i see that many have suggested Delaney, and that was on my short list for girls names (but was hoping for something w/just 2 syllables and went with Audrey, my husband's first choice, instead).!!

Danica/Danika seems too prominent right now due to the popularity of Danica Patrick the race car driver...

But I knew a woman who named her daughter Danna (or maybe it was Dannah with an H), which I thought would be cute to honor my brother Daniel. I'm not a "Danielle for Daniel" fan, but I though Danna sounded sweet.

I have a Danica too (mine is spelled with a "c" - you can choose either the "c" or the "k" variation). Many people have commented to us how pretty and unusual her name is.

We played with the idea of Darienne (which is a more feminized version of Darian)... It's switching the placement if the A and D in the name Adrienne. We agreed on a different name for our daughter, but I still think Darienne is pretty and unique.

I haven't read the other posts yet. So, sorry if I repeat. One of my friend's just named her baby Delanie. You could spell is Delaney. I think Dillon is neat for a girl since it is usually a boy's name. Best wishes for a great pregnancy and a healthy baby girl!

Debbie, Danielle, Dormilee (Dormi, rhymes with "stormy", for short, she was named after a great-aunt), Della, Dorothy and D. are the female D names in my family. BTW, my name, D., is pronounced like the boys name Derek with an "a" at the end, or like Erica but with a D in front. It means "beloved leader".

I used to think my name, D., was relatively uncommon, but there are a ton of us here on Mamapedia (I've personally never been a huge fan).

Delaney is a cute one I'd wanted to name a girl. My husband didn't agree.

Devon/Devyn has become more popular.

I'd check the Social Security Administration's website to see if you can search girls names by "D" and see what results are there:

Dominique isn't necessarily unique, but I don't hear the name much anymore. And she could go by Nicki. I would suggest getting one of those 100,000 baby name books and opening both the boy and girl D sections.

Davita, Delilah, Dacia, Desiree.

I've only known 1 of each of these in my lifetime (but no Delilah's), so I think they are pretty unique. Even though I haven't known a Delilah, I know there was recently a popular song that used that name, so you might want to look into that one. Good luck!
