Romy - doesn't seem complete. How about Romilly?
Shiloh - Cute, but I try to avoid celebrity baby names. Plus, it's a beagle. However, it IS rather unpopular, but thanks to Angelina it's well-known enough that people will recognize it.
Sawyer - I actually love this on a girl, even though it's a boy's name.
]Liesel - LOVE. Fresh alternative to Leslie and Lisa, which both feel dated to me.
Marley - it's kinda cute, but I just can't get on board. Bob Marley doesn't bring around images of a little girl, and the movie Marley and Me doesn't help.

Some other suggestions for you to consider:
Hadley
Sabrina
Kelsey
Lorena
River
Delia
Esme
Adele
Dominique



Boys:
Winsten (Winnie) - Winsten is fine, though a bit snobbish for my tastes. Winnie is bad, sorry. Winnie the Pooh, Winning from Charlie Sheen, and Winnie from The Wonder Years.
Briggs - fine, but it makes me think of military jail cells
Woodrow (Woods) - Cute. Woody isn't a bad nickname.
Tyrus - Don't care for it.

Other suggestions:
Borg
Cyrus
Cedric
Crew
Thaddeus
Broderick
Jacoby

I'm not a fan of any of the girl names you've picked. What about Charlie? Or Sailor (Saylor)?

I think Woodrow is a really unique name and could work really well!

Esme is pretty for a girl and I like Sawyer for a boy.

I love the name Shiloh and I have to defend it! It's actually a biblical name of a town, not just from a story about a dog. I love Shiloh and if DH wasn't so picky I'd use it in a heartbeat .

I really like Sawyer and Marley!
Sawyer reminds me of a kids movie whose name I can't remember, and i'm too lazy to go look because i know I own it, but there is a female cat named Sawyer and I always thought it was adorable.
Not really digging the boy names, but I'm exceptionally picky about boy names.

But I really have to comment on the people who like the name Esme, while it's a pretty name, it just makes me think of the Twilight series. I'm already expecting to see tons of Isabellas here in the near future along with the other characters names. So a couple years down the road none of them are going to be very unique.

I don't mind Liesel (though I think it rhymes with weasel?) and Tyrus has promise. It depends on whether it's "TEE-rus" or "TIE-rus."

Love Liesel and Sawyer!
I like Briggs, it reminds me of an awesome football player by the name of Lance Briggs, which I personally think is a great thing, but that's just me! I wasn't too fond of your other boy choices...
