    I like Grace and Paige too.

    I can think of 5 babies named Charlotte without even trying, I'm sure I could think of more if I tried. It's very popular at the moment!

    Having said that, we used a common name and I am yet to come across another bub with DDs name.

    In the first line of your post you referred to your bub as 'poppy seed', why not call her Poppy?

    You could give her a grown up name with the nickname Poppy, if you like. But poppy is nice just how it is..
    IMO.

    But, from your list, Grace and Lilly are my two's middle names, so I'm biased toward those.

    Yay!!! Girl!!! I find girls' names much easier than boys' names. Charlotte is also lovely (Charlie for a nickname).

    How about some variations on the names you already have on your list: e.g. Lilliana, Charlise

    There's a great website called Nymbler (www.nymbler.com), where you put in names you like & it generates a list of similar sounding names.

    It is so much fun!
    Thks Funchu! I will have to check that at out

    I would LOVE that!! I have always loved flower names - poppy, Lilly, rose, dahlia. But DF hates them with a passion and thinks they are all old fashioned Nanna names. He compromised to allow Lilly in.. But it is usually only referred to as a potential middle name.

    You have all pointed out the same thing that I didn't love about Charlotte. It's very common and as pretty as it is- I tend to prefer names that strike a good balance between 'not too unique and not too common'

    Peyton is cute!

    I did also wonder if Mason was too masculine. I suggested Maisie/Macy for short.. As DF thought Maisie as an actual full name was too juvenile as an adult.

    Ugh it so hard. And DF being super fussy isn't helping.

    Charlotte is so beautiful but so popular. I like traditional names also and have names my two daughters:
    Isabel Olive
    Eliza Poppy
    I love Scarlet too!

    Good luck!!

    To me, Parker and Mason are male names. Maisie is actually short for Maryann. I think it's cute.

    On my girl name list I had Alice, Abby, Olivia, Leah, Emma, Eliza, Chloe, Sadie, Rebekah and Sophie.

    From your list I like Lilly best, except that it is bordering on extremely common.
