Finally a girl and now can't come up with a name!!!

I have 4 boys that all have unisex names that end in a n with biblical middle names. My boys names are [name]Jalen[/name] [name]Timothy[/name], [name]Devin[/name] [name]Joseph[/name], [name]Cameron[/name] [name]Isaiah[/name], and [name]London[/name] [name]Elijah[/name]. I am now pregnant with a little girl. I’m due in [name]July[/name] and have not found the perfect name yet. I could either go with a unisex name that ends in a n or I can go with a more feminine name. My husband likes [name]Desaree[/name] [name]Ayana[/name], I like [name]Desaree[/name] but I dont know if I love it. I like the names [name]Sloan[/name], and [name]Haven[/name]. I appreciate any suggestions that you can give. As you can see I really need help with this one.

I would FOR SURE go with a feminine name. Since all your boys have fairly unisex names, your daughter will likely be mistaken for another brother.

I’m not exactly sure what [name]Desaree[/name] is supposed to be… what about:


[name]Desaree[/name] is variant of [name]Desiree[/name]`. I’m not sure how we would spell it if we were to use it since their are a few different spellings for it.

I’m going to have to say that I’m not really loving [name]Desaree[/name]/[name]Desiree[/name] - it just feels like it won’t stand the test of time, and wouldn’t work on a successful, professional woman. Sorry!

Some other names, sorry for repeats :

[name]Do[/name] any of these catch your fancy?

Good luck! [name]Auburn[/name]

[name]How[/name] about a name that ends in -n but is still definitely feminine? That way your daughter will fit with the rest of her siblings, but hopefully not be mistaken for a boy too often. To me, [name]Haven[/name] is always a girl. Here are some other suggestions:

[name]Emlyn[/name] ([name]Emmeline[/name]?)
[name]Rowan[/name] (too unisex?)

[name]Love[/name] the suggestion of ultra-feminine …
[name]Madeleine[/name] [name]Ruth[/name]
[name]Jocelyn[/name] [name]Eve[/name]

I am going to chime in here and make an official case for choosing a very feminine name for your daughter, though I think [name]Desaree[/name] is problematic on a lot of levels. As a name expert and also a mom who gave what turned out to be her only daughter a unisex name – [name]Rory[/name] – I would go as frilly as you can!

Some starting ideas:


[name]LOVE[/name] [name]LOVE[/name] [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Arabella[/name]

Also [name]Isadora[/name] is very pretty too. :slight_smile:

As many others have said, I think an ultra feminine name would compliment your unisex boy names. If you chose another unisex name for your daughter, people my assume she’s another son if they have never met her.
I think [name]Desaree[/name] is supposed to be [name]Desiree[/name]? As in dez-uh-[name]RAY[/name]? If you want to use it, I would go with the original spelling because [name]Desaree[/name] looks like deh-SAR-ree.
I’m not a big fan of [name]Ayana[/name], because the AY sound at the beginning mushes up with the [name]RAY[/name] sound at the end of [name]Desiree[/name].
I usually like the name [name]Sloan[/name], (but I prefer [name]Sloane[/name] with an E for a girl) but it’s unisex and as I have already mentioned, I don’t think its the best idea for your daughter to have a unisex name along with your sons. As for [name]Haven[/name], I know a not very nice girl in my school with that name. A lot of guys say “I’d love to be in [name]Haven[/name] right now” to her, so that’s probably not a connection you want.


If you like [name]Sloan/name, you may like:

[name]Shea[/name] (shay)

If you like [name]Haven[/name], you might like:


Some of these are still slightly unisex, but they are quickly going to the girl’s side.

I would continue the theme you have the first name with -n ending and biblical mn.

[name]Lillian[/name] [name]Ruth[/name]
[name]Adalyn[/name] [name]Mary[/name]
[name]Aislinn[/name] [name]Joanna[/name]

I second the suggestion of [name]Valentina[/name]!
