    It really depends, I think, on what you mean by 'British'. Is your husband Scottish, English, Welsh or Irish?

    I would check out Nameberry's lists and blog posts about British names, if I where you. Here are some links -

    Also check out the Telegraph Birth Announcements. They tend to be typically British sounding (mainly by 'upper-class' Brits, but they're the stereotype of a British name I suppose).

    Or you could use a British place name, which would really depend on where abouts your husband is from if you wanted it to be personal (calling a baby London to 'honour' the fact he's from the Scottish Highlands seems rather ridiculous to me).

    Or contact his relatives to see if there is a family tree available which you could pluck a few name ideas from. They would certainly be British and also be a very personal way to honour both him and his heritage.

    Or look down the royal family tree, even. I know you're not particuarly interested in Victoria or Elizabeth, but what about Agatha, Eleanor, Matilda, Blanche, Amelie, Henrietta, Augusta or other interesting royal names?

    Good luck! I hope you find something wonderful for your daughter's middle name!

    Thanks all! I'm thinking something more of a geographical or other English significance rather than just a popular British name. My husband is English, and he's from Yorkshire so maybe York for a middle name - though we're thinking Marlowe for a first name so not sure if Marlowe York sounds that great.

    I was also trying to think of things like Windsor, but fear that sounds WAY too pompous - especially considering his whole family is still there so it's how it will read with both US and UK friends/family. Or maybe something cute like Picadilly (might be spelling that wrong).

    So appreciate all the ideas - I've been racking my brain and really struggling!
