    What do you think of the name Nina? It has always been one of my favorites.

    Re: Nina

    I love Nina. :)

    Are you looking for mns? For good flow I would avoid any names with a long "e" sound (like Genevieve) or a strong "n" sound (like Antonia).

    Nina Adelaide
    Nina Clementine
    Nina Eulalie
    Nina Florence
    Nina Frances
    Nina Iris
    Nina Jessamine
    Nina Juliet

    For sibsests I can see:
    Nina & Alia
    Nina & Bella
    Nina & Bianca
    Nina & Chloe
    Nina & Dasha
    Nina & Elena
    Nina & Esme
    Nina & Eva
    Nina & Giada
    Nina & Lilia
    Nina & Lucia
    Nina & Mira
    Nina & Rosa

    Nina & Adrian
    Nina & Anton
    Nina & August
    Nina & Ivan
    Nina & Leon
    Nina & Mateo
    Nina & Rafael
    Nina & Rocco
    Nina & Roman
    Nina & Stefan
    Nina & Tadeo
    Nina & Paolo
    Nina & Pietro

    Nina works with more exotic names for a sibset, rather than a traditional one (like Charles), a biblical one (like Isaiah), an Irish one (like Finn) or a trendy/unisex name (like Taylor).
    An ideal sibling name would be not too long or complicated, (no more than 3 syllables) of Spanish, Russian, Italian or another such origin, and be unique and cultured without being too out-there or tough to pronounce.
    If not, or if you don't want to get locked into a "pattern" for the sibset, then the name should at least complement Nina's strength, length, style, and distinctiveness well.

    Good luck!

    I really love the name Nina, and started liking it when I saw Diane Keaton's character, Nina Banks, in the Father of the Bride movies. I think it manages to be sweet, elegant, exotic, and down-to-earth all at once.

    There was a thread about Nina a while ago, but I wasn't able to find it. (I'll try again after I eat...)

    Have a good night! :-)

    Rose - great list!

    I already have a girl named Laura, I ~think~ that goes with Nina, even though it is more classic than exotic as you describe.
