Found out yesterday it's a girl
And then realized that we aren't sold on any girl names at all! I feel like I've looked at every girl name in existence. It's not that I don't like any-- I just don't see them on OUR girl.
So, this is a two part question:
First, what is your opinion on using a shortening of a common name as the given name? I like names that are 1 or 2 syllables. My husband likes Susan, and I like Zuza (my taste is more eccentric, his is more traditional), so I was thinking we could meet halfway and use Suza, possibly. I don't really find the name in a list anywhere, but I don't think anyone would think it's completely odd or made-up since it's very similar to Suzy, Susan, Suzanne. What do you think?
Second-- suggestions, please!
I'm looking for a 1 to 2 syllable name that you don't hear every day; feminine, but not too girly; I tend to like international names.
Here are some that I like, but we're not sold on: Petra, Verona, Gianna, Mila, Fleur, Alma, Sloan
Thanks in advance for the help!!

I think Suza works.......people will think its made up, because it is, but I wouldn't let that bother you. All names were made up at some point, and many many people are rockin "made up" names nowadays and they are fine. My nieces name is Kaelen, she is 12 and seems fine. She does get Katelyn A LOT, but then again, many names get mistaken for others everyday.
As for suggestions, I would have to think about that but off the top of my head, Scout, Juniper, Bronwen, Corinne, Isla, Quinn, Rue.Mama to Theodore Adler Emmett "Theo" born April 2, 2012

Suza automatically makes me think of John Phillip Sousa, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but she might get some weird looks if she ever took band in high school. I'm not a fan of the sound either, sorry. It sounds more like a nickname than a given name.
As for your second request, how about:

Suza isn't bad, but it sounds more like a nickname to me. I do agree that it would probably do just fine in the world though. It seem pretty intuitive to spell and say.
