    Exclamation need help picking a name!

    We are expecting a little girl in about 6 weeks, but have no idea on a name. We already have an Andrew and a Hannah, so the name has to fit in with those. Basically, picture yelling all 3 names from the bottom of the stairs... They have to flow, but can't sound too similar to each other. I'd also really like to try to stay away from a name that's too common, since my other kids already have to use their last initial at school. But I also don't want the name to be to rare or weird... My husband really likes conventional names.

    Here are the name I've got so far. I like them, but I'm not sure I LOVE them. I like the top 2 the best so far.

    Chelsea
    Caroline
    Lucy (my hubby likes this one most, but I'm afraid it's getting too popular)
    Madeline (same concern as Lucy)
    Leah
    Cecilia (but I keep thinking this one sounds to old)
    Miriam

    Any thought or suggestions? What do you think of the names above? New ideas for names?

    Caroline seems like the best choice with your sibset and criteria. I agree Madeline is pretty popular and maybe Lucy too?

    Other ideas:
    Leah: Lila, Lily, Layla
    Miriam- Margot, Maren, Mira
    Cecelia- Amelia ( popular!), Celeste
    Chelsea: Ashlyn, Livia, Emmeline

    I like Andrew, Hannah and Emmeline a lot!

    I think Caroline, Lucy or Leah would form an adorable sibset with your children! As to other suggestions, what about Lilly instead of Lucy and Adelaide (possibly nicknamed Ada) instead of Madeline?

    Other names you might like:
    Alice (quite popular)
    Amelia (same)
    Amalia (beautiful alternative to Amelia, possible nn Lia)
    Audrey
    Camille (altough it might not be convencional enough for you husband, it is a great fresh alternative to Cecilia)
    Charlotte
    Claire
    Eleonor
    Elizabeth (nn Eliza)
    Emma
    Georgia/Georgiana/Georgina
    Grace
    Hazel
    Louisa
    Margaret
    Maude
    Molly
    Paige
    Rose
    Sienna
    Teresa/Tess
    Violet
    Virginia
    Vivian

    Hope this might be of help!

    Since you are concerned about popularity I looked at the numbers.
    Here are the numbers from 2012 (I don't know where you are from, so this is from the whole country (USA)):
    Leah #33 (too popular for my taste)
    Lucy #66 (without adding in girls named Lucille, Lucinda etc.)
    Caroline#79
    Madeline #96 (and falling)
    Cecilia #216 (and rising)
    Chelsea #233
    Miriam #314 (and steadily staying there)

    From your list I like:
    Madeline
    Cecilia
    Chelsea
    Miriam

    Lucy, Leah (which I know a ton of my age and my sister's age), and Lily (#16) are too popular if you care about popularity.
    Charlotte is #19 and rising.
    I would check the popularity both in the country and in your area. I would cross off anything in the top 100 or anything rising really fast. It depends on how much you care about popularity. If it is a big deal to you, you really should look at the numbers, and not just guess at what might be popular or not.
    Other suggestions made by other people are quite popular Emma is #2 in the country, Elizabeth is #10 Amelia is #23, etc.
    I second:
    Rose
    Alice #127 (rising but not too fast)
    Paige # 105 ( and mostly descending)
    Theresa

    I also recommend:
    Rachel
    Rebecca
    Ruth
    Mary
    Rosemary
    Veronica
    April
    Melanie

    Good Luck!
