    For girls, there's always the state flowers/birds/trees:
    Laurel (Connecticut)
    Lilac (New Hampshire)
    Violet (Rhode Island) (Hey Rhoda for Rhode Island as well)
    Clover (Vermont)
    Robin (Robyn) (Connecticut)
    Maple (Rhode Island/Vermont)

    For boys:
    Finch (New Hampshire)
    Oak (Connecticut)
    Pine (Maine)
    Elm (Massachusetts)
    Birch (New Hampshire)

    Other place names around there are Candia, Hampton, Fitzwilliam, Conway, Thornton, and I've always fancied Kittery for a girl.
    You could also go the history route and do something with the signers of the Declaration of Independence (John Adams, Josiah Bartlett) or the presidents from the region (John Adams again; Franklin Pierce, I think), but that's all I have time for
    Proud author of Kissimmee, Orlando, Mary, Adam, Mississippi, Micah, Georgette, Evelyn, Diane, Millicent, Maybeline, Prudence and so many many more

    Yes! One of the things about New England names is how many of them are trees and plants and places. Especially the male names. Elm is gorgeous and so are Birch, Pine, and Oak. Don't know if spruces grow in NE, but Spruce is a lovely name too.

    Problematic as a first name, but I don't think as a middle name. People have all kinds of middles!
