I also don't like names that are over used. My hubby likes Abby and I refuse, I don't want 5 other kids in the class with the same name. Caitlin is common, but I was young and it actually fits her perfectly. I wouldn't change it at all. Speaking of masculine girl names, I love love love Ryan or Ryann for a girl!
I like Ryan too for a girl (but that's my cousin's son's name). I imagine that Caitlin is common in Tx (your DD looks like a Caitlin so it was a good fit) but not in Miami. Actually haven't had one in 8 years of teaching. Same with Abby. Neither of those names are common for a black girl here either. That would be more Kesha, Tawana, etc.

I wouldn't choose Lily b/c it's my bf's grandma's name and I know she's hoping to have a daughter to name after her gma. My sister would name her daughter Leiloni or something like that. My brother gave his daughter a pretty ugly combo name-- Denise Rochelle (Denise is fine but Rochelle...)

Nevaeh is soooooooo overplayed and parents usually think it's unique.
