    Malcolm would be perfect with Quentin and Desmond. I don't think Marshall, Whitney and Mallory fit stylistically with your boys. I agree with sparrowfinch that they are very 80s.

    Miranda
    Bethany
    Melanie
    Andrea
    Alison
    Jocelyn

    Thanks so much for all the feedback. We found out we are expecting a baby girl and we are having such trouble agreeing on a name for her. Perhaps you guys could weigh in in some of the ones we are considering? Thanks for the help....

    The middle name will be Rose. We know this is a common middle but it has family meaning and fits with our boys middles.

    Alethea (my husbands favorite, but I'm not in love with it)
    Louisa (my favorite, but he's not so sure yet)
    Cecelia (I'm worried it is becoming popular, but we love the nicknames Celia & Cece)
    Delilah
    Eleanor
    Gillian
    Thalia/Talia (we both like this but pronounce it differently, 'TA-LEE-YA' and 'TALL-YA', are they 2 different names or 2 different spellings? )
    Indigo
    Adaline

    We are a bit all over the place. Thanks for any help!

    Lots of the names on your list work really well with Quentin and Desmond. These are both vintage classic names so I suggest sticking with that type of name for a baby girl. Alethea, Louisa, and Cecilia (I prefer this spelling) Rose are great and you could use any of them (Louisa is my personal favorite). While Cecilia may be popular on nameberry, it's not too popular in the general population. Cecily Rose might be a good alternative. The 2 names from your list that are not vintage classic are Gillian and Indigo so I would eliminate them. You could also move Rose or a variant of Rose to the fn position-- Rosalie, Rosemary/Rosemarie, Rosalind, Roseanne, etc. all work as vintage classic names.

    Some other possibilities:

    Quentin, Desmond, and

    Adelaide Rose
    Beatrice/Beatrix Rose
    Bettina Rose
    Camilla Rose
    Felicia/Felicity Rose
    Helena Rose
    Imogen Rose
    Juliet Rose
    Lavinia Rose
    Lucinda Rose
    Margaret Rose
    Octavia Rose
    Susannah Rose
    Sylvia Rose
    Veronica Rose

    Quentin and Desmond are fantastic!

    Alethea- Not my favorite. It sounds like lethal.
    Louisa- I love it!
    Cecelia- I prefer Cecilia, but it's fantastic all the same. Very vintage and elegant sounding to me.
    Delilah- I really love this paired with your sons' names.
    Eleanor- It's such a great name.
    Gillian- Pretty, but I'm not sure it quite fits with Quentin and Desmond.
    Thalia/Talia- I pronounce it Tall-Ya. I don't really like it though.
    Indigo- It sounds masculine to me.
    Adaline- I prefer Adeline, but I do love that.

    My favorites are Louisa, Cecelia, and Delilah.
    Here are some other ideas:

    Agatha Rose
    Edith Rose
    Martha Rose
    Bettina Rose
    Cosima Rose
    Susannah Rose
    Coralie Rose
