    K names for a little girl

    I'm doing a Beauty and the Beast retelling, and I've got this little character I'd like to name. The best way to describe her is that she's kind of the "Chip" of my retelling, the friendly little 6/7 year old trapped in an enchantment that makes her invisible. (Which doesn't really matter because my main character's blind...)
    Anyway, her name right now is Kyrie. She used to be a boy named Kyre, but now I'm doubting my choice.
    Kyrie means "lord"
    All of my names are greek/latin, so I've come up with several choices. (and it has to start with K, and can't be any form of Kalista or Kallie because my main character is named Calista)

    Her last name as of right now is Gill. Her mother is Melina and her father is Thaddeus.
    Kalonice (Beauty’s victory)
    Kalyca (rosebud)
    Karis (love)
    Kineta (full of energy)
    Klynn (glory)

    What do you like best? Any of these names would fit her.

    My personal favorite 'k' name is the Japanese word for beautiful: Kirei. Pronounced keer-ay, I think it is gorgeous and fits in with the other names you are choosing from- except it isn't Latin or Greek.

    From your list, I think I'd go with Kyrie- sounds cute, which I think is what you want for your character.

    My personal favorite of your choices is Karis. One of my close friends is named Karis and she could easily fit Chip role. I also think it's fun to say

    Out of those, I would just stick with Kyrie. It's cute and different.

    Hm. I think Kyrie is a great fit, followed by Karis, and Kyra. Good luck!
