Hey, I am new to this board and hoping to get some opinions on our favorite girls' names. I am due in November and my husband and I can't seem to narrow these down. He says he really likes and would use all three of these (which doesn't help me choose since I love them all.)
If you could please tell me what you think of the following.. opinions are appreciated!

Caroline - we just like the full name Caroline, no nicknames.. do you think she would end up getting nicknamed since it's a longer name? We don't like Callie, Carrie, Carol, etc.

Grace - I really love this but am afraid it's getting too popular. I don't mind if it's a little popular but don't want her to be one of three Graces in her class. Do you think Grace is getting overused? I hear it mentioned a lot but only know one personally.

Natalie - I think this is also pretty popular but again, I don't know any little Natalies myself so it doesn't seem popular to us.

It is definitely going to be one of these three (we are thinking about middle names but aren't going to pick one until we have a first name.)
Thanks for any replies.
Sarah

Caroline: If you don't call her a nickname, it probably won't get shortened until she decides to shorten it (when she's that turbulent 12 or 13, LOL)
It's a nice classic name.

Grace: also a nice classic name, but very popular.

Natilie is a good name, too, but I like either of the other two better. Of the three, my favorite is Caroline.

I love Caroline! One of my favorite names. I don't know anyone by this name and can't think of any nicknames for it. Like you, I don't like nicknames but have to deal with it all the time with my son (Alexander) but no one ever tries to shorten my daughter's name (Elizabeth).

Grace is one of my friend's daughter's names. I agree it is getting popular. She calls her Gracie.

Natalie is cute but not one of my favorites. I don't know anyone named this.

I like Natalie the best. It's weird cause I was thinking of this name the other day.

Maybe you could do:

Natalie Caroline
Natalie Grace
Caroline Grace
Grace Caroline
