Baby Girl #3
I have two daughters and am expecting a third. I have Elliot Jo and Foster Helen (middle names are my grandmas name and my husbands grandmas name). I realize surnames/boy names are not loved by everyone on little girls. Right now, I'm loving the name Hartley for #3. What do you think? Does it "fit"? Any other suggestions? (Not interested in super trendy names like Addison, Emerson, Peyton, etc.) Thanks!

With Elliot Jo and Foster Helen, Hartley works, but I just feel like you started out with such above-the-curve names (I'm not sure when your Elliot was born, but it's blowing up for girls just now, and Foster is way cool on any gender!), and -ley names are a dime a dozen. I'm not saying that to slight your choice in the least - just throwing that out there.
In Hartley's place, I would suggest the equally playful and accessible, but decidedly surname-chic, Halsey. Easy to pronounce: [HALL-szee].
That's my top pick for you, but I'd also suggest Tallis, Carden, Ashlan, or Sutton.
