Help choosing a name for our 2nd girlie


We seem to be struggling narrowing down our list of girls names so I need some help. I don't think 'the name' is on our list and so I'm still on the hunt for the perfect name.

We like 2-3 syllables as this goes best with our surname.
We're not having a middle name.
We don't like common names but also don't want anything too unusual (if that even makes sense)
We like the kind of old school names that seem to be making a 'come back' but are also keen on modern names as DD1 is more modern.
We're Scottish so I find a lot of names don't work with our accent

Any help appreciated?

Right now I like Margot and Lucinda (Lucy) best.

If I go with Margot Lucinda, the name meaning would be Pearl Graceful Light.

DH likes the symbolism of Margot (it was my very brave Grandmother's name) but thinks the name sounds ugly.

Do you think Lucinda Margot sounds better?

I like classic names, obviously. Not a modernist here.

I also like Carol, Diana, Helen, Laura, and Carla.

I have Annabel, so obviously I love that! There seem to be much less of them than Isobel/Isabelle at the moment.

Miss Maple - my real name is Lucinda Grace but almost everyone calls me Lucy. I like it as a name! In your list I also like Laura. Not a huge fan of Margot though.
