Baby Names

Now that we know we are having a girl, we need to decide on a name! We want to have a few names picked out and then decide once we see the baby. Our requirements for the name are:

1) Sound good in English & Spanish

2) Not appear on the recent top 100 lists

3) Not be a name that usually goes by a nickname

And of course we have to agree on the name. As of right now, we don’t have a single girl name! We had a few boy names that fulfilled our requirements, but all the girl names we like appear on the top 100! (well our names are slight variations of names in the top 100)

I suppose everyone is trying to choose a unique name and go with names that were not common in our day, but have become common now. Like Aaliyah. So many people my age loved the singer and I know 3 baby Aaliyahs. (#89 in 2012)

Some people have had their baby names picked out for years and are just waiting to use them. Other people are like me and trying to decide a few months before baby. How about you? Do you have names picked out for your future little ones? Did you decide last minute like me? What kind of requirements do you have for baby names?
