I need some ideas to get me started!

I am 13 weeks pg with DC2. My DD is Rosie. My DH likes Harry for a boy and Emily for a girl. I think these names are too popular (although I don't mind popular, there really are a lot of Emilys around).

My other worry with these two names is that they rhyme with Rosie, which sounds a bit twee.

But I haven't come up with a single idea of my own yet.

So, I would like your suggestions for a brother / sister for Rosie, please.

Harold or Henry (but still ends in y)
Emma
I've always liked the Italian version Emilia

Other way round you could have Harriet or Angharad which can be shortened to Harri (or hattie)
Only boys name I could think of is Emmet...

erm, they don't rhyme!

I don't think Emily is much more popular than Rosie. I think both those suggestions go well with Rosie.

How about George for a boy? Alice for a girl?

I wouldn't have a name that ended in the ee sound, so not Harry or Emily or anything where the main nickname would have it, like Ollie.

You start to verge on the twee when you have little Emmy, Libby and Harry I think.
