Going on from the boy thread. I'm 14 weeks so don't know what I'm having yet but I have the feeling its a girl. Only problem is we have a boys list a mile long but only some ok girls names.

I love Teddy, Tyger, Wolf, Fox, Dexter etc for boys but can't seem to find any names like this for girls. Any ideas?

I think Teddy would be lovely for a little girl wink

I love Tiger / Tyger for a girl.

Coolest name I've heard for a little girl recently is Phaedra (pn. Fay-dra)

Nooo! Why saddle them with such tragic stories? Didn't phaedra kill herself because her stepson wouldn't sleep with her?

Tyger is one of the few that ends up on both lists (if i write them) but OH isn't so sure. Love the name Kitty but hate cats so thats off.
Any name i'm not sure of the origin of will be researched to make sure we don't name our kid after someone who wants to sleep with members of their family. ;)
Ahh this is so hard!!

Arrietty. Just is.

I used to love Hero until that plasticky sleb woman used it. Ditto Harper and Scout

Eek! I had no idea about the origin of Phaedra LadyAlys

Since you like Tyger for a girl but your OH doesn't, what about Tigerlily? You could call her Tiger, but if she turns out to be more reserved she could be Lily or Tilly.

Snowflake, Glacier, Freesia, Minus Five - cool enough for you?

People are soooo conventional in their name choices, arent't they? grin

My DD's friend is called Biba - I think that's quite cool.

Dana (for men originally, now as much a girl's name)
Cleo
Kira
Parker and Sydney are used for girls in the US now

Doesn't that make Kelvin the coolest name for a boy?
