    Hey guys

    We're struggling to come up with a girls name for our bub due in Oct.

    Would love to hear some suggestions from the forum :)

    Cheers

    Jamie

    Louise

    (I am biased, my daughters name:)

    I personally try to stay away from popular names, it will drive you crazy when she starts school and every second child has same name

    Just had at a list of popular names - not that you want to be like everyone else. But there are some lovely names being regenerated. I really like Aubrey or Audrey.
    Other pretty names I like are Chloe and Mia (though a little cat-like) and Zoey, Leah, Aria and Brooklyn - I prefer Brooke.
    Family background can help too eg Irish. Some of the old catholic/protestant/other regious names are still classics - whether you're that way inclined or not.

    Gimme Moore
    Forever Moore
    Any Moore
    Clay Moore
    Dulci Moore
    Ever Moore
    Further Moore
    Never Moore
    Sopho Moore
    Syca Moore
    One Moore
    Alittlebit Moore
    No Moore
    Once Moore
    Something Moore
    ThanAFeeling Moore (Moore, ThanAFeeling)
    ThanMeetsTheEye Moore (Moore, ThanMeetsTheEye)
    ThanWords Moore (Moore, ThanWords)
    ThanEver Moore (Moore, ThanEver)
    OrLess Moore (Moore, OrLess)
    ToThisLife Moore (Moore, ToThisLife)

    No, just call her "One" ... so then she can be One Moore (next daughter can be Two Moore!) and then when she marries she can choose her partner based on his name and hyphenate:

    One Moore-Knight
    One Moore-Time
    One Moore-Day
    One Moore-Song
    One Moore-Sleep
    One Moore-Try
    One Moore-Shot
    One Moore-Step
    One Moore-Chance
    One Moore-Dance

    ... of course when she is a baby, she will be A Little Moore.

    So much opportunity here - don't waste it!!!

    I have an Emmeline. I like that she shares her name with Emmeline Pankhurst who got women the right to vote in england (although mine wasn't named after her). Is this your first daughter Jamie?

    Oh no not popular names

    I named my eldest daughter Olivia, not popular at the time and 10 years down the track everyone is calling their child Olivia. I suppose who cares, if you like it:)

    Something interesting Americans will often use a family surname as Christian name.
