    Soft and unusual

    So we've been trying for a baby for a long time now and we just got pregnant in 2013. Because it was so hard to get pregnant, this might be our only baby (though we may adopt or try IVF). We need a perfect name and we're having a difficult time. My son is Gabriel Benjamin and we want something that goes with that, something soft, but something more unusual.

    Cousins (we are very close) are Elizabeth Rose, Elijah Bastien, Chari (shah-ree) Nicole, Ebon Sky (boy), Jaimie Antoinette, Drakken Kai (drake-en), Corin Frost, Umbrielle Robin, and Rowan Soleil.

    We want a girls name that's soft but strong and fierce. I've been through a good deal in my life and we had to fight to get this baby, so we want something that could belong on a warrior but is still good for now.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Edit ~ I forgot to mention I'm a good half Spanish and Italian. My wife is from Germany. We're semi-practicing Catholics. So anything from those heritages and saints names are encouraged.

    Gabriel Benjamin {and} Malachi Samuel {or} Miriam Abigail

    Gabriel Benjamin

    {"strong man of God" / "son of the right hand"} In the Bible, Gabriel was an angel.

    Malachi Samuel

    {"my angel" / "God has heard"}

    Miriam Abigail

    {"wished for child" / "my father is joy"}

    Which name do you really, really love the most?

    Go with the one that makes you smile every time you say it."

    Thank you. I like Malachi, prefer Malachy a bit. And Miriam is pretty soft.

    Anyone else want to throw names at me?

    Probably only guilty pleasures:
    Girls ~ Hedwig, Alba, Ondine, Faustine, Elvira
    Boys ~ Adalwolf, Faustus, Wulfric, Leofric, Bartholomeo
