I just want to say that I'm really impressed with everyone's name choices in general. This is not yahoo answers, that's for sure.

@mousehouse7 - lol...yeah...I thought of that song, too. Heehee. A bit out-there, maybe better as a middle. Oh me, Maeby, my husband would be going "Call Me..." all the time, as if that song doesn't get stuck in one's head enough already, LOL. You know, I really do like Jemima but it seems to be one of those "controversial" names. There's a thread around the forums here somewhere on it, I kind of decided it was too messy for me to want to deal with. Starling, kind of an invasive bird, kind of up there with Ivy lol. I had a great-great-grandfather named Quincy, I don't think I could do it on a girl. Willaby is too much like Willoughby, the Jane Austen villain, but good suggestion if it weren't for him. Odessa is too close to Odyssey for me. I DOOOO love Rosewen but again, that rotten spelling! I've tried it Roswyn, Rhoswen, Rosewen, Rosewyn, it's just always kind of awkward. Still, I'll put it back on my list. I showed hubby this latest list, the one with names I just liked and I wasn't trying to guess what he would like. He was much relieved to know that EVERYTHING I like isn't just crazy (like Nova, which he thinks is way too weird). He did totally shoot down Celandine, Truly and Chessa, BUT he rated the rest of them, which was ever so much more helpful than what we have been doing! Rose & Daisy he liked best, Gwendolyn, Scarlett & Marguerite were the next level down, Marigold, Sparrow, Opal & Starla the next level, Edelweiss and Elodie next, and the last three were crossed off.

It sounds like your husband likes very 'standard' names for girls, with a sweet overtone, and you like more evocative names. Interesting that your boy names are all what I consider 'exotic/evocative/unusual', though. Your husband must like that vibe more in a boys' name, which is the opposite of most folks! One thing I found that helped with my husband (for what it's worth) is if I explained, in detail, WHY I liked a particular name. It helped if I liked a name for many different reasons. Some times my husband would shoot down a name, but then if I explained what exactly I liked about it - the nn, the meaning, the ethnic background, some familiar/literary/place we'd been that had a tie-in, or just my vision when I said/pictured the name, etc.. he'd say, "Oh, yes, that IS a good name!" All after he'd initially told me he didn't like it. So maybe come up with your own list of names you like, and then write down, or verbally go over what all you love about them...i.e. the folk-song tie-in, how you can hear him singing it to her, etc...It might help! (and if not, feel free to ignore me!) And last but not least....if you're on number FIVE, then you get final say (at least in my book - hee hee)!
