Post Help with girls names

Any suggestions would be so helpful. We do not know if we are having a boy or girl, and we have the boy's name all set: Xander Jacob Robert, but for the girl, we had Dyllan Lora-Marie. Now, it seems that Dylan, or Dillan, etc, is so popular (although for boys), that we are discouraged. I don't want her to be in a class with 3 boys that have her name. The real kicker, though is that our neighbours just got a dog and named him Dillan. Nice huh? So, we have come up with a few options: Gabriella, Kierra (rhymes with Sierra). Our last name is Pilot.

My question is: is Dyllan popular where you are, or does it just seem like it because I am looking for it, and what do you think of it as a girl's name, or do you like the other options better?

Please help, we don't want to go in unsure of a name!

Thanks so much.

Dyllan is pretty popular around here, but I have never heard it as a girls name. And it's usually spelled Dylan or Dillon. I think it's very pretty for a girl, I just have never heard it. Here are a few girl names that we considered, but DH liked Alexis best.

Hailey
Jordyn
Riley
Kyla
LeAnna

Good luck!

I love the name Gabriella. It was my second choice for girls names. I also think a three-syllable name goes well with your surname.

We were going to go with Maia for a girl.

16 more days to make your decision! Good luck!

Thanks for the help, keep it coming! As a girl's name, I have seen it twice: Drew Barrymore's character in Charlie's Angels, and a girl on Good Morning Miami has that name. So, it is out there, just not very popular.

I like Gabriella too. It's very pretty and I agree it has a nice ring with your last name.

I haven't started thinking of names yet as I am only very early pregnant (5.5 weeks) and I want to make sure everything turns out OK first before I go that next step.

Good luck with whatever name you finally choose!

For a girls name dh and I had Brea Taryn for a girl picked out. I love that name. As for the name Dylan, personally, it's not a favorite of mine, but I think it's because I've only heard it as a boys name, so everytime I try to picture the name to a face, a boys face pops into my head. If I could get over that fact, I would like the name (because I do like it as a boys name). Let us know what you decide!!

I call on day cares for a living so post any name you want and I will tell you if it is being used a lot.

There is a web site that lists the most popular names for the current year and the last few years, you might check it out.

Here in Alabama the following are like Jennifer and Jason:

Girls

Kaylee - spelled any way (Kayleigh, Kayley, Kaylea)
McKayla
McKenzie
Riley
BreAnna (also spelled many ways)
Madison
Zoe
Taylor
Savannah
Kendall
Hailey or Haley
Morgan

The old names are also making a return:
Emma
Sarah (spelled any way)
Rebecca
Emily

I also see quite a few Sophies and Sadies.

Boys
Justin
Tyler
Hunter
Riley
Dillon (spelled both ways)
Cody
Michael
Alexander and called many things including (Xander)
Brett
Brandon
Jackson

I know some of these are popular here that may not be as common as where you are but look at the most popular baby naming site.

I always wanted to name my little girl Abryanna Denise. Unfortunately, I can't have any more babies. I always wanted Abryanna and I got Denise from a friend of mine that passed on. I'm sure whatever name you pick will be beautiful. There's so many names out there I understand it's hard to choose. Good luck and take care!!
