Name help

We don't know the name of this baby due in August (if I had money I would say girl) I am looking for more names that are unique but not so much so that people will hate it or not be able to pronounce it. I have 2 DD's Bella Rayne (right after we named her the name became huge and I wish we named her something less popular) and Lyra Barbara. These are names I have so far:

Girls;

Eliora. Love
Winnie. Philemena
Everly
Elowyn Avita. Elora
Harper. Harlow. Piper
Audra Darcy



Boys;
Dorian. Emerick
Ryker. Karsten
Orrin Rowan
Bennett
Orson

Re: Name help

Personally my favs from your list are

Eliora Love
Everly (i like Harper or Harlow as a middle name to go with it)
Elowyn ... though this makes me think Lord of the Rings

and for the boys I'm not as sure but I noticed some lit. names

I like Bennett. Could Harlow be used as a boy's name?

Re: Name help

Really like your names! Harper and Piper are a bit popular around us, you may want to take that into consideration. Not SUPER popular, but I can think of 3 Pipers and 4 Harpers that we know. My favorite of your names are probably Elowyn and Orson. How do you pronounce Eliora? I'm reading it as Ellie-or-uh. Thats pretty too, just not sure if I'm saying it right.

I looked up the pronunciation and it can go two ways Ellie-or-uh or El-lore-uh so the I would be silent I guess or maybe I would take that out. I don't know any Harpers or Pipers in my area but I know a few Peppers lol. I actually like pepper-ann for a name. Elowyn reminds me of Arwen from LOTR for sure. I kind of like using Emerick for the middle name boy or girl. You think it's too masculine to be used for a girls middle name.

I really like Chandler as a girls or boys name. Not common but not too unusual either.

Funny that you mention Emerick, DP has a cousin named Emeric and I had never heard it until I met him!

Ohhhh I like it even better as El-lore-uh. I think pronounced that way it goes in my top choices of the names you listed.

I never heard of it until I dug around my geneology charts. Funny thing is his dad was named "green-Leaf" and his son was "Everhard" lol so I'm not the only one who like weird names lol.

I really like Elora and my husband is iffy on it.
