Re: Help with baby name, please!!!

My absolute favorite baby name site is http://www.behindthename.com. You can even search the popularity rankings/whether a name is trending more or less popular recently, read people's impressions of names and comments on them, etc.

It came down to Kendall or Hailey. SIL's dog is Kailey, so we went for Kendall instead. Now that she is 21 months old, she definitely isn't a Hailey anyway. But since she has red hair, I wish we had done Penelope, which was on my list, but DH didn't like.
Just wondering, why do you wish you'd named your red head Penelope. My middle daughter has VERY red hair and when she is in the sun her hair is the color of a new penny, a true copper head, so to speak. Penelope had been on our list for her, and one day I realized "good thing we didn't name her Penny with that copper colored hair." When pregnant with my 3rd girl, we waited for her to be born and confirm she was a brunette before naming her Penelope.

Anyway, just curious your logic if you feel like sharing!

I wish I had because we'd call her Penny for her bright red hair. Her hair is the color of a new penny in the sun.

I love how the same reasoning goes both ways I feel this is a good time to mention that my red is named Daphne. People kept saying "oh like in scooby do" then I realized the red head in scooby do is named Daphne! So a little funny coincidence there too.

I had a huge list for my kids and named the first two names we had never thought of while pg just because when they were born, they just screamed their names. Briana and Elijah. Stella is the only one who got the very first name I thought of while pg, even though I thought she was a boy for most of the pregnancy. Wish I could enjoy screaming "Stella" everyday, instead of crying it.......
But other names I love and will never get to use are;

Kenna
Koralynn or Korah
Azalea
Elise
Evelyn
Aubra or Aubree
Quinn
I love the name iris, that's my niece's name
Loving a lot of the suggestions too!

Good luck and god bless your little one!
