    Need names that fit our naming style...

    We currently have two sons, Quentin & Desmond, and are expecting a third (gender unknown) in the spring. If you had to classify our style I'd say we like established names that you would have heard before, but you don't hear every day.

    Names we currently are considering:
    Girl: Whitney, Mallory
    Boy: Malcolm, Marshall

    Please help us expand our list of choices. Any suggestions for more names that would fit with our current family?

    Thanks!

    Wow, what incredibly handsome names your sons have. It's easy to recommend more stylish names for boys like that: Sebastian, Julian, Miles, Edward (I would have said Edmund, but it's too close to Desmond), Hugh, Rupert, etc. For girls, it's harder. For me, Mallory and Whitney are 80s names and don't really go with your boys names. But maybe your girl style is just different from your boys! That's totally fine. If I were to recommend some girl's names to go with Desmond and Quentin I would suggest Margaret/Marguerite, Genevieve, Julia, Audrey, Cassandra, etc.
    More names like Mallory and Whitney that might go a bit better: Amanda, Christine, Caroline, Megan.
    Names I enjoy:

    Girls: Lucy, Elena, Lake, Sylvie

    Boys: Jack, Eamon, Sylvan, Theo

    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.

    Names similar to Whitney and Mallory:

    Lindsay
    Melinda
    Miranda
    Bethany
    Melanie
    Andrea
    Alison
    Jocelyn
    Cassandra
    Susannah
    Felicia
    Jacqueline
