    too picky?

    Here I am again.
    I want to know if I am being too picky and need to lower my stanards.
    I have 3 weeks to due date, and we have not even come up with one name we agree with. And we each only have 1 or 2 names we even like.
    Sex of baby is unknown.
    This is our last baby, so last chance to pick a name. I really want something I am in love with. I like normal, but not common names. For a girl nothing ending in an "ee" sound as almost every girl born in my area in the last 3 years has the "ee" sound at the end. I am also trying to avoid an "a" at the end as middle name will likely be Anne. However I really like the names Eliza, Isla, and Jayna.
    For a boy, I have no idea. His middle name will likely be Grey. My husband likes Brodie.
    We have three boys whose names are Jesse, Owen, and Shea.
    I do prefer shorter names, although if I fall in love with a long name I would use it.
    I thank you for your previous suggestions but nothing has struck a chord. I have read endless lists and am just plain old stuck.
    If you have any suggestions please share them, or if you think I am being too picky let me know

    I love the suggestions of Carys Anne and Levi Grey. Brodie is cute but I like the other spelling - Brody.
