Which names do you like?

Yes, I am still baby name hunting but I have a list now One step at a time right. Here is my list and I am just looking for opinions on which names you like or hate. I like to get others opinions to make sure our names don't end up to far out there or too hard to figure out how to pronounce. Now, keep in mind we like usual names and we are having twins so we need two names.
Sibling names: Jace, Afton, Thayer, Dresden and our last name starts with an H

Baby Name List:
Ellery
Zaydee or Zaidee
Ireland
Rowan
Willow
Kirani
Ailish
Oakley
Quiana

Kirani, Ailish, Quiana are the only ones I don't like. I don't even strongly dislike them I just like the others better.

Re: Which names do you like?

Hubby is really pushing for Rowan and has been for months now. I am afraid it has became too popular.

I grew up with an Ellery and shes the only Ellery I have ever met. So I like that due to it being rare and original. Plus cute! I think Ellery and Oakley are super adorable as a pair.

Agree with this. I also like Willow and Rowan. Ellery is cute too but I had the thought right away that one or all of my brothers would end up saying celery instead lol. On purpose, of course.

Re: Which names do you like?

I love talking baby names... though of course it can be controversial. I like names that aren't common... but that aren't made-up and totally out there.

Sibling names: Jace, Afton, Thayer, Dresden and our last name starts with an H

Ellery - makes me think of celery!
Zaydee or Zaidee - perhaps people might think you're saying "Sadie"?
Ireland - Not crazy about place names
Rowan - like this one
Willow - like this one
Kirani - ehhh
Ailish - ehhh
Oakley - makes me think of Annie Oakley or the sunglasses brand
Quiana - ehhh

Re: Which names do you like?

Ok so be prepared I am about to show you the scary way my brain works but you did ask.
Ellery- I love this name so much but spelled Ellory. Because Ellery reminds me of how the Beatles say Enery instead of Henry in 'Henry the 8th I am". I hate the beetles and it annoys me to no end that they leave the 'h' off. Again I feel like now is a good time to point out you asked.

Zaydee or Zaidee- just no,it sounds like a planet from outer space. Plus it doesn't match the other names well. I do love Sadie though.

Ireland- very pretty but very popular which isn't bad but you said you wanted less common.

Rowan- same as Ireland

Willow- same as Ireland ,again these are all beautiful names nothing wrong with them at all. They also may not be as common in your area and even if they are who cares if you love them.

Kirani- For some reason I keep saying karate when I try to pronounce it. Not sure why clearly most people can read apparently unlike me ,so it should be fine. Again you did in fact ask.

Ailish- no, the 'i' after the A throws off the pronunciation. Also not clear on if the last 4 letters are pronounced leash or lish.

Oakley- sounds masculine to me.

Quiana- I am not sure how this is supposed to sound. But it reminds me of quinoa - the gluten free grain. Not that it is a bad thing. But I also don't think it goes very well with the other names you have listed.

I think it is harder when you have to pick two become you want them to go well together while making sure each one is nice on its own as well.

If she inteads it to sound like other Quianas I know, it is KEY-AH-NA.
