    Opal, Iris?

    Hello, I have 2 boys, Atticus and Dexter and expecting a girl. I haven't had to think of girl names before, they are hard! Seems all the good ones are now very popular. Here are my favorites, I'd love to hear thoughts and insight!
    Opal: I love it, my husband despises it.
    Iris: I like a lot, my husband doesn't really like it.
    Evangeline: I always liked, but maybe a little frilly and I don't care for nn Eva or Angie.
    Ingrid: I like, maybe a little blah.
    Tuesday: My husband likes.
    Thanks!

    I ADORE both Opal and Iris! Two of my long-standing favourites.
    I think Ingrid is nice, and Evangeline is fine... I don't care for Tuesday though, sorry.

    I'm with your husband on this. Opal and Iris are kind of bland and antiqued, though if I had to pick I'd go with Iris. Evangeline and Ingrid are nice though, and I think you could easily avoid Eva and Angie if you wanted to. Tuesday is easily my favorite of the set though and goes well with your sons names. A bit quirky and offbeat, but not too odd.
