Classic names

    My friend is due in September with a girl and is having a very hard time finding a name. Her and hubby like the name Riley but they don’t love it. She doesn’t like names with S’s in then either (she has a slight lisp)
    Can anyone help and give some suggestions? I’ve given a million but maybe some other opinions would be helpful! Thanks

    These are a bit different in style to Riley, but they’re what I’d call classic. I’m not sure how much popularity matters, so I’ve included popular names too:
    Faye/Fae
    Arabella
    Matilda
    Audrey
    Jane
    Elizabeth (Plus variations, Eliza, Beth, Lilibeth etc.)
    Mary
    Catherine
    Lydia
    Marie
    Emma
    Emily
    Evelyn
    Hazel
    Amelia
    Annabeth
    Anne
    Anna
    Ana (Ah-na)
    Lillian
    Lily
    Clara (Clar rhymes with Car)
    Claire
    Georgiana/Georgina/Georgia
    Imogen
    Wren
    Edith
    Enid
    Victoria
    Helena
    Isabella/Bella/Belle
    Rose
    Rosemary/Rosemarie
    Lyra
    Fleur
    Henrietta
    Aria
    Liliana
    Tabitha
    Jana

    That’s all I can think of atm. Hope it helps!

    Thanks so much! That was a huge list, but I showed it to my friend and she isn’t a fan of any!
    Haha I really don’t know what she’s looking for and either does she. I would love some more suggestions to pass along, hoping one will just stick out for her. Any suggestions from anyone would be greatly appreciated :)

    Yeah, I’m a little confused if the thread is “classic” names but Riley seems more trendy as a FN … can she give a few more suggestions of names she likes just to get a better idea of her style?

    Sorry, I guess I should have specified more. She likes Riley(which I know isn’t a classic name) but she really dislikes trendy names, such as Piper for example. So I am looking for classic subtle simple names to pass along since she isn’t a tan of more unique trendy names
