    Team Green - Stuck on girl name

    Hi all,
    We are expecting early August, and as the title implies we are waiting till birth to find out girl or boy:) It didn't take long for us to agree upon a favorite boy name - Edmund James. However, we are stuck on finding a girls name we both are in love with. Hoping to use the middle name Olive after DH grandmother.

    We have found four names we do both love and agree on, but something holds me back from being able to commit to any one of them.

    these are our four names we both like:

    Sienna (worry about the minivan association)
    Quinn (the debates on this unisex name has me a little nervous about using it)
    Violet (doesn't sound nice with our top middle name pick Olive)
    Daphne (too scooby doo? a few people i mention the name to immediately respond with that)

    I'm a fan of names that sound pretty but are not overly popular - My favorite names (DH won't budge on) - Agnes, Alice, Charlotte, Clara, Eloise, Matilda, Ruby, Vera, Vivienne, Willa

    Any feedback on our list and/or suggestions would be soooo much appreciated! Thanks

    Sienna- I know a teenaged Sienna who has never had people say, "Like the car?" I don't think the association is strong enough OR negative.
    Quinn- Personally NMS, but I think it works well on a girl.
    Violet- I agree, I'd stay away from Violet Olive.
    Daphne- I don't immediately think of Scooby Doo, but many will.

    Here are some suggestions if you rule out all of these:

    Dahlia
    Iris
    Leila
    Patience
    Sage
    Cassia
    Amity
    Hope
    Magnolia
    Susannah
    Cordelia
    Verity
    Eliza
    Elsa
    Penelope

    Of your choices, Quinn and Daphne work best with Olive. Agnes, Eloise, or Matilda would all be wonderful, but if your hubs ain't having it, what can you do? Agnes Olive.... perfection!

    I'd keep away from another nature or color name.

    Edith Olive
    Agatha Olive
    Penelope Olive
    Maud Olive
    Rowena Olive
    Dione Olive (DI-uh-nee)
