Girls' Names

For those of you who are expecting a baby girl or recently had a baby girl, did you find it difficult to pick a decent name for your baby? Any name you pick seems to sound like a stripper name. Names like Britney, Brianna, Pamela, Kylie, Tori, or Victoria all sound like a girl head-lining at the local strip bar . If you do find a name that does not sound like a stripper name, then it seems that the name sounds like one's great aunt. I would picture a very old aunt rocking in her rocking chair when given the name Agatha, Agnus, Bertha, or Helga. So stripper name or great aunt, what name are you leaning towards? Or maybe we should follow the Chinese and make up names like Samanfar or Smacker!
