Hoping you can all help with a difficult set of criteria. So:
Girls name

Can't end in an 's' sound (Alice, Hjördis)
Can't have a 'th' sound (Tabitha, Ruth)
Can't end in 'a' sound (like Bella, Iona ) this is least essential

Thanks in advance for any help. There are very definite reasons for this btw, & if we come to a conclusion, I might even tell you them ;)

Thank you all so much. 'What we like' is a bit tricky, because as far as I see it DH says no to almost everything. Mostly prefer fairly traditional. I like the Greek type names such as Antigone, Jocasta (altho, that's a no go after what happened to her). But mostly DH says no.

He won't go for more flowery names, I honestly think he believes she'll be a target if she has a 'fancy' name. I think Ottilie is lovely, but he says only if our surname was Butterly hmm grin.

Rosie has gone down well. I keep pushing Merryn, but still no (and then I remembered Merryn Trant and started to go off it)
Are there other names like Miriam? Ooh. Mirrian or Mirren.
