I agree with everyone that the first syllable is problematic and could lead to teasing. I also see it as masculine. There was a sort of famous Australian international relations professor called...
Hmm these are only vaguely husband approved and are subject to much change!
Eliza Holiday or Sybilla Eve

My favourite is Esther, closely followed by Edith! I think Bonnie and Sally are perfectly useable, just not to my taste. Phyllis and Lois seem very dated and difficult to pull off - plus their sounds...

I'm torn between Cora Elizabeth and Lorelei Grace!

I voted for Edith Maeve, but also love the Maeve combo's and Beatrix Joy! I do find Evelyn a bit matchy with Lyndsey - and also find Evelyn pretty trendy! It's top 100 where I am, and part of the Eve...

I don't know if I'm able to come up with anything new! I second Lorelai, Elowen, Elodie, Eloisa and Magnolia for Lola - gorgeous! And with a sister named Esme, Mirabelle, Mabel, Marigold or Mariel!
I'm swooning - two of my favourite names!! If I could only convince my husband how lovely they are! I like both Mirabel & Mirabelle - I used to prefer the streamlined version but recently the -belle...
I only know one Bailey - and it's a dog!
I recently met my first Hazel - an adorable 18 month year old. She was seriously so cute and the name really grew on me! While I think the name is getting trendy (Emily Blunt and John Krasinski...

I've never met a Declan! I know two men named Miles - both in their twenties. I'm in Australia, East Coast

Hmm how about Rafferty with Maeve? You also can't go wrong with August. Wishing you all the best!
I vote for Alessandra! I was born in the 80's and went to school with 7 Alexandra's all nn'ed Alex, so it feels a little dated and tired to me. But I do appreciate that it's a classic. I love the...

I'm 28 and have never actually heard the song - but I still think of it immediately! I can imagine that my family would sing it at us if we used the name. But it probably is fading out
I've only had one naming dream - we had a little boy named Abraham nn Bram. I'd never considered it before and now it's on my list! (although I prefer Abram!). I told my husband and he thought it was...

This is tricky!
Votes for Camille, Camilla and Romilly!
I'm in Australia and Amelia is crazy popular! Millicent is sweet but feels very old fashioned compared to the others.
Definitely Miles! Miles Walden would be lovely!

I have a soft spot for Carey on it's own! It probably won't get the nameberry love but I just think it's so sweet sounding :)
Otherwise I vote for Elodie or Quinn. How about Aquinnah?

I second the suggestions of Luca and Eli! Or how about:
I think Matilda is gorgeous! Her sounds are a little clunky or quirky, which may be contributing to your Mum's reaction (along with the generational differences!). But it's a fun and easy name to say...

I think Sylvia works well with your sibset :) It doesn't sound too similar to Zelda, and they both have a lovely old fashioned charm. To be a pernickety berry, it doesn't quite have the same...
I don't particularly like my name but I'd never consider changing it. My parents both loved it and it's meaningful for that reason, particularly as my father passed away relatively young and I miss...
Ooh I LOVE your children's names! If my husband was a little more compliant (haha), I could see us having a little Adeline and Theodore in the future. I've been trying to sell Adeline to him for...
I voted for Nora - Classic and fresh! Norma and Noreen read old lady to me, and Nadine and Nadia seem 80's!
