Need help with name for girl #3
We are really stuck on a name for another girl and thought I'd consult the hive mind here for some suggestions. Our other daughters are Audrey Claire and Camille Josephine. Some names that we like but aren't quite right (and the reason we rejected them):
-Charlotte (waaaaay too popular)
-Amelia (close relative already named that)
-Juliette/Juliet (my husband HATES nicknames and thinks she would become Jules or Julie)
-Simone (have been told by several ppl this is an African-American name and it would be gauche cultural appropriation to use it)
-Isabel (too popular and nicknames)
-Madeleine (too popular and nicknames)
-Laurel (rhymes with our last name)
The "unlikely to be called by a nickname" rule really complicates things, but it's one my husband is unwavering on (He prefers his full name but people automatically shorten it constantly and he HATES it. Think a William who wants to be William, but everyone calls him Will or Bill or...). Nobody makes nicknames out of middle names though, so we could still use one of those names for a middle name
We are currently leading towards Elise (but are having trouble coming up with a middle name that sounds nice with it) or Caroline (but husband is worried that it may become Carrie).
Anyone have any other name ideas? Or suggestions for middle names for Elise?
