Little Sister for Rooney
We have a three year old daughter named Rooney and are having a difficult time agreeing on a name for her little sister (due to arrive in a few months).
I really like Frances and Margo, but my husband doesn't think that they "fit" with Rooney. He likes Arlo, but I feel like it may be too trendy (considering the popularity of names like Marlow and Harlow).
I would love any input on the above names and would really appreciate any suggestions that you might be willing to share for a sibling name for Rooney.

Hello, welcome to Nameberry!
May I say I like Rooney a lot? It's so spunky and fun!
From your list, I adore Frances. However, I have to agree it doesn't quite fit with Rooney. Neither does Margo. But I think Arlo makes a great brother - it also has spunky, cheerful vibe and sounds stylish. I don't know any Arlos so I would not say it's trendy.

Wow. That is a very hard name to pair indeed! I agree that Frances and Margo seem mistmatched with Rooney. Arlo is quite trendy/popular right now (I know one little girl and two little boys with the name), but it does share the unisex vibe.
You could go with another Irish gender-bending surname?
Rooney & Shea
Rooney & Walsh
Rooney & Sloan
Rooney & Daley
Rooney & Ivers
Rooney & Lane
Did you get the inspiration for Rooney from Rooney Mara (who in fact was born Patricia?) If so, maybe you'd like another more invented name used on a girl:
Rooney & Veda
Rooney & Tilda
Rooney & Sigourney
Ultimately, you might just choose a name you both love (if you can find one!) and the 'matching' factor of the sibset is just that you love both names.

I like Rooney and Arlo, and I second the suggestions of Blair, Blake, Sloan, and Shea to pair with Rooney.
Others (these are Irish surnames and I feel have the same vibe as Rooney):
Rooney and Beckett
Rooney and Brogan
Rooney and Brennan
Rooney and Carey
Rooney and Cullen
Rooney and Delaney
Rooney and Fallon
Rooney and Kennedy
Rooney and Kinsella
Rooney and Kirby
Rooney and Larkin
Rooney and MacKenna
Rooney and Meegan
Rooney and Quinn
Rooney and Reilly
Rooney and Shannon
Rooney and Sheridan
They all share that unisex vibe, but some are more masculine than others.

I dislike Frances and Margo with Rooney, too. I feel like Rooney needs a fun, unique name to go with it. How about:
