Suggest girl names : Me and dh have different naming styles!

We are shortlisting some names.

My list: Liliandil (lil-ee-AHN-dell), [name_f]Calliope[/name_f], [name_u]Sage[/name_u], [name_f]Arwen[/name_f], [name_f]Willow[/name_f]
His: Danilyn, [name_u]Briley[/name_u], [name_u]Campbell[/name_u], [name_m]Lyndon[/name_m], Novalee, [name_u]Blakely[/name_u], [name_m]Macaulay[/name_m]

Our naming styles are very different. Can you suggest names which may appeal to both of us?

[name_u]Willoughby[/name_u]
[name_f]Bronwen[/name_f]

You both seem to like double Ls, and generally like longer names.

[name_f]Welcome[/name_f] to Nameberry! :slight_smile:

You seem to like fanciful, fantasy-like names and your husband modern, surname-y unisex names. What about:

[name_f]Briar[/name_f]
[name_u]Wren[/name_u]
[name_f]Nova[/name_f]/[name_f]Novella[/name_f]
[name_f]Endellion[/name_f]
[name_u]Fable[/name_u]
[name_f]Jessamyn[/name_f]
[name_f]Saffron[/name_f]
[name_u]Marlowe[/name_u]
[name_f]Tempest[/name_f]
[name_f]Juno[/name_f]
[name_u]Juniper[/name_u]
[name_u]Arden[/name_u]
[name_f]Lumi[/name_f]
[name_f]Blythe[/name_f]
[name_f]Bethan[/name_f]
[name_f]Signy[/name_f]
[name_u]Dagny[/name_u]

my DH and I have very different styles, but we have managed to find names we both like. there is usually some compromise or overlap, you just have to find it.

I did this by going through a baby name book (just to limit the pool a bit) and making a list of every name I liked and wouldn’t mind naming a child. then he went through and marked any name he liked on that list. I don’t know if that will work for you, but it did for us.

Great suggestions above! Especially love [name_u]Arden[/name_u], [name_f]Bronwen[/name_f] and [name_f]Briar[/name_f] for you.

More ideas that marry your fanciful/nature vibe with his cutesy/preppy/unisex style:

[name_f]Avalon[/name_f]
[name_u]Bellamy[/name_u]
[name_f]Brynn[/name_f]
[name_f]Bryony[/name_f]
[name_m]Calloway[/name_m]
[name_f]Elowen[/name_f]
[name_u]Everly[/name_u]
[name_f]Harlow[/name_f]
[name_u]Haven[/name_u]
[name_m]Hawthorn[/name_m]
[name_u]Larkin[/name_u]
[name_u]Linden[/name_u] (same sound as [name_m]Lyndon[/name_m], but with a tree connection)
Lorien
[name_f]Marin[/name_f]
[name_u]Rainy[/name_u]
[name_u]Shiloh[/name_u]
[name_u]Winslow[/name_u]

I second the suggestion of [name_f]Endellion[/name_f]! It’s the name of a Cornish saint and village, and a bit Elvish-sounding, and his picks [name_u]Blakely[/name_u], [name_m]Lyndon[/name_m] and [name_u]Campbell[/name_u] are place names (or surnames that originated from place names, to be precise).

Since he likes the -lee ending ([name_u]Briley[/name_u], Novalee, [name_u]Blakely[/name_u], [name_m]Macaulay[/name_m]), what about Loxley, Mabli or [name_f]Romilly[/name_f]? Loxley is a place associated with [name_u]Robin[/name_u] Hood, and can be “Loxie” for short. Mabli is the Welsh form of [name_f]Mabel[/name_f], pronounced “[name_f]MAB[/name_f] lee.” Other ideas:
