Hi girls-I haven't posted here in a long time-life has been crazy! In the last month or so, I quit my job to become an SAHM, my husband's business has taken off, and there has just been a lot of 'adjusting' to do. I'm so glad I had the chance to jump back on today. DH and I are anxiously waiting for our first and only daughter who is due on the 27th-but we still have no name for her. We have 2 boys-Jackson Mark and Spencer Richard. I am open to ANY suggestions and ideas-please let me know what your favorite girls' names are! Thanks in advance!

Do you have any "ground rules" or conditions? Dh teases me that we have too many -- no K sounds because of last name, easy to spell but not too common, preferably fits with Irish and Scottish heritage, we don't know anyone well who has that name, etc etc.

But here are a few of my girl faves that we aren't using and that seem like they'd fit well with your boys:

Chloe
Emme
Hannah
Caroline

You can see that these are "my" style and may not be yours at all but thought I'd throw a few out there!

We don't have a name yet either. It makes it harder that we don't know if this LO is a boy or girl!

Some girl names I like are

Elsie
Isabelle
Olivia
Madison

Good luck with the naming!!

Just wanted to say THANKS for all the ideas. I think we're getting closer to making a decision. DH really wants to use his mom's name-Jacqueline-as her middle name, and I'm agreeable to that. There are some beautiful ideas here, I can't wait to share with him when he gets home. Thanks again!

Eliana ("Elly-AHNA")

It means "God has answered my prayer" and if ds #2 had been a girl, that name really would have fit the bill...
