    Default Girl Names???

    So excited to find out we are having a GIRL!!! Now we really need help with a name. We like Jade for a middle name, but are stumped on finding a first name. We don't want names you hear everyday. Any ideas...?

    I really like Jade! That's pretty. We're considering Luci if our baby is a girl.

    We have Amelia on our list, since it is a family name, but much to my chagrin, I recently saw it on an "up and coming" list. I don't want it to turn into a "Maddy" or "Bella." Not that those names aren't beautiful names. I like them a lot. But we all have unique names in my family, and I'd like to stay with a less popular name too...

    Do you have any names on your short list you might like? Everyone is so different with names they choose, sometimes a couple suggestions will get us started helping you with other names....good luck!

    If our son was a girl we would've named her Audrey. Elegant, classy.
    My nieces name is Ainsley, which I really like.

    Jade is cute!

    This is from Disney Baby...

    Girl names sure to sky-rocket:


    Amelia
    Charlotte/Charley (sure to be a Top 10 soon)
    Scarlett
    Harper (the fastest-rising girl name in the Top 100)
    Penelope (especially now that a certain Kardashian, possibly responsible for the “Mason” boom, named her daughter Penelope. Sigh.)
    Adele
    Estelle/Stella
    Briella/Brielle (the fastest-rising girl name of 2011)
    Mila (another name that skyrocketed last year — presumably because of a Ms. Kunis)
    Aubrey/Aubree
    Molly
    Violet
    Lucy


    More girl names on the rise:
    Isla and other short -ah ending names: Aria, Luna, Cora, Eva, Nora, and Clara (in the tradition of Emma, Olivia, and Ava).
    Elsie, Elise, Eliza and Eloise (the new El- names?)
    Ivy
    June
    Juniper
    Olive
    Names ending in -lyn or -lynn (Evelyn, Raelynn, Emmalynn, Addilynn, etc.). This is a huge trend.
    Names ending in -anna (Audrianna, Lilliana, Aviana, etc.)
    Alice
    Bryn
    Harlow
    Kinsley/Kinley/Kensley
    Vera
    Ember and other “Em-” names like Emery and Emerson
    Milania
    Bristol
    Kennedy

    Sad to see Lucy on that list!! Oh well! My DH loves the name Madison but I x-ed that idea due to its crazy popularity right now.

    Very surprised to see some of those names...especially Emerson, which is on our BOY list--it's a male name, it means "Emory's son."
    Augusta (38), Jeff (33), and 3 rescued fur-babies Chancey the boxer mix(10), Tuck the malamute (2), and Jake the kitty who thinks he's a dog (1 year old!)

    I'm surprised to see Alice on the list. That was my grandmothers name, and I didn't want to use it if we had a girl because it seemed too old fashioned, so we are using Alise instead.

    Every time I name a baby her name becomes popular shortly after. My last baby girl I named Eva Jane. Eva was barely on the lists then. I have only run into one person naming her baby eva in the last year and don't know any other kids with the name.

    I'm partial to Sophia because that's my daughter's name and Jade is her middle name. I also like the names Victoria, Evelyn, Jasmine, Olivia, Jacquelyn, Emma.

    We wanted names no where on the 'list'. Our next two are Fionna Anne and Callista Jane :-)

    I love this site http://www.ssa.gov/cgi-bin/popularnames.cgi you can also do popularity by state as sometimes that makes a difference.

    On our list is
    Cassandra (probably top choice right now)
    Courtney (my favorite)
    Vanessa
    Brittany (mine)
    Madeline
    Rebecca
    Penelope (DH's)
    Mallory (again DH's)
    Autumn (again his)
    Stephanie (mine)
    Juliet (mine but he's against it)
    Also love the name Roxanne but we can't use it due to a family member

    Here's our Girl list

    Gabriel
    Isabel
    Hannah
    Amelia
    Katherine
    Valentine (I love Ender's game, character would be named after Val from the book)
    Lucy
    Caroline
    Alice (another literary ref)
    Stephanie

    I think that DH and I have decided on Caroline Stephanie after our mothers. His mother's name was Carol so it would follow the same "form" we have with our oldest, Jonathan. He's named after my FIL, John.

    As for popularity: Don't worry about it. If you like a name then use it regardless of it's popularity. I was one of two Megans in my class in gradeschool and it never really bothered me. The other Megan was cool and we used to hang out.

    DD is Phoebe Grace. I had chosen Phoebe Jean (PJ) but DH nixed the Jean. He fell in love with Phoebe Grace. We did not have any others on the list as Phoebe was my dream name... I lucked out.

    However, I love older traditional names:
    Elizabeth
    Christine
    Judith (Judy)
    Kimberly
    Olivia
    Lila
    Margaret
    Julia

    and if I picked a character to name after, Ariel.
    Phoebe Grace 6-22-11; 37.5" and 26.2# at 2 years old! She is my wild child!

    There's a little girl is DS's class named Ainsleigh and she is a doll!

    I didn't know Amelia was on its way for such a meteoric rise...makes me want to use it a little less, but there's too much history for us not to use it.
