I started out talking about the ones I like best but I somehow ended up writing about them all.
Fionán - love it spelled Fionnan. One N looks strange to me. Kieran - spelled Ciaran. Kieran looks like it could become trendy quickly, if it isn't already. Miles / Milo - Miles makes me think of someone who is mean. Milo is really sweet though. Finch - interesting! I could see myself using it as a middle name, but not a first. Shealyn "Shea" - eh, not my style. Murray - not a fan; because of an unfortunate association, it makes me think of a dumb jock. Cyril - I only think of the Cyrillic alphabet, unfortunately (and end up pronouncing it wrong.) Lennox - not my style; makes me think of MacBeth. Vyvyan - I would normally criticize such a spelling, but since I know it's from a literary source, I totally understand the appeal. Darcy - Mr. Daaahhhrcy! a guilty pleasure for me. Runner Up: Monday - I'll just say I am not a fan.
Girls: Eliza - sweet and spunky. Estella - not a fan of Ella names. Finja - interesting. I'll have to think this one over. Georgiana - dislike; seems snooty. Mabel - warm, friendly, and inviting; love it. Juliet - I go back and forth on this one. Viviana - I prefer Vivienne. It has more zest. Magda - shortened for of Magdalena? Hmm. I could get behind that... Siân - Welsh, and exotic but restrained. Lovely. Philippa - never understood the appeal. Runner Up: Frances - Frances has been growing on me. She's lovely.
