    A week old and still no name!

    Baby girl is over a week old and DH and I still can't decide on a name. We have another DD named Elowen. It seems like we've looked at every names possible and at this point it's causing a rift between DH and I because we cannot agree or make a decision.

    We like names that are not popular, easy to spell and pronounce, 2-3 syllable names, and would flow well with Elowen.

    DH's choices:

    Arla - I don't like it, but he's persistent on this name
    Wrenley - I told him it sounds too "made up"
    Endelyn - I'm afraid it's too similar to Elowen

    My choices:

    Juniper - DH hates this name, he says it's too harsh sounding
    Lorelei - DH thinks it's doesn't flow well and not impressed by the name
    Aria - we both like this name, but it's too popular so we're definitely not going to use it.

    At this point, we're frustrated, cranky and tired because we're getting no sleep with a newborn. We need help!

    Any name suggestions would be appreciated!

    Hi there.

    You did a great job naming Elowen! I think that Juniper & Lorelei are beautiful, but I guess that you have to keep looking.

    How about...

    Anais

    Aviva

    Anita

    Aurelia

    Beatrix

    Briar

    Calliope

    Cecily

    Daria

    Delia

    Dahlia

    Eilis

    Finuala

    Felicity

    Guinvere-my all time favorite name...I don't usually suggest it for fear of over exposure, but see if you like it.

    Indigo

    Junia

    Juliet

    Lyra

    Magnolia

    Ottilie

    Rosalie

    Rosalind

    Rosamund

    Soleil

    Sloane

    Tallula

    Zinnia

    Hope this helps.

    I feel like Arla/Aria is where your closest overlap is. It feels like you both like names with a lot of vowel sounds that are on the uncommon side.
    Some suggestions in that vein:
    Amaya
    Ada
    Amelie
    Octavia
    Orla
    Odessa

    I think Odessa is the best option. Not overly-used, intuitively pronounced and spelled, sounds great with Elowen without sounding like Elowen, and has those strong vowel sounds. Good luck!
