    I didn’t even see Lanie down there, I love that! Though I prefer the spelling Laney.

    I vote for Piper off your girl’s list! And if you’d consider Finley for a boy, I’d love that!!

    Congratulations!

    Your girls list is a little masculine for my liking, but Piper is lovely and Olivia is a real beauty. Would you consider Olivia upfront? Ollie would make a nice nickname that seems to fit your style well. Charlie and Lanie are really cute though a little nicknamey, I’d like Charlotte ‘Charlie’ and Elena ‘Lanie’. I would worry that Wesley, Finley and Sawyer would be mistaken for boys on some occasions. Ryanne might be too, though Rhiannon or Rhea may be of interest to you? Some ideas of girls names with that strong feel are: Regan, Megan, Thea, Seren, Justine, Rachel, Frances ‘Frankie’, Robyn (this is a unisex name but I think less likely to be automatically assumed to be male; Robbie is a great nickname!). You might also want to consider a feminine name with a masculine nickname, such as Harriet (Harry), Maxine (Max), Stephanie (Stevie), Julia (Jude), Danielle (Dannie), Josephine (Jo) and I think you may also like Tallie (nickname for Talia maybe?).

    Of your boys, Cruz Richard is my favourite. I instantly think of the Beckhams with Cruz but that isn’t really bad thing. Richard is a strong, masculine choice. I like it in the middle. Cannon Richard would also be lovely. Cannon has a great sound and works well with Richard, my only issue is that it reminds me of the weapon. I’m not a fan of Brock.

    Good luck!

    Great suggestions by Esmeralda! They give her more options as she grows! Do you like any of them?

    I appreicate the help. I actually already have an Olivia for a first name in the family as well as Frankie and Regan.

    Brock is is the father’s middle name as well as his G’pa’s first name so we’re just trying to keep that a part of the family.

    I guess I’m not looking for a name that is very girly, I like names that can be used for boys or girls for girl names. We both have those names, my name is Kelli, spelled with a y can be used for a boy as well and his name is Jesse so I guess it’s running in the family :)

    I have seen Penolope for a girl in previous messages and I do really like that nickname, Poppy…any thoughts??

    I’ve also been thinking about the name Paisley, a little more feminine.

    I didn’t realise that Brock is a family name for you – I am big on family names myself so can see why you would want to use it. :-)

    In regards to your girl choices, I don’t think the name would need to be super frilly and girly, but it might be beneficial to have a name that is clearly a girls name, or a known unisex name, to avoid confusion in later life.It also gives your daughter more options for when she is older. :-) I can see why overly girly choices might not appeal though. Penelope and Paisley are both great in that they are clearly feminine but also strong and not too frilly. Penelope is my personal favourite of the two and Poppy is a great nickname (you could also use Penny or Nell). Penelope Charlotte comes to mind as a potential combo. You might also like the name Imogen. Again, I think it fits the ‘feminine but strong and not too frilly’ style that you’re looking for. Do you have any family names you wish to use for a girl?

    Ooo I think Penelope (Poppy, Penny, Nell, Nellie) & Paisley are my new favorites on your list over Piper!

    I really adore Penelope!! And Lanie’s super pretty as well, those would be my top picks of your names. Most of your other girls names are WAY to masculine for me, but I really don’t like boys names on girls in general. Piper’s really cute too, and I’ve heard Paisley a lot recently and it’s really growing on me. And I adore Charlotte, which could easily have Charlie as a nickname.
    I like the idea of a name that’s not frilly and girly, but also obviously a girl so your daughter won’t be constantly confused for a boy when people hear the name.

    What about Paige, Teagan, Bailey, Riley, Skylar, Sierra, Harper, Sydney, Phoebe, Morgan?

    I really like Brock, too, what a great family name! Not crazy about either Cruz or Cannon, though, but if you’d consider some of your “girls” names for a boy, they’d make great names! Wesley or Finley on a boy would be fantastic, and I think either’d go pretty well with both Richard and Brock as a middle name. Would you consider Brock as a first name?

    What about Chase, Camden, Cole, Beau, Hunter, Cameron, Landon, Ryker, Colton, Braxton, Parker, Ashton, Grayson, Trent, Axel?

    I would definitely choose Penelope over any of your other girl name picks! Penelope is one of the most versatile names out there, because it has a wide variety of nickname options. Penelope nicknamed Poppy is the clear winner!
