Oh, Shannon, I feel so much better now reading your post!
I've never thought about boys' names...for some reason it just felt irrelevant to me, and I couldn't care, which was ironic since I've *always* said I'd want to be a boy mom, and wouldn't know what to do with a girl! Go figure...by the time I did an u/s at 24 weeks, I would have been stunned if it wasn't a girl; I just KNEW. Thank god I was right.
I have a list, and I've just told people that I'm not selecting a name until after she's born, so I can see what sort of name might fit her. My gut feel on this baby is that she'll be a pretty calm, laid-back child, unlike her mom...there's something about her that comforts me (reversed roles)!
Here's what I have so far ... some of these are middle name options, definitely if they're one syllable, since my LN is a one syllable name. The meanings follow each.
Arden - Sincere
Audrey - Noble
Celeste - Heavenly
Haley/Hailey/Haylee - ingenious
Jocelyn - The merry one
Kyla - Attractive
Maya - Great one (also a goddess name)
Miranda - Admired
Quinn - Wise and intelligent
Riley - Valiant
Skylar - eternal life, strength, love and beauty
Tallullah / Talula - Leaping water (native am); prosperous lady (Irish)
Vivienne/Vivian - Life
Zoe - Life
