Looking for a girl's name for my 4th (due soon). Want something recognisable and easy to pronounce but not as popular as Chloe, Jessica etc.

Any ideas???

What are your other dd's called? What sort of names do you like?

Don't want to disclose dd's for fear of losing annonymity !! (they're not too wacky but you don't hear them all the time).

Don't want anything too 'now' - I'm called Anya, and quite like that level of 'unusual-ness' - most people can read and spell it, but I was the only one in the school.

Thanks for the list MBDtoKnow - some of those are great

We have a Maya - I love it, obviously grin and it seems to be unusual enough that a lot of people think it's pronounced May-er, which surprised me. If it doesn't bother you that people may mispronounce it, that is! Could also spell it Maia, which is pretty, although a friend's daughter gets mispronounced Mia (also a nice name, imo).

Or how about Edie or Matilda (Tilly or Matty are nice shortened versions).
