    Sibling name for Lyra

    Hello, hoping you may be able to help
    me. We are struggling to find a name that we agree on for our second daughter, she will be a sister to Lyra so would like a name that fits with that. DH likes more traditional names whereas I like slightly more
    unusual ones.

    Here are a few we've considered but none seem like 'the one'.

    Thea
    Arya
    Aster
    Erin
    Rosie (do like this but as a nickname for something longer)


    Any suggestions gratefully received.

    Thea - I like this (prn th-ee-a; how do you pronounce it?)
    Arya - way too close to Lyra visually. One letter different. unless you are into matchy--plenty of people are, and they do sound different.
    Aster - I like this name.
    Erin - to me this comes nowhere close to the beauty of Lyra
    Rosie - cute. how about Rosalie?

    How about something else short, sweet, and slightly exotic sounding: Esme; Este; Zara; Zora; Zola?

    Ruby
    Olive
    Wren
    Pearl
