    Default Baby girl names you wish you could have used

    Would some some inspiration... I have been trying to conceive for 4 years now. I have had a boys name picked for that whole time that I'm still in love with but have recently gone off our favourite girls name. I'm making a list so when I finally get my miracle I'm armed with plenty of choices to go through with picky dp. I like unusual names, unisex names and a few traditional names. Would love to hear names you loved but maybe didn't have the nerves to go with because it was too unusual... or maybe something you loved but didnt suit your last name.... or something you just couldn't agree on. Tell me your "Wish you could of" girls names 😊 mine are:

    Dp hated-
    Eva
    Indigo
    Mahalia
    Rosie

    Didn't work with our surname-
    Sunny
    Saige
    Sailor


    Too out there??-
    Alba
    Tullulah
    Sailor

    I love Veronica but hate Ron for short. I loved violet but i had a dream where Brad and Angelina came and told me she would be called vile violet in school so didn't use it .

    I love melody it didn't work with my first girls name.

    To be honest I only like the names you've suggested that don't go with your surname

    Violet
    Abigail
    Josephine
    Coco
    Olivia
    Phoebe
    Pearl

    Me too 😬 I don't know why but I love S names but they just don't sound right with our surname... Sunny is my absolute fave, I even asked dd what we should call a girl if we had one and she said Sunshine, which just makes me want to use sunny even more 😂

    I'm a big fan of unisex names and have loved the name "Stevie" for as long as I can remenber. DH was not a fan but we both agreed on a different unisex name for DD anyway.
    The name I had favoured during my last pregnancy and hoped to use (pregnancy ended in a loss) was Abbey. DH even liked it which is rare 😞
    Emma is one of my all time faves as well but I used it on my cat, so no can do now 😂
    Stormy is on my "way too out there" list, but both DH and I think it's cool.
    We had the name Alisha picked out for a girl (didn't find out the sex) but had a boy
    Some others I like but DH would never agree on are
    Everly
    Samantha
    Romy
    Silvie
    Summer (I reeeeeally wanted to use Summer!)
    DH suggested Amber, Ashley and Violet during my pregnancies but they never made the cut.

    Daisy Mairead and Clementine Lily.
    Also love Francesca(Frankie)
    Evangeline (Evie)
    Lyric
    Delilah
    Jemima

    Another name I've recently come to love is Arlo. I'm actually not sure it's a girl's name (I've only seen it used for a boy so far) but I'd happily use it for a girl.

    Default Baby girl names you wish you could have used

    Romy. I really wanted DD3 to be Romy but DH wasn't a fan. It's probably my only regret (although I love the name we chose).

    I really struggle with choosing names. I don't seem to really like any enough (apart from the ones we wound up with and even then I found they grew on me as I got to know my kids).

    I loved Summer but DH didn't like it. I also loved Estelle, but wasn't keen on people calling her Stella and I couldn't think of an alternative nickname.
