    Need help with name for dd#2

    Hi all,
    I am having SUCH a hard time settling on a name for our second baby girl. She's due in 2 months. Her older sister's name is Claire Elise. My husband and I have considered the following names:

    Charlotte (I love but my husband does not. Also, I now think it's getting too popular anyways.)

    Abigail/nn Abby (too popular again and we kind of fell out of love with)

    Allison/nn Ally (like Ally, but not so sure about Allison)

    Kara (we both love, but sounds too much like Claire)

    Jane Olivia (really like Jane, but recently befriended a couple with a baby named Jane. For some reason, I always think of the other couples' Jane now, and it's not as special to me. Maybe this would go away after birth?)

    Annie Rose OR Annabel/nn Annie Kate (We both LOVE the name Annie. Originally, we dismissed it, as I have a cousin named Annie ((I never see her)). Now it's back on the table. I feel like it needs a formal version, and
    Annabel would give her the option of going by Anna if she wants when older. I like Annalise too, but fear it's too close to big sister's middle name) I meant Rose or Kate as middle names for Annie by the way. I would call her just Annie!

    I'm open to suggestions! We may have to take a couple names to the hospital, but that makes me nervous! Thanks for any advice!

    Thank you! @fiametta- I love Lucy and Grace, but my husband has vetoed them. Beautiful names on your list!
    @judyariel-Thanks! Anna Rose is gorgeous! Is Anna getting really popular? Do you think Annie is an appropriate nn for Anna sometimes. And I love the middle name Rose, but my last name starts with an M. It would spell ARM. Is that a dealbreaker? Also, Alice is another great one from your list. Love Lillian too, but it's already taken in the family. Thanks for your help!

    I really like Claire Elise & Annabelle Rose together. ARM isn't a bad set of initials. It spells a word, but it's not a bad word.
    You can get to the nn Annie or Anna with any name with Ana in it. Here are a few:
    Anastasia Rose or Anastasia Kate
    Eliana Rose or Eliana Kate
    Annika/Anniki Rose or Annika Kate
    Anais Rose or Anais Kate
    Julianna Rose or Julianna Kate
    Oceanna Rose or Oceanna Kate
    Susanna Rose or Susanna Kate

    Other ideas:
    Claire Elise & Adelaide Kate
    Claire Elise & Alice Rose
    Claire Elise & Marguerite Kate, nn Maggie
    Claire Elise & Bronwen Rose
    Claire Elise & Leora Kate

    btw I also like Anna Rose or Anna Kate. Those two choices are nice and simple, pretty and classic. It matches very well with Claire Elise.

    Current favourites: girls -Eliana [Bronwen, Joy, Claire, Irene], Leora [Irene, Bronwen, Bronwyn], Sarah Elise, Anna Charlotte, Adelaide, Phoebe, Kathryn, Elizabeth, Anastasia, Celeste, Astrid, Beatrix, Lucy
    boys: Callum, Arthur [Paul or William], Nathaniel, Samuel, Zachary, Elijah
