    Olive, Isla, or Eisley?

    We have narrowed our girls names down to three. DH originally wanted Emery but I can't seem to get over it being a boy name. So here they are tell me what you think? All are family names in one way or another June will be the MN.

    Olive June - This is my favorite and I think it goes great with our boy pick of August Patrick.

    Isla/Illa June - I like it just wish it had NN options

    Eisley (eyes-lee) June - This one seems to be a good mix of Emery and Isla so kinda a compromise but a little on the trendy sounding side for me.

    Definitely Isla! Olive is a name I heartily dislike. Eisely seems very trendy to me.

    What about the spelling? I commonly see it as Isla but my husbands great grandma is Illa Bell.

    I agree that Eisley sounds trendy so I would cross that one off of your list.

    I like both Olive June and Isla June. One potential issue with Olive June is that they are both word names, I personally prefer only using one word name like you did with August Patrick. Both girl names sound super sweet, good luck!

    I think Eisely will be spelled wrong for most of her life, although it is a nice compromise. I love Olive, but not with June. It sounds too wordy, and her initials would be OJ (orange juice, OJ Simpson, etc. - not the best, maybe). Isla, though, is lovely. Isla June sounds magical. Isla and August go nicely together, too.
