Hello Everyone,

just stopping by for some advice on girl names....

I have an 8 month old daughter named Hayliegh Jayde and I have just recently found out that I am pregnant again so I need to start thinking of some nice names that I can talk with my SO about.

When I was pregnant last time I chose Hayliegh's name and he chose a name for a boy, this time it is the same thing so here are the names I have been thinking about so far,

What do you guys think about:

Ava Grace
Morgan Elizabeth
MacKenzie Rhiann (prn Ry anne)
Emma Gracelyn

First congrats on the pregnancy. I like all of your names but my fav is MacKenzie Rhiann (prn Ry anne). I actually have a 3 1/2 week old baby named Mackenzie Rose. I really like the middle name you came up with in fact had I heard it before she was born we may well have used it.

Good luck!

Congrats on the pregnancy. I have to say i am not such a fan of these names i do like Ryann but i prefer Rhianna better. Have a happy and healthy 9 months!

I love Emma and Ava....they are very popular for sure (I believe Emma is number 2 and Ave is 9 on SSA? Don't hold me to that though!) but they are both timeless classics. Morgan and MacKenzie are both very harsh and masculine sounding to me (unsurprising as they were both originally boys names) and MacKenzie is getting super trendy. I would go with Ava personally, but Grace, while it is a lovely name is a bit filler-ish. It's like the go-to last name for everything (kinda like Marie used to be) I would go for something more unique and substantial in the middle name spot, here are some suggestions:
Ava Elizabeth (popular combo but very pretty)
Ava Josephine
Ava Jessamine
Ava Alessandra
Ava Juliet
Ava Sophia
Ava Violet
Ava Victoria
Ava Isobel

Out of your choices my fave is Ava Grace.
If I could mix it up with your chosen names I would go with Ava Elizabeth. Elizabeth isn't as popular nowadays but still a beautiful classic name with many nickname possibilites.
I aslo like Blondie's suggestion of Ava Isobel.
Mackenzie is my family name and one of my son's names so is boy to me.

I love the name Emma but I wouldn't use it because of popularity, I would pick Emma Elizabeth.

I love Ava and MacKenzie. I'm not a fan of Rhiann and I don't think it flows with MacKenzie. Emma is cute and Gracelyn is too. I don't care for Morgan, Elizabeth is popular but very pretty. I don't think Grace is a bad middle name, but its a very VERY popular one.

I like Ava Elizabeth.

Rhiann(prn Ry anne)[/b]
OMG! I was going to use Rhianne as a middle name because it's a combo of Ryan (DH's middle name) and Reann (pronounced Ray-ann, his sister's middle name). How neat!

I love that name.

I like Emma Grace and Elizabeth Grace and I like Rhiann. I am not a fan of Ava (it's ok), Morgan, MacKenzie or Gracelyn.

Good luck!

Hey Becky,,, Congrats on your pregnancy!! How exciting!

Out of the names you have chosen the only one I like is Ava,, but I agree with Rebecca.. Grace seems to be.. I don't even know how to explain,, but getting way too popular as a middle name.

Some other suggestions are:
Ava Sophia
Ava Juliana
Ava Faith
Ava Juliet
Ava Elisabeth

Good luck choosing!

Ava Grace
Morgan Elizabeth
MacKenzie Rhiann (prn Ry anne)
Emma Gracelyn

From your list:

I like Ava & Grace, just not as a combo. I agree with the other women who think Ava needs something besides just Grace as a middle name. I think a different name could spice it up instead of being a pretty, yet sorta boring name.

I like Morgan Elizabeth but it isn't my favorite from your list.

I don't like MacKenzie Rhiann. MacKenzie is very trendy so NMS & I don't like Rhiann because it sounds like a boy's name & I usually don't like boy's names on girls. Just my opinion of course!

I love the name Emma but you have to consider there are lots of Emmas and Emilys out there these days and if you don't mind having a super popular name then go for it b/c it is very pretty. In fact I think using a double name "Emma Grace" (drop the -lyn on Gracelyn)-- would be my favorite choice from your list so far.

Congrats on the baby BTW!!
