Dh and I already have a Harry and a Jane, we're expecting another girl and are struggling for name ideas so any help would be appreciated....I like Anna but dh not too sure and he's rather fond of Ruth, it's nice enough but I think it sounds rather harsh.

"Sensible" made me think Joan (Hunter Dunn), but that's probably too similar to Jane.

How about: Susan, Elizabeth, Deborah, Catherine, Jennifer, Pamela?

Also Emma, Elisabeth, Sarah

I have a Ruth, but we call her Ruthie.

I love the name Lucy, but DH didn't like it. Elizabeth, Kate and Jenny are all nice too.

Emma is really dull! grin And all Emmas are dullards wink.

If I had a dd she would be Nancy.

another vote for Frances.

think it goes well with your other names.

Margaret (I love Maggie!)
Elizabeth
Katherine
Helena
Susan (Susie is gorgeous)

Names that I think go well with Harry and Jane are:

Karen
Anne
Penelope (Penny)
Charlotte
Natalie
Emily

I actually quite like Ruth, and actually think it's soft sounding and not harsh at all
