I like Elda a lot. It doesn't say here but its the Italian variant of Hilda, meaning "battle ready" and it has folklore ties with Brunhilde the Norse princess. Its a powerhouse of a strong feminine name. Also I don't mind that its close to "elder" because it sounds like a sweet modern take on the Elderflower and I love me a good floral name!

I like the sound of this but it's too close to elder to get away with.
