I like Agatha. It's definitely not too safe!
I also like Imogen but even tho I've never met one, it feels safe like Josephine. I love Clementine. You have good taste in names.
I don't think you could go wrong with either Agatha or Clementine.

I have tossed Agatha around before, so I obviously I love it. I also love Imogen& think either make a great sister to Eleanor. I like Clementine too, but seems frilly next to Eleanor. As much as I like Josephine it is the "safer" choice- not that that is bad if you love the name. My picks would be Agatha, Imogen, Josephine then Clementine.

I'm not quite sure...I like the quirkiness, but I'm not sure how it would do in everyday life.

The only problem I see with Imogen is people like me saying it imma-JEEN. My grandmother had a friend named Imogen and growing up I always heard it that way. Then I grew up, moved up north and now I realize it is IMMA-jen.

I met a lady with a daughter Imogen a few weeks ago at the preschool open house (twins Benjamin and Imogen, if that is of any interest) and she pursed her lips at me when I said it wrong. Immediately I realized my error, but hello, there were 20 years in southern Indiana hearing it imma-JEEN that were working against me. Just a thought.

Clementine is adorable and even though *supposedly* it's on the uptick in crunchy culture, I personally do not know anyone with that name.

I think Agatha is great! It's unexpected but spunky.

To me, Agatha sounds too old-ladyish. It reminds me of Hag when I hear the name. It is nms.

I do LOVE Clementine, though!
