Need Name Suggestions for a girl

Jacquie - posted on 03/15/2011 ( 2 moms have responded )




We are being considered as adoptive parents for an 8 yo girl. We are not fond of her current name AND we have someone with that name already. There are many people who do not agree with renaming an adopted child. I do not want those opinions; I have adopted twice and know what I am doing. I do not have any girls so this is kind of new. I am not fond of trendy, nor "star" names. Miss E is black, we are white, but she will not be our only black child. She is said to be very "girlie" and small. Thank you

Have you asked her what she would like her name to be? I have a friend who was adopted at the age of 10 and they changed her name. She provided them with 2 or 3 names that she liked and they suggested 2 that they had thought about. Together they picked her name, and she is very happy with it. They also chose to make her first name into a middle name, so that she could keep that part of her.

Since I don't know the little girl, I can't really suggest any names, I think at this point she has developed a personality and that would play into the choices that I would make. Sorry if this doesn't help, just thought that I would share the little bit of "knowledge" that I have on the subject.
