4 Days Left & Still No Name!
I posted a while back which helped narrow our choices but now we're 4 days out and still don't have a name combination or two to take to the hospital with us (that's agreeable to both). Maybe we're missing a combo or need help putting the 2 names together. I need some clarity!
My first choice would still be Harlow Ann because I love it (Ann is his mom's middle name and Harley as a nn is something we can both agree on). He still maintains that he does not want Harlow but would agree to just Harley. I'm feeling that Harley as a stand alone may be too gritty especially if she's a girly girl and like the idea of a unique but feminine full name like Harlow to fall back on. Gah! Also loved Lola as a nn from Harlow, but not sold on any one nn, just need to agree on full name first.
I still think that her name will be shortened, so maybe there are ideas out there that utilize any of our first name choices along with a middle name to come up with something cute/sassy but give her a solid first name.
Our first name choices include:
Rowan (this one has had some staying power tho I don't love 'Ro', mn may help)
Harper (though I do not like any shortened version of this as a nn unless you have ideas outside of Harp/Harpy)
Harlow (still on my list but trying to get over it unless you have some persuasion powers I lack)
We're not set on an mn choices but would definitely like a more feminine name to balance each of these.
Harlow is the only one I think Ann would go with for me, but other names we like include: (can also mix and match the first names for a combo?)
Harlow (DH is fine with it as mn btw)
*(any feminine ideas welcome here but not a fan of names like Katherine, Emily, etc)
Thank you thank you thank you.

I personally aren't a big fan of your choices, Harlow and Harper are both masculine last names in my opinion, but I know they are becoming popular in America. Rowan and Harley are also boys names in my opinion. I have never known girls with any of these names. (but I am from England!)
I think I like Rowan best, it is the most feminine, I think I like;
These are both pretty!!
Sorry I don't have the same name taste as you, but remember I'm just a stranger! Those may be considered girls names where you are? I'm not sure, I just know they aren't here!
Good Luck!!My Favorite Names
Verity, Geneva, Martha, Anya, Amelie, Esther
James Kennedy, Roman Thomas, Lucas Henry

I like Harlow, but I dont like Harley. While both are surnamey and a little masculine, but Harlow I can see on a girl much more than Harley which is all boy.
I like the idea that Harlow could also be Lola. Harper is meh to me, but I think I prefer it to Rowan.
Marlow (Marley, Lola)
Delaney (Laney, Lane, Dee)
Grayson (Gracie, Gray)
Playing with combos...
Rowan Claire (nn Winnie?)
Hope something clicks for you!

I like Harper and Harlow the best. I do know a few people who have recently had daughters and named them Harper, so I think it'll end up being more of a popular, trendy name.
I like Harper Anne and Harlow Anne. Or Rowan Claire, Rowan Harlow, Harlow Claire, Harlow Belle, Harper Claire, or Harper Olivia.Favorite girl names of the moment: Cecilia, Eleanor, Amelia, Violet, Charlotte, and Ramona
Favorite boy names of the moment: Henry, Micah, Jack, Elijah, Owen, and Jonah
