I definately have the same problem. I have had a girls name picked out for years, but had never really told anyone. I was incredibly disappointed two years ago when a good friend chose that name for her daughter. When i said to her "no, that was what I want to call my daughter if I have one" she said "what's stopping you, you can use it too".
Now I am pregnant, I still want to use the name, but also have about 5 other girls names I really like. They came to me easily. But I just cannot find a boy's name. There are a few I like, but have been used by close family members, so i won't use the same name. I have looked at hundreds of websites with names, but nothing jumps out at me. The only couple I have in mind I am not happy with and would be settling for something i didn't want, just because I couldn't find anything better. Fortunately I still have 25wks to find one.
I can tell you of the girls names I really like, but they are not uncommon, so you have probably come across them numerous times and decided against them
