What makes a name "the one" for you?
I guess I'm still waiting for a name to jump out at me with flashing lights as the one I should name my little girl but I can't seem to settle on anything. So I wanted to know from you guys what made you know it was "the one"

For me, I know a name is "the one" when I feel like having a baby just to have an excuse to use it. Haha, that may sound a little extreme, what I mean is you can't imagine NOT being able to use it. There are some names that are like 'oh that's nice' but I could live without, and then there are those that I already call my future kids by in my head.Felicity ~ Calista ~ Claudia ~ Beatrice "Betty" ~ Carlotta ~ Millie ~ Cora ~ Audrey ~ Violet

I'm with the pp--bouncing about in my head is this adorable, blond-haired, blue-eyed little wonder who wears dresses and cardigans and dances through my parents' house and loves to fingerpaint and sing and loves when mommy reads her stories and always says, "Mommy, tell me a story of when you were a little girl!" and starts to learn an instrument when she's five and I call her my sweet little sparrow whose name is Isabelle. It's not really a question of if, but when. I cannot for the life of me imagine my future without Isabelle in it. I love Isabelle like I love no other name, and I think I'd be gutted to never get to use it. My style is defined by Isabelle. Honestly, my personality is defined by Isabelle, and maybe that's why I like it so much--familiar, understated, feminine, with religious and literary undertones, approachable, sweet, friendly, and yet a little bit shy, too. I could care less about popularity. And hopefully, in five years, when everyone is starting to say, "Oh, look how dated and tired Isabelle is," I'll still adore it then, too.
Honestly, Isabelle has been my top choice for over three years now. My combo hasn't really even changed in two or so years. While I really love the other names on my list (and can see Isabelle's little sisters having some of those names), I can't really imagine using anything before I use Isabelle itself. And I'm not even pregnant, not adopting, and I won't be at least until I've been in a solid job that pays more than minimum wage and I'm out from under my parents' roof--and preferrably not until I'm married, although I might adopt while I'm single yet--so that leaves being a mom to probably at least 2 years off, if not closer to 5 or even 10, and yet, I don't refer to her as "my future daughter"--I refer to her as Isabelle, and Bella. And that's really how I know, hahaha.Ashley
