I really need some suggestions, I haven't been able to think of any girl names I like. I don't want anything too popular or trendy.

Thanks a bunch!

Hmm, that's a really general question. Take a look through a baby name book or a baby name website to get ideas.

Is there a letter that you are partial too? We could start with that....maybe "L" names or something....

What do you like?

The first step is to narrow down which names tend to appeal to you personally. There are a number of different styles.

Trendy names, which might appeal to you because they are a bit cutting edge and not associated with past generations:
McKenzie, Dakota, Jayla, Brielle, Neveah, Taryn

Currently popular names, which might appeal to you because they are pretty, safe, and current but not out-there:
Emma, Gracie, Madison, Madelyn, Hannah

Traditional names, which might appeal to you because they are solid and classic:
Elizabeth, Rebecca, Catherine, Sarah, Helena

Sophisticated names that are widely known but have been a bit less over-done through the ages:
Ruby, Serena, Lillian, Violet, Felicity, Natalie, Audrey, Hope, Charlotte, Laurel

Boys names or surnames on girls, if you are looking for something less frilly and more tomboyish:
Peyton, Harper, Reese, Cooper, Quinn, Avery, Delaney

Super-girly names, which might appeal if you're looking for something feminine with a good nickname:
Alexandria, Gabriella, Isabella, Victoria, Corinna, Vivienne

There are other categories and sub-categories, of course, and you might like names from any or all of them.

Wow! Kyle, I loved all those categories written out! Awesome!!! = )

Anyways, my idea for you is to go to the social security webpage, if you go to google and search baby names, it will show up probably in the first five. Then go to the popular names by birth year... change the popularity to the top 1000. Get a pen and a pad of paper and go through the list, writing down any that sound appealing to you. You can even start at # 1000 so they won't be too common at all. I did this and found some really cute names that I hadn't even heard of! BTW, if you end up doing this, post the ones you found! I'd love to hear them!

Thanks so much, you listed some really pretty names.

We have tried baby name books and websites, can't narrow anything down. Girl names are just so difficult.
