Less than two weeks left :/

We’re less than two weeks away from the birth of our final child and third daughter. I like several names… [name_f]Bridget[/name_f], [name_f]Emmaline[/name_f], [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f], [name_f]Serena[/name_f], [name_u]Lennox[/name_u], [name_f]Daphne[/name_f]… but I love none. I don’t feel like any of these are the name and honestly, even the style is pretty all over the board. Not to mention, some of them don’t fit my criteria anyways.

I know I don’t want anything popular. Nothing top 100. I’d prefer to stay away from names that begin with A, C, D, E, G, J, V for various reasons. I’m not into unique spellings or names that are trendy. My other daughters’ names are [name_f]Gretchen[/name_f] and [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f].

With my other daughters, I considered [name_f]Scarlet[/name_f], [name_f]Helena[/name_f], [name_f]Lilliana[/name_f], [name_f]Audrey[/name_f], [name_f]Alice[/name_f], [name_f]Clara[/name_f], [name_f]Olivia[/name_f], and [name_f]Sophia[/name_f] if that helps with “style”. Ultimately, most of these didn’t fit the criteria either. My name is [name_f]Jennifer[/name_f] and being born in the early 80s, I’ve grown to absolutely despise my name because it’s just so rampantly popular in my age group, so I’m very sensitive to popularity.

Any ideas? I’d love to at least have a list of 2-3 to take to the hospital with me. Thanks :slight_smile:

Gretchen, Cordelia, and…
I think Bridget would be so cute for their sister.

I also suffered from “like lots, love nothing” syndrome this pregnancy. What helped me break through that was to find a connection to a name. Once I did that it was like magic. I liked the name more than the others, started thinking about it, referring to the baby by it, and voila I fell in love with it. So that would be my suggestion. [name_m]Even[/name_m] a subtle connection like a name about water and you love the beach or had your wedding there or the first letter of a name of someone who was important to you. Or a name that reminds you of a special place to you.

Having said that, here are some suggestions that might appeal to you. Good luck!
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] #601, means “she who brings happiness” as all little girls do. :slight_smile: NN options: [name_f]Bea[/name_f], [name_u]Tris[/name_u], [name_f]Trixie[/name_f]
[name_f]Belle[/name_f] #1259, means “beautiful” and reminds me of Beauty and the Beast. I love the simplicity of [name_f]Belle[/name_f] as a given name rather than a nickname.
[name_f]Freya[/name_f] #908, means “a noble woman” and is timeless and classic although it sounds fresh at the same time.
[name_f]Kenna[/name_f] #997, means “beautiful” and is an old Scottish name.
[name_f]Lena[/name_f] #279, means “light” and was a character in a [name_m]Shakespeare[/name_m] story if you’re into literary connections.
[name_f]Lilah[/name_f] #312, means “dark beauty or night”.
[name_f]Mabel[/name_f] #707, means “lovable”.
[name_f]Maeve[/name_f] #484, means “intoxicating” and was the name of a legendary Irish [name_f]Queen[/name_f].
[name_f]Nadine[/name_f] #1428, “hope” and is a [name_m]French[/name_m] name.
[name_f]Susannah[/name_f] #2119, mean “lily” and is a great name if you love [name_f]Lily[/name_f] but it’s too popular because the meaning is still there. It also has a great connection to It’s a Wonderful Life, the littlest girl’s name was [name_f]Zuzu[/name_f] which can be a nickname for [name_f]Susannah[/name_f].
