    Ava - I like this but becoming very common
    Billie - NO! She's a girl, give her a girl's name or risk potentially bullying in school or an association with hill billy trailer trash
    Brooke - pretty
    Cassie - Cassandra (but you could call her cassie). Cute
    Courtney - Cute
    Ebony - NO! Unless you want to feed into ethic stereotypes
    Elly - Cute but kind of an older name.
    Faith - Cute
    Georgia-Jade - not sure about the G-J sounds flowing together. Very hillbilly
    Grace - cute
    Gracie-mae - Sounds hillbilly & backwoods
    Lacey - Cute
    Lexi - Cute but this is the nickname/shortened version. If you do this you should give her the real like like Alexis or Alexandria and call her Lexi to shorten it.

    Libby - no
    Lola - cute but better as a middle name
    Maisey - cute but reminds me of the country
    Mercedes - no, she's not a car, she's a person
    Olivia - cute
    Ruby - cute but different
    Summer -no
    Savannah - pretty
    Tallulah - NO!!!! WTH she's not a waterfall

    You could do first & middle names. One of your fave names and then one of his. Ava Brooke, Courtney Grace, Savannah Faith...

    I'm going to guess you guys are from the south...am I right? :)

    I would have never guessed :) you have a lot of names that are common/popular in the southern part of the USA. Especially with the names Billie, Tallulah, Ruby, Georgia, Gracie Mae...etc

    But since you don't live in the south, a lot of those names won't have the common stereotype associated with them (like how they are here in the USA).

    I'll go for the UK perspective on these then!! Will you be giving baby a middle name? Just because maybe if you are, with the double barrelled surname I'd personally go for a shorter first name.

    Ava - I do like this, getting quite popular now though
    Billie - not keen, reminds me of Billie Piper, not necessarily a bad thing but to me Billy is a boy's name
    Brooke - quite like it
    Cassie - not keen
    Courtney - sorry but really don't like this one, more to do with the people I know who have daughters called this rather than the name, a personal association thing but around here is quite 'chavvy'
    Ebony - as above!
    Elly - as above!
    Faith - really like this
    Georgia-Jade - like Georgia on it's own
    Grace/ Gracie-mae - biased on this one as my daughter is called Grace, it's gotten very popular but I still love it (not keen on Gracie-Mae)
    Lacey - sorry, don't like it
    Lexi - not keen
    Libby - quite like it although I'd use it as a nickname I think
    Lola - very sweet, reminds me of Charlie and Lola (kids programme), really like it
    Maisey - cute although one of those names I wonder how it will suit a teenager/older person
    Mercedes - sorry, really dislike this
    Olivia - love it (again, quite popular but if that doesn't bother you then it's a fab name)
    Ruby - cute (popular!)
    Summer - this is nice too, fairly popular but it's a sweet name
    Savannah - sorry, don't like it
    Tallulah - not keen, sounds sweet but think it would get shortened and not sure what to (Tally?!).

    I'm fairly traditional with my name tastes though - favourites of the ones you've said are Ava, Brooke, Faith, Grace and Olivia I think.

    Ava
    I love this name, it's really cute but as others have said it's quite popular
    Billie
    I actually like this name, but with your surname it's a bit much, Billie Willoughby-Grey?
    Brooke
    This would be in my top 5!
    Cassie
    Again i really like this name, But i think others you've mentioned are bettter :)
    Courtney
    I like this, but associate with a mature lady rather than a young girl!
    Ebony
    Nice, but not to my taste.
    Elly
    I like this but prefer the spelling Ellie or Elle
    Faith
    Not too sure on this one
    Georgia-Jade
    Lovely, one of my top 5 - but without the Jade.
    Grace/ Gracie-mae
    I like Grace on it's own
    Lacey
    This is my best friends surname, so i don't really associate it with first names
    Lexi
    Not really keen for personal reasons lol
    Libby
    Always loved this name! But with your surname again, libby willoughby? too many b's
    Lola
    Love this! One of my top 5 :)
    Maisey
    I like this, but prefer Macy or Macey
    Mercedes
    Not keen - reminds me of the girl out of hollyoaks..
    Olivia
    Lovely, i also like Liv for short :)
    Ruby
    I love this name
    Summer
    I really like this, but not sure it would suit when they are older
    Savannah
    Cute :)
    Tallulah
    Not sure on this one, sounds a bit too fancy

    I really like Georgia - Without the Jade, or just Jade without the Georgia :)

    So Georgia Willoughby-Grey is my favourite!

    A lot of these names are pretty, but don't go with the surname. I think you need a shorter name, like Ava or Faith or Brooke. My favourite is Faith :)
