To ask for help with baby name

I’m due a dd2 soon and I’m getting stupidly stressed about a name, I know it’s silly and I am trying to relax about it but for some strange reason it’s keeping me awake at nights. Dd1 was named after someone very close to me so there was never any debate to her name so nothing this time seems to feel right. And I can’t help thinking not being able to name her somehow reflects on my feelings for this baby although I know it’s stupid

Can anyone make suggestions of feminine an unusual names as I really can’t even think anymore

Hello

Here are some names I really like:

Eleanor
Rosalind
Marianne
Julia
Elizabeth

They’re well known enough for people to have heard of them but aren’t particularly common.

Do you need middle names too?
Does the name need to somehow go with DD1s name?
What about surname clashes?

Sydney
Freya
Charley
Nausicaa
Penny
Yvette
Sunnie
Berry
Cherry
Loretta
Lorelei (wanted to use this one)
Jaime

She doesn't need to be named immediately. And a name might occur to you as soon as you see her. Or a name might occur to you a week after she's arrived.

I reckon you should wait until you meet her if you have nothing certain or nothing at all lined up.

My Dd2 was born on Wednesday and up until and after her birth she didn’t have a name, then a name I previously dismissed was mentioned and it just suited her so much I’ve gone with it, still figuring out middle name but I’m in love with her name now, and yet had completely rejected it on first hearing. Keep a list going and take the pressure off and wait until she is here is my advice smile

Love this but I found it stressful to find one for my DDs. A few more below:

Evie
Louisa
Elise
Laeticia
Joanna
Natalie
Alexandra

My name has been mentioned on here grin and it's the name I chose for myself - I hate my birth name so I changed it in my early 30s.
That said, I like Miranda, Eleanor, Bryony too.
Not one of my (5) children ended up being called what I originally planned, once they were born they just "looked like" someone else iykwim.
