Girl's name- HELP!

Had this one been a boy, we had everything figured out. But, of course, we are having a girl, so we have no clue! LOL!!! DH and I couldn't agree on DDs name, and now here we are again! So I thouhght I would see what you think: (Long list, I know...) We already have a Corinne Elizabeth

Caroline
Nora
Cecillia
Clarice (too "Silence of the Lambs?")
Clara (Is that the cow on Mickey Mouse?)
Vera
Lillian
Adeline
Gwendolyn
Cecily
Gracelynn (sound too much like Grace Land?)
Maryella

I like 'old fashioned' names, anything else?
Clarissa

I like Cecilia or Lillian best (depends if you want to stick with the C-names or not)... and yeah, I think Gracelynn is a bit too Graceland-ish and Clarabelle is the Mickey Mouse cow LOL Smile

I like lots of your names: Caroline, Nora, Cecilia, Clara, Adeline, Gwendolyn, and Clarissa.

I really like Cecily, knew the cutest little girl with that name once (she's grown now lol)

I like Lillian, but Lily is so overdone for me.

I don't care for Clarice or Vera (wasn't that Norm's wife on Cheers? lol), Gracelynn, or Maryella.

Of the names listed my favorites are Lillian, Gwendolyn, and Cecily.

Clarice is too Silence of the Lambs for me and Gracelynn does remind me of Grace Land. I do like names that end with Lynn though, so have you considered Kailyn or Ashlyn (love this name).

Good luck finding a name.

I love Gracelynn, very beautiful and feminine! Yes to both your questions though: Clarice is too Silence of the Lambs and Clara is the name of the Disney cow lol!!

I like Clara and Cecily best as choices for your girl - of course Nora is top of the list since that's my daughter's name but for a sister to Corinne I think changing up the vowel sound looks better to me.

I'm partial to Vera because that was one of OUR names back before we knew we were on team blue!

But objectively, I think Corrine and Adeline sounds wonderful!

Caroline -- like it, but very popular
Nora -- like it
Cecillia -- like it
Clarice (too "Silence of the Lambs?") -- yes, it's creepy. hate it.
Clara (Is that the cow on Mickey Mouse?) -- not a fan of this name
Vera -- not my taste
Lillian -- like it, but lily is very, very popular right now
Adeline -- not my taste
Gwendolyn -- like it
Cecily -- like it
Gracelynn (sound too much like Grace Land?) -- yes, too elvis. don't like it
Maryella -- awkward spelling -- I like Mariella better as the spelling, but I don't love the name

I like 'old fashioned' names, anything else?

Vivian is a nice name that fits with the others you listed.
Meredith is another that I like and fits with your list.
I also like Edith and think it fits with your style.

I like Caroline Wink Not because it's my name, I just think it's a good name.

Other suggestions-
Audrey, Claudine, Agnes, Agatha, Matilda, Esme.

I like old fashioned names too. My girls are Amelia and Lucy.
