    I like the names he likes, and I think that all of them would go well with your children's names, though I do think that the boys' names, Elliot and Sebastian, though lovely, are a little bit boring next to Delmer and June. I can see why you're having some trouble getting excited about them. I especially like Zinnia.

    I love your list as well! Would Elinora with the nickname Nora work? I definitely like your boys' names better than his. I would be so thrilled to see Alva on a little boy.

    Well, let's just see if you like any of the name variants of those that your husband has fallen for.

    Coraline: Cora, Cordelia, Aurelia, Alina, Coralie
    Zinnia: Zena, Xena, Xanthe, Inna, Io, Zia
    Nora: Norma, Honora, Annora, Nori, Noor, Nuria

    Elliot: Leo, Eli, Elio, Leon, Ellis
    Sebastian: Christian, Soren, Salem

    You two have just got to compromise on a name you both love. Find a variant that you're a fan of, or look for a new name altogether. You'll find the perfect name, I promise.

    The fact that he likes Zinnia seems hopeful to me

    You might ask him if it is because of the Z sound or the -a ending or if he likes floral names.

    Because floral names abound!

    Well I adore both Elliot and Sebastian so I guess I'm sort of on your husband's side with the boy names! However I do LOVE Thaddeus from your list...my DH never went for it but maybe yours can be convinced!

    I also adore Zinnia and Nora (and I like the idea of naming her Eleanor but calling her Nora). If you aren't crazy about Zinnia what about Zelda?
