My advice is to something simple, classic and international.

    Ideas:
    Astrid
    Beatriz
    Carolina
    Clara
    Cecilia
    Ema / Emma
    Francisca
    Helena
    Isabel
    Leonor
    Luzia
    Matilde
    Olivia
    Sofia
    Teodora
    Zoe
    I don't think Bianca is considered trashy in Portugal. Astrid is amazing, but hard to pronounce in Portugal (and is another example of a non-trashy foreign name).

    I haven't noticed Matilde/Matilda. It would be perfect: international, not overused in the USA but completely normal in Portugal (in fact, Matilde is the second most popular name in Portugal right now) and, according to Nameberry, it has German roots!
