Need some help choosing a name for our baby girl due Jan 26th. This is our second child; we have a son whose name is Grady Stephen. Last name is MacNamara. My husband and I have been discussing names for months and have a list going, but just can't settle on a name and now DH isn't sure he likes any of them. Here's our list: Carolyn; Ellen; Nola; Alice; Erin; Lucy. I also like Etta and DH likes Althea. Names we've discussed and rejected: Evelyn; Rowan; Eleanor; any B names (don't want initials BM); any name that ends in -ara (too rhymie with last name). Names of nieces so can't use: Olivia; Abigail; Emma; Laura; Natalie. We'd like to use River as a middle name, so long as it flows well (no pun intended).
I guess I'm looking for any feedback on our list names and also any suggestions I can bring to DH.
Thanks for the help!

I enjoyed reading everyone's comments, and getting such positive feedback for Nola really helped swing us back around to the first name on our list. And as much as we loved River, we decided to go with a more traditional middle name, choosing to honor an aunt and great-aunt of mine. So Nola Catherine was born on February 2nd, our little Groundhog Day baby.
