Beginning to feel very frustrated as my poor wee "Babygirl" still has no first name and to say I am fed up of being asked would be the understatement. ( She is 16 days old) Half the problem is H and I can't agree on the sort of name we want, I want something quite unusual and unique as we have the most boring surname Sm!th, he wants something traditional that people will have heard of. I seem to now be suffering with name fatigue and nothing suits. We had a short list but I decided I didn't want any of them once she was born, I had pretty much picked her name if she had been a boy - Alastair Kenneth.
I have a middle name, my favourite great aunt who couldn't have children - Eileen, and my maiden name as a second middle name.
suggestions please for "Babygirl" Eileen P@terson Sm!th - nickname is currently Tortoise
please if you know me on FB don't mention anything and please don't quote as may delete later.
We have named her Aurora - the grand national winner is pure coincidence! if I had know i would have put a bet on!
Introducing Aurora Eileen Paterson Smith!

See, we only had one name that we could agree on... So went with it.. I guess all I can do is offer up my short list.
Others I like but we couldn't have:
Milly / Tilly

We had a very similar problem and seem to be encountering it again this time. We ended up with Zoe Elizabeth. Zoe isn't a name I would have chosen, as I wanted a long name that could be shortened but it really does suit her.
The following were on my list if A had been a girl:
I'm sure you'll find something that suits her perfectly soon.

We were going to go for Olive. Less common than the very popular Olivia, and I quite like Liv.
Other names over the years have included; Aurelia, Poppy, Sofia, Calliope, Effie, Violet, Leonie, Elodie, amelie, and of course I have Eleni.

You're lucky you have so long to go and register them, here it has to be done by the third day! I was still deciding ten minutes before H left to go and do it (half an hour before the office shut on the third day) whether to give her a 'full' name or not and I still wonder if we should have but changes aren't allowed
what about Tamara (Tammy for short?), Beatrice...mind's gone blank.

We would have had Dorothea, Florence or poppy

A favourite of mine that b has vetoed is Tabitha.
Have you looked on nameberry, it's really useful.

I think I have looked at every website going! Having had so many pets I have "used" lots of names...

I like LM's suggestions of Scarlett and Olivia. Think you can go with something a wee bit fancy with your surname, so hard though.
My cousins use more unusual names for their kids, I'll list the girls in case you fancy any of them. Dionne, Ashtyn, Fallon, Adrianna, Darcy and Emily, which is very normal but still very pretty!

Or, I quite like the actress from desperate housewives names for her twins. Savannah and Eden?

I'm really liking India at the moment. I think it'd sound lovely with the other names.

Some of the girls names i loved were:
H liked Addison but i wasn't keen x
Good thinkin LM, I love love love Scarlett. Damn my surname, means I can never use it.
I also love Harriet.

Actually I've just thought of one of the lovely healthcare assistants at our children's centre - her name is Genevieve. I really quite like it and there could be a couple of variations in terms of shortening it if you wanted.
