ideas for a girl name that goes with Asher?

hi ladies! i am expecting #2, and don't know yet if it's a boy or a girl, but DH and i are already talking about names. we suspect it's a girl, and we are completely stumped on a girl's name! if it's a boy, we want to name him Oliver, which was my great-grandpa's name. DS1 is named Asher. we always loved Ava for a girl, but now have two good friends with daughters by that name. the popularity is a turn-off to us now (although it's STILL a beautiful name!). we love shorter, simple names with no ambiguity regarding spelling, etc., but something you don't hear every day. we love to use family names, but a quick scan of the family tree didn't turn up any good female options. our last name is Johnson, if that helps. anyway, i'd love to hear any suggestions you have!!!

I have two little girls cousins named Asher and Avery. That was what first came to mind for me. Smile Avery is similar to Ava, but not nearly as popular.

When I was a teen, I babysat a pair of twins named Asher and Eden. I loved how their names fit together.

Did you want another name that starts with an A or does it matter?

I also like Eden, and Ava really is beautiful even if it is popular. Bella would have been my choice if this baby was a girl. I also like Arden... if you're going for an "A" name...

I love the name Eden. I would use it myself except it rhymes with our last name.

Eden is really pretty. I like that! I'm also liking Clara lately. My best friend's daughter is Avery, so probably wouldn't use that, but I do like it. I'm thinking I want to stay away from A names, but it really doesn't matter. If we end up falling in love with an A name, then that's fine!

Can't wait to check out that name site! I've been looking at, but haven't gotten too inspired yet.

:eek: OMG! That is so crazy. As soon as I read this thread, I instantly thought of Clara (which is one of the names we considered for DD2). I read through the replies before posting. That's so funny. But I love Clara!!

Oliver is SO popular here, is it not in the US? It's definitely in the top 3 here.

I consider Asher a "trendy and modern" name, so I would go with similar for a girl- Harper, Imogen, Ruby, Isabella, Chloe, Lily, Sienna, Abigail.
