5th Baby 1st Girl
We have four boys, and are expecting a girl in a few months... Trying to find something that works with her brother's names, but we kind of like a different sound for girls than boys. Our boy names are all short, classic, and old fashioned.
We have -
As far as names in the running for baby girl...
Our leader right now is Leona June. Both are sentimental family names after a grandmother and a great grandmother. My concerns are whether it fits with our other names, and also that we already have a Le sounding name. Using June is pretty non-negotiable for various emotional reasons, but I like it better as a mn than fn.
Other names that we like are; Cora, Lila, Camilla, Lydia, Margeret/Maggie, Elizabeth/Eliza, Greta/Gretchen, Louisa, Josephine and Greer.
I know it is kind of a mixed list, but they are simply all names that dh and I both like in some way. My husband's heritage is German, and our ln is short and very German sounding. My family is Scottish, and Greer has been one of my faves for a while, but dh thinks it isn't an obvious girl's name. Eliza might be too close to Ezra, and Greer to Grant.
Maybe I am overthinking this, but as it is our last babe and only girl, I am feeling the pressure for perfection!
