Early days yet, but starting to get a list of names together, and I have about 40 girls names, but only about 5 boys names and I'm not sure I even like them much!
My only criteria are:
1) Can't start with N.
2) Must have possible nickname/s. smile

What's on your list of girls names? And what's on your small list of boys names?
Gives us something to base ideas on!

Thanks! I do prefer shortened nn though, like I feel that Charles isn't really shortenable, because Charlie is just the same length IYSWIM?
Jonah's really nice, but doesn't go with surname unfortunately (2 syllables, begins with N)... smile

Benjamin is a lovely name, but I've just watched the whole box set of Lost which has put me off it a bit... I think I'll put it on the list though! smile

I only ever watched the first Lost. That was enough for me. grin
