    Dutch/Afrikaans girls' names?

    I am looking for girls' names of Dutch or Afrikaans origin that will play well in the UK.

    Me and my partner (who is a South African expat) are currently discussing names for a potential baby and we would like some inspiration.

    I'm really looking forward to reading your replies!

    Behati? I'm not really familiar with Dutch or Afrikaans names, but isn't Behati Prinsloo from South Africa? I thought I'd heard that it was the Afrikaans form of Beatrice. I personally wouldn't use it, as I find it too iconic of the model, but a lot of people seem to love it.

    @bibliophile: Thanks. We like Saskia and Senna.

    @ashthedreamer: According to my partner Behati is a very exotic name. He's never heard of it before.
