I don't like Matilda, Tegan (sounds like a car to me, sorry), Lyndon, Lucas much - all others fine.

Felicity is my favourite and Gabriel for a boy.

PrincessToadstool Fri 18-Sep-09 15:46:46

Like Felicity, Matilda, Samuel, Gabriel. The rest are a bit... not to my taste

Binkster Fri 18-Sep-09 15:47:56

I love Matilda and also quite like Stephanie. I think that Lynette sounds a bit dated- a but like Janet, Karen, Eileen- that kind of name.

Gabriel is a fab name and I think the rest of your boys names are really nice too. Samuel is quite ordinary, wheras the others are a bit more unusual.

Stephanie - very dated
Felicity - a bit prim and dull
Lynette - terrible
Matilda - lovely
Tegan - awful Home and Away madeup name

Samuel - Nice
Gabriel - love this
Logan - see Tegan
Lucas - Like this one
Lyndon - don't like. Makes me think of the president or the Kubrick film and not of a name for a child.

SamMitchell Fri 18-Sep-09 15:53:50

Stephanie - quite retro, but I like it
Felicity - bit twee
Lynette - dreadful, sounds like a Neighbours character
Matilda - OK, quite common these days
Tegan - hideous beyond belief


Samuel - classic, nice
Gabriel - gaining popularity; like it
Logan - 'Lynette's' son in neighbours? NO
Lucas - not keen
Lyndon - Lynette's husband? NO

BunnyLebowski Fri 18-Sep-09 15:57:22

Tegan - not keen


Samuel You cant' go wrong with Sam/Samuel
Gabriel - lovely, but I wouldn't use it myself.
Logan - I love it
Lucas - lovely, but a bit ruined by East Enders, IMO

Lyndon - not so keen

Scorps Fri 18-Sep-09 15:59:11

Stephanie - The BEST name ever wink (Though DH likes totell me 'you have a fanny in your name ha ha hmm)
Felicity - too frilly for me
Lynette - The BEST middle name ever wink

I only dislike Lyndon from Boys list

Cortina Fri 18-Sep-09 16:00:13

Stephanie - ok, bit dull somehow
Felicity - like, unusual but not bonkers
Lynette - dim 1970s check out assistant
Matilda - ok, but so many Tillys out there (Tilly poss chav)?
Tegan - Dr Who character from 70s, made up name orginating in some dull Aussie suburb

Samuel - nice, not over used
Gabriel - Heroes
Logan - Logan's Run, a bit chav
Lucas - great but over-used
Lyndon - don't like

thedollshouse Fri 18-Sep-09 16:00:34

Stephanie - Not my cup of tea but ok
Felicity - classic, very nice
Lynette - Awful reminds me of a very rough woman I once knew
Matilda - On my list but is becoming very popular
Tegan - Don't like at all, the sort of name I would have chosen when I was 14.

Samuel - Inoffensive but a little boring
Gabriel - Lovely
Logan - naughty boy name
Lucas - Nice
Lyndon - Logan's partner in crime

Scorps Fri 18-Sep-09 16:00:56

Teagan/Tegan is celtic. Lots round here.

crumpette Fri 18-Sep-09 16:01:22

Stephanie- I think this name is pretty, it's not dated in a way that is saturated and thus associated with a generation, I think it would work equally well on a toddler, 20 year old, 50 year old
Felicity- bit saccharine
Lynette= NO
Matilda- Nice, I like a lot but becoming very popular atm
Tegan- NO would be my frank opinion


Samuel- Lovely classic
Logan- a berry? NO
Lucas- I like this a lot but think it is pretty popular right now and may sound very dated in 10 years time
Lyndon- No no no no no please no

ScummyMummy Fri 18-Sep-09 16:04:10

I like Stephanie, Felicity, Matilda, Samuel and Gabriel.

Tortington Fri 18-Sep-09 16:04:40

yes indeed Frank is a brill name

but completely nothing to do with this thread. <<sups coffee

Fluffypoms Fri 18-Sep-09 16:09:14

Boy; Gabriel

Girl; Tegan

katnkittens Fri 18-Sep-09 16:25:42


Stephanie - I really like this, she will get Steph which is pretty too.

Felicity - nice, I like Flick for a nn

Lynette - YUK desperate housewives/old aunt name

Matilda-LOVE LOVE LOVE, the one I know gets Tilly

Tegan - meh, not really


Samuel - Quite nice but a bit meh
Gabriel - Lovely
Logan- indifferent
Lucas - nice
Lyndon - Don't like it, a bit try hard American sounding

So I'd probably choose Gabriel and Matilda as my favourites

Ineedsomesleep Fri 18-Sep-09 17:49:19

Don't like Stephanie, Felicity, or Lynette sorry.

Tegan and Matilda are getting more popular, especially Tegan. The local paper was full of Tegan's when it was running its beautiful babies competition.


Like Samuel and Gabriel but I do like classical names for a boy. Logan and Lyndon I just don't like. and Lucas is very popular too.

mathanxiety Fri 18-Sep-09 18:27:32

Matilda, Stephanie, Samuel and Gabriel my favs. Lucas and Felicity -- ok but not great. Lynette, Lyndon, Tegan and Logan very bad, imo.

pasturesnew Fri 18-Sep-09 18:33:39

Stephanie - not terribly keen because of the "fanny" nn possibility
Felicity - nice
Lynette - OK
Matilda - nice
Tegan - not keen

Samuel - lovely
Gabriel - OK
Logan - nice
Lucas - lovely
Lyndon - OK

pinkthechaffinch Fri 18-Sep-09 18:37:36

Lyndon is the name of my 7 year old DS. I've never met another!

I hope you choose this name if you have a ds, the world needs more lovely Lyndons! smile

pinkthechaffinch Fri 18-Sep-09 18:38:55

morethanyoubargainfor Fri 18-Sep-09 18:42:11
