A friend of mine choose Danica which I thought was unique until the rise to fame of Danica Patrick in auto racing.

also, Aynsley is another one a friend has used that I had not heard before.

Good luck!

Names and naming are my freakish passion/hobby/interest! I would suggest you have a look at the SSA (Social Security Administration) list of 1000 most popular names in the US- many names that you might think are unusual are actual VERY common. You can search by years and look at what was popular when you were born and compare it to the 2006 list. You can also search by state to find out what the top names are in your state. I thought my sons name was unusual. Then for 4 subsequent years, there was a boy born every year named my unusual name. That mad me kind of sad.

My poor daughter...she is so distraught over then name
She is still leaning toward Jazmine (Jazzy)...but she is also starting to like the name Sheridan. Sheridan is a pretty name and you do not hear it too often.

She has a little less than 5 weeks to go now...I don't know if to be excited and happy or completely FREAKED OUT!

Thanks again everyone! If there are anymore ideas, feel free to throw them in anytime!

I've heard quite a few:

Laketta
Tzipporah
Jadden
PomPom
Tootsie
Sweetee

...though I would not recommend any of those names :/ Imagine being called PomPom all your life

Ok, I have to weigh in...Why give your kid a u-neek (sic) name? Do you want them to be unemployed?

Why give corporate america one more reason for passing on an applicant? HR is busy. If they can't pronounce the name or they have pre conceived notions about people with kr8tive names--they could move along to the next resume.

Also, alot of these names sound like stipper monikers!

Please stick to the classics. A "different" name can be a liability in the future!

I really liked the suggestion to name her Liberty! I also like the name Arianna for a girl.

While it is true HR might initially call you back because they can pronounce your name, it is also true that you may get promoted later on faster than Jane or Sam because your name is unique and memorable
