Hi! I'm new on here, pregnant with my first. We are expecting a little girl in 1 week and we still dont know what to call her. I would LOVE some name suggestions. It's been difficult to agree because me and my boyfriend are so different but we want the perfect name for are new little girl. We really want a name that isn't that common, but not so different that they are hard to pronouce/spell etc... Her middel name is going to be marie and last name carr so if anyone knows of something please let me know. Thankz Brittany

My daughter's name is Chloe Violet. I love her name! If we have a girl next time right now we like Jessa. I'm in love with Sophie and Lily but my husband doesn't like them.

Have a theme...like nature, or cars...mercedese, nova, rogue....ash, bitch, river, cedar, or try jobs...arccher, cooper, mason, hunter....or flowers.....iris,lily, daisy, ..lots ofeasy discriptive words that are different but not too crazy. Unless crazy is a bit what you arelooking for...then id totally go with a weekday name...like tuesday...tuesday is always a good day.lol

I liked the names Emerson (Emmie for short) and Delilah but the only name my husband and I could agree on was Delaney (Laney) I have 2 other girls from my previous marriage Natalie Marie and Madison Grace.

Hi there, congratz. My favourite name for a girl at the moment is Rylee followed closely by Rory, Haylee and Hannah. I quite like unisex names for girls but thats just me. I like Cooper too. Some less common names that aren't too far out ther are: Kaziah, Zaryah, Brylee, Amalee best of luck

I had the same problem when i was pregnant with our daughter...but we finally named her Mattie Justine...her daddy's name is Mathew and we used to call him Matty...so we finally decided to go with that name because its unique and spelt different... and its not short for anything :]

I have a baby name book that suggests using a 3 syllable first name with a 1 syllable last name, so that is what we did. We named our daughter Julia Anne Gloy. We also wanted an easy name to spell and pronounce, but not too common. I also like Natalie, Caroline, Genevieve, and Christina. Also, we didn't name our daughter until she was 4 days old...we just couldn't decide on a first name.

Try combining two common names to make a new unique one. For example my son's name Ayvin is a combination of the names Avery and Aiden. So for a girl try something maybe like ... well i can't think of one right now at the top of my head. but hopefully you get the point ^_^;

I know exactly how you feel. I wanted my kids to have uncommon names, being that my name is JENNIFER. How boring. In school there was always another Jennifer in my class so we would have to be called by our last names. I HATED it.I didn't want the same to happen to my kids. So I recently had a baby girl and her name is Temprance Jade. I also have a little boy his name is Rowen James. I also like the name Sylvia and Olivia (not as original but still cute). Hope I'm not too late lol

I have a little girl too, after I named her and signed all the paper work, I came up with a name I really liked for her, but I will give it to you because I can't rename her, lol! Summer-Rose. Its different, not very common.

I didn't have a chance to read everyone's response, but I'll give you my pick - My daughter's name is Kennedy so of course Kennedy Marie Carr would be a nice name, I also like the name Kendall too, which has a nice ring Kendall Marie Carr. If I were to have another daughter, (which I'm not planning to have more kids) I'd name her Langston, so Langston Marie Carr would be another option. I picked my daughter's name years before I had her, (I didn't really give my husband much choice, but he liked it too) but our son's name, we just decided for sure at the hospital. To me it seems boys names are harder. Good luck and let us know what you decide!

Quoting Brittany:

We did have a name has Isabella Marie Carr but than Twilight came out and everyone started with wanting that name. I dont know i really do still like the name but my boyfriend doesnt want anything common and its getting really hard.



There's a little girl in my daughters class with that exact name and another isabella in the afternoon class.  It's a cute name though.  I like the name Angel for my daughters with went with Aralynn and Lorelai one is a little more common than the other but I liked them both.

Hi there,its so hard picking a name for your lil one!! me and my partner had narrowed it down to 2 names and we didnt use either,once i had her she didnt look like the names we had picked and we called her Chloe Anne,i think once you have your lil one you will look at her and know the perfect name,and it will all come together for you,good luck and you will have to let us know what you named your lil one once you have her.

Hey! I read over everyone's replys and I have to agree I really like the name Kloee It is so cute, while it is different it is becoming a little more popular. I named my baby BryLeigh Jeneal. It's funny how you mix up the spelling and it can make you love it or hate it. A few of the ones I was set on during my pregnancy were Kiarra, Jamison, and Addison. You will know when you see her the name will just fit her. Hope this helps. Good Luck!

When you see her it might just come to you. My 3 week old son didn't have a name til 5mins after he was born - we just looked at him and said "your name's Harry!". So try not to stress, we were the same, going backwards and forwards and not liking what the other had picked for about 5 months! xxx

P.S. I like the name Penny for a girl if that's any help!

I used traitional nemes for my boys (james and alexander). everyone these days is looking for something so different and unique, but often end up using the same 'unique' ones as everyone else. i have only met one other alex and two other james in the last four years. the traditional names just aren't that common anymore.

The meaning of the name is important. I wouldn't want to name my child something that meant dump. There is no reason not to meet her before knowing her full name. You could call her Marie until you settle on her first name. I think April would sound nice, although it may be too common for your taste.

well, we had a hard time finding a name for our daughter too! what the heck goes with Mussell??? we knew when she was born her name would be Caitlin. Caitlin marie Mussell. I had a boys name picked out too, 6 yrs later we had Nathan james Mussell! pronounced mus sell- not muscle lol! you will know whe she gets here! I also liked jocelyn, and natalie, but as soon as we saw her it was caitlin all the way! Good luck- keep us informed!

I have 4 kids and w/ both my daughters I couldn't finalize a name until they were born and in my arms. Naming a child is one of the hardest tasks in being a parent. Everything else comes easy. Here are some suggestions.

Avery

Quinn

Cadence

Colby

Gracelynn/Gracie

Macy

Zoe(That's my daughters name and it fits her perfectly)



These were all names I loved during my last pregnancy but ended up having identical twin boys and never had to use them. I got the simple classic names Jack and Charlie instead. Good luck w/ the name and I wish you a happy and healthy labor and delivery. Congrats!!

well i have a little boy and when i was pregnant with him we decided on a name for both sexes just in case! we had Peyton Avery picked out for a girl but i also LOVE boy names for girls....Tyler, Shawn, Cooper, Charlie...etc hope that helps! o yea you could also go to mothers/grandmothers maiden names and make something from that..my grandmothers maiden name was Kennedy and that was also a girl name option!

The right name will come to you when you see her! I was hoping for a girl but I have 2 boys! If I had a girl I was going to name them Naysa, Rinnai, Skye, or Cierra. I like eccentric names... thats why I have a Jeren and a Nicolai! Good Luck!

i can tell you, easy place is the net.
just find your root or beyond it but most importantly, look out for the MEANING.
