    Please share your opinions on our top contenders!

    I am due in January with, likely, my 3rd girl (couldn't tell for sure on the sonogram). I have a 16 year old named Jessica and a 2 year old named Cecilia. We are Catholic and would prefer a saints name. Please tell me what you think of our top picks.

    Serafina - We love this name, it is a Saint name and we think it's very pretty. Cons are that we don't love any of the obvious nicknames and wonder if it might get really popular. (Hispanic last name, so prefer this spelling)

    Apollonia - My husband and I REALLY love this one, but no one else seems to. We know we can name her what we want but don't want everyone to think her name is ugly. Apollonia is the patron Saint of teeth/dentists, which is cool, and we love the nicknames Polly and Lola. But is it too out there? Sis in law can't get past purple rain, but husband and I and most of our friends have never even seen it.

    Also like Gemma, Isadora, Contessa(not really a name?), etc.

    Thanks for your insights and suggestions, nameberries!

    Apollinia is hands down awesome! Isadora is a favorite of mine, and Serafina is nice too.
    Go with what you want as its really no one else's choice but yours. We got a lot of initial flack for our sons name choice. They got over it!

    Serafina - personally I prefer Seraphina, but Serafina is equally pretty.
    Apollonia - Not a fan, but I do see the appeal.
    Gemma - sweet and simple.
    Isadora - beautiful!
    Contessa - dislike, I can only see the word 'contest' there. I prefer Tessa.
