I like Olivia and Charlotte and Lucas, Noah and Caleb

I wouldn't use any though.

I'm not surprised by any.

Except, I personally have never met a Harper and I think it's strange that it's gotten so much acceptance as a female name. To me it will always be a surname.

Siiigh. I'm surprised Harper is up there. Haven't heard anyone named it. If we have any more kids, it's our first pick for a girl. The others I'm not so surprised.

For girls I like Aubrey, Layla, and Avery. My fiance and I were actually considering Layla for our daughter. And I absolutely LOVE Aubrey (I would spell it Aubree though) I really want to name my next child Aubree Hope, if it was a girl and if I even have another child lol, but my fiance isn't a big fan of the name :( 

And for boys I like Carter, Brayden, and Mason. And my fiance has a son named Lucas. I wouldn't name my child Brayden though because its too similar to my daughter's name, Braelyn.
