Looking for similar names. Suggestions?

We’re having our 2nd child in [name]December[/name], a girl. We currently have [name]Conor[/name] [name]Michael[/name].

Here are a couple of names that I like:

[name]Lydia[/name] ([name]Lola[/name], [name]Layla[/name]) [name]Jeanne[/name]
[name]Nora[/name] [name]Jeanne[/name]
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Caroline[/name]

Right now, I think DH likes [name]Nora[/name] best, but I know of 3 already. [name]Jeanne[/name] is a family name, so I do like that as a middle name, though. And I think [name]Nora[/name] [name]Jeanne[/name] flows pretty well.

Other names we like but can’t use, for various reasons, include [name]Kaylee[/name], [name]Ruby[/name], [name]Lily[/name], [name]Leila[/name], [name]Sarah[/name], Merian

My rules are that I want something shorter - 1 to 3 syllables, no obvious nickname for it. (My name is [name]Elizabeth[/name], and it’s a pain to deal with so many nickname options). It has to go with our Irish last name - a Mc name. A C/K name is probably NOT something we want, although if the name is perfect, we’d go with it. Also, nothing too fancy or unusual.

Our backup boys name is [name]Miles[/name] [name]Alexander[/name].

So, my question is… what other girls names would fit well here? Thanks for the help!


Off the top of my head these come to mind…
[name]Elsie[/name] (as a variant of [name]Elspeth[/name]/[name]Elizabeth[/name] this might be a night way to honour you?)
[name]Cora[/name]/[name]Cara[/name] (Probably a little too matchy with [name]Connor[/name] though?)

[name]Hope[/name] these help!

Hmm, similar names:
[name]Hadley[/name] [name]Jeanne[/name]
[name]Cora[/name] [name]Jeanne[/name]
[name]Bonnie[/name] [name]Jeanne[/name]
[name]Natalie[/name] [name]Jeanne[/name]
[name]Hannah[/name] [name]Jeanne[/name]
[name]Daphne[/name] [name]Jeanne[/name]
[name]Harlow[/name] [name]Jeanne[/name]
[name]Meredith[/name] [name]Jeanne[/name]
[name]Felicity[/name] [name]Jeanne[/name]
[name]Fiona[/name] [name]Jeanne[/name]
[name]Theresa[/name] [name]Jeanne[/name]
[name]Hazel[/name] [name]Jeanne[/name]
[name]Naomi[/name] [name]Jeanne[/name]
[name]Sadie[/name] [name]Jeanne[/name]
[name]Abigail[/name] [name]Jeanne[/name]


I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Nora[/name], and adore it with [name]Jeanne[/name], however: [name]CoNOR[/name] and [name]NORa[/name]? A lot of similar sounds going on there. Not a deal breaker, but thought I’d point it out.

With [name]Conor[/name], (which is also a fabulous name!) my favourite of your list is [name]Mae[/name] [name]Caroline[/name]. I love seeing [name]Mae[/name] in the front spot, and [name]Caroline[/name] is so beautiful and ladylike. A very fresh and sweet combination.
