    Help us find a name, please!

    Hi everyone,

    Me and my husband need some serious help! We are expecting our first baby, a girl, in February and we have a really, really hard time finding and agreeing on a name for her.

    I can tell that my husband is getting a little stressed (and frankly, so am I), since he already does have a couple of fav's, but I am basicially not feeling them 100%.I keep browsing namesites and name-lists like crazy, but so far nothing really struck me as "the" name. I feels like we like somewhat different styles.

    To help you help me:
    Our last name starts with an H and is a one syllabus name.
    Need the name to work internationally, since we live in the USA, but have family in both Sweden and Israel. I would love for the name to be either scandinavian or hebrew.
    I prefer a name that has some menaing to it.
    If we ever have a son (in the future), his name would be Nathaniel.

    Below are a couple of names we have on our list:

    Orly: my favorite right now. Love the mening (my light) My husband says no.
    Lana: One of my husbands favorites, not one of mine
    Chloe: One of husbands favorites. I am unsure about how it would work in Sweden though.
    Enya: Both of us like it, but being irish it feels to me like it has nothing to do with our heritage.
    Liora: Kind of the same meaning as Orly. Have not shared with hsuband yet.

    Please let me know of any ideas of names you get to add to our list of names. Also appeciate your thought on the names we already listed.

    I know most of the names I listed above are short. The final name does not neccesarily have to be short. A longer name would probably go better with our last name, but.. I guess I rather jsut find the right first name at this point. A middle name will probably add some flow to the full name eventually (I am not as concered about the middle name even thoguh we do not have one picked out yet).

    thank you for your input!
