One little boy Judd
Felix, Zara,Esme, and three brothers
Juliet, Matilda, and two brothers
Also, most I say "air". Dara, Lara, Mara, and Yara are the "are" sound to me.
Hi! I'm hoping to join in! So much fun!
This one is really tough! My favorite would be Zara, as it's different but I think works on a kiddo or an adult. And my niece is named Zara :)
Michaela, Makayla, Mikayla, McKayla, or some other spelling
We had a little boy in September and named him Judd! I had only heard it from my grandfather's middle name (which is why we chose it). I love it as an alternative to Jude/Judah and rustic/old timey without being over used! (Note, he will not show up on name statistics, as his formal first name is Robert, for hubby's grandpa who passed away right before baby was born).
I would love to meet a young Blythe! It's on my list for our next baby! As are Beatrix, Cecily, and Sylvia
I love your list! Your style is a lot what I want my style to be.
Arthur, Warren, Albert, and Calvin all seem a little more grandpa style. Though, I'm not thoroughly opposed to Arthur or Calvin, as they both have nice nicknames.
The only ones of your names that my first association is biblical are Joel and Gabriel. Although, they admittedly both have plenty of other associations.
Linus makes me think of Peanuts, but thatstnot a bad thing. And it's a cool name.
Leo, Emmett, and Theodore are all becoming more popular in my area (midwest usa).
I think Adrian, Ambrose, Julius, and Ansel fit your criteria best. Runners up dor me would be Arthur and Jonas.
I second the vote for Meghan! She certainly has been the talk of the year, with her wedding and now the baby. I love the reasons listed above. She is so different from the "stereotypical" British royal and her name is part of that difference.
Congratulations! I'll throw in some:
Theodore, Felix, George, James
Vivian, Rose, Caroline, Nora
My newest one: big sister Mirage and new baby sister Illusion
I love your kids' names! Gorgeous!
I'll suggest Quincy, Wesley, Brooks, Walter, Bennett, Oliver, Felix, Lysander, and Brandt.
Emma is too popular for my tastes, as theee always seems to be an Emma or Emily around. But it is a nice name.
I love the name Lydia, always have, and would honestly name my baby Lydia, except I have an aunt-in-law named Lydia. She is the sweetest though, as are the other two Lydias I have met. I also love Ariana, unusual but not strange. I've met 1 I think.
Top 5 Boys

Top 5 Girls
Adeline, Juliet, Felicity, Paulina, Willa
Tara is 40 years old.
How old is Robert?
Thank you! Yeah, I'm sure there will be plenty of nickname that come from Judd! Thank you also for the thoughts about using a middle name. I had a friend recently share her experience going by her middle name, so I am rethinking that aspect.
Thanks for your thoughts! If we used Judson he would still be called Judd. I'm just worried about the flow of Judd Robert.
I think everything you wrote about Geneva (why you like it, etc) says a lot more about the nann than the fact that it happens to start with the same initial as your eldest's name. I tend to think that two kiddos with matching initials is a coincidence, but three + states a pattern.
You like Louisa, which I think sounds great with your daughter's name. I'll suggest Luella as well as Lucinda.
Best of luck!
It strikes me as a girl name now, more than boy.
