I second M-Wires; I'd love to see a list of girl names for people who have no problem picking boy names.

Thanks everyone! Of all these suggestions, he doesn't mind Abigail and Victoria. But Caroline is still the clear front runner!

Oh yes, name crushes...

I've always loved Marisol, but considering a daughter would have absolutely no Hispanic heritage, it feels wrong to use it. Charis is another name crush. I love the sound and spelling and meaning but I worry about pronunciation issues. I've always secretly liked the name November for a girl, but my husband won't even consider it. I would love to use Victor for a boy, but it would be far too alliterative with our last name.

In Response to Need your help!

I also know a little Anjali, who is Indian. Beautiful name!

Dot is the cutest nickname! I think Atlas would be really cool in the middle name spot, especially since you like to travel! I actually kind of like Truman too, although one of the first thing that comes to mind for me is that Jim Carrey movie, The Truman Show, haha.

I like Mina best as well. The "mean" part of the name would never occur to me! Ayla is a close second. I think all of the names on your short list are lovely!

8

Wow, 5! This is totally giving me the courage I need to actually use it. :)

Thanks, I'll have to check out that book! I actually first came across the name in a book: "World Without End" by Ken Follett (although he actually spelled it like Caris!)  Another interesting name from the story was Gwenda. 

10

Thanks!

I really like Shepherd from your list... So cool. 

11

Very cool!

12

Now I'm curious! What is your son's name?

13

Thanks, Miriam! I do feel best about the Charis spelling. :)

14

Wow, you're right... I guess I never realized how many Ch names were pronounced with a hard C. It wouldn't be hard to explain the pronunciation of Charis at all. :)

15

You are very right about Forest! Maybe I should put some more thought into the possibility of using it...

Too bad we aren't pet people, haha... If the kids want a pet, it's fish or nothing in this house! :)

16

Yep, this! I like traditional spellings so much that I would rather have pronunciation confusion than go with a non traditional spelling. Although this does remind me of a male Caris that I know of! Caris Levert plays basketball for the University of Michigan (Go Blue!). 

17

Great point about charisma! Do you know if Caris is a variation of Charis, or a different name like Carys is?

I'm very drawn to the meaning of Charis, and I tend to like traditional spellings, so I would probably stick with it no matter what. 

18

Thank you! I plan on at least attempting to use a few of these in some middle name spots. :) we'll see!

19

I actually find Stanley and Leroy quite charming! :)

oooh, Penelope! I would add that one to my list as well! 

20

Thank you! What middle name would you put with Charis, out of curiosity? :)
