The ones I like/love. I bolded the ones I love and would consider using (if I haven't already).

William
James
Charles
- Love nn Charlie
Edward
Thomas - For a mn as its a family name and the island Dh and I were married on.
Henry
Arthur
Jack

Samuel
Anthony - my son's mn!
Leo


Anna - I can't seriously consider it as it rhymes with my name; but I've considered Annabelle and Lilyanna.
Lillian - LOVE Lily
Rose
Grace
Ruby
Lucille - because Lucy is starting to really grow on me
Julia - can't seriously consider as its MIL's name; but we've considered Julian for a boy and Juliet for a girl
Eva
Sarah - I'd consider using this one as a formal name for the nn Sadie that has really started to grow on me.

I can't believe some of the names that were popular - Bessie, Herman, Minnie, Elmer, Bertha???
