Agatha Daisy is cute but to the point. Names that I think are similar in feel and sound are...
Though I'm not sure how well it "goes" with Amelia, Noor/Nora is my favorite from your list. Jordana also stands out. As I'm woefully ignorant of what names also work in Dutch, here is a list that...
Charlotte was fairly popular before Princess Charlotte was born (and unless you live in the UK I don't see it being an issue). If you could think of an alternative middle name for Charlotte, I think...
Definitely not awful; I've heard worse. Yeah it could be better in terms of flow, but I assure you that the majority of the populace either won't notice or won't be bothered. If you love the name,...
Stylistically, Sienna is very different from both Aria and Ellinor. As a pair, I like Aria and Ellinor better. Do you know what middle name you would use? Also, do you not care for a nickname at all,...
Between Romney and Romilly, I'd pick Romilly in a heartbeat (as an American, I can't divorce the name from unpleasant politics).
Romilly used to be one of my favorite names, though I probably...
I prefer Arjun. The way Arjun Kamat sounds is much more distinct that Kian Kamat.
Poll: Cosima or Beatrix?
Hello! I've been working on my girls list again, and am trying to decide which name I like more. Though I have a rather long list that needs work, at the moment I'm working on two current faves,...

Is your female character from Portugal, or is she just of Portuguese decent? It makes a difference when choosing a name. I'm of mostly Portuguese decent, but my name is Greek. Even my grandparents,...

Any more suggestions would be welcome.

I think Zara on it's own fits the best.

I ended up going with Sabina Metzger. Thanks for the suggestions!
Thanks for the recent posts, but as this thread is over two years old, I'm going to shut it down. Thanks guys!
I finished "The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle" in the beginning of the month, and have since read "Push" by Sapphire (it's a really short read- it took me about 2 hours tops).
I've gone on a book ordering...
What's Rosalind's ethnic background? She could be from the US or the UK, but I wouldn't be able to give you an accurate surname without knowing if she's Irish, French, whatever.
