    Starting to hope this baby is NOT a boy...

    ...because I seriously don't have a single name that feels right.

    Of course, there are plenty of fine names, just nothing I can really visualise in our family. My whole list feels a little forced. The only names I truly do love (William, Oliver, Oscar) are extremely popular and I'm finding it hard to come to terms with the popularity.

    We have one daughter with a very unusual name, and although we both still adore it and it suits her just beautifully, it is causing me to have slight pangs of name regret because I'm drawn to more classic choices this time around. I feel as though I can't go for something really popular (like William) because it feels so mismatched.

    The name we have decided on if this baby is a girl is Marguerite. We are completely enamored with this name and I'm starting to hope for another girl so that I can use a name I truly love. I also feel that even though Marguerite is infinitely more familiar than my first daughters name, they still pair very nicely.

    Can you help me fall in love with one of these names? I'm more interested to hear which name from my list receives the most positive feedback... but I am open to a few suggestions, too.

    Frederick (DH and I both agree on but I just don't love love it)
    Oliver (have loved for so long but I think it's just too popular)
    William (see Oliver)
    Henry (see Oliver)
    Oscar (see Oliver)
    Edmund (I really love this but DH does not)
    Raphael (not completely sold on it)
    Arthur (I like, DH does not)
    Walter (too stodgy?)
    Francis (too feminine?)
    Winslow (We both really like this but it's not exactly a classic choice)
    Winston (too heavy?)

    Thanks berries!
