Need naming help
So I'm due on 7-29 and we don't know gender. My husband says I have too many qualifications for names and that's why its difficult. Both of our boys are named after family members so I want to continue this tradition. My first is Riehle (pronounced Riley but its my mother's maiden name) Clinton and my second is Augustyn Patrick. I had no idea how popular Riley was or I probably wouldn't have chosen to use it for a first name. I don't like overly popular names.
I somehow want to name the baby after my mom and sister so the names are Kathleen and Emily - both way too popular for me to use just as they are and I'm having trouble finding male versions that work well. We have also tried to combine the names but I'm struggling with that too. My husband says he's given up and he will go with whatever I pick
I know some people on this site like a good challenge so hopefully someone can help me come up with something!!! THANKS!

I agree on Emmeline, if you pronounce it Emma-leen. Sometimes it's pronounced Emma-Line like like a "line in the sand," but that works too.
Also for consideration...
On Kathleen...on the popularity charts for last year it ranked #667, so I would hardly call it popular. It's a version of Caitlin, but any spelling of that is going to take you well into the popular zone.
You could go off the meaning, "pure," and on that note you have your choice of a lot of things from Agnes to Zakia. Check out the Super Search results here : http://nameberry.com/search/?gender=...&search=search
