And ones that are unique, older, and go with a sibling named Sam.<br><br>
DH and I are at a loss for girl names, and I've got the girl vibe flowing!...

I'm having a problem with names too. We have a boy name. But can't think of any girl names that we like at all. I'm feeling kind of girly too.<br><br>
What kind of names do you like?

Right now I'm loving Amelia, Claire, Nora, Natalie - but all seem too plain right now. I need something a bit more unique.

We'd like a Biblical or Hebrew type name, to go with Noah..but no luck agreeing on one so far. We're not even Jewish, but I adore all the Hebrew names. Am I crazy?<br><br>

Eva<br>
Dinah<br>
Tovah<br><br><br>
but I also like:<br><br>
Claire (my fave of this list)<br>
Charlotte<br>
Lily<br>
Nora ( DS's intended name if he would have been a girl)<br>
Willow<br>
Elena<br>
Evelyn<br>
Amelia<br>
Jane<br>
Ruby<br>
Annamaria/ Annemarie<br>
Calla ( like the flower)<br>

Here's what's on my list for girls, not sure what will fit your criteria:<br>
Layla/Leila<br>
Lilah (that would work really well for you, I think!)<br>
Norah<br>
Gweneth<br>
Willa<br>
Eleri<br>
Anya<br>
Annie<br>
Noel<br><br>
And our two contenders for top picks (but I don't really care if you steal them, since I don't know you personally):<br>
Tirzah<br>
Piper

I like Helen or Sophie. Or maybe Hannie. Or Hattie. Lately I have been on a Winnie kick but DH refuses. Have you tried the Social Security website? You can look up the most popular names from about 1880-present. It is pretty neat- lots of names I have not heard in ages. I will edit to post a link...<br><br><a href="http://www.ssa.gov/OACT/babynames/" target="_blank">http://www.ssa.gov/OACT/babynames/</a><br><br>
If you enter some of the earlier years (I just did 1882 for the top 100) you really get a great list.
