    Portuguese/Anglo Baby Girl

    I just discovered this site and I love it! We have two boys and are pregnant with a LITTLE GIRL. We are all really excited. We live in the US, I'm American, and my husband is Portuguese. In honoring my husband's culture we have named our kids Portuguese names for their first names and middle names after grandparents. Our first son is Diogo Victor (Victor after my grandfather), and our second son Cruz Augusto (after dh's grandfather). We live in a very multicultural area where unique names are common.

    We are looking for a name for our little girl, and having a tough time. We are looking for a Portuguese name that isn't too challenging for Americans/my parents. No popular names on the US list (Sofia and Isabel), and steering away from names that are easily made into nicknames (Kimberly becomes Kim). The big question for me is whether the name should be a popular Portuguese name, or whether anything off the Portuguese gov't list would do...

    Top tier:
    Floriana - love, and was my my dh's grandmothers name
    Fiona - love, love this, but not sure if it really seems Portuguese...
    Mara - this would have been my ds if a girl, but my love is fading
    Beatriz - current favorite

    Also of interest:
    Leonor
    Avelina
    Eliana
    Marta - Martha was my grandmother, love this version
    Eloisa
    Aitana
    Acacia
    Graša


    Would love feedback, and whether or not you have any suggestions.

    Debra

    Thanks! I love Beatriz too. Not sure if my husband does or not, but it is growing on me more day-by-day.

    Can you think of any middle names for Beatriz?

    Grandmother names are Martha (I could go with Marta), Frances, Floriana, and Maria. Not sure if any of them work!

    I would be open to other names as well, any suggestions?
