Not going to lie. I like Weston Reid. For one, I like the sound of it. For two, I love the nickname Westy (knew a person with it). 

I’ve never liked the name Clarissa. So my top choice would be Freya followed by Avery.

I like Branson and Avery/Clarissa. They’re unusual without being over the top.

I prefer your husband’s choices by far. Weston Reid sounds nice together, and Wes is a good nickname.

Really don’t like Clarissa at all. It sounds very 90s, like Clarissa Explains It All.

I’m with your SO on name choices for both a boy and girl.  Not a fan of Branson, Clarissa (Clary) or Freya.

coraldee :  All I think of when I hear Branson is that place in Missouri…so I’d lose that one. I like Weston though. I like Clarissa as well. I feel like Avery has become a really popular girls name lately.

I really like Weston Reid. I’d keep brainstorming on girls’ names (you have plenty of time!) — the only one I like is Avery, but yeah, I think it’s quite common lately. Lynne is a wonderful choice for a middle name though!

I like Weston (Wes) a lot and do not like Branson at all.

I like Freya, but don’t think it goes with a Mc last name. I think Avery is too popular and Clarissa is too dated. I’d go back to the drawing board with girls’ names.

My friend has a little one named Wesley, and I love Weston too. I prefer Avery over Clarissa.

coraldee :  I don’t care for Branson very much, though the nickname Bran is very nice. Weston would definitely be the winner of the two. Wes is a very wonderful nickname and Weston Reed is an amazing name! Very strong and dignified. 

As for the girls, I think I like Clarissa just because it’s so unheard of and not very common. Avery is very nice as well, but compared to each other, Clarissa (nn Clary) wins in terms uniqueness.
