    Before you go any further read the bold!
    I hope you all read this in a humorous way! Please no one take offense to any comments I make about any names.

    My sister is thinking about having another kid and yesterday we were talking and we start naming some good names. We named like 20 names and realized we hadn't said any girls names!!!! [​IMG] Honestly, I can't think of one girls name I like. Can you guys help me out and name some good girls names. [​IMG]

    Here is a SHORT list of boys names I like

    Micheal
    Kory (Allen[middle name])
    Elliot
    Brandon
    Tanner
    Connor
    Jordan
    Channing
    Dylan

    I could go on for awhile

    Dh piceked my dd's name,but I know if I ever have any other kids they will be Matt or Emma. Those names just came to me many years ago,and I think that often happens. I like unique names,but not so much the unique spelling of common names.

    I also like looking through the family tree at the first and middle names of relatives from long long ag:hmmurs though would be odd for you as they are from Euro countries.
    Some girls from my kids school that come to mind:

    Emily
    Shaylee
    Hanna
    Elsie

    I love the name Kyra, but sadly that is one of my very good friends name. Go figure?

    Quote:I had a very bad experience with an Emily when I was younger so no
    My cousins name is Shayla, too close to the same name
    I have a friend named Hannah
    I don't like Elsie because I couldn't imagine a 50 year old woman named Elsie, it would be a good name for a little girl but they grow up eventually [​IMG]

    I don't like Desiree
    My aunts name is Amanda
    I know 2 people named Cheyenne
    Rose reminds me of that girl from 2 1/2 men and I hate her
    January is a month, not a name
    I don't like Nicole but Nicky is ok
    LOL you put my 2 least favorite names together; Beth and Anne to make the ultimate worst name
    I already talked about Kyra 2 posts up
    Can you imagine a 50 y.o named Starr? No.

    I work at an elementary school and I see many unusual girls names such as boys' names spelled with a "y" or "I" to make them more feminine, president names, states and of course just plain made up names. Personally, I like the old fashioned names a little better.

    Examples

    Boys names spelled different

    Jasyn
    Camryn
    Jeszie
    Alyx

    President names

    Kennedy
    McKenzie or Makenzie
    Madison or Madisyn
    Tyler or Tylyr
    Taylor

    States

    Dakotah
    Montana
    Nevada
    Carolina

    Quote:It makes me wonder that 50-80 years from now, "Madisyn" and "Camryn" and "Katelyn" (in all of its incarnations) are going to be considered "little old lady names" like Hazel and Maude are considred today.
