    Names like Io, Noa, Ginger, etc...??

    Please please help me with my girls name list for our second child, due mid-year. Have been scoping Nameberry for a long time but need some fresh perspectives!

    Looking for any suggestions that you think we might love as much as our boy choice, Arlo. Boys are so much easier for us!!

    Not very clear on our style category, but we do love names containing an 'o' sound (ie Io, Noa, Arlo etc) and also tend to lean toward less common, strong yet feminine (not frilly) names for girls.

    (Also, this will be our last child. So how well the girls name goes with 'Arlo' does not matter, as there is likely to be no other siblings. Our eldest child's name is Maeve. So, we will just have Maeve and Arlo, OR Maeve and ....?)

    Here are some names we like, though those with * we cannot use, sadly.

    Thank you!!

    Noa*
    Io*
    Opal
    Esme
    Bess
    Lola
    Frieda
    Liore
    Poppy*
    Flora
    Elinor (nn Noor)
    Gwen
    Ginger*
    Nala
    Kit*

    I adore the name Io. It was on my long list. Here are some thoughts. Not sure if you're a nickname person, but I put some ideas about those on here as well.

    Valo - VAH-lo, new found name and love it. It means "light" in Finnish.
    Thais -- TAH-ees
    Gem -- actually know a boy with this name. Could also be Gemma nn Gem
    Briar
    Aysu -- Means moon water.
    Margot
    Wren
    Bay
    Lark
    Bliss
    Luna
    Bodhi -- Lovely meaning and awesome nn Bo
    Leonie / Leona -- nn Leo
    Fiona
    Liliosa -- nn Lilo, so intrigued by this one.
    Pearl
    Quinn
    Brynn
    Freya
    Taioma -- Tay-oh-muh nn Tayo
    Oona / Una

    Maeve is completely gorgeous! And I really love Arlo!
    My first thought was Fiona: strong 'o' sound, feminie yet non-frilly. I also think that Fiona is perfect with Maeve! Other names I love for you:
    Rose (so fresh as a first name!)
    Isla
    Nora/Eleanor
    Tessa
    Snow
    Ramona
    Clio
    Echo
    Juno
    Nola
    Best of luck!
    I'm 19 with a furbaby named Frederick

    * Beatrix * Clementine * Penelope * Seraphina *

    * Theodore * Hugo * Caspian * Arthur * Lysander *

    Eos instead of Io
    Juniper perhaps instead of Ginger or Ginervra/Genevieve?
    Cora
    Oona
    Eloise
    Hope
    Olive
    Nola as you already have Nala
    Norah
    Nova
    Snow
    Anouk
    Bonnie
    Clove/ Clover I love Clover but its unusable in the UK as its a margerine
    Violet
    Elowen
    Cerys/Carys
    Lowri
