Baby Naming

Did you know that 11% of parents regret the name they gave their baby according to!  

I think it's pretty stressful to pick out a name for your baby.  You want something unique, but not crazy.  You want the name to be cute for when they're little, but also professional-sounding for when they're an adult.  You want the first and last name to sound nice together.  You don't want obvious bad nicknames to be derived from your child's name.  And you don't want your child's initials to spell something undesirable.

As if that isn't enough to consider, new research shows that an easily pronounceable name may be linked to career success.  A study published by the Journal of Experimental Science found that among 500 US lawyers, those with simple names - such as John and Sue - were promoted more often.

You may know that our third girl is due this October.  I am a bit nervous about picking a name for this little girl.  It was hard enough for us to come up with Ava and Sidney's names.  And I love their names so much.  I just can't imagine that we will find another girl name that we love just as much.

Here is the list of the Top 100 Girls Names in the US (according to a search I did on Google):

Nothing has jumped out at me so far.  What are your favorite girl names?  Maybe you can help us name our baby!
