I am 38+2 weeks expecting my first baby (of unknown flavour), and quite truly am stuck for names... Not a shortlist anywhere!

I must admit, it's making me rather nervy, because I cannot imagine trying to string a sentence together when Baby arrives, let alone discussing possible names with DH!

He is of the opinion that we need to meet the little one first before picking a name. While not really the same, a dear friend has tried to allay my worries by reminding me that I have never had problems in naming my different and much loved pets, or even my car!

I would still like to browse about for names and find something that is rather unusual, without being ridiculous...

I have had a look at the top 100 names list, but am now looking for some alternative and recommended websites...

Any first favourites you could suggest if you've even been in a similar stuck-for-names situation?

Thanks ladies!

I quite like this one.

I think it is a good idea to find a shortlist you both agree on (5 names or so) and then pick from those once the baby is born. If you can, anyway - it's not always that easy! (says she, who named her second child by unilateral declaration grin).

Thanks for the link SlightlyTubbyHall = seems a great site!

Doubt DH is going to agree to a shortlist before hand, but I certainly will start forming mine and suggesting them once we meet the little one....

Ohhhh... thanks MrsvWoolf - I have more often than not found the lists of Top 100, so am looking forward to browsing beyond the top 100 (especially as I am hoping for something a bit unusual)...

Times spreadsheet and nymbler look great too
