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:
From all the posts so far these are the ones I like the most:
I'm really loving the name Ottilie right now, but struggling with sibling names to match. What would you call a sister to Ottilie?
I voted for Antonia August Rose. Personally I love alliteration and double middle names, so I think this is a solid choice.
I'm engaged and will be married this fall, but we're not doing an engagement ring. It's not something I want and it's definitely something that neither of us want to spend money on so we're skipping...
Some ideas that might work for you:
Caroline : Caro, Lena, Ro
Arabella : Aria, Bella
Olivia : Livia, Liv, Ollie
Charlotte : Lottie, Charlie
Rosalie : Rose, Rosie, Ro, Lia
Juliet : Julia,...
It's actually quite funny to see this, because looking at the list I see pretty much all my boy and girl names. I guess I have the same taste as you. :)
My additions would be:

Personally I think it depends how many kids you plan on having. 2 or 3 names starting with the same letter can work, but more than that I think risks veering towards Duggar territory.
