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 rare or unusual, you can pretty much bet he'll shoot it down.
I want something rare and unusual, 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:
Gwendolyn (DH is tentative on this one)
Beatrice (tentative on this one, as well)
So... any ideas?

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
