    Default Suggestions for names similar to these?

    DH and I are finding it really hard to come up with names. We have 3 girls names we both like (but aren't completely in love with) and one boys name. The boys name is a family name and it's not something I would have chosen personally, but unless we find something we both really love, I think it will be the one we use.

    To give you an idea of the type of names we like, we want something that is not SUPER popular (not in the top 10, definitely), but also quite traditional.

    For girls, the three we like are Molly, Darcy and Audrey.

    For boys, the one we have so far is Matthew.

    We are running low on inspiration. What are some names you love?

    Have you tried Nymbler? You can pop in names you like and it spits out options. I also like Nameberry which used to have the if you like x name and wouls give a list of other names.

    I like: Genevieve, Juniper, Emma, Eleanor, Celia, Rosemary, Maeve, Elizabeth as a start for girls.

    Boys: Christopher, Spencer, Alec, Finnegan, Alexander, George, Michael, Patrick, Nicholas, Harry

    I LOVE Audrey.
    If we were to have another girl we liked Mackenzie and Mikayla

    A boy might be Hayden but I find picking boy names so much harder than girls

    Thanks @smallpotatoes! I haven't heard of Nymbler, but have wasted many hours trawling through Nameberry

    I love your lists, too. Patrick and Finnegan both stand out to me ... I'll suggest them to DH!

    If we were to have another baby (never gonna happen ) I like Clara, Sasha for a girl or boy (maybe spelt Sacha for a boy) and Max for a boy. I like James for a boy too but DH vetoed it.
