Looking for inspiration

I have my third child due in the Summer and I'm starting to think about names. I'm not anticipating it's going to be easy as my husband doesn't have the same taste in names plus he will rule out a name if he has known someone called this in his lifetime hmm Names I like but he has vetoed for some reason are:
Theo
Tristan
Dominic (but don't like Dom)
Max
Aidan
Eli
Jude
Jonah

Iris
Tess
Tilda
Eva

Thoughts...and what else might I like?

That's just changing one letter of names I've already mentioned! Not sure DH will fall for that! grin

Quite like Kit, but my daughter's pet name is Kitty (her given name is totally unrelated)...think she might be a bit miffed! Also like Louis and Elliot but DH doesn't.

Thanks for these suggestions. I like Franklin, Otto, Joel, Seth and maybe Arlo for a boy. For a girl I'm liking Hazel, Tansy, Nina and possibly Francesca although I generally prefer shorter names. My DS and DD has short names that can't be shortened further (their names are in my original list) so not sure a longer name would 'go' with them.

deptfordgirl, thank you and I agree!
