My favourites from your lists and Lucy and Samuel smile

Any of your boys. I love Joseph, but mainly because of Joe. I think with those names you need to think about the shortenings and whether you like them.

I like Lucy, Esme, and Thea.

Esme Suzanne is lovely.

Joseph Sebastian sounds nice too.

I like all of your boys names. Sebastian is my favourite.
I like Eleanor best from your girls names. I also like Esme, and Lucy is fine. Not so keen on Elena or Thea.

I like Esme Susanne and Joseph best

Thea and Esme - classic but not common. Unusual enough to not be the 4th one in the class.
Lucy - too common.
Eleanor - old ladies name.

Joseph all the way.
All the Samuels I've known have been wet and drippy "Saaaaam". Plus makes me think of fat little Sam Weller in the Pickwick Papers.
Sebastian is very fey. All a bit too Brideshead Revisited.

Eleanor is lovely. 2nd Lucy, but the others are OK.
Your boy's names are all nice.

NuffSaidSam Sun 15-Jan-17 02:08:10

I like Lucy or Eleanor best.

I like all the boys names, but would go with Sebastian because the other two are very popular.

Lucy and Samuel would be my choices from your lists

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sun 15-Jan-17 09:40:05

Esme Susanne and Joseph James.

NavyandWhite Sun 15-Jan-17 09:46:27

Eleanor and Joseph. Love them both.

Thank you all do your suggestions, very much appreciated smile

Rinmybell Sun 15-Jan-17 18:44:12

Thea is gorgeous. I like Samuel but detest Sam hmm

Jooni Sun 15-Jan-17 21:37:38

Esme and Eleanor are my favourites. Thea Susanne is also very nice.

I like all your boys' names. Samuel and Joseph are a bit unexciting to me though so I say Sebastian Joseph.

AndNoneForGretchenWieners Sun 15-Jan-17 21:41:49

Lucy or Eleanor.

Joseph.

TheNewMrsGerardButler Sun 15-Jan-17 21:59:17

Great lists, like them all.

Lucy is so lovely, Thea is beautiful and I've got a naming crush on Elena lately.

Samuel is so classic and handsome, suits all ages.
