I NEED YOUR HELP!

 

Ben and I have one girls name that we both agree on, Leona Evermay, after his deceased grandmother Leona Mae. I'm not 100% in love with Leona, but I know it means a lot to him to name a girl after his grandmother, so I consented as long as I could call her by the nickname Lennie.  Other than that we both really like the name Cordelia for a middle, but we don't have any other first names we agree on and he has vetoed most of the names on my list so it looks like I'm starting over from scratch.  

 

Yesterday, I asked him what he would name a second girl (if we had one). He said Lorelei. I don't hate it, but I don't like it enough to use it and I definitely don't want to start an L theme with the girls names. 

 

So if you could suggest names that you think both Ben and I would like, I'd much appreciate it. I tend to like names that are underused, old fashioned and at tad bit southern sounding.  I'm not really sure what Ben's style is :\

 

 

Ben's list

Lorelei - eh.

Cordelia (mn)

Jade (mn) - ew, no

Sapphire - seriously? o.O

Jazebel (mn)

 

 

My list

Andie - Ben would prefer to use Andrew (after his brother) on a boy.

River - Ben gave this a maybe

Farris - Another maybe

Percy - I forget, but I'm pretty sure it was a no.

Molly - Ben says Molly is a dog's name.

Sidda - And I got a big NO on Sidda.

Georgiana (mn) 

Winifred (mn)

Marylark (mn)

Prairie (gp)

Thanks for the suggestions.  I do like most of the names, they are all lovely.  But there just aren't any I could see myself using.  Even looking at my own list, really only Andie & Molly (possibly River & Percy) stand out as names I could picture on future children.  But sadly both of those have been vetoed by Ben.  Also it is hard for me to imagine a little Leona "Lennie." It just isn't really my style and is only on the list because it is so important to Ben.  I would use Leona in the middle name spot in a heartbeat if Ben would let me or even the first name spot, if she went by her middle name...Leona Percy, Percy Leona, Mary Leona, Leona Molly, Leona Farris...If I had a little girl, I'd want to LOVE her name, and I just don't love Leona.  :(
