HELP PLEASE!!!

With my first pregnancy I struggled with girl names. I love boy names and luckily out popped out my DS. We didn’t know the sex and I wasn’t 100% on my girl name pick 😅

Now I’m 24 weeks pregnant with baby number 2 and we did not find out the sex again. We have a boy name we love but I’m struggling with a girl name again 😩

Any suggestions ?!!!!! I don’t like super unusual names but I’m more drawn towards uncommon or less popular names but not always . I’m not that bothered if it’s popular if I love it .

My son is named Emerson. If we have a boy again his name will likely be Egan. Elliott is the runner up name . If we had a girl last time her name would’ve been Everly.

Other girl names I like but aren’t quite right :

Skye ( my favourite so far )
Skylar
Brynn
Brinley
Flora
Clara
Callie
Billie
Millie
Delaney
Tessa
Kinsley
Evelyn
Evie
Everly


If there is anyone who likes the same names as me or is just great at suggesting names , give me your top picks !!!!!

I feel your struggle - I’m 29 weeks with a little girl and had a boys name sorted immediately but I cannot think of girls names that I love.
The ones that I’m stuck on/my faves at the moment are:
Grace/Gracie
Aurelia
With Evelyn as a middle name for any of these. But still neither quite feel like the one for me.

So from your list I like Evelyn, Everly, Clara, Tessa (but that might be because I know I’d a lovely little girl call Tess)

You could have Emerson and Lake - especially if your family name is Palmer!!!

Everett
Ember
Elora

I was also conflicted with one of my twins names but a few days before birth, a name we had considered the whole time, finally felt like the one. Maybe that will happen when you meet your baby?

No name recommendation, but I’m 24 weeks pregnant with a little girl and have a name I’d always loved and wanted to use. However I wasn’t sure it felt quite right. Me and DP have now been referring to her as this name and it suddenly feels just right! I know this is more difficult as you’re having a surprise, but maybe you could alternately refer to the baby as your top boy’s/girl’s nines and see if they start to feel right.

I feel your pain, I'm pregnant with my first who we were convinced was a boy and had a name all sorted but we've since found out she's a girl! I'm toying with Clementine but not 100% sure but not sure on any others either!

@milienhaus I do like Everly . I haven’t gone off it but I just wasn’t 100% certain last time around . I liked it enough that if I had a girl that would have been her name . And I think it goes perfectly with my sons name ( Emerson). I don’t know why I’m being so picky 😔
