I am prego with my second and really like the name Emalee. But everyone keeps telling me its too common. My sons name is Aries so we like unique names. But Emalee just keeps getting stuck in my head. We like Parker for a boy, I don't know how common that is either. I also like Cadance for a girl. Any suggestions on girls or boys names would be great!

My daughters name is KarLeigh Renee, We used Renee for my moms middle name, and the Leigh in KarLeigh is for her fathers mothers middle name, Leigh, that's why it is capitalized ;). Good luck! We also liked Lilleighyn Renee for a girl, and our boy name, if that's what we were having, or ever do, was Layton Michael, Michael for his daddy, and Layton because it's unique.

I am a mother of 5 and it was difficult to come up with unique names for all of them but we managed to be unique for the area where we live. My oldest who is now 10 has the most unique name LaLecia (Lay-Leesh-a) We have never net another person with her name. The second oldest ia Alexiss its not as uncommon but the 2 s' really gets people sometimes and they always ask why we didn't just leave it with one, but that's what makes her different. Then it started getting more difficult to find uncommon names we both liked so we went with 2 middle names for the other 3 kids which are Kay-Lee Michelle Elizabeth, Jeremiah James Otto, and Darrien Michael Lamar. I had other names picked out that my husband just wouldn't agree to like for a girl I really wanted to name our youngest Ozziawna of course I like Ozzy so that was my first pick and I think Braydon is cute for a boy.



I like Emalee it is a popular name around where I live but not with that spelling. Cadance is cute too. Good luck :)



I think Emalee is cute it is a common name for where I live but not spelled that way.

We managed to pick two currnetly popular names not really out of choice just that we happen to like pretty traditional names.



My daughter is named Jessica Carmen Gillian (God knows where we got Carmen from and Gillian is my mothers name)



My son is Oliver Leonard - just one middle name for him after my father.



Its a tradition in my family that children all have middle names that come from the mothers family as the mother traditionally has lost her 'family' name when married.

There's always going to be someone who doesn't like the name you pick. I think Emalee is beautiful, I was going to name my son Emmalie Rayne if he was a girl. My daughter's name is Karlie Jo and my son's name William Kaden. We took family names (Carla(her granny)+the ie off my name for Karlie)(William is papa and daddy's 1st name too) and then made them their own.

First off, the spellling of Emalee, makes it unique. I like it. Go with what u like, it is your child and no one elses, name it what u want. :)

My boys names are Tatem and Ryder and no one seemed to like those either, but now they don't seem to mind them. good luck. :)

I'm with you, I love the unique names, I have three myself and my oldest son's name is Myca, and my daughters name is Arizona Sky, but my youngest is Hunter.. Not that unique.. My husband had a fit for the name Hunter, so we went with it.. I don't think it matter what other's say, if Emalee is the name that sticks in your head, then that's the name you go with.. Good luck..

The names you picked out are cute. If you wanted something a little different, Emmaline (like Caroline) is cool.



My kiddos are Simon, Jack, Mary, and Mae. My nephews are Ely, Cooper, and Pierce. My nieces are Evelyn and Virginia.
