Baby girls are wonderful, precious gifts (boys are too!) and there is no shortage of great names for them. The hardest part? Narrowing it down ... oh, and the pressure of everyone wanting to know what the name will be.
Seriously when you are pregnant, everyone and their sister wants to know what you are going to name the baby. But don't worry -- you don't have to make a firm decision until delivery. In the meantime, it's a great idea to figure out what names you like and narrow it down. Who knows, you might just find exactly what you are looking for too.
Freaked out about naming your baby girl? Don't be. You will find a name that fits perfectly.
Here are a few more great places to turn for inspiration.
Every year, the United States Social Security Administration puts out a list of the Top 100 names for boys and girls. The list is based on babies born and registered with the SSA in the previous year. Why is the list a good place to look for names? There is something to be said for strength in numbers. With thousands and thousands and thousands of names being used every year, there is a reason why these particular names make it in the Top 100. In fact, many are beloved classics.
Looking for something just a little different? Perhaps a baby name that sounds like a Top 100 name, but with a fun twist? Choosing a baby name with a unique spelling can achieve just that. So, turn your Carol into Caryl or Erin into Aeryn.
