Help with girl names!
 
So DH and I typically have no trouble with girl names. It's always the boy name. This go around we agreed on a boy name, so of course we're having a girl! I've been through the baby name books/sites and can't find anything I love, or at least that DH loves too.

I really like Ellery Elisabeth. It's the girl name I had picked out for my angel baby last fall before we knew he was a boy. Understandably, if you know my history, DH doesn't want to go with the name. I pouted for a bit but I came to see his side of things.

DH really likes Liliana Grace. I like it, but I know we'd call her Lili/Lily (which is fine) but I also know how popular the whole Lily/Lillian/etc name is and I don't really like that. Plus I don't feel that Liliana is the same "style" as our other children, Kyleigh & Tegan. I also have a DSS named Devin.

So I need help! I need name ideas that aren't crazy popular but aren't way off the wall either. Kinda like my Tegan's name. Most of you know our last name from FB, so that limits us on some names too.

Any ideas??

I also like Lilianna... you can always call her Anna instead of Lili...

I'm totally shooting in the dark here. So... take it or leave it. LOL. :giggle:

Some names I like (or have liked before)

Emory? Emmerson? Addison? Jasmine? Georgia? Brooklyn? Philia (pronounced Fy-lee-uh it means love :) ), Leona, Jersey, Andy (I totally know someone who named their DD Andy. Everyone hated it, but it fits her so well!)

As a middle-named Elizabeth, you know where my vote lies. :) Have you ever read this fascinating site? I adore it and I used much of the rules set out there to name my daughter (Elanor Bryn).

That website rocks! I talked with SO today about names and it turns out he hates all the ones I love so I need to reevaluate.

OK, that website has a ton of names!

I'm liking Brynley. Seems like the same "style" as my other kids' names. Bryn for a nickname.
