Samantha-common/80s

Brielle- pretty

Skye- I like it

Mylie-LOVE it, but like the traditional spelling of Maile

Braylin- sounds like "brayin'" like a donkey.

Braylee- same as above. Sounds like a made up combo of Brayden and Kaylee

Jordyn- 90s trendy

Maya-pretty

Kaya / Kaia- just ok

Jocelyn- like it

Cambria- kind of pretty, but it's the name of a street here in a bad part of town.

Emery- Reminds me of Emery board, and the school in Atlanta, Emory.

Taryn- LOVE it! It's on my list.

Savannah- too 90s trendy

Olivia- WAAAYYY too common right now

I have to go with Taryn...

that's actually my 2 year old daughter's name. We always get compliments on her name for being so unique and pretty! I have never met anyone else with that name either, so it's not common at all, which was exactly what we were looking for. Other than the name Taryn, I also like Brielle!
