Uncommon name for a special girl:)

Ok so now that we know that we are having a girl, DH and I have been trying to think of names, not much luck:( I want to name her ASAP so when im talking to her(belly) or about her I can call her by name, I hate waiting untill the last minute to deside. Well we have made a list of a few names that we think are ok, but nothing is really jumping out at me:( DH also wants her to have my middle name (Marie) which I hate because its so common. We are looking for somethink uncommon and unique. But not too hard to say.
A few names we have thought of are Keira and Peyton. I also like Samantha and Aubrey, but they just seem to common now days. DH also likes Cassandra, its ok I guess if I call her Cassie.
If anyone has any good uncommon names for me PLEASE post them:) Im going to start a list at home for DH to look at so we can name her soon. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated:)
Thanks,
*Tabitha*

My daughter is called Janaya and i get so many comments on that because its so different. And her middle name is also Marie after mine.
I also like Leah. I'm sure sure what i'm having and haven't even really thought of alot of names yet.I like Michala for a girl and Lincoln for a boy.

No matter what you name the little one, someone else will share the name somewhere, too! I don't look at popular name lists. I know "Caiden" has become very popular but it is a name that DH and I have had picked out for FIVE years and has very significant, special meaning to us. So I say screw the name lists and we're naming our boy (if we have a boy) what we want!

So I encourage you to find a name that just speaks to you and means something to you.

Keira is very beautiful! I also LOVE Aubrey. I also like:

Laurel
Sage


Give yourselves time! This is your last baby and only girl. *HUGS-n-KISSES*

I love the name Leah and Fiona. Hubby and I had two girl names picked out (but now he is rethinking them again!) lol. They are Kara and Moriah. I like to spell Kara with a K because it's different. I like to watch threads like this so I can get more ideas! lol. Hubby likes a name one minute, then changes it the next. We have no clue on boys names yet.....Gotta love him though! ;)

Hmmm...I had this same problem when I found out I had a girl.....I ended up naming her Adriana...I love it..it fits her perfectly.  DH liked names that were after places...his 3 faves were:

Madison
Brooklynn
London
I also really like Kaelynn and Michaela

My sons name is Caiden and like Joy...we had our boys name picked out before we even got engaged! (which was 6 years ago) So when I was pregnant I noticed how popular it got but I was like ahh whatever, we had it picked out SO long ago and we loved it! And were super picky with names! So I agree-whatever you love, go for it! You can make any name unique too with different spellings and pronunciation :)
I love the following girls names:

Avren
Noelle
Kierra
Caylee

Good Luck!!

376739_tn?1317669990
I thought of some more-

Ariyana
Aviana

These are two little girls I know via the "blog world" because their mommies blog about them. Hayden is a cool name! Reminds me of that actress from Heroes (I like her). It's not a very popular girl name at all.

I also like the Tajha name someone else put on the list! That sounds SO beautiful!!!

Sorry if there are repeats-I didn't have time to read thru the list, but I love my dd's name, and it is sort of uncommon. (Jordana) I get compliments on her name all the time! Also another name I kinda like for a girl is Tegan (pronounced TEE-GAN), I think it cute and you don't hear it often....

Tabby -

Some of your suggestions were on my list of ideas, so I'll toss mine out there too:
(you said possibly Cassandra, so what about Cassidy instead? just a thought)

Ainsley*
Annabelle*
Addison*
Avery
Delaney*
Georgia
Genevieve
Hailey
Laurel
Marley
Reagan
Savannah*
Shelby*
Whitley*
Morgan
Madison
Kennedy*
Phoebe
Harper*
Hadley*
Sheridan*
Cassidy
Campbell
Everly*
Lana
Cicely* (like Sicily)
Kendall*
Chaney*

I put a star next to my personal faves ;-)  I think we are going to name our daughter Kendall.  It's about the only thing my partner likes that i can stand (i hated his suggestions lol)

What's your last name (if you don't mind sharing)?  That can make a difference in how it sounds too, how it rolls off your tongue.  It made a big difference in what name combinations worked for us.  We loved Sawyer for a boy (but last name is Brown, lol)...  Personally, I pay more attention to First/Last combination than to First/Middle.  First/Last is how they will be known.  

I try to picture my little jelly bean as a high-powered lawyer or Fox News Anchor or something and think about what she will say and the impact it will have when she sticks her hand out in introduction and confidently says her name.  lol!

I wanted to go a little more uncommon the second time around, because my oldest, Madelyn, is not uncommon at ALL ( I go into stores all the time and hear people calling for their 'Maddie's"), and people hear her called Maddy and assume her name is Madison, which is also very popular.

SO, I heard Jordana on a tv show, and wasn't sure if I liked it, because I had never heard it before-but the name grew on me so much! I love it, and I cannot imagine dd with another name, it is so her (originally, she was going to be Makenna, which is also growing in popularity).

Also, DD's middle names are Rylyn and Sage. My oldest's middle name's are Ava and Rose(my girls have 2 middle names)(also very popular 4 years ago, when she was named)

I was also going to suggest Cassidy, but I can see that has already been suggested. A friend named her dd that. I also like Delany, I think that is cute. (Can you tell I love irish names??)

DH and I had the name Hayden Blake picked out if we were to have a boy, we had that picked out in like 2000, when we were dating. Now all the 'ayden'/aiden' names top the lists for boys AND girls(Caiden, Aiden, Jayden, Hayden, Brayden, etc)....what a difference 9 years makes! Whoever said in this post that any uncommon name now, will become popular, is absolutely right. My aunt named her boys Ethan and Logan 18 and 13 years ago, and we in the family had not really heard them much-she felt she had given them unique names. Now all these years later, they also top the lists' for boys names. And that was 18 YEARS ago...time and names preferences can over time....I am waiting for Jordana to jump onto the top 100 girls name list at some point within the next few years....

But classic names, are always beautiful too, and you can never go wrong. I love names like Olivia, Elizabeth (my middle name), and Sophie.

I do hope you are able to find a beautiful name that you love and fits your special little girl to a T. That is how I feel about the names I chose for my girls. Best wishes.

We had considered Kendall for our oldest-but my dh is from the south, so his family pronounces it 'Kindill"-It drove me nuts, so I figured it would never work if they could not pronounce it properly!! But I still love the name :)
Blank
690039_tn?1277476022
Yeah---there's just a difference between a southern short e sound and a northern one, lol.  To a northerner it sounds like a short i.  It doesn't bother me since we are both originally from Alabama (we grew up an hour apart and didn't know it!).

I can't even fully commit to Kendall though... I don't know what I want to do, I'm so darned indecisive!

I really like Cicely too, it's so pretty like Sydney but much more rare.

Well, my name is Samantha. But I was born in 1990, and I haven't seen too many little girls with that name nowadays.

Yes, I am from way up north (NH) and DH grew up and most of his family is from Baton Rouge LA (deep south). DH still has a hard time with words like 'pen' or 'den'-it sounds as if he is saying 'pin' or 'din'...no offense! I just wanted a name that everyone one could say properly! :)

LOL-Sydney was another girls name we had picked out like 10 years ago when we were dating! I still like that name too :)

Keira Grace is my niece and when they have another child it will be Payton. We are naming our daughter Zephyr and still trying to pick the middle name we are thinking about Phoenix, Channing, Stormy, Isla, Aubrey, Avery, Seang(sang), or even Junior because how often do you ever hear of a girl being a junior we have never.

well hope you have fun picking we are.
Blank
724112_tn?1292923007
Congrats on your little girl!!

(And congrats on finally liking the name "Tabitha"--it's taken me about 20 years to like having it as well. :-)

Kiera is a beautiful name, and not heard too much this side of the Atlantic.

If I end up pregnant with a little girl (and I hope I do), we're calling her either Shiloh, Shalom, or Medora.

Medora comes from Lord Byron's poem "The Corsair".

One of the best suggestions I've heard about finding an unusual name was to look through your favorite novels/poems, and browse the character names.

19th Century novelists & poets are especially great for interesting & unique names.

Before we narrowed it down, here were some others from our list:

Arabella
Blair
Briony
Cecile
Cecily
Christabel
Clarice
Cordelia
Estella
Gatsby
Honoria
Larissa
Leighton
Octavia
Ophelia
Magdelena
Marlowe
Maia
Natalia
Pomona
Portia
Regan
Serena
Sonora
Tatiana
Tourvell
Wilhemina
Viola
Zelda
