Need help thinking of a girl name
We just found out we're having a little girl! She is our first baby! I was wondering if you ladies could give us some ideas that you think would be a cute name for a little Greek Italian baby. I'm petite (5'1, 118) and my husband is slender as well (5'7 140), so we're guessing she will be small too. Both hubby and I have dark hair, hazel eyes (hubby has blue/grey) and fair skin. We try to eat healthy and incorportate exercise into our daily routine. We're both very shy in public and too out spoken with close friends and family. I'm a math teacher and hubby is an engineer so we have a little nerdiness in us. I am orginally an art major though and love style and organization! So that's a little about the parents. Names we thought of so far are Ava, Emily and Zoey -- but their popularity kind of put us off and I'm a little unsure whether I really like Zoey. Maybe Marina? Could anyone else pick out names that you think would be fitting for our little girl? Thanks so much!

Congratulations! I immediately thought of Eleni Giovanna on my list--it's probably not what you're looking for, but it struck me as perfect for a little Greek-Italian baby girl! And I think Eleni is very sweet and demure.
I really like Ava, Emily, and Zoey from what you've already considered, what about:

Well first of all CONGRATULATIONS!
Out of your suggestions I dislike Zoey, like Ava but it is getting really popular (I don't know if you are bothered about that) LOVE Emily.
Suggestions About Emily:
1.Just use it. It is a lovely name but it depends on your felings on popularity.
2. Use an alternative to Emily such as
-Eimear (prn ee-mer its irish)
3. Use the greek version of Emily which is Aimilios although I can't really see that being your style.
4. To make it slightly more unique spell it Emilie which I actually prefer and is the French version.
Suggestions for Ava:
