    3 weeks left! Finally narrowed FNs down!

    Through much deliberation, we have finally come up with a short list of names that the DH and I both like! Obviously some of my favorites were squashed, but at least there's something we agree on! I'm looking for thoughts on the list and possible middle name suggestions for them. I have a 2.5 yr old named Oliver Rex. I was hoping for a possible cool, maybe spunky, quirky MN for our new daughter (not too frilly as a whole) and I do love nature names, vintage names, and literary connections. Some of our top names are quite popular, I've grappled with it already but some of them I've loved for so long I simply can't part. I live in NJ so none of them are terribly popular in the NYC suburbs.

    Penelope- my personal favorite
    Audrey
    Esmé- is maisie a far stretch for a nickname? I have a new love for this name
    Maisie- I love it but I have trouble seeing it on a future resume.. Very nicknamy
    Arabella- DH loves this, I suggested it but it seems too frilly for me
    Daphne
    Ruby

    Would love thoughts and middle name suggestions. I know the list reflects some different styles... It's more of a compilation b/w my husband and I. Thanks berries!

    You have some great names on your list! I voted for Daphne, I think it's really beautiful, familiar yet not very popular.

    Spunky mn's, hmmm... how about

    I voted for Ruby. I think it is adorable and fits nicely with Oliver. Oliver Rex and Ruby Arabella are a cute sibset.

    I assume you've already considered this, but I love Margaret, nn Maisie, if you are looking for a more sophisticated name for Maisie.

    Daphne jumps out at me! I love it with Oliver. I also think Penelope and Audrey would work with Oliver.
