Audrey and Rose are both lovely. If you love Poppy but it’s out due to a relative, how about Penelope nn Poppy? That would give you some distance from the relative. Also, wow, that is a LONG list of names that are out due to relatives. Are they all first names? Are they all relatives that you see regularly? I wonder if ruling out so many names is what’s leaving you feeling dissatisfied with Audrey and Rose. Maybe you could add some of the “out” names back in. Or consider names without worrying about who has that name for now, and then evaluate the favorites on a case-by-case basis.
This might be in total left-field, but would a double-barrel hit the right note and distinguish the more popular names? Audrey Rose, Willa Grace (although do you hear Will&Grace hmm), Lila Grace, Lila Rose…
I think Audrey and Rose are both lovely choices. I would throw most of my support behind Rose, except I hesitate to combine a word first name with a word surname. If that doesn’t bother you, then Rose would be my top choice. Gus, Hugh, and Rose.
If you took The Exorcist's aesthetic, but inserted terrible performances, and swapped out thorough religious themes for half baked ideas about reincarnation.... you could probably still make a better movie than Audrey Rose. Robert Wise was no stranger to vacuous, overly sentimental storytelling (see: The Sound of Music) but he really outdid himself here. That's not to say he didn't have talent (after all, he made The Day The Earth Stood Still, which, for my money is one of the best sci-fi films ever made) but his direction in this film is choppy and even downright questionable in some scenes. Not even a younger, spry Anthony Hopkins can save this cheap imitation from itself.
