    Thyri (pronounced "theory")

    I was thinking Thyri Katerine or Freya Beatrice as my top choices.

    Only like Freya because it has nice meaning and Freya was goddess of love and magic. Another reason is easy-to-spell and it's recognisable. Not that I'm opposed to wacky names, just don't like names I have trouble pronouncing or trouble making an impression. Thora is OK, but prefer Thor on boy and Thora is just too masculine for my taste.

    I love Thora so, so much! I would see Thyri and want to pronounce it tyree. I don't know if that makes a difference to you. It's a pretty name, but she may have to spell/pronounce it for people in English speaking countries.

    Freya Beatrice is great!

    Thora, Brinja and Thyri are so beautiful! Thyri Katerine is stunning, that would be my choice.
