In his comment Mazdziarz 2019 (2D Mater. 6 048001) raises doubts concerning the reliability of our test for dynamical (in particular elastic) stability of monolayer materials, which neglects the shear components of the stiffness tensor and only considers the sign of the planar stiffness coefficients. We agree that our analysis has not been complete, but find that it suffices in practice except for very few cases (less than 1% of the materials). Nevertheless, for completeness we are currently calculating the shear components of the elastic tensor for all the materials in the C2DB.
