Hmm. I like Jacey best, but I always like ie endings, so I do like Jaycie a lot too. Jacie is nice too. Those would be my top 3 for you! I'm glad you aren't into the ee ending, it isn't my favorite....
Going off the nature and word names you like:
Sutton Foster wears Sutton so well, it makes me love it on a girl. My first thought was boy with Spencer, but there's a girl Spencer on a TV show and it's cute enough on her. I think it's fine as a...
One of my favorite mini-gags in Kimmy Schmidt was Kimmy sort of mumbling the name because she couldn't quite catch it. But it actually feels like nice, more adventurous alternative to Penelope. I...
My family has a very similar situation. My sister is named after our great-grandmother, Katherine, on our dad's side. Our cousin is named after HER grandmother, Kathryn, on her dad's side (our moms...
Usually Elisabeth, which I prefer so much over the Z spelling. But in your case, and for your reasons, Isabelle is the winner. I do agree that Isabelle doesn't seem quite as ubiquitous as Isabella,...
Beautiful name. Unless you live in an isolated area, I think you'll find that kids in her schools will have names from all cultures - so it won't stand out, and people are very used to being...
I like it, but I wouldn't change it to Malika if you are accenting the first syllable. Yeah, it's not intuitive to pronounce the"I" in Mallika with the ee sound, but even less intuitive to pronounce...
She'll thank you for not going with Cox.
I think surnames as first names are a matter of personal taste, but since this one is all but unknown on anyone BUT the actress, it's way too strong an...

I think of a little girl in the '90s - probably because when I was a little girl in the 90s I knew a few, and also because it seems like, Kardashians aside, the C- to K- swap was more common then. I...
Very usable, because of the on-trend Mar beginning (like Marley and Margo) and the o ending, like Harlow. I usually love literary references, but since I don't have strong feelings about the writer,...

Both lovely, but Celeste is so nice and soft with Harlan and Pierce.

Too close for siblings, fine for cousins.
I just listened to the song and I couldn't think of a sweeter song to name your baby after. Rain is more my style, or even Raine or Rayne, but it's a middle name so go with what you like most.

A few Bible place names:
Belen (common name in Spanish; Spanish word for Bethlehem)

1. Ariane or Arianne - gorgeous!
2. Ariadne - actually my favorite but it takes a tiny bit more guts to use
3. Ariana or Arianna - where I live, these names are super popular when you factor in...

I'm surprising myself here. I'd usually go for the literary reference - Marlowe - but I really love Perrie. I've always liked the Perry spelling, but if Perrie looks nicer to you, I think that's a...
The Vanessa I grew up with was very artistic and free-spirited, so that's how I see it. It isn't terribly dated for me, even though it peaked in the 80s-90s, because:
- it never was at the top of...
The few Cadences I know do have parents with a lower socioeconomic status, but I don't think it's trash. The real spelling also looks pretty in writing, I guess because I like longer C names like...
See my sig - both of those are very near the top of my would-use list, so I am relieved as well! I love these feminine but strong, familiar but uncommon names.
Congrats on totally nailing your criteria with name number one! I love Greer and Bronwen with Flannery for the non-frilly aspect, and Opal and Lucinda because of the Southern feel.
Bronte - I love the literary connection, and it reminds me of Bronwen, which I love. It would fit in/stand out with all of the Brynns and Braeleighs and such, but it sounds more solid than a lot of...

Congrats and hope the little one is doing well. 5/19 is my sister's birthday, so I'm partial to it. She's a Katherine who goes by Kate and Katie, all great names :)
Top picks, no order:
Cheryl Elizabeth! For some reason Jamie Cheryl flows much better than Cheryl Jamie, but I like it best with Elizabeth.
No! If the emphasis were ca-RYS, then maybe, but it's not. To me this is no different than, say Oscar and Caroline, or Nathan and Annabelle: if the syllable is accented in one name and unaccented in...
