    Multi-cultural/lingual names

    We're a German-Indonesian-Scottish family and absolutely stumped on names that will [mostly] work in German, English and Malay. We're generally trying to stay away from names that start with "J" or "W" because of pronunciation issues.

    I really like some boy names than end in "an", (Roman, Declan, Ronan, Nolan, etc) but because of our last name ending in "mann", those generally don't sound so great together.

    Some boy names we like:

    Dominic
    Flynn
    Elias
    Jonas
    Matthias
    Bodhi
    Balthasar
    Albrecht

    Some girl names we like:

    Maya
    Cosima
    Arya
    Freya
    Katarina
    Camila

    Any comments? Suggestions? I would be forever grateful for any help/guidance. We're just completely lost. Please help!

    Maya
    Camilla (prefer double 'l')

    I think if you go with something simple that avoids the forbidden letters which cause pronunciation issues you'll be on the right track.
    Suggestions:
    Ada
    Pearl
    Violet
    Ruth
    Olivia
    Caitlin
