    Alma on my mind

    hi everyone,
    am due in september and really love the name Alma for our little girl. it's a bit old fashioned but i can only think of calling her like this. I think it's cute and quite uncommon. When i think of her, I think of her as Alma.....
    We live in italy and I want a short international name that cannot be abbreviated.
    My bofriend however, doesn't like it at all...

    Any tips on changing his mind or other similar names?

    thanks!

    I like Alma very much. Names similar in feel... Clara, Elisa, Mara, Lila, Dalia, Serena, Aurelia, Lucilla...
    Sorry for bad English, I am from other country

    If he likes to read you can give him Nicole Krauss' The History of Love. It changed my mind about Alma.

    Similar names that comes to mind: Alba and Alva (obvious I know, but they're beautiful and work well in Italia)

    thanks ottilie, should try that , History of love was the book that changed MY opinion about the name. Before it was just the name of my grandmother's best friend
