Long time lurker, first time poster

Me and DH are making separate lists of the girls names we like and then hoping there will be some cross over.

I've come up with a few names but I'd appreciate any suggestions since I suspect that DH and I will have quite different tastes and that our lists will end up being cut substantially when we compare them.

Here is what I have so far:

Rosemary (nn Romy)- this is probably my favourite
Apolline [AH-pol-lean] (nn Apple/ Polly)- This might be a bit too 'out there'
Martha
Hannah
Lucy
Beatrice (nn Bea)- probably too trendy (I'm not cool enough for anything too hip), but I do love Bea
Alice
Coralie- Is this too cutesy for a grown woman?
Elowen- I LOVE this but it sounds far too matchy with DH (Owen), so it's out, but on this list because it gives you an idea of the names I like
Edith (nn Edie)- ditto the trendy thing
