Adrienne -- I prefer Ariadne, bot this isn't a bad name
Alexandria -- this is my DD's middle name, and I LOVE it. Lots of nick name potential, if you're into that.
Carson -- This is still more of a boy name to me, but I don't object to boy names on girls. Might consider altering the spelling to make it at least look a bit more feminine, though. Karsyn is a favorite of some.
Cecilia -- Very pretty, very classic.
Demi -- I think it's a nick name, not a full name
Elena -- Very lovely, though I prefer it spelled Elaina
Faith -- Classic and timeless, but not my personal style.
Felicia -- I dislike it, though I'm not sure why
Gemma -- Makes me think of that old cartoon, Jem and the Holograms. Not a big name though.
Greta -- I really like this name, though it's kind of harsh and not especially feminine.
Heidi --
Helene -- I prefer just regular Helen
Iris -- All I can think about is eyeballs - I strongly prefer Isis
Jeanette -- Cute
Marina -- I dislike it because of the fish association
Rosalinda -- It's okay, though I prefer Rosalie
Violet -- not my personal style, but not a bad name at all
Waverly -- Hmmm... I think I like it.



August - dislike
Austin -- not my style, but not a bad name
Cade -- Seems overused to me, when you think about Caden
Carter -- This name seems to really be growing in popularity quickly. I'm not really a fan, but again, it's not bad.
Chase -- I love it
Cole -- not my style
Dalton -- not my style either.
Hanley -- the "ley" makes it seem really girly to me
Henry -- Classic, timeless, ages well. Can't go wrong with Henry.
Hunter -- it's okay
Jace -- I love it
Jackson -- I really prefer just plan Jack
Jaden -- It's alright, but not my favorite -aden name
Lane -- I don't like it for a boy
Mason -- not my style
Max -- I love it
Milo -- I love it
Walker -- Not my style

My favorites are Milo, Henry, Jace, and Chase; Alexandria, Heidi, and Waverly

On your girls' list... I like:
Adrienne-- it isn't bad... but I prefer Adria as a variation
Alexandria-- love this... obviously! Alexandra is my DD's name.
Cecilia--or Cecily
Gemma--I like it
Helene-- I like this... but I'd get MAD if anybody tried to use Helen as a NN

And as for the boy names...
August- I actually like this
Carter- love it! It's on my list too... unfortunately DH isn't sold yet.
Jace- I like this too.
Lane-- it strikes me as more of a girl's name though.
Mason-I think it's a nice, strong name.
Walker- I like this but I'd probably use it as a MN before I'd use it as a first name.
