I have a challenge...
So my boyfriend and I sat down today and starting really discussing our differences in style. Turns out, his preferences are way different from what I thought. He really dislikes the tomboyish names that I've grown to adore (Goodbye Rory, Hayden, Charlee...)
So I've got a certain criteria for names, and it's kind of difficult, but I know that if anyone can help me with options we can both agree on, you Berries can. Here we go:
-No P names
-Mostly no unisex names. He dislikes girl names that he feels lean towards the masculine side. HOWEVER, if you think a unisex name reads more female, then feel free to suggest it. Like, he likes Leighton because he knows a girl Leighton so that one is still a go.
-No "Belle" names. He said, and I quote "They sound like trashy princesses." Harsh, right?
-I guess what he likes if I had to sum it up: recognizably feminine, but not too frilly, and easy to pronounce.
Names that he actually likes/ Combos we agree on:
Emaline Reese or Emalyn Reese
Thank you guys so much in advance for the help!

In your/his rules, there are a lot of "no" this or "no" that. What is a "yes"?
How do you feel about popularity?
Thea (Thee-uh or Tay-a)
Beatrice Flora Jane, Clara Felicity Kate, Rosalie Linnea Tess, Alexa Coralie Eve, Emmeline Alaska Sophie,
Charlie Jay, Gideon Bruce, Henry Liam
Also searching for ways to include:
Adeline, Avalon, Eliza, Greta, Imogen, Isla, Leora, & Winnie.
Asher, Caleb, Edwin, Felix, Grant, Hugo, Lachlan, Ronan, Rhett, & Wyatt.

@waverly123 Hmm. That's a problem because I haven't had many true "yeses" I say yes to a ton of names, he says no to a lot. So we haven't really found what kind of style or name works for us in general. BUT for me, yeses are very spunky, but not totally off the wall.
I like Charlotte, Eleanor, Aria, and Zoe from your list. I'm gonna write them down so that I can remember them for him later.
