Name my dd!

Dd is due next week and we're still stumped for her name! Help me out mnetters! Here's the criteria:
1. Middle name to be Christina so something that goes with that.
2. We like traditional names so nothing too modern (no Keira-type names). DS is Edward, to give you an idea.
3. Nothing one-syllabled - surname is only one syllable so I think it needs a first name that's more than one syllable to balance it out. Surname begins with P.
4. Names we love but have ruled out because they're already in the family: Alice, Lucy, Elizabeth.
5. Would prefer it not to be a name in the top ten - I love Olivia, Evie etc, but don't want her to be one of five in her class.

I think that's it - please share your ideas! I promise I will update with what we choose!

Daphne (primrose made me think of Daffodil and I reached Daphne - which I think is pretty and due a come back).

I was going to say Elizabeth... but, if not, I'm not sure how these names go but:

Jennifer
Diana
Avalyn/Avelyn
Evelyn (you said you liked Evie)
Maria
Permelia (not a name I'd ever though about, but I think Permelia Christina has a ring to it)
Sarah/Sara/Sera/Serah
Charlotte
Louise/Louisa
Winnifred
Natalie
Abigale
Helen/Helene
Mary

I think those are ok. The ending with an 'a' thing is a bit tricky. I think it depends on the combination, your surname and also how often you plan on using your child's middle name. For your son, how often do you call him Edward/Ed/Eddie/Ted versus, say, Edward James (or whatever his middle name is)?

Alternatively, just make her name Christina and save all the trouble. grin

Thanks so much for all the suggestions everyone. I've added Phoebe to the list too. Not so keen on Posy and Daphne - I think they're a bit too girly for me. So current faves are Imogen, Beatrice, Violet, Abigail and Phoebe - any more like those you can think of? This is a huge help, MN has done more in 12 hours than DH and I have managed in nine months grin

I think the A ending is okay. My "official" (never used) name is Christina and my middle name begins and ends with an "A". I think it flows fine but is a bit of a mouthful grin so I would say maybe bit a shorter first name otherwise it's a lot to write on forms!

Somebody said Mary Christina, I think that sounds lovely.
