Okay.... here's a name dilemma....

We had agreed on Katherine Grace pretty early on, and we've been set with that name, calling her Katie.

Wellll, we have **6** people in our lives who have recently had baby girls named Katelyn/Katie/Katherine and are calling the babies Katie.

AHHHHH. I am SERIOUSLY re-thinking it now!!

Here's the rules:
1. Name must be 100% classic.
2. Name must be a longish name that has a short nickname.
3. Preferably nickname is 5 letters long and ends in either y or y sound (like Katie is not a y but y sound, kwim?)

Names that are taken in our family (as in, my sister's kids or dogs
Alexander-- so no Alexandra

Soooo, what names fit my criteria? I know I'm picky, but my kid's gotta live with this name for life

Oh, and I prefer names that have lots and lots of nicknames that go with it. Like Libby is Elizabeth, so she can be Liz, Lizzie, Libby, Beth, Eliza, etc....

You know Christina is a lovely name....How about Libby and Christy? Or Chrissy...

Madeleine/Maddie is nice. I really like Wendy...but then you'd have to be OK with Gwendolyn for it to fit the pattern
How's it coming? Are you changing her name?
