Eleanor, purely because I love the nickname Nell.

Not really keen on any of the boys names but would choose Arthur at a push.

Helena as it's the least common
James because I really like it

Sophia - because I know a lovely one (although spelt Sofia).
Alexander - again because I know a lovely one.

Eleanor and Arthur

All safe name choices

I like Isabella the best for girls, followed by Helena (prefer Helen-uh pronunication)

and James for a boy

❤️ Helena is timeless and classy.
William (Will), or James.

Thanks everyone so far for your positive opinions, would it be silly to have two names in a sibset beginning with the same letter (E)?

Alice or Helena both lovely for a girl
I really like Eleanor too but risk of ending up being one of many Ella/Ellies

Boys names are all safe classic names, James is my favourite of the bunch

Eleanor but prefer the spelling Elinor with NN Elsie.

None of the boys names though as they are more than safe ! Boring and commonly used now!

The girls' names are all beautiful, I wouldn't know which to pick. Slightly prefer Sophie over Sophia.

I don't like Arthur much or Henry (both seem a bit stodgy), but the other boys names are all fine. I love James, but it is just so common now (or maybe not in the last few years?). I would probably pick Alexander or maybe James.

Love them all, especially Eleanor and James.
