    Teagan - I think it's such a great name! Not many people have it, and not many people are naming their babies this! Love the originality, yet not too crazy!

    Alexis - my daughter's middle name, Daisy Alexis

    Rainey - I had a friend in High School named Rainey, she was 'the most popular girl in school' and gorgeous. Her full name was Lorraine. Anyway, this name brings back great memories hanging out with her. Love it!

    Adam - such a strong name, I don't think this name will ever go out of style! Ages well and yet is great for a little baby boy as well!

    Nicholas - same as Adam, but reminds me more of a little boy than Adam does!

    Logan - funny that Rainey and Logan are both at the end of your lists...Rainey's boyfriend's name was Logan. I don't like this name for any of my children, but love it because Logan, as well as Rainey, was just oh so cool way back when.

    Madelynn 8/10

    What's wrong with the good old spelling Madeline?

    Lindsey 6/10

    Not my style but it's a nice name

    Tatelyn 5/10

    Different but not too wierd; however it sounds a lot like Kaitlyn so it might get confused.

    Abigail 8/10

    Lovely name - my best friend's name, she always goes by Abby though

    Teagan 5/10

    As for Lindsey

    Lauren 6/10

    As for Lindsey and Teagan though I like this a little better

    Hanna 7/10

    Hannah would be better. I prefer the trad. spelling but it's a nice name.

    Lillie 7/10

    If it was Lily it would be a 9 or 10. It's still pretty as it is though.

    Alexis 8/10

    I like this name, like Alex but prettier and more interesting.

    No. Sounds like you forgot the M off Madison and I hate Madison anyway.

    Alyssa 7/10

    A bit old-fashioned but a good enough name.

    Not my style but i suppose it's quite good.

    As for Paul.

    Nicholas 6/10

    Alyssa and Alecia are not pronounced the same, they are two separate names. Alyssa rhymes with Melissa, there is no sh sound in these names. I'm sure your friend has had to correct people a lot on her name because of how it's misspelled. Save your child the trouble and use a spelling that is correct.

    Girls- Lauren, Lillie, Abigail

    Ellis is a boys name, NOT unisex

    Boys- Adam, Blake, Nicholas

    Not a fan of funky spellings so I don't like Madelynn, Kanan, Lillie, or Alyssa... Madelynn, Lillie and Kanan, at least phoenetically, are correct but Alyssa is not. If you want it pronounced Alicia people are going to have tremendous problems with this spelling (because you're wrong). But with that pet-peeve aside my favorites are Luke, Logan, Kanan, and Addison. Layton I hate because I had a boss with this last name and he was a prick.

    All are good names. When I look for names, think of ones that everyone will pronounce correctly. For example, when there is roll in school, can the teacher pronounce it right, it's a pain to have to correct, etc. Also, you don't want it to be too bizarre so that others are like WTF were they going for.

    For the Girls, I like:

    Madelynn

    Lindsey

    Hanna

    Lillie

    I'd avoid the Alyssa one, that's going to be a mess to correct people. If you have to give us a hint on here, I wouldn't do it.

    Boys I like:

    Jacob

    Luke

    Colton

    Paul

    Nicholas(Nick)

    I tried to give no personal bias of people I already know with those names:)

    Hope it helps

    When I see the spelling as Ryle, I would pronounce it like I would Lyle instead of Rylee..why not Riley, Ryleigh, Rilley?

    Also, Alyssa should be Alysha if you want it pronounced that way too.

    Sorry...but changing the spelling on those two names completely changes the name.

    Plus, Rowdy for a boy is just asking for him to be a partier or to be teased mercilessly.

    Otherwise, I really like your names... my faves

    Rainey

    Ellis

    Teagan

    Lauren

    Colton

    Logan

    Layton

    Luke

    Blake

    Connor

    I like:

    Layton

    Luke

    Blake

    Colton - Or just Cole.

    Kainan - Spelled any other way it's confusing.

    Paul - I like Saul too.

    Logan - For a boy or girl.

    Lindsay - Spelled Lindsay not Lindsey

    Abigail - Although I prefer just Abbey, or Gail.

    Alicia - Alyssa should NOT be pronounced uh-LEESH-uh. It just doesn't make any sense. I do like the name Alicia though, or Lissa.

    Ellis - But for a boy.
