We didn't find out sex so had to have names for both, I had said years earlier that I wanted to use my mil maiden name if we had kids. It's a beautiful not too unusual girls name. We had some back up girls names too, but a few weeks before due a friend said she used her back up names for her first dd and regretted it for months so luckily she got another chance to use it. I do love dd name.
For a boys name I went through the name book start to finish and wrote down every name I could live with, then went and crossed some off on reflection. Then dh crossed some off. So we had two names we could use, but in all honesty if dd had been a boy we would have probably been nameless for at least a few hours as we weren't really in love with any boys names.

DS1 was easy - DH had a name he wanted to use for a boy and insisted this was what he was going to call his boy regardless of whether we used it as his formal name! Luckily I fell in love with it and it suited DS1 to a t. His middle name is DH's first name. DS2 was much harder - he was 3 or 4 days old before we named him. We wanted to use DH's granddad's name as a middle name, but couldn't find any name we liked for a first name. After a few days we couldn't imagine calling DS2 anything other than the middle name we chose, so that became his first name and we used my grandpa's name for his middle name. DS2's first name is very common, but it is quite significant to us so I don't mind so much that it common. His middle name is extremely uncommon (would have loved to use it as a first name, but no-one would ever get the spelling or pronunciation right), so I think that evens it out I like all of your names, but there is no reason why you can't wait until she's born and see what suits her best (Sorry, BH won't let me use enter to separate paragraphs??).
