    Lilja (lil-ya) - The 'Lil' part is soft and feminine, but the 'ja' on the end kind of sounds harsh ad out of place.

    Gwendolyn - Names like Gwendolyn, Guinevere etc have always sounded a little medieval and try-hard. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for old fashioned name, but these ones have never taken my fancy.

    Estella - This one's very pretty. Stella is getting popular right now, but Estella is still unique. Essie is a cute nickname.

    Dara - This doesn't appeal to me when I say it out loud. It sounds like "Derrr!" or somebody with a cold saying Tara. I do like Dana or Dora though.

    Annona -after two people who mean a lot to me; their names are Annie and Anna - I don't really like this one, it sounds too made up. Why not just go with Anne to honour these two people?

    Lowri (loh-ri/low-ri) - The spelling of this looks rather unattractive, and it doesn't sound all that nice when said aloud. Laurie (Lorrie) is a similar alternative.

    Tessa - Love this name.

    Mary - A well used classic, but I still think it's gorgeous.

    Helena - Pronounced Hel-en-uh or Hel-ay-nuh? I like the second way better, but love either way. One of my favourite names.

    Luna - Love this name too. But you'd have to contend with everyone thinking it was a Harry Potter reference.

    Lora - Is this pronounced like Laura? If so, I love it.

    Lucille - LOVE Lucille. Lucy is a great nickname.

    Isadora - Beautiful.

    Mika- it's Japanese, not a mispelling of Micah - Pronounced Mee-ka right, not My-ka like Micah is? I really love Mika.

    Mia - This one is good as a nickname, but I don't like it as a full name.

    Winter - A summer, not a name. Some seasonal names, like June and May are okay, but Winter is taking it too far.


    Nicholas - Really like this one.

    Christian - Nice name. I myself prefer Christopher, but nothing wrong with Christian.

    Angelo - Love love love this name. I like Angela for a girl too.

    Keane - Never thought about using this name before but, hmmm, I like it.

    Kellan - Sounds made up and tacky.

    Jude - LOVE this name. Or you could use it as a nickname for Julian.

    Ianto (yan-toh)- begins with a capital 'i' not an 'L' - I don't really like how the name sounds, and he'd batlle both pronunciation and spelling issues all his life.

    Rhys - I like this name. And the spelling is so much better than Reece.

    Lucas - Love it.

    Kai (KYE) - Not my cup of tea, but nothing wrong with it.

    Micah - Not really a fan. It sounds so feminine. Also, you couldn't have a Mika and a Micah, and I prefer Mika.

    Anderson/Andersson - This is a last name and doesn't transfer well to a first name. Andrew is nice though.

    I really like some of your names and others I'm not so keen on. My favourite girls name is Lora or Helena and my least favourite is Lowri. My favourite boys name is Jude, and my least favourite is Ianto.

  • Girls:

    Lilja ~ Not bad. It's quite nice. I'm not a huge fan though.

    Gwendolyn ~ Hate that spelling. -yn in Welsh is masculine. I prefer Gwendolen.

    Estella ~ I dislike this name. It's too much. I prefer Estelle and Stella.

    Dara ~ Gaelic boys name.

    Annona ~ Dislike. I just don't find it pretty or attractive.

    Lowri ~ It's ok. Nothing special though.

    Tessa ~ It's cute but not great.

    Mary ~ Hate Mary. Too Biblical for my liking.

    Helena ~ Beautiful. I love this name. It's pretty and feminine.

    Nicholas ~ Handsome, masculine boys names. One of my favourites.

    Christian ~ Ugh this is awful. No child should ever be called Christian. It's not fair. You may as well be calling them something like Atheist or Islam.

    Lilja (lil-ya) ~ I like Lilia or Lilya, but I don't like the spelling of Lilja. I think a lot of people would have trouble pronouncing it.

    Gwendolyn ~ I love this name! It's old but cute, and I predict it will have a burst of popularity in years to come :) One of my best friends is called Gwendolen (Gwen for short).

    Estella ~ Sorry, I don't like it. I love Stella or Stela though.

    Dara ~ Nope :/ I like Lara or Dana though, which are very similar :) Lana is nice too.

    Annona ~ It doesn't flow very well, how about just plain Anna, with Annie as a nickname?

    Lowri (loh-ri/low-ri) ~ Cute!

    Tessa ~ Adorable, although I prefer Tess.

    Mary ~ I really hate this name, it's so old and boring :/ Sorry. I love Maria though, which is almost the same!

    I really like Estella, Helena and Isadora.

    I like Lilja (though I think it looks better as Lilia and I love the name Lila), Dara, Tessa (but as a nickname for Teresa), Lora, Mary and Mia.

    I'm ambivalent about Lucille, Mika, Luna, Gwendolyn and Annona.

    I don't really care for Winter (too hippy for me) and Lowri (I just don't think it's very pretty, sorry)


    I really like Nicholas and Lucas.

    I like Christian, Jude (but as a nickname for Judah), and Rhys (though I much prefer the spelling Reese).

    I'm ambivalent about Angelo (not my style), Kellan (sounds a bit too feminine for me) and Anderson (I'm not a fan of surnames as first names).

    I don't care for Keane (It seems too bland to me), Ianto (it's isn't terrible but I'm not fond of the sound) and Kai (I've just never cared for this as a name).
