Scandinavian names that work in English
What ideas do you have for girls names that work well in both Swedish/Danish/Finnish and English?

I'm currently massively in love with the idea of Laerke (Danish word for "lark", I believe), said LAIR-keh, kind of. It's quite unusual, but still looks similar enough to the English word that I think it'd work. I've been going on an international name hunt over the past week or two, and I also really like Kaia/Kaja, Dagny, and Elisabet (eh-LEE-sah-bet/eh-LEE-zah-bet). I'm clearly not a Scandinavian expert, though--I found very few that seemed to have that balance of unusual quirkiness but still usability in the United States. I do really love those four, though, and would be delighted to meet a little girl with any of those names!Ashley
