    Name for daughter we are adopting from China

    Hello,
    We are trying to decide on a name for our soon to be daughter. We are adopting an 18 month old baby girl from China. We are completely thrilled, so very excited. We've known about her for about a month and haven't been able to decide on her name. Would love some input.
    We have 3 boys, Gabe, Dexter, and Quincy. I'm so excited to have a daughter.
    It seems like so many of the names we love have been used by family or close friends. We like Anna Kate, Penelope, & Annabelle. We will likely keep her Chinese name as a middle name.
    Thoughts on any of those? Other suggestions? Criteria- definitely girly. Obvious pronunciation.
    We live in a small town, I don't want a super super popular name, but nothing too far out there. Example, we have lots of Isabella's in town, but we just now got a Harper.
    Thanks,
    Michelle

    Perrine means 'traveler'. I've met a boy using Perrin, but no little girls named Perrine (though I have a few French ancestors with the name). I think it's sweet.

    I know a Perrine! Gorgeous name and it suits her well.

    What's her Chinese name? Is there a way of translating that into English? It's something that was given to her, so that might be important to her someday. If there isn't really a translation, I like "Lily", "Eve", "Joy" or "Hope".
