Hope everything works out with the adoption! I know firsthand how exciting and nerve racking this time is! Hopefully, we can come up with something for them.

You know, I think this is really hard because the way they describe their style and the names they like are almost completely at odds!
"Mom likes proper, elegant, old fashioned, English/dutchess names" -- but the specific names she likes are Audrey, Michelle, Carmen, Mackenna, Mila, Halle, Macy. These names may have their strong points, but I think Audrey is the only one that could even vaguely be called proper, elegant, old-fashioned, OR English/duchess!!!!
Dad, meanwhile, who professes to prefer familiar all-American girl names actually has kind of quirky taste: Beth, Bailey, Sadie, Teagan, Audrey.
Beth may qualify....or again, Audrey. Guess it's easy to see why Audrey is the only name they can agree on!
So....a name that's proper and elegant but not snooty (hmmmm), that sounds all-American but might also be fit for an English duchess, that's familiar but also a little bit different!!! They don't need an expert, they need a wizard!
OK, I'm kidding, kind of. This is exactly why names like Kate and Laura and Emma are so popular -- they cover so many bases and satisfy so many seemingly contradictory requirements at once.
People have thrown out a lot of good suggestions. Now I think we need reactions from the namers....or maybe they are just going to stick with Audrey!Pam Satran
