Any other suggestions?
Thanks for the help so far. I'm having trouble pinning down my own style to be honest so I'm open to considering all sorts of options. I am drawn to nature names as well as more exotic/international...
I'm really loving the name Freja/Freya at the moment, however still undecided on the spelling. I'm leaning towards Freya at the moment.
Any middle name suggestions?
Thanks for any help!
My opinion about K vs. C seems to vary tremendously. I prefer Catherine to Katherine, but Kate to Cate. I might just leave the spelling decision up to my husband since I can't seem to decide. My...
We'd be raising them with English, German, Indonesian and Chinese.
To be completely honest, I was pronouncing them the same way - like Kye-uh, mainly because I see the "ai" combination to be...
I love the spelling Caia, but I feel like in German Kaia is probably more intuitive to spell. It just feels a bit too trendy for my taste though.
I'm finding myself really drawn to the name Caia at the moment. I love that it's short and strong. I also think it's a nice name that would work well in a variety of language and places. This last...
Cosima is one of my favorite girls names and I am really struggling to come up with boys names to match.
A few I like:
I'm probably biased, because I hate my names, but I definitely wouldn't do this. I have a super popular gir's name as first name and a super popular boy's name for a middle name. I seriously wonder...
What about Xanthe? It starts with an "x", but the pronunciation with with a "z". Along that same line, I also really like Xenia.
For other Z names I really like: Zola, Zora and Zelda

I am having the hardest time with this issue right now. I need a name that works primarily in German and English, but also makes at least some sense in Malay and Chinese as well. There are so many...
I love Luna.
A few of these I had actually never considered before. I really love:
Cosima Colette - was unsure about the allieration, but I think it flows beautifully
Cosima Rose - super popular...
I'm in need of some good middle name suggestions. So far I have:
Personally I love the name, but mainly because of language issues I prefer Ottilia "O-till-ia". It's actually right at the top of my list at the moment.
Cosima is actually on my list as well and I think nature names work really well in the middle.
Combinations I love:
FYI, this isn't a name for her daughter, but for herself. It's common in Chinese speaking countries to choose an English name to be used socially and for work.
Honestly, when I first read this I thought you had misspelled Alexandra. If you like the name, but think it's too common or boring what about Alexandria or Alessandra?
Ottilia is a variation on Ottilie. I just prefer that spelling and pronunciation better.
I would pronounce Hana as Hah-nah.
If I'm being completely honest, I've never heard of...
I would love some comments on my short list of girl names. Any other names in a similar style that I've missed?
Thanks for the input. I really do like Klaas. At this point I'm probably leaning towards using it as a middle name rather than a first.
My husband is German and has a rather old man name himself...
I find myself loving the name Klaus at the moment, but I'm not sure how wearable it is on a little boy today. Or is it better to use Klaus as a nickname for Nicholas.
We are a bi-lingual family...
I'm also originally from the South and grew up with the tradition, but at least in my family it manifested mainly for girls to carry a maiden name as their middle name, although there are a couple...
Andrew doesn't work for a girl at all. The name is all boy. Andy and Drew are cute nicknames, but you don't need to use Andrew to get to them.
So many great names. Thanks again!
I think I will add the following names to my first name shortlist:
And for middles:
