Names... might as well add mine

So many of you are putting up threads asking about names. We are not decided yet either. At first we were going to use Alexa (Lexi), but I really do not like popular names, and if you add Alexis and Alexa, you get a very popular name! All my other kids' names are well past the 100 mark and I would perfer this one to be as well, so we marked off Alexa. Next was Chloe, but again it's just WAY too popular. Our current choice is.....

Carly! Cute, simple, easy to spell and say, not weird but not popular, meets all my criteria I am not totally sure this is 'it' though. I have gotten 2 baby names books from the library and looked thru them and didn't come up w/ anything better. So, now for a middle name...

Carly Brooke
Carly Nicole

I am partial to Carly Brooke, the kids and Dh all say Carly Nicole. I think either would be fine. Our last name starts w/ a R and ends in -son so feel free to give an opinion or offer other names you think we might like

I like either.. and it would depend on your last name to "feel" how it rolls.

I LOVE Carly, btw

I love Carly but DH would not let me use it... he associates it with the tv show iCarly. I like Carly Nicole, but I am partial to 2 syll names.

I like it but associate it with the wife from Talladega nights. I hate that movie! I am terrible though

Carly with either middle name is cute!

How about Claire? Not popular, but pretty!

I associate Carly with iCarly too, even though I have never seen the show. Claire is pretty, but I am partial to 2 syllable names so how about Clara? It probably isn't very popular and it sounds good with both Brooke and Nicole.

I like Carly Nicole better, but like both.

I like not too crazy, but not uber popular names too. Its tough naming a baby.

Re: Names... might as well add mine

Claire and Clara are both favs of mine, but my niece is Cara, so I think that's too close. They live closeby and we see them all the time, and they will be 3 years apart, so pretty close in age. I did have Claire on my middle name list, though! I just don't think Carly Claire sounds good If I picked a different FN, I would absolutely consider Claire for a MN. Oh, and I also like the name Anna for some reason, it just sounds pretty, simple and elegant.
