Help me with a name!!!
I will be 36 weeks tomorrow and still haven't completely decided on a name for my LO. I have a bunch of options I am toying with. My preferences: I don't want a "trendy" name (a name that lots of other girls her age will have when she goes to school) or a "unisex" name (one that can be a girl's or a boy's). I want a unique girly name. Please feel free to give me any ideas you might have if you don't like my options.

ETA I don't really like Sydney anymore because I think it is GN name (please feel free to argue with me if you don't agree) and I don't really like Cassandra because it means "entangler of men" or something like that. . .

I love Evelyn! It is beautiful and even though it is old fashioned I pictured someone beautiful and powerful. :goodvibes:

OHH, I think Evelyn Joy is just absolutely adorable!! It's a little old fashioned, and still very unique!

My advice is to keep the list on you, not stress out about it, and when she's born, pick the name that seems the most fitting to her. I had about 10 names listed and when my dd was born I just *knew* what her name was.

I had a friend who when their DD was born had a few names picked out. The first one they called her she cried at but when they tried the second name she calmed down and that became her name.

evelyn is a great name! not a big fan of mackayla because she'll be spelling it out for the rest of her life.

I picked Mackayla, but I was skimming I guess and totally missed Evelyn! I love Evelyn!

I picked Evelyn Joy.

How about Anya Joy (I think Anya means grace so Grace and Joy...two things you experience with childbirth)

Nickname could be Ani (like Ani DeFranco)

I like Gabriella Faith best, and then Karena Joy.

Good luck with your decision.

Re: Help me with a name!!!
Mackayla of any variation is way too popular for me. karena is actually a name we had picked out if DS was going to be a girl... We would have spelt it a little differently though. It is an Italian term of endearment and I am Italian so it is all me! I also hate popular names and DH picked DD#2's name. BLEH! She just started school today and there are 2 other Addisons, Adelin and Adeline...all go by Addie. I hate it!
