    @niteowl13 - I know, I love it when this happens and there are so many wonderful suggestions!

    @valerie2 - Thank you, Giuliana is very pretty, but it ends with -a like Carlotta... My fussiness refuses to subside regarding that aspect, I'm afraid. And similarly with Moira, if it weren't for Marguerite... Thank you anyway - any excuse to see beautiful names!

    @emilyva - Ines, Olena and Yulia (love this one!) are so lovely - thank you for the thought and time you put in!

    @kacey1010 - Beatriz is one I have considered using, or Beatrice pronounced the Italian way (bay-ah-TREE-chay) but Alisa is nice also. Thank you so much!
