Non-English Versions of Classics
Hello Berries! Having seen several threads asking for help narrowing down long lists, it got me thinking. I only have three names in my signature for each gender, *ahem* signifying my obvious skill at quick decision making, without faffing around. Or this is what it would signify, if I actually had any more girl names on my list that 'fit'. So I've decided to make a thread which does the opposite of narrowing down!
Here comes the annoying bit. I have unintentionally set myself in a bit of a pattern regarding girls names, so I have some criteria:
1) It must be a non-English form of a classic name. (Carlotta = Italian Charlotte, Marguerite = French Margaret, Elisabet = Norwegian Elizabeth)
2) It cannot begin with C, M, E, D, N or K. (which rules out Catalina, which I love!)
3) I would prefer it not to end in 'a', 'eet' or 'et' sounds, but to be honest, I'm desperate at this point...
Could anyone help me broaden my girl list? Just first names please - I have a long, long list of middles and honouring people etc., so that's going to be tricksy to narrow down. *sigh* (but I'll love doing it secretly!)
Thank you so, so much!Dougal Fitzwilliam Matthias † Skandar Christian Raphael † Richard Corentin Magnus
