    Exclamation Need A Strong but Girly Name

    I feel like I've seen every name in existence and I still cannot decide on a good girl's name to go with big brother Maximus Alexander. We already decided on Dante Amadeus for our next boy. As for a girl, we're lost.

    We want strong names that are not in the top 100 and have good meanings. (See why it's so hard?) Maximus Alexander means "Greatest Defender of the People." Dante Amadeus means "Everlasting Love of God."

    Now to find a girl's name that meets this criteria. We like French names like Cosette (Victorious People). My biggest problem at the moment is that my favorite girl's name is Alexa but we couldn't use it since we have Alexander used already (and it's too popular for us). Any ideas? Thank you!!

    I love Vera Cosette as it means "victorious life."

    Eleni Cosette or Eleni anything would be wonderful too! Eleni is a variant of Helen, meaning "bright, shining one." I pronounce it ah-lay-knee, the way it's pronounced in the movie of the same title.

    What about Valencia? I think she would be a perfect sibling for Maximus. It means strong/brave/healthy depending on where you look, it's also a place name, a saints name too, or the name of an orange if that matters. I love it for you!

    Cosette does not mean "victorious people"!!!! It means "little thing", and it was created by Victor Hugo in the Misérables as the nickname of the main character, an unwanted, abandoned child. I think you may be confusing it with Colette, which does come from Nicole / Nicholas / Nikolaos - "victory of the people".

    What about Alexia? It's the feminine form of Alexis, and it means "defender" (the same element in Alexander, but a different name). I don't think it's strange if your son's goes by his first name of Maximus.
    Alice or Alix ("noble kind")
    Axelle ("my father is my peace")
    Allegra ("cheerful")
    Alma ("soul")
    Alta ("high")

    More ideas:
    Lux (light)
    Pax (peace)
    Bellatrix (warrior)
    Victoria, Victory
    Honora (honour)
    Matilda (strenght in battle)
    Bellona (goddess of war)
    Edith (blessed war)
    Grisel, Griselda, Zelda (grey battle)
    Roxana, Roxanne (dawn)
    Aurora (dawn)
    Esmée (beloved)
    Claire, Clara ("clear")
    Niamh, Neve ("bright")
    Beatrix ("voyager" or "bringer of happiness")
    Felicia ("happiness")
    Amabel ("kind")
    Kerensa ("love")
    Carys ("love")
    Zoe ("life")
    Clementine ("merciful")
    Constance ("constancy")
