    Mary is a classic that totally transcends religion. No more religious than John or Elizabeth are, and it has lots of interesting namesakes (Shelley, Woolstonecraft, Blair, Lincoln).

    People have already given you so many wonderful suggestions, so I'll just go with more general advice: read, read a lot, especially good books! I strongly recommend Stephen King's "On Writing"...

    I think Philip, nickname Pip, is lovely. What about Filippa or Philippine (Pippa, Pippy) instead of Philippa?

    I think using a Ph- name would the best way to keep the tradition.

    Cecily, by far. Such a lovely, underused, unexpected classic.

    Cecelia is an ugly misspelling of the nice, but a little bland Cecilia.

    Since this is a novel maybe you could do a little play with words. My first thought was Sunday and Dominic (whose Spanish form is Domingo, which means Sunday in Spanish). Or something use something...

    I don't think anyone can claim ownership of family names, be it first or middle. If you loved "Granny Mary" I don't see why you should not be allowed to name your baby after her just because your...

    Hermione Rose is gorgeous! Much more interesting than her other ideas (although all her names are lovely). She could also use Hemma or Hemmie as nicknames (similar to Emma and Gemma).

    I guess my answer would depend on how you are pronouncing the names. I prefer any pronunciation of Elena to Katerina as [kat-rina]. However I prefer [ka-teh-rina] to [el-ena] and [e-leh-na]. I can't...

    I think if your child is actually Irish it's better to leave Rowan for a boy. I think it's fine on a girl (being a nature name and all) but if I met a subset of Liam, Fionn, Bradyen, and Rowan I...

    Gerhardt is really cool! I love that it honours your husband's father. Gerdy and Gee are logical and fun.
    Other ideas: Gart, Ged, Geddy or Getty. I think GH is a little clunky, different initials -...

    I get your worries about trendiness. Declan entered the Top 1000 in the 2000s and quickly climbed into the Top 100. That's usually a recipe for being dated in a couple of years.

    HOWEVER. Even...

    Bryony. I prefer word names spelt like the actual word (e.g. Lily and Scarlet, not Lilly and Scarlett). Briony has the connection to Atonement, though I'm not sure the character is a great namesake.
