I had my baby girl name all picked out, but we just found out we’re having a boy (yay, the family name lives on!) and am struggling. For the most part, I like names that people recognize as names, but aren’t necessarily at the top of the popularity lists. Here are a few that I think are contenders. I’d love to hear thoughts on them since I haven’t really settled and can’t seem to find one that I’m in love with!

I’ve always loved the name Elliot! One of my personal top picks. I actually like the name Cyrus too, I’ve never heard it before but I don’t think it’s too out there. Unfortunately Lance and Preston are names I happen to associate with people I’m not too fond of. But yay I’m glad Elliot is on someone else’s name list as well!

Another vote for Elliot! It’s cute, but a strong name too.

Gah, I don’t like Elliot. Go for Preston. It sounds a little more modern without invoking the eight-classmate syndrome

I like Elliot, its very classic and friendly!

Cyrus is not the best IMO because of the twerking bearer of that name.

Out of the four, I like Elliot. Preston is too “fad” for me, Cyrus just makes me think of Billy Ray and Miley and Lance sounds like that kid who smells like pee all the time.

Another vote for Elliot! I agree that Preston may be too trendy, Cyrus also reminds me of Miley Cyrus while Lance reminds me of Lance Armstrong. Also, I think Elliot is a lovely name.

I feel like I have seen a lot of baby Elliott’s lately (I work in a pediatric office). I like Preston

Elliot is a great name! Preston sounds really snooty/wanna-be-wealthy to me (sorry bees who have kids with that name!), Cyrus reminds me of Miley as well, and Lance just isn’t a preference of mine.
