    Maya or ?? Help with Indian-American names

    So we are having a baby girl soon, already have one daughter - Mira. I want to name the 2nd one Maya but my husband thinks it is too cutesy to have a mira and maya and he wants a longer name for the new baby. The baby will be half Indian so I would like something Indian but that is easy to pronounce but also not too common. I am more into pretty sounds than meanings of names. Any ideas?? Today we thought maybe Kareena/Carina but I am not sure I love it. Thanks!

    I definitely agree that Mira and Mya are too similar. I like Carina, and also Corina. I don't know any Indian-American names off the top of my head, but good luck!

    Amaya might be a nice compromise.

    Soraya
    Lalita
    Sitara
    Riya
    Nisha


    I think these all translate well into English.

    Most of these are the names of Indian girls I go to school with and I think most translate into English really well. All are definitely Indian
