    Default Help with classic names to go with last name

    This is our 3rd baby and I'm really struggling this time!

    Both of our girls have classic French names that are also very common in English.

    Our last name has two 'Ls' and for some reason all my favorite classic names, both male and female, have 'L' sounds.

    So these are out:
    Oliver
    Stella

    Anabelle - I'm still considering because the L sound doesn't seem as strong.

    Help with suggestions pls!!

    The girl name I want to lock in for this Bub (even though my husband is umming and ahhing about it) is Adeline. Still has an L but not very strong.

    Don't know if it's French but if I ever have another girl I think I would have trouble going past the name Briar as in Briar-Rose like sleeping beauty

    Claire, Esme or Juliet for girls
    Henry, Theodora or Julian for boys?

    All French names...Without knowing your last name, the Ls aren't too strong sounding?
