DH and I have been struggling with girl names. I have made a short list, but could use any additional names you want to suggest. DH is stuck on the name "Katelyn", and really isn't considering any other name right now. I am hoping to win him over with some other choices. I initially liked Katelyn too, but I have heard it is so popular.

This is for a sister for Amanda Rose.

So here's my current list:

Lilyana (nn Lily)
Analise (or Annalise) nn Anna
Kristin (nn Krista?)
Juliana (nn Julia)
Gabrielle (nn Gabi)
Angelina (nn suggestions? I don't like Angel)
Angelica (Same issue)
Katelyn (nn Katie) DH's only choice
Annika (nn Anna)
Rebecca (nn Becca)
Liana (nn?)

Other ideas? None of the above? Ugh.. none are just jumping out at me.. although I love Lilyana.. but Lily is so popular! At this point, I just need a name.. lol

My favorites on your list are Rebecca, Gabrielle, and Juliana. I think the A-names are too close to Amanda, especially Analise. If you both like the sound of Katelyn, have you considered naming her Catherine/Katherine and using Katelyn as a nickname?

Angie could be a nickname for Angelina or Angelica. But they might all be too close to Amanda.


Thanking Mandy for the amazing siggy!

Annika has always been a favorite of mine!

How about Eliana? Ellie for short?
