    I would stick with something simple. One, maybe two syllables. I don't think you have to stick with classic (or something you feel is boring), but it should be short and simple (Fleur is short, but it doesn't feel very simple to me). I think something along the lines of:

    Liv
    Lily
    Greer
    Hannah/Anna
    Jane
    Claire/Clara
    Julia (three syllables, but short enough that it can work)
    Sophie
    Claire
    Tessa/Tess
    Zane
    Luke
    Seth
    Noah
    Isaac
    Daniel
    Samuel
    Aaron
    Silas
    Cyrus
    Peter
    James
    Jack (sorry, I'm trying to think of non-Biblical names, but that's all that's seeming to come to mind atm!)
    Caleb
    Spencer, etc.

    would work well, I think. I just came up with the name Waldorf-Mitochondria, which I'm assuming your surname is NOT, lol, and I think all of those work fine with that. Claire Waldorf-Mitochondria, Spencer Waldorf-Mitochondria, etc.--they sound fine. As long as you don't overdo it. Either way, he/she is going to have a long name to memorize, but if you keep it short and simple I think you're okay.

    Good luck!

    Since the surname is broken up as three separate words (two of which are very simple), I think a somewhat longer name could still sound decent. However, keep in mind that the child will have to fill out forms with his or her full name, and that could become an unnecessarily tedious process with a lengthy first name attached to La Rocco Demeter. What are some of the names that you like?
