Me and my husband have changed our baby's name a couple of times now, at the begining of the pregnancy we were going to go with savannah if it was a girl.. well after we found out that it WAS a girl, we decided to go with Rylee, but now I am having second thoughts, because the name is pretty popular now, and I don't want her to go to school with 3 other Rylee's in her class kwim? The other thing is that alot of people when I say oh we're naming her Rylee they say oh, I thought you said you were having a girl, isn't Rylee a boy's name.. UGH. Anyway, I really really love the name Bella but I don't like Isabella really, and dh doesn't want to go with Bella, he said its a cute nick name but not something that he could see a 30 year old having in an office ya know. So anywhere heres my poll.. let me know what you think!

Thanks so much, and please don't think I'm crazy LOL.. I just wanna take care of this now, than not beable to decide when she is born.. ya know.

I voted for Gabriella that way you get a name that is more sophisticated and ages better than Bella but you still have Bella as a nickname option as well as Briella, Brielle, Brie, Ella etc

Gabriella is gorgeous. Bella and Savannah are okay, but I think Gabriella is prettier and ages better. Bella could be a nickname for Gabriella.

I don't really like Rylee. That spelling is just so childish and cutesy, and it seems like every other little girl now is named Rylee, or Riley, or Reilly, or Ryleigh... or some other weird spelling of it. And I see it on boys, too, even the weird spellings. Plus, it's a pretty common name for dogs. It reminds me of a poodle in my neighborhood.

I can imagine Bella on a thirty-year-old, but not Rylee.

I agree,

And that is what I was telling dh too.. its not like I don't like the name Rylee, because I really do.. I just think it would go better for a little boy than a girl and it seems WAY to popular right now.

WDYT of Faith as a middle name for Gabriella, we have a plain jane last name, so I just want something that is pretty and flows together, I think Rylee Everette and our last name in particular would sound more like a law firm.

I think Riley and Everett are both for a boy and changing the spelling doesn't really change the gender.

So, I have to say that Gabriella Faith is much, much better. Very girly.

Gabriella with Bella as a nickname, that way you can have two of your four names

Savannah would be my second choice, though. Savannah is also gorgeous- but I just love the nickname options of Gabriella.

You could always do Gabrielle Savannah or Savannah Gabrielle. Here are some other middle name options for Gabriella...

Gabriella Jade
Gabriella Claire
Gabriella May/Mae
Gabriella Paige
Gabriella Quinn
Gabriella Rose
Gabriella Brynn
Gabriella Blythe
Gabriella Carys
Gabriella Dawn
Gabriella Elise
Gabriella Ruby
Gabriella Eden
Gabriella Hadley
Gabriella Iris
Gabriella Kylie
Gabriella Rylie
Gabriella Lindsey
Gabriella Lynette
Gabriella Peyton
Gabriella Sadie

Bella is a charming, classy name I have an Aunt Bella in her 50s and i think it works well. While Gabriella and Riley are also beautiful names, i feel like they don't age very well..I can only picture them on a child, adolescent, and young adult up to her early 20s, but beyond that the names seem ill-fitting.

Gabriella is beautiful. It sounds classy and feminine, but Bella and Gabby are cute nicknames for a little girl too. It would definitely be my pick out of those.

Savannah is pretty popular. Bella I like, and I think it works for older women too, but it doesn't leave her with much choice, kwim? The only other thing she could be called is Belle.

I do still think of Rylee (any spelling, because they all sound the same) as being much more boyish than feminine. And it is very popular. There probably won't be four other Rylees in her class but there might be a Riley and a Ryleigh in her class! Then they'd end up boy-Riley, Ryleigh-with-a-G-H, and Rylee-with-two-Es.

I think Gabriella Faith is a beautiful name.

Thanks to all who voted.

We are going with Gabriella.. as soon as I came up with a middle name, dh instantly fell in love with it.. and thinks it would fit her personality better than Rylee. Thanks to all!
