DH and I have agreed on a boy name (Max Phillip), but we're having a hard time with a girl name. For a long time it was Emma, then we thought that was too popular, so we changed it to Emily. THEN, there was that big deal about Emma taking over the #1 spot from Emily. We had no idea Emily was that popular! So anyway, we still like those names, but we're just not sure if we want a name that popular.
One alternative that we've thought of is Emerson, Emmy for short. DH is not 100% sold on it though. I think it's a little too out of the ordinary for him. He likes classic names. It doesn't have to be an E name or anything, those just happen to be ones that we like. Abby is also in the running.
What else would be a good alternative to those very popular girl names? Thanks!
