My daughters name is .Kaylee so of course .I'm going to say .I like that one lol. I also like .Leah & .Ava though. Some that I was thinking of when I was pregnant were .Braylyn and/or .Braylee .. Not sure what you think of them but there are a couple more ideas anyway!
Thanks girls!! Right now i'm just having a super hard time deciding... Like i'll love one name, then completely change my mind. At the moment i'm liking .Molly, because I could picture a cute little girl lol... But I can't picture someone older named that. This baby name business is so hard!! Kudos to every pregnant woman who can decide on a name and stick with it!!
I agree on the ava bit. It's one of the hot names right now. Kaylee is pretty hot, too. Unless you're okay with your daughter being one of many little avas or kaylees her age, i'd go with something else.
I also like heidi (that's my name!) and leah. Raina's okay, too. I knew a little raina, and boy, was she a spitfire!
As far as compromise, you could agree to use one as a middle name. Joy sounds great with almost anything:
stay away from alliteration like jamie joy...It sounds cartoon-y.
I love the name claire! I want to name my child that so bad (if it's a girl!). I can't because my grandfather allegedly ran off from my grandmother with a girl named claire. Both are deceased but my mom would kill me if I did, dang it. The rest of the names you mentioned are great! You have good taste for names:). I really like the name leah. I don't think that is too popular right now, which in my opinion is a plus!
I like hannah, molly, joy and heidi.
Claire is nice, but I used to know this absolute bore of a girl called claire. She was ugly too, my mother used to always forget her name and refer to her as "that poor unfortunate girl that looks like a horse" so that name is totally wrecked for me!!!
Molly would be my first pick.
We could'nt use it, 'cos my husbands parents had a dog called molly.
