I'm 36 weeks, pretty sure we're having a dd. can't even agree on a shortlist with DH. I need your help!!

I like names with 2-3 syllables (would sound best with our last name).

'K' sounds won't work such as Katy

And sounds ending with 'ey' like Jenny, don't work.

Also don't want anything too popular, so preferably not in the top 10-20 in the UK.

Help!!!

what have you come up with so far and what are your boys names? It'll help get a feel for what you might like.

Also can you give us some clues about your surname?

Some great suggestions thanks. Names I like are Celia and Edith, but have been ruled out by DH because he has no taste. Freya is one we both love, but I think it's too popular.

Layla
Sarah
Emmeline
From the suggestions above are lovely. Going to run them all past DH to see what he says.
Charlotte was one we were both loving, but I'm getting cold feet about it now. Like nn Lottie or Charlie though.

Sarah and Emmeline are both lovely.
