We are having the toughest time agreeing on girls names. I had my heart set on Sadie, but he just couldn’t get there. There are other names he likes that I won’t consider either. The poll has the names we agree upon and I’m interested in opinions. There is definitely at least one SUPER popular name which we are not thrilled about, but it’s not a deal breaker either. I’m curious to hear people’s thoughts and appreciate the votes/comments.

Just realized I posted this in the wrong spot. Can someone move to “Nesting” please? 🙂

Of the choices, Paige is the only one that I really like.

I love the name Tessa! My roommate in grad school was named Tessa (we’re still friends today) and I think the name is lovely. It probably doesn’t hurt that she’s a lovely person as well!
Tessa also has some cute nicknames – we always called her Tess but sometimes Tessie as well.
The other names are ok – none of them really grab me but I don’t hate them either.

I love the name Abigail. One thing you have to think about are nicknames which she will inevitably be called. Do you like Abbie or Gail? If not this may not be a good choice. My Mother wanted to call me another name but she detested the nickname it began and that was enough to persuade her to change it.

I’m biased… my name is Cara 🙂

Cara is the Irish word for “friend” and I think it’s such a pretty name, so I voted for it. Tessa is v. sweet though too.

I voted for Paige, but I like Tessa and Abigail as well. Cara is the only one I’m ‘eh’ about.

I think Cara is my fave..it reminds me of something sweet… i know only 1 other person (Kara) with that name and shes lovely.
Tessa is my 2nd fave.. but im not to into the popular names… Paige is SO popular right now and abigail is cute, but i live in the 2nd biggest amish area and thats a popular name for them as well

Abigail is my favorite.
I really want to like the name Paige, but I just don’t.
Tessa sounds like a nickname to me, like the real name should be Theodora or something.
Cara, similar to Tessa, like it should be Caroline or Caralyn.
If you want a bit quirky what about Cora (Corah, Kora, Coral), Gracey (Gracie), Lindy (Libby), Mazy, Livia, Ruby, Tora.
