    Pretty girl names that won't be too common anytime soon?

    We've settled on a boy's name but are still having trouble with our girl name. The middle name will be Celeste. Right now we like:

    Ada Celeste (too much like very popular Ava?)
    Annabel Celeste (too much like very popular Isabel?)
    Adeline Celeste
    Adelia Celeste
    Paloma Celeste
    Lila Celeste
    Emilia Celeste
    Sylvie Celeste
    Delilah Celeste

    Any other suggestions? Thanks!

    I love the middle name you've chosen. Celeste is one of my favorites! I love: Annabel, Adeline, Sylvia rather than Sylvie(not quite sure I like it with Celeste-how does Sylvia Celeste sound with your last name? I don't like Sylvie with Celeste that much), Lila (but it might get really popular!), Paloma, and Emilia. Names I thought of to go with Celeste that you might like: Viviana, Florentina nn Flora or just use Flora unless your last name just has two syllables, Bianca, Dahlia, Victoria, Natalia, Mirabelle, Simona, Marina (means from the sea-and Celeste means heavenly-great combo! but there is a brand of t.p. called Marina), Veronica, Julianna, Evangelina, Angelica (with Celeste would mean heavenly angel), Tatiana, Melina, Amelia, and Amelie.

    Great ideas, Susan. I agree that Ada is bound to get more common soon, and I think Amelia, Emilia etc. will too because of their closeness with the very popular Emma and Emily. Lila is lovely but another name that's so close to several on the rise: Lily, Leila, Lillian. You don't like Celeste for a first name?

    I think Paloma is gorgeous; exotic but not wacky. I'm also crazy about Lila, so simple and pretty.

    Thanks all! Great suggestions. Girls names are tough! Oh, and Celeste is a family name so that's the only reason for keeping it as the middle (we like to do family names for middle names).

    From your list, I'm quite taken with Paloma Celeste, it's beautiful! and Adelia Celeste makes me swoon! I love than an Adelia could be "Addy" to fit in or "Delia" to stand out!
    Sylvie's a love of my own but really doesn't mesh well with Celeste, and Sylvia's not much better. I want to suggest Sibyl/Sybil but it's not much better with Celeste.

    Some other, somewhat random suggestions:

    Willa Celeste
    Leonora Celeste
    Dahlia Celeste
    Genevra Celeste
    Althea Celeste
    Lyra Celeste
    Aviva Celeste
    Audra Celeste
    Clara Celeste
    Marian Celeste/Miriam Celeste
    Cora Celeste/Coralie Celeste
    Daphne Celeste
    Margery Celeste

    Hope that helps!

    For a girl we're considering Arabeila Grace or Arabella Grace and call her Bella Grace or
    Beila Grace. I love this name, but no one around me likes it.

    For a boy, it's James Caden, and call him Cade.

    Please give me an honest opinion.

    I love these names-

    Dellyn Shea (like Ellen but with a D on the front- call her Delle or Della for short)
    Avonlea or Avonleigh (from Anne of Green Gables... pronounced Avon-lee)
    Isla (pronounced Eye-la)
    Cozette (from Les Miserables- call her Cozy for short)
    Afton
