    Girl name help!

    We still have some time (March 2019), but it usually takes a good 2-3 months (or the whole 9 months for DS3...) for DH and I to agree to a name.

    Our boys are Lucas, Matthew, and Ethan. And our DD that died before the boys, was Olivia.

    Even though I love the names Brooke/Brooklyn- they are out because really similar to our last name.

    My favorite favorite name is Charlotte but DH is not going for it and I'm not sure I'm going to be able to convince him.
    We both kinda like Katelyn (spelling tbd), but it was Olivia's middle name and not sure we will end up going for it.

    So any suggestions?!

    im so sorry you lost your little girl

    i find girls names so hard, our DD1 died mid-pregnancy and our 2 living daughters both have a part of their sister's name as their middle name. (DD2 has DD1's first name as her middle name and DD3 has DD1's middle name as her middle name)

    you havent specifically said this but if you do want to link baby girl's first name to Olivia you could use a name that is similar, Olive, Livia, Oliviane and Olivienne immediately come to mind for Olivia and Lydia and Lilia are standing out as similar to me.

    Another option if you want a link is to choose a name that has a similar meaning or style, Olivia means Olive Tree so this opens up nature names and also long feminine names Sophia, Isabelle/Isabella, Serafina etc

    Brooke is so pretty, Ava comes to mind as another short sleek nature name

    Katelyn is a variant of Catherine so you've got lots of similar names if Katelyn itself doesnt feel right. Catherine, Kathleen, Kate, Katie, Kayleigh to name a few!! all could be either C or K.

    Charlotte is gorgeous im sorry dh wont budge on it for you what about Clara or Colette? more classic girl names i can think of off the top of my head Alice, Elizabeth, Annabelle, Rose

    I hope you find the perfect name soon enjoy every second with your new daughter when she arrives xx

    Have you considered Caroline? That seems to evoke Olivia, Charlotte, and Katelyn to me, and very much in line with your boy's lovely classic names.

    I like Alice <3 Also Amy, Grace and any variations of Catherine. As a variant, you may open list of female names and try to spell each, your daughter may give you a sign what name does she like

    One of my favourite names is Claire. Or Clare. Very classic, and simple. I absolutely love classic names.

    Top of my head for a classical simple names Camilla, Karen, Coraline to swing with the Caroline idea of atomic... Leah... Sara... If he won't go with Charlotte, could Lottie be more to his tastes maybe ?

    Sorry I read this when you responded and just realized I didn't reply.

    I've given up on Charlotte, dh is not going to go for it. We have a good friend w a daughter named Caroline so not sure I could do it.
    Caitlyn (spelling tbd), Elizabeth (not sure what nickname we would use...maybe Eliza..), and Harper are the three names we can agree we both like so far but still hoping something will start feeling like the right name, that we can agree on....nothing so far.

    I vote Elizabeth! I think itís such a pretty name for a sweet little girl. But also has plenty of nicknames.. Lizzy, Libby.. Beth etc


    (Itís also my name, which I swear has not affected my vote )

    Good luck!
