If you like Toby for a boy what about a girl?

Due a girl in 3 weeks and still struggling with a name. Convinced she was going to be a boy and had Toby Eldon as a name! Her brother is Henry James. Having said that not a huge fan of traditional girls names like Elizabeth/Victoria etc so would prefer really classic names. Also needs to be easy to pronounce and spell as we have a vvvv complicated surname!

Getting desperate so would love suggestions!

Would prefer 'not' really classical names! Baby brain....

Alice, Lauren, Emily and Laura jumped out to me after reading what you were looking for.

They are a bit plain for me. I think I have opposite taste in girls names to boys names!

I like the name Toby, and I have a daughter named Etta. I also liked Lily, Phoebe and Jessica.

Ah ok, I went based on Henry, James and Toby - they seem very classic and neutral to me.

How about Lilian, Elise, Cora or Meryl?

Etta and Cora are lovely

Thanks Jenda! Etta is asleep on me right now and she is lovely. She has a mad mop of curly hair and big green eyes. I'm ever so fond.

We have a Toby & DC3 would have been Mirabelle if he'd been a girl.

I'm expecting a boy and Toby is one of our top names. If he was a she we would have had;
Edie
Elsie
Matilda (Tillie for short)
Norah
Florence
Evangeline
Ren
Carys
Seraphina

On the other hand I do know of a female Tobie if you're brave enough? wink
