Need Girl Names!!

  1. [font="comic sans ms"]hello, everyone. to those of you who do not already know, i am 4 months pregnant with my third child . i have 2 sons, erick 7yo and nathaniel 4yo. i have always dreamed of having a little girl and the dr told me a few days ago that she is 60% sure i'm having a girl. so, now i am thinking of girl names.

    i like unusal names. these are the names my husband and i like so far.
    heaven (our #1 choice)
    savannah
    jozelynn

    please post your suggestions. her middle name is mary after my grandmother. so, i trying to find an unusal name that sounds nice with the middle name.
    my pregnancy hormones is causing me to not be able to concentrate so i can use any help i can get.
    thank you!!!

    not that it is my business, but remember that your baby girl will someday be a woman , most likely with a career. I tried to give my girls names that would still be ok when they were adults. Another way is to use the name as a middle name..
    we have a Kimberly and a Kaitlyn.. not really unusual now but they were less common when they were born. A friend just named her daughter Natalia.

    Thank you for your suggestions. That's true. I am trying to keep that in mind. I don't want my daughter saying to me some day, "why did you name me something so silly" LOL. That wouldn't be good. Again as I said before, I am open to any suggestions, so thank you for your advice. Someone said to me to spell Heaven backwards. Nevaeh. It looks pretty, but I don't know how to pronounce it. What do you think?

    Not that it is any of my business, but since you asked..............I have seen countless "heavens" since starting in the nursery. Not very unique if that is what you are going for. I like Savannah and Jozelynn! Don't hear those much and they will sound nice later on in life if baby is a lawyer or a nurse!
    I have 2 ds and finally 1 dd (3 y/o). Her name is Julianna.
    BTW, Congrats!!!
    I love my boys dearly, but I was so excited to have a girl! At 20 weeks when they told me it was a girl I ran out and bought tons of dresses!!
    And now she wants to wear jeans and t-shirts like her "bruba's" (brothers, in Julie speak)

    I also have seen the heaven spelled backwards thing ALOT! I don't really like it, but to each their own. It is pronounced

    Hi
    I don't have any kids; I don't have any unusual names for you, but there are a couple of names I like==Amy, Amanda,Kimberlie, and Jennifer.

    Sorry I didn't think of anything too unusual for you.

    Here are some to avoid, lol. This is an ongoing thread in the Ob-gyn section that is really funny!

    Ugh I don't think the heaven spelled backward one is cute at all! If you watch VH1's Charm School (the girls from Flava of Love), one of the girls on their singing name is that. Not very unbecoming.

    I've always liked Russian names for some reason like Anastasia, Sasha, Sonya, or Lana...I don't know why but I like those names.

    These are some I considered when pregs with my dd. Sarah, Lana, Althea, Stacy-jean (my dad and FIL's names combined), Seraphina.
    I get comments on Julianna all the time, mostly good, but some folks don't like combined names.

    I did have a little boy once dad wanted to name Braxton. Great name, except his last name was Hicks. Mom wouldn't go for it, lol.

    from the perspective of a sometimes-triage-nurse, please don't name you daughter anything with a questionable pronounciation. (i bet school teachers will agree with me!)

    personally, my favorite girl names are megan and abby. i reallize that theses are fairly traditional names (and i don't think they go with your chosen middle name), but right now, traditional names are less common than some of the trendy names.

    i really like "caitlin," but today that is more common than "jennifer" was when i was a kid.

    a friend of mine gave her daughter a traditional first name, with a more unusual middle name. the child goes by the middle name (only her grandmother calls her by her full name).

    good luck with whatever you decide, and congratulations on the upcoming bundle of joy!

    I really like Anastasia. I haven't really heard it too much. I would like to find something that can't be broken down into an abbreviation, like Jenny. Since my name is Jennifer, I spent years getting people to not call me Jenny. Even with my son Nathaniel I try not to call him Nate. my grandmother calls him Nat. yuck!!! Anyway, thanks for all the suggestions. please keep them coming. Trust me, I am taking of all your suggestions under consideration.

    My choices when I was pregnant were Meghan, Chelsea, Lauren, and Sarah.

    Hubs won the argument and we named her Jennifer.
