Right now names on our list are:


We both love Olivia but when it came out #1 in my area for 2009 it made me think twice, I really don't know if I can do a name THAT popular. My hubby doesn't care that's it's so popular but he's a Michael....

We both like Bianca.
He doesn't mind Rachel but thinks it might be a bit boring.
Jillian/Gillian we really like but if we had a boy after it would go very good with our boy name (Jack) so we may have to wait to use this one as the 2nd child if it's a girl or would it be a big deal to have a Jack and Jill?
Danielle and Gabrielle are both not bad, just think we may like the others a little better.

So thoughts?

Bianca and Jillian get my vote. What about Francesca or Gwendolyn?

Olivia - I would avoid Olivia if popularity is an issue for you.
Bianca - I have a bad association with this one. However it is pretty and there aren't any popularity issues.
Rachel - I agree with your husband. I have always found Rachel to be a bit boring.
Jillian/Gillian - If you are adamant about using Jack for a future son I wouldn't do Jillian.
Danielle - It's dated and like Rachel a bit boring for my tastes. I prefer Daniella.
Gabrielle - I don't mind Gabrielle but I really dislike the nn Gabby. Have you thought of potential nicknames?

Olivia- It's pretty, but if you don't want a popular name, the you should avoid Olivia. Octavia is an alternative, though it is a bit out there...

Bianca- Very pretty, I like this one a lot.

Rachel- I like Rachel, but if your hubby feels it's boring, why not try Rebecca. It's still Biblical, it starts with an R, and it's less common. I like Rhiannon too.

Jillian/Gillian- I'm not crazy about this one, and if you're set on Jack, you probably shouldn't use it.

Danielle- I wouldn't use it because of someone I know with this name who I don't like, but it's a pretty enough name. I also like Daniella.

Gabrielle- Love this one. If you don't like Gabby for a NN, Bree/Bria and Elle/Ella are pretty alternatives.

Good Luck! :unsure:
