( looking for inspiration as i just can't seem to find a girl's name i like)

I dont personally love any i have come across so far or popular ones such as Olivia or Isabelle so looking for some underused but still recognisable names that we might like? I don't think i explained this very well but oh well! What's your favourite girl namd that you think should be used moresmile

Helena. Classic and easy to spell.

I was 10 when I decided to name any daughter I might have, even if it echoes with my surname (second syllabe "li"). Still in my mind a decade later, and probably will be for another before I start ttc.

@madameJosepine I meant to include Jennifer! I LOVE that name! We very nearly called DD1 Jennifer but my nsme is Gemma so decided it was too similar (Gem/Jen). Such a shame!

I wouldn't say all of these were unpopular. I'm tripping over Sophies
Chloes. I'm from Liverpool, though. So, it could be a Regional thing
And you might be surprised to learn Julia Sarah and Leah and Emma are all in the top 100 girls names
