Name suggestions needed!

I am about 24 weeks pregnant and feeling good.  This little girl seems to be pretty similar in-utero as her big sis.  She's not much of a mover, and she is lying diagonally across my belly.  To quote my doctor, "you have a lopsided baby!"  She's about the size of an ear of corn, and she weighs over 1 pound by now.  Scott's been able to feel her move for a few weeks now, which has been fun.  When I read books with Sienna before bedtime, she likes to snuggle up next to me and rest her hand on 'little sister'.  It's pretty stinkin' cute.  I am so excited for these girls to have each other as sisters!  I know we're in for lots of emotional times around our household in the future, but I also know the sweet, sweet blessing of a sister can outweigh all those trying times.
So, we've been brainstorming names for our second girlie, and I thought I'd see if any of you have suggestions!  Here are some things we're looking for in a first name... uncommon but not too weird, not made-up sounding, similar feeling/genre as Sienna, and something that works with our last name.  We have a few contenders, but we're open to other ideas!  We will be sharing the name once we decide!

I don't have any suggestions YET for a first name, but a couple of middle name suggestions:

Knox
Loren (Dave's middle name)

I'm sure she'll have a name that fits her perfectly. How could Sienna NOT be named Sienna?

You know what I LOVE! but I'll mention it again anyways...ha!
Linley!!!! You could also spell it Linlee.
I love Lyla, Chole, Adelyn, Shelby, Corah and Norah (I think you mentioned this one right?...well, I LOBE IT:) Alot:)
Hope these help! As I think of more I'll text ya:) ha!

Great ideas! Yes, Linley & Norah were on our list already. Love the idea of using Loren, too. Keep 'em coming!

How about Shayla, Shanna, Solana (goes with Alaina!), and don't forget Minnie Opal! How about Dorothy since you are thinking of moving to Kansas? My Mom's nickname was Dotty!!! Just trying to be helpful:)

I love Linley and Cora! So pretty!!

Aunt Karla said...

How about Sonora(h)!? Goes with Sienna, you could call her Nora(h) for short?

I recently ran across the name Elora. It woudln't work with Loren as a middle name, but it works with others. :-) I have noticed a common theme with the names ending in "ra(h)." She should have Karla's middle name or Grandma's or your mom's first name...

Krista said...

Love the ideas! Any other ideas for a first name that ends in an a or ah? We are narrowing in on a fav... :)

Okay so I am a little late on the train...I was going to suggest Jade or Jadyn/Jaden. But, I see that you are looking for a or ah endings. I also really like the Selah. But as everyone already said, whatever name you pick will be amazing and perfect for little baby girl! Love you!

Sara - Jade was on my original list because it is a color like Sienna! Scott had a negative reference to the name, so it got scratched. :(

Amy - Love the beautiful, timeless names. Think that is where we are leaning!!!
