Ah that's so annoying especially as Ivy, Rosalie, Audrey, and Lyra are such gorgeous choices!
I also love Isla it's a beautiful choice. She sounds fresh and vibrant. Reminds me of rural landscapes, pebbled beaches... it creates beautiful imagery. Hopefully he'll love this one.
Names similar to these choices are:

I love Isla, it's very fresh and pretty, but it's got a rich history. It's a very "posh" name in my eyes.

Thanks for all your suggestions! Its nice to know I'm not the only one with a frustrating husband!
Some of the names that I am definitely going to run by DH are: Esme, Eva, Clara, Nina, Lana and Dahlia, along with Isla
Other names I loved from your suggestions, but got nixed:
Aria…for no apparent reason
Aurelia…its the name of a town close to where we live, so he nixed it!
Eliza is a family friend
Violet is our pet rabbit's name
Madeline is our niece's name
Amelia/Mia is our SIL name
Stella is another SIL
Lila is my best friend's top baby name, so I won't steal it from her even though its a gem
I also really loved Freya, but he sadly said no… sigh
I really like Emma, love the history and rich literary connections, but I'm a bit worried about how popular it is. I generally don't mind popular names (my all time favourite name was the super popular Lily, and I was going to use it until my cousin did), but I also don't want my little one to be the third Emma in her class
Any other opinions/Suggestions?Maddox (Max) James 08.31.13.
Boys Favourites: Holden, Theron (Theo), Aidan, Killian
