But my fiancé wants nothing to do with it.
I’ve even tried pitching Aurora so we could call her Rory but no luck. Also Rory for a girl’s name receives some backlash since it is originally a boy’s name. I’ve looked up similar names but have yet to find anything I like as much as Rory.
Any suggestions at all will be so helpful!

It was a good week for girls’ names.
Sure, there were some great birth announcements for boys, too. The late Christopher Reeve is now a grandfather. Daughter Alexandra Reeve and husband Garren Givens named their son Christopher Russel, after both grandfathers. Actors Tiffani Thiessen and Brady Smith welcomed Holt Fisher, a little brother for Harper Renn.
But it was word names that made headlines last week – some of them were surprising, and most of them were for girls.
Although I’ve done it seven times, I still find baby naming weird and challenging.
I don’t know about you, but my mood, thoughts, likes, and opinions all shift daily- sometimes hourly. Oftentimes I change my my mind three or four times before I finally decide on what kind of sandwich to order and I’m supposed to name for a human baby person for, like, life?
We’ve looked at Zodiac baby names for boys, now here are the traits associated with each sign and related names, this time aimed at girls.
Aries is the sign associated with fire, Mars, and the ram. People born under this sign are courageous, energetic, willful, commanding, leading, competitive, and protective, and often lead when following would be a better course of action. Here are some names related to those attributes.

After a brief hiatus following the Sandy-Mandy-Cindy-Mindy years, nickname names are making a strong comeback. Just recently we’ve seen starbabies with names like Andy (for a girl), Art, Cy, Gus, Josh and Sid on their birth certificates. So with this in mind, we’re embarking here on a 4-part-long search for fresh vintage nickname ideas.
Today we consider girl nicknames that were used frequently enough at one time to make it into the Top 1000 list. Some dropped off because their mother names were no longer current (Effie/Euphemia), some just because they’d come to sound too grandmotherly, and others, like Freddie, that had become strictly male.
