Mike decided he didn't like the names we had picked out, so we are looking for a name. What are your favorite girls names? I need ideas! We like things that are traditional as well as uncommon.

My list was way different than DH's list.

I like things like Chloe and Claire; he didn't.

Are you looking for a specific meaning or just something that sounds nice?

I am not really looking for specific meanings. Just something that sounds good. DH doesn't want any A names because the only other girl in his family is named Ashlee. We had Emma picked out, but it seems like every other child is named Emma now. K names won't work either because the middle name will be Claire, or Terese(not sure how DH wants to spell that, it's after his mother that died when he was little), and we dont like the nick names that could come out of that.

I love the name Amelia too. DH and I have decided that if we ever have another girl (extremely doubtful) we will name her Amelia.

Amelia Claire would be very pretty is your DH didn't mind "A" names.

I like Isabella too! It's on my list for possible girl names (baby #3). I love Claire too (also on my list).

Other than that, I'm kinda stuck for names. I'll get back to you...

The girl names I have picked out are:

Shaylin
Hope
Alexis
Jordyn
Natalee
Aspen

I also like Olivia but dh doesn't

What if you integrated Claire and Terese into a different name like Teresa or something.

I have a friend that was going to name her daughter Brailynne? Brailynne Terese would be cute IMO. I hope you come up with something.

We're having a hard time with girl's names too.... boys names are so easy for us to come up with. I really like Elizabeth for a girl but that is SO's grandma so we don't really want to use that.
