    Thank you so much! We are using either Maxwell or Calvin for a boy

    I like Audrey, Bridget, Clara, Cecilia, Evelyn, Freya, Genevieve, Imogen, Matilda, Madeleine, Nora, Opal, Pearl, Penelope, Susanna, Tallulah, and Zara

    I also like these but can't use:
    Delilah (too close to Lila)
    Frances (male Francis and Frank's in the family)
    Harriet/Hattie (Harry and Henry's in the family, husband wouldn't go for Hattie on its own either)
    Katharine (because of Catherine)
    Mariel (a Muriel in the family)
    Rosanna (too close to Rosalie and Rosemary)
    Willa (multiple William's in the family)

    His family is absolutely huge and I don't understand it! Haha!! My family is fairly big as well, but nothing close to my husband's family (and a lot of the names in my family are not my style or are repeats of names in my husband's family)

    I like:
    Audrey
    Clara
    Charlotte
    Celia
    Eleanor
    Evelyn
    Elsa
    Felicity
    Genevieve
    Georgia (didn't like it at first but it's actually already growing on me!)
    Gwendolyn
    Laurel
    Lola
    Matilda
    Magdalene/Magdalena
    Madeleine
    Penelope
    Pearl
    Poppy
    Ruby (may be too close to Ruth?)
    Stella
    Ingrid
    Imogen
    Nora
    Ophelia
    Tabitha
    Tallulah
    Violet
    Zara

    I like these but know I can't use them:
    Ada (probably too close to Adele for my husband)
    Amelie (too close to Amelia/Emilia)
    Adelaide (that's my name! )
    Clementine (may be too close to the other "em" names but I could maybe get away with it)
    Coraline (too close to Caroline)
    Cordelia (too close to Cornelia)
    Elisabeth (too close to Eliza)
    Emma (too close to Emilia, Emily, and Emmeline)
    Francesca (too close to Francis and Frank
    Lucille/Lucia (too close to Lucy)
    Margot (probably too close to Margaret for my husband)
    Mia (too close to Amelia)
    Rose/Rosa/Rosie/Rosalind (too close to Rosalie and Rosemary)
    Harriet/Hattie (too close to Harry and Henry's in the family, husband wouldn't go for Hattie alone)
    Willow/Willa (multiple William's in the family)

    PS Maxwell and Calvin - way cool. Congrats on deciding! I like the quirky vintage feel. :-)

    Thank you so much! Maxwell and Calvin have been favorites of mine for YEARS so I was like no one in your massive family better have those names, or we'll have a problem!

    I complied a list from the suggestions and I have 37-ish names!!! Thanks so much everyone!! My husband should be home in about a half hour or so, so I'll have him take a peek at my list when he gets home

    You’ve already got a tone of great ones - I’m sorry if I repeat others suggestions. I know I repeated a few of mine when they came to mind in different places, as I might have lumped a few names together a bit oddly. I’m also keeping Maxwell and Calvin in mind with my suggestions:

    Adele - Adelaide, Alina, Delia, Delilah
    Alice/Eliza - Eloise, Heidi, Adelheid, Beth/Betsy/Betty,
    Amelia/Emilia/Emily/Emmeline - Millicent, Mildred, Melisende, Camilla, Mila, Amaya
    Aurora/Phoebe - Dawn, Lior, Luciana, Zohra, Aurelia, Roxana, Iris
    Caroline/Catherine - Charlotte, Charleen, Carla, Cora, Coral, Dorothy, Kirstin/Kristin.
    Cornelia/Lavinia/Grace - Cora, Coral, Augusta, Lydia, Hope, Felicity, Haven, Faith, Merritt, Patience, Prudence, Joy
    Flora/Florence/Lilia/Liliy/Rosalie/Rosemary - Penrose, Primrose, Mariposa, Josephine/a, Calla, Heather, Willow, Hyacinth, Ivy, Iris, Marigold, Phyllis, Violet, Juniper
    Juliette/Juliet - Julianna, Juniper, June, Juno, Junia
    Louisa/Lucy - Luciana, Lucia,
    Margaret - Margot, Daisy, Pearl, Maeve
    Mary - Merritt, Miriam, Marian, Marigold, Moira, Molly, Marilyn
    Ruth - Esther, Rebecca, Hadas, Edna, Keziah, Ksenia, Leah, Rachel, Tabitha
    Siena - Ruby, Clementine
    Sophia - Ophelia, Isabella, Olivia
