Riley

I think Alison looks better with one 'l'
And James is a boys name in UK, as is Adrian (girls version Adrianne or Adrienne - though of course Julian can be either)

Other suggestions:

Another A is Alexandra/Sasha

Or Joanna/Jo, Samantha/Sam/Sammie, Danielle/Dannie, Frederica/Freddie, Stephanie/Stevie?

Stevie
Frankie
Sam
Rowan
Riley
Jamie/Jaime

Riley, Jamie and Rowan on the list thanks smile

DH likes James/adrianna/Charlotte

Not sure about Charlotte because of the royal connection, but it's a cute name.

You've come up with loads more than I had! flowers

Jack - Jacqueline
Tommy - T(h)omasina

I second Sacha/Sasha as a nice unisex name.

Beachedwh4le Wed 22-Feb-17 15:55:53

Love Ted/teddy, but not sure about Theodora which for some reason makes me start singing wizadora, we adore-her!

Sacha immediately makes me think of Ali-G, but is really good with the SN

Phil - Philippa
Matt - Matilda
Jem - Jemima
Lou - Louise, Lucy
Olly - Olivia

I would suggest going with a more obviously female name for her official name (with a masculine nn) as will make it so much easier later in life when dealing with official stuff and schools etc. Or a truly unisex name like Robin.

Francesca/Frankie
Winifred/Freddie
Roberta/Bobby
Olivia/Ollie
Georgina/George

Ashley and Lesley are both unisex.

Beachedwh4le Wed 22-Feb-17 16:05:30

minipie that's a good point, and presumably if when she's older she hates her boy-ish name she can go back to a more girl-ish sounding one

minipie Wed 22-Feb-17 16:07:32

Yes that too

Just thought of Katherine/Kit (I really like this one)

Dinosaursdontgrowontrees Wed 22-Feb-17 16:07:46

I know a little girl called Rory I was a bit unsure at first but now I love it!

Reece
Robyn
Cameron

Beachedwh4le Wed 22-Feb-17 16:10:23

Kit and Cameron are also super cute. 😊

KeepCalm Wed 22-Feb-17 16:11:14

Aurora - Rory
Delphine/Seraphine - Fin
Evangaline - Evan

and we know a gorgeous wee girl called Dylan

Beachedwh4le Wed 22-Feb-17 16:15:48

Would Findlay work for a girl?

ExpectoPatronummmm Wed 22-Feb-17 16:55:21

Dylan for a girl is super cute.

I'm not a fan of Adrian. It's horrible for a boy never mind a girl.

KeepCalm Wed 22-Feb-17 17:22:16

I know a lovely Edith known as Edie.

My Dad always said I should have been Georgina/Georgia known as George lol

Beachedwh4le Wed 22-Feb-17 17:38:02

River is awesome! Love Dylan too

I think we're settled on James as a middle name (I'm not entirely convinced people recognise this as a female name)

VeryIdentifyingTatt Wed 22-Feb-17 17:50:11

I have a Harley,and a Taylor, we also liked Charlie. I think names which can be identified as female or male are brill smile I also work with a female called Peta!
