View Full Version : Need your help - Having trouble with girl names
Hi everyone - I am due to have my first baby in 4 months and I have found out it's a girl!!!! Had the boy name picked before I got pregnant but I'm finding girls names are the hardest. I have a few my husband and I like so I would love your opinions.
Hi Amy - I like all those names, except Georgia. Does your surname start with G? Will Giselle and Georgia go with your surname?
Just a few of my favs.
My last name is Gray. I not very into Georgia myself but my hubby is. I do like Holly as well see this is the problem I have to many I like!!
Holly is nice. Of the ones you listed originally I think I like Lila best. It reminds me of a friend's daughter named Lina.
Poppy & Scarlett are my fav's off your list!!!
If we have a girl we are going with Ella Grace.
I also love...
Lucy, Cate, Piper & Annie.
I really like Lila and Scarlett.
If we have a girl we will have an Amelia Mary.
My DH also likes Elke, but it sounds horrible with our last name.
I used to also like Eva / Ava but they sound a bit harsh to me now.
Good luck! :)
Thanks ladies I think it's between Lila or Scarlett. What do you think of Joan as the middle name it's after my nan?
'Lila Joan' sounds gorgeous, kinda like a 1920s silent movie star. I think it's great to have a middle name linked to a past generation of women in your family, and it'll be significant to your daughter too later in her life.
I gotta say I also liked Giselle, what a luscious name and a beautiful ballet...
My DD is Piper. I have Lila and Scarlett on my short list for my current bubba girl due in Jan. I love that you are naming her after someone, we did too and it was a very old-fashioned J name for a middle name, but it works well. I love the idea of giving my kids a middle name after someone special. I personally want to call my next little girl Luka, but DH is totally against it....dang.
i LIKE THE NAME SHARNI
The best idea is to find one of your most wittiest friends who can then pick your name choices to pieces, turning them into teasing names, nick names etc. The name they have the most trouble picking on, should be the name for you!
When pregnant with baby no.1 I tried the Atlas in desperation and found some really funky names.
Some friends have had a Leilani and some others a Leila. I would never have picked them, but they are lovely.
I love Lila and Scarlet from your list, they are two on my faves as well! Although I think all of your names are really nice...... Im sure you will find the perfect name for your princess! Good Luck! :)
I love lila also like lola or layla !!!!
I also love Poppy ..... I called my baby girl Isabella (Bella) but for some reason we have always called her Poppy as a nickname ....... yet when we had her we didn't even think of Poppy as a name !!!!!
Some of my favourites are
Had a friend that called her little girl Sierra Rose the other day ..... thought that was really cute !!!!
The lady that installed my broadband the other day has a grandaughter called Drucilla - never heard of that one before !!!!
Love All The Names On Your List Especially Piper. I Named One Of My Girls Camille, I Love Her Name. I Changed The Spelling To Make It More Original, Camielle. Good Luck
I like lila and scarlett from your list
They are so pretty!
I also love the name Scarlett.
Others I also like are:
And I really like Adara, but everyone I've told hates it!
My two cents....I think Scarlett Joan Gray (sp?) sounds fantastic! :)
i love the name Lila but im not very keen on any of the others. especially poppy...no offense but its just weird!
Lila is lovely though. Perhaps you could have Rose as the middle name? or Grace?
All the best!
I love Lily and Scarlett though my husband always says 'Scarlett the harlot'
We actually have Amy picked out for a girl in the very unlikely event that we ever have one!
I love the name Giselle!!
OMG, if you name it Lila Joan my girl could practically be a twin (in name!)
excuse me I need sleep I think :D
I love Scarlett, scarlett gray... big fan of colors ... Lila's very nice, Lola I can't get past because it's my grandmothers name and she absolutely hates it :p and I'd be one of those 'friends' who says something like Layla could be traumatic for a girl through highschool.
My sister mentioned I should call my girl Olive... nice name, then she started laughing. Her reason? Olive, because it's already stuffed :o (and shes supposed to be the sensible Older Sister!)
oh btw lillyas full name is Lillya Belinda Joan (joan i also got from my grandmother, and remembered that she also gave my mum the idea to name me belinda - my middle name-so she got 2 mentions!)
Get everyone's opinion, as mum pointed out after I name Lillya, that her initials are LBJ and started saying "All the way with LBJ" ...meh :rolleyes:
