A Name isn't JUST a Name

All mothers must go through the endless lists of baby names until they find the perfect fit. At 31 weeks I still have not found it. I've gone from Googles most popular, to unique, to switching years all the way back to the 50's and nothing. Maybe I have not found it yet, or maybe I have and just don't know I have. i want something feminine, something with substance, something i can take a nickname out of, something girly and pretty! Is that too much to ask for? So Lord in front of all my fellow bloggers, I am asking for some help, guidance and direction. The perfect name is out there I just have to find it!

If you know of a baby girl name, which fits all of the above, please let me know... my time is running out!


  1. Naming a human being has to be an incredibly difficult decision. I mean, really - it has to stand the test of time in a real way.

    Ive always been partial to Grace and Catherine but those are hardly anything new.

    PS: Thanks for the sweet comment you left on my blog. I hope you stick around :)

  2. Hi Jenna,
    Oh how fun to pick out a gorgeous baby girl name for your future daughter!

    My neighbors new daughter is named
    "Anna Elizabeth" and I love both names together. I always have adored the elegant and timeless classics.

    Good Luck! I can't wait to hear all about her.
    ~Blessings, ~Melissa :)

  3. Thank you so much for your comment :)

    I like the names:
    Hannah (Bible name)
    Cara Bella (both names mean beautiful)

    Ive always tended to like different names...we named our son Rocky :)

  4. I'm sure this is a challenge. There are so many beautiful names out there. I have a tendacy to go for some of the "old" fashion name with charachter. Like Madeline Grace and so on.. Best of luck in finding the right one for your child. I'll be looking forward to reading what you decided on. Thank you for swinging by and for becoming a follower. I've entered you in the basket give away.. Good luck.. hugs ~lynne~

  5. I don't know what I could possibly add to your list of names. We have a wonderful daughter, named Amy. She wishes, however, that we had named her "Amelia". I also like the name, "Marcella", "Claire" and "Summer". It is so nice to meet you, btw; and I thank you for signing up for my blog. I look so forward to following your progress! Beautiful Blog!

  6. We had an easy time naming our first daughter, Isabella Sheridan (her middle name is a family name on my husband's side) but I was conviced my second child was a boy so I wasn't prepared when a girl arrived....we named her Addison, sometimes I wish we'd chosen a more "girly" name that also wasn't "trendy" but I now love her name and it really suits her. Hope you find just the right one for your daughter.
    PS: thanks for joining my blog... and I LOVE your blog title and colors!!

  7. Jenna, I've enjoyed reading your Blog and while this might be too late (baby might be here and named) I thought I would chime in with my own suggestion....Sara Elizabeth. Of course it is one of my daughter's names and I love it. The name Sara/Sarah (with or without the h) means Princess and Elizabeth means consecrated one.
    Hope all is well with you!


  8. I love unique names. All 4 of our kiddos have 2 middle names. I only have 1 girl and we named her Gabraelle (pronounced Gab-Ray-el) but we call her Gabby. I also like Isabella (Izzy) or Madison (Maddy.
