A baby sister for Reuben and Gabriel?

We are having a nightmare trying to agree on a name for our impending arrival,
I have loved Beatrice since the beginning of time, but now we are finally having a girl I'm not so sure, other names I love Violet, Betty, Ivy, Olive but DH isn't so keen. I'd like something that goes with Reuben and Gabriel, unusual but not too 'out there' I love the old lady chic but our surname is Barnes and don't want our little lady sounding like she belongs in Corrie!
Help mumsnetters, desperately seeking inspiration!?!

Lara.

Out of all of those very lovely names, the least CS-type with your surname (which you might not want to give out as you're now identifiable?) would be Beatrice, in my opinion.

Or Autumn.

Biblical female names eg
Damaris, Martha, Esther, Ruth

Wellyour boys have (lovely) biblical names, so how about something in keeping? For some reason Esther springs to mind...

I love Damaris and Martha as per PP, but my absolute favourite is Beatrice (which is my top name if I have a girl next).

Changeling we obviously followed the same thought process!

Lara is very pretty and one I've not thought of, I love Autumn but it's the name of my DH God daughter. Wasn't sure how to get across the Corrie connotation without giving out my actual surname?! Should I be worried about being identified? I'm new to mumsnet?

Lucylootwo Sun 19-Jul-15 22:47:09

I love Martha too, my best friends daughter... All the girls names I love are already taken! I do love Beatrice, I'm not sure why I've suddenly gone off it? Hormones probably!

Biscuitsneeded Great minds and all that grin

First thought was Martha as well.

I agree that Biblical names would go beautifully with the ones you already have.

Eliza? Similarly sparkly to your DSs' names IMO. smile

I love biblical boys names, I was so convinced this baby was another boy we'd already picked out Joseph. Just not massively keen on any of the biblical girls names, I do like Abigail & Jemima but not sure either work with the boys names? It's soo hard!

Iris?

Esther

Eliza or Juliet, though I do adore the name Olive from your list (DS would have been an Olive if he was DD2 - we werent brave enough to name DD1 it).

Ruth.

Enough biblical-ness to go nicely with the other two, but not overly so iykwim.

It's also a bit old lady chic as well!

Layla / Laila (preferable)

Beatrice is lovely I think.

My first thought was Elodie but I think it might be quite popular now.
