I'm due with my first baby, a girl, on June 1st & I haven't been able to find a name I like yet. Despite the fact that she could arrive any time now, I've really only started thinking about names in the past few days. I've been having a really horrible time of it these past 9 months so names haven't really been on my mind till now. You see, the very day I found out I was pregnant was also the day I lost my husband to a freak heart attack (he was only 30 and in seemingly great health. I'm still in shock). We had been trying to conceive for 6 months, but everything happened so fast that he was gone before I ever got to tell him about the baby.
We were always both a little superstitious & so had decided not to discuss baby names until I was pregnant for fear of jinxing ourselves. Sadly this means that I have no idea at all what kind of names he would have liked.
If this baby had been a boy I wouldn't be having this problem as I would have named him after his father. Since it's a girl though, I've been thinking that a nice way to honor my husbands memory would be to give her the same initials as her daddy. My husbands name was Phillip Gregory & our last name is Moore. I think I've decided on Genevieve as the G middle name, but for the life of me I can't think of a girls name that starts with the letter P that I like at all.
P names that are out because I just don't like them:
I'm having lots of trouble even finding more P names than this! Please help, any & all suggestions welcome!
I think the name Philippa would be an excellent choice. It's a name I love already, and in this case it seems like the perfect way to honor her father Phillip. It goes beautifully with Moore and with Genevieve: Philippa Genevieve Moore. It has cute nicknames, too: Pip and Pippa.
Other P names to consider:
But I lean strongly toward Philippa.
