    Girls names ending in -a

    Do you know of any interesting and unique girls names that end in -a? All I have found is Arabella and Raphaela. I think that he former is too frilly, but I love the latter. Any ideas, fellow berries?

    *sidenote: do you prefer names ending in -a or -ie/y?

    There are so, so many. Have you tried using Nameberry's super search function? Are you really looking just for unusual ending in -a, or in -ella/-ela (since both Arabella and Raphaela do).

    I prefer -a names over -ie/-y etc names usually, although I like quite a few of those too.

    Eliska/Eliza
    Ella
    Emilia
    Evelina
    Fiona
    Gemma
    Giovanna
    Gracja (Polish form of Grace, said GRAHS-yah)
    Hannah
    Helena
    Isabella
    Isla
    Josefina
    Juliana/Julia
    Julietta
    Kaia
    Leila
    Lilia/Liliana
    Lola (prefer this as a nn, though)
    Luella/Luna/Lucia/Luciana (and sort of Lucinda)
    Lyra
    Magdalena/Madelina/Madelaina/Magda
    Matilda
    Maria
    Maya
    Malia
    Merida
    Mia
    Morgana
    Nadia
    Norah
    Ophelia
    Octavia
    Olivia (OLIVIA!)
    Oksana
    Portia
    Sabina
    Serena
    Seraphina
    Shoshana
    Sophia/Sofia (although I think I might prefer Sophie right now)
    Sybella
    Tabitha
    Tessa (although I prefer just Tess)
    Ursula
    Valeria/Valentina/Valencia
    Vienna/Verona
    Viviana
    Violetta
    Willa
    Yasmina
    Zara (Zara!)
    Zenobia
    Zinnia
    Zuzanna (athough I think most will prefer Susannah)

    I think it depends--I don't like the -ie/-y endings so much, but I do tend to prefer the non-"A" endings. Like Tess to Tessa and Isabelle to Isabella and Arianne to Ariana and Charlotte/Caroline to Carlotta/Carolina and Violet to Violetta, etc. I chalk it up to my love of French culture. Then again, I prefer Arabella to Arabelle and Sylvia to Sylvie, but I prefer Annabelle and Isabelle to Annabella and Isabella, I guess it just depends on the name. I think I could probably go about half and half.

    Good luck!

    Oh, this post makes me so sad because i LOVE names that end in -a, but my SO last name starts with "a", so they are all out! *sigh* ashthedreamer's list was pretty thorough... Alessandra is a recent favorite of mine...
