I just wanted to say since I havenít before that I really enjoy this board. I have loved baby names forever, and I love having a place to go to discuss them even if I donít have any children and am not pregnant yet. So thanks for letting me be a part! I like different names, but not too crazy. I donít mind popular names, but I donít personally want to use them. I already know I have weird taste haha and yes I do like boys names for girls.

I was really just wondering opinions on some of my favorite names. If you like them or not or if you have other spellings or options you prefer. Feel free to put any first and middle names together if you get really bored. Thanks in advance and sorry it is forever long!

Girls:

Haven
Amalia or Amalie
Calla
Braylon
Ainsley
Loghan
Hadley
Shyler
Tate
Briar
Rayna
Rhiannon
Harper
Dylan
Micah
Dakota
Mataya
Cadence
Delia
Isley
Kyrie
Lyla
Peyton
Reece
Willa

Middle Names:

Amber
Claire
Soleil
Cora
Victoria
Jo
Cate
Isabella
Aurora
Jude
Audrey
Lilly
Esme
Avery
Olivia
Brielle
Simone
Juliet
Sienna
Raine

Also I really like the names Livi, Lexi, and Evan for girls but am trying to figure out the best longer names for them besides the obvious ones. Right now Iím on Livienne or Livia, Lexia, Evangeline or Evanleigh. Any thoughts?

Boys:

August
Madden
Milo
Torrin
Baylor
Rafferty
Cambrian
Elias
Hudson
Kieran
Finley
Maverick
Layton
Thatcher
Tiernan
Josiah
Shiloh

Middle Names:

My absolute fave from your girls list is Harper. And also I love Tate as a mn. I know a girl that named her daughter Lydia Tate. But for Harper I would use a really feminine mn as it is kind of a more masculine name to me. Kind of like pairing Dylan with a more girly name. Our friends have a daughter named Dilyn Claire and I think her name is just beautiful. It is her sister with the little girl named Lydia.

As for your boy list- I like:

Baylor
Hudson/Hutson
Finley/ nn Finn
