    Default Still stuck on girls names

    Hi everyone, interested in opinions on our girls name list. So far we have:

    Carys Lily G
    Sienna Grace G (Sienna is a bit too common for my liking now??)
    Cora Vivienne G

    I also like the name Etta, yet to convince DP tho, haha.

    And Reigan and Beatrix are in the maybe pile. Reigan doesn't flow as nicely with last name as others on the list, and as for Beatrix, DS name ends in x, I don't know if I want two out of three kids names ending in x?

    Lois has also been thrown around, not sure if it is too middle-aged-American-woman? I think it could be funky on the right person, not sure I can see it on a baby? Would probably get Lo or Lolly for nn when young?

    Naming another person is hard! 😓

    Names are really hard, feels like such a big responsibility!

    I really like Carys. I've always liked that name. Sienna is beautiful too - it is common but I don't think that really matters. DD has a name that is always in the top names lists but I rarely actually come across another child with her name.

    Like Cora and Etta, not a fan of Carys sorry. It's so hard! Hope you can come to an agreement!

    I've always loved the name Regan. But it always reminds me of the little girl in The Exorcist! Which is kinda a cool thing, too
    I used to use the name "Cora" on another internet chat/forum, I love that too and it's not a name you hear all the time.
    Sienna is lovely but like you said, it's getting fairly common these days.
    Lois... Probably not one I'd go for. I get what you're saying though, it's definitely different and would be unique for a little girl. It also ages well.
    Beatrix I just dislike altogether, sorry. A girl I went to school with was Beatrice and she was a horrid little bully so it's ruined for me.
    Not a fan of Carys or Etta.
