Hi ladies
I know that there are many, many name experts on here, and I need your help.

We have one DD. Her name is Tabitha (DP's surname) (my surname). The format will be the same for our new bub, i.e. (first name) (DP's surname) (my surname). DP's surname is a very common, easily spelt two-syllable English surname. Mine is a one-syllable Welsh surname.

We do not know if it is a boy or a girl, so we need options for both.

We do not agree on any names!
Some sample preferences from each of us are:

DP:
Harriet

Manning, Saul

Me:
Hilda, Clementine
Felix, Sebastian

Has anyone got any other suggestions that might appeal to both of us?
Thanks so much.
