    3 syllable girl names not ending with -a?

    I need a feminine, lyrical, sophisticated, strong girl name that is 3 syllables and does not end in -a. Should not be made up or too trendy. Should also not be super common (not in top 20).

    Middle name will be Maya....

    We have tossed around:

    Everly - love it but too trendy

    Genevieve - love it but a bit too french and we don’t want to sound pretentious (we are not French)

    Eleanor - can’t, family has already used it twice

    Eloise - again, love it, but don’t want to be pretentious and too french like Genevieve above...

    Please help!

    Hi there.

    I don't think that Genevieve or Eloise seem pretentious to use. They're mainstream enough that it's completely acceptable. I particularly adore Eloise. It has such a sweet sound, but is also sophisticated. Good call on not using Everly. It's way way trendy. And too bad about Eleanor. That's my favorite!

    Other ideas:

    Adelaide

    Annelise

    Amelie

    Adelie

    Beatrice

    Beatrix

    Coraline

    Clementine

    Cecily

    Dorothy

    Gwendolen

    Imogen

    Indigo

    Juliet

    Josephine

    Lucille

    Lucienne

    Marigold

    Millicent

    Rosalie

    Romilly

    Vivian

    Hope this helps.

    I was going to suggest Amelie but it is obviously French which you don’t want. I don’t think Eloise or Genevieve are at all pretentious though, nor too French to use. But this is coming from someone who named her daughter Amelie despite not being French so I’m biased Eleanor is so beautiful, it’s a shame you can’t use it. Some others (sorry for any repeats):

    Aveline
    Juniper
    Rosalind
    Adeline
    Gabrielle
    Seraphine
    Indigo
    Adelaide
    Isabel
    Clementine
    Elowen
    Marigold
    Evelyn
    Vivienne
    Mirabel
    Winifred
    Beatrix
