Can you rate my list please, what would you choose?


Wouldn’t want to shorten any of them but understand this may be inevitable when they reach school age.

Eva and Samuel.

Matilda- I personally adore this name.

Alexander- people will defiantly call him Alex though, which I'm not as keen on.

I do like Samuel and also like Sam/Sammy for a NN.

I don’t like the girls names.

I like all the boys! But I think you’ll have trouble not shortening any of them.

Eliza and Joseph - though they are all v popular.

Eliza and Alexander

Matilda for a girls name. I also like Evelyn but think it gets mixed in with the millions of Eve/Evies. Don't really like Eliza.

I like all your boys names, probably Benjamin most followed by Alexander.
I like Benji as a nn for Benjamin.

Matilda for a girl
Alexander for a boy

Eliza and Alexander (but I’d encourage Xander as a nickname rather than Alex)

Eliza and Samuel although they are all nice names smile

Disfordarkchocolate Sun 06-Jan-19 12:05:08

Evelyn and Joseph, but to be honest I like them all.

Carolcool Sun 06-Jan-19 12:05:37

They are all lovely but super popular. Personally I avoided the VERY popular names but there's no reason to really.

Love Matilda and Benjamin. All your boys names are in danger of being shortened though!!

I had a lot of the names on my lists too. I loved alaxander for a boy. But I'm expecting a little girl. Evelyn is my top name however my youngest middle name is evelyn (she was definitely going to be my last) my ex hated the name so wasn't allowed it as a first name. I would love to use it this time but not sure if it would be too weird so I'm contemplating evie or Freya now

Eliza and Alexander for me. (I like Lex, Alec and Xander for short forms rather than Alex.) Also love Matilda.

Didyeeaye Sun 06-Jan-19 12:12:13

My favourites are Matilda and Benjamin.

Chocolateandchillies Sun 06-Jan-19 13:05:44

To those saying they are very popular, they all rank outside the top 20 so can’t imagine there being too much of an issue. I think I’m swaying towards Eliza or Evelyn and Benjamin but I keep changing my mind.

Eliza and Alexander

daisypond Sun 06-Jan-19 13:13:04

Eliza and Alexander. But l like all the names you've suggested except Eva (too bland).

Creatureofthenight Sun 06-Jan-19 13:13:13

Matilda and Samuel

WhatASmashingBlouse Sun 06-Jan-19 13:31:16

Evelyn or Matilda

Samuel or Alexander

Tobykins Sun 06-Jan-19 13:37:14


All your girls names are nice, I'd probably pick Eliza if it were me.

tammytoby Sun 06-Jan-19 13:56:19

They are all quite fashionable these days, and I prefer more underused classics. The only one I like is Eliza.

anatol Sun 06-Jan-19 13:56:21

Eva and Alexander

MikeUniformMike Sun 06-Jan-19 14:36:14

Eva - far too popular if you add it to all the Eves, Avas, etc. Makes me think of Eva Braun.
Eliza - nice
Evelyn - I don't like it, I like Eve
Matilda - nice but way too popular

I like all the boys names
