Unique baby names...

My husband and I will soon find out what we are having so we have been searching for unique baby names. I have a gut feeling that we are having a girl, so right now I have been focused on girl names lol. Anyway, my mother in-law is driving me crazy and turns her nose at every name we mention, however the names she likes for a girl are terrible. My husband's name is Shawn, she thinks we should name our baby Shawndra or Shawna if we have a girl....Ummm, NO!!!!!!!! I really like the name Makaylee Rae. It's different and I like Kaylee for short (But of course she doesn't like it lol). Any suggestions on some different baby names that arent used often? :)

  • First, quit telling her the names you are thinking of. Do you have a baby name book? Also you can do a google search of some unique names. Sorry, I don't have any off the top of my head. But QUIT TELLING HER NAMES YOU'RE CONSIDERING!!! =)

  • I like Makaylee......but would personally spell it MaKaylie (just not a fan of "lee" ).
    My fav girl name was Madigan (NN Madi) but my DH vetoed it.
    My DD's MN is Devi (PN like Levi, but with a D).....I've never meet anyone else with that name.
    But I think the most important thing is that you and DH find a name that you love and quite sharing with MIL. Just tell them that you're keeping it a secret until the baby is born.

  • I agree, stop telling her what your choices are. The decision should be between you and your DH and it's best to refrain from telling others if you really like a name. It doesn't matter if no one else likes it, it matters if YOU and DH like it! Good luck mama!

  • Its your baby, quit sharing your possible names with your MIL as it isn't her business.

  • Luz-Ella Sarai

    Luz is spanish for light and you can call her lucy for short, or ella, elly, lulu, sarai, sara.
    *sarai is from the bible. Sarah and abraham had a baby at 90 years old, when sarahgave birth to Issac god told sarah to drop the "h"from her name and replace it with an "i"

    If i ever hav a girl this will be her name

    if not for a boy i would pick Justus Emillio
