    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)
    Evelien
    Greet/Margreet
    Jacintha
    Justine/Jestine
    Lysanne (though we'd like to avoid another L, S, or A name)
    Madelief
    Mathilde
    Thirza
    Isa
    Noa

    Any suggestions?

    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.

    Musings ~ Alice Cassia ~

    (I'm using the 3 syllable pronunciation of Cassia & soo-NEE-va pronunciation of Sunniva)

    “I am eternally, devastatingly romantic, and I thought people would see it because 'romantic' doesn't mean 'sugary.' It's dark and tormented — the furor of passion, the despair of an idealism that you can't attain.”
