Thread: Would love your name ideas...

Since Hubs loves Isabella, have you considered Isadora or Arabella? Or Annabelle, which is quite Southern.
Some common Irish girl names without convoluted spellings:
Bridget (from the goddess Brighid)
Liadan (nn Lia?)
Sinead - I know we're treading into Gaelic-y waters here, but you could call her Jane!
Maureen (from Mairin)
Suanach - perhaps an alternative to Susannah? It is quite Gaelic, even though it's pronounced as spelled.
Aisling - perhaps my favorite "common" Irish name, as it means "dream or vision"
One suggestion I have is a variant of Rose: There's the Gaelic Roisin (ro-sheen) and slightly anglicized Rosaleen, as well as Rosalind, Rosalie, Rosamond, and the spunky nickname Ros.
Names that hopefully fit one or more of your personal criteria:
Josephine (for all the reasons you love Josiah, plus Josephine March and the spunkiness of Jo on a girl)
Cornelia or Cordelia
Charlotte (for the South, and vintage nn Lottie)
Magdalen (clunky, quirky, and an Ma- name)
Abigail (Biblical and very similar in feel to Agatha)
Philomena OR Wilhelmina (as in Mina Harker!)
Victoria (classical, but underused)
Theodora or Dorothea
Augusta (perfectly Southern name with a lot of history)
Elmira or Almira
Hadassah (vintage Biblical name that gives me a similar vibe as Susannah)
Stella (or Stelmaria if you're feeling totally adventurous!)
Zipporah or variant Sephora (One of my favorite Bible names...too out there?)
