    3 syllables, end in N

    This is a strange way to go about collecting a new list, but my husband loves names that end in an -n sound, and I seem drawn to a three syllable rhythm more than a lot of the two-syllable ones.

    What I have so far is listed, more suggestions gratefully received.

    Girls
    Imogen - I love this, DH not sold, though he said "it's not the worst name out there or anything"
    Katharine - There's one by a third spelling in the family, but I love Katharine and then Catherine.
    Lillian - Love it. There's a billion and two Lily/Lilly/Lillies around though
    Vivien - I'd probably only get away with this in the middle, but I heart it.
    Rhiannon - can't use this, someone's just ruined it. But I like the concept, if it wouldn't make my husband and MIL explode with rage.
    Ceridwen - A bit much if neither of us is Welsh, isn't it? *shame*

    Boys
    Sebastian - not my favourite, but it is my husband's.
    Jonathan - I love this but a lot of people found it plain and not very nice? My husband's okay with it though.
    Finnian - Husband prefers just Finn, I don't.
    Peregrine - Husband thinks I've lost my mind.
    Cillian - Do we like it? Do we hate it? I don't know. I do know I like the rhythm.

    What ones do you like? What ones would you suggest? Obviously I don't mind silent e's, I just want an n sound.

    I also think Ceridwen would be fine for you to use, I'm Welsh & I would love to see it used!

    I also adore Imogen, Lillian and Vivien.

    I also like Cillian, Peregrine & Sebastian Idm Jonathon but I do find it a little bland in contrast to some of your other choices.

    How about:

    Evelyn (Ev-uh-lin)
