I am 7 months pregnant with my second child and we know (as much as one can:) that it is going to be a girl but we are having the HARDEST time trying to find a girls name! Thought it would be easy with a girl, my other child is a boy named Ethan, but we can't agree on anything! We are looking for something unusual but not strange...suggestions would be great! :)

Ahhh... the name dilemma! I have always had luck with family names. Some variation on your mom's name or Mother-in-Law's name (mom is Mary, you do Meredith and call her "Merry")? Perhaps one of their maiden names is a great one to use as a first name? You can use dad and grandpa names too in their feminine version. Theresa instead of Ted (but you can call her Teddi if you like that) that kind of thing.

A lot of parents like the sound of a first name and last name that start with the same letter... so perhaps a first name that has that.

So fun choosing a name for a baby who will be here soon! Have fun! And let us know if you choose!

I just have a couple suggestions. Make sure the ending of her name isnt the same as the beginning of the last name, otherwise it will all run together like one word. Check the initials of the name you chose, 1st middle and last to make sure it doesnt spell a weird word. My sisters initials were going to be ASS, so my parents changed her middle name to start w/ a C instead. Think of grandparents first and middle names as options. Do you want the babys name to start w/ an E? Do you want it to have a nickname...some names can be shortened and butchered to things you do not prefer. Like Nathaniel can become Nate, which may not be likable by you or your husband.
Personally I like names that you dont hear often, but arent weird. I do not like common names at all. And most certainly would not name my daughter Bertha or Gertrude, lol. Name choosing is such a personal choice, have fun choosing. I hope these tips were helpful in narrowing down your choice.

We had great difficulty choosing our youngest girls name she was 2 weeks old before she was named!!!.... we couldn't agree and were like you and wanted something a bit different but not too out there so in the end we called her Brigette Rose her big sister is Holly Maree. I really like the girls names Willow, Lailani, and Maye. Good luck and dont stress too much, we had fun with the family after Brigette was born trying to name her, like I said it took 2 weeks after she waas born!!

I am also pregnant with my 2nd child. We have a daughter named Ivy Briann and this is another girl who we are going to name Noelle Quinn. We wanted not so common names but not so out there either. Good luck with the name and your baby!!!

My twelve year old son's name is Ethan Michael. Our daughter was born two years later. Her name is Erin Eileen. It's the only name we could agree on. It is hard to agree on names.

My daughters names are Marrah Tyler Elizabeth & Maizie Thomas Elexus! I wanted to keep their initials the same as well as carry on some family names like Thomas. Since I can't have anymore and boys weren't a selected option, I gave my girls typical boy names as well! I chose Maizie because I wasn't supposed to be able to have any children, Marrah was our first and thought to be last, so when Maizie appeared, all I kept thinking was that this is "AMAZING!" A slight adjustment and "Maizie" was "born" derived from Amazing! Look for something symbolic in your life that represents the way you feel about you newest arrival to be!! It'll come to you...or you can use my girls names!! LOL

We have two boys but if they were girls our oldest would have been Francesca May and our youngest May Florence. The problem with baby names you can plan a name and when they arrive you take one look and think OMG the names not right for them! lol.

do you have ancestry in common. My son and his wife were bound and determined to fine an Irish name and after months of looking, Rori Leona will be here early next month. Rori is I rish with many spellings and Leona is a family name on both sides...and even though the two named Leona on both sides hated it, they are both unfortunately deseased so Rori will honor them both...just listen to all suggestions...one may ens up being the perfect name...GOOD LUCK
