I just found out that I'm having a girl and I'm so stumped for names.. A few days before I found out I was pregnant I had a vision/thought/daydream whatever that the baby told me its name was Noah.. so I assumed this was a boy, and pondered the possibility of using Noah since that's what *he* told me *his* name was... Then after I found out baby is a girl I thought well hm, what about Noa for a girl? I looked it up and found that it actually has it's own biblical history separate from the boy Noah, and it also is a Japanese name that means something like "my love"... It's also #1 girl name in Isreal, #8 in the Netherlands, #25 in Spain and on the charts in a few other places.. apparently.
So my hesitation is that a lot of people will confuse this for Noah the boys name, right? And I'm not generally a huge fan of unisex names or using boys names on girls, but at the same time technically this is a totally separate name in it's own right..
We're thinking of using dh's Moms name as a middle name, her name is Oritela so Noa Oritela..
We have a fairly long, spanish last name, so it works well with that as well. Ds is Gabriel.
Curious about your honest opinions!
