Bumping my thread because I have a new question. We decided that the middle name knocked out some contenders (we didn't like how "Thea Leigh" sounded and such).
Our list as of now (to keep in mind and then see what jumps to mind when we see her):
Freya Savannah Magdalena Charlotte
My question: I know Charlotte is super popular now, and I can't figure out if I care about that. I also don't have much interaction with kids these days so it's hard for me to get a handle on just how popular it is. Any teachers/nannies/etc able to weigh in?

I'm an adult Charlotte and I'm still amazed at the boom in little Charlottes. There is one in DD's preschool class, a different one in her dance class, and I hear it a lot in public. I really like my name but I find it annoyingly common amongst little girls.
I like Freya and Magdalena a lot. Savannah is fine but give me a cheaper vibe. It's the least strong choice for me.
Sometimes I wish I could give the baby a bunch of names so I don't have to pick, ha. I also kind of wish I hadn't told my family our name ideas. No one has said anything jerky, but I worry they'll get attached to a certain name.
I know lots of little Charlotte's. It was already going up in popularity when Prince William and Princess Kate named their daughter that. I think it's ranked 9 or 10 now. But I still love it. It was my number one girls name for years but DH didn't like it ☹️
Freya and Magdalena have more of a wow factor for me, since they aren't as common. But, I think all of your name options are wonderful and you can't go wrong off that list.
When it comes to Charlotte, yes it may be popular. However, a lot of people may be using that name to get to Charlie as a nn. If you plan to use the full name, or an alternate nn like Lottie, it may end up feeling like there are less than you think. Now if you do plan on using Charlie it will probably feel even more popular since the popularity of it as a given name jumps up to #84, with all spellings combined. From 2015 births, Charlie (1554), Charlee (1121), Charley (603), Charleigh (590), Charli (557), Charly (81), Charliee (23), Charlea (23), Charlei (19), Charlye (19), Charlii (9), Charliegh (6)
lucilleaustero so what I'm hearing is to sneak it in while debating post birth so I have more of a shot Works for me!
This was my plan when my husband suddenly started rethinking our boy name about two weeks before my due date.
Didn't matter in the end as I had a little girl!
So far we have had two boys and agreed on the names. We talk out names, write a list and decide on our favorites. Sometimes we run across another name and our favorites change but as soon as both of our boys were born and we got a look at them we just knew what their name was gonna be and we both agreed, thank goodness. I do not see it working out that way if we have a girl!
