    Most names that are recognizable and also short enough to not encourage nicknames are probably going to be simple and thus a bit plain. The only one I can think of is Fern.

    Other more recognizable nature names are Heather, Holly, Fawn, Olive, Willow, Amber -- all of which aren't very fresh and exciting, but still nice in their way.

    More great suggestions! Thank you! I hate having to nix the ones like Ariana, Layla, and Viola that end with that pesky "uh" sound - it just sounds too singsongy with our last name.

    I love love love the name Maeve, and my husband does too, but there's someone we know who just named her newborn daughter that. Sad face.

    Esme and Eloise are my favorites from the two posts above - names that will take some serious convincing on my part to bring my better half on board...

    Thanks again for the help.
