32 Weeks and NO GIRL NAME! Help!
Hubby's picks are : Atley, Hadley and Arianna
Some that I like are : Gemma, Summer, Zoey, Annabelle, Adeline
Sister's name is Isla Rae
The only name we can SOMEWHAT agree on is Atley MN Grace to make it a little more Feminine since it's traditionally a male name
Can anyone come up with a couple names that are a happy medium? Every name I throw at DH he puts down. I just want some fresh ideas to throw at him, he doesn't seem to like the old lady names, he seems to lean toward modern-ish names, but I don't like "made up" names. I can be more flexible than him but I'm still not sold on Atley. What do you think of the name Atley Grace for a girl?

I've never heard of Atley, but Atley Grace is pretty cute. I'd prefer something I little more familiar (especially with your concerns of it sounding "made-up"). Since you're the more flexible one, there's a few here in his style and lots with adaptable nicknames that could fit both of you.
Emerson nn Emme
Aria nn Ari
Addison nn Addie
Ellison nn Ellie
Madison nn Maddie
Madeline/Madeleine nn Maddie
Skyler nn Skye
Somer (sounds like Summer, but spelled modern for him)
Virginia nn Ginger
Georgia nn Georgie
Elizabeth nn Eli
Caroline/Carolina nn Carrie
Annika nn Anna
Dolores nn Lola, Lolita
Katherine nn Kit

I've never heard of Atley before, but it's okay. I'm just afraid if she says her name someone will say, "Hi Ashley" since that is a more commonly heard name.
Suggestions: (You mentioned the middle name "Grace", so I chose names that go good with that name if you decide to use it)
Gemma Grace (Would the GG initial bother you?)
Layla GraceNot expecting, just having fun collecting names!
My name is Erin. I am 23 years old and I have been a proud name nerd since I was 10.
Ladies: Juliet Elaine, Madeleine Rachel, Marie Anneliese, Linnea Carys, Maisie Rose, Emilia Noelle, Clara Felicity, Lydia ?, Elise Victoria, Evelyn
Gentlemen: Jonathan Rhys, Wesley Jude, Roman Gabriel, Evan Connor, Quentin Oliver, Dawson Cole, Jude Nathaniel, Rhys Anthony, Ciaran Matthew, Everett Jacob

In all honesty I dislike Atley Grace, I think Atley is a strange choice and teamed with Grace just looks really odd. The only name I'm actually keen on is Arianna. I think Arianna is really pretty and has a very rich wholesome Italian vibe. From your choices my favourites are Annabelle and Adeline. In all honesty I don't think Isla and Arianna works together as a sibling set. Whereas I think Annabelle & Isla sounds very pretty together, I do prefer the spelling Annabel which is far less fuss and looks more 'together' with Isla. Rae is obviously the feminine variant of Ray and feeds into your partner's taste for modern choices. You could use a middle name similar to this for Annabelle/Annabel.
