How about Melissa? ;-P
A vote for my daughters name Camilla. :D We shorten to Milla sometimes.
AureliaAlene (this is French)MarliesLillian (Lili for short)Elise
Michel (Mi-kel), that's always been a favorite of mine, even if people don't know how to say it right off the bat.
Adelyn (our daughter's name)HavenRuthRosemaryOpal
We are always talking about names in this house. Today I like:WinnieMcKennaDaisyand my daughters:HadleyMaggieMollyCongratulations on your pregnancy!
We were thinking of naming our daughter Eloise and nicknaming her 'Ella'.
Oh insomnia...I know all about that at my house. I had it last night. I guess it didn't help that the baby was teething and crying a fair bit.Names I like:LilaNinaFloraElisabethMargaret
This is a huge list, but I keep a list of names that I add to all the time. Copy and Paste. Hope it helps spark some ideas.Abigail, Adelaide, Allison, Anna, Bailey, Charlotte, Deidre, Eleanor (Ellie, Nelly, Nora), Eloise, Esther, Fiona, Flor, Georgia,Gretta , Ingrid, Jane, Laurel, Leah, Liesle, Lily, Mabel, Madeleine, Madison, Maggie, Mary, Maura, Meridith, Milly, Morgan, Nedra, Noelle, Robin, Ruby, Sarah, Simone, Winifred (Winnie)
Oh, these are ALL just my type of names!! Thanks, ladies, keep them coming! (This morning my 8 year old son sweetly suggested "Tiffany" :))
Not sure what your girl(s)/nieces' names are to begin with, so please excuse any suggestions for a rerun. ;)TaliaWrenCorneliaAmedeaEsther
Here, I'll lend you my daughters' names. :-)JaneSusanna (one traditional nickname I LOVE for this is Sukey, but our Susanna's nickname is Zuzu)EllenOne thing I love about these names is that they're beautiful, familiar and classic but not used much. None of them is anywhere near the top 300 most used baby names: http://www.ssa.gov/cgi-bin/popularnames.cgi
Oh, also I love Esme. And I love the story that introduced me to the name when I was young: For Esme, With Love and Squalor, by J.D. Salinger.
Oh, yes! Ivy? Poppy? We're huge fans of Charlotte and Violet here in the Crowe house...maybe I need to have another baby... ;-)
claire. that is what mine will be named when she ever arrives.
Lola, Audrey, Marin were my favs, but I have all boys...
Georgianna (Gigi)GretlValoraIrisThese are all names I love but my husband has vetoed.
Our daughters' names are Greta and Ginger...we love these. I have a secret "crush" on the names Irene, Eileen, and Maeve these days though.
Clementine. Carmen. Eloise. Louisa. Ainsley. Ramona. Gretel. Hazel.
Oh my gosh... all these pretty names make me want to have another daughter :)When we were thinking of names for ours, these were in contention: Izumi, Akiko, and Camille. We decided on Colette Noémi
you;ve got a good list going. here are a few more: cora, opal, lily, gabriella, simone, violet, edie. have fun!
Names I love but can't use for one reason or another:EllenLinneaRosemaryJune
DorothyLorraineCholtilde But my real advice, go check the SS Index of top 100 names. Don't pick anything in the top 25. Then ignore 25-50. 51-100, there's where you pick from. Anything past 100 eh...probably not. And use the most common spelling. ALWAYS. Uncommon spellings do make the name "special". It makes the kid look like they have parents that don't know how to spell. Oh, and name your child for the woman she will become, not the baby she is.
OliveHazelEstherIsla (do you know how to say that?)Aliceohh and some others have already said...Pearl, Elsie, blogers have great ideas!
JuniperVioletRachelleEstelleMargueriteMaeveWillowImogenAugustineYes, I do like plants. And french. :)So many lovely names! My sister's name is Eloise, and she is and has always been a character. Watch out for that one. ;D
My daughter is named :Madita (in Germany one heroin of Astrid Lindgren)I also always likedLinneaAmyLilyHannahGretaLanawarm Greetings from LuxembourSimoneDid u by chance have a look for the pattern ;) ??
What about Iris? It is my very special daughter's name. And who does not love the writings of iris Murdoch?
I wanted to call my first daughter Olive but couldn't convince my husband and she got Sophia instead. Don't get me wrong, I love the name Sophia too but my love for Olive just simply wouldn't fade. 3 years later I had worn him down sufficiently that he relented and we welcomed Olive Coco. Hooray!
Wow, you've gotten some GREAT names here - makes me want to adopt something so I can name it. Here are a couple that I didn't see, but maybe missed: Tallulah, which I love, but couldn't sell my husband on, and Clover, which I did sell him on. And she's perfect, so I know its a good name.
Someone asked how to pronounce Isla. It is pronounced eye-la. Isn't it beautiful?
Astrid (a friend's beautiful daughters name)Elizabeth (Bess) why does no one use Bess anymore, so sweet!Jemima (a perfectly good name ruined here in America by auntie, Lol!)
We have a Carrington and an Ellie. If our third was a girl she would have been Temple (It was a boy, so we have a Finn and now a Deacon). All these names make me want something I can name :)
There are some fantastic names here - actually some that belong to my own daughters who are:Amélie CharlotteImogen Elizabeth Audrey ClementineIf we had another daughter (which I would LOVE) she will be Esmé.Other names I love but for various reasons could use: RubyJemimaMatildaLolaPoppyAll the best!
Forget name suggestions! I love the background to the bed!!
how about Tess? She's my sweet, who just turned 8.
Some favorites include-ClaraNoraLacyElaineCoraSistine :)this must be so exciting for you!!!!
hello~The lovely Jora over at Domestic Reflections is a bit further along in the expecting baby game, you might hop over and ask her for some thoughts!http://domesticreflections.blogspot.com/all the best during those restless nights~anie
Beatrice, Luella, Frances (Frannie), Willa, Athena, MinervaBy the way, my friend's daughter's middle name is Estelle, and it sounds great when she calls her by her full name when she is scolding her.
my 2 y.o is Maxine, but she was almost Miriam. i also love Camille, Rose, Freda, and Aviva.
AmaliaAnnaliseElspethGwenIngridIreneNiaNissaSiriTamsinUrsulaYarrow(my own are Olivia and Audrey)
Ellie Mae (my little princess)CharlotteTiffanyMatildaRoseI had a list a mile long, knew I was having a girl for months and still took two days to decide what to call her after she was born. Good luck!
Umm, how about Susan? :)Here is my more serious list: KillerHaydon goes to school with a girl named Niue (pronounced Nee-way). I looked it up and it means, Behold the coconut! :)SavannahMarlice (knew a French woman once with this name. She was so nice.)Clarice (you know Rudolph's friend)MikahMillieAstrid (was to be Haydon's name if he was a girl) (we would have called her Addie)That's all for now. Hope you and your family are doing well. Tell everyone hello for us. xo
Oh yes, another one. We go to church with a family that named their little one Gemma. Isn't that adorable? These little girls are such "gems", I thought it was so fitting. She and her husband served a mission Russia, I think that is where she first laid ears on it. :)
My daughters names are Charlotte and Georgia. Georgia is named after my father George, and I think it is an especially lovely name.Other names:AmeliaMadelineAnniePearl
Oh and we call Georgia "Gigi" sometimes. She loves the nickname!
I like old fashioned names. Eden ElisabethClara NoelJeanette RuthElanor Margaretare my four girls but if I were blessed enough to have another I like Lotte (I think its short for Charlotte?) and Harriet. But I think I might be alone on this.
Ooo, I love names!Some goodies:RubyIrisEviePoppySamanthaElsaMy cousin named her daughter Lydia Sue, which I think is darling. I love Sue as a middle name.My dad has suggested Flossie, which I would definitely consider.Annabel is our daughter and Daisy is at the top of our list if we have another gal someday.
http://www.whatalovelyname.com/I love this link to baby generated names...so fun!
Balladine was our second choice for our doughter's name (after the mother of painter BALTHUS) but it was too long, we wanted a shorter one. Then there was :VioletteJinaneHope it helps.
vivienne elisesophie elizabethtessagenevievehelen margueritebest wishes!
Lynne:I saw that someone suggested Willa. Yes, I really like this name!
Here is my list:SavannahAudreyJulietteLeila RoseLilyCassidyScarletVioletOliviaAverieClaraMarloweHarperQuinnEmersonWrenThe last 3 are my FAVES!
My daughter goes by her first and middle name....... Ann leslie .. I thought I would throw it in.........
My daughters name is Ann LeslieLove it!!!
wow, that's a LOT of names. so fun to read them. A few more-- Orla Virginiaand of course Lucie (the reason we spell Lucie's name with an -ie is because it was my great-grandmother's name).
Just discovered your blog and loving it! I was just in London and heard the names Jemima, Jems for short, and Octavia, and I thought they were so cute.
here were a few on our list before we settled on AmeliaLucyLolaTabithaFionaElizaBlythe
Caeli (CHAY-lee)Chloe'Annalise (or Annalisa)
My little ones are Piper Murphy and Nuala Brady (pronounced "newla"). I love Dagmar but it was too germanic for my Irish husband.
I have a Lorelei (Laura-lie) and a Gretchen (we sometimes call her Gigi)
cornelia.(from that you can get all kinds of shortened versions: neely, nell, nellie, lia, lee lee, ni ni, corey)claire.lucille.
Wow! this is great... I found out today that I'm having my 4th girl, so this has been really helpful. Today from this list I have chosen Lottie. My other girls are Maya Lily, Molly Jess and Mieke (Meekah) Pip (after Pippi Longstocking). Obviously I'm pretty keen on those!
My daughters areAntonia PaigeandGenevieve Freyathey get shortened (sometimes) to Tonia/Toni and Evie.X
Violet, Elly, Lumin, Francis, Collette, Josie, Luna, Atherton, Callie, Honor, Cedarose, AureliaI love girls names! Good luck with your quest....
i vote: claraheidijane
I can really only suggest my daughters name, Amelia Eve (Milly for short). Beautiful, classic, timeless.
A third vote for Willa. Love Willa Cather's books. Also, I once met the most graceful French woman named Ghislaine. I've always loved that name, though it never quite worked for our situation. I also loved the name Kajsa (Swedish), but alas, have gone with more traditional American names for my own kids. Goodluck!
My daughter's name is Juliette Sabine.Good luck! Ann
What great suggestions! Here are some more;Stella Rose (our very own 'Minnie')Alice Matilda Ruby (my fav neice)FlorenceFloraFreyaEdieMillieGenevieveElsaFrederikaI love "F" names but we have a really diffcult F (German) surname so they just can't work for us.Good luck!
I've always liked growing up as a Tobi. ;)
a friend's grandmother's name is interestingly named "novella lilly" (southerner)."allegra"i know someone named "pleasants" (lovely person, fits her name beautifully, another southerner)
The joy of dreaming a name for a promised new little person!!!My favourite is Willa - meaning desired, or longed forAlso loveElsbethSadieLouisaClementineAdelaideand Madeaux (mah'doh) french nickname for Madeleine
Georgianna and Lizzie. My two favorite names from Jane Austen's works. And I'm sure whatever name you decide upon will be perfect for your wee one.
My daughter is Penelope. I like the story of Penelope from the Odyssey....too long to write it here, but basically she's known for being clever as well as for her faithfulness. And it happens to fit our daughter perfectly. Good luck.
Partial to my girls' namesMorganElisabeth "Ella"MargaretFrances
Georgie or Georgianna (pronounced geor-jane-uh) like in the movie The Dutchess! Our Daughers name is Georgie, we call her Gigi or G and I fall more in love with it every day. For a moment I wished I'd named her Georgianna (after watching The Dutchess) but Georgie is a family name. Happy searching!
I love the names Esmé, Wren, Camille, Luna, Seraphina and Penelope. I have to second Missy Anns comment about naming your child for them woman she will become, not the baby she is, after all, you do hope that she will one day grow up to become a strong, independant woman (or any other qualities you'd like her to have, these were my preferences). I would bevare of the name Michel that someone suggested, it's a traditional mans name in big parts of the world. I also dislike naming girls names that end in "-son", maybe because my mother tongue is Swedish, but Mason means "Marks son" and I don't really see it fitting for a girl or a woman, the same goes for Adams son (Addison) and Anders/Andrews son (Anderson). Anyway, I think You are going to choose a lovely and fitting name for your little girl (which she will be even 50 years from now), these tree objections are just something that keeps bugging me every time I see names being discussed on the Internet, and I had to let it out :-)
My daughter's name is Isla May (we just started calling her May May and she loves it.
Hi Lynne. Wow 95 comments. Abby has 2 friends with adorable names in her class Ivy and Lola. Lola might compete with Lily a little though. I love that Ethan came up with the name Tiffany:)
Hi there! I discovered your blog from your Black Apple doll template, which I am planning to make for my little one, her name is very special to me, she was named when I was 10 years old, and I had her when I was 25. I loved Anne of Greene Gables, which is where I got it. Her name is Avonlea Patricia. Avy for short, her first name is pronounced a-von-lee. Not like Avon, but with a short a. Other names we were considering were Willa, which seems to be getting pretty popular, Paisley, Gemma Sue, Greer, Paige, and Ila or Isla. My little sisters are Brantley Claire, Aubrey Kai, and Presley Grace (after, you guessed it, Elvis). I also love Stella. Congrats on your little girl! There is something so amazing about a mom and her girl! Good Luck.
You don't need more help.Nonetheless:Mary (my daughter, who is often May)Louisa EveCongratulations to you.
Eloise! My current crush.
Just found your lovely blog, read through all 100 posts and saw none of my girl's name Lauren It is a great name and not very common here. Much luck and congrats!
I have Jessica, Sophie, Rose, Molly and Lily. Only managed two flower names. If I was the only one choosing they would have been, Violet, Poppy, Rose, Daisy and Lily. There are so many lovely girls names. I love Clover and Matilda as well.
I just found your blog through . . . I have no idea. I've been all over blogland tonight! Anyway, I hope I'm not too late to jump in with baby name suggestions. I have three daughters (and three sons too, but that's not what you're interested in). I get tons of compliments on their names:India JaneArabella ClaireAdelaide Amelia (Adelaide was named Clementine for one week, but we got so much crap for that name. Everybody made fun of it. Everybody! So we officially changed it and usually call her Ada for short. Addie is getting to be very common.)
Don't know if your still looking for names, but my daghter who is 6 months old is called Tekla, it was quite common for girls in Sweden about 100 years ago to be named Tekla, not so common anymore. It's a grecian name, meaning "divine fame".Rut Agnes Tekla is her full name.
well, what about Haley? or maybe Christine? I have a neighbor whose pregnant with a baby girl as well, and they're planning on the name Avery. Hope this helps! Congratulations :)
