    I'm pretty awful with pronouncions, but I would say Lykke is pronounced something like LUU-keh or LUY-keh.

    What about Dove?
    Or Paloma - dove in Spanish

    Humphrey actually means "peaceful warrior" which is sort of the feel you're describing.

    Lysander means "liberator". I could see that as a surname.

    Emery/Amory means strong, brave
    Livy/Lucy : Geneva/Gwen : Coralie/Alice : Noelle/Eve
    Eli/Bennett : Jude/Zane: Luke/Leo : Levi/Phineas

    I was playing around with Google translate, and life is Liv (pronounced as in Olivia, basically) in Danish and Vida in Spanish.
