Girl Names of Latin Origin?
I recently realized that my two favorite boy names, Quentin and Silas, are both of Latin/Roman origin. I think it's a theme I'd really like to use on my kids (in the very far-away future haha), but I haven't been able to really find female Latin names that I both love and are...normal, I guess? Haha, not necessarily normal, but a name that wouldn't turn heads, but instead make people think "Darn it. Why didn't I spend more time looking for an uncommon name?"
Anyhoo, here are the girl names I'm considering (for my nonexistent daughter):
-Pax (meaning peace. I love this, but I feel like most people associate this with boys due to the name Paxton and Angelina Jolie's son.)
-Isidora (meaning gift of Isis. Nice name, but I kinda dislike how choppy it is, in the sense that the name really inclines you to call the person Isa, Izzy, Dora, or Dory.)
-Verena (meaning integrity. I like this very much, but I feel like people might think it was me trying to be youneek with Serena or something.)
-Eudora (meaning generous gift. I like this almost as much as Pax. Except that it's Greek :P)
(I'm also not really a fan of names ending in "a" for girls, but most Latin names do. What a conundrum.)
So, any suggestions? For both boy and girl names of Latin origin actually, but specifically the female ones.

I like Latin/Greek names too. Love Silas and Isadora/Isidora (one of my favorites). Pax is better for a middle name (I have a cousin named Lucia Pax) Here are some suggestions (I'll star my favorites):
Aurelian, Aurelius, Aurelio
Cato (too Hunger Games for you?)
Gratian (means grace)
Revere (Virtue Name)*
Callum (Scottish Variant of Columba)*
I added a few weird ones because everyone's defenition of 'normal' is different. I hope that helped!Just another teenberry and writer, a lover of names
