Help! I have absolutely no idea what to name my baby girl and neither does my husband! The names that I really like are : Lily, Sunday, Violet, Rosalie, and Esme. Yes, i know these are weird, uncommon names but that's what i was going for. Because all my life i went through meeting people that have the same name as me and it was extremely annoying and i don't want my child to go through that! So please tell me witch one you like, if you don't like any of them i would be happy to hear a suggestion!

I worried so much about what name to give our first child...we all have name/personality hang-ups based on our own life experiences. Then one day it occured to me that naming a brand new spectacular human being was an honor, and not a reason to stress. Although it is inevitable that someone somewhere would share the name, the child would re-invent the name in his/her own way. We chose John (how un-original!!!) to honor my grandfather - and because I kinda liked it. He is, so far, my favorite "John" and it delights me! By the way, we named our second son Knute...just because we liked the way it looked written!! He has made the stoic Scandanavian name all his has been so fun - he's a sillyheart!!

As a teacher, I could never name my child a name of someone that I taught. I have a daughter named Emalee Margaret (middle name after her grandmother), a son named Peyton Chase (but Payton can also be a girl's name), and another son named Logan (which I also heard of as a girls' name). If Logan had been a girl we liked Evalyn Renae(to call her Evie), Lillian (to call her Lilly), and Lola. I have a cousin named Sawyer (a girl). I like Esme and have seen it spelled Esma, as well as Violet, and Rosalie. To narrow it down, my mother always said to go to your back door, open it, and call out the first and middle name you like. If it sounds good, you know. She said to do this because when the child is outside playing, and you need to call them in, you'll know if it sounds right.
I hope this helps! Good Luck!!

Out of all the names you listed, I like Lily the best. I also like the name Eva for a girl. Good luck w/ the new baby!

my husband and I went through this earlier this year naming our daughter - we seemed to draw complete blanks when coming up with a name for a girl. we sat down and wrote down our grandmother's and great-grandmother's full names and there we found 2 names which were on both sides...that is how we came up with Caroline Adella. unintentionally, this also gave her the same initials as her father, so with this baby (due may 2012) we're going with the same initials. back to our family trees for ideas, this time around wasn't so difficult (and we didn't wait til after the 30th week either). like us, you seem to lean more towards traditional or uncommon names - we tried to steer clear of names in the top 50 on the lists, because when my child goes to school the odds of there being others in the class with the same name is less likely.
