It's time for another name my baby post! There have been some great posts on this in the past, so I thought I'd throw it out there.
Some info: We live in New England, our last name is obviously German (starts with an L, ends with "nn"), we're nerdy/outdoorsy types. We're leaning strongly toward Frances as a middle name.
Absolute NO's: Anything starting with a K (overabundance in family), anything ending with an -ee sound, must not be too popular
Our preferences: Names of two syllables or less, strong sounding female names, names that were popular 100+ years ago but are more obscure today. My husband has a preference for nature names, which I'm open to, but it seems hard to find many non-hippie sounding ones.
Top 3 Contenders - feel free to give opinions:
A couple more we've considered:
Maya (is too popular in our state so has been eliminated)
