    Default Girls names are HARD!!

    Dh and I are having heaps of trouble picking a name for our little girl, i feel like I can settle on a boys name 3 times over! I just dont LOVE any of our girls names.

    Currently our favourites are Brooklyn, Taylor, Ashlee, with Olivia, Chloe and Zooey as second names. I also love Ameera and Riely but I have a cousin Riely and know an Ameera.

    Any suggestions or opinions you have would be amazing! Looking through lists is just not working.

    I'm having the problem with boys names! With our other 2 children once we new what we were having & just focus on either boys or girls names it was easier I think.

    I've got Stella violet picked for a girl & boys well my list & DH list are very different. Only another 3 weeks til we find out so we will leave the battles until then!

    Try Nymbler.com. You type in names you like & it generates lists if similar names.

    From your list, I like Zooey as a first name (I love Zooey Deschanel). You can also spell it Zoe. Chloe is also a lovely name.

    From your list I love Ashlee and Zoe. (I don't like it spelt Zooey as it looks like a place animals live!)
    I had so many boys names I loved and no girls names, and ended up with two girls

    I love Brooklyn, Chloe and Ameera.
    Brooklyn because it's different, strong and nice.
    Chloe because it's classic, pretty, gentle and beautiful.
    Ameera because it's exotic.

    We have such similar taste, our daughters name is Brooke and runner up names were Chloe and Ashleigh!

    I love all your names :-D

    I think Riely can be taken off, as much as i love it for a girls name ive decided it doesnt go well with our last name, and its too close having a male cousin Riley.

    Now I cant think of zooey the same, I thought it was much more feminine spelt like that but now all I can see is zoo. Maybe Zoey instead

    I've had the hardest time finding a girls name I love.
    My short list before I made my final decision was:
    Sasha
    Amelia
    Harper
    Piper
    Laura
    Matilda (nickname Matty)

    I had a HUGEEEE list for ages though.
