I am in the same boat, but for a boy. We had picked out girl names (Sadie and Margo, anyone-feel free to steal one) but then we found out it's a boy and we've been stumped since. We have a short list of boy names, and we figure we'll name him when we see him. Also, we are both procrastinators who work more effectively under pressure! You'll work it out!

We like names that are classic but not overly popular, if anyone feels like helping!

Yes, I like alot of them. I think you tore up the book on baby names!!! I really like gaia, but I have a Kaya already (Ki-ya). Isis is awesome but hub will never go for that. Thanks for the ideas! I'm gonna continue reading!

We really don't have a name either - so know that you are not alone.

Here's what's on our short list: (And we will be choosing one of the three after she's born)
Charlotte Elizabeth
Emma Elizabeth
Gwenyth (No middle name)

Vanessa... Happily married to a paramedic - celebrating 10 years of marriage!  Mama to one crazy 6 year old transformer and one chatterbox 4 year old princess.  Daycare provider to many jumping beans  I'm expecting my third in late November.

If its a boy then we have had that name picked out for about 8 years

Ifs it a girl, well, we have a couple of names we are thinking of.

I am 'due' the 7th BUT we are hoping I go at least 8 days 'late'

My friend named her daughter Chloe Gaia, and her baby she just had Maya Laurie. You could use gaia as a middle name if you don't already have one picked out.

Here are some more random suggestions:

Zoe, Evelyn, Molly, Sierra, Shelby, Jade, Naomi, Sadie, Nadia, Veronica, Bella, Selena, Sienna, Claudia, Bridget, Raven, Iris, Sage, Genevieve, Skye, Tabitha, Liberty, Willow, Justice, Judith, Renee, Daphne, Simone, Monique, Penelope, Gwendolyn, Danica, Lyric, Gretchen, Journey, Amelie. Aura, Fiona, Rhiannon

I just can't pass up name threads--de-lurking from July DDC.

I like your described naming style a lot. I already have a Nora, and had this one been a girl, she'd probably have been one of these names:

Willa
Meredith
Hazel

Good luck!

We're going with Lilah Zinnia if its a girl. I also really like the name Piper, but hubby won't go with it and I think it sounds funny as Lilah Piper.
Good Luck!
