They’re excited to expecting another girl, but agreeing on a name? That’s another story! They compromised on Luella for their first daughter. Let’s help them find another name they can both love.
I’m hoping you can help my husband and I get on the same page. When it comes to baby names we are two ships passing in the night!
We have always had a boy name in mind – Harvey – but of course we are having our second girl.
Our first daughter is named Luella. I can’t tell you how long it took to get that name and I am anxious for us to fast track getting this new little lady named.
Help, please … or this baby may be named Harvey-the-girl!

Head to a kindergarten classroom today, and you’re likely to hear girl names like Sophia and Emma, Isla and Mila, Harper and Quinn. It’s a mix of long-time favorites and newer discoveries. Some are unisex and modern. Others feel surprisingly traditional.
But how about the kindergarten class of 2026? Or maybe 2031? Which rising girl names seem likely to soar – or quietly climb – in the next five to ten years?
We can get some insight by looking at the names that have gained in use most dramatically.
Most of these names won’t make that list, though. Instead, a mix of on-trend sound and just enough pop culture presence might transform these nine girl names into popular choices to fill classrooms of the not-so-distant future.

But that’s not all. Here are ten more wonderful names for girls that start with this most cheery, open and optimistic of vowels:

Earlier this week, Mike Myers and wife Kelly Tisdale welcomed a new daughter, a sister for Spike Alan and Sunday Molly. Their older kids’ names are bold, unconventional choices, but they went a different direction for their newest arrival: Paulina.
It might be a departure for the Myers family, but it’s in step with many of the names that we love for girls today. Sophia is popular the world over. Olivia and Isabella are Top Ten favorites in the US, and names like Arabella, Ariana, and Valentina are stylish, too.
Could Paulina be part of the next wave of long, lovely, romantic names for girls? And if so, what are some of the other up-and-coming names that could also catch on?
With fewer than ten weeks left in 2014, let’s take a look back at the best of the high profile birth announcements so far.
But there have been some amazing celebrity baby names, stylish choices rich with meaning, unusual names that feel like they’d be wearable in Hollywood or anyone’s hometown.
I couldn’t keep the list to just nine total, so here are my nine favorite celebrity baby names for girls, and nine more for boys – subject, of course, to revision, any time between now and December 31st!
