Can I have some ideas for non girly names
..nothing too unusual
..nothing trendy that is likely to date
..simple, easy to pronounce and spell?

Sidney?
Unisex, not girly and I don’t think it will date imo.

My 12 yr old DD is called Shae/Shay kids at school think it's a cool name.

Abigail
Ingrid
Imogen
Frances
Niamh

Maybe Louise, Lauren, Harriet, or Anne.

Or something that shortens like:
Alex(andra)
Jo(anne/anna)
Sam(antha)

I wouldn’t say non-girly means unisex. To me, it means an established female name, not cutesy or twee, that has stood the test of time for generations, if not hundreds of years.
