I like all the names from your list with the exception of Skylar, never been a fan. I think Sky/Skye is pretty though and would make a nice mn for any of your considerations.

AUDREY (#49, 0.248%; peaked in 1928 at #60 with 0.387%)


Gender: Feminine

Usage: English

Pronounced: AWD-ree


Medieval diminutive of ÆÐELÞRYÐ. This was the name of a 7th-century saint, a princess of East Anglia who founded a monastery at Ely. It was also borne by a character in Shakespeare's comedy 'As You Like It' (1599). At the end of the Middle Ages the name became rare due to association with the word tawdry (which was derived from St. Audrey, the name of a fair where cheap lace was sold), but it was revived in the 19th century.

Oops -- reading comprehension issues once again!


AUBREY (#41, 0.268%, its peak; first on list for girls in 1973; on list for boys since 1880; dropped off list in 2003; peaked in 192 at #224, 0.053%)


Gender: Masculine & Feminine

Usage: English

Pronounced: AWB-ree


Norman French form of the Germanic name ALBERICH. As an English masculine name it was common in the Middle Ages, and was revived in the 19th century. Since the mid-1970s it has more frequently been given to girls, probably because of its similarity to Audrey.
