Well, for the possibility that this baby I'm carrying is a girl...I've got a list made up!
I'm really loving the name Eliza, right now, and if this baby is a girl (find out in four day! Eek!) she will most likely be named Eliza! We love the way it goes with our DDs name, Avery. Avery and Eliza...best sisters ever!
Some other I love:
Hazel (I know, common now)
I think girls names are so much EASIER than boys! Boys are hard!
Me and DH ...lovin' DD (6/08) and DS (11/09) Plus NEW BABY!! DD (UC-5/12) We Water Birth/Homebirth/No Vax or Circ/BF/BW/Country Livin'!
Eila ( pronounce i-la),
Aurora ( Rory).
I also like Remi, but can't decide if it's a girl or boys name.
ETA: I'm iffy about Rue. It means regret and I don't like that!!

Our considerations were:
Easy to spell and pronounce, but not too common (at least around here). We actually like that it's a common name in a few languages. People always say they love the name when they hear it; but we haven't heard of a single other Carmen anywhere, child or adult.
Ideally applicable to either gender. I loved that I could name my child without knowing what the sex would be.
Feminine, but strong-sounding.
If we have another girl, I SO would want the name Bella. It's probably my favourite name ever. But dh thinks 2 girls named Carmen and Bella would sound a bit much. I just love the romance and drama.
My favorite girls names are:
My top choice was Gretta, but DH nixed it. On another thread here, I saw Fable for a girl and am currently in love with that name.
Mallory. Happily married to Joe since 6/25/05. Loving my adventure with my girls, Owyn Samantha, born 3/1/09. and Greta June, born 11/2/11
I love it. It's the female version of Thor - which fits me perfectly But, there are many other variations as well. I get a lot of compliments on it, and although I always have to correct people on the pronunciation I don't care b/c I don't know anyone else with my name.
Natalie~ I also love the name Eliza and think it goes well with Avery! I'm all about sibling names "fitting"
We have 3 girls and 2 on the way. Their first names aren't unique to me just old fashioned. Their middle names are Tolkien related. Still people think they are "different" names so I hope it's ok that I share!
Ok my 5 girls are (I'm adding their middle names because I love their full names and I am one of those moms who uses both in addressing them )...
and coming soon...
(of course they aren't born yet so those could change)
Other names we have thought of (first names only)...
Hazel (getting more common)
Willow (getting more common)
And my full name is Jacqulyn. It hasn't been on any of the Top Name lists in 10 or so years.
I always loved the name Sage, but DP said we might as well name her Celery.
The only annoying part is that no one can spell it! There are a few kids around here named micah so they tend to spell it like that, and of course never say it right when they see it written.
Well, my daughter's name is Lilah. I wanted to name her Delilah but DH dislikes biblical names so we compromised and I am happy with it. If our third is a girl, we are considering the names:
I'm kind of stuck on Johanna, Opal, and Bernadette...but I just don't know
If we ever have another girl (which I doubt since we strongly want dd to be an only), we are considering:
b/b Silas (we were set on this as a boys name) & Avery
g/g Iris & Sylvia
but we could not agree on a girl name to go with Silas. The tech slipped up at my 20 week u/s and let us know we were having b/g twins, so we started making lists. It wasn't until a few weeks before they were born that we finally agreed on Silas & Mira (meer uh when people read it they tend to pronounce it Myra). Now almost everytime someone asks their names they've heard of another toddler named Silas, but no other Mira's. It's funny, because I don't think of her name as uncommon, but she does get compliments on it regularly. And though it's not her name, we frequently call her Mirabella.
Olive (my mom's middle name...good thing we didn't use it, DD is skinny, dark and tall!)
Jane (couldn't get over the plain Jane saying, even though I think it's pretty)
I also liked
Sigh. I'm pretty sure ds will be my only, so I am a little sad about parting with these names!
Alexandra (but called Alex)
I like my name, but didn't want to name my DDs after me:
Instead, we named them:
We picked Annabel pretty quickly, but have come to really love the sound of Isadora. Both are good for nicknames, you can see our in my siggy below.
