Name Dilemma! Advice please!

Ok, I thought we had our name settled on... Eve. Only to find out that Eve and every variation thereof is on the top ten list for girls. I checked the hospital I will give birth at and there's been 10 girls with that name and even more with the name variations born in the past 9 months.

DH loves Ava but that's more popular than Eve. I just don't want her to be known by her first name plus last initial. I'm having "Jennifer" flashbacks to when I was in school and there were Jennifers everywhere!

Ok, here's our new list. Suggestions welcome please! We are leaning toward old classic names, biblical names, and German heritage names. No "L" names please.

Clara - Family name
Ada - Dh's favorite from this list - he's still voting for Ava
Eleanora - Family name
Nathalie - Christmas themed name

DH has shot down Hannah, Amalie, Delia, Trinity, and Esme (pronounced Ezmay).

Seriously, I have no idea what to name this child!

Re: Name Dilemma! Advice please!

From your list I like Ada and Nathalie If you want another holiday themed idea, maybe go with Holly instead of Hannah, b/c Hannah is very popular as well.
My DD2's name is Holly, only reason I sugg. LOL But she was born in Oct. not during xmas-time...I just liked the name The only Holly I've met is the pediatrician's daughter...otherwise I haven't met another Holly since mine was born in oct '07

I am having this same thought...I love Zoe but it is in the top 100 and I don't like that. Nadia isn't in the top 100, I think its 198 or something like that so not very common. Zoe is 58!

Out of your list I like Clara and Eleanora the best. Ada is pretty also though!
