Livia/Lavinia are the only names that give me a similar vibe.
I agree that you should talk things over with your sister-in-law, though, if that was the name you had your heart set on. It really is...
I like most of them, but the ones I'm really drawn to:

Lucia (light) - I prefer the loo-SEE-ə pronunciation over LOO-shə
Nera (candle, light) - pronounced NEE-rah
Helen (bright shining one); or its diminutive Nell
Luz (Spanish for light)
I had heard it before in association with mythology, Lilith Fair, and as character names in various TV series/books/comics/anime, but I never really stopped and noticed it until recently...
Hm. A hard one.
It seems like you're worried over the name you choose sounding too boyish, but to me Rylinn/Rylann seem just as "masculine" as Ryan. If you're absolutely convinced that the name that honors her...
I love Catherine/Katherine (I like the history of usage for the C-spelling more and that fact that it's less popular....although I think that might be more a consequence of my aversion to the letter...
Not a fan of Kaelyn or Ashlyn, both of which seem very trendy and timestamped already. And I wish that when people were attracted to a unisex name, they would just embrace the unisex-ness of it and...
Zoey Winter (although I prefer Zoe without the y). Lovely.
Zoe(y) just doesn't seem to suit the middle spot.
Can you elaborate on what kind of naming styles you both are drawn to? Is he drawn to strong Greek/Latin type names, or ones with unisex nicknames, while you like cute/approachable vintage, etc.?

I'll start with some Debbie Downer negativity, lol: I dislike Kaylin & Shaylee Abigail.
For first name options, I like Abigail Skye and Abigail Noelle (especially if she were to be born during...
Mabel really appeals to me. I'd say it's cozier sounding than Olivia rather than plainer; if anything, Olivia's ubiquity makes it the less interesting of the two. Both have vintage charm.

I think more people would be familiar with it than not, especially with the occasional celebrity like Portia de Rossi keeping it relevant in the public consciousness. Sure it might be a little...

I prefer Claudia. It seems regal and strong. The meaning of a name can often add to its appeal, but when it (in this case "lame") isn't something necessarily positive, I think the...
On its own Eliza can definitely be considered an independent name, much more (imo) than other Elizabeth derivations like Elsa/Elsie, Lizzy, Betty/Betsy, and even Beth. Eliza having a sister with the...

I like all three, but especially Virginia and Lucinda.
If the teasing potential bothers you, I'd go with Lucinda, which gives you the spunky n' cute nn Lucy to go with the quirky yet elegant...
My thoughts exactly.
I really like Mercy as a virtue name, actually. I prefer Amity, Verity, Felicity, and Temperance, but as far as the more overt virtuous word names go (meaning words that people still frequently use...

It really is a pretty versatile name - it doesn't clash with much except names that are uber-modern/trendy, recently invented, or unestablished word names.
From your sig, I think it would pair...

Noa is beautiful. And I think I prefer Noa with no 'h' even without taking into account the masculinity/femininity of the spellings.
I don't find Matilda clunky at all - it's smart and sophisticated. And it bucks what's trendy now, which further endears it to me, while avoiding the "old lady" stigma that some people get so scared...
Margot. It's classy, spunky, smart, and a little more quirky/edgy compared to Evangeline.
Delilah is a solid name but, compared to Dahlia, it comes off as a little less serious and more flirty/lightweight, and personally I'm just usually not a big fan of that double-L...
