I love Fleur and Jesse from your lists

Love Fleur and Jesse 😊

Jesse is really taking off, I'm hearing it everywhere! I'm not sure it's a name many men would choose to be called and I think it will date.

I don't like Guy at all.
I really like Kit but it is a bit unfinished and depends on your accent. If you are in an area that says t's at the end of words then it sounds lovely. I personally would drop the t and it sounds a bit too short.
Out of your girls names, Clara is the nicest, don't mind Fleur, really don't like Drew.

Hello and congratulations

Love all your boy choices - probably Guy, Jesse and Kit in that order, though Kit only as a nn for Christopher/Kester.

Other thoughts - Rory, Blaise, Beau, Art as nn for Arthur, Milo, Jethro, Nat/e as nn for Nathaniel, Jerome

For girls I also love Clara
Don’t like Fleur - sounds like Bluuurgh - only works in a French accent I think
Drew I just think is a boys name and not a very distinguished one at that

Other thoughts - Cassia, Lois, Jasmine, Ines, Robin, Cleo, Frances, Lara, Serena, Seren, Ffion, Linos

Fleur and Clara are lovely, Drew is a different style of name, not to my taste for boy or girl. Your boys names are all OK, I would probably choose Kit.

Clara and Kit (if short for Christopher) are lovely. I also quite like Guy.

Similar names imo - Ada, Freda, Lara, Laura, Flora, Tess, May, Gwen, Hugh, Henry (Hal), Caleb or Charles (Cal), James (Jem), Alexander (Xan/Lex), Edward (Ned/Ted).

I consider Drew to be a boys' name, but Fleur and Clara are fine.

I like Kit as a diminutive of Christopher.

Jesse and Guy are quite nice, but not my style.

BallsToYouSue Thu 25-Feb-21 15:08:08

I love Clara and Jesse!

I dislike Drew for boys and girls. It sounds... droopy! I also knew one who people called Drew the Poo until he was about 25. So witty hmm.

Guy and Kit are nice, but I prefer Kit short for something; Christopher, Christian, Kester maybe.

I don't like Fleur in British accents (sorry). So that may depend upon where you live.

I love the suggestion of Gus, short for something. Angus, Magnus or Fergus. (My DS has one of these names, so please don't say they're all hideous grin).

Suggestions:

Caspar
Benedict
John
Lawrence / Laurence (Laurie for short)
Sebastian

Florence
Beatrice
Iris
Francesca
Riley
Blake
Elliott
Aurora (Rory for short)
Leonora (Leo for short)

IggyAce Thu 25-Feb-21 14:47:19

I like both your lists. I’d probably pick Clara or Kit.
Suggestions:
Girls: Diana, Blake, James
Boys: Nathaniel (Nate), Archer, Ivo

emmathedilemma Thu 25-Feb-21 14:40:48

I really like Fleur and Clara. Less so Drew for a girl as it's more commonly used for boys in Scotland.
Flora, Freya, Cora, Carys, Zoe, Nina,
Kit is ok and Guy isn't too bad but I really don't like Jesse.
Edward (Ted), Angus (Gus), Max, Cole, Asa, Seth, Rhys

Champy87 Thu 25-Feb-21 14:37:18
