So I've had TONS of names I liked, and DH shot down almost every single one of them. We FINALLY have narrowed it down to:

Riley Ginette

Heidi Lane

Amelia Kay

Riley is DH's middle name, and Ginette is my dearly departed aunt's name.
Heidi and Amelia have no particular meaning, but Lane is my FIL's middle name, and Kay is DH's grandmother's name. I'm leaning a bit more towards Riley, but I'm afraid it's too "popular" and may not fit as well when she's 40. Which do you like better?

I forgot to mention that Amelia is my DH's #1 choice. However, I have a "thing" with names more than 3 syllables and would like to call her by a nickname. I LOVE "Millie" and many more Amelia nicknames (except Amy) and my husband shot down all nicknames. I'm thinking that may ultimately throw Amelia out of the running.

While I'm happy and all that DH is so invested in the naming process, I'm getting VERY frustrated with him!

SO shot down calling my youngest, Francisco Javier, by his middle name. Well now everyone calls him Javier, including daddy, so yo never know. I'm not a fan of any of them really, but I'm more of a unique or Spanish name person. I saw go with the one with the most meaning!

I love Amelia Kay, but not sure since you may take it out of the running.

I like Amelia Kay the best. I love all the possible nicknames too. I don't think you should take it out of the running.

Amelia Kay gets my vote. We must think alike because Amelia was on my list of girl names too, and Millie was a nickname I was planning to use. We're having a boy so DH and I never had to bicker about girls names, but I do like all of the possible names you're thinking of. Another nickname for Amelia I was thinking of was Mia, but that's pretty popular too.
