My daughter and son-in-law think they have a name but it has changed weekly so I am not getting attached yet.

Adalyn Belle (nn Addie)
mn is family name and a must. Lynn is both grandmas mn but not necessary.

They love the name but are worried about the nn being too popular. So many names have been chosen throughout this pregnancy. He says he is not picky but he won't use a name that someone he knows has (regardless of how much he sees them). If the nn could sound boyish, it's out. They have gone through Ellie and Jacelyn just to name a couple. The mammoth on Ice Age is named Ellie. Jacelyn sounds like a boy if someone called her Jace. They love Paige but need more than one syllable with short mn and ln. Anyway that's why I am afraid to get used to it. My DD asked me to let her know if I heard anymore unusual but pretty names, so let me know if you think of any.
Siblings are Caden Mitchell (Mitchell after dad) and Drake Marshall (Marshall after dad's grandfather)

Thanks for your input!

I don't Addie is that common of a nick name, though I guess with the popularity of Addison it might be getting up there. If they're worried about, Adalyn seems just fine on it's own - I wouldn't use a nick name at all personally. I think it's a really pretty name.

Have they considered Emmaline or Madeline (mad-uh-LINE) or Adelaide?

I think Adalyn Belle is very pretty I think I gave all of my -lynn suggestions the other day....

Avalyn(n) (Av-uh-lyn or Ava-lyn)

Lots of names can be paired with the ending -lynn.

I think Adelyn Belle sounds beautiful too. I prefer the Adelyn spelling though.

Jocelyn is my favorite -lyn name. There are so many nickname options: Jo, Joey, Josie, Jolie/Joely, Joss, and Lynn.

Jocelyn is my favorite lyn name. That would've been Jacoby's name if he'd been a girl

Jamielyn Belle
Jessalyn Belle
Evelyn Belle
Emmalyn Belle
Gracelyn Belle
Karilyn Belle
Caitlyn Belle
Marilyn Belle
Madelyn Belle

Good luck!
And yeah, it's probably best to not get attached. Our baby's name changed several times during the pregnancy and even changed again AFTER the birth
