Baby due in 5 days! Help me narrow my FINAL list..

[name]Baby[/name] girl is due in 5 days, but hubby and I still havent found “the” name. Our new list looks like:


Her older brother is named [name]Michael[/name] :slight_smile:


My vote is for [name]Jocelyn[/name] :slight_smile: [name]Jocelyn[/name] [name]Camille[/name] is very pretty! I also really like [name]Emerson[/name]. Good [name]Luck[/name]!

Is Maise supposed to be [name]Maisie[/name]? If so, I think it’s cute. [name]Maisie[/name] [name]Jocelyn[/name] would be adorable. [name]Chloe[/name] [name]Madeline[/name] might be nice, too.

[name]Gabrielle[/name]/[name]Gabriella[/name]- I may be a bit biased, since [name]Gabrielle[/name] is my name, but I love it! I don’t love [name]Gabriella[/name] half as much. It would be cool to have a [name]Michael[/name] and a [name]Gabrielle[/name], since the angels are named [name]Michael[/name] and [name]Gabriel[/name]!
[name]Camille[/name]/[name]Camilla[/name]- I like [name]Camilla[/name]; I really like [name]Camilla[/name] and [name]Michael[/name] together.
[name]Chloe[/name]- A pretty name, it has become very well known, she’s sure to know at least one other [name]Chloe[/name] in her school.
[name]Madeline[/name]- [name]Madeline[/name] and [name]Michael[/name] is a bit matchy and may lock you into an ‘M’ trend.
[name]Emerson[/name]- No. This is far too masculine to put on a little girl, esspecially when her brothers name isn’t overly male, but still a strong boys name. If you are seeking the ‘emme’ or ‘emmy’ nn’s without having to go for the extremely popular [name]Emma[/name], I would suggest [name]Emmeline[/name], [name]Esmeralda[/name], or just the beautiful [name]Emmy[/name].
[name]Maya[/name]- again with the ‘m’ problem.
Mayse- That ‘y’ is not unique, it’s just a y.
Maise- maze is a kind of corn. If you are going for the ‘[name]Maisie[/name]’ affect without being overly cutesy, I would suggest [name]May[/name] or [name]Margo[/name]
[name]Jocelyn[/name]- I like [name]Jocelyn[/name], I see this name blending well with your other favorites.

I would keep:


and toss the others.


[name]Bella[/name] <3

[name]Gabrielle[/name] [name]Chloe[/name]
[name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Chloe[/name]

I love the name [name]Madeline[/name]! And [name]Emerson[/name] is cute too. It has an “m” in it so it goes well with [name]Michael[/name], but it’s not another “M” name that might limit future choices!

I don’t think [name]Emerson[/name] is too masculine. I knew a little girl named [name]Emerson[/name] and she pulled it off perfectly! She was a doll!

I love the name [name]Emerson[/name], especially if you pair it with a feminine middle name like [name]Emerson[/name] [name]Rose[/name] or [name]Emerson[/name] [name]Grace[/name].

I also like [name]Gabriella[/name] and [name]Camilla[/name], but I’m not crazy about nn [name]Gabby[/name] or [name]Cammy[/name].

The other name on your list I like is [name]Chloe[/name], but it’s very popular. I’m not sure if that matters to you…

[name]Camilla[/name] is my favorite to go with [name]Michael[/name]! My second is [name]Madeline[/name], then [name]Emerson[/name].

I like [name]Camille[/name] or [name]Camilla[/name] with [name]Michael[/name]. Your other choices seem very trendy/popular right now and since [name]Michael[/name] is such a common name it would be nice to offset it with the lovely [name]Camille[/name]/[name]Camilla[/name].

[name]Gabrielle[/name]/[name]Gabriella[/name]- Beautiful name! I prefer [name]Gabrielle[/name] but either is great. I think this goes perfectly with [name]Michael[/name].
[name]Camille[/name]/[name]Camilla[/name]- Another great name. I like both and either would go lovely with brother [name]Michael[/name]'s name.
[name]Chloe[/name]- Cute, but kinda too cute imo.
[name]Madeline[/name]- [name]Michael[/name] and [name]Madeline[/name] are a little to similar for my taste. [name]Madeline[/name] would make a great middle name though.
[name]Emerson[/name]- Too masculine for my taste.
[name]Maya[/name]- [name]Michael[/name] and [name]Maya[/name] are too similar imo.
[name]Maysen[/name]- Eh,even this the creative spelling its still to masculine for a little girl.
Maise- [name]Maisie[/name] is adorable, but I think it will always sound young.
[name]Jocelyn[/name]- [name]Michael[/name] and [name]Jocelyn[/name] go really well together.

My favorites are [name]Gabrielle[/name]/[name]Gabriella[/name], [name]Camille[/name]/[name]Camilla[/name], and [name]Jocelyn[/name].

Some combos:
[name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Jocelyn[/name]
[name]Gabrielle[/name] [name]Madeline[/name]
[name]Camille[/name] [name]Emerson[/name]
[name]Camilla[/name] [name]Madeline[/name]
[name]Jocelyn[/name] [name]Chloe[/name]

I am going to throw in another vote for [name]Camilla[/name]! It’s definitely the most beautiful name from your list, and the one that best pairs with [name]Michael[/name]! [name]Camilla[/name] [name]Jocelyn[/name] is beyond lovely!

THanks all for your input. Choosing a name is so hard…can’t believe she’ll be here in 4 days and we are still trying to decide.

I also love [name]Camille[/name] and [name]Camilla[/name]! I think [name]Michael[/name] and [name]Camilla[/name] sounds very sophisticated but [name]Michael[/name] and [name]Camille[/name] is more my style. It just seems sweeter to me. Either way I love the nn [name]Milla[/name] as an alternative to [name]Cammy[/name].

I also like [name]Gabrielle[/name] and [name]Gabriella[/name] but they sound a little themey with [name]Michael[/name] because of the angels. [name]Chloe[/name] and [name]Jocelyn[/name] are nice enough but very popular and not my favs. I love [name]Maya[/name] but not with [name]Michael[/name] because the both start with the same sound.

[name]Emerson[/name] and [name]Maysen[/name] seem trendy and masculine to me, especially [name]Maysen[/name]. And I dont like Maise because it does just make me think of maise starch.

[name]Madeline[/name] is lovely if you don’t mind tying yourself into and M theme for future children, although I don’t necessarily think two children with M names is a theme.

So yes my favs are [name]Michael[/name] and [name]Camille[/name], [name]Michael[/name] and [name]Madeline[/name] or [name]Michael[/name] and [name]Camilla[/name]. Best of luck :slight_smile:

Thanks for your great input. I think my favs are [name]Camille[/name], [name]Madeline[/name] and [name]Chloe[/name] of the list. I’m not worried about the M theme, because we dont plan to have any more kids after so I:m not worried about future kids needing an M name.

My favorite on your list is [name]Camille[/name] but I’m afraid I don’t think it goes with [name]Michael[/name] - it has too many of the same sounds - M, L, C. I also really like [name]Chloe[/name] and [name]Jocelyn[/name].

Good luck!

Another vote for [name]Camille[/name] / [name]Camilla[/name] with [name]Madeline[/name] in second place

I vote Maise! It is very cute and sounds great with older brother, [name]Michael[/name]. Maise [name]Emerson[/name] sounds great as a first and middle. :slight_smile:
Good [name]Luck[/name]!

Thanks all for you advice. Hopefully hubby and i can agree tonight. wish me luck!


All of those are great! Some combos:
[name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Chloe[/name]
[name]Madeline[/name] [name]Gabrielle[/name]
[name]Jocelyn[/name] [name]Camille[/name]

Mix and match! Good luck!
