32 weeks and still no name...
Our last name is Fazelinia, and we didn't find out if it's a girl or boy...
I'm trying to find a name that works in Persian and English/American culture, so they can fit in with both cultures.
For girls the names I like are:
For boys the names I like are:
What kind of personalities/kids do you think would have those kinds of names? Any favorites? Thank you

Hi! Congrats on baby! Here are my thoughts.
Ava, Farrah, Sarah, and Samantha are all good names. Ava is the most trendy, but she's also very elegant and ladylike. Farrah is the most exotic, but she carries a bombshell weight in America because of Farrah Fawcett. Sarah is by far the most classic and timeless. Samantha is one of those new-age classics, to me, a name that doesn't necessarily feel as common as the classic-classics (i.e., Sarah), but might not feel quite as timeless to everyone. I like all of them, but I find Ava and Farrah to be the least desirable with your last name. Sarah is likely my favorite, however, I'd encourage you to see if there are any names that do not end in A that might work toward your Persian-American goal. That's not something I know a lot about, but names like Esther, Jasmine, Shirin, Suri, or Yasmin might work for you. Shiri is a cute nickname for Shirin!
Again, all of your boy names are nice. Aiden (or classic Irish Aidan) is the most trendy, whereas Cameron might be the one with the least style potential today. It's a bit of a been-there-done-that name, but it's still immensely handsome to people. I only single it out in the negative against your other options, not in general. Dean's the standout for me, as he's far more under the radar and a bit old-school hipster chic. Then we've got Sam, the tried-and-true classic boy-next-door name, perhaps only stronger in it's long form, Samuel. Dean and Samuel are definitely my picks, as I'm not sure you want to go Irish with Aidan or Scottish with Cameron if you're trying for Persian-American. Again, not my strong genre, but you might try Cyrus or Darius.

Ava- Not a bad name but it is very trendy. She would probably be amoung several in her class. Think about if that will both you or not.
Farrah- I LOVE Farrah. Its beautiful. Farrah is familiar, easy to pronounce and spell and you don't hear it very often. My favorite on your list.
Sarah- I think Sarah is a good solid name, but it lacks luster to me.
Samantha- I think Samantha is very dated, but it isn't a bad name.
Aiden- I like the sound of Aiden but it is way overused. And I mean way, way overused. It can also be spelled so many ways it could get confusing.
Cameron- This is a nice name. I prefer Camden, though.
Dean- I think it is dated, but it isn't a horrible name.
Sam- Sorry, this name is not my style at all.
I LOVE Farrah and I think Cameron would be a good choice for you. I hope you like the suggestion of Camden.
