    Welsh and Latin baby girl names--any suggestions?

    Do you have any more suggestions on Welsh and/or Latin names for girls?

    I'm looking for names that mean Triumphant, Victorious, Miracle, Love, Beloved, etc. Don't yet know the sex of our baby, but will find out in about 2 weeks. I can't wait! While we think we have a boy name picked out (thanks to so much feedback!), we're still not sure for girls.

    Here is my top choice of the moment: Carys Wynne (Love/ Fair, Blessed).

    Welsh names meaning love/beloved:

    Angharad = an-hah-rad
    Annwyl = an-wil
    Carwen = kah-wen
    Carys = ka-riss (ka like cat)
    Cerys = ke-riss
    Mabli = mab-lee
    Rhiangar = ree-an-gar

    Most are on Forvo, if you want to hear Welsh people saying them

    I can give you a few Latin words, but nothing Welsh. They might not be quite the right definitions, but I like them as names or for their meanings. I'll put this sign by ones that are good:
    Aedes- safe temple
    Aeolia- female form of Roman god of the winds
    Aeris- bronze
    Amicitia- friendliness or friendship
    Audacia- boldness
    Aura- air or breeze
    Cecini- sing
    Carmen- song or poem
    Celer- speed
    Copia- plenty
    Dulcis- pleasant or sweet
    Dux- leader
    Etsi- although (nn?)
    Floris- flower
    Gloria- fame or glory
    Gratia- welcomeness
    Iter- journey
    Itineris- journey
    Jucunda- pleasing
    Laetitia- happiness
    Lux- light
    Luna- moon
    Lydia- Roman name for a country
    Minerva- name
    Ora- coast or shore
    Optima- best
    Pecunia- wealth
    Prudencia- wisdom
    Puella- girl
    Pulchre- beautiful
    Regia- palace
    Regina- queen (prn regEEna)
    Sagitta- arrow
    Sella- chair
    Silva- forest
    Soror- sister
    Stella- star
    Talaria- winged sandals
    Telluris- planet
    Thessalia- Thessaly (Roman place name)
    Unda- wave (in the ocean)
    Vere- truly
    Veneris or Venus- goddess of love
    Victoria- victory
    Virga- wand
    Vires- strength
    Velle- fly
    Vita- life

    To say love, there are several words you can use:
    Amo
    Amas
    Amatis
    Amavi
    Amor
    Amoris
    Amavero
    Amaveris
    Amaveritis
    Amori
    Amores

    Or, you could just use Amanda, which probably translates to about the same thing!
    Hope that long list helps!
