feeling uninspired

Am 17w with DC2. Have a four year old DD with a short, unusual but not outlandish name which we love.

I'm feeling so uninspired trying to come up with a name for this new one!

We both liked Eva when I was pregnant with DD, but were out off by how popular it seems. I still like it but the overpopularity thing lingers. We have a common surname so ideally want to avoid really common first names. DP has come up with Hannah so far, it's quite nice but I'm not sure I'm convinced. Nina popped into my head today, but don't know if DP will like it or not.

At the moment I quite like John for a boy. Also like but can't use Alexander, Daniel and Fraser. Quite like Cameron but know loads where we are (in Scotland).

Any inspiration welcome!

Nina and Hannah are both lovely.

John is a good, solid name and due a comeback!

Just trying to think of names that are well known but not hugely well used.

Oh thanks, some nice ideas. Some we can't use due to others having the names. Cora and Douglas were on the list last time so think we will revisit them. Also love Naomi. Will show DP all the ideas and see what grabs him.

Thanks. DP has already vetoed Caroline sad. Lydia was in the running last time but lots of people said things that out me off! I like Martha.
