    We need a girls name

    Hi
    We are having a girl and having trouble with choosing names.
    Here is what we like so far: Still not 100% sure though.

    Ella
    Chloe
    Belle

    Ella and Chloe have been so popular - what are peoples thoughts on Belle?
    We prefer short names. If anyone could suggest some that would be great.



    My husband and I cant agree on a name.

    My DD's name is 8 letters long and yet strange enough i'm actually a huge fan of short names ... (happened to come across her names years ago & just loved it).

    My friend has a Chloe whom is 7 now and there are several Chloe's in her school so don't know if that will be so in a few years to come ... so, i'm going to go with BELLE (though i second Arimeh & i too prefer BELLA)

    Other fav short names;

    Mia
    Tess
    Aria
    Elise
    Hope
    Maya
    Rian
    Kya

    Hi thank you for your suggestions and input . Will see what DH thinks.

    I too prefer Bella to Belle but DH is not too sure on it. I didnt think he would be so fussy. I expected to be able to suggest a name that i loved and him to say ok. Although he doesn't make any suggestions.

    What are your thoughts on the name Alexis?

    Do you think its normal be put off a name due to its popularity at this time?

    I have a girlfriend whose DD is named Kyanna and she gets bella as her nick name..I love both.

    I LOooooooove Mia as a name....Fingers are crossed for a pink one next time.

    I also like Lyla, Eva, Ava, Ruby...It's a bit longer but DH likes Willow...I'm warming to it.

    Melly - thanks, i do love the name Ella, DH prefers it to any i have suggested. Iseem to be seeing it alot ( maybe this is because i am aware of it)

    Bronzdbebe - Mia is so cute, we cant use this as its already in the family. I too like Lyla, Eva and Ava but DH is fussy (already suggested these). Ruby will be the middle name (after DH grandma) i would love Ruby as a first name but DH prefer as middle.
    Willow is a nice name i like Harlow too.

    Another thought...

    If you wanted a formalish First name and a nickname maybe another option for Alexis could be Alexandra and then you could have Ali or Alex for short?

    I also like the name Peyton....Maybe I'm a little addicted to One Tree Hill LOL!!

    Charlotte you get Charlie or Lotte, Scarlette is pretty too.

    Abigal..Abbey...

    Amelia is pretty too.

    Maddison or Madeleine....Madi is cute.

    My Dh was hard to get a yes out of too, I've always loved the name Zane and was scared to tell him incase he crushed my fave name...Luckily he loved it and we now have a Zane. Heaven help me if he hated it, DS would probably still be nameless LOL.

    I think Alexandra a bit too formal :-)

    I like Charlotte but i dont love it enough, Matilda is nice.

    You are so luck y DH loved your fave name

    Thank you for your thoughts - i like Belle but wonder what people would think of it. DH is ok with it allthough he prefers Ella and i do like it but the fact its so common puts me off. My mum isn't so keen on Ella ( which should not matter)
