Opinions on baby names, please?

These are just some of the ideas we've had. What do you think?


Nicholas (Nick) Alexander

Andrew Ryan

William (Billy) Kenneth

James Bradley

Rhett William

Adam Robert

Evan James

Henry Lee

Colby Luke

Daniel Edward

Thomas (Tom/Tommy/Thomas) Stephen

Samuel (Sam) Christopher

Jeremy James

Ian Michael

Jack Andrew

Wheeler Michael

Gunner Joseph


Madeleine Mackenzie

Juliet Eleanor

Lucy Rose

Ava Jane

Natalie Clare

Maura Katherine

Sophia Louise

Audrey Grace

Grace Elizabeth



EDIT: I know many of these are kind of old fashioned. I've got two main reasons for it:

A) Traditional names are more durable than trendy names. I want something that will suit my son/daughter whether they're 5, 15, or 50.

B) Some of these are family names. Robert, Stephen, Louise, and Mackenzie are all family names, for example. I would never give my daughter Louise as a first name, though : ).

    Boys: Andrew Ryan, Jack Andrew, or Adam Robert

    Girls: Sophia Louise, Natalie Clare, or Audrey Grace

    Good luck :)

  • Wow! Loads of really great names there, here are my favourites...

    - BOYS: Alexander, Ryan, James, Bradley, Evan, Luke, Daniel, Jack, Michael, Joseph.

    - GIRLS: Madeleine, Lucy, Rose, Ava, Natalie, Sophia, Grace, Elizabeth.

    Here are some names I think you might like, based on your choices...

    - Owen, Hadley, Nathan, Jake, Logan & Finley.

    - Caitlin, Mckenna, Lily, Camryn, Olivia & Ruby.

    * Really hope I helped :) good luck!

    - EDIT: And to Melanie G - what's wrong with 'Eleanor'? That's MY name and people often compliment me on it...

    - EDIT(2): I wasn't offended, just wondered what you thought was SO wrong with the name... you seem really repulsed by it, which I thought was odd and perhaps a bit unnecessary... your answer came across as if naming a child 'Eleanor' is the worst offence a mother could make - as if it was a weird, unsual name - "...are you REALLY thinking of naming your child Prune?!?!"

    Fair enough if you don't like a name, but don't you think your reaction was slightly over-the-top? Like I said, just... odd.

    I like your boy names because they are masculine, not overused or just plain silly and actually spelled correctly.

    Not wild about Wheeler or Gunner though.

    The girl names are okay. I hate grandma names and the majority of them sound like what my mimi's neighbors were named. In fact, my grandmother's name was Lucy... and are you REALLY thinking of naming your baby Eleanor?!?!? But they aren't made up or spelled all weird and they are actually girl names.

    I think Madeleine Mackenzie is way too much name for anyone though.

    Edit: To Pretty Green Eyes: Good for you that your name is Eleanor and you like it. I believe the OP asked for opinions on the names SHE listed. I gave my opinion. Sorry if you don't like it, and honestly, I don't even understand why you're offended. I don't even know you, but I do know that I don't like the name Eleanor and never will. It makes me think of an old woman. BTW - I don't really care either if you like my name cuz I do.

  • I don't care for Madeleine Mackenzie,Juliet Eleanor,Colby Luke, sorry the rest I like
