Can't seem to pick a girl name.

I have a hunch I'm having another girl. and I can't decide what I like best. It is important to me to use name (s) from my family, and that if flows with my first daughters name, Mary Elizabeth. Our last name is Adams. Here are the names I have to work with.

Estella (Stella would be ok to shorten)

I was thinking, June Catherine. Because it flows with Mary Elizabeth. And my DH grandmother is June, she would be so honored. And my Mom's name is Catherine.

Or Stella June. Bet I keep thinking Stella is such a "new" name and Mary is a classic name. I don't know.

If I am surprised and it's a boy, then it's Gavin David or Gavin Zachary or Gavin Alexander.

  • I like June Marie, but that doesn't really flow with Mary Elizabeth. I would probably go with June Catherine, Marie and Mary as both first names would be too confusing.

    For a boy, if you want it to flow with your daughter's name, I would go with Gavin Alexander.

  • I would say Catherine June is cuter

  • I like Estella Marie, "Stella" is not that new of a name, and the "E" ages it some.

    Gavin Alexander

    Congrats and good luck mama!

  • Estella/Stella is not a new name. It is very much a classic. Stella June is pretty.

  • I like either June Catherine or Catherine June, and Gavin Alexander sounds the best.

  • I like Catherine Marie Adams

    or Marie Estella Adams

    you can also hyphenate.. maybe: Estella June-Marie Adams

    or you can shorten Catherine to Katie in the middle name: Estella Catie-Marie Adams or something.

  • When I first read the names I thought the one was Estrella- star is Spanish- Which is my very best friends DD's name. Of the names you listed I think Catherine Estella I am just not fond of Estella but it seems you are! You will find a way to make it work!!
