    Guinevere
    Olwen
    Epona

    the surname is Kelsey.

    The names are different but really sorry I don't like them and you have to think about when she starts school and what the other kids would say.
    I was going to call Summer Roxy-leigh but the girls here told me they didnt like the name and thank god I listened lol

    I picked none :( they're nice names but not very realistic for a real person to live with, if that makes sense.

    My OH suggested genevieve and its like nooooo I can't even pronounce it

    All of them are kind of hard names to hear, if that makes sense.

    Of all of them, I like Guinevere, but its very very olde English (Welsh). I'd be inclined to go for a more modern Gwen or Gwyneth. Both lovely names and much easier to grow up with and live with. Both are still from Welsh origins. Although saying that Epona is from Latin but tbh it doesn't roll off the tongue well at all.

    Maybe one of them would fit as a middle name if you could agree on a first name?

    Being the queen of odd names.... ;) I love Olwen... but I am sure it's more of a boys name :think:

    other odd names you can suggest to your OH...

    Annara
    Ayra
    Bryin
    Islin
    Juno
    Xanthe
    Echo
    Divinity

    :D I like Guinevere is nice... I like it just its going to be a pain to spell.... :) And well Tia struggles with her surname atm and it has less letters.

    Tbh all the other names I know of have been done to death, and I didn't want Mae or Summer or Chole because I all know little girls around 6,7,8 with these popular names and they are kinda obnoxious... and just couldn't place my kid with the name. And an Abigale hit my little girl... she was a nasty spoilt little brat.

    Have a look around... but certainly don't name you kid something you are not both happy with...
