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!

I have 3 children. My first being a girl (6) that we named Cierra Dawn. My second is a boy (3) that we named CeJae (C.J.) and my youngest another boy (7 months) that we named Cain Dylan. We also really like the unique names so if my two boys would of been girls they're names would of been Calixta James and Coree Danyell (not so unique, but cute) I think weather it's unique or not as long as you love the name that's all that matters.

I have three step daughters named Harmony, Alicia, and Alexis and a son named Tamion. I have one on the way that will be named Bernard. i personally like the old fashioned or weird names but I also have a huge family and there is already to many repeats in names. Emalee really is pretty common but I love the way you have chosen to spell it. Cadance is really cool I like that.

I love all the names you have picked out.

My 6 year old sons name is Gabriel Robert. We know a couple of Gabriel's now but they are all much younger then him.

5 year old daughters name is Sophia Kaylynn. Again Sophia has gotten really popular, but wasn't as popular in 2003.

3 Year old daughter is Mary Beth. Nope not popular at all lol!

2 year old is Sara Ann. Sara is somewhat common, but not too bad. We don't know any in her age group :)

I have three boys My 5 year old is Brandon Gabriel, after bruce lees son me and me husband at the time were so inlove with his movie. My 2 yr old is Logan Guadalupe, after wolervine of xmen. My 1 yr old is Jake Gavin, I like that I can call him nick names like Jaky, but some people want to call him Jacob. it was hard to think of a boys since we were so hoping for a girl which we wanted name Sara, which means princess. I had a long time to think of their names but I didnt until I knew that it would fit them. I didnt care if it was popular or not but did want some meaning towards them. So just make sure that you love the name and it suits their personality. I always loved the name Emily and Esme(esperansa for short- it means hope in spanish).Oh Donovan is so cute but decided not to use it. My sister named her daughter Alizay Felicia which she taught was unique but we have heard of several children in our area, and Alysia Jayleen is her recent baby.

i have a little boy... and we went with rather popular names... but they are all family names (David Robert Anthony) so we thought it fit. especially since he is the first grandchild on my side and the first grandchild for my fiance's mom. it's kinda funny how his names are integrated in our families. David is my fiance's dad and brother's names and my grandfather's name. Robert is my dad and brother's names and my fiance's grandfather's name. Anthony was my cousin's name (he died from SIDS) and Anthony is also on my fiance's side of the family (an uncle's name, i think).

The spelling of the name is very unique. So, that would set her aside from the other Emily's...My youngest son's middle name is Cadence...His father is a musician and cadence is the beat...

I have three sons all with unique names Conner Aloysius, Quinn Gabriel and Damian Reese, they are the only ones i know with these names. Its not really a matter of common in the plain sense of the word, i think its more like i happen to know 9 emilys, 5 of which are in my friends niece emilys class....probably confusing.

my daughter's name is Emilia Lynne and very many times we do call her emily, emma, emmy, emm.... we found that the name emilia has not been overly popular since the 1800's.... it was in the top 10 for 2008. my point go with your gut whatever you know is right will work no matter how popular or uncommon the name because your childs shining personality will make her/ or his name unique

My children are Jeren Robert and Nicolai Michael... The girl names that we have picked out were Rinnai Lynn or Naysa Lynn... remember that it is your child so you don't have to worry about what other people think of the name...

My daughter is Lucy Elizabeth Elsie - Lucy after my departed grandma, Elizabeth after my husbands departed grandmother, and Elsie after my recently departed Nana. Elsie is fairly original and although it's an old name, the more I say it, the more it doesn't sound so elderly!!!

I really wanted to name our son Atreu and call him Trey. Atreu, I like from the Never Ending Story. My husband said no, so we named our first son Connor William, which means Wise Son and is Irish.

My husband really wanted Emily as well but I said no because it is way too popular right now. So we agreed on Eva Oliva Janette. Cadance is waay popular right now also I have 3 friends that named there little girls that, another that wanted to but that name was used by one of there friends and another that named there little boy Cayden. Thats why we picked Eva, although everyone want's to say Ava cause thats super popular right now to.

I am a mother of three boys. My husband and I also like unique names. My first son is 5 and his name is Kash. My second son is 3 and his name is Cane. My third son is 2 months and his name is Trey. They all have to do with their dad so they are significant to us. Some say Trey is not that unique as the other but he is our third and that's his dad's lucky number so it seemed to fit. If I had a girl I liked the name Bella. For me it was unique and girly. Good luck let me know what you decide.

[deleted account]

We have an Aubrey (girl) and Adam (boy). Also liked Alison. Zachery, Anthony, Seth, & Joseph are some boys names I like. Good Luck!

Hi, im new to the website..... I have a son who is 6 and 1/2 months his name is Evan Andrew, i did like Alfie for a boys name but to many people knew pet animals called Alfie and my boyfriends mum thought of Evan and then Andrew is my boyfriends step dads name who has brought him up. I love the name Scarlett Rose for a girl but my boyfriend hates it.
