Baby Name Needed – Non-Biblical, International Girl Name

A reader named Eric is expecting his first baby — a little girl — and he’d like some help coming up with a name. He writes:

We’re looking for something non-biblical, the more international the better, and should be no more than three syllables, preferably two. Front-runners are Daphne, Maya, and Clementine.

The baby’s surname will be either Gower or van der Plas.

Here’s what I came up with:

Bella
Camilla
Carla
Celia
Clara
Cora
Coral
Delia
Diana
Elena
Emily
Emma
Flora
Helen/Helena
Iris
Karina
Larisa
Laura/Lara
Leona
Lina
Lucina
Mala
Marina
Martina
Mina
Mona
Nina
Nora
Odessa
Regina
Rhea
Rita
Roma
Rosa
Sabina
Selena
Stella
Sylvia
Tara
Teresa
Tessa
Thea/Tea
Tina
Zara

I tried to focus on short, simple names that I thought would cross borders easily. I don’t believe any of the above are mentioned in the Bible (someone please correct me if I’m wrong).

Do you think any of these names sound particularly good with Gower and/or van der Plas? What other names would you suggest to Eric?

P.S. Eric’s blog looks delicious, doesn’t it?

Update: The baby is here! Scroll down to see what name Eric chose.
