    I picked both Florence and Imogen. I see the Florence and Bruce ending issue, but as the previous poster said, the sounds are a bit different to me. Imogen is cool too, similar to Ramona to me in it's rather unusualness, not-frilly, slightly spunky femininity. As the previous poster mentioned, I think it's wise to stay away from Ida with your surname. It's the classic cheesy knock-knock joke name, and since starts with cow and sounds kinda like cow-herd (?), too...well, "I da cow" "I da cow herd" are not fun if she turns into a chubby middle schooler. (Same, to a lesser extent for Etta...could easily turn into "ate a cow" "eat a cow"?)

    I love Ramona, Bruce, and Florence together. So mid-century modern to me. In your existing list, I think Margot is the best fit with Ramona & Bruce in style/era. I also love Mabel, but it feels weird next to Bruce.

    And I absolutely LOVE that you are using Bruce, btw. It is my FIL's name as well and we are also planning to use it, though probably as a mn. (I'm opposed to confusion with honor naming, so no first names after any immediate relations who are still alive.)

    Thanks for your help ladies! Hoping for a few more votes

    I have been having Ramona repeat various names after me like "say...Margot, say...Imogen" and I have to say it makes some of the names cuter than ever to me! Margot, Imogen and Sylvie are adorable in her little 2 year old speak!
    Mama to my little bunny girl (3/2011) and my silly bubble girl (11/13). Baby BOY is coming 9/17!!
