    35 weeks and still no name! Help!

    My daughter is due March 15th and she is still nameless. I'm going crazy trying to come up with something!! I like uncommon but cool names. My name is Holliday so I want to give my daughter something to match. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!!

    Re: 35 weeks and still no name! Help!

    Do you want to stick with word names (like yours)?

    How about:
    Cadence
    Cedar
    Clover
    Eden
    Haven
    Iris
    Isla (Eye-la)
    Juniper
    Lark
    Lux
    Lyra
    Lyric
    Meadow
    Pippa
    Poppy
    Scout
    Season (might be too cutesy with your name Holliday+Season!)
    Story
    True
    Violet
    Wren

    I'm generally more of a classic/vintage kind of girl so I would be tempted to pair a more unusual first name with a more classic middle. For example Lux Annabella or Isla Grace.

    It doesn't have to be a word name but I do like Haven. That's really pretty. Her middle name is going to be Lenore, my mom's middle name. I'm not sure if you would call that name classic/vintage but it is an older name. I'm starting to think that I'll never name my kid! Thanks for your suggestions.

    Paloma-means dove
    Elise
    Tatiana nn Tati
    Iris-means rainbow
    Nevaeh-Heaven backwards
    Avalon-island paradise of Celtic myth nn Ava (Ava is extremely popular)
    Paris
    Parisa-means like a fairy
    Journey- too cutesy probably with Holliday, but I couldn't resist.
    Ambrose-boy's name, but would easily work for a girl.
    Acacia
    Acadia
    Fiona
    Ariel
    Indigo
    Neola
    Jasmine
    Jacaranda-a beautiful purple flowering tree nn Jacky
    Leilani-from now on these are from my beach baby list of names.
    Coral, or even Cora
    Catalina
    Sailor
    Venice-love this!

    I would definitely call Lenore vintage, it's very nice! Here are a few more combined with Lenore:

    Amity Lenore
    Artemis Lenore
    Daisy Lenore
    Delphine Lenore
    Esme Lenore
    Harper Lenore
    Halcyon Lenore
    Haven Lenore
    India Lenore
    Tansy Lenore

    Would you consider using Lenore or Lenora as a first name, maybe with the nn Nora? I think Nora is adorable! Good luck, you'll pick one eventually. Maybe you'll just have to meet her first :)

    I think that Haven Lenore is really beautiful. I like Lenore first too, I knew a Leora and thought that her name was so pretty and vintagey, Lenore has some of the same feeling. I appoligize for any repeats but here are some names that you may like:
    Harper Lenore
    Ellery Lenore
    Milla Lenore
    Afton Lenore
    Zinnia Lenore

    Good luck!!
