I like Nora too. I also like Scarlett. And I don't know if you have ever heard it but there is a song Lola. And if you have heard it, you wouldn't want to name your daughter that. It is an older song but Lola is a man, a man dressed like a woman. It actually upsets me because people confuse Layla with Lola and have sung it in front of me<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: , it doesn't help that Layla still barely has hair and gets confused as a boy. I think we will do itunes searches for any names we choose

Ok, here's my views. Nothing personal against you of course, just what I think of these names. Some factors like popularity or trends might not be a concern for you:<br><br>
Lola - Love it. Classic, cute, spunky and unusual.<br>
Nora - Very nice, but somewhat popular.<br>
Lily - Very popular at the moment.<br>
Holly - Cute. Maybe a bit too "Christmas" for my taste.<br>
Brooke - Not my style. I dislike gender neutral names.<br>
Drew - Ditto - this is a very boy name for me.<br>
Margo - OK, but would prefer the traditional spelling of Margot. Without the "t" it almost looks like you've written Mango.<br>
Scarlett - Nice, but fairly popular.<br>
Morgan - Not my style, another gender nuetral one.<br><br>
Good luck deciding!!

You said honest right? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
Lola - Stripper name<br>
Nora - Love this as a nn for Eleanor but I don't like it alone<br>
Lily - Again great nn for Lillian, Lilia or Lillianne, not alone<br>
Holly - Sweet<br>
Brooke - Ok<br>
Drew - Boy name<br>
Margo - Like as a nn for Margaret but not alone<br>
Scarlett - Like this<br>
Morgan - Ok but a bit trendy<br><br>
Have fun deciding <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>

I am a little biased- I have known people by almost all these names, except Morgan and Scarlett. Who said Lola was a stripper name? She may be right- but every stripper named lola that I ever met was a real knockout- so maybe not a bad choice.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I love the name Scarlett. I was very close to being named Katie Scarlett, after Scarlett O'Hara. I also like the name Lily. I am not partial to any of the other names on your list.

Hmmm...lots of pp seem to like Scarlett, but I just don't. I don't have any reason to not like it, just a personal thing I guess! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I love Brooke! One of my closest friends in highschool was a Brooke.<br><br>
Have fun picking a name!

OK - here's my honest thoughts:<br><br>
Lola - name of Kelly Ripa's DD and nn of Madonna's DD<br>
Nora - nerdy but sweet<br>
Lily - delicate, seems to be getting more popular<br>
Holly - LOVE It and every Holly I've known has been awesome and independent<br>
Brooke - seems less common than it used to be, pretty<br>
Drew - "oh, were you hoping for boy #4?" - I LOVE the name, but with 3 boys I'd go for a less GN name<br>
Margo - soap opera name<br>
Scarlett - pretty, but forever linked with Gone with the Wind, which for me has negative connotations.<br>
Morgan - I really like this one too, makes me think of a goddess.

I was torn between voting for Brooke or Drew, but I also really like Lily, Holly, Margo, and Morgan. Really all the names you listed are nice!
