The list I have so far is:
Bertram
Cecil
Everard
Gilbert
Grayson
Joshua
Laurence
Miles
Sebastian
Stuart
Theodore
Timothy
Toby

I really like Grayson. The only ones DH likes are Timothy and Stuart.

Girls names I like are Cecily, Celeste, Beatrice but there isn't one I love.

Thoughts?

I like Everard and Laurence. How about Corinna for a girl?

Quentin always makes me think of Quentin Crisp.

I don't think today's kids will know who Quentin Crisp is, but we know two little Quentins - seems to be becoming more popular.

If you like Grayson, how about Leyton?

I love your boys names (with the one exception of Stuart)
My fantasy girls names are: Lydia, Cecily, Beatrice, flora, Olivia and I also really like vita, Martha, cordelia, Georgie and Agnes or agatha.
That's probably not helpful but I was interested to see that we have quite similar tastes.

By the way am feeling bit over excited by the name Gerald for some unknown reason - just thought I'd share that with you. Though I am sure I am the only one who feels this way at this point in history.

Everard and Grayson - really gringringringringrin

Agatha Olivia was my number one favourite name but as it's been top 5 for the last few years I ruled it out.

Oooh, I do like Gerald as a name. Makes me think of Gerald Durrell.

Everard is going to get "ever hard"
Bertram is awful.
The rest are actually all really nice names. My own favourites would be Laurence, Sebastian or Stuart.

All your girls names are lovely (not helpful!)

On your list I like Toby and Cecil

I loathe Grayson, it's awful

I like androgynous names like Kerry, Kim, Rowan, Christy, Kay

I have a Gilbert, so obviously love that. I really like Laurence and Timothy from your list.
I prefer Beatrix to Beatrice, but am not really loving your other girls names.
