Help with Baby Girl Name!
I am about 2 wks away from my due date with our third child. We do not know the sex of the baby. We do have a few boys names we like but absolutely cannot agree on a girls name! Please, I need suggestions! Our first two kiddos names are Tristan and Avery. I feel like I want a unique name, not one that is too popular.
Thanks for your help!

So What Happened?™
Thank you so much to everyone who responded! We loved many of your suggestions and were ready with names for boy or girl. I had a beautiful baby boy last Sun. on my b-day! His name is Layke Noah. I will save the baby girl name suggestions for the next baby! Thanks again!

I just wanted to say I completely know where you are coming from. We have not found out either and I am due in seven weeks. We have a boy name but no where close to a girl.

It is difficult for the child as well as for those meeting/dealing w/ them (as a child and more importantly as an adult) when you can't discern the sex of the person right off the bat so I would definitely go with a name that you know what the sex is ( I've seen avery as both male and female so I'm not sure if your child is a boy or a girl). Nothing like...Cameron, Presley, etc.. It is so frustrating to be writing an introduction business letter, e-mail and not know if you should be putting Mr. or Ms. , or volunteering for something/ meeting someone and not knowing if you should be looking for a man or a woman in the crowd. I can only imagine how frustrating it must be to get letters, e-mails, etc. calling you a Mr. when you're a Ms.
Just a personal opinion but I always think that as a parent we need to be aware of what a name will look like (on a resume for example) and sound like when the child is an adult. A name that is ADORABLE for a child may not be so wonderful as an adult. Good luck!

With both of my children, we could never come up with a girls name. Ended up we did not need a girls name (LOL) we had two boys.
Aurea pronounced R E ah (I believe it is spanish for gold under the sea or something like that) Good Luck! & Congradulations

We went somewhat gender nuetral. Our first was an Aidan (okay, I would never use that for a girl!), BUT we chose Avery for our second (turned out to be a boy) and picked out Ashton for our third due in April (which we did find out is also a boy). I don't know about how unique these are, but I have always wanted a McKenna, a McKenzie, a Mickayla (there's a hundred ways to spell it) and an Anastasia. Unfortunatly, girls were not in my cards!!
