Damon always makes me think of Demon. I like all your other boy names.
It’s a fool’s errand to look for a name that kids can’t make fun of… if they want to pick on your kid, a well-vetted name won’t stop them. They will be in school for 12 years of their life – pick a name for the adult they will be.
Penelope is a beautiful name and Penny Alexander is a great nickname for those playground years.

Felix! I really like that one combined with your last name!

I love Hadley for a boy. I dont care that people use it as a girls name, its not exclusively a girls name, and I’m pretty sure it was originally a bys name anyway.

I knew a Penelope in school and when she was little everyone teased her horribly. They called her ‘loppy-lope’, ‘Penelope-pig’ and ‘melo-nelo’ every day at recess. I never forgot it and unfortunately think of it when I hear the name.

Agree with pp that the girls names become a bit of a mouthful with the surname due to the ‘a’ sounds.. especially Ellie Alexander, said without the middle name, as will be quite common for people to say names this way.
Penny is very cute though, out of Penelope, and one I don’t hear often.

My husband said his first choice for a girl is Penelope Mae with Ellie Rose as second choice, and Aiden Ray for a boy. He didn’t like any of the other boys names but Felix is really growing on me!

Lovely names 🙂 IMO Aiden and Ella/Ellie are waaay over used though and I personally would avoid them. Also all Hadleys I’ve met were girls if that matters.

Delilah Rose Alexander sounds beautiful.
I also like Felix and Oliver.
I find it interesting that people find Aiden super trendy. I only know 2 and they are both in there mid- late 20’s!

I LOOOOVE Oliver for a boy name. Only reason DH and I won’t be using it is because he had a beloved family dog named Oliver and I don’t wanna name a baby after a dog!
For a girl I love Penelope. I don’t think its overly used and Penny is a cute nickname! I also like Ellie, but I think Penelope would grow into adulthood better than Ellie. (no offense to anyone named Ellie….)
DH and I had our boy and girl name picked out before we started trying. Still not pregnant, or at least no sticky baby yet, but we still love the names! I keep looking for more names (because I’m crazy obviously) and haven’t found anything we both love as much as the two we have chosen. Granted I have a list of about 15 boy names I like and DH didn’t like many. And the one girl name he really likes aside from our chosen one, I don’t like at all. So it can be a process to pick a name! No harm in starting too early!

Felix The Cat, Wilbur the Pig, Ansell @$$h0le, HOHO Jose, any flower name etc. Please give a good think before naming your child.

Felix the cat isn’t so bad. IDK where you got those other names from. Like other users mentioned, kids will ALWAYS find something to make fun of if they want to. Besides, every name has a connection to it. Brittany? Britney Spears. I’d rather name my kids something unique than another Ashley or Brittany.

I had a kid in my room whose name was Virgin. No kidding. I let you figure out what the kids did with that.

I love your choice of names they have that southern belle sound to them

The only name in that list for girls that I see flowing with your surname, is Ellie. However, I am a sucker for Penelope, because I think Penny is such a cute name, but when she gets older she can use Penelope professionally. Nolan is different, good different.

“Ellie Alexander” has a nice ring to it (like “Allie Alexander”). Mae is also a nice middle name. In fact Ellie Mae Alexander is E.M.A and if she had another middle name with an M, then it could be E.M.M.A. lol
