    Default Girls Name HELP!

    Two names we like are Demi and Isla.

    What do you think of when you see/hear these names? Stereotype them if you will.

    I am leaning more towards Demi as I think Isla is a bit too popular maybe? But hubby prefers Isla slightly more.

    I know two Islas and love the name. I don't really have a stereotypical idea of either of the names. Except I guess I think of Isla as being a prettier, more feminine name than Demi.

    Love Isla, it's what we were going to call DS if he was a girl.

    Do you think some people may have trouble pronouncing it when they see it written?

    I'd go with Demi as I prefer less popular names. They are both nice though.

    Default Girls Name HELP!

    I loooove Isla. I had chosen it for my now 7yo who turned out to be a boy. But yes I was concerned about a lifetime of mispronunciation :/
    And now I feel it's too popular so would prob choose something else myself.
