Still don't know how to post properly in here!! I wrote out a whole post and all looked fine til I pressed post then it seemed to dissappear.
I wanted advice on these names I have picked so far for my daughter who is due early august.
Middle and last name - Rebecca Jellanek
She has an older sister from her father called Charlie so even though Zahlie is my top choice should I not? I am not with her father and he wants nothing to do with us and his ex has made it clear that she doesn't count my daughter as charlies sister. WWYD??

If Zahlie is your pick then that is what I would name her, it doesn't sound like Charlie is going to be a huge part of her life

Zahlie - ok what about Zahlia ok
Chloe - love it
Hollie - nice - prefer Holly
Piper - nms
Jasmine - nice
Caitlyn = nice

It took me three tries of saying it to realize what the Zahlie/Charlie thing is, lol, they don't rhyme in my accent.
Zahlie - Zahra/Zara/Zahara would be my substitute.
Chloe - Cute.
Hollie - Nice, prefer Holly though. Molly is nice too.
Piper - NMS
Jasmine - I prefer Jessamine because it kills the "Jazz" nickname, but Jasmine isn't really bad.
Caitlyn - Caitlin looks better spelt this way IMO. I don't think the y adds anything.
If Zahlie was Zahra, my top three choices would be Zahra, Holly, Caitlin.

Chloe and Holly are my favourites from your list.
I wouldn't pick Zahlie, it sounds too close to Charlie. What about Tahlia?

I think it sounds too close to Charlie, sorry OP.
I LOVE Chloe

Zahli would have been my first pick but I don't know I could do it. Charlie's still her half sister.
Love Holly, Jasmine and Caitlyn from the list

I would go for Jasmine or Holly. I think even if your daughter's father isn't going to be part of your daughter's life, there is still some chance that the two girls might want to get to know each other and be close at some point, so I would probably avoid Zahlie.

Kate Hudson, 22, was on a dream European holiday with friends. She didn't realise she was about to become a mum.
Maybe the mum I saw in that waiting room, seemingly disconnected from her baby, doesn’t have the support she needs.
