Need Inspiration!

I am due in [name]November[/name] with my second baby-the gender will be a surprise. That being said, up until this week I realized that I could actually have a little girl! I just assumed since I have a boy this next one will be a boy. I am all over the place for girl names but not 100% on anything. I tend to lean towards classic names-my son’s name is [name]Jacob[/name] [name]Henry[/name] and I love nicknames but dont call my son [name]Jake[/name]. Actually, I dont have one for him(he is 2.5) besides “lover boy”. One huge problem is that I am slightly older"36" than most of my friends and family members that have had all their kids; therefore, my pickings are slim. Here are some of my favorites:

First names
[name]Elizabeth[/name]-I love [name]Libby[/name]
[name]Emma[/name]-I know its popular but I love emmy for a nn
[name]Isabella[/name]- I don’t love as much as the other two

[name]Sophia[/name]-old family name

Any [name]Inspiration[/name] or combos would be helpful!

Of your favourites, [name]Elizabeth[/name] would be my pick. I love the versatility of the name and the variety of nicknames that it offers, as well as the fact that it ages well and will never date. I also think [name]Emma[/name] and especially [name]Isabella[/name] are beautiful, too, but they are very popular at the moment, which puts me off personally.

If you like [name]Emme[/name] but want something a little less popular than [name]Emma[/name], you could try :

You might also like the unusual flower name [name]Camelia[/name]; “[name]Immy[/name]” as a nickname for [name]Imogen[/name] or [name]Imelda[/name]; and [name]Demi[/name], perhaps as a nickname for [name]Demeter[/name].

If you like [name]Isabella[/name], you might also like :

I think all of your middle name options are lovely names, and would be great! If you go for a longer first name, especially something very feminine such as [name]Mirabella[/name], a one syllable middle would balance the name out nicely, so [name]Claire[/name], [name]Jane[/name] or [name]Pearl[/name].

I really like [name]Anna[/name] with the more unusual but not as girly [name]November[/name] - [name]November[/name] [name]Anna[/name]. However, I also think that [name]November[/name] [name]Jane[/name] would be the greatest, spunkiest name.

With shorter choices like [name]Giselle[/name], I especially like [name]Juliet[/name] or [name]Sophia[/name]. [name]Giselle[/name] [name]Juliet[/name] would let you use the sweet and glamorous nickname [name]Gigi[/name], too.

Good luck! [name]Auburn[/name]


Of your favorites, [name]Elizabeth[/name] and [name]Emma[/name] are my favorites. However, I think I’d use [name]Eliza[/name] and [name]Emmeline[/name] instead, personally, as those are slightly more vintage and unusual. [name]Do[/name] you like [name]Eliza[/name] [name]Claire[/name] or [name]Emmeline[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]? I think both would be great with [name]Jacob[/name] [name]Henry[/name], which is really handsome, by the way.

Other names you might like as first names are [name]Adelaide[/name], [name]Caroline[/name], [name]Flora[/name], [name]Gwendolen[/name], [name]Helena[/name], [name]Julia[/name], [name]Lydia[/name], [name]Matilda[/name], [name]Ramona[/name], [name]Sarah[/name], or [name]Violet[/name]. You’ve got plenty of options in classics, unless all of your friends and family have chosen that style, too. [name]Even[/name] if that was the case, there are plenty of names out there! I think [name]Gwendolen[/name] [name]Pearl[/name], [name]Helena[/name] [name]Claire[/name], [name]Lydia[/name] [name]Jane[/name], or [name]Caroline[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] would all be great with [name]Jacob[/name]!
