Boys/girls lists so far
LittleBigDreams · 25/02/2021 14:29
I'm looking for some thoughts and additions to our lists that we have put together so far:
Fleur, Clara, Drew
Jesse, Kit, Guy

We have similar taste OP. Fleur, Clara and Kit are all on our list. Other names we have on our list are;

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

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

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 .
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 ).
Lawrence / Laurence (Laurie for short)
Aurora (Rory for short)
Leonora (Leo for short)

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.

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).

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.

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

I like Clara, Fleur, Kit and Jesse. Not keen on Drew or Guy.
BeingATwatItsABingThing · 25/02/2021 18:27
Fleur - ok
Clara - my favourite from your girl list but I prefer Cara
Drew - ok
Jesse - love this name but DH vetoed it
Kit - meh
Guy - ok but don’t love it

Love the short unusual names 👏🏼
My boy’s list is:
Vinnie (Vin nickname)
Ari (my favourite name of all time but I know someone called it)
Happenchance · 09/03/2021 21:17
I only like Clara and Kit (as a nickname)
Girl: Thea, Zara, Fern, Lucia, Romy
Boy: Vaughn, Seth, Saul, Hector, Remy

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.
