    My husband's family is Scandinavian, so I've done a lot of looking into names to honor his family. Here are some of my favorites for girls:

    Kaja/Kaia/Kaija
    Kadri
    Triin
    Laine
    Liisu/Liisi
    Kaisa
    Aliide
    Mai (pronounced My)
    Kristiina
    Annalise
    Emilia
    Viiu

    I just went looking on nameberry and found that most these names aren't on there, so I guess these are less common names? Or just less used in English speaking countries. Most of them I got from meeting his friends and family and researching his family history--and I would say all of them I have seen on Scandinavian name sites.
