    Wren Eilley Wren is OK
    Olyvia Jade Not a fan of the wacky spelling
    Willow Not bad
    Grace A bit overused
    October I actually like this, because I worked with an October, her nickname was Toby
    Legend Please don't name your son this
    River Not a fan
    Scout Not a fan
    Liam Love this name

    Hope that's not too harsh :blush:

    Wren Eilley - I love Eilley.
    Olyvia Jade - Cute spelling for Olyvia.
    Willow - Reminds me of that movie with the dwarfs (SORRY!)
    Grace - Old fashioned, but very cute!
    October - Adorable! I've never heard it used as a name, but I love it.

    For a boy:
    Legend - LOVE it.
    River - This is cute, too.
    Scout - Not my favorite.
    Liam - Was on my list, too, but I like Legend better.

    :)

    Wren Eilley - I like this
    Olyvia Jade - I love the name Olivia. However, spelling it Olyvia doesn't make it unique, it just makes you look illiterate (sorry!) and she would spend her life spelling it to people
    Willow - Really like
    Grace - Never been a fan of the Grace, Faith, Hope names
    October - cute and unique

    For a boy:
    Legend - A very big name to live up to!!
    River - great, although I do prefer it on a girl
    Scout - again, prefer on a girl
    Liam - bad associations, not a fan, fine name though

    Other suggestions. I googled nature names, so the meanings are all to do with nature:

    Winter
    Sage
    Violet
    Kiele
    Skye
    Acacia
    Ayla
    Amber
    Pearl
    Autumn
    Ivy
    Iris
    Clover
    Lotus
    Jasmine
    Aeris
    Hava


    Ocean
    Leaf
    Storm
    Kane
    West
    Alder
    Oren
    Forest
    Saxon

    I love the names Grace and October.

    If this tiddler is a girl I plan to use Rain as her middle name.

    Out of your name options, my favorites are: Willow & Liam (i LOVE both names!!)

    I also love Olyvia Jade -- We have the name Alyvia on our list too! (i prefer the alternative spelling bc i love "A" names for girls... plus i think the "A" softens the sound of the name a bit!)

    Legend is cool. I had a friend with a dog named Legend, which i thought was an awesome name! However, it seems like an awful lot of pressure. Such a BIG name for a kid to live up to!

    How about Saige/Sage? I love this name for a boy or a girl (but seems to be mostly used for girls).

    How is Eilley pronounced? My friend has a daughter named "Ily" pronounced like Riley minus the "R" -- It means "I Love You"

    My son goes to school with a sweet little girl named October! Very cute!

    The only one I feel very strongly against is legend, that's a lot of pressure! And also if you want to have more children what do you name the others once you've given one Legend?
    Scout seems a bit like more of a little boy's name than a man's name. The rest I like :thumbup:

    Legend is a horrible name and the poor boy will be picked on.

    I like the rest of the names though!
