I have to agree with Laura, I did the yell test with both of my kids names and I yelled it like crazy and now that I really am yelling their names all the time I still like them. My daughter is Jacquelyn Salem.......Sorry I am not much help.

Ok. I originally wanted to name my daughter Samara (sam-are-uh) but nobody else liked it. I also like the names Sabine (or Sabina), Sela (Seela), Sophie and Simone. Sierra and Sienna are a little more popular I think. Just as an aside, I ended up naming my daughter Carissa.

I once heard the best way to test a name to see if you will still like it as the years go on is to stand at the bottom of a stair case and yell the name at the top of your voice for ten minutes. If you still like it, it's a keeper! :)

I hope you're able to find a name you love!
