    My girl's list is boring!

    I need something new and adventurous. My husband and I will begin TTC at the end of this year, and I am trying to dust off my list.

    Our list currently consists of two types of names 1) Family names and 2) Names DH likes

    I don't feel any of my own influences on our list. All of the family names are from DH's side (because I don't like using family names), and all of the names that aren't family names are fine, just really bland. He is very traditional when it comes to girl names, and if the name sounds exotic or rare, you can pretty much bet he'll shoot it down.

    I want something rare and exotic, but also wearable. I want something that will sound good with our current list (since some of the names will most likely be middle names or sibling names). Please, some of you more adventurous berries, help me come up with some sparkly names. Something literary or historical, but with flair. Something foreign, perhaps, but that won't scare our meddling southern family.

    Here's our current list:
    Lily
    Grace
    Mary
    Alice
    Clara
    Vivian
    Hazel
    Eliza
    Jane
    Vera
    Gwendolyn (DH is tentative on this one)
    Helena
    Greta
    Matilda
    Beatrice (tentative on this one, as well)
    Ellen
    Frances
    Susan

    So... any ideas?

    I like Matilda with the nickname Tilly.
    Lily and Grace are nice but very common! I dont mind Frances with the nn Frankie either!

    Roxanne/Roxana -has possibility of cute, spunky nickname Roxy
    Maeve -more refreshing than Mary, but not too out there
    Beatrix -Slight change from Beatrice but definitely adds some flair without going crazy, plus has some literary sentiment with Beatrix Potter
    Violet -less common alternative to Lily
    Sloane -uncommon, but not completely unheard of or unusable
    Winter -has the same feel of your other names, but slightly less popular
    Isadora -close to the more popular Isabel, but definitely more exotic
    Cora -less common alternative to Clara
    Nora/Norah -very usable but less common
    Cleo -reminiscent of Cleopatra, but definitely way more usable
    Kaya/Kaia/Caia -spunky and less common than the popular Maya, but just as charming and usable
    Hope this helps!
    Caroline - 18 - fascinated by names
    Isabel Charlotte ~ Briella Daisy ~ Aria Josephine ~ Livia Sloane ~ Selena Bryn
    Henry Jonah ~ Ivan Gilbert ~ Theodore James ~ Maxwell Griffin ~ Noel Declan
