Hard name to pair
Hubs is a chem guy and we lucked out in that the name I had my heart set on for girl 1 was Beryl and had a nod to his chem through beryllium. So she ended up Beryl Rose (as a slight nod to my love of Sleeping Beauty growing up).
Now with a 2nd kid on the way we're set on boy names (he's got his first boy tradition that I'm cool with continuing), but for a girl we're at a loss. He doesn't have any suggestions other than something that follows the same theme as Beryl - chemistry and literature nods. I have been in love with the name Eilonwy forever and would love to use it as a first name with a more chemistry middle name, but no opposed to the reverse.
I'm not big on the obvious Ruth or Ruby options in general or in conjunction with Eilonwy.
And yes, I get that it will have pronunciation issues. But the I'm willing to deal with it in the beginning and as someone with friends with odd names they never minded during school and those who did got to class early day one and clarified and there were never any issues.
