    OK, so I've looked through every internet site there must be and still can't find the perfect name! :hissy: We have our boy's names but are stuck for a girl. We both want a good old-fashioned name although nothing that will make people automatically think '90 year-old lady'. We like names like Emily, Emma, Abigail, Lucy, Katie which we think will suit a little girl, an adult and an older lady. I've looked and looked and although we have a few, none of them is 'the one'. Any ideas for names or good sites?

    I do quite like Florence but my OH hates it! We both quite like Poppy as well as several others. Perhaps it will just hit us when he/she is born?

    I have been thinking the same thing too,I feel like I may be having a girl this time and we like Emily Grace.
    I also like Ruby,Amelia,Sofia Rose, and Gracie.

    I can't seem to make my mind up on girls.
    Boys I always find easier somehow.

    Btw,Katie is a lovely name :)

    Hi! For old-fashioned names, I've always liked:

    Amelie
    Grace
    Ruby
    Olivia
    Rebecca
    Isabella
    Emma
    Lucy
    Evie
    Caitlin
    Sara/h
    Josephine
    Florence
    Angela/Angelique

    Good luck on your name-picking! You're right, sometimes the right names doesn't hit you until you actually see your baby and hold her in your arms :)

    There are so many pretty names in there and a few more to add to my list -thanks. None are 'the one' but it's nice to have more to think about and think of similar names. OH will be thrilled to play 'Baby Names' again when he arrives home from work tonight - what a treat he has in store for him.
