    Any names already considered

    Anything else:
    I was still leaning towards Rosamunde (that spelling) but then I heard that name heard on NPR and the German pronunciation is Roz-uh-MOON-duh. Which sort of ruined the name for me.

    Indicate which name I should use for the third sister in the comments please (if you vote for an Anna name in the poll.)

    Thanks again, Berries!

    Hi! I voted for Rosamund Natalya Luise because I like the fact that Rosamund has a story behind it.

    How are you pronouncing Rosamund?

    The way I say them:
    Rosamunde, in German, is RO-zah-mun-duh, and Rosamund is ROZ-uh-mund.

    Anyway, I kind of want to throw my vote for Agnes as you've got my middle and my sisters and my mother's and my grandather's name in that family already, haha. I think Agnes or Natalya are the best fits, honestly.

    I'm not really sure, to be honest. But I wanted to point out that all Anna considerations might want to be null and void, since I see she has a sister named Anna. I kind of like Sibylla, since changing her name to Sibyl could cause identity drama in England.
