    Narrowing down!

    Let me start by saying my husband never likes any name I pick out. I'm in my 2ww, although chances (like all of my chances from the past five years) are slim because I have PCOS... still, we always play the baby name game to liven our spirits!
    Anyway, normally my husband hates EVERY name I pick out. Over time, I have gotten better and better at figuring out his taste. Today I presented him a list of 15 girl names- and he likes 8 of them! Honestly, I'm shook
    We know that the middle name for a girl would be Kathryn, after his sister.
    Without further ado, here's the list...

    1. Kelsey
    2. Elara
    3. Aviva
    4. Elliotte
    5. Gwendolyn
    6. Dahlia
    7. Calico
    8. Iona (E-oh-na)

    I'd love some opinions! Personally, I don't quite care for Gwendolyn, but all of the others I like quite a bit.

    Thank you! I believe we would do 'Ellie' as a nickname for Elara, and 'Io' as a nickname for Iona.

    That's great you were able to come up with a short list together! My favorite name on your list is Gwendolyn but I don't like how it sounds with Kathryn, so paired with that middle name I like Elara, Iona, and Elliotte. I'm assuming it's pronounced like Elliot-- I've just never seen it spelled that way, although it looks like more of a feminine spelling. Regardless of spelling, that one got my vote!

    1. Kelsey - Not a bad name inherently, but it feels a little dated, I know a ton of Kelseys born around 2000.
    2. Elara - One of my favorites on the list. On trend, easy to pronounce and spell, not incredibly common.
    3. Aviva - This is the name I voted for! She's been creeping on the edges on my list of favorites for a long time, she has a very clean, crisp sound, and incorporates multiple trends so she sounds very familiar even though it isn't a name that's heard a lot.
    4. Elliotte - I'm not really a fan of Elliott and its similar spellings; if you're going to use it I would drop the E because people will be more likely to spell it wrong.
    5. Gwendolyn - If you don't really like it maybe it should be off the list. Objectively a nice name though.
    6. Dahlia - I like it, and potential nickname Dolly is cute.
    7. Calico - Not a fan, makes me think of fabric and cats.
    8. Iona (E-oh-na) - It's pretty, not really my style. There might be some confusion about spelling and pronunciation but its a short enough name without other variants that are super popular so people will probably pick up on it quickly.

    Ronan - Arthur - Gabriel - Clayton - Declan - Matthew - Bennett

    Elliotte gets my vote I love the way it sounds with Katheryn. I do think it would be more hassle than it is worth to spell it this way, but either way I think its a wonderful name.

    Aviva got my vote - she's both sweet and peppy. I also like Iona & Elara.
