    Help me find a few more possibilities

    Ok, to set the stage, my husband and I have very different ways of deciding on things. I must carefully consider every single choice out there before I can decide, whereas he will pick the first option that he comes across that he likes and become attached to that. Therefore, we've decided it would be best for me to come up with a list of the names I like first before running any by him, and then hopefully one of those names will be one that he likes.

    The problem is that there are only two names I'm really in love with, and I'm afraid he might not like either.

    My naming preferences are:
    • Not too popular (I'm a Jennifer)
    • No last names
    • No unisex names
    • Nothing made up in the last 50 years or so (i.e. must be a "real name")
    • Relatively easy to pronounce (no difficult Gaelic spellings)
    • Only one commonly-used pronunciation
    • Only one commonly-used spelling


    His naming preferences are:
    • No unisex names (his is, and he hates that people assume he's a woman from his name)
    • "Normal" (i.e. a name people are generally familiar with)
    • Easy to spell
    • Easy to pronounce
    • No "stripper" names (unfortunately his definition of this is very broad)


    I'm in love with:

    Aurora (possible middle name Beth)
    Deirdre (possible middle name Violet, Rose, or Beth)

    I'm fond of:

    April (possible middle name Aurora)
    Rose
    Rosalind
    Bronwen

    Other names I've considered but am not in love with:

    Autumn
    Beatrix
    Bethany
    Bridget
    Claire
    Gwendolen
    Rhonwen

    I really like but would probably only use as a middle name:

    Meredith
    Violet

    Based on all this, does anyone have suggestions that I may have missed that you think I would like? I would really like to find a couple more names I can love so there's a better chance my husband will agree to one of them!

    I love Aurora Beth! That sounds so lovely. Not very sure of Deirdre, to be honest, how it's spelled is just lackluster and slightly confusing.

    Perhaps Amelia, Audrey, Cassandra, Guinevere, Lucy, Maeve, Natalie, Penelope, Ruth, Valerie, Vanessa or Vivian would fit. Good luck!
