    36 wks... DH & I can't agree on a girl's name... HELP!!

    I'm 36 wks and DH and I can't agree on a girl's name!! Boys names are no problem. Our son's name is Owen Seth, and if this one's a boy, will most likely be Liam Thade or Ezra Thade (to get an idea of names we like). My husband's, mine, and son's first names all have 2 syllables and second names are 1. Not stuck on that for this baby, but I am leaning towards that.

    Girls names I like:
    Arden (my fave right now... if it was up to me & we had a girl, she'd probably be Arden Kate)
    Kate
    Mae (mn)
    Brynn mn)
    Callie (have a niece Kaylee... so not sure I can use this, but I love it)
    Norah
    Addie
    Georgia
    Gemma
    Maggie
    Lorelei?

    Girls names DH likes:
    Cleopatra (what?!?)
    Jubilee
    Maggie
    Kate
    Mae (mn)
    Mia (MEE-ah)
    Dahlia
    Rae
    Abby
    Addison
    Ella (doesn't work w/last name)

    If it helps, last name is 3 syllables and starts "ee-LIE". Which sadly rules out a bunch of E or L sounding names we like.

    I love classic, but original names. I don't like unusual spellings or names that are too unisex. I also don't want a name that will be shortened into a nickname.

    ANY help/suggestions would be SO appreciated!!

    I love Norah, Georgia, Kate, Gemma and Mae. I see you both like Kate so maybe Katlyn or Katharine? It's a beautiful name and flows well with almost every last name. You can nickname her Kate but also I can see Kate used on its own. Mae would make a nice middle name if you last name is long.
    Some classic suggestions:
    Natalie
    Juliet
    Juliana
    Olive
    Josephine
    Clementine
    Jemima
    Lorraine
    Theodora/Dorothy
    Camilla
    Henrietta
    I would avoid Arden, Maggie, Addie, Mia, Abby and Addison b/c they are either less timeless or too nickname-y in comparison(your other names are lovely). Good luck!

    Arden - I like this one a lot. Though I personally prefer Adair, and you could use nn Addie too!
    Callie (have a niece Kaylee... so not sure I can use this, but I love it)
    Norah - pretty, I like it with Owen
    Gemma - I like this with Owen. Gemma Kate would be very cute.

    Jubilee - I agree that it's a bit weird, what about Jovi? or Juno?
    Maggie - what about Magnolia or Marigold with nn Maggie or Marnie?
    Dahlia - what about Dorah, kind of meeting in the middle between Norah and Dahlia
    Rae - what about Raina?
    Abby - cute and I like it with Owen


    Others:
    Adair
    Dorah
    Clara
    Coral
    Farrah
    Olivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve
