Third Tri and still no name need FN suggestions

After several lists, polls, etc DH and I are no closer to naming our little girl. So far the front runner names are Isla Jean and Kate Rosalind. However, I really wanted to use my grandmother's name which is Olive as a middle name but it doesn't flow well with Isla or Kate. Please suggest first names that may go well with Olive as a minute. TIA!

    Kathleen or Kathryn Olive (and call her Kate)
    Samantha Olive
    Caroline Olive
    Diana Olive
    Reese Olive

    Personally, I don't think Isla Olive is terrible, and even Kate Olive isn't so bad that I would avoid the family connection. Isla Olive has grown on me even since typing all of this out. I think it's cute.

    I would use Isla Olive, it might not "flow" perfectly but it's still cute & honoring a relative is a nice story for a MN.

    Agree entirely.

    Totally personal opinion, but I think using a NN like Kate without the full name (Kathleen, Katherine, Kathryn or whatever) is strange. I'd go with Kathryn Olive like another poster suggested, and call her Kate.
