    I think Dear is beautiful by itself! I think Dirce's connotation might be a bit too negative, where Dear is so much sweeter. Xenia Dear and Acacia Dear are so pretty!
    I have completely random and eclectic taste in everything, including names.

    Wow Indira! My grandmother and the first female Indian prime minister! I kind of love it, but I don't have any special ties to India, so I'm not sure.
    Anyone else have any Dear-like name ideas?

    Thanks GGX! Dear is definitely still on the table, just wanting to consider other options.

    Yeah I figured Indira might be a long shot - I do think it's pretty though and I think since she was famous it could work on a non Indian? The Sanskrit meaning of beauty if a culturally universal one.

    I did a NB supersearch for girls names containing "dir" since that seems like it would be more frequent than "dear". You can run the same for all - there were 16 - but the two that were best to my ear:

    Adira - Hebrew - strong.
    Sadira - Persian - lotus tree.

    Thanks Jesba. Not having much luck with the supersearch. I will put Indira on my long list for further consideration. I'm intrigued by the Irish name Dearbhla ("duhr-vlah") though it's kind of crazy.
