    Close but no cigar... help me find new names from the ones that are not quite right.

    Berries, you have been SO helpful in helping me add names to our growing list for Baby #2. After reviewing them with my husband, we have a lot of vetoes. He is now saying "less French", and unfortunately that eliminated some of your beautiful suggestions from my previous post! So I thought that showing you all our "close but no cigar" list may help us come up with more options.

    Names we had to cross off because friends chose for their baby:
    Eloise
    Delilah
    Henriette/Hattie

    Names I love, but husband deems "too French":
    Elodie
    Amity
    Amelie
    Anais
    Delphine
    Sylvie
    Leonie
    Ottoline/Ottilie
    ... and almost all the other French names not used in the US

    Names that don't fit with our DD Vivienne:
    Violet
    Vera
    Verity
    Imogen (rhymes)
    Lucienne
    Oceane

    Names that don't work with the "el" sound in our last name:
    Arrabelle
    Annabelle
    Mirabelle

    J names (my husband & I both have them):
    Juliette/Juliet

    Names we vetoed because we don't care for the nn's:
    Genevieve
    Seraphina
    Adeline
    Annette
    Magnolia
    Susannah
    Lorelei
    Antoinette

    Names husband likes but I vetoed:
    Charlotte
    Eleanor
    Lillian
    Ruby
    Gwendolyn/Guinevere
    Drew
    Roxanne

    Names I like, but husband vetoed:
    Tallulah
    Lucinda
    Alice
    Florence
    Matilda
    Paloma
    Allegra
    Cordelia

    Currently, we agree on:
    Daphne
    Fiona
    Odette/Colette/Cosette
    Theodora/Dorothea/Isadora
    Bianca
    Beatrice
    Margot
    Ophelia
    Leontine/Leonie/Leonora


    What say you berries? Any gems to add to our list, so I can run more by him?
    momma to Vivienne Grey


    {currently considering}

    Colette Isadora Fiona Daphne Margot Bianca Ophelia Francesca Theodora Arabelle Leonora Louisa

    Sebastian Felix Hugo Rex Henry Frederick Abraham Everett Gus

    Okay with some thought I came up with these:

    Romilly
    Lucia
    Rosalind
    Zoya
    Meredith
    Viveka (I realize that it is quite similar to Vivienne, but do you like its end sound? If so I could find more names like it).
    Dahlia
    Mireya
    Annora

    Hope that helps!

    With Vivienne, I like Theodora and Leonora the best. Theodora Margot is pretty.
    I like simple yet versatile names that work well for the athlete, the comic, the genius, and the judge.
