Dutch-esque girl name for #4
Hello! I'm Devin and I'm 32 weeks pregnant with my 4th child (sex unknown) and we're having a much harder time with names this time around that "fits" with our other children.
My son is Leiden Dominic (LYE-din) after the city and university where dh and I met (he's got Dutch ancestry and I took a degree in Art History studying all the Dutch painters), so we got stuck in a bit of Dutch-esque thing, though we live in the U.S. His name came to us really easily, though we use the anglicized pronunciation not the Dutch, which is closer to LAY-din.
My first daughter is Saskia Rosemary (SAHS-kee-uh), another Dutch name with links to art history.
Then we had a beast of a time figuring out a name for our third child, but ended up with Aleydis Josephine (uh-LAY-dis), another antiquated Dutch name.
We're kind of stuck now with another Dutch-esque name (or perhaps a Scando-Germanic name), even though nothing that we've come across so far is screaming THE ONE.
On our list so far we have:
Catharina/Katharina (seems a bit dull in comparison)
Lysanne (though we'd like to avoid another L, S, or A name)
Any suggestions?Devinmom toLeiden Dominic (7)Saskia Rosemary (6)Aleydis Josephine (4)

I think Evelien fits perfectly! I feel like it has that same feel and distinctiveness that your other names have - Classic-sounding, but exotic. Perhaps all you need is the right middle name for a name/combo to be THE ONE.

Evelien is just perfect ! I love it ! it fits perfectly with your other kids names .I loved her not for the way she danced with my angels but for the way the sound of her name could silence my demons.~ Christopher Poindexter.
