The surname is short and unusual - it needs a strong name to balance it. Third sylabel (sorry about the spelling!) seems to work best but they can be trickier to find. We don't mind something a bit different but also love the older names.

If a boy -
Douglas
Sebastian
Luca
Finn
Gabriel

If a girl -
Amalie
Louisa
Kate
Anna
Linnet
Lorelei

Forgot Beatrix and Faith if a girl.

Claudia? I know a lovely one

Oh and Elsa, Blythe and Cecily/Cecilia. Sorry! That's it now.

Finn and Anna

Cecelia is lovely and also really like Claudia as suggested above

I also like Anna and most of your other girls choices except Lorelei shock

Sebastian or Gabriel for a boy

Love love love Linnet. Also Gabriel. They go well together. (Lucy M Boston fan?)

Also like Anna and Luca a lot. Not keen on Lorelei (reminds me if the dippy blonde in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, wasn't she Lorelei?) but others are all nice too.

Finn, Gabriel, Anna and Lorelei I like most.

Love Blythe

Gabriel & Anna (I am biased, I have one of them and the other was on a shortlist smile )

I am also like name Luka and Amalie for boy or girl. Both names are very cute and sounds very well.

Finn and Elsa

Love Douglas. The rest of your boys names feel a bit popular and not keen on Gabriel.

Love Anna out of your girls names. Linnea is another one which is similar to your list and pretty.
