You can't beat the combination of simplicity, strength, and softness that Rose has.
My two other "rose" favorites are Rosalie and Rosalind.

I felt that way too! Plus, I was even more confused when my old favorites just didn't sound good to me anymore.
I think @theirishsaint is right. Just have fun and collect name that sound good...
Well, I used my favorite girl's combo for my daughter! I really love short and spunky names for girls and Phoebe just fit the bill. Plus, it had no obvious nickname, which I like. Isobel is a nod...

Any one syllable first names! Our last name is one syllable and it just makes almost all one syllable first names sound really choppy. I tend to like short and punky names so that ruled out a lot...

I had to let go of Cora because my sister-in-law's name is just too close to that. My in-laws already have a hard time pronouncing many names (my MIL pronounces Cameron as cam-er-RON) so there would...

I love Malcolm! But I also like all the other names as well. Tough decision!
To answer your question, we debated names back and forth for awhile. He had his favs, I had mine, and we had some...

What about just Kate? That's my legal first name and I had no middle name until I moved my maiden to that slot when I got married. My parents couldn't think of one they liked so it's just...Kate! I...
Agree totally with @aym. Eve is a great middle name but I don't think it works as a double barrel name with Patricia. Patty Eve doesn't really flow either. I do like Patricia with your other sib...
I knew someone named Elizabeth but called Birdie. Loved that nickname!
Cora is short and strong, Coralie is more flowery.
I think both are beautiful but I prefer Cora because it sounds grown-up and spunky all at once. Almost gave my daughter this name but sadly...

Araminta- I'm not usually a fan of three-syllable girly names, but I love this one. It's super feminine but strong and with a tinge of a vintage vibe. Love.
Celeste- This is one of the most...
I don't think you should let your relatives scare you off Ombeline if you truly love it. It's hard to tell if you really have your own reservations or if your relatives just made you doubt yourself...

I think most people default to Ben as a nickname. I agree that Benny/Benji are awful! In fact, Benjamin was one of the few traditional boys' names that my husband I could agree on and that we could...
If you want to honor your mom but aren't into Maria, what about another version of Mary? I love Lila Miriam.
I personally would like to see a one syllable MN similar to the flow of your older girl's name (which I love!). What about
The closeness of the "r" sounds makes them a bit tough to say together, but to be honest, I think the obsession with name flow is a bit overrated. Most of the time, we just call our kids FirstName. ...
Too bad...Caroline is a favorite of mine and I love your name too! How about Adeline (nn Addie) or Josephine (nn Josie)? I think those could work in English and French.

Lovely list! I can see why you are having a tough time. For me, names like Kendall and Darcey don't seem to fit in with the rest of your naming style. From your list, I like:

I really like Thisbe! So sassy and cute. I never associated it with "this be" and I think spelling with a "z" really puts it over into the kre8tive kamp for me. The name is already lovely and...

I wouldn't nix it. I really like Eva and find it refreshing and not as popular as Ava. Plus, I love the "life" name meaning connection to Zoe. Really wonderful pairing.

Ronan Arthur is my vote! I love that it honors both grandfathers. Ronan is "little seal" and gives me the image of an active, inquisitive, and intelligent boy.

I love alliteration in names and Violet Vukovic is so adorable!!!! Violet Eliana is very lovely. Go for it!
Love love love love Nora! I do know who Norah Jones is and she's not so famous that people would automatically make the association. I think if you love Nora, you should stick with it.
