    Calling all classy, international names!

    I feel like my list is leaning in the direction of these semi-unusual, international names that are unusual, but still pretty usable here in America. So far I'm tossing around something along these lines:

    Isla
    Cosima
    Aurélie
    Aliénor (an old French form of Eleanor--ah-lee-ay-nor)
    Anne-Sophie/Anne-Claire (I love these French Anne- double-barrels!)
    Emilia
    Anouk (less sure about this one, but I still think it's really cool, and I love the nn Annie)
    Zosia (ZOH-shah)
    Zoe (it's Greek! It's French! And it's used virtually everywhere!)

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks, guys!

    I was going to recommend the BBN list too. Elea has some great lists if you're ever looking for new ideas. Here are some Scandinavian name links:
