My thoughts: a Mary-name like Marianne or Molly; Margaret or Megan; Julia; Katherine or variants, like Kaitlyn or Kathleen.

The Name Matchmaker on this site is being weird about its suggestions: Logan for a girl?? But it puts Julia at the top of the list with most of the permutations I tried, so it may be worth playing around with some more.

I tried Nymbler, since I could input all four existing names. The ones that felt most "right" were simple, familiar, and felt both classic and current. Some were of an Irish/English persuasion, but only the ones that felt less tied specifically to one place.

A few standouts were Fiona, Lucy, Bridget, Emily, Hannah.

To go with Caroline I would suggest

Annalise, Phoebe, Elena, Felicity, Natalia, Emilia, Lucy, Alexandra, Tessa, Rebecca, Eva, Jemima, Elodie, Greta, Isobel and Holly

Are there any names you would like to use but are either not completely sold on or uable to use?

I think Molly would be an adorable choice for your new little one. Tess, Kate, and Mary come to mind as well.

I will second the suggestion of a Marian name for you.  Molly & Miriam both seem like especiallly good fits.

I do notice your boys all have a Celtic vibe, which makes me want to suggest names like Maeve, Isla or Fiona.  However, Caroline doesn't fit this theme, so perhaps it would be best to leave the Celtic theme to boy names and find something more keeping with the feel of Caroline.  Margaret, Emily, Katherine, Elizabeth or Amelia?

It would be helpful if you could give us something more to go on for your taste in girl names.  What names did you consider runners up when you named Caroline?  Are there names you like but can't use for some reason?  Or perhaps you had some ideas for this baby but they've all been rejected as not quite right?
