oh ya domergrl, in the last year, ive hear of probably at least 5 Neveah, thank goodness, all little girls so far.
one name that is very unique, and stuck w/me always was Rilya. And why it stuck w/me, is for one, it stands for Remember I Love You Always..and for two, its for a little girl that went missing..very sad, and her name always seemed bittersweet. Pretty though...
on the lighter side, someone recently told me my sons name is a girls name, not a boy. His name is Ryan. - now, grant you, i acutaly know TWO girls name d Ryan, (well, one Rhian) but still, sheesh.

Don't worry I still know more male Ryan's than female ones...it's still a boys name. I always liked the name Jordan, but was informed that it had become a girls name when I was pregant with my boys...I caved and went with ultra traditional boys names - Samuel and Matthew - not very creative but I am assuming people will be able to spell them, not think they may be girls, and hopefully will not make up silly nick names for them. Oh the joy and stress of naming a baby. Thank goodness I didn't have girls, my ten year old still wouldn't have a name...I love soooo many girls names...LOL

I don't have any specific names to list -- many have put great names down. I'll merely tell you how I named my daughter: Celene Mirth

Her first name I found after many months of going through all kinds of literature books, and encyclopedias, and volumes of other materials. I wanted a name that was two syllables (yes, because it's easier to call them), and I wanted something with a good meaning and symbolism.

I came across the mythology of Selena, the Greek Goddess of the Moon. I loved the story of her faithfulness to her beautiful man who was taken from her and how she rode her chariot each night through the sky (she represented the moon). I chose the spelling Celene because I wanted a balance and I liked the difference with the C, but the balance of all e's.

Her middle name was the result of my ex-husband who is Jewish, and often a child is named after a relative who died. I did not like his deceased mother's first name of Madeline, so we compromised and found an "M" name: Mirth -- which means "happiness." (I actually went through the entire dictionary for "M" words!!)

Celene is a very happy and well-adjusted teen, and I call her my "Happy Queen Celene." She said she gets many compliments on her name, and she loves the fact that there is a story associated with it, and she loves her name, which makes me feel good, too.

And that is how I named my daughter!

Congratulations PHM!

My daughter's name is Aria Diane and my son's name is Ethan Daniel.

My husband came up with Aria which means an opera solo. Her red hair and feisty personality and girlie girlieness go perfect with it. Diana was my husband's mother's name.
Ethan was pretty much one of the first boys names we both thought of and really liked and Daniel is his dad's name.

A suggestion for anyone considering names for their baby is Baby's Named a Bad Bad Thing: http://www.notwithoutmyhandbag.com/babynames/

Awesomely hilarious website with examples of real-life names sure to induce embarassment or emotional scarring on the children unlucky enough to carry them. The forums are a fabulous resource for good, SANE baby names.
