Turns out we need help with girls names
So I hate to sound like a broken record, but it has been a few months since we were really working on baby names since I thought we were ok on girls names and we were not going to get to find out boy/girl until s/he arrived. But there have been some updates and I need help again.
So, we ended up needing an additional ultrasound due to some concerns (but according to the ultrasound all is well so we are pretty relieved), and we were finally able to get a decision from the tech- girl.
Now I am re-thinking all if the girls names I have ever seen. And I kinda feel like I don't love any of them and panicking a little about it. We probably have a month or less until she arrives and we don't need to totally decide beforehand, but I would like to have a solid short list of 2 or 3 names that I feel really good about and can make a final decision after her arrival.
Big sister is Georgett3 and we prefer to avoid another G name, or a name that starts with S or ends with -ette. It needs to be relatively long and formal and allow for fun nickname options as we are nickname people. Preferably not top 100.
I love Tallulah, DH vetoed and is never going to reconsider.
I vetoed Alexandra, Anastasia, Aurelia
We both like Louisa and Magnolia. He recently suggested Imogen which kinda impressed me with his creativity and I like the Shakespearean character, but it just doesn't look or sound particularly lovely to me. I worry that Magnolia is becoming too popular, not as a baby name but just as a name for everything else- every time I turn around I notice another apartment complex, furniture line, or clinic being Magnolia something but I just love the way it looks and sounds. Louisa checks all the boxes but I don't want it to be the default.
So, thoughts on our list, suggestions to add to it, any other generally encouraging commentary welcome. Thank you!
