    Etulina or Etulaina (surnames, can't find a meaning!)

    Hi Ladies and gents,

    I don't know if the rest of you do this, but I love looking through Pinterest for international names (first and surnames) and find some pretty unique ones! I am still on the hunt for the (one day, I hope!) little girl name to pair nicely with my son's name Atticus. I don't have "hard and fast rules," but it would be nice to find a name with "a" and "u" in it (both my husband, me and my son have this "underlying theme"). To top it off, both his girl cousins have names that start with "E" (Elise and Emma), so it would be nice to a name that fits this as well (again, not hard and fast rule, but something I look out for

    Anyway, found this as a surname on Pinterest:

    Etulina

    Has anyone heard of this? Know a meaning?

    Never did hear about it. Googling the handful of results seem to tie to Spanish, also some German. Etul as a possible masculine related form has hits in lots of different languages.

    For your criteria (starts with E, contains A and U) what comes to mind off the top of my head are

    Elula
    Emmanuelle (might be too close to Emma though)
    Eulalia
    Eulalie

    To me, I'd worry this might be mispronounced, Et tu, Lina?

    But that shouldn't shouldn't stop you if you love it.

    Personally, I think you could do better with Atticus's sister since you have bold naming tastes.

    Thanks! I am exploring all avenues, I always had Atticus' name picked out, I just can't seem to find "the one" for a girl I have even thought of a double-barrel name...struggling!

    Eulalia has been suggested alot...it is a very pretty name, but it just doesn't seeem like "the one"
