I need your help PLEASE!

Just left my good friend's baby shower and she's still deciding on a baby girl name. I'm also trying to help my sister come up with a unusual name.  Anyone have any cute girl names they wouldn't mind sharing?

  1. I have a Miranda which isn't really unusual, but I love the name! I also like Maileigh (Maylee) which is a name I have never heard, but came up with once. I like combining short names and coming up with a new one. I also love Marina for a girl. Coming up with a different name is tough.....I named both of my kiddos Miranda and Dakota before those names ever got popular and they still really aren't. I wish her the best of luck deciding on a name...:)

  3. I love coming up with baby names! I do it all the time even though I am no where near ready to have one of my own! A fun unique name is Maizey! pronounced (MAZE-ee) I think it has a ton of personality! Good luck to her on picking a name!

  5. I have 3 great-nieces who all have beautiful unusual names, Chynna Raquel (it's pronounced like the country China), Sierra Nicole, and Tristany Kaitlyn. My step granddaughter also has a beautiful unusual name Kayden. If my youngest son had been a girl his name would have been Cheyenne.

  18. You asked, I am a well versed aunt....no kids (fur babies) so every time babies come into my realm I offer.....NO one took me up....But then my sister's girls all have middle names from the Bible (Pala, Petra, Pallas)
    Here are my favorites Ella, Brenna, Ranee, Etty, Rana......Not that unusual but when you have my name and sisters Lalena and Lexa....you tend not too wild.....Hope someone picks one of mine, so I can say someone appreciates them :)

  19. I have a few for you...
    My favorites are Charlotte you can call her Lottie or Charly.
    My friend just named her baby Harper which I think is cute.
    I also like the name Cambrie, Ruby, or Sailor. I love the colors of the baby shower so cute....

  23. If I had a baby girl (which I didn't - 4 boys for this girl), I would have loved to have picked Ailis. It is pronounced Long A-lish. I think it is such a pretty name.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I always love girls with boy names(probably because I grew up with a boy's name) My favorites are Ryeann (Ryan) and Rylan. Cassidy and Shelby are cute too. Another unusual name is my name Michaelyn (Michael-lynn). Hope this helps!!!

  25. As a teacher I have to list a few interesting students' names: Bridie (bride - eee not birdie), Yajaira (pronounced yuh-hi-duh - yes with an r), Souisa (seee-wa), Semisi (see-meee-si), Fatima (fah-tee-mah), Sarai (Sar-ah-eee), America, Justice, Teresita, Zenia, and Nova.

    I do have to include one of the funniest names when you look at it even though it wasn't a student: Shadynasty. It may look like Shady Nasty, but really it's Sha-dynasty. :)

    Personally, I'm partial to Mercedes. Hated it as a kid, but I like it now.

  26. Marisol, Mariana, Clara, Liliana, - those are my favorites and they work in English and Spanish...well at least in my opinion.

    Why did I check here tonight?! I just bought that owl clip art and absolutely MUST have your labels...and your spelling 102 and your information and non-fiction text packet. Your blog name needs to change to "RUN! You'll spend money!" :)

  27. True story! There was a kid at our school named Shithead (pronounced shu-theed). We also had brother/sister named Handsome and Beautiful. Some of these names parents come up with should be illegal! I chose pretty basic names for my girls- Emily Kate and Amy Elizabeth. Good luck to your sister!

    1. And I forgot, I think naming a little girl Charlotte, but calling her Charlie is adorable! I've known two Charlies that were little girls and they were both cutie pies!

  37. I love names that are unusual, but aren't so bizarre that nobody knows how to pronoun the name! It's hard to choose without knowing the last name (You know, there's always that play of syllables with first, middle, & last names) I also love when you can use a family name, especially a mother's surname. Here are some sweet ideas:

    Kylie
    Maddie
    Charly
    Teegan
    Katrina
    Lilly
    Hailey
    McKenna

  41. I have a cousin named Faron. Her parents choose her name by putting their names and her brothers names out is scrabble tiles and combining them until they found a combo they liked. I also had a student named Zondra as another unusual choice.

  43. This year was full of unique names (or at least spellings) for me. One of my personal favorites was Cosette (apparently this comes from Les Miserable). I also had a Maleah. One year I taught a Divine AND Serenity in the same class (along with Justice)!

    My hubby and I were going to name our baby Kylie if it had been a girl (we have a Keagan now). Hope those help!

    Oh, what about Shaughnessey?

  44. My nieces names are Hadley and Kinley, which I love, and are fairly unique! I had a little girl in my class this year whose name is Annika, and her parents called her Ani (Ah-nee) for short. She was a doll!

  50. My daughter's name is Siddalee (Sid-da-lee). I got the name from the movie Divine Secrets of the ya-ya sisterhood. When I heard it I just absolutely fell in love! It's kind of a southern sounding name.

    ReplyDelete
  51. The baby shower looked beautiful! I love how you used the crib! Good luck on choosing a name! Nylla is unique. I've heard a few unique names at my school too like Shaughnessy, Viola, Zoe, and Montana. Vandy, Vada, and Darby are a few unique names that I like!

  54. I had always hoped for twin girls, and I would have named them Amanda Maureen and Amy Melissa, but I ended up with twin boys, whom I named Adam and Alexander. I was never blessed with a daughter, but if I had, I would have named her Skye.

    Blessings to the new baby!

  57. I was the same way with my daughter...I did not want a name that anyone else had but I didn't really want a weird name either...
    My daughter's name is Rileigh-Kay. A few other different names...Emory, Embrie, Lyla, Lydie, Macy, Leigh, AnnaLeigh....Hope she picks a perfect name for her little angel! :)

  64. My niece has a very unusual name. Phair Elizabeth. Both of her parents have brown hair and brown eyes. When my Mother saw the petite little blond haired, blue eyed baby, she exclaimed, "She's so fair!" Hence Phair Elizabeth. It's so unique and really fits her personality. Good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I like Evelyn - old fashioned but pretty. We have a student named Evelyn and everyone calls her Evie (with a short e beginning).

    I have a friend who named her daughter Elin (her husband is very Swedish), and they call her Ellie (again short e).

    Good luck!

  67. Of course I have to say my favorite names are my daughters' names, Ellyse Opal(like Elise but we liked Elly too so we had the option for both) and Avarie Lynn(like the boys name Avery but girled up, we call her Ava for short). Also I have a new niece named Brynn Elizabeth. In my classroom we had a girl named Selene(like sell-en-ay) that was a unique name. I also love Isabella and if we had another daughter that is what I would name her! It was fun to see all the responses, way better than a baby book!
