    Vera, Esther or Agnes?

    We have a son named NOAH Leonard (pronounced Leo-nard) and just had a daughter. We have had such a hard time deciding her name but have narrowed it down to Vera, Esther or Agnes.

    Our surname (last name) is Walden. We live in Sweden and I speak Spanish and Swedish with my kids and have a strong connection to the english language so it makes the decision so much harder.

    What do you like best for a girl?

    Vera
    Esther
    Agnes

    A middle name could be Lou or a combination of the names above.

    I love Esther! Esther Lou is adorable. I also like Agnes as a second choice, followed by Vera.

    Ironically my husband's grandmothers were Esther and Vera, and his mom's middle name is Lou. So I have a soft spot for all of these names.

    I absolutely love all three of these names! I voted for Agnes because I think the -ah sounding endings of Vera and Noah are a little matchy, and because Esther and Noah is a bit too biblical for me personally, but those are my own weird little quirks. I really don't think you can go wrong! Good luck and congrats
