    Default Name HELP!!

    We are so in need of naming help! We just can't come up with anything we both like and agree on! So I'm opening myself up to suggestions. Here is my criteria:

    *Clearly a girls name--(so when someone reads it on paper, they don't wonder if it is a boy or a girl)

    *Not super trendy so she'll be Name Last Initial in all of her classes

    Our other kids names are: Joseph, Kaitlyn, Weston, and Oakley (I realize Joseph and Kaitlyn are both more popular names--one was a family name and one was chosen when I was 14 as my first dd's name but surprisingly, neither has had to use a last initial in any school class so far). So something that maybe goes with those names???

    I cheated and used Nymbler to generate some girl names for you based on your other kids' names (maybe you have already done this). This is what it gave me for girl names:
    Ashlyn
    Leah
    Haley (or Hailey)
    Sarah
    Elizabeth
    Grace
    Charlotte
    Lucy
    Amelia
    Kassidy (or spelled with a C if you don't want another K name)

    I didn't look up the popularity ranking for each name though I didn't include the suggested Olivia and Ava since I'm pretty sure those are both in the top 10. Some of the others listed may be high up as well.

    Have you tried looking in some of your favorite books (pleasure reading not baby name books ) for inspiration? Was there a female character that you really admired?

    I like the same kind of thing, I definitely love the classics.
    On my girl list was:
    Eleanor
    Charlotte
    Diane
    Louise
    Clara
    Jane
    Jeanette
    Jacqueline
    Anne

    All (except Eleanor, which is creeping up the list) are uncommon now (I did my research! lol), but still lovely girl's names.

    Lurker from April

    Not sure if any of the names I like will help, as the girl names I like seem to be more neutral then girly....
    if we weren't having boy #3 - this would be our list:

    Piper
    Carson - definately not obviously girly - but I love it for a girl
    Camille


    Someone above mentioned Cassidy - I think that is a pretty name and goes well with your others!
    Audrey
    DH Sebastian
    DS Sawyer 4/1/06
    DD Payton too beautiful for this earth, born silently 7/19/09 at 33 wks
    DS Greyson 6/29/11
    DS Parker 4/14/14

    Thanks for all the suggestions!! We are still stumped, but have added a few more of these to "the list" I really should write down a physical list so we can see what they look like. Because then we need a middle name!! Ack!

    And Charlotte has creeped into the top 20 recently in the US too! It is actually my top girls name, but dh isn't too fond of it. He thinks it is too trendy--but I put it on my list before looking at any "trend" chart or rankings or anything. And just thinking of who I know--kids from church or the kids school classes, or friends babies, there hasn't been one Charlotte. So I figured it was much lower in popularity that it looks like it is becoming.
