Husband vetoed favorite girl name! Looking for new suggestions
Hello berries! Recently I went over my list of girl names with my DH and he vetoed my favorite girl name Rosalie. This has been a hard list to make due to having to get rid of names off my list, names I'm really sad to let go of. Our orginal favorite that we both agreed on and absolutely loved was Liliana nn Lily. Cannot use this name just yet due to my husband's ex named her 3rd daughter Liliah. So that means my two step daughters already have a baby sister named Lily. My step daughters are Cheree Valentina and Zoe Eliana (hubby named Zoe himself). Sophia was my DH's new favorite after we got over Lily, but recently his cousin had a Sophia and it wouldn't be a problem but his cousin is a single mommy and therefore Sophia shares the same last name as us. Can't have two Sophia Lopez's in the family but we love Sophia enough that maybe we can still use it but especially love for a middle name. Hailey and Izabelle are out as well due to my husband's cousin who I share the same name with already has girls with these names, "Which Hailey? Jessica's Hailey? Which Jessica?" Bad enough my DH is Joseph III we dont want even more confusion. With all this said, it is so hard to come up with names I love that hubby can agree on that aren't automatically not usable.
Names DH vetoed: Arabella, Chloe, Ella, Juliette, Penelope, Rosalie, Seraphina, Viviana, and Zaylee.
Here are the names left on my list: Annabelle, Aria, Audrey, Evangelina, Evelyn, Kaylee and Olivia.
Any suggeations/opinions welcome! I do apologize for the novel, and tia!

I like Audrey and Annabelle best from your remaining list. I must know at least a dozen Olivia's all under the age of 6 in my neighborhood. Ugh! So sick of that name.
How does he feel about Rose, instead of Rosalie? Maybe he's not a fan of the Twilight reference, or thinks it sounds too flimsy or girlie because of the "-lie" sound ending?
Vivian/Vivienne (since he doesn't like Viviana - maybe something a little more mainstream will appeal to him.)
Mila/MiaGirls - Abigail, Georgianna, Anne, Charlotte, Claire, Genevieve, Annette, Eliza, Felicity, Hannah, Noelle, Eugenie, Grace, Phoebe, Philippa, Cecilia, Cecily, Elizabeth, Hollis, Piper, Lorelei, Vivienne, Paige, Carolina, Isobel, Lucy, Molly, Georgia, Victoria, Naomi
Boys - Bobby Sparklefritz until H can offer suggestions. Ones I like: Rory, Owen, Tyler, Ian, Elliot, Alexander, Ephraim, Levi, Jacob, Reid, Avery, Nathan, Miles, Jasper, Spencer, Toby, Dean, Philip

Like the suggestions of Mirabelle/Mirabella! A name I haven't seen on Nameberry until now! Genevieve is another great suggestion, just what would be a good nickname besides the obvious Gen? My SIL is a Jennifer and goes by Jen. Suggestions of Piper, Phoebe, Molly, Sara, Layla, Maddie, all pet names or rhyme with our pets (Malie and Lola). Alex, Marissa, Veronica, Amelia, Katherine, Mia, Nora all first name family names but good potential for middle names :-) Katherine is my MIL's name her mn is Elizabeth which my husband does like for a mn. Question about Rosalie being a Twilight name, shhh! My DH has no clue about that! Lol! I loved the name before Twilight and I think as long as I dont pair Rosalie with any other Twilight names it is usable. I just love the way it sounds with Cheree and Zoe. Unfortunately my DH doesn't want the nn Rosie because it reminds him of Rosie O'Donnell.. Also said Rosa is a possible mn but I feel like it's just prettier with the french flair. I think having heard opinions on my remaining list Annabelle Aria and Olivia are all gorgeous names, I just want to seach every option. Just something about girl names.. boy name has been picked out for 2 years now, even possible future brothers.. but Girl names seems like every year that passes since we decided it was time to add to our family, 3-4 babies are born into our family/close friends have babies and then I'm crossing names off my list. Lol! But it is half the fun finding THE name :-)
