baby sister for Olivia, Vivian, and Georgia,

Dh and I just can't agree. I tend to like classic, but not wildly popular names. Olivia is 15, so wasn't so popular when we picked it. I like names with a southern feel, including some double first names.

I really liked Delia or Dahlia, but dh vetoed them. He suggested Delilah, which I like the sound of, but just can't get past the Biblical character. Although, I read this name was popular with the Puritans which I found surprising.

I used to love Charlotte, but it's too common now.

Suggestions?

From Laura's expert name matching tool:

Isabel, Emilia, Lucia, Phoebe, Carolina, Josephine, Genevieve, Adelaide, Catalina, Marina, Violet, Lila, Helena, Lydia, Irene, Mariana, Daniella, Camilla, Ruby, Stella, Rose, Adeline

I chose names that weren't in the top 100. Good luck!

If you like the sound of Delilah, maybe Lilah instead?  It would certainly eliminate the problems assoiated with the Biblical Delilah.

Cordelia, Helen, Violet, Hazel, Amelia, Anabel, Stella, Audrey?

Emilia, Violet, Amelia, and Cordelia are all good suggestions with your other girls' names.

I personally would avoid using Delilah because it sounds similar to Olivia, I think it's the l followed by the uh.  I also would't want to use another name ending in the uh sound, so Vivian isn't singled out.  

DH and I have 2 girls: Lilla and Vivienne and my niece is Georgia :)
Some names we like are Rosalie, Cecily, Isobel, Eleanor (I really like this one with your girls)

If you like Charlotte what about Scarlett or Cecilia

I agree with these concerns. I also would use a new first letter, so sadly not Violet or Genevieve. I think some good non-"uh" names have been mentioned: 

Helen, Hazel, Anabel, Audrey, Rosalie, Eleanor, Phoebe, and Scarlett.

Or: Abigail, Chloe, Evelyn, Camille, Celeste, Daphne, Lorelei, Jacqueline, Juliet, Josephine, Zoe.

Great suggestions here. Of them, I like Marina or even Marin to avoid the 'uh' ending would fit very well. All of your names, though seem to be trending upwards, so both of these would likely be outliers to their sibs in popularity. Again with the 'uh' but Clara might fit the bill. 

Try not to worry much about Vivian standing out - you picked it because you love the name and the child - that's all kids need to know. That said, I struggle with this too should we have a 4th girl - not sure where to turn next with Avery, Sydney and Cassidy.

Congratulations and best wishes.
