Who wants to name my twins?

My fraternal twin girls are due in early December & we're going through a bit of a name crisis. We went to the hospital w/ a "short list" for DD and it worked out, but we've been living apart for the last 5 weeks, DP started a new job, we're trying to plan the move, etc., so our attention has been elsewhere. So I'm taking suggestions.

We're looking at family names for middles...possibly Leah, Fern, Violet, Irene, Hazel & a couple others that I'm forgetting. We use a hyphenated last name for LOs & DP's last name ends w/ an -er, which makes a lot of names awkward.

DD is Elliott Frances (DP's last)-(my last). We like gender-neutral-ish names that are not popular...like, not in the top 1000 (for girls) unusual. Maybe a bit quirky, but not cre8iv spellings. Greer had been a contender, but a particular person has ruined it (I hate when that happens!). Likewise, Logan had been a thought, but DP decided it's too popular & rising in popularity too quickly. We were just tossing around names last weekend & DP suggested Maizy, while I suggested Dagny...and then we quickly realized that Dagny & Maizy sounds an awful lot like Cagney & Lacey I think we've gotten ourselves into a name spiral, help!

I love the name Leah, just saying, its a beautiful name. If I have two daughters it will be Junia Marie (June for short) and Leah _____.

I like Ever and Harbor/Harbour. Llewella and Seraphina. That's what I would do for twin girls...

Re: Who wants to name my twins?

Since you already have an E, are you against E's, or for E's, or neutral?

Eliza, Cecilia, Francesca, Allegra, Genevieve, Nicola, Beatrice, Bronwyn, Eugenia, Maxine

I'm a pretty big fan of Maizy/Maisie, I think it's pretty timeless.

Did Brooke Shields ruin a name for you too?

April Shower and August Storm. Ok, so those don't fit your rules of family names. The 2nd was a student, and the first is a combination of 2 first names of students. Could be fun though.

No names from this year stick out though. Trying to think of GN names and nothing is really coming.

Some old family names from my family are:
Idella (said eye-della)
Isadore
Francis

I see a lot of book/movie/tv names I recognize...

I like Hazel, Fern and Violet. Or another flower or color name w/ Violet:

Rose
Lily
Poppy
Ruby
Indigo
Scarlett

I do like Quinn a lot.

Evelyn and Lillian would be great twin names or middle names.
