I pretty much agree with everyone else, but I’ll add my comments anyways
[name]Brooklyn[/name] - Berlynne/[name]Berlin[/name], [name]Daelyn[/name], [name]Holland[/name], [name]Jessamine[/name], [name]Cherilyn[/name], [name]Jocelyn[/name], [name]Shaelyn[/name]…really anything but [name]Brooklyn[/name] might be good if you don’t want something really common. [name]Brooklyn[/name] is the new [name]Ashley[/name].
[name]Cecilia[/name] - I don’t know the song and I listen to A LOT of music. As far as I’m concerned the only name permanently retired due to a song is [name]Lola[/name] I love [name]Cecilia[/name] and [name]Cecily[/name]. I think [name]Cecilia[/name] [name]Grace[/name] or [name]Cecily[/name] Nafisa would be nice.
[name]Eden[/name] - This name has been on the brink for 20 years, I just don’t think it’s going to go crazy popular anytime soon. I think it is beautiful, but I don’t particularly think it goes well with [name]Grace[/name] or Nafisa.
[name]Eliana[/name] - It’s beautiful, but if you are thinking to just call her [name]Ellie[/name], she’ll be in a crowd of Ellies in school. Otherwise, [name]Eliana[/name] is a winner
[name]Evelyn[/name] - old lady names are back with a vengence and I doubt she’d be alone as [name]Evelyn[/name], especially since [name]Ava[/name] is overpopular. I agree with your man, it’s definitely nursing home material, and if that is his reason for disliking it, I don’t think you’ll be able to shake it.
[name]Isabel[/name] - definitely too popular, with good reason! It’s a beautiful name. I’m gonna fight for [name]Jezebel[/name]. I love it, but I’m too chicken to use it! If you’re the daring type, PLEASE use it!! Maybe Jessabelle? I’m dead serious about that.
[name]Luka[/name] - it’s a boy’s name and a song about an abused kid. Take a pass on this for about 10 more years.
[name]Madeline[/name] - this name used to be either [name]Madeleine[/name], [name]Madeline[/name] or [name]Madelyn[/name], overwhelmingly the first spelling. Nowdays, it’s super popular ([name]Maddie[/name], anyone?) and it’s spelled a bizillion ways. You will have to spell it over and over and over again, which may drive you insane (I had to spell [name]Kellie[/name] millions of times with my first daughter and I wouldn’t recommend that!)
[name]Violet[/name] - This is a beautiful color name and I’m all about the colors! However, if your husband is anti-granny, I can’t imagine he’d go for this one. He may go for [name]Juliet[/name], [name]Crimson[/name], [name]Tamsin[/name], [name]Primrose[/name], or even [name]Pansy[/name].
[name]Viviana[/name] - beautiful name without that piney resthome scent! It’s classic but so underused both today and yesterday that you and the man might be able to agree. I also think it rocks with [name]Grace[/name] and Nafisa.
Good luck with the naming! I’m sure you’ll find the perfect name
