Oh I'm jealous of you ladies who have chosen!
We have two names, Liddy but I would prefer Lydia, dh doesnt like Lydia only Liddy. And then Jenna is our second pick but I am not keen on the Nn Jen. So we are still stuck.

Could be a bit too nicknamish with possibly a hint of stripper in there somewhere as well.

My little one is going to be Violet  happy.gif . Just have to choose a middle name!

Lexie sounds adorable, but it does sound a little like a nickname like PP said. What does your husband think of calling her Alexis or Alexandra and then name her Lexie for short?

My other favourites for girls are:

We decided on lexie it's a family name and it's short given my last name is 11 letters long I didn't want an overly long first name plus I still need to think up a middle name my 3 boys all have 2 middle names and now they are at school I regret this decision while filling out paperwork as I am always running out of space. I chose not to go with Alexis or Alexandra because these would get shortened to Alex which to me is boyish ,saying that she I'll probably get lex original.gif . I really like violet and aubree or Audrey so pretty
