What are your favorite names for boys & girls?

I'm asking this here because I generally prefer more "traditional" names, and the pregnancy & baby sections have a lot of people who prefer trendy names. I also like old-fashioned names that are coming back into style again....such as Madeline, for example.Thanks!

Update:

I'm not pregnant, I'm just curious (and excited about future motherhood, I suppose). Thanks though!

    My favorite boys name is Jacob - also the most popular boys name - a sign that the old names are coming back. We have 3 Jacob’s in our family - they go by the name Jake.

    I like:

    Jacob John = JJ - Jake - Johnny

    James = Jim - Jimmy

    Anthony = Tony

    Matthew = Matt

    Christopher = Cris - CC

    Bradley = Brad

    Daniel = Dan - Danny

    Jonathan = John - Johnny - JJ

    My favorite girls name is Shaelee.

    Emma

    Elizabeth = Lizzy - Liz

    Katherine = Kate

    Angela = Angie - Angel

    Julia = Julie

    Olivia = Livvy

    Jennifer = Jenny

    Megan = Meggie - Meg

    Kaitlin = Kate

    Carol Anne

    Karalee = Kara

    Sybil

    Suzanne

    Amanda = Mandy

    These are some I like.

    It would be nice to get back to tradition. I can't pronounce a lot of the names parents are choosing now. And those weired names the actresses are using is also different. Some may sound okay but when someone mispronounce it, the parent get mad. If I were to do it again I would choose biblical names, not hard at all.
