Alternatives to Audrey?
Audrey has been the frontrunner for this baby girl I'm carrying, thanks in part to some help from this forum, but I am just having trouble considering the matter settled. Can you help me think of some other names as alternatives?
What's giving me pause about Audrey: the current popularity, the similarity to the even more popular Aubrey, and the fact that Laura Wattenberg wrote that Audrey was the successor-name to Ashley and Courtney (which I read today, and is just not a style-goal I had in mind!). Also, the name seems maybe a little plain; I probably won't get lauded for my creativity. What I like about the name: the timeless feel, and that it doesn't seem to be a name that is "trying too hard." I like that it seems to be a name for a female of any age, in any era.
Other names that feel timeless to me are: Catherine, Julia, Elizabeth. But these names also seem a bit plain and ubiquitous. So I guess I actually want opposing things--sigh! Other names we have considered, but also aren't 100% behind: Gwendolen, Lucinda, Alice, Hazel. She'll join brother Silas.
