I like Kerr and Austin best and would add in Keir and Gregor.

Not a particular fan of any of the girls as they aren't my style but all fine.

I'd add in Ailsa and Lorna.

JaggedlittlePhil Sun 28-Jun-20 12:45:39

Malachi

Cassidy

MaverickDanger Sun 28-Jun-20 12:49:54

Adore Lachlan, it’s our top boys name if this one turns out to be a boy. DH is holding out for Maverick and we also like Torin. I love Stellan but he isn’t keen.

None of the girls names are jumping out. What about:

Marnie
Billie
Noa
Remy

ButDoUAvocado Sun 28-Jun-20 12:50:42

Kerr just makes me think of wanker so I’d discount it for that reason but I love Keir.

Kester?

Prefer Malachi to Macauley

Love Indi, Austin and Peyton.

Other suggestions:
Chase
Flynn
Jago

Juno
Willow

autumngold6 Sun 28-Jun-20 12:54:13

I like Lachlan, Jude, Isla, Sienna

Thistlegirl4 Sun 28-Jun-20 13:10:02

Lachlan and Sienna would be my choices out of your lists.

DanniArthur Sun 28-Jun-20 13:15:04

Favourite boys names are Lachlan and Hudson. Favourite girls name is Isla but also love Hadley which was suggested in another post.

Ohshitx Sun 28-Jun-20 13:27:57

Hudson is a favourite, along with Kerr. I do also like Keir now it’s been mentioned. I thought I liked Adrian, but now that I see it written I can’t help but think of Rocky hmm

The girls names are tricky. I’m more settled that I’ll find a boys name I love, girls names aren’t jumping out 😫

daisypond Sun 28-Jun-20 13:33:50

Jude, Austin, Lachlan for boys. Jax is particularly bad.

Only Sienna from your girl names. Isla is nice but very popular. None of the others.

applesauce1 Sun 28-Jun-20 13:42:29

Boys

Kerr - meh. Feels like more of a sound than a name
Jax - awful
Lachlan - lovely
Macauley - a surname
Adrian - Adrian Mole
Jude - lovely
Austin - State Capital or Powers. Sounds American but it's not awful.
Hudson - a river or a dog's name

Girls

Wren - lovely
Darcie - a bit too twee
Indi - ok
Peyton - Manning. Very American
Sienna - yes
Isla - lovely but very popular
Harper - ok
Piper - reminds me of the Pied Piper. Again. Very American to my ears.

Can I suggest Robyn for a girl?

BumpLoading Sun 28-Jun-20 13:44:53

I love Wren, it was on my girls for a middle name list!
From the boys I like Austin and Hudsom the best. (Intrigued by Lachlan, I don't know how to pronounce it)

Spied Sun 28-Jun-20 13:46:15

Jude and Wren are my favs from list.

IncrediblySadToo Sun 28-Jun-20 13:51:33

Hi again, lovely to see you over here!

(Intrigued by Lachlan, I don't know how to pronounce it)

Scottish here so proper pronunciation is probably not something that most English folk can manage (or I can adequately describe!) you need to make a noise in the back of your throat that is difficult if you've not done it from childhood smile.

So English would be Lack lan, I wouldn't bat an eyelid at that.

sweetnosugar Sun 28-Jun-20 14:10:22

Love Lachlan!!

Pronunciation in link above. Woman sounds like she would stab you and take your chips!

Merename Sun 28-Jun-20 14:20:59

Like Lachlan and Jude, none of the rest, sorry. Especially loathe indi, or any name spelled like that.

whatausername Sun 28-Jun-20 14:51:01

I hate Lachlan because so many people fck up the pronunciation. Why use the name if you can't produce the sound? Arrrgh. And I don't care much for anglicising everything! rant over

I really like Jude and Austin from your list. Adrian is fine but it feels very 90s.

Sienna, Isla and Wren are all nice from your list. Piper makes me think of the sister in Charmed or the actress from Coyote Ugly so feels very 90s American to me. Not that there's anything wrong with the 90s, it's just too recent to be cool I think.
