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.
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*
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 think you can use Ceridwen!!!! It's so gorgeous... Oh, and I like all the names you listed. My favourites are Rhiannon, Ceridwen and Vivien for the girls, and Sebastian, Peregrine and Cillian for the boys, but they're all great!
I'll be back with boys.

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.
