    Nothing has struck our fancy yet

    we're expecting baby #3 in a few months, and we have no real leads on a girl's name. we're not the type who say "let her get here and we'll see who she looks like," we're more the planning type. so not having a girl's name is driving us nuts!

    our girl's choices for the other pregnancies were Elisheba (never had a middle name figured out) and Celia Marie. as it was, we had two boys, Caedmon Lucas and Jon Micah.
    we tend to like more vintage-classic names, Not the uber popular ones, and ones that have a biblical background or special meaning are a plus.
    the only real possible combination that is in contention right now is Norah Elizabeth. (elizabeth is my middle name, hence it gets a pass on the popularity thing.)
    anyone have any other ideas for girl's names that might work? we're going nuts!

    Re: Nothing has struck our fancy yet

    Just some ideas from the top of my head:

    Biblical --

    Adah
    Adina
    Atara / Atarah
    Bethel
    Bethia / Bethiah / Bithiah
    Dinah
    Esther
    Hadassah
    Junia
    Kezia / Keziah
    Liora / Leora
    Lois
    Persis
    Salome
    Samira
    Sapphira
    Sarai
    Selah
    Tabitha
    Zilla
    Zipporah


    Vintage / Historic--

    Acacia
    Adela
    Alessa
    Alethea
    Amabel
    Aurelia
    Briony
    Cassia
    Charis
    Cecily
    Claudia
    Cressida
    Elodie
    Emilia
    Esme
    Estella
    Felicity
    Felicia
    Flora
    Francesca
    Ione
    Lavinia
    Lelia
    Linnea
    Livia
    Lucille
    Magdelene
    Mirabel
    Mireille
    Mireia
    Ophelia
    Romola
    Rosabel
    Rosalind
    Sabina
    Sidonie
    Sylvia
    Verity
    Viola
    Vivienne

    There are two sisters, Hadassah and Sarai at the school I teach at (both are fair red heads -- which was interesting for my visual associations of the names) and I have a Keziah in my class. Her parents pronounce it 'KEZ-ee-a' rather than the biblical 'kez-EYE-uh'.

    what about Noemi pronounced NO emm EE? its biblical and you could use Elizabeth as a middle name.
