Thoughts / comments . . .
Caroline Ruby - This name is absolutely gorgeous. Caroline is so nice. It's a royal name with a well-earned patina. I honestly cannot find fault with such a lovely name as this. I prefer this much more than the less formal and slightly trashy Carolyn, which seems all wrong to me. Caroline, on the other hand, is perfect. Ruby compliments it nicely.
Vivian Grace - Though I do prefer the French spelling Vivienne, I think Vivian is quite nice. It was traditionally a boys name, believe it or not. But it's one of the only names I prefer on girls that was traditionally masculine. Though still occasionally used for boys in Britain, totally female here in Canada. You never hear it on boys, which causes it to sound and be distinctly feminine. I would consider Grace as a filler, but this combination is beautiful.
Katherine Sophia - Katherine is such a gorgeous spelling. I think I might even favour it over the traditional spelling of Catherine . . . shh, don't tell anyone! Sophia sounds wonderful with it - the flow is this name is absolutely superb.
Ava Charlotte - Ava is such a pretty name. The only downfall of it is how popular it is. It's a Glamour girl name via Hollywood beauty Ava Gardner and as given big popularity boost -- it's in the Top Five and sure to climb even higher -- when dozens of high-profile stars such as Reese Witherspoon and Hugh Jackman chose it for their daughters. Attractive but epidemically popular. Charlotte is gorgeous and a favourite of mine.
Gemma Rose - I've never been a large fan of the name Gemma, not sure why because I feel like I should love it considering it would be classified under traditional girls names, but it is most certainly nicer than the spelling Jemma which takes away from the niceness and femininity of the name. Rose is filler, but flows wonderfully with Gemma as the first name.
Henry Joshua - I'm absolutely in love with this combination. I might even steal it from you, I love it so much! The name is fantastic and both names balance each other out fantastically. Henry and Joshua are handsome classics that you can't go wrong with.
Benjamin Riley - Very nice combination, and I'm glad to see Riley being used on the proper gender. It's horrid on girls. I do prefer the traditional spelling of Reilly, however. Just seems a lot nicer / masculine in my opinion. This pairing is wonderful overall and I really like the flow it possesses.
Landon Zachary - Landon is one of my guilty pleasure names. I wouldn't be caught dead using this name because of how modern it is, but I can't help but love it. It is a fast-rising surname name: it's in the Top Fifty. Zachary sounds great paired with Landon. My husband and I were considering the name Zachary for number two - I love the name.
Jackson Noah - I like Jackson a lot but still favour the name Jack over it. I do have to give you credit for spelling Jackson correctly however, I've been seeing a lot of Jaxons and Jaxsons lately. Those spellings aren't nearly as accepted / handsome as Jackson. Noah is nice. Though I like each name separately, I can't say I'm a fan of them in the same pairing. The n's run into each other with causes the overall combination to clash - it sounds like "Jacksonoah".
Aiden Nicholas - I've never liked the name Aiden. It's just never appealed to me, especially spelled any other way than its original way - Aidan. I'd definitely prefer that out of all of them, though I'd never consider / use the name because of how incredibly popular it is. Nicholas is nice as the middle name, though. I like that a lot.
Happy Turkey Day.
