    Names that remind you of folk music.

    I'm expecting baby girl #2 in October and I am struggling with names probably worse than I was when I was expecting Willa. I feel like her name is something I could easily see on a folk singer and it does kind of bring me back to that genre of music which I absolutely love. Lately I've been listening to a lot of folk rock particularly Mumford & Sons and started to think of names that could go with Willa that have that folksy vibe to them. This is how desperate I am to have this baby named before she is born. Willa was literally named in the operating room and I don't want a repeat of that. The name Arla pops out at me as sort of a female version of the name Arlo as in Arlo Guthrie.
    Mama to Willa and Lakelin!

    The two routes I see with this are nature names and names of actual folk singers.

    Joan
    Janis
    Marie
    Dylan
    Bobby
    Indigo
    Reverie
    Rivers
    Denver


    Maybe a bird name like Sparrow, Lark, Birdie or Wren?
    Beatrix - Fleur - Minnow - Zelda - Fern - Winifred - Poet

    Wolfgang - Atlas - Huck - Abraham - Ernest - Ulysses - Fox - Alasdair

    Hmm, these are names that seem folksy to me, but don't necessarily have any connection to specific folk artists or songs:

    Clementine
    Meg
    Delia
    Hazel
    Susannah
    Rae
    Daphne

    Hope some of these help - even just to get your inspiration going!

    Willa and Arla are gorgeous!!!

    Willa & Bonnie
    Willa & Emmylou
    Willa & Joni
    Willa & Lief (maybe too out there)
    Willa & Mary
    Willa & Sylvia

    ..may also work. Sylvia is probably my favourite out of these. Sylvie would also be cute.

    Dylan might make a cute folk music reference as a middle name.
