    Looking for help making combos (middle names don't have to be from the list. I don't like Marie, Lynn, Faith, Jade, Faye, Grace, Dawn, or Jo for girls or Michael for boys) and add more names to the list. Please don't change combos I've already made unless otherwise noted.

    I love classic and vintage names that aren't too common (ideally, FNs would be outside the top 200, but I'll consider something in the 150-200 range, depending on how much I like it).
    I'm of Irish, Latvian, Scottish, and Scandinavian heritage, so that's a plus, but not required. I like a lot of international names in general too, as long as they're easy to spell and pronounce.

    I hate BNOGs and almost all "unisex" and "gender-neutral" names for girls, but more flexible for boys. I'm also not a fan of a majority of trendy, modern names or anything made up or misspelled.

    I also can't use Morrigan because it's my niece's name.

    Last name will be Fleming.

    Boys:
    Dmitri James
    Lachlan Elliott
    Callum Raymond (not set on Raymond)

    I think you’ve given yourself too many options. You should weed down to your top 5 favorite first names and then decide middle. This list seems overwhelming. Personally I like Ruth, Ada, Maeve, and Eve better as middle names for a girl :) Reid and Sage are great for boy middles. You’ve already got great names here, I don’t think anyone is going to suggest better and more choices isn’t going to help. Only you know what you like.

    I like Ruth and Eve better as middle names too. I have a hard time narrowing down my list and choosing the top 5, particularly for boys. I'm terrible at that. Lol! None of them stand out as the "perfect" names to me no matter how much I like them. But Lilia, Freya/Freyja, Vera, Irena, and Fiona are definitely at the top of the girls' list with Lilia being #1.

    Honestly, the name I have chosen for this babe wasn’t my top at all. It was a compromise with my partner because we had such a hard time agreeing on a first name. It’s grown on me and I can’t imagine calling her anything else. It will come to you! And just feel right.. I say pick one, sit with it for a bit and see if it sticks. <3

    Ours is Chloe Emirah Nabi (last name Yoo)

    I agree with the previous comment, you don’t need MORE names on that list.. I’d definitely sit down and pick a top 5 of each, with your partner. They’ll probably hate at least half the names you suggest so that helps narrow it down lol

    FWIW my top ones are Freya and Adelaide from your girl list and Oscar and Raphael from your boy list. :)

    I don't have a partner, but so true that he'd probably hate half the names here if I did. Lol. My mom would call most of the boys' list "old man names" though. I still prefer older ones over modern ones. I can't picture an adult named Nevaeh or Zayden.

    I agree there’s too many options there, my lists where like this to begin with, rule some out for definite then take it from there, personally my favourites from the boys list are Stanley, Frederick, Tobias and Alfred, but I do tend to prefer classic well established names over modern, have you considered Arthur and Sebastian?

    from girls list I like Cecily, theodora, estella, Georgia, and phoebe, estella has a really cool contemporary vibe to it, I like the name odette but think it’s the name of the evil swan from black swan, or was that odille? What about Ophelia? Or Otilie?
    Not sure where you are based but Phoebe is currently in the top 50 in the uk I think

    For classic names there is also Victoria and Alexandra which are not in the top 100 in the UK, but I am very biased about these names as they are the names of my daughters ha ha, I also like Alexis and Anna

    I don't know why, but the name Raphael just stuck in my head. I really can't figure out why.
