We have made it to the "less than 100 days left in pregnancy name cram phase" and we cant come up with girls names that we can agree on. We already named 3. We have come up with one but cant find a middle name that we like. He wants to name it Scarlett Begonias (after a song or something) and I told him no I dont like that for a middle name.

I like Harmony and Miranda.

He likes Adalaide.

Our girls are Katrina often called Katie and Kat, Abigail called Abi and Johanna goes by Anna or JoJo. I like Adalaide but the thought of having Ali Abi and Adi makes me crazy. I need some ideas ladies he keeps coming up with names like Ophelia and Penelope.


ETA: Our last name is 6 letters, uncommon, and starts with the letter K.

we did the same, checked the nicknames and the initials together

We write the name on the mirror. Full name, just first and last, initials, any nicknames that could become, and what each name means. That way we can look at it for a few days. At one point we had 4 names on the mirror with Anna and one day John and I were getting ready for bed and he was staring at the mirror and said "I dont like this one anymore. I dont want to yell this one at the park."

I always loved Valerie but for some reason it never seemed like a name for a baby

I like that name too but I agree it would be hard to cuddle a valerie

If we have a girl in June she will be either Nora or Audrey.  And with the boys' names my dh is throwing at me, let's just pray it is a girl...

Not sure that really helps you any, but I do like almost all of the names already suggested.  Is your last name short or long?  Common or not?  I always think that can sort of makes a difference.

I love the name Nora. Its really pretty.

I love the following: Scarlett, Elizabeth, Savannah, Caroline, Kymberlee (yes a funky spelling of it).

 I never knewthat Anna was really a Johanna... which I guess makes sense with DH being John.

that is important... and yelling them together..... John, Garrett, CJ, Alex. If we are someplace super public I yell out last name, which sounds nothing like the spelling...and they all come running. Inc. Carly.
