I am 37 weeks today and have been on this name mission since finding out she was going to be a girl. Its so difficult to find an original un-recycled name which is pretty at the same time. I feel your pain.
Some of my shortlist is: Lola, Lily, Peyton, Alice, Francesca and Darcy.
Im under added pressure naming her now because of the huge fuss I have made at not being able to settle on a name, so now its like I am announcing the name of the bloody royal baby! A hoard of family members waiting on bated breath doesn't make it any easier so keep your name dilemma secret lol.

What about Gillian? (Plugging my own name here) it's a real name, only 3 people called it in 2015 and it's pretty but with the cool nickname Gill. I'm only 30 and there's almost no one my age with the name, which I've always liked.
