Rain
Dana
Deanna

This reminded me of the name Isla (eye-la)!

DD#1 is Olivia Grace. Certainly not unique these days. But when we picked it out 5 years ago, we knew no one with either name. We thought it was very uncommon. LOL!

DD#2 is Janie Reese. We wanted this babe to have a really unique name and we wanted it to sound southern (we moved from Chicago to Florida when I was 39 weeks pregnant). I love this name! And Janie has *yet* to make it onto any popularity charts!

Our boys are Asher, Micah and Zephaniah. Old school Hebrew names from the Bible, but definitely unique!!

DD2 is Esmé Jeanette; named after J. D. Salinger's "For Esmé - with Love and Squalor" and long before the Twilight series came out...

(It's pronounced Ez-may)

Our DD, expected sometime this September, is named Jovie. We love that it means "joyous" :

My dd's name is Fayden. Weirdly enough, I had a dream a month or two after DH and I started dating about being on vacation with his mom and my brother and a little toddler named Fayden who was my daughter in the dream. (Before that dream, every time my mother told me she loved me more, I told her no way - after that dream, I somehow knew that mothers loved their children more than their children could ever love them - I really truly FELT the mommy love in that dream!!)

Anyway, when I turned up pregnant with a girl a few months later, I just KNEW it was her, so I named her Fayden after the girl in the dream.

If you're really looking for something unique, maybe search meanings of names? Look for some quality you wish for her to have or some blessing you hope her to find in her life?

I'm not the original poster of Niamh, but it is my niece's name too. It's a gaelic name and from what I remember an mh at the end of a name is pronounced "v", but if a v sound is in the middle of a name it's represented with a bh, like Siobhan. My sister-in-law's family is from Ireland, so she's very keen on keeping all thing Irish. When someone reads my niece's name, they tend to pronounce it like Liam, with an N!

My DD is Jubilee. I like that it basically means "freedom". One of her middle names is Jane, so we figure if she grows up to hate her first name, she can always go by a more "normal" name.

I grew up with an unusual name (Kirstin) and while I got tired of correcting people who call me Kristin, I have always liked not knowing anyone else with the same name as me. I hope DD feels special for her name too.

BekahMomTo Oliver, I *Love* the name Jovie (I have a thing for 'J' names)!!

Names we like for future girls:

Tallullah
Jordan
Frieda/ Freeda (for my great-gma)
Dessie (another gma)

I am a mother to only boys, Dakota and Keegan,
but my name is unusual. My name is Golden.
Sure I got teased and called Golden Retreiver as a kid, but as an adult, I love it. Sure is a conversation starter!

Freya

Juniper
Rosabel
We just named ours Freya! We thought it was really rare but are finding girls named Freya everywhere now. Her whole name is actually Alunada Freya Paxton. Alunada is what my other daughter made up and was calling my belly, so we let her sister name her. Come to find out Alunada is a real word and means "lunatic" in spanish. We are using "Freya" mostly now.

Our top two girl's names at the moment are

Freya Juliet

and

Lyric Rose


I love Lyric. FH was not so keen at first but he is liking it more now.

Well, DH got to choose our DD's first name, and none of the names I liked really fit with it, so I ended up choosing Rose as it's in keeping with the kind of old-fashioned, genteel feeling I get with Eleanor, but it's a different kind of name too if she wants to use her middle name when she's older. Little did I realise at the time how popular both of those names were becoming!

If we have another girl in the future my short-list contains:

Sadhbh It's Irish, pronounced Sive to rhyme with five
Saoirse Again, Irish (guess where I'm from!) pronounced SEAR-shuh (means freedom)
Sinead Irish, shin-AID
Aisling Irish, ASH-lin(g) means dream

I like the idea of continuing with flower/plant names for middle names but having a hard time coming up with ones that go with the names I've got. I like Sage in combination with Aisling, but it doesn't go with the others for me.

I don't know of anyone with that name currently
DD2 is Aevryn pronounced with a long A and a short i (ay-vrin). people seem to freak out that the e is before the v instead of after, though.

Her middle name is Elise. It's perfect and I love it.

DD1 is Lilliana Lauise. Named after my grandma. We call her Lily. She is the fourth generation with that middle name (grandma, mom , me, her). I hope she continues the tradition if she has a daughter someday.

We're not TTC#3 until the end of the year, but of course I've already thought about names.

We like: Freya (sounds super popular all of a sudden), Willow, Artemesia, and Isolde.

I have a niece Adelaide (Addie) and a niece Edith. I also know of a new baby named Adeline and I know of on older child named Adelaine (Lainey). I love all these "old" names coming back into use.

I love name threads!
My name is Eden so I must have girls named after plants I just love the garden theme. How silly right? Boys would have been the same but dh nixed it right away!

Anyway,
oldest dd is Laurelle (Laurel) and for a 14 year old it is actually quite common...just not the spelling...for a bay born now...I don't even think its on the list anymore

Youngest dd is Yarrow

others we considered:

Linden
Juniper
Cedar
Clover
Poppy
