Okay I like common names that people can pronounce easily, not get butchered, but that aren't popular to the extent that there will be a bunch with the same name at the same time. I like trendy names but they tend to date the child, like you can tell about the time they were born by the popularity of the name. Like the year I was born I think Jennifer was number 1! I also want it to be a good name that works for a baby/child but also transitions well into adulthood!!!

I love Sara/Sarah, but fear it is to popular, what are some other timeless/classic names?

Thanks for all the great ideas:

I love:
Alexandra
Sarah
Gabrielle (never could sell DH on)
Grace
Olivia -thought was getting really popular
Victoria
Jessica -again had on list and love but really popular
Jordan - love thought of but good friends nephew died in a fire was named Jordan
Amelia
Bethany (DH no go)
Emily- Again love, thought of, but thought really popular
Isabel-Really like but DH is no sell
Jillian
Nadia
Natalie (thought about this one, may have to run by DH)
Zoe- Thought of, may have to reconsider
Quinn -really like but thought was more for a boy

My Mom and and Neice are Rebecca and Rebekah (Bekah) Elisabeth and sister is Gwendolyn, so those are out.
My grandmother was Stella, but sounds to old to me.
Had dogs named Lucy and Samantha (Loved Samantha and thought of but didn't want the child to think was named after a dog. LOL)

Already know a bunch of or are in family or close friend to use:
Anne, Catherine, Claire, Julia, Laura, Rachel, Allison, Ashley, Danielle, Kimberly, Lauren, Anastasia, Kathryn, Marie, Patricia, Tabitha.

Don't like:
Sophie, Jane, Abigail, Chelsie, Elle, Vera, Charlotte, Delaney, Fiona, Jane, Josephine, Lillian, Opelia, Opal, and Pearl.

I really was hoping for a name that would go with Jean as a middle name after my Mom, I don't love the name, but my Sister had already used her first name Rebecca/Rebekah. UGH.

I appreciate all the responses and will run some of these others by my DH, and see if we have any he will agree too!

How popular do you think Sarah, Alexandra, Emily, Natalie, Olivia, Amelia and Victoria are?

How about Stacy Jean?

I love the middle name Jean. My Gma's name is Norella Jean. Dads first name is Gene so when my parents had my sister they named her Stacy Jene.
