Name help please

I'm almost 24 weeks pregnant with our second DD and I'm having a terrible time coming up with a short list of names. DD #1 is Hannah Marie and my name is Sarah. I like names like that-classic/timeless, definitely feminine, not prone to shortening/using a nickname. I'd love first name suggestions (we'll pick a family name for the middle that goes with the first name). TIA.

We had similar parameters for naming our girls... They ended up being Clara and Lydia. I also love Grace, Faith, Hope, Lily...

Re: Name help please

I'm a big fan of classic/timeless names. Our kids all have middle names after family members too.

I have an Elizabeth Ann & a Josephine Ashley. Those are both shortened more often than not though - Liz & Josie.

Evelyn Kathy & Megan Elizabeth are on my future list. I'll shorten those to Evie & Megs for nicknames - but you don't necessarily have to shorten any name!
