    A Name For Our Little Ballerina

    Hi there. My husband and I are expecting our second child, our first little girl. We have a son named Leopold Xavier. Leopold is my mother-in-law’s maiden name, so it has family significance, and we just really liked Xavier for it’s sound. For our daughter we’re looking for a name that’s light, graceful, a bit romantic- something you could envision on a ballerina. I was a ballerina for a long time and teach dance now and I’d love for my (probably only) daughter’s name to reflect my love of ballet, even if she doesn’t become a ballerina (though hopefully she will!). From personal experience, my name is Jamie and I always wished I had a more feminine, elegant name like many of the girls I danced with. Some names we like are Francesca, Arabella, and Diana, but we’d like to expand our list a bit.

    Thanks for any help/ideas!
    -Jamie

    Thanks for the responses so far! I ran a bunch of these by my husband and we really like Nadia, Madeline (but maybe too popular for our liking), Lydia and Genevieve. I forgot to mention that I have a love of all things French, so we might consider using a French name, and that our last name is Mallory, so a lot of names ending in "y" sound awkward. Keep 'em coming!
