I honestly don't think I can use any. I don't like any. I'm always a bit 'meh' when I hear any suggested.

Grace is my absolute only 'maybe', but I'm still not keen sad DH said he will use Gray as a NN and I'm so against that.

Maisy is a potential 'maybe', DH would use May as a NN and I'm more accepting of that.

Why is your dh so insistent on using a nickname? Why can he not use her actual name?

You have had 9 months to think of names so its not really acceptable for a 5 week old to still be nameless

@BakerBear I don't know, I'm not my husband.

Also, how is that helpful. It clearly is acceptable as you don't have to register until 6 weeks hmm

Gracie is nice.

Why does she need a name and a nickname? If you're going to call her May, which is a lovely name in its own right, why not just call her May? Especially as Masie is actually short for Margaret.

What kind of name do you like?

Are there any boys names that you do like?

Argeles Thu 25-May-17 14:07:40

What about a unisex/gender neutral name?

Some girls Names of childreni know that have nice nicknames too.

What's this obsession with nicknames. Just give her a lovely short name, there's loads of them.

I've always loved Jak or Toni for a girl (feminine spellings) but that's just me....

Gracie may

Just a suggestion if you don't like girls names why not try a boys name or surname as these tend to be the trend these days.
I've just been introduced to a 10 day baby girl called Perry. I'm not saying I like it but it actually suited her.

Faye ? He can't shorten that grin
Most nn come naturally after a while anyway.

Trampire Thu 25-May-17 15:01:27

I have a Lucy. Many find that boring but I like it and so does dd (now 12)

If my ds had been a girl he would have been called Rose.

Any use? It's common as a middle name but I hardly ever hear it as a first name.

I also like -

Penelope (Penny/Pen)

IamtheDevilsAvocado Thu 25-May-17 15:02:13

Eva/ava /eve/evie are lovely names!

Trampire Thu 25-May-17 15:03:13

True about nn coming about naturally.

My lucy was called - Luce, Looby Lou, then Loovs and now Loobster 😂

Trampire Thu 25-May-17 15:03:41

Sorry Loobs not Loovs. That would be very odd grin

OP, it took me weeks and weeks to name DC1 and then I changed it shock I felt bullied into choosing one I didn't really like and didn't really suit them - once I knew the right name, and knew it suited them, I had no doubts.

I agree - nicknames come naturally and kids often have different nicknames from family, school friends, out of school friends etc.
