My DD is Alexandra So I'm biased, but it definitely fits your criteria smile. Other names I liked included Hannah, Rebecca and Rachel. What about Aurelia as an alternative to Amelia? I have a friend with that name (she's French) and I think it's just beautiful.

Classic, unfaddy and not currently popular.

Also Diana. Surprisingly not popularised by That One.

I think you can't go wrong with Alice, it's elegant and timeless.

My DF's name is Alexander but as he goes by Sandy we didn't see it as a problem. One of my favoured names was also a feminised version of my DH's middle name. No one really knows anyone's middle names anyway so it should t be a reason not to go for a name you love.

I like, Josephine, Claudia and Camilla. I also like Meredith and Frances but you can't use F and maybe Meredith is too F sounding at the end.
