    well as it says on the tin, we just cant decide on any a name for our girl,

    the list is pretty much the same as it has been for monthsand going off them all by the day

    any addition to it be great :)

    Raina
    Kayla
    Carly
    Shea
    Erin
    Lauren
    Danielle
    Nicole
    Robyn
    Alex

    At the minute Kayla is my fav but dont like the idea of being Kay for short, so any ideas of a nickname for Kayla be great too

    thanks hun we both love it but just worry about people calling her kay which we both detest, although i know a lot of it will come down to what we call her and what she decided to be called her self when shes older

    Names are soooo hard

    I like Lauren the best from your list. I've looked after a few Lauren's over the years and they've all been lovely pretty little things! :) x

    I like them all, Lauren is probably my favourite and Shea my least favourite, I'm not sure on any other way of shortening kayla other than Kay which I'm not really a fan of x

    You have to go with what you and oh think best, everyone has different opinions, when I think of Shea, I think of Shea butter!

    I love Carly but then I'm biased!!!

    Love Kayla too, but can't think of any shortenings. We liked Arthur but hated the shortenings so we crossed it off the list!

    What about Sharnie ? (again not sure if that's spelt correctly)

    My friends grown up daughter is called Kayla, her actual full name is Michalea (not sure on spelling of that)
    So has always been shortened to Kayla, and never made it down to Kay because already shortened.

    I love Robyn, it was my second childs girls name , but didn't use it myself as I had a boy! So he's Toby Robin ,(so we did use it!).

    What about Rowan for a girl ? Or Bronte or Bronwen, or Dante? or Darcy, or Steffi or Merrick ?

    Sorry some of my choices are more unusual
