Granddaughter needs a name!

I'm posting on behalf of my oldest DD, she's just had a little girl and has been begging me for suggestions and since the mumsnet community has been so helpful with my other post, I figured this would be a good place to start. Anything which is relatively 'modern' but not too made up. If that makes sense? But still quite traditional, thank you

It's difficult to help you without further information. Are there any other criteria at all that should be met? For example, does it matter if the name is popular (i.e. several children may share the same name as your grand-daughter at school)? Would you like to be able to shorten the name? Does it matter if the name is short or long? Are there any letters or sounds to be avoided? etc
Just as a few suggestions: Olivia, Emily, Sarah, Eve, Clarissa, Zoe, Chloe, Eloise

No, there isn't any specific things, it just can't begin with a J, but maybe names like Katie? She liked that but SIL didn't

Lovely names, not sure what suits her though sadconfused

Bromily, similar sound to Emily but with a modern twist. FWIW I think the name Katie is only for little girls and sounds a bit twee on a woman. Katherine would be better as it offers a choice of nicknames - Katie, Kat, Kate....
