need a girl's name with the second syllable "L" Help!!
We are expecting our fourth child and third daughter. All of our kids have an "L" as the second syllables in their names. We did this completely unaware we were doing it. Now feel that maybe we should stick to it. Our other children's names are Oliver, Ellery & Marlowe. IF you have any suggestions we would LOVE to hear them. OR is there a site that I can search for L as the second syllable? Can't seem to find one that allows me to search that way.
ANY ANY help would be Wonderful - due in 3 weeks!!!!!

I think Marlowe is different enough from the first two (in that it is two syllables) that I would not have noticed the pattern, so I think you are OK to buck it if there is name you like that doesn't fit with the L beginning the second syllable pattern.
off the top of my head (not any preferences here, just thinking out loud):
Willow (too much like Marlowe)
Zelda (though the D obscures the L a little)

I'm not quite sure how to search for that... I know some name databases have fairly in-depth search options, but I've never seen that option! @youssarian had some good ideas. I especially like Lila, Holly, and Lillian for your family! Ideas I had:
Eilidh (Scottish form of Helen; said AY-lee; in this same vein, Bailey, Haley, Kaylee/Kayla, Raylee, etc. would work, but I definitely wouldn't suggest them! I don't think they really fit with your kids, and they are all extraordinarily trendy...)
Estelle (does this work? It has the "L" sound in the second syllable, but it doesn't start the syllable with the "L" sound)
Joliet (a form of Juliet, I believe)
Philippa (can't really tell if the "L" ends the first syllable or starts the second, but I think it would be magnificent with Oliver, Ellery, and Marlowe! And the nn Pippa is just adorable)
That's all I can think of right now! I think Philippa, Violet, Julia, Lilian/Liliana, Giselle, Elora, Althea, and Stella would be especially cute with your kids.
Also, just figured I would point it out--I never would have realized the theme you have going on, so if you can't find something you love, I don't think there would be an issue at all with going with something else.

I really liked the suggestion of Althea to go with Oliver, Ellery and Marlowe.
