why are girl names so hard....help

I am pg. with #2 and cannot for the life of me think of any girl names that I actually can picture myself using. Hopefully, I will know the sex in 2 weeks and if it is a boy, than I wont have to worry about it. Here is a tentative list - but I really want new suggestions. I like names that are spunky yet would work on an adult, i dont mind boys names on girls but it isn’t a must and last names as first are okay. I really want it to have a nickname or be in and of itself nicknamey. I really want to stay out of the top 200 at least.
okay —

[name]Dessa[/name] (nn [name]Desi[/name])
[name]Penelope[/name] (nn [name]Poppy[/name])
[name]Eleanor[/name] (DH’s pick)(nn nora)- i dont think i could really use

That is our sad list — please any suggestions would be awesome. My DS is named [name]Dash[/name] so it should kind of “go” w/ that.

Here are some suggestions:


[name]Hi[/name]! From your list, I love [name]Penelope[/name], nn [name]Poppy[/name], and I also love [name]Eleanor[/name]! I read [name]Leah[/name]'s awesome list, and now I can’t remember a lot of her suggestions, so I’m really sorry for repeats!
