Hypothetical. Paused ttc but will resume soon and DP and I have trouble with names that we like.

So far we have

Beatrice
Rebecca (not a fan of nns though)
Persephone
Ashton (boy)
Gabriel

That’s it. If anyone can suggest any similar names that’d be great. We like names with presence and a bit gothic sounding. I suggested Dante but DP thinks that’s too far.

Love Tabitha, Casper and Colin.

Like Tristan too but it’s a family member.
