    First Baby ...Help with Girls Names

    I'm 6 months pregnant and while we have a strong list of boys names we are struggling with girls names.

    >I'm an "Ashley" so popularity of a name is important to me. I would hate for our child to have a super popular name and be the 3rd in his/her class (Blah).

    >My dh is named Kelsey so we don't mind unisex names.

    >I work with kids so certain names are off limits because I associate them with a particular child.

    Here is what we have for boys:

    Jasper - LOVE, this is my favorite!
    Anderson - Like the idea of calling him "Andy" for short.
    Miller - Haven't heard this one on another baby and like the "er" ending.
    Prescott - Like the formal feeling.

    Our girls list:

    Emmie - The only name we agree on. Originally we were leaning toward "Emerson" but concerned too trendy & becoming popular.
    Makinley - dh loves this one. I'm not convinced.
    Robyn - I think it's very sweet...dh thinks it's outdated.
    Lucy - I think it's really spunky & my favorite heroine > dh says it's a dogs name.
    Channing - Never met a Channing, think it's charming > dh concerned people will call her "Chan" which he hates.

    ***In addition we have our baby's middle name already chosen to honor family. If it's a girl it will be "May Rose" or "Opal May".

    OK...phew...that's it. Please help

    Emmie is very nicknamey to me, though it IS pretty cute. How about Emmeline, Embry, or Emery instead?

    I don't really like Makinley either. It looks like a misspelled traditional Irish name. Do you like Marlowe, Marjorie, or Marley?

    Robyn is probably my favorite from your list! Maybe he'd like a different bird name though? Like Wren, Oriole, or Peregrine.

    Lucy always reminds me of Lucille Ball! She'd be a pretty cool namesake. But, maybe your DH would like Luna, Luella, or Lorelei better?

    Channing just makes me think of Channing Tatum, which makes me think it's a very masculine name. Chesney, Chantilly, and Charlize are more feminine.

    Some combos:
    Emmeline Opal May
    Marley May Rose (I like this alitteration, it sounds musical)
    Wren May Rose
    Luna May Rose
    Charlize Opal May

    Hope this helps!

    You have some nice boy names.

    For girls i like Robin the best. Lucy second.

    Instead of Channing, what about Chanel? (Sha-nelle)?
