    Haha! Thank you guys so much. Mostly these are my ideas; he's just approved him. If he was naming a girl, she'd be Catherine, Johanna, Marina or Ramona. If I was naming a girl myself, she'd be Cordelia (on the list), Allegra (on the list), Guinevere, Beatrix, Rosalind or Penelope. So, some compromising has happened to get this list, as per usual, I suppose.

    The surname is Fu, if that helps narrow it down a bit. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts.
    Melissa, Mama to Oscar Leopold.

    Favorites:
    Anwen
    Cecily
    Cordelia
    Hazel
    Rosemary
    My absolute favorite of these is a tie between Anwen and Hazel. Both lovely!

    Least Favorites:
    Allegra (makes me think of the medication)
    Dahlia and Zinnia (not a huge fan of flower names in general, and these are the least attractive ones to me)
    Matilda and Ramona (I know a lot of people like these, but they just seem incredibly stuffy to me)

    Name I think sounds best with Oscar: definitely Hazel. I really like Hazel Catherine or Hazel Rosalind!

    Allegra - this is pretty but it's very allergy medicine to me, especially absent an Italian surname.
    Anwen - I kind of like it, but it's very nasally, and I think it would match best with a Welsh surname and/or sibling name.
    Cecily - I love Cecily! The one Cecily I've ever known had a surname similar to yours, and I thought it had such good flow! Love it with Oscar too!
    Cordelia - I find this too stuffy personally, but I know it gets a lot of love. Great nicknames, goes well with Oscar and your surname.
    Dahlia - I'm quite fond of Dahlia and it goes well with Oscar and your surname
    Hazel - I have similar feelings to this as for Dahlia. It has a slightly more spunky, less fancy feel than a lot of your list, make sure you like it.
    Iris - ditto Iris. Iris and Hazel are very similar in feel to me. I like Hazel but do prefer Iris.
    Isadora - I have similar feelings for this as to Cordelia. I like Isadora more.
    Matilda - Oscar and Matilda are so cute together! Quite l like this as a name and for you.
    Ramona - ditto Matilda!
    Rosemary - Of all your plant-based names, I probably like Rosemary the most for you, close with Dahlia though.
    Susanna - Similar feelings to Matilda and Ramona, my only concern might be Sue Fu?
    Zinnia - I really like the name Zinnia but am not quite as fond of it with Oscar and your surname for some reason. It does still work OK though.

    Best wishes!

    My top 3:

    Dahlia -- Dolly is adorable for a nickname, and Dahlia is beautiful and works well for all ages.
    Iris -- I just love the flower and it's old fashioned without being stuffy
    Anwen -- It's unusual but not hard to pronounce with Annie being familiar as a nickname.
