    Exclamation DH is still idealess but at least we have some ground rules! Help me make a list!

    Well as I posted last week my husband does nothing but REJECT all my suggestions for name BUT he can never come up with any names himself!

    Im going to get him to look through some babyname book soon but in the meantime at least we have come up with "rules" to find names we both like..

    1. nothing that starts with a J or G
    2. Nothing in the top 50 and preferable out of top 100
    3. Nothing that is made up!
    4. Has a nice meaning (ie. NOT Kennedy..ugly head etc.)
    5. We seem to like Irish, Scottish, English and Latin (not LATINO...LATIN)
    6. I like more interesting/unusual names
    7. He prefers more traditional but not popular
    8. Goes well with DS J0sef P@tr1ck J@mes

    The middle names ( there will be 2) Will be some mix of the following...
    Devora, Elise, Lise, Covy (family thing), Dessa, Eloise, Katherine, Joan

    Our family is a crazy mix of Russian, Irish, and Mexican with a bit of Scottish and German thrown in! .... We live in Canada...HELP PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    on the search for the perfect girls name!

    Thanks for the responses! I know it is a bit of a challenge to find names to fit all my must haves!

    @teacherma... names that I like and have not been rejected yet are... Lilias, Beatrix and Veronica! at least 3 more to bring to DH!

    @cuddles4444 I love Fiona.. it one of the 3 girls names on our list now..., Calista is starting to grow on me.. Calli is such a cute nn, I also like Annika ! I have suggested evangeline to dh before and he says its too much of a name... but maybe he will like Calista or annika!

    I like almost ANY varient of Elizabeth.. ie. Elspeth, Elyse but its soo close my MILs name which is why we may use Elise to honor her as a MN only..

    anyone else have any suggestions?
