I'm due in September, and I'm 99% we will not be finding out the gender at my ultrasound in 2 weeks, so I will need a boy name and a girl name, but we pretty much have our boy name set in stone (and I do have a hunch it's a boy anyway). Girl names have always been harder for us to settle on.
So far these are our top contenders:
Summer Elizabeth- have always liked nature/hippie/season names and summer is my favorite season. Elizabeth was my great-grandma, and is a name I've always loved, not to mention one of the few that sounds good with Summer.
Molly(middle name undecided, possible Renae, which is my mn)- I'm a big fan of pretty much any name with double "L"s, and have loved the name my whole life. My only hesitation is that my son is named Mason, and I don't really like any other M names and wouldn't want to continue the M thing with any future children. So I wouldn't necessarily want 2 kids with M names and others without. Having said that, there is a good chance that we won't be able to have any more kids due to fertility issues. We were in the adoption process when we found out I was pregnant and will likely continue that after this baby arrives. So any future child of ours will probably be adopted, which adds to my not wanting them to be left out of the M thing. BUT I do love the name.
Halle- More double "L"s, I just like the sound of it, but I'm not a big "Haley" fan and they would likely get called that a lot.
Josie- This was our girl name with DS, I still like it, BUT my parents named their dog this about a year ago. Nice.Kiera/Keira- I like, but I see pronunciation/spelling issues. (I like the sound of "Kee-ra"
Chloe- I like, may be a tad overused?

I like Summer Elizabeth a lot, but I think my favorite is between Molly Renae and Keira. My sister's name is Kyra pronounced Keera, I think it's beautiful and you don't see it much. I think Keira is your most unique and different choice out of your baby names.
I think all of those name choices are lovely!! Summer Elizabeth is great, as is Molly Renae and I also like Josie and Chloe. I like Kiera but i would probably spell it Kyra because i like the "Y" in girls names. Like i said, those are all great names IMO
Halli (same pronounciation, different spelling) is on my list. I like it bc it's a simple name but not trendy. I agree that a lot of people will pronounce it "Hall-E", but it's a pretty name and once corrected that's that.
