I am in need of some suggestions.....im desperate!!!!

Im nearing the end of my 2nd trimester & am completely stumped for a girls name. I've always had lists & favourites but right now, nothing seems 'right'

To give you an idea of my taste - boys list
Milo
Louis
Rafferty
Cy
Arlo
Ned
but we've pretty well settled on Louis if its a boy.

Girls names i like
Poppy
Stella
Daisy (worried these 3 are becoming a bit too well known)
Iris (dh says noooo way)
avalon

I do like names that arent too popular, even a little different hence why im a little hesitant to use any of the first 3. any suggestions for girls names would be so appreciated, i am soooo stuck!!!
TIA

I have a Louis and he is super dooper awesome! Plus, I have a niece called Iris, who is just divine...

But I digress...

I feel that although I love your first three girls names, for me - they are too popular now to consider using them.

Avalon is totally NMS.

Louis would have been named Alba, were he born a no tail. I also love; Clementine, Francesca, Roo. I'll come back and add more when I can think of them!

Oh yes, Celeste is lovely! Celestine was also on my list, after my favorite books as a child, Ernest and Celestine. It seems no one else has heard of these books though, I was obsessed!

Also, my other niece is named Roma. I think this is rather lovely too.
