    Hi everyone,

    I am not sure if I am postin in the right place but I need some help deciding on our baby girl's name.

    I am due our baby girl on 25th June and we still haven't decided on a name yet. I have to admit I am starting to stress about it a bit as with our son we had his name set about 2 months before delivery! Our son's name is Samuel and we obviously want something to go with him.

    I have to admit I have found it hard settling on the right name for her. I liked the names Amber, Jasmine and Abigail, but they have been taken by friends and family recently. (I discussed these names with the mums when pregnant and they just took them first! lol!)

    My OH and I like Annabelle and Olivia but I am still not sure if either is the one. Which one do you prefer? I also like Harmony, Hope and Melody but my partner doesn't like any of these :(

    Middle names will be Cheryle after my mum and Katie (Kathryn) after her auntie.

    Any suggestions?? I would love to find her name soon!!

    I like Annabelle, but then I am biased as I have one myself!

    Seriously though, don't stress about it - just have a few ideas of the names you like (which you have) and wait until you meet her to decide - one will instantly feel right - although be prepared for that to surprise you!

    :hugs:

    I really like Annabelle! I'm also having problems deciding on names, so DH and I have written out a short list of names we like and will decide after baby is born next Monday (YIKES!!). I'm a little worried about not having a definite name yet, but I'm just having such a tough time deciding on the perfect name this time around. But seriously, out of all the names you've mentioned I really like Annabelle.

    I love Anabelle! It's the middle name we had picked out if we had a girl.

    Some more suggestions that Jasmine and Amber reminded me of:
    Jade
    Alexia or Alexis
    Briony
    Heather
    Alanna
    Brookelyn

    I love Annabelle, and I love "Belle" or "Bella" for a nickname for it. As for the names people took, don't hesitate to use them, seriously!! I mean, if the kids won't be in school together everyday in the same class, who cares?! I totally wouldn't mind if someone used my girl's name, not the slightest (some do mind, but so what, you found it first!).

    Here's some I like, hope they help...

    Maleah (or Malia)
    Elise (or Alise, Alyse, Elyse...)
    Cara
    Caralee, Caralie, Caralyn
    Olivia (wayyyyy popular here in the US tho)
    Leah
    Annalise ("annaleese") or Analise
    Camryn
    Kayla (lots of different spellings too)
    Aleese
    Audrianna, "Audri" for short is cute
    Adriana, "Adri" or Ana for short
