Baby girl due any day now and we are really struggling with names. All discussions end in stalemate. Help!

DH likes Isla and Iona, but I detest both unfortunately.

Throw your suggestions at me please! Looking for something not on the usual top 10 lists but not too obscure. Have you heard any lovely girl names lately??

Love Iona actually!

Lovely fairly unusual (at the moment) girls' names I've heard recently are:

Connie
Elise
Daphne
Rosanna (my favourite!)
Susanna
Penelope

Any of these to your liking?

What about Fiona? Less popular for babies these days but still has the Scottish feel that her Dad seems to like...

Thanks all - some lovely suggestions here and great food for thought.

(I am Scottish and DH English - so while i think the Scottish names are novelty to him, they sound a bit more old hat to me - prob the reason we disagree!)
