    girls name fog- fresh inspiration needed please!

    Hi all!
    Our 4th is due in June, a sibling for Eloise, Jude and Iris. I think we have pretty much decided on Arlo for a boy but I'm suffering from baby name fatigue for a girl! (All those years of obsession and now nothing seems fresh or seems to excite me!)
    Indigo (nn indi) was a front runner but I've always though of my style as being vintage/classic and I'm starting to wonder if Indigo seems a bit fadish?!
    Other names I've loved in the past but some how just don't seem quite right are
    Celeste
    Esme
    Pearl

    As you can see quite a small list! My husband is pretty laid back and can usually be convinced (though he does hate Pearl!) So any suggestions gratefully received!
    Thank you !xxxx

    Eloise is a very feminine name and of course, Iris is a beautiful flower, so I think another feminine name would work well with those two.

    I wouldn't use Indigo given that it starts with an I, like Iris, and really is significantly more hippie-trendy than your other children's names, which I would describe as vintage. Your boys' choice, Arlo, fits perfectly.

    Celeste, Eloise and Iris is a whole lot of S sound, leaving poor Jude as the odd man out. Esme and Eloise are too close.

    Pearl really is perfect-- hits all the right notes. Same vintage style, but has its own sounds, and is monosyllabic like Jude. If your husband hates it, he hates it.

    It seems me you prefer non-frilly girls' names with an antique, vintage flavor. Ideas:

    Corinne
    Clara
    Hazel
    Margot
    Maeve
    Lenore
    Laurel
    Verity
    Flora
    Tamsin

    I like Pearl - it's "vintage" but crisp, clean, sophisticated - like the names you chose for your first three.
    PP's suggestions of Daphne and Phoebe are so gorgeous!
