Need Help For My Baby Girl
Hi everyone --
I'm stressing over not having a name yet for my little girl. I'm only 4 months, but I've known it was a girl for over a month already, and I can't even come up with a short list!
Here are some things
1. My last name starts with S
2. I like classic sounding names.
3. Easy to spell/pronounce. No obvious ethnic implication
4. No made up names. No creative spelling
5. Not a super popular name where there will be 2 or 3 or more in her class.
6. I love soft feminine names. Starting with a short vowel sound would be a bonus.
Here are some names I've thought of and why they won't work:
Alice --> Doesn't go with an "S" last name
Ella --> Too popular
Megan --> Spelling disaster
Molly --> I do like it, but seems like it's getting too popular. Also, does it work for an adult?
Julia ---> There's nothing WRONG with this name. I just don't love it.
Zoe --> Love it, but it was a pet's name :P Also, too popular maybe?
Elizabeth / Nickname Libby --> Considering it.
Dorothy --> I want to like it, but it still sounds just slightly too dated for me.
Elsa --> I like it, but don't know if it's going to sound too dumpy.
If it had been a boy I might have gone with Asher - although that seems like it's getting too popular too.
Anyway - hopefully that gives a sense for the names I'm considering.
Would love advice.

Alice -> Adele?
Ella -> Eleanor?
Megan -> Margaret nn Meg? Megan feels somewhat 80s to me, do you like Erin or Erica? Start with a short vowel sound and meet some of your other criteria
Molly -> I like it, it's not too popular at all around me but be sure it works for you. What about Polly? Amalia nn Mali/Molly? Mary nn Molly with other nn options?
Julia -> Juliet? Dahlia (nn Dolly since you like Molly?)
Zoe -> Phoebe, Daphne? Zara?
Elizabeth -> Edith? Eliza?
Libby -> Lydia?
Dorothy -> Thea? Dora? Could have nn Dolly like Molly
Elsa -> Elena? Eliza?
Here are a few more thoughts:
