    I think it's pretty cool, as long as you can find a name that you would want to give equally to a boy or girl. I've heard this done with Rowan (g), Riley (b and g) and Arrow (g.)

    It sounds like you're trying to consider too many things at once. I'd ignore Duane and Richard. If those must go in, they're a moot point and honour names trump flow. So the only consideration right...

    Why aren't you considering Laura, if that's what she went by? Amelia Ann is nice. Nora Amelia/Nora Ann don't have the same ring.

    Depends how you're pronouncing Ayla. Is it EYE-la or A-la (as in the letter A)?

    I love your name choices! Do you plan on calling Frances just-Frances or Frankie? That would help me imagine the full situation.

    Initial thought - would you consider Cecile? That gives you...

    Since you have two high-value letters in a vintage name already, why not go for a W? Plus, with three kids I do think it's good to give them each their own initial, so the Es and Ss are out.

    Lol. Was that meant to be punny???

    I also vote for Pierce. It has substance, whereas Hampton does make me think of hotels. And the Hamptons, which feels pretentious. And I don't like the nickname...

    Well, Ryker Vickers is a mouthful. But the bigger issue is 'he won't budge.' This should be a mutual decision. You both have to like the name, if not love it. Tell him to make a list of at least 5...

    I'd go with something daring in the middle and maybe something to lead to a nickname between first + middle.
