At a bit of an impasse with baby due in a few weeks. We've settled on a boy's name we both like, but can't come to any agreement on one for a girl.

Names I like:
Alice
Charlotte
Edith
Eleanor
Isabel
Juliet
Rebecca

DH doesn't like any of these, unfortunately. His one suggestion has been Sophie, but we both agree it doesn't sound right with our last name (this ends in an -ee sound so first names with the same ending sound a bit off. Which rules out a lot, unfortunately).

Help! Any suggestions for names that might appeal to me and The Fussiest Man in Christendom DH? Thanks in advance.

We liked Sophie when I was pregnant with DD but couldn't use it for exactly the same reason (we have an -we sounding surname)

What about Sophia? I didn't like it when I was pregnant with DD but I really like it now.

None grabbing me yet, Ojoj! We already have a Rachel and a Catherine (both of which I love) in the immediate family. For some reason I don't like Sophia nearly as much as Sophie.

I know, I know, I'm not being much use!

For me Judith is the same genre as Catherine and Rachel - possibly Jennifer too, Helena.
