What do you think of these names?

My DH and I are in our 2nd cycle of TTC...I can't help it but I'm already thinking of names.

Family Names for boys:
Richie - DH's grandfather's middle name (was a surname at one point that only produced girls. Grandfather has commented about not wanting the name lost)

Allen - DH's middle name

Scott - Father In Law's middle name

Columbus - My father's first name (he died 2 years ago)

Oliver - (My father's middle name but it's been overused. My brother named his first born son, Oliver. My sister named her son Marques Oliver)

Gregory - DH's first name

Random Boy Names we kinda like:
Aiden
Alexander
Ashton
Damon
Gabriel
Jeremiah
Micah
Noah
Tanner

Girl names:

Aria
Arabella
Catalina
Delaney
Gabriela
Nicole
Olivia (female version of Oliver)
Rose
Raelyn

I would choose one of the family names (but not Oliver because of it being used for cousins already) as the middle name and then choose one of the names you like as a first name.

I think Richie goes well with all of the names.
I think Allen does not go with Aiden or Micah.
I think Scott goes well with all the names.
I think Columbus is a hard middle name to put with anything but I don't see it being terrible with any of your picks.
I think Gregory goes best with Aiden and Ashton.

For girl names I'm not fond of Catalina because of the dressing, sorry! You'll have the most trouble with pronunciation/spelling in school with Raelyn I believe. Have you considered Arabelle instead of Arabella? Obliviously I love Olivia (my daughter's name) but with all the Oliver names in your family you might want to avoid it. I think Delaney is lovely.
