    I like Elias (but I have a nephew named Elijah), Moses, and Constance. I like Eleanor but it's too popular here. And I like Franklin too, but it clashes with the last name :/

    For me and DH meaning was important, our daughter is named after DH's middle name cos it's a name I love, it had a significant meaning to both of us and I loved the idea of her being named after him but in a none obvious way.
    We did the name book thing, but we barely liked any of the names, and the only ones we did, we only liked. I need to really love the name otherwise I won't feel comfortable giving it to my child.


    Meaning would be important, but like I stated in the original post, there's no one we are close enough to to want to honour. My boyfriend has his father's middle name, but they haven't gotten on very well recently.

    How about:

    Boys:

    Theodore
    Ansel
    Elijah or Elias (Eli)
    Abner
    Ashby
    Arrick
    Clifford
    Eldon
    Piers

    Girls:

    Nancy
    Margo
    Clara
    Harriet
    Henrietta
    Corrine or Corinna
    Eloisa
    Idony

    Hope these aren't too out there! I'm trying to think of classic names that haven't been overdone (a la Sophia, Olivia, Ella, etc.).

    Most of them are way too popular here in England :/ I think that's what the issue is: we love vintage names, but they're all so popular and overused in England. And the ones that aren't so popular are too dated or we just don't like.
