Have just found out I'm expecting DC2. We've got ages but DH and I can't agree on girls' names, though if it's a boy we're set on Edward George fgrin.
We already have DD Eleanor, which was the only one we both liked last time. I'd like something fairly classic and timeless to go with middle name Elizabeth.

I like (at the moment):

Claudia (DH thinks this is OK so it's our front-runner; would want something he loves too though)
Josephine (DH veto)
Jemima (DH hates)
Beatrice (DH hates)
Cordelia (DH said no way)

He likes:

Jessica (don't like)
Rachel (all I hear is Rachel Karen Greene)
Zoe (don't like)
Isobel (like, can't help but feel it's too popular)

We both quite like Audrey but probably not enough to use.

What else might we like?

Love Josephine and Beatrice and Claudia is nice. Like Audrey, too.
Otherwise, how about:
Lydia
Ida
Susannah
Esther (or Hester!)
Rosamund/lind
Viola
Miranda
Juliet
Serafina
Mirabel
Sarah
Jennifer

Was going to suggest Helena or Norah but realised you couldn't have those with Eleanor!

Anna?

Clara?

Charlotte?

Sarah?

Gemma?

Freya?

Josslyn?

I like both your lists- Dds name is there!

Edward George is great too!

Some lovely names here, thanks!

Charlotte would be a contender but it's DD's middle name fsmile

I like Lydia, Viola and Verity and DH likes Sarah and Susannah, but again, we don't see eye to eye... sigh. I couldn't have Meredith Elizabeth could I?

This is all DH's fault stamps foot The only other name I can get out of him is Daenerys...
