I will take everyone's advice and drop Wren I guess, I don't want people to be confused by my name choices.
@goodkarmavt, I love Romilly too! I had kind of written it off though because I didn't want 2 daughters with names starting with Ro. And Wynne is cute but would people think I named her "win?" A nickname of Wynnie would obviously be implemented in some cases.
You have many great suggestions from people so far. I love Sage as a suggestion. I am a bit biased because Sage and Rowan have been a favorite sibset of mine for years.
A suggestion that popped into my head is Calla. I know you said you wanted to avoid the -a ending, but Calla sounds so good with Rowan to me. Also calla lily fits with nature. Probably not your style, but just wanted to throw it out there.
True but Row and Rom are 2 different sounds. People might think win, but its a name, and a nice one at that. What about Bay? Or my friend has a daughter named Baya. She said its Scandanavian.
I always get such happy feelings looking over your lists...love the idea of another nature/word name to go with Rowan!
Chandra (I know it's got the -a, but this one is considered unisex. I love the earthy pairing with Rowan and the lunar meaning)
Pearl (too feminine?)
Seren (Welsh for star, and you get your Wren sound! You could potentially even use Wren as a nickname)
Sparrow (too close to Rowan?)
Good luck, excited to see your new list come together :)
Whoa! Definitely gonna have to come back later in the evening to go through this list! Thanks so much.

I dislike Sawyer on a girl, I find the name unattractive for females to harsh and masculine. Whereas I do like Wren, which is a simple rural sounding name. Wren looks attractive I also like how Rowan sounds with Wren even though they do feel slightly similar they have the same feel and work.
Lilias & Rowan Jane
Ashley & Rowan Jane
Tatum & Rowan Jane
Willow & Rowan Jane
Shiloh & Rowan Jane
Taylor & Rowan Jane
Waverley & Rowan Jane
Sage & Rowan Jane
Wow! This thread is full of awesome ideas!! What about another unisex name with a link to a tree in the meaning. I see that Waverly has already been mentioned. I would echo that and add Everly and Oakley. Maybe Lennox too?
Oh and I wanted to add that I quite like Sawyer for a girl or boy. I think it's really fresh and spunky. It has a lot of energy!
