So I've tried the Nymbler and a few other websites, but I can't refine my search enough. Our last name starts with an A, which basically rules out names ending with A. It also has a th, so names ending in th sound really goofy too. (but I really loved Ruth) We have no idea about gender. We only want simple traditional names with common spelling...

anyone want to make us a list of options??

Hmm... that leaves things pretty wide open. If you haven't already looked, you might want to check out http://www.nameberry.com. You can look up all kinds of name lists, such as traditional, etc.

Thanks for the link. It's true it is wide open, but because I can't limit the search to "no A endings" or "no th sounds" it gets frustrating fast. Seriously, there are sooooo many lovely names that end in A, especially for girls.

Any one else have any ideas?

If Ruth is one you really like, what about a longer version of of the name, such as Ruthanne or Ruthie?
