Suggestions needed! Feeling very uninspired.
My husband and I thought we had loosly decided on a name if this little bundle is a girl. Madeleine Pateince. Tonight however my husband pointed out to me that if you switch the first letters of Madeleine and our last name it sounds extremely inappropriate so it's no longer an option! Infact no M names are an option!
We had wanted to use another 9 letter name if we have another girl, but I've given up on that idea now. Our daughters' names are Elizabeth Hope and Annabelle Cadence.
Names we had previously considered for this baby or our other girls but are not an option anymore (already used by a family member, clash with our girls' names etc):
Names I like but not loving:
Violet (I don't love the meaning 'purple')
Lily (too popular here)
Willow (my husband hates it, plus doesn't go well with our other girls names)
I don't know why I'm loving nature names right now, it's not normally my style. I have gone through all my old posts and I don't feel inspired at all. I just feel disheartened that I have to start from the beginning again. I think I just need some suggestions to get me started.
I have a few naming rules that can make it hard:
No C, B, T or M names because if our surname.
No E or A names because I don't want siblings to share initials.
No names with 'stupid' meanings, like crooked nose etc.The 3 Princesses in my life...

Just before I saw your reply, I saw Imogen in another thread and I like it. I'm not in love with it but I think it could definitely grow on me. And I think that having a vowel beginning it ties in with Elizabeth and Annabelle, without being obviously matching.
I like Victoria but it's the name of a state here and Elizabeth is the name of a suburb so I think that would be a little weird in a sibset.
Also liking Juliet and Penelope from your suggestions.
Thank youThe 3 Princesses in my life...

Lilian but it was my closest childhood friend's mother's name, so I don't think I could bring myself to use it.
I also like Katherine. It's my cousin's name, but I have only seen her three times in the last 15 years.
I also like Rosalie but I know my husband dislikes it.
Thank you for your suggestions!The 3 Princesses in my life...
