I voted for Elizabeth, that's my favorite name from your list. I also like Katherine (I think Kate or Katie would be a cute nickname), Sara, Rachel and Margaret (Maggie). Abigail is cute too but seems to be terribly popular right now.

I voted for Maggie ~ although I have to say that it's one of the top 5 on our list for new baby girl's name! :)

My mother-in-law is named Margaret and we thought Maggie would be a good way to name the baby after her without naming her Margaret. If we pick it, her name would be Maggie...even on her birth certificate. I'm also thinking of using Danielle...but can't think of a good middle name. Any ideas?

Other...


Ari is my suggestion.

Beautiful and unique name.

Pronounced Ar-ee

I suggest Emma

Comes from emmanuel means God with us.
God's with you in the whole way of addopting.He also is with your DD.He bounded you togheter even before you knew...
He will be with you in the future and can surround your lifes with love and joy by His spirtit.

Maybe that's why Emma will fit...
It's also a very international name, cause our DD calls Emma. We're from the Netherlands so...

Succes with finding the right name!!!

Love Miranda

I chose Elizabeth. That's my middle name, and one we're considering as a middle name for our Mei Mei. We have actually considered Kathrine as well.

If I were to adopt a baby from a different country, I'd probably keep their native name as a middle name, or something similar, to honor their heritage, and also pick a new first name. Of the popular names today, I like Lily. Lily Christopher. It has a nice sound to it. Good Luck! What an exciting time for you!

Mama Duck said...

I would say I don't dislike any of them, nice choices all! I'd do Abigail Hope, personally, out of those choices.

Kailani said...

I voted for Sara because I thought a shorter first name would go better with a long last name. Sara Christopher flows well when you say it.

I voted for Katherine. Good luck with the new arrival!

Thanks for stopping by my TT!

Lindsay said...

Oh! How exciting!!!!!
I LOVE the name Elizabeth...
my other favorite girl names are Aubree, Emma, Faith and Grace!

I am a sucker for a cute nickname... so I Love Elizabeth for Beth, Liz, Lizzy... Aubree for Bree, and Grac for Gracie!

GOOD LUCK!
I will be checking back often to get all your new news :)

Abigail and Hope are my two favorites from the list, but I voted for Hope because it's more unusual and just slightly prettier, in my opinion. They're all great names, though!

Thanks for visiting my site.

Christine said...

I voted for Rebeka. We have a family friend named Rebecca, and I've always liked that name.

Stephanie said...

I voted for Rebekah. I just named my baby Abigail. And Rebekah, Rachel, and Michele have always been in the running when we were looking for names.

Shandra said...

Cute idea. We too are adopting from China. LID 8-03-06. Thanks for visiting my blog today!

Bint Alshamsa said...

I'm very fond of the name Sophia even though I don't think you could go wrong with any of the names you've listed.

Kelly said...

I voted for Rachel, but love thought of a shorter name since your last name has alot of syllables. Sara Christopher is nice. Rachel Kelly Christopher really is nice too :O )

Sparky Duck said...

I went with Elizabeth, hmmm I soooo wonder why I would have done that???

sfp said...

I voted for Rebeka, but I'd spell it Rebecca to separate her from the hordes of Rebekas toddling around these days.

Melissa said...

What a creative Thursday Thirteen! I voted for Rebekah but Elizabeth is beautiful as well. Actually, all your potential names are wonderful. Thanks for stopping by my place. :)

Mom's Secret Life said...

I wondered where this was when I came here yesterday!

You have to understand that I have a Sarah Rebekah (age 13), a Rachel Hannah Joy (age 11), and an Abigail (age 7). Sarah and Rachel were common but not popular names when they were born and Abigail was just getting to be popular (but I named her after Abigail Adams, so I ignored the trendy thing). For the little girl we adopted, we went with an extremely uncommon Biblical name (Keziah), partly because all the rest of them were so common.

Anyway, I guess I'll go vote now...I just thought it was funny that so many of your names were ones we used.

I'm also Immax3 at Xanga, so if you see my "footprint" over there, you'll know who I am.

Racy Li said...

Wow I liked Joy, which no one else seemed to like. But then again, Joy is the name of a heroine of a current WIP I'm working on :)

tiggerprr said...

I voted for Margaret because I think Maggie Christopher has a cute ring to it. But when she becomes an adult, she could revert to her more formal name should she choose to.

Of course, when you meet her, the name you choose may or may not fit with her. I believe this to be true because my daughter's name didn't end up being the one we had decided upon before she was born and I can't see her being anyone else but Ashlyn.

clumsyraine said...

Hello! I voted for Rebekah, it's on my future daughter list also, I love it. I also like Sara(h), and Cathryn instead of Katherine. :) Thanks for the comment on my T13!

semitough said...

You have some beautiful names. I voted for Other and am suggesting Emma. We had chosen Emma for our second, but those plans were dashed when he turned out to be a boy! Good luck and thanks for stopping by my place and leaving a comment.

mominprogress said...

I love the name Abby. Of course my littlest one's name is Lorelai.

Pippajo said...

I voted for Rachel. It's pretty, feminine, and not overly used right now, 3 out of 3 for me!

Thanks for visiting my site and God bless you in your quest for adoption.

All of your choices are lovely, but Grace and Anne are my two favorite names ever . . .

I voted!

Gwen said...

I voted for Rachel, too, although I agree with the commenter who suggested using a more culturally appropriate name for your daughter. We have a lot of Elizabeths in my family and a Rebekah, so those were other names I could have picked. You might also think she's going to Emma and then meet her and realize she is totally a Jane or a Drew or something else. We thought we were going to use a nickname for our oldest daughter, instead of her given name, but it just never worked. She's a Charlotte. And I had to laugh to see that my other daughter and your dog share a name, too. Guess I can't recommend that one for your new daughter. I hope the adoption goes smoothly for you.

Lady Jane said...

I love the name Elizabeth because of Elizabeth Bennet in my favorite novel, Pride and Prejudice. It is such a classic and elegant name, with plenty of great nicknames. :)

Annie said...

I haven't voted yet but immediately Maggie caught my eye, mainly because that's the name I would love to give a future daughter.(And like another commenter, I'd use Maggie on the birth certificate).

A lot of people suggested Emma which is a gorgeous name and was actually my "girl name" for years and years. Over the past few years when it became really popular did I realize I liked Maggie more.

Another girl name I adore is Sophia/Sofia/Sophie. Probably because I associate it with my little Swedish sister I lived with for a year and she was a ball of sunshine.

Elizabeth is a beautiful name, but I think it works best as a middle name.

Thanks for pointing me to the voting :)

I'm partial to Rebekah (or Rebecca...) and I have a Maggie (not Margaret - Magdalene) and my mother is Elizabeth, so you have some wonderful names here. Whatever you pick will be exactly perfect for your family and your daughter! I'm not sure if children name themselves, or grow into their names. Either way, they always fit just right, especially when so much thought and love have gone into the choosing! Congratulations.

(My brother and his wife, in the same situation, talk about their adoption process here.)

I've always loved the name Rachel. But I like all the names, really. I love Biblical names, ol' timey names! They are timeless.

Amy Linder said...

Hi There -

I've always liked the name Audrey. That's my suggestion.

Good luck!

Amy :)

Cyndi said...

I like the name Madeline, it would have been Nathans name if he was a girl, because it means Prayerful.and tower of strength.I think if you are prayerful God will help you be the tower of strength.but anyway that's my suggestion
