Thanks for looking, I really appreciate any comments, especially because my list is so long and Andy refuses to talk about names until I am pregnant but I think he generally likes the same style of names but I need some feedback now and love how honest everyone is here.

Thanks again.

If you want to avoid unisex names, don't use Meredith. It was originally a male name and still is used as one in some parts of the world.

These all seem somewhat trendy: Atticus, Beau, Beckett, Clayton, Deacon, Griffin, Jett, Kane, Kian, Kieran, Leland, Lincoln, Preston, River, Sullivan, Trenton, Wesley
Annika, Bethany, Brenna, Callie, Chloe, Claire, Eliana, Hallie, Ireland, Jolie, Journey, Kaia, Lila/Lilia/Liliana, Whitney (actually this one is more 80s trendy), Willow

Suggestions:
Abraham, Noel, Wayland
Augusta, Aurelia, Lilias, Serena

Seamus and Rhiannon

But I may be biased there. (my son is Seamus, and we're using Rhiannon for our first girl)

MY TOP 10 FAVES OF YOUR LIST --- Very hard to narrow them down

Desmond, Donovan, Isaac, Julian, Julius, Malcolm, Maxwell, Silas, Solomon, Thaddeus

Athena, Dahlia, Eve, Helena, Josephine, Lena, Lilia, Lydia, Naomi, Sylvia


You have many great names here. One of my sons full names (Donovan Maxwell) and several other top names on my list. I left the ones I really really love. The only ones I dislike are

Duncan --- sounds clumsy
Soren -- sounds like Sore End
Bell names -- just don't like them
Edith
Gretchen -- sounds like someone getting sick
Elsa -- cowish
Ingrid -- harsh
Meadow --- too naturey even for me
