Girl name ideas based on my shortest shortlist of boy names

I recently scrapped my UC and I’m excited for a bit of a blank slate.

My top three boy names are Grover, Peregrine, and Vesper. I go back and forth between them and they each have different imageries and meanings to me. I tried to make this the “shortest shortlist,” but I couldn’t quite contain myself so the two combos I’m liking right now are [name_m]Hugo[/name_m] [name_u]Eliot[/name_u] [name_u]River[/name_u] & [name_m]Hershel[/name_m] [name_u]Ezra[/name_u] [name_u]Clove[/name_u].

I would love to see if you have any ideas for girl names based on this list. I’ve done something a little similar before and every time I’m feeling uninspired, I open up the thread and remember so many wonderful names. I’d appreciate any thoughts you have, whether it’s “x would be a good sister name for y,” or “if you like [name_m]Grover[/name_m] you might like [name_f]Clover[/name_f]…”
Whatever it is, I’m all ears.

Thank you for your thoughts :yellow_heart:
