Girl name suggestions.. no particular type of name, just anything

Me and DP just cannot agree on a name. I like older traditional names and he likes modern frilly names (for a girl)

We’re trying to just not have a particular ‘type’ of name, just suggestions in general.

I’d prefer a name that isn’t too common, but I don’t mind names that are common, that aren’t trying to be rare (e.g. Charlotte is quite common now but it’s not a name that’s trying to be different) if that makes sense.

Anyway, we’re back to square one with names so any suggestions would be appreciate!

Adeline / Adelina ? Traditional for you and currently popular/frilly for your husband

Alice is lovely and I’m also a recent fan of Lola and Bonnie although Bonnie might not grow up with someone brilliantly so is a risk imho.

If you're really stuck, have a look at the ONS website. They've published the rankings for baby names in England and Wales for 2019 now. You can download the full tables - it's really interesting and certainly gave us a few good name ideas to start with - www.ons.gov.uk/releases/babynamesinenglandandwales2019

I have a Harriet and I love it as it's a bit girly and frilly but definitely strong and classic.
