[name]Stella[/name]
[name]Samantha[/name]
[name]Natalie[/name]

for our future dd (baby due in [name]March[/name] so, of course, don’t know gender yet)… just trying to come up with some names for both girl and boy:-) thanks…

[name]Elizabeth[/name] - This is my preference, because it is timeless, elegant, and beautiful.
[name]Harper[/name] - I like [name]Harper[/name], but it is trendy.
[name]Laurel[/name] - [name]Laurel[/name] is just OK.
[name]Paige[/name] - I dislike [name]Paige[/name] as a first name, but like it as a middle name.
[name]Stella[/name] - I think [name]Stella[/name] is best as a nickname for a longer name like [name]Estella[/name].
[name]Samantha[/name] - [name]Samantha[/name] is growing on me, but I am not crazy about it.
[name]Natalie[/name] - I kind of like [name]Natalie[/name].
[name]Claire[/name] - [name]Claire[/name] is pretty, but a little boring.
[name]Clara[/name] - I dislike [name]Clara[/name].
[name]Lucy[/name] - Cute. I would use it as a nickname for [name]Lucille[/name] or [name]Luciana[/name].

[name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]LOVE[/name]
[name]Harper[/name] very trendy, NMS
[name]Laurel[/name] NMS
[name]Paige[/name] NMS
[name]Stella[/name] [name]LOVE[/name] [name]LOVE[/name] [name]LOVE[/name] Cute, known, easy to spell, nice meaning- blends with the “ell” crowd without being an [name]Ella[/name].
[name]Samantha[/name] Nice
[name]Natalie[/name] Nice
[name]Claire[/name] [name]LOVE[/name] [name]LOVE[/name] [name]LOVE[/name] clean, classic, strong, girly but not frilly. Probably like it slightly more than [name]Stella[/name] as it suits all ages better.
[name]Clara[/name] NMS

I love these:

[name]Elizabeth[/name]
[name]Laurel[/name] (this name is so beautiful and underused!)
[name]Claire[/name]
[name]Lucy[/name]
[name]Natalie[/name]

I like [name]Stella[/name] a lot, but depending where you are it could be very popular, same for [name]Harper[/name], but probably even more popular.
[name]Don[/name]'t mind [name]Natalie[/name] but prefer [name]Nathalie[/name] spelling.

[name]LOVE[/name] [name]Clara[/name] if you mean Clah-ra pn (dislike [name]Clair[/name]-uh) and suggesting the nn [name]Ari[/name] for this.

I love [name]Lucy[/name], [name]Clara[/name] and [name]Laurel[/name], but honestly, all those names are fabulous :slight_smile:

I love [name]Elizabeth[/name], [name]Paige[/name], and [name]Samantha[/name]. I like [name]Lucy[/name] as a middle name ([name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Lucy[/name] or [name]Samantha[/name] [name]Lucy[/name]?). I think [name]Paige[/name] could also work as a middle name. [name]Claire[/name] is okay, but I’d only use it as a middle name.

[name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Claire[/name] has a nice ring to it.

[name]Elizabeth[/name] is a gorgeous classic
[name]Harper[/name] is too trendy for me & kinda sounds like heartburn…sorry!
[name]Laurel[/name] is really pretty & sweet [name]Laurel[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] is gorgeous!
[name]Paige[/name] is ok
[name]Stella[/name] is ok I like [name]Estella[/name] better or [name]Estelle[/name]
[name]Samantha[/name] is nice but I know quite a few
[name]Natalie[/name] is perfectly nice but for some unknown reason I dislike it!
[name]Claire[/name] is pretty but I like [name]Clara[/name] better
[name]Clara[/name] is really pretty & sweet. [name]Clara[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] is really pretty.
for our future dd (baby due ino, of course, don’t know gender yet)… just trying to come up with some names for both girl and boy:-) thanks…[/QUOTE]

[name]Laurel[/name] - This is really growing on me. Feels unusual, yes common. If that makes sense. A modern version of [name]Lauren[/name]
[name]Paige[/name] - have never liked paige, I don’t find it pretty at all
[name]Samantha[/name] - This name was quite popular, it seems to have faded a bit - still quite nice

These fall into the - Trendy/popular but I can see why, they are nice
[name]Harper[/name]
[name]Stella[/name]

These all fall into the - I am soo tired of hearing them - category
[name]Elizabeth[/name]
[name]Natalie[/name]
[name]Claire[/name]
[name]Clara[/name]
[name]Lucy[/name]

[name]Elizabeth[/name]-Lots of potential for cute nicknames, but overall a very tired, boring name. Never been a fan
[name]Harper[/name]-I love this name, but I do worry about the popularity in the near future
[name]Laurel[/name]-Like this name. Would never stand out as amazing to me though
[name]Paige[/name]-This name has spunk to me, but I also agree with others that it would make a great middle name
[name]Stella[/name]-Always been one of my all time favorites and sad that’s it now getting so popular when I’m in my baby-making years :slight_smile:
[name]Samantha[/name]-[name]Love[/name] the nickname [name]Sam[/name], but could take or leave the full name
[name]Natalie[/name]-Great, solid name
[name]Claire[/name]-Great name, very classy
[name]Clara[/name]-Never liked this as well as just [name]Claire[/name]
