Ada I like it - short and sweet!
Gabriella (Ella or Gabby) Prefer Ella - very elegant
Eve also a sweet short choice, even nicer than ada
Annabeth Makes me think of a quiet and gentle girl - which could match perfectly or could conflict with a little tomboy
Maya Not my cup of tea - I just think of the Mexican ruins! Weird, I know..
Lilah Is it Lee-la or Lie - la?
Clara Old fashioned. In a nice way.


Quinn I LOVE this name. Of course, this is my child's name, so I'm biased!
Finnigan (Finn) Also way cute
Lucas (Luke) Its nice but I always think of George "Star Wars" Lucas
Micah Love it - very Old Testament
Gaelan Now think of the playground nicknames. Right. Might be a rough life with this one.
Isaac Classic.
Caleb Not my fave but I have no good reason why

Carpe Diem

I have to say I'm not the biggest fan of Gabriella or Gaelen, but I really like all your other choices. One of my daughter's is named Maya, so I definitely like that one.

Ada Not my style.
Gabriella (Ella or Gabby) Love it, partial because I have a cousin named Gabriella.
Eve Cute.
Annabeth Love it! Very similar to my favorite name Annabelle.
Maya Love it as well.
Lilah It's okay.
Clara Like Claire much better. Probably because my sister's name is Claire.

Quinn Makes me think of Daria. <sorry>
Finnigan (Finn) Not a big Finnigan fan, but I do like Finn.
Lucas (Luke) Lucas is a great friend of mine, Luke is my ex-boyfriend. They're both great names though.
Micah Reminds me of the rock Mica.
Gaelan Sounds a bit feminine.
Isaac Love it!
Caleb Love this one too!

Favorite Girls Names: Annabelle Irene, Ruby Claire, Charlotte Rose, and Stella Louise.
Favorite Boys Names: Nathaniel Grey, Sebastian Eric, Connor Thomas, and Elijah Robert.
