hunter.

Aoifee Catherine is a gorgeous name but I also love Mirren Catherine and Nova Catherine.

There's no names that I actively dislike on your list. Some I find a bit plain but are still perfectly nice names and some I love.

They are great lists. Good Luck.

Nova Catherine

Aoife Catherine or Merryn Rose for a girl; Rowan Fraser for a boy.

These aren't exactly the names I'd personally choose, but based on the most overlap between you and your partner, and on the combinations of names that crop up most between you, I'd go for these. And they're all lovely names.

Luna and Rowan

The only one I really don't like is Ayra, but too game of thrones for me.

DO NOT use Isaac Hunter. Sounds like you are saying cunt if you say it fast and run the names together.

Liz09 Tue 05-Jul-16 22:25:17

swancourt Tue 05-Jul-16 23:16:05

MadameJosephine Tue 05-Jul-16 23:30:05

Babes? Stupid phone - favourite names

AGBforever Wed 06-Jul-16 03:04:31

Lots of great names here, I really love both Merida and Merryn. Seems like you both love similar names so consider a whiteboard of favourites which you get to look at everyday till you find the names/combination that you love. (We were nearly at our legal limit of 6 weeks before we named dd2)

CourtJester Wed 06-Jul-16 11:16:46

Just my initial thoughts...

Mirren Rose - Very Old fashioned.
Daniel Luke - Lovely, traditional names.
Arya Catherine - Never heard of Arya, sounds made up (is it something GoTs? Never seen it).
Rory Luke - Lovely, one of my favourites, traditional without being boring.
Lyra Catherine - Lovely, bit unusual combined with traditional, one of my favourites.
Isaac Fraser - Like Isaac, Fraser reminds me of a dog.
Oliver Luke - Very nice, traditional, and love the nn Olly.
Merida Catherine - I like it, although reminds me of the Disney Princess if that's what you're going for.
Luke Fraser - Love Luke, Fraser is a dog.
Linnet Catherine - Never heard of Linnet, but i would have presumed it was a male name, so not keen.
Deliah Rose - Nice, but possibly a bit too flowery?
Merryn Catherine - Old fashioned
Aoiffe Rose - Not keen, just don't like the spelling (and i can never pronounce it)
Jacob Fraser - Jacob is okay, Fraser is a dog.
Christopher Luke - Love it, Christopher doesn't seem to be used much now, but its lovely
Esme Rose - Just okay, bit meh.
Norah Catherine - Qiute old fashioned.
Dawson Fraser - Too American (It's a surname!)
Luna Abigail - Love! Both names are lovely, and slightly unusual without being werid.
Rowan Catherine - I don't like Rowan, i don't think it works well for male or female.
Rowan Fraser - Don't like Rowan, doesn't sound right.

My list
: Daniel Fraser (b) - Daniel nice, Fraser not.
Rory Alexander (b) - Lovely, traditional but slightly unusual
Isaac Hunter (b) - Do not like Hunter, too American (It's a surname!)
Oliver James (b) - Lovely, and i love Olly as a nn
Merida Elisa (g) - Nice, but i prefer Elise or Eliza, i don't really know how to pronounce Elisa.
Luke Alexander (b) - Nice, traditional, lovely.
Seraphina Naomi (g) - Nice, and i like Sera for a nn.
Aoiffe Catherine (g) - Do not like Aoiffe, spelling or pronounciation.
Mirriam Elisa (g) - Too old fashioned.
Christopher (no middle) (b) - Christopher is lovely and underused!
Esme Naomi (g) - Okay, nothing special
Nova Catherine (g) - Nova is okay, a bit unusual compared to your other choices
Nico Hunter (b) - Prefer Nicholas over Nico. Hunter is a surname
Lydia Naomi (g) - Don't like Lydia, too harsh sounding.
Luna Naomi (g) - Love Luna, Naomi is okay
Rowan Fraser (b) - Don't like Rowan for boy or girl
