#1. Scout
#2. Shiloh
#3. Sawyer
#4. Greenlee

I strongly dislike Scout. It's not a child's name to me. Even in the book, it was a nickname, not her real name. It's cute on a puppy, but..
Shiloh is okay, but it will always remind me of the dog, and then the Jolie-Pitt baby.
I love Sawyer on a boy, and even more so on a girl. I'm in the minority though.
Greenlee is okay, but not my style. Reminds me of green tea.


#1. Briggs
#2. Truett
#3. Woodrow

I don't really like any of these, sorry. Briggs makes me think of a prison, Truett is okay, but isn't my style, and Woodrow is also okay but not my style - I don't like any of the inevitable nicknames.

They aren't really my style but of them I like Truett and Greenlee, but I dont like the spelling. Thinking of writing Greenlee in cursive about makes me dizzy.

#1. Scout: I'm a huge To Kill a Mockingbird fan, so I am drawn to this name. Its darling, however I wonder how it would age? While it would be darling on a child, I guess I may have a hard time imagining a grown professional with this name.

#2. Shiloh: by far my favorite from your list. I absolutely love this name. I love the meanings, all of which vary by source but are regardless, very appealing: wished for, he(she) who was sent, peace, etc.

#3. Sawyer: not a huge fan of this, as I know many little boys named Sawyer. It is cute, though.

#4. Greenlee: I dislike it. It looks a little bit made up to me.

For a boy:

#1. Briggs: This is okay for me. The meaning (priggish) really turns me off to it.

#2. Truett: Not sure why, but this doesn't sit right with me.

#3. Woodrow: Sounds very high class, however would it be possible to avoid the nn Wood? I'm not sure how I feel about that. Row, however, could be cute! This is my favorite of your boys names.

Other suggestions:

Girls:
Linden
Ellis
Emery
Tiernan
Rowan
Landry



Boys:
Lincoln
Aidric
Hugh
Reed
Alcott
Edison
Bingham
Thatcher
Dempsey
Cormac

Sawyer is a BOYS name. The only name I care for on your lists is Briggs (if you put Sawyer on the boys list it is a great name). I know a little boy named Woodland nicknamed Woody. His brother's name is Jovial.

I love Scout. If we EVER had another daughter, it would be her name.
Shiloh is okay, I see it more on a dog then a person.
Sawyer is cute. I can see it on both boys & girls.
Greenlee is nms.

Briggs is cute.
I think Truett and Woodrow would be better middle names.

I actually really like the name Greenlee, but it reminds me of this character on a soap that my mom used to watch. lol. Cute though for a girl. No offense, but I really don't like any of the boy names. I have problems with all of them. I love the name Sawyer though, but for a boy. I have been pushing on DH ever since we began talking about having kids. He still doesn't like it. LOL.

For a girl I like Scout and Shiloh out of your names. I like Sawyer too but only on a boy.

My favorite out of your boy names is Truett but only because I like the nickname True

#1. Scout - I LOVE Scout, if DH weren't so opposed to it, I would name my daughter that.
#2. Shiloh - Unfortunately, it reminds me of the dog :/
#3. Sawyer - It's more of a boy's name to me, but then again, my name is Dani so I can't really say anything lol. The more I think about it though, the more I love it for a girl.
#4. Greenlee - Not my style.

None of your boy names are my style, so I can't really give an opinion on them.
