In order: Charlie (nn for Charles), Henry, Jonah
Not keen on the OT names

Girls: Anna or Sophie. Isabelle/Isabel/Isabella too popular, Freya overused and Elodie meh and just another Ellie

Alternatives: Annie, Kate

I like Henry. I prefer Jonas to Jonah.

I like Anna and Freya. I prefer Isabel to Isobel because I think Isa (pronounced Ee-sah) is the best nn for Isabel.

Other suggestions:
Joel
Luke
Jonas

Marianne
Josephine nn Josie

Jonah or Anna - the rest are also nice but very overused (not so much Elodie, but she’ll end up one of a million Ellies)

Stella, Verity, Felicity, Laurence, Patrick might be others

On your girls list I like Sophie or a sort of mix between Anna and Elodie...Alannah or Ardella

Jonah and Anna the best. Anna is a great name.

How about Elias, or Conrad?

Love Jonah and it's a bit more unusual and special than the others although Henry is gorgeous classic. My son has 2 Charlie's and 2 Henry's in his year group (year 1) if popularity matters to you.

Love all your girls' names but favourite is probably Anna.

Jonah and Anna. They're the least popular out of the names you've listed and actually the nicest too, I think.

I love all your names!
Charlie would be my favourite from your boys list.

I have a Hannah who almost an Anna.
I also love Annabelle and Rosanna.

I prefer Isabella but that's just my personal preference. I seem to know more Isobel/ Isabelles and not so many Isabellas.

Sophie has always been one of my favourites, but recently I'm more drawn to Sophia.

I also love Elodie and Freya.
