Less than a month til my due date and haven’t settled on a name for our baby girl. I would love to hear others’ favorite names. Although I mentioned in another post about wanting to choose a name from my cultural heritage, I’m actually open to all types of names at this point. My only restriction is that we’ve decided on a middle name, and the middle/last initials will be OG, so I want to avoid any first name that will give the baby initials that spell a less than desirable word (so no names that start with D, H, L, etc.) I am really hitting a wall— and especially having a hard time finding names Darling Husband also agrees with— so all name suggestions are welcome!! Thanks in advance for your help.

I just went back and saw that you’re Greek. How about Calliope? Callie would be a cute nickname. Persephone is pretty as well, and definitely more unique.
For non-Greek names.. Penelope, Eleanor, Elena, Alexandra, Vivian, Sophia? Do you prefer names that are more “traditional,” or ones that are more trendy?
in your previous post you mentioned Antigone, nickname Andie. You could use Andrea or Amanda, and still use Andie as a nickname. Ariadne is Greek (I think) and could maybe lend itself to the “Andie” nickname as well.

Penelope is Greek – she was Odysseus’ wife. ( I was also going to suggest it but it would give the initials POG)
I like Eleanor, Elizabeth, Isabell, Catherine, Beatrice, bellatrix ) piratekitten :

Someone else already suggested my favorite, Alexandra, but I thought I’d second it. I also love Charlotte.
