    Can't commit

    I am having such a hard time finding the right name for my second daughter. Everything I find that I like I just feel like it is either too close to my daughter's or not as unique and beautiful as hers. Her name is Alira. My husband wanted Liara after a video game character and I actually like it but it is literally our daughter's name with the letters rearranged. I also love Elora and Eliora but both are so close to Alira that it takes away from her name. I love older names like Lorraine, Sylvia, Mae, Camille, and Nell, but can't see them working with my newborn. I want something beautiful and not overused. I have given up on trying to find something as unique but I definitely want something beyond the top 300. Any suggestions or suggestions on where to look?
