    Name for third girl - due soon!

    Hello,

    We have been having a hard time finalizing a name for our third daughter. Our first two are names Heidi Camille and Colette Marie (so far goes exclusively by nn Coco).

    These are my preferences (does not have to meet all criteria):
    Two syllables
    Familiar by not trendy (200+ in popularity, been used for over 50 years)
    Not very similar to or easily confused with a more common name
    Linked to our german/french/danish background
    Spunky feel
    Does not start with A, C or H
    Does not end in N

    This is my short list: Greta, Vera, Tessa, Sylvie, Esme
    This is my husbands list: Lillian/Lily, Laura, Leia, Elsa/Elsie, Erika, Gretchen, Gabrielle, Mina, Mira, Malena, Julie, Claire, Simone, Maeve, Maelle, Renee, Mae, Nicole, Zoe

    The only one I really have considered out of husbands list is Mira, but it doesn't feel substantial enough to me and feels too similar to Myra, Mia, Mea, Mila, etc.

    My favorite by far is Greta, husband isn't totally on board as of now...

    Liesel or Liesl is a great name, and under-used in the US.

    From your husband's list, I like: Mira, Simone, Maeve, & Zoe

    Suggestions:
    Astrid - It's becoming more popular. I like it with Heidi and Colette, but might be too harsh for you.
    Matilda - It fits your German heritage.
    Juna - It's a soft name that goes well with Heidi and Colette
    Currently searching for that perfect name...


    The Favorites For Now (constantly change):

    Esperance, Dagny, Victoria, Isis, Aurora, Astoria, Calypso, Pearl, Photini, Circe and so forth..

    Zayden, Ambers, Phoenix, Gabriel, Barnabas, Ethan, Roman, Sol, Auden, Oleksander, Jensen, and so forth...
