He's Driving Me Crazy!
My husband & I are welcoming our first child together and he's absolutely driving me up a wall!! We've (thankfully) agreed on two boy name choices but he's being so stubborn about girl names. I have so many names I like/love and we can't use any of them! He doesn't want to use a name that is already used in the family (which is a lot, since his family is HUGE and mine is of decent size). My husband hasn't gone out of his way to give any suggestions, either.
The list I am going to post is of names I really like but cannot use because they are used already. From those names, can you please give me a name or two that I may like? (preferably nothing too close in look or sound to the ones on the list)
(like I said...a HUGE family, that's not even all of the names. I might be able to use one of these as a middle name though!)

I know exactly how you feel. My SO is the exact same way, shooting down all the names I like while never suggesting any. It's infuriating, isn't it? At least I don't have a little one on the way yet or I'm sure I'd be more upset about it. Anyway, yes, that is quite the list you have there...
Maybe you'll like:
Sorry if any of these are too close to some you've already listed, I didn't double check each one!

Don't worry about names being too close, that's my job (or my husband's job) to determine what is too close; I just wanted to mention that so all the names weren't variants of the names
I like Lydia, Daisy, Violet, Madeline (but not sold because of pronunciations/spelling issues), Eleanor, Ruby (may be too close to Ruth?), Charlotte, Tallulah, and Stella!
I also like Louise, Rose, and Victoria but can't use them because Louise is too close to Louisa, Rose is too close to Rosalie/Rosemary, and there is a male Victor so Victoria would be too close

Aw, sorry husband is being a bother about girl names! We are pretty good at this on NB, so hopefully you both find something you love! Do you mind sharing your boy names so I can get some idea of what your husband agrees to?
You definitely have a classic, vintage style, fairly feminine. Here are some ideas you guys might be able to agree on (fingers crossed!):

Those are all lovely names, it's a shame you can't use them! I'm thankful for a small-ish family Here are a few ideas based on the names you have given (sorry, some are close to the names you have given but I just love them and you may do too!)...
Others to consider
Just a few to choose from there!! Good luckNora ~ Alice ~ Esmé ~ Elise ~ Lucy ~ Fiona ~ Grace ~ Rose ~ Vivienne ~ Evelyn ~ Genevieve
