Help with girls names!

Starting another thread... But now that I'm actually pregnant I need to get serious! Plus we all love talking about baby names right?

I want my husband and I to each make a list of our top girl names and see where we match up, and I want mine to be more final when we do this.

Middle name is Jane. Last name looks like Marrino.

Names I like:
Ava
Amelia
Savannah
Sophia/Sophie
Lila (lie-luh)
Leighton
Bridget
Emory
Hannah
Eloise
Maisie
Madelyn
Harper

Names I can't use: Charlotte, Grace, Ella, Elizabeth, Isla, Olivia, Caroline, any name with nn Addie, Hadley, Peyton, Erica

I want a pretty, easy to say/spell/pronounce name that is not super common- but I love the common ones which sucks. I also think it's important that the name ages well. ETA: 2 or more syllables.

Give me your best! :)

    Question- is Maisie a weird name for a grown woman though? I LOVE it for a little girl, but what would you think if you met a 45 yo named Maisie?

    You've got some good names and some not so good. Most are nice but too popular which will make her one of six assembly line named kids in her class. My personal fav is Lila.
  • Love Ava and Sophie is my DD :-)
