Check out CafeMom's Baby Name Finder to learn about name meanings and origins, see the most popular names, and more!

My husband andI both have hard names. We want "normal" names that everyone can say but we don't want everyone to have it. Our first daughter is Kelsey which we LOVE since it's a cute girls name and not everyone has it. The girls names we will shorten and say "Issy" or "Addy" since we call each other by shorten names and our daughter "Kels"

What name combo do you like?

  • Brayden Andrew or Isabelle Grace

  • Brayden Andrew or Addison Grace

  • Ethan Andrew or Issabelle Grace

  • Ethan Andrew or Addison Grace

    They are all nice names.... I like them all... but so does everyone else!
    If you want something that everyone doesn't have... I think you need to look again. Addison and Isabelle are so overused right now, she would be in a class with at least 4 of each! And Any of the -ayden names are uber popular right now also... Aiden, Caiden, brayden, Hayden, jayden and now I am hearing Zayden, Slayden *yawn*... and Ethan is ALSO very popular.

    They are nice names... but if you don't want everyone to have them, as you said, then I wouldn't go with any of them, they are all very popular right now!

    What about chelsea? Then you'll have a kels and a chels? My sd is chelsea, and kelsey was one of our top choices. Addison/madison are very popular right now, as is isabella. We went with ella. Everyone can say it and spell it, and while its on the top 100, I have yet to know another baby with her name. As pp said, id stay away from the -ayden crowd if you want something that's not too popular. Good luck, the name game is hard!
