Hello,

Anybody with good baby names out there willing to share? We're looking for something traditional, uncommon, pretty, w/ more than one syllable, and doesn't rhyme with Will (e.g. we ruled out Jillian).

So far we're thinking about
Carolyn
Beatrice
Lily
Charlotte

Help, please!

I'm from the June DDC -- hope you don't mind...

But it sounds like you want a similar name as us. We've thought of:
Evelyn, Amelia, Nova, Celeste, Eva, Fiona, and Violet.

Right now I think Evelyn Christine is the frontrunner.

I am partial to Sierra That is what we named our last DD Sierra Faith~ Sierra for the mountain that I had to climb to get her(figuratively I was on bedrest for 13 weeks) & Faith because it took a lot of Faith to make it~

Evelyn
Gretchen
Heidi
Tessa (I love this name, but doesn't sound so great with our last name- I think it sounds nice with Will)

I love most of the names you've picked--Charlotte and Lily are lovely, and I like Beatrice, too. In the "traditional pretty" name category, I also like Violet and Olivia, as well as Annabel or Annabeth.

Good luck!

Thanks for the great suggetions! Lots of the names you mentioned were on our list at some point. I think we might have to meet her before we decide. Best wishes to you all.

We are torn between Emmeline and Annabelle. Both ultrafeminine and classic. We also plan to meet her first. I can't tell if they rhyme with Will or not. There are some "L"s in there though.

If mine is a girl, she will be Eva Renee. Now I have to learn how to type the e with the accent mark over it. LOL
