    Finola is my favorite, but I like it because I like Nola.
    I came across these names that, I don't think have been mentioned yet:
    Phiala is the name of an Irish Saint
    Fidelma (fee-delma)
    Finnea (maybe it's like Linnea?)
    Fineena - means beautiful child!
    Siofra means fairy, Fia could work as a nn...
    Any F name could work. Fairuza is pretty.
    I have heard a Felix being called "Fee". I am not too fond of Felixa, so what about Felicity?

    Oh, did anyone suggest Seraphine? It is a bit less frilly than Seraphina!

    Hm...I think I say Sarah like what you're describing as SEH-rah, and Seraphina is the same. I have heard other accents pronounce Sarah with a pretty harsh AIR sound, but we don't in this region, which borders the Great Lakes.

    Forvo to the rescue... http://www.forvo.com/word/sarah/#en I say Sarah like the pronunciation posted by "palitioner" and "Sar27."

    Seraphina is like "LaFratta_N" http://www.forvo.com/word/seraphina/#en

    So not any particular difference between Sarah and Sera. I guess maybe there should be, but there isn't.

    @niteowl, turns out hubby seems to like the frills; I'm less keen on frills but I don't mind if we find a compromise that makes us both happy. We know someone named Nola and don't want her name, so that one was probably first out, but it is cute. Someone found Fiala which I think would be about the same as Phiala, yes? The others are new to the list I think! Very cool, thanks! I sort of wondered about Felicity in passing, I know DH likes that one but it's kind of too...lacy? I just know I'll never say four syllables every single day, but if he doesn't care that I actually call the kid Fia every day, we may have opened a lot of options.

    I was thinking about it and Fifi is a nn for Josephine, so Fia could work.
    Other names that have ph in them could work too.
    Delphine is lovely, or the frillier Delphina/Delfina
    Another one is Ophelia.
    Good luck! Fia is a great name!
