Need a name for DD2, gone off our chosen name...

DD2 is due end of March. DH and I picked Bethan, which we loved but DH has informed me he has gone off it a bit. Other names which we have considered are;

DD1 is Matilda. We chose Bethan as it feels similar in that it's feminine, but not too girly. Really not keen on any ie/we/ sounding names, apart from possibly Emily. We both like Alice but DH had a friend called Alice who died and is not comfortable with it. Also Iris.

Any ideas?

I love

Whoops totally messed up my post, sorry!

I love names like Aurora (nn Rory), Florence and Miranda.
