Okay I know I’m getting ahead of myself cause we might not be pregnant butttt just in case.
If it’s a boy it’ll be a junior so we have that covered butttttt if it’s a girl;
I loveeeee Sophia but sooo many people are using that name and who want’s to be Sophia R in a class full of Sophia A Sophia B and Sophia Q so we love Julianna Jordan. Thoughts?
Other names we like are Stephanie and Desai (D-SIGH) but we’re open to hearing different names help us out. Even made up names are welcomed.

I love Julianna but I don’t think Jordan is the same style. Desai is an Indian last name IME, so I don’t care for it much as a little girl’s first name.

julianna is very pretty! i like it better than sophia and also appreciate the fact that it is less common.
i defintely wouldn’t do stephanie (too dated for a new baby) or desai (too different/hard to pronounce)

I like Julianna but not with Jordan.
Don’t care for Stephanie (I agree with PP, it’s too dated) or Desai. Sophia is pretty but way too overused.

I think Julianna is gorgeous. I’m not crazy about the name Jordan but I do like the alliteration.
Sophia is a nice name but just too popular right now to get my vote.

I voted for Julianna, I think that’s a lovely name. HOWEVER – I say if you really love Sophia, there’s nothing wrong with choosing it. It just depends how much you care about the popularity factor. I agree on Stephanie, though, it strikes me as a very 80s name (lots of Stephanies in our generation….kind of like Jessica or Brittany).

I like Sophie better than Sophia. But Julianna takes the cake! (I also vote no on Jordan).

I’m a Stephanie, born in the 80s… I promised I wouldn’t do that to my daughter. So, I would stay away from the Sophies.
Julianna is pretty. I agree with PPs that Jordan isn’t my favorite. Julianna Elise?

@eecuadrado: I’m loving the name Marlee right now 🙂 It’s so cute and isn’t very popular. Good luck!

Keep in mind that even with the most common name it is not all that likely that you will have that many in your class. It’s not like the old days when there were only a few names that anyone ever gave. One of my kids has a top ten name and they don’t hear themselves coming and going. So if you love Sophia, go for it. Julianna is pretty,too, though I would shorten it to Julia in your place.

For some other suggestions, since you asked for them, it sounds like you like names with a very feminine sound:
