Flora - really pretty, I couldn't get it passed DH because of the margarine though :(

Lily - it's ok, I just find it a bit overdone as it's been so popular for so long

Alma - I like it but I imagine it's a marmite name

Nell - pretty but only like as a NN for either Helen / Helena or Eleanore

Romy - not a fan

Frida - lovely name

Vinnie - dislike, but I dislike all 'ie' names for boys

Barney - like but love Barnaby

Remi - not a fan

Seamus - not a fan at all sorry.

Flora and Barney for me I think!

Flora - like it a lot
Lily - bit done, slightly tired?
Alma - not for me
Nell - bit of a nickname, would use a longer version
Romy - ok, don’t love it
Frida - like it but worry it’s the next Freya?

Vinnie - not for me
Barney - cute, would be concerned about how it works on an older man but coming around to it
Remi - worry it’s a bit feminine?
Seamus - love it but wouldn’t use it myself as no Irish ancestry

I like them all except Vinnie and Barney. The former seems a bit overused recently to me and the latter is a dinosaur.

Love Romi and Lily, Nell and Alma.

I like Flora Nell and Frida. Not sure about the boys names. Maybe Barney or Remi.

Flora or Frida - both lovely. Not keen on any of your boys’ names though I’m afraid.

I love Nell, I had an Aunty Nell, and she was a fabulous woman so im a bit biased on that one. Remi or Barney would be my pick out of the boys names.

Flora - Margarine, but Laura is OK.
Lily - Too closed in on itself.
Alma - Like
Nell - Ok as nickname for Elenora
Romy - Negative connotations because of Boris Johnson. Romona nn Romy?
Frida - Dislike

Vinnie - Hate
Barney - Ok
Remi - Used to like but have gone off it.
Seamus - Like the sound but it's too similar to "Shame us" for my liking.

In short, I would use Alma or Seamus.

Agreed ^

Flora is gorgeous, Frida lovely but heard it so much lately so be prepared it may be popular

Vinnie and Barney is a big no from me

Frida or Nell 😍

For boys I'm not keen on any except Barney but only as a nn for Barnaby.

Flora - nice
Lily - so very popular it’s just dull
Alma - really like Alma
Nell - an ugly sound to me. Prefer it as a nickname
Romy - another I prefer as a nickname
Frida - love Frida, great name

Vinnie - I like Vincent, but not Vinnie
Barney - quite sweet
Remi - I prefer the Remy spelling. It’s nice but gaining in popularity
Seamus - quite like Seamus, I’d be surprised if a Seamus wasn’t Irish (if you’re not)

Flora - becoming overused lately but alright
Lily - nice but again overused
Alma - Baldwin to me, but old reference
Nell - love it, but feels unfinished
Romy - adore this, but Johnson ruined it for me
Frida - old lady name that shouldn't come back (see also Vera, Mavis, etc)

Vinnie - nickname, Vincent would be okay
Barney - nickname again and borderline pretentious
Remi - love it
Seamus - not for me, but would put it second behind Remi.
