    Where I come from in the South, girls' names tend to be a family surname: Bentley, Camden, Peyton, Lauck, Shelton, Brigham, Alston, Tyler, Blakely, Linley, etc. These are sometimes double-barrelled with Anne, Mae, Mary, etc: Anne Waverly, Anne Hampton, Mae Monroe (and then there are the more regular double names like Mary Catherine, Marybeth, Billie Anne, or Carrie Frances). I would suggest digging into your family tree (and your husband's!) for names you like!

    Then there are a few feminizations of male names: Ryanne, Evanne (prn. just like Evan), Laine...

    Other names that evoke the South for me: Magnolia, Azalea, Camellia, Bay, Flannery (love-was a family surname of hers!), Virginia, Carolina, Georgia, Savannah, August and Augusta, Osceola, Nola, Summer, Scarlett off the top of my head

    I have met a few ladies named Paralee/Paralie. Also, Bobbie-Jo comes to mind.
