Adopting baby girl--need name advice

My hubby and I are adopting a bay girl–I work in a nursery and am not a fan of the popular/common names, I see them all the time. Right now we have talked about these names:
Maevyn-getting flack from family about this one
[name]Willow[/name] [name]Raine[/name]
[name]Ella[/name] [name]Rose[/name](Family name)
[name]Eden[/name] [name]Laurel[/name]
[name]Lilah[/name]-need middle name
No T names–last name starts with T
Thanks for suggestions!

Congrats! I love [name]Laurel[/name] as a first name.

[name]Lilah[/name]- If you don’t like common names I would stay away from this one. Think about all the Lilys/[name]Lilly[/name]/[name]Lillian[/name]/[name]Lola[/name]/[name]Leila[/name]/[name]Laila[/name]/Laylas

I like [name]Eden[/name] [name]Laurel[/name] on your list. If you don’t want a popular name stay away from [name]Ella[/name] [name]Rose[/name], I hear both of those names a lot. But if they are family names maybe you could use one or both for the middle name. Something like [name]Juliet[/name] [name]Ella[/name] [name]Rose[/name] would be pretty. Or [name]Rose[/name] as a first name is more rare, or a variation of [name]Rose[/name]: [name]Rosemary[/name], [name]Rosalie[/name], etc.


Good luck! And congratulations on the adoption!

[name]Laurel[/name] is a very lovely choice… and [name]Adele[/name] has been growing on me… very lovely name too.

Congrats on your baby girl!!!

Maevyn- What about [name]Maeva[/name] or [name]Maeve[/name]? I like both of those.

[name]Willow[/name] [name]Raine[/name]- I not a huge fan of [name]Willow[/name]. This combo is a little to naturey for my taste.

[name]Ella[/name] [name]Rose[/name](Family name)- If you dont want a popular name then I would avoid [name]Ella[/name]. There are tons of [name]Ella[/name]/[name]Ellie[/name]/[name]Elle[/name]/[name]Elizabeth[/name]/[name]Eleanor[/name] right now.

[name]Eden[/name] [name]Laurel[/name]- I really like this combo. It flows very well. This one get my vote.

[name]Lilah[/name]- I prefer the spelling [name]Lila[/name]. I love this name. It is so sweet, it is becoming more popular though. Maybe [name]Lila[/name] [name]Rose[/name]?

[name]Eden[/name] [name]Laurel[/name] gets my vote.

Others you might like:

I like [name]Willow[/name], but not with [name]Raine[/name]…too environemntalist/ hippie. [name]Willow[/name] [name]Rose[/name] is nicer. [name]Ella[/name] [name]Rose[/name] is very feminine, clean, and accessible. [name]Will[/name] age nicely as well.

Congratulations!!! That’s so exciting!

[name]Lilah[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name]
[name]Lilah[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]
[name]Lilah[/name] [name]Jessamine[/name]
[name]Lilah[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Lilah[/name] [name]Madeleine[/name]
[name]Lilah[/name] [name]Maeve[/name]
[name]Lilah[/name] [name]Rosalie[/name]

If you dont like popular names stay away from [name]Ella[/name] and [name]Lilah[/name]/lila very very pop. willow, eden and laurel are very cute. Maevyn looks made up but I do like maeve

Maevyn-getting flack from family about this one
[name]Willow[/name] [name]Raine[/name]
[name]Ella[/name] [name]Rose[/name](Family name)
[name]Eden[/name] [name]Laurel[/name]
[name]Lilah[/name]-need middle name

[name]Eden[/name] [name]Laurel[/name] or [name]Laurel[/name] [name]Rose[/name] are my top choices.

Congrats. I am so happy for you!

It’s so wonderful that you are adopting a baby girl!
Maevyn-getting flack from family about this one - I think Maevyn looks and sounds made up. I prefer [name]Maeve[/name].
[name]Willow[/name] [name]Raine[/name] - such a nature name.
[name]Ella[/name] [name]Rose[/name](Family name) - too popular
[name]Eden[/name] [name]Laurel[/name] - very pretty!
[name]Lilah[/name]-need middle name - is going to get very popular
No T names–last name starts with T

I would go with [name]Eden[/name] [name]Laurel[/name]. It’s very lovely and not too common. [name]How[/name] does [name]Eden[/name] sound with your last name?

I would pick [name]Lilah[/name] Maevyn or [name]Ella[/name] [name]Rose[/name]!

I think [name]Eden[/name] [name]Laurel[/name] is really cute. I like [name]Willow[/name] and [name]Lilah[/name] too. [name]Ella[/name] [name]Rose[/name] is one of the most popular names on the planet. Maeven is different, but I like [name]Mavis[/name] and [name]Maeve[/name] a lot more.
[name]Lilah[/name] [name]Camille[/name]
[name]Lilah[/name] [name]Irene[/name]
[name]Lilah[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]
[name]Lilah[/name] [name]Eloise[/name]
[name]Lilah[/name] [name]Corinne[/name]

Thanks for all the suggestions–[name]Eden[/name] [name]Laurel[/name] is my fav, but am trying to have a short list for when we meet her. I agree [name]Ella[/name] [name]Rose[/name] is too popular–they are my 2 favorite aunts, but maybe not the choice for me. I have a few more to ask opinions

[name]Willa[/name] --(Grandfather is named [name]William[/name] and Grandma who has passed was [name]Wilma[/name])–Need a flowing middle name.

[name]Willow[/name]–still like it, but maybe some suggestions for middle name.
[name]Bellamy[/name] [name]Quinn[/name]??? nn[name]Bella[/name]/[name]Ella[/name]
[name]Love[/name] the name [name]Judah[/name], but worried it isn’t girly enough (my mom’s name is [name]Judith[/name])
My other daughter’s name is [name]Mallory[/name] [name]Claire[/name]
Last name very similar to Trainor.

[name]Willa[/name] [name]Beatrice[/name]
[name]Willa[/name] [name]Caroline[/name]
[name]Willa[/name] [name]Clementine[/name] - love!
