Early thoughts on names

Only 14 weeks and starting out with names ideas. DH didn't like half my suggestions to begin with!! Seems we have varying taste and will meet in the middle somewhere. I would say we both have fairly conservative taste in names though.

Anna, Charlotte, Erin, Felicity, Lydia, Matilda, Megan, Rachel
Arthur, Daniel, Edward, Jacob, James, Samuel, Thomas, Toby

This is what I've come up with so far, may not use the A ones as my name begins with A. Charlotte more likely to be middle name than first. If we have a boy, middle name WILL be Denis ( both our dads' name, don't like the name per se but the only thing we've agreed on so far!)

Any other similar suggestions?

Florence was my granny's name but I've never liked it! Clara too similar to my sister's name.
I like Benjamin but our surname begins with B so not sure if it would work.
DH vetoed Phoebe!
We know an Alexander and a Matthew so those are out.
Not so keen on Quentin, Theodore or Robert I'm afraid; I do like the other suggestions.

I love Anna and Lydia.
Charlotte and Felicity are also really pretty, but Charlotte is very popular...

What about Louisa, Miranda, Flora, Liliana, Claire/Clare, Beatrice, Carlotta, Thomasina, Josephine or Claudia?

Thomas is definitely my favourite.

But I also like Arthur and Daniel. What about Zachariah, Nathaniel, Jasper or Caspar?

I suggest Eleanor and Eloise to add to your girl list. Charlotte and Matilda are my favourites of your list.
I love Edward but wouldnt use it in front of Denis. Same for Thomas. I like all your boy list - Toby is my favourite.
How about Dominic or Albert?

Some great suggestions, thanks.
Will add Joseph, Nicholas, Isobel and Eleanor to the list.
I like the name Rory but I come from the same town as the famous golfer, people will assume I'm a fan (I'm really not!)

I think Thomas is currently my front-runner for a boys name but do worry it'd sound funny with Denis and our surname that also ends in S.

Surprised no one has mentioned

Matilda or Henry/Harrysmile
