girl names...

Do you have any you like a lot? We are struggling. My mother in law and I exchanged 100 or so that Nick discarded. My, he's a tough old bird. Don't be offended if we don't use it. Apparently, it has to be perfect. ;) But I would REALLY love some ideas.

I wish I could help but we used the only two names we agreed we like with Charlotte. :) Good luck finding the perfect name. Its tough to do.

Oh, I am soooooooooooooooo ready to help!! :-) Perhaps a bit too ready. I could give you a ginormous list of names I love, but I don't want to overwhelm. Do you have any sort of criteria, like how long/short or what middle name you want to use? Or were there some that Nick seemed like he could be convinced on with a little change?

I like the less "traditional" names for girls like Miley, Addison, Oakley, Brielle, Ashlyn...my husband is picky about names too. Good Luck!!!

Beth. I don't know why, I just like it. :)

Nick prefers no Bible names, nothing exotic, and nothing too old, to answer Lacey's question. But traditional is good...I don't like androgynous names or funky spellings. I'd love your ideas, woman.

Good luck. Picking names is more stress than it should be, really.

'Kay, so I went to one of my favorite baby name sites (yeah, I've got like eight bookmarked, lol) and plugged in the criteria you gave me. Here's the link:

Colette/Cosette
Danielle/Daniella

Eva/Ava
Grace

I'm a bottomless pit, my friend. The more direction you give me, the more names I'll come up with. :-)
