    A girls name

    Which girls name sounds the best?

    No, I'm not going to be a father. My step-sister had a baby girl and that got me thinking about names. I thought of a few I definitely like. Now I'm thinking I might write a short story with a girl of ___________ name. Can you help?

    If you've read a few books you might realize where a few of the ideas for names came from, actually.

    Of the ones you listed, I like Adrien best.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    Oh, and I didn't get "Laila" from DP's Laila. xD

    From the list of names above, it will have to be Laila, hands down.

    I like Laila. I knew a girl with that name when I was in grade school. She was very smart. It's Persian I think.

    No, it's Semite.
    It means "night".

    Interesting. The girl I knew was anything but dark haired. She had brown eyes and the blondest of hair.

    Ok what ever name you go with from that list, "Adrian" will condemn her to a life of bad Silvester Stallone impersonations.

    I like Laila...brings a feeling of calm and flowing beauty.

    Re: A girls name

    Laila is by far my favorite among the choices. I'm also partial to Elise, don't know the origin of the name, but being a musician and loving classical music, if I have a daughter I would name her Elise in tribute to Beethoven's Fur Elise.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
