    You have a few on here that I haven't suggested to him before which is wonderful! I am going to make a list and run some by him tonight!

    Thank you so much for the suggestions. For the middle name we are thinking something from the family. It will probably either be Victoria after great grandpa Victor or Caroline after grandma's middle name Carol. But it all depends on the first name because my son almost ended up with the initials we have to be careful! Haha!

    You have some lovely names on your list. I especially like Linnea, Blythe, Cecelia and lovely to see Finola on your list.

    Linnea Marguerite
    Annabel Blythe
    Blythe Marion
    Finola Margaret

    Jeanette Hazel
    Georgiana Elise
    Caroline Margot

    Thank you for the suggestions and the nicknames too! I guess I am having a hard time picturing Felicity on a little girl...probably because I've only ever known adults with this name.

    Some suggestions...
    Fiona (Fi)
    Charlotte (Charlie, Lottie)
    Violet (Vie, Lettie)
    Matilda (Millie, Tillie)
    Eleanor (Ellie, Nell, Nora)
    Annabel (Annie, Bella)
    Helena (Nellie)
    Genevieve (Evie, Ginny)

    Good luck!

    He is definitely more conservative when it comes to naming. There are also very conservative names within his own siblings...Rebecca, Abigail, Gloria, I think that is how he is programmed.

Don't worry too much about nicknames I would say, if you're a nicknaming sort of person they'll probably emerge naturally for most any name you pick, and especially a 3-syllable name like Felicity. Do you like Felicity otherwise? I think it's a really nice name! Felicity Claire is lovely.

    From the examples you give I think your two styles seem fairly similar - the vibe I get from most of them is classic, unpretentious, sophisticated, though maybe he's a bit more conservative than you? You each picked a few of my aunts' names out (which all seem to get a lot of positive comments on this site) so maybe you have similar taste to my grandparents, so I'll include the other sisters
