    Tinsley?

    My sister in law is due on Halloween and they want to name her baby girl Tinsley. I don't want to flat-out tell her that I hate it and it's obviously not my baby but she did ask me if I had any suggestions. I don't wanna give her any of the names we're considering incase baby is a girl and Tinsley isn't really my style anyway. I decided to turn to you guys for some help! Any suggestions for someone who likes names like Tinsley? Before this, they wanted to name the baby Callie or Lexie. She asked for my opinion so I wanna give it to her, but I don't know what to suggest to her that she would actually like! Tinsley reminds me of tinsel.. I hope I can scour the pages for some names to run by her. Thank you!
    PREGNANT with our first!!!

    My name is Caroline, BeatrixDaisy is just a name I like!

    My favorite names:
    Emilia, Beatrix, Juliette, Chloe, Madeline, Audrey, Emerson, Alaina, Felicity, Coralie, Alessandra, Katherine, Lucy, Luna
    Holden, Noah, Nathaniel, Caleb, Cameron, Adam, Calvin, Travis, Ronan, Hudson, James, Paul, Peter, Mason, Troy

    Tinsley reminds me of the socialite, Tinsley Mortimer. Other than that it feels flimsy and insubstantial to me. Maybe Tansy or Tamsin could be alternatives? If they were considering Callie and Lexie, perhaps you could suggest Calixta? Either Callie or Lexie could work as a nickname for that.

    Or maybe Tallie as a nickname for Talia or Tallulah?

    I've seen it used repeatedly for baby girls, but I'm really, really not a fan of the -sley ending. It always reminds me of Pugsley from The Addams Family.

    What about Ainsley or Lindsay? The sounds are really similar.

    Another name I thought of was or Rosalie. She seems to like the -ee ending names.

    I'm not sure Calixta would work for someone into trendy names...

    IMO, Callie is the best from those that you mentioned. Maybe suggest Calla?

    I'd probably suggest some of these:

    Tessa
    Harper
    Piper
    Belle
    Sadie
    Alexa/Alexia
    Maisie
    Hattie
    Current favorites:
    Cora . Louisa . Lydia . Mary
