I'm due in 3 weeks and oh decided he doesn't like any of the names we had for our baby girl.
I really like classic, vintage names like Vivienne, Helena, Clara, Eleonor. He said he would like a name starting with L or A. Anything starting with El should be fine as well (but he doesn't like "nor" in eleonor). If anyone has any suggestions would be great as I'm going mad here.
My oh is Muslim, it doesn't have to be Arabic name but it would be advantage.
My nieces name is Lily so can't be too similar.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you x

I was going to suggest Elena, I think it looks nicer than Eleanor but sounds the same!

What about Ayla? It's a Turkish name. I think it's beautiful!

Pronounced the same way as the Scottish name Isla

Ayla is very pretty!

All of the names are great. It just me I just really liked the idea of calling my daughter vivi (vivienne) or nell (Helena or Eleonor).
So far I like Abigail, Adele, Adaline, Lavinia, Ellena, Lydia.
I literally feel my brain scramble ; (
