    It's a girl! List opinions?

    So, today, my husband and I decided to call the doctor and ask about the gender of our baby due July 9th - the suspense was killing us. And it turns out it's a girl! I'm absolutely thrilled, and kind of relieved because I've only looked at girl names. So, now I really need to decide which names I like and which I don't.

    I know my list probably hasn't changed much and I post it often, but I really, really appreciate feedback. I would also really like if you would suggest me new names! Thank you!

    Audrey-one of my favorites.
    Stella-cute but not my style
    Stephanie-seems very 70s or 80s
    Isis-too out there for me. I prefer Isla or Ivy
    Francesca-pretty but too long and flowery for me. I prefer Frances
    Esme-pretty but reminds me of Twilight too much
    Charis-I prefer Carys, not sure how you pronounce it though. Pretty but might get mispelt and mispronounced
    Gianna-pretty but a bit long to me. What about Gia or nn Gia?
    Petra-pretty but I wouldn't be brave enough to use it
    Celeste-nms at all
    Jasmine-my sil name. I love it. It is pretty and underused.
    Gwen. I love this name too.
    Carmen. I went to school with a Carmen and she was a sweet, beautiful person so I love this name.
    Lola-cute and sort of trendy. There is some kind of negative history with this name that the older generation will know, the younger generation not so much. You might want to research and see if that bothers you or not.
    Scarlett-cute and becoming more popular (I know two under five), but not too popular. I dislike the nn Scar though!
    Nadia-very pretty and uncommon
    Nadine-my great aunt's name so seems very old lady to me
    Marina-cute. I knew an awesome Marina once, she's about early 30s now.
    Mariah-reminds me way too much f Mariah Carey
    Rhiannon-kind of cool, but kind of long.
    Dahlia-nms at all
    Jacqueline-pretty but dated
    Winter-too trendy/funky/hipster sounding
    Ariadne-don't know how to pronounce and would get mispelt all the time.
    Phaedra-weird to me (sorry)

    Audrey, Stella, and Esme are favorites of mine! They are trendy but I'm ok with that. I don't think they're overly popular, particularly Esme is pretty rare in the states. Stephanie is a bit of a surprise considering how popular it was in the 70's, it really reminds me of the 80's in a way that make it hard for me to like it even if I'm sure it's a lovely name. Isis, Charis, Francesca and Gianna sound very modern...in the US at least. Petra is lovely and unusual. I don't much care for the sound of Celeste. Carmen is a little dated, it's a good name, I just associate it with my mother's generation. Lola is very pretty and girlish. Scarlett is fun, but not really my style. Mariah I don't like much, I prefer Maria or Marie or Mary. Rhiannon, very beautiful, I've always loved this name but could never use it. Dahlia makes me think of the Black Dahlia, not a good association..although it is really pretty. Jacqueline is a great name, I think it's feminine and spunky even if it is a little dated.
