    Second Guessing and Need New Suggestions

    As pregnant women are wont to do I'm second guessing our first name choice and I'm just wanting some new suggestions.

    We've pretty much decided on Lumi (Finnish word for snow) and though middle names are not set in stone yet, we're leaning towards Lumi Katherine Alba. But my other half called the baby Lumi recently when referring to her and it felt and sounded odd and now I'm not sure about it. Probably just hormones, but as a name geek I thought I'd get some other ideas.

    We don't really have any other choices we agree on. He likes Lyra, Suvi and Bronwen. I like Azure, Wylda, Ianthe and Maeve.

    Any suggestions similar to these or names that you think we might like? We like shorter simple names, no biblical names and not too frilly.

    Thanks in advance.

    Ottilie, I love Alba, but DD's name is Calla and it's too close and Alba doesn't flow as nicely off the tongue as I wish.

    I've considered Vilda as an alternative to Wylda as the Finns couldn't say Wylda the way I want. But I don't think I like it enough.

    Love Beata, but don't think OH does as he's ignored it on my list. We considered Eira, but decided against it. Saga just feels a bit cheesy to me here. I prefer Juna to Junia, but OH doesn't like it again.

    I've met a cute Zelda here, but can't imagine using it. Vilja is interesting, but we know a lot of Villi and Ville here and it feels too similar. My cousin just had a Sylvie so that rules out Silvia for me.

    Thanks, will ponder your list and any other suggestions and see if anything sticks.

    Alexa, thanks.

    Neva is interesting, but just looking it up it means bog in Finnish, so couldn't use. Love Iris, but OH has vetoed, same with Elowen.

    Arden is too similar to son Aidan. Tallis is interesting as is Brisa. Thanks.
