Oh boy, it's a GIRL!!!!
Many of you helped me generate ideas a month or so ago when I was preparing to name a boy, and it turns out I don't need them! I recently found out that we are having a little girl, and I'm wildly excited. Naming boys is a chore, but naming girls is FUN! So can you all help me come up with some ideas? My children are Ivy, Arthur and Peter, and our last name is quite common, especially around here, so I'm pretty careful about staying away from very common names.
We like planty names, obviously. We like variations on Rose, but we haven't settled on WHICH variation we like best. My daughter named our last pregnancy Roselay before he turned out to be male, but we wouldn't ever actually use that. We both really like Violet as well, but it's on a sinister trajectory in popularity, especially in our state. I like the name Eliza, but it's WAY too common around here, and my husband doesn't love it. Runners up when I was pregnant with Ivy are Lydia and Matilda. We like to make a list, vet it fully, and then name the baby when we meet it.
We like names that are real, established and accepted without a whiff of gender ambiguity. I look forward to reading your suggestions.
