    I typed a long reply to your suggestions... Alas my blackberry ate it! I'll try again on a computer!

    Thanks for all the ideas. Love the nameberry talent!!! I especially would appreciate Norwegian/Scandinavian names (with pronunciation).

    Anything that ends in an e is pronounced with the schwa sound. Elongate the vowels with an r -- Beer-git, Gayr-da. With Ingrid and Astrid the d is not voiced. Kj is Ch, so it's Chayrsti. Best place to find modern Scandinavian names is in current crop of Scandinavian mystery writers, such as Karin Fossum and Jo Nesbo.
