Uninspired by our girls' list
Need help picking a girl's name. Nothing is quite right. Our list so far:
Alice - kind of uninspiring.
Amelia - like it enough, but it's so common I'm afraid I'd get sick of it.
Beatrix - cool, but makes me think Trixie, which I hate.
Bryony - husband likes, I want to like, just not feeling it. I keep hearing Brian.
Caroline - just ok.
Cecily - maybe? Can't get totally on board.
Charlotte - nice enough, but way overdone around here.
Clara - possibly. Not convinced.
Cora - husband likes more than I do. Seems kinda made up.
Eloise - husband likes, I don't.
Frances - maybe our top choice, but I'm holding out for something better. Middle name maybe?
Genevieve - recent addition to the list. Unsure. I don't usually like French names.
Georgiana - the only one I truly love, but it's unusable with our surname.
Hazel - I go back and forth on this one.
Josephine - Husband likes, I don't.
Juniper - I kinda like nature names, but I also want something with more of a history.
Louisa - maybe, can't decide if I totally like it.
Lucy - husband loves, I really don't.
Ronia - recent addition. Can't decide if I truly like it or it's just novel right now. Conflicting info on its history.
Rosemary - back and forth on this one. Rose and Mary on their own are both so plain.
Violet - would be perfect if it weren't so common these days.
So, fresh ideas? We want something with history, possibly nature inspired, but somehow the more traditional botanical names aren't that exciting to me for the most part. Doesn't have to be uncommon, but I do get easily bored hearing the same names over and over. We're open to the idea of a double name, but can't be anything too long-winded. She'll most likely go by her full name, so nicknames aren't important. As for the one name we love but can't use, Georgiana, I've already tried searching for names with a similar feel and come up empty. Everything on our current list is "just ok" or loved by one, not both of us.
