    @sansa_nanami, could you tell, what's the story behind these names? I've never heard neither Sansa nor Nanami before. And they are not in Nameberry base

    yael: Of course!

    Sansa - Is a name I came across when reading the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series by George RR Martin; it was the name of one of his female POV characters. I hadn't heard it before then and I ended up thinking it was a really beautiful, uncommon, but not weird name. Over time, it grew on me to the point where I couldn't let go of it. The character in the book herself is one that I can identify with, so that made the connection a bit stronger. As to pure name origins, I'm not sure if Sansa is a "real" name, although I have heard it is Sanskrit, or possibly linked to the name Sancha (name meaning: pious, holy).

    Nanami - Is a Japanese name. I've noticed Nameberry is lacking a lot in at least the Japanese name base, sadly. Nanami's name meaning can vary a little based on what kanji characters it would have been written with, but the meaning I'd intend with using it is "seven seas." Water, in an obscure way, has a lot of meaning in my life, and so the idea of a water name really appealed to me. I also loved the soft, sweet cadence of Nanami when spoken. More broadly, some Japanese heritage in the family plus a love of the culture made it more something that I liked the idea of, having my child receive a Japanese name for a MN.

    I think Astoria goes the best with Sansa. Adelaide and Agnes have a more vintage vibe to them. Stylistically I think Astoria just fits better since its a little more "out there" too.

    I voted for Astoria. Like other posters have mentioned, Astoria is the best fit because it's a rare choice like Sansa. Adelaide and Agnes are both well-known names with centuries of use, so they both feel very odd with Sansa.

    While I think all of these names can work, I voted for Astoria Miharu. As I have seen you around on...listography, I think, I still love Sansa and Astoria for you.
