Julianna – This is FI’s family dog’s name so I have a bias in not liking it. Although I prefer Julia to Julianna for a girls name.
Gwen/Gwendolyn – I love these names. Although if it were my baby I would go with Gwen just to keep it simple as people will end up shortening Gwendolyn to Gwen anyways. But if you are ok with that then cool.
Fiona – I think of Shrek. But it has potental for someone to grow into.
Audrey – I like this name because it is a little uncommon but not uncommon enough that people can’t spell it. FI’s cousin is named Aubrey which I actually like as a name as well. I had never heard it before her.
Nadia – Very nice name. Has an air of class to it.
Clara – Again I have a personal bias against this name but I think in comparision to you other picks this one is the weakest.
Jasper: Love this name for a boy. Actually most of your boys names would probably be on my list if I were able to have children. But this one is awesome. I like.
Leif – I know a Leif! Hah. And it is funny because someone said above that mixing some of these boys names (more country/unusual) and these girls names (traditional) would be weird. Well his brother has a very common name. Like think of a common person/dog name. I always tell him he got screw in the name department and that his brother got the cool name.
Dmitri – I love this name too. I worked for a Greek family and one of my favourite people to work with was Dmitri. Also reminds me of the Russian Premie in Dr. Strangelove.
Lake – Someone said above this reminds them more of a girls name. For me I disagree. Lake reminds me a lot of “Blake” with is a boy’s name I really like.
River – River feels more like a girl’s name to me than a boy’s name. But I mean look at River Phoenix. Yeah, his parent’s were hippies but he had a successful life.
Brad/Bradley – I like Brad more than Bradley. Bradley to me ears doesn’t sound nice.
Ashton – Is an alright name I think of Ashton Kutcher when I hear it personally but I think it is a pleasent name. You could always just go with Ash, you know…Evil Dead/Army of Darkness Ash… 😀
Clint/Clinton – Clint sounds too much like another word and I know how boys get with teasing and such (especially if they play sports like Football/Hockey). And Clinton sounds like a last name to me rather than a first name. And reminds me too much of that president.
Trent/Trenton – I actually don’t mind these names. Not something I would ever name my children personally but not something that would make me turn my head and be like “What the hell was that mom thinking?!”
Ronan/Ronin – I like Ronan better than Ronin.
Rhett – Said similar to “riot” or is there a better way of saying it? If it is said close to “riot” I would say no, so many boys I am finding these days have names that rhyme or sound like riot. I just don’t find it a pleasent sound in the ears.
Sage – I went to high school with a girl name Sage. Enough said. 🙂
I liked all your other girls middle names except Lyric. I think you go from nice natural names to kind of an offbeat almost “metal” sounding name. Which I think doesn’t fit with the other names you picked.
Overall, I think you picked some solid names. Don’t worry about the boys/girls names not matching, following, theming, whatever. I knew someone named Ocean whose brother was named Daniel. So there you go. And the other story above. All these people are adjust, hard working and kind.
Can’t you all just tell I am waiting for laundry to be done. 😛
