I love A names - my husband like the name Ali and I wanted a name that ended in ahhhhh SO we named our daughter Aliana - we have never heard another and people always comment that it is a beautiful name :)

My DD2's middle name is Acacia. We include some kind of tree name in all of our kids' names, I like the impression of strength and vitality it gives. This baby's middle name would have been Ash if she were a boy, though I think it could work for a girl, too.

One of my baby daughter's middle names is Agda. :)

I wanted to name DD Ayla, but it got vetoed pretty harshly by DH. Apparently there's a character in a video game (Chrono Trigger) that's an unintelligent cave woman. It' supposed to be a reference to Clan of the Cave Bear, the Earth's Children Series. The Earth's Children series eventually turned into a porn book series by the fourth book. 

 

How about the name Azalea? Azaleas are flowers which symbolize temperance, passion and womanhood.

And other A names inspired by flowers include:

 

 

Amaryllis - The meaning of amaryllis flowers is pride, timidity and splendid beauty. girl's name is pronounced am-ah-RILL-iss. It is of Greek origin, and the meaning of Amaryllis is "fresh, sparkling". Also the name of a flower. A poetic name for a simple shepherdess or country girl.

 

You could also go with a variant of Alice, such as Alise. http://www.thinkbabynames.com/meaning/0/Alice

 

 

Or how about Aida?

Rooting for Amaryllis!

 

Adding Ada. Sweet, simple.

I think of Amarillo Texas when I see/hear the name Amaryllis....Azalea sounds much prettier to me

Here's my list of A names for girls....many Spanish influenced.
post #30 of 61

I met an older woman named Aurelia at work on Friday.  I loved her name!

post #31 of 61

Glad you like Astrid. That's my name. :-)  I'm 38 years old and have yet to meet another Astrid in real life.  My daughter is named Ariana but she was named 10 years ago before it became more popular.

 

-Astrid

Alice....that's my middle name and it was my great grandmother's name....I even thought about naming my DD that but it was a no go for my DH...

post #34 of 61

Oooh ooh keep them coming. I love A names, but DH and I can never seem to agree on one. Now I've got lots to run by him.

 

The only one I can think of that's not on the list is fairly plain-- Addison. I just really want a nickname Addie.

 

I love Adlee for a boy, but it could be a nice girls middle name too.

Ainsley   - its a boys name , but i like it for a girl.

I love that idea of adding a tree name to each childs name...Acacia is great!

post #36 of 61

Aliza: it's a Hebrew name meaning 'joyful'. 

 

DD is Adelaide and I'm trying to convince DH that Aliza should be the new baby's name. We'll see.  smile.gif

I really like Anaya.  When I lived in So CA, here was a street near my house with that name.  The street we lived off of was Melinda and we were near a Margarita, Marguerite and Alicia.  We wanted our child to have a middle name that had some reference to our region, and I remember wishing we had used Anaya, although it wouldn't really fit with the first name very well.

post #40 of 61

well, i'm partial to amelia (dd's middle name).  not super unique, but it's also not very popular (at least i haven't met any amelias).  love it so much we kind of wish we'd saved it to use as a first name (if we have another girl).
