Suggest names for my husband's what some may call "dated" naming style?
So my husband and I are 10 years apart in age, and his proves difficult when trying to agree on names! Some names he suggests I have to veto as I have known soo many all my life, and vice versa. He only ever suggests names like Ashley, Lindsay, Brianna, Marissa... Nothing wrong with these names but I can think of 5-10 of each! My style is a bit more old fashioned (Evelyn, Nora, Caroline, etc) but I'm trying to open myself up to his style and see if we can find a diamond in the rough. (My daughters name Brenna came from this compromise as well, and I do love it!)
Some names I feel "fit" this category that I like:
These are names that I know many would find boring or dated but neither of us have any associations with them.. so in our minds, they're refreshing. (Though my husband isn't as into Valerie or Tara as I thought he might be...)
Can you tell me what your opinions on any of these names are or, better yet, think of more names that would fall into our common ground? Tall order I know.. Thanks!
