I settled on Dc2s name and now I am 33 weeks with Dc3 I really am trying so hard to find a name I love like I did with Dc1 but it's just not happening sad

Names that have been in the mix so far are:


The only one I could definitely see myself using is Aria, but unfortunately we really can't use it (long story) .

Keep looking! You've got over a month to go yet! If you like Aria what about Alba? I love that name and would have used it if we'd had a girl.

Keep looking, there's plenty of time left to choose.

Don't just look in baby name books, I think you can get 'name blindness' doing that. I've seen lots of great names looking at the credits of films and TV programmes.

Or look back at yours and your DH's family tree, there could be a great name just waiting to be discovered.

There is a girl in my DS's class called Arrah, could that be an option? There's also Zaria which I liked last pregnancy. I also like Aurora.

I don't really know where else to look. I don't really look in baby name books mostly just Google and thinking of TV books etc.

I feel like if I was going to find the name I would have found it by now.sad

Arrietty? (The Borrowers)

Are there any particular sounds you like, or meanings?

Also, congratulations!
