    Nature names are a hit here at the moment, so something like Lotus Seven Li would fit several trends and still be uncommon, and also have a link to China.

    Just saw you changed to Qin. Lotus Qin Li is cute too.

    Another idea might be Honor.

    Honor Qin Li is really cute. Virtue names like Hope and Faith are long time favorites. Names like Glory and Honor are newer, but still fit the trend.

    So glad you are going with Qin as the middle! It will be lovely and beautiful : D. As to picking one name over the other, hmm, a couple thoughts:

    1) Juliana has historical ties to the month July, which is the 7th month of the year, so there'd still be a tie into seven there. I'm glad you're not going with Seven as the middle name by the way. It's perfectly fine, and I agree no one knows middle names, but a British celebrity Victoria Beckham recently named her daughter Harper Seven, and for some reason it just reminds me of that. Also, it was the title of a horror movie years and years ago - I doubt that many people remember it now, but it did come to mind for me.
    2) Juliana's meaning is "young" or "youthful" - is that a good meaning in Chinese traditions? Also, the first syllable of Juliana will evoke the word "Jewel" to many people - it's not unheard of for girls named Julie/Julia/Juliet/Julianne/Juliana to go by Jules (pronounced jewels) as a nickname. So that's probably a positive association.
    3) I think in general, look for meaning - what is the meaning of Qin? Maybe we can find an English-language name that ties to that?
    4) Or, what name would you pick in Chinese, and maybe we can help you find something with a similar meaning? Then calling her by that Chinese name could be a logical nickname option, or even a logical name to use in some cases in China, even if her main name / legal official name is an English one.

    Best wishes!

    ninanoo, thank you for your suggested names. We ever considered Diana but not decided.

    And jesba, thank you so much for your explanation of Juliana. I now love Juliana more than other names. As to Chinese name we have no idea at this time and we think it may be derived from the English name.

    Yes, I'm going to agree with @ninanoo... Nature names would work. A lot of Chinese names (both male and female) either seem to be nature (霞、晨、雯、莲), good luck in some way、or about one's good attributes (杰、仁)... so why not look for names with meanings in those categories?
