    need help to pick her name

    This is my first pregnancy, expecting a baby girl, and I'm finding it so hard to get the perfect name. We are looking for a name that either doesn't need a nickname or has a cute girlie one. There are two boys already in the family so we want something feminine, nothing unisex, so there is no question as to her gender. She is due in May so we've been trying to think of Spring names that are light and unique; however we also like nature names, colour names, animal and bird names, jewel names, French names, elegant names etc. We live in a bilingual (Eng/French) city so we would like to have her name be easily pronounceable between both languages.

    My fiancé and I have thought of these but are not sold on any particular one:

    Charlotte (he really likes this but is it too popular? I don't like the nicknames Char or Lottie, and definitely not Charlie)
    Coral (I love the colour and we both like the sea reference, but is it ok for a name?)
    Brielle (does this sound too.. pop singer-ish?)
    Breanna (we both like the nickname Bre, but wondering if the ending "anna" is overused... not liking Breanne as much)
    Avani (Ay-vah-nee, I like the nickname Ava but is it too plain?)

    Any comments about these names (good or bad) or any other name suggestions are very welcome!!

    As a Brianne myself... I am biased towards my name. I love that my name is unique and have received lots of compliments.My other favorite is Charlotte.

    I know a Coral, so I like that name, and I don't think it's too out there (but then again, I see it as a name now more than a word).
    I like Brielle because it's different but not weird.
    I know SO many Breanna, Brianne's etc etc how ever you want to spell it...but it is a pretty name.
    I really like Avani.

    If you like French names and like Coral but are unsure about using it as a name, what about Coralie? It's French and means coral. It also gives off a springtime vibe to me. As far as your other names, I love Charlotte and Avani is very pretty, I've actually never heard that one before!

    Congrats on your pregnancy!

    Charlotte - a ladylike and elegant classic. It's popular but I don't think you should worry about it if you love it. It's not on the same level as Sophia or Isabella.

    Coral - Ok but I prefer Coraline and Coralie and I think these two names would work better in an Anglo-French community.

    Brielle - Very trendy along with sisters Briella, Bella and Ella. One of the highest rising names which is always a red flag!

    Breanna - This is more of a modern invention name for me and is usually spelled Brianna.

    Avani - I've heard of Imani and Amani but not this name. It does sound similar to a brand name (eg. Armani). Not a fan.
