Suggestions for Elegant name
I would be very happy if I could get some name suggestions for a girl's name that you find to be "elegant". If you're able to, it would also be nice with a elegant name that:
-Is connected to/referencing birds
-Is connected to/referecing Cranes
-Is connected to/refercing the sky/flying
-A Japanese/Korean/Chinese/Vietnamese name
-A Classy, tranquility-filled, feminine name.
There's a lot of factors, the name you suggest defernetly doesn't have to fill all of them at once, but if you could, I would be very very happy!
Thank you so much everyone for your suggestion!

Paloma and Jemima / Yemima mean 'dove'. (Spanish and Hebrew, respectively)
Tzipporah means 'bird' in Hebrew.
Alya means sky in Arabic.
Sora is 'sky' in Japanese.
Celeste means 'of the sky'.
You could also look into things like Luna (for moon) or names of starts/constellations for a reference to the sky.
What do you mean by 'Asian'? Asia is a pretty big place.

My son's chinese name is Jia Xiang, and the Xiang part means 'to soar'. Fei means 'to fly' in Chinese (pronounced like Faye). Both characters can be used for girls. I think in general Chinese names are too difficult for most English speakers, not just in pronunciation, but because they are unique, each name is created specifically for the child, by combining characters.Melissa, Mama to Oscar Leopold.

I know almost nothing about East Asian names, but elegant I can do. Most of the names I find elegant are long, frilly, and aristocratic.
And while it's heavily associated with makeup now, Sephora is pretty elegant and means 'bird' in Hebrew.Gwen
