    Finally got hubby's opinions

    I finally got my husband to weigh in on names for our girl. We narrowed down our short list to 3 names. I've posted 2 before, but here are our (final?) Top 3. Any and all opinions welcome.

    Emerald Christine Wood "Emmy"
    Kerrigan Sage Wood
    Riddley Iris Wood "Riddles"

    I'm ok with not having a nickname for Kerrigan, but if you can think of something cute that's not "Kerri" let me know!

    What a great little list!
    My husband loves the name Ridley for a girl, but it's too masculine for me.
    My favorite from your list is Kerrigan Sage. Great name, and Sage works great as a middle here. Kerrigan is cute as a young girl and professional and mature later in life. Love this option. I can't think of any nn other than Kerri off the top of my head, but that's ok... One may pop up that your not expecting!

    Emerald Christine - I like this one best (maybe because of Emmy? Or maybe it's just because I don't like unisex names?). I am usually not a fan of Emerald (it doesn't seem very namey to me), but Emerald Christine works, and Emmy Wood is cute.
    Kerrigan Sage - sounds very androgynous to me, which could be a good or bad thing, depending on what you're wanting. If not Kerri, how do you feel about Kerra? Like Cara (CARE-ah)? I think you could pull Iggy, Annie, and Kiki out of it, as a stretch, but I like Kerra the best, honestly.
    Riddley Iris - LOVE the mn Iris, but Ridley reminds me of Ridley Scott (the movie producer?), and Ripley's Believe it or Not, and it just comes across as really masculine to me. I can't see it on a girl at all, sorry. I do like the idea of Hadley Iris, but I'm not sure how much it'd appeal to you?

    Good luck!

    I have a tendency to like typical male names as female names, but I realize that a lot of people dont. I'm ok with that. I dont really like girly names at all.

    Emerald Christine is my favorite
    Kerrigan Sage is hubby's favorite, although I love it too
    Riddley Iris was our #1 girl name when I was pregnant with my first, which turned out to be a boy (Tucker Rene)

    Emmy is such a cute nickname, although pretty popular, but I would be fine with it if she has a non-typical first name for it. Emerald is really the only first name I like for Emmy.

    I didnt even think of Iggy for Kerrigan, but I like it! I'll have to remember that one if we choose to use this name.

    I'm really not sure where it came from, but for some reason, I really like the nickname Riddles for a little girl, as silly as it is. And Riddley is the only name I've seen that would work and (to me) is unisex.
