My name is Maci Elizabeth and my husbands names is Christopher (Chris) Leon.
We love the name Oliver (Ollie) for a boy but are struggling for a girls name.
I love the idea of combining both of our names but all you really get is a generic Casey/ Chrisaci
Nothing great.
Any ideas at all?
(The best Ive heard is Molly/ Popp/Daisy/Callie)
But they may be too generic.
Does anyone have any help for me?

Oliver is a beautiful name for a boy. For a girl, Olivia is simiar to Oliver. Callie is also a lovely name.

If you're looking for some more creative combinations of your and your husband's names: 


Naomi – Your husband has an N and an O in his name and you don’t; you have an M in your name and he doesn’t. You each have an A and an I, and your name ends with the I. 
Malia – This name takes a sound from each of your names, the “ma” part of Maci and the “lee” part of Leon. 
Amelie – The first half of this name reworks some letter combinations from your name (AM from Maci, ELI from Elizabeth) and also incorporates the “lee” sound from Leon. 
Noelle – NOEL is Leon backwards, with the extra LE coming from the first two letters of Elizabeth. 
Nicole / Nicolette – This name would also incorporate all of the letters from Leon, plus the IC from Maci. Nicolette would further include the T sounds present in Elizabeth and Christopher. 
Ari / Aria / Ariana - The AI comes from your first name, and the R comes from Christopher. The ending of the name would just be your preference, but the extra A in Aria or Ariana could come from Elizabeth, and the N in Ariana could come from Leon. 
I also don't think Molly, Callie, Daisy, or Poppy are too generic at all, though I wouldn't necessarily use Molly or Callie as a sibling to Oliver "Ollie."

You seem to like girly, short-but-sweet names. May I suggest:


-Maisie/Maisy (This name is typically pronounced like "Daisy", but with an "M")

-Tansy/Tansie (Its a cute flower name, like Poppy and Daisy, but not commonly used)

-Nelle (Pronounced like "Elle" with an N. You could pronounce it "Nellie", if you prefer so.)

-Caelin (A traditional name with a sweeter, unique spelling)

-Shelby/Shelbi (My sister's name, its cute without being overly childish, and stands out without being weird. Spell it "Shelbi" for a girlier touch.)

-Tuesday (Cute and unique. "Tuesday's child is full of grace.")

-Friday (Also unique, not quite as cutesy to me. "Friday's child is loving and giving.")

-Holly (a flower name, cutesy, and not overused)

-Heavenly (adorable girls name, very unique)




These are just a few of many! I hope they help, and as always, I'd love to hear your feedback and decision!
