In Response to Love, Like, Lose girls

Love: Luna (one of my favourites), Briony (sounds lovely and was also honour my Grandad) and Katia (this name sounds so nice to me. I also like the nn Kat)

Like: Isla (it's nice but there are too many girls named this), Fawn (I like the imagery of a deer with this name) and Ana (it's a classic)

1. For a girl, Florence. How is this a popular name? People describe it really cute and the most beautiful name they've ever heard. Really? This name sounds so old fashioned and not very cute to me. Also, I heard one person using this name only so they could use the nickname Flora. Why not just name her Flora?!? For a boy, Archie. Old, sleazy man's name in my opinion.

2. Girls name - Samantha. I love the unisex nickname Sam - I have always liked it for a girl. People tell me it's an 80s name but I don't care. I seem to love a lot of 80s names! Boys name - Eugene. I know it's old fashioned and not a cool name but I think it's adorable!

3. Ivy - mainly because I wanted to use it for my daughter as I thought it sounded unique and edgy. 

4. Pretty much most of the names ending in "son" being used on girls! (except for Allison - again with the 80s!)

5. Location names. Never liked them but recently I've discovered people in America naming their children after places in the UK such as Bristol, Brighton, Lincoln and Kingston. As a Brit, it just sounds ridiculous, especially if they've never been there. If they had been to some of those places, they may not have named their babies those names to be honest!

6. Bird names. I wasn't keen on Robin and Wren to begin with but now I kind of see the appeal of them.

7. There's not many names I like that begin with P, apart from Phoebe and Phoenix.

8. For a girl, Charlotte. It's nice but it's not that special really. Maybe it's just because I knew a load when I was growing up. For a boy, Oliver (my surname ironically enough!) It's nice but I don't it's the best name in the world.

9. Well, I've already mentioned my love 80s names and my love of Eugene, but I'll suggest a couple more. For a boy, I think Winston is a great name for a revival. People like old vintage names like Wilfred and Wilbur, why not Winston? For a girl, I'm going to suggest another great 80s classic - Heather. Botanical names are in at the moment with Fern, Ivy, Hazel, etc. Heather could be another great addition to that list.

10. Ingrid - a scandinivian name that means "beautiful"

For a girl, I'd choose Natalie. I think it's a very cute name that can grow with a girl throughout her life. Plus, I don't know anybody named Natalie (I know people with a lot of those names on the list). I also like Grace, Hannah and Elizabeth (mainly for nn Libby or Buffy).

I'd choose Samuel for a boy, again because it will grow with him and is cute. I love the nn Sam. It's just a timeless classic! I also like Andrew, Daniel and James.

I like Daisy, but if they want a floraly middle name, this may not be my first choice. I'm not saying it couldn't work though! I prefer the spellings of Darcy and Daphne. All three girls names are great.

For a floral middle name, how about: Rosa/Rosanna/Rosalie, Primrose, Heather, Marigold, Clover, Dahlia, Peony, Blossom

 

From the boys list I prefer Mason, followed by Matheo. For middle names, I think it would nice to continue with the nature theme.

How about: Hawthorne, Heath, Glen, Quill, River, Forrest, Bryn (means hill in Welsh)
