    I knew two girls in grammar school from Latvia and one of them I know had a Scandinavian name, Inga, meaning that she is guarded by Ing, spirit of fertility. Her sister was named Ieva, long ee sound yhev (rhymes with bev in beverly) ah. ee-yhev-ah. I love both of those.
    Also:
    Dominique -french, belongs to the lord
    Laurette -my mom's name means little laurel tree or crowned with laurel
    Giselle -third french name, meaning pledge
    I also like Simone, Aries, Gemini, Cairo, Demaris/Damaris, and Olympia(greek, home of the gods) There are many more international names I like....

    How do you define "international sounding"? Names that work well throughout most of the world (which, as a foreigner, I would say that a lot of names do per se - I mean, there will always be pronunciation issues because most languages pronounce names differently, but once you get ahold of the pronunciation, it's really not a problem) or names with roots in other countries?
