Girl name ideas: 2 syllables, unique, easy to spell

[name_m]Hi[/name_m], everyone! I’m new here and was hoping to get a brainstorming session rolling. My husband and I are expecting a girl this [name_u]December[/name_u], and while we’ve found names we like, we haven’t found anything that we’re really excited about. We seem to agree on 2 syllable names, and we want something that is unique but also easy to spell (or to easy to guess its spelling). It can be completely made up, as long as when you hear it, you can take a pretty good guess as to how it should be spelled. We also want to stay out of the top 100 names.

Here are the names we like, but haven’t fallen totally in love with (just to give you an idea of what we like)…

Some names we’ve both liked: [name_f]Jovie[/name_f], [name_f]Tia[/name_f], [name_u]Carmen[/name_u], [name_f]Noelle[/name_f] (Noey), [name_f]Capri[/name_f].

We also really like [name_u]Winter[/name_u], but our last name is [name_m]Hale[/name_m], so we’re hesitant about [name_u]Winter[/name_u] [name_m]Hale[/name_m] (do you hear it?) and W. [name_m]Hale[/name_m]. :wink:

My husband also likes [name_u]Scout[/name_u] (he’s a lawyer, and I’m a literature professor) and [name_u]Pepper[/name_u].

Names I keep getting suggested to me that I’ve cast aside for one reason or another (mostly because they are too popular): [name_u]Harper[/name_u], [name_u]Piper[/name_u].

Any and all suggestions are appreciated, even if they don’t fit every single point of our criteria. Thanks for reading!

Out of your picks, the one I like most is [name_u]Carmen[/name_u] [name_m]Hale[/name_m] and least is definitely [name_u]Winter[/name_u] [name_m]Hale[/name_m], even though I love the thought of it!

[name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m]
[name_f]Autumn[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m] (wouldn’t have the same problem as [name_u]Winter[/name_u])
[name_f]Willow[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m] (but W. [name_m]Hale[/name_m] again, which I agree would be unfortunate)
[name_f]Poet[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m]
[name_f]Gretel[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m]
[name_f]Astrid[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m]
[name_f]Esme[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m]
[name_f]Pippa[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m] (in between [name_u]Piper[/name_u] and [name_u]Pepper[/name_u]?)
[name_f]Maxine[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m]
[name_f]Lyra[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m]
[name_f]Freya[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m]
[name_f]Margo[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m]
[name_f]Maya[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m]
[name_f]Iris[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m]
[name_f]Ivy[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m]
[name_f]Nova[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m]

If you were willing to bend at all on the 2-syllable rule:
[name_f]Vienna[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m]
[name_f]Indigo[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m]
[name_f]Geneva[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m]
[name_f]Delilah[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m]

Best of luck! Sorry for any repeats.

[name_f]Brynna[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m]
[name_m]Lynzie[/name_m] [name_m]Hale[/name_m] ([name_m]Lynzie[/name_m] isn’t my real name so that’s not why I’m suggesting it. I think it’s a very pretty name and goes well with [name_m]Hale[/name_m])
[name_f]Maddie[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m] ([name_m]Even[/name_m] though its popular I think it flows very well with [name_m]Hale[/name_m])
[name_u]Paris[/name_u] [name_m]Hale[/name_m]
[name_f]Rianne[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m] (or however you want to spell it - [name_u]Ryan[/name_u], Riyan, etc)
[name_f]Molly[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m]
[name_f]Kylie[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m]
Marsan [name_m]Hale[/name_m]
[name_f]Cassie[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m]
[name_f]Gia[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m]
[name_f]Zoey[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m]
[name_u]Penna[/name_u] [name_m]Hale[/name_m]
[name_f]Jaynie[/name_f] [name_m]Hale[/name_m]

Sorry for any repeats or any names that didn’t meet your criteria…
[name_f]Hope[/name_f] this helps!
