Baby Name Needed – Name for Baby Girl #1

Reader Leanne is looking for a name for her baby girl. She says:

Names that have been shortlisted to date are Eliana Heidi and Melanie Jacinta. However, my nieces are Ariana and Stephanie so I would like [a name] that doesn’t sound too similar.

She liked the combination Hayley Melissa at one time as well, but the “-ley” ending doesn’t work with her married name, and she’d like to stay away from an alliterative pairing.

Other favourite names such as “Anneliesa” and “Shay-Lisa” seem to blend awkwardly with [my] surname and almost make it sound like the surname is “Sleazeman”.

That’s not good. Finally, she loves the name Heidi, though she’s “more inclined to use it as a middle name.”

There is German heritage in my husband’s family and whilst it would be nice to reflect that, it isn’t essential.

My first thought was to look for a few feminine-sounding German names. Nadya, Ottilie, Saskia and Tatiana fit the bill, but none of these are as modern-sounding as the names Leanne mentioned, so they may not be of interest.

Other possibilities include:

Alexia
Alyssa
Amelia
Bethany
Bianca
Candace
Cassandra
Chelsea
Cynthia
Delia
Gabriella
Giselle
Jillian
Julissa
Kiara
Lillian
Linnea
Malia
Mia
Michaela
Milena
Olivia
Sabrina
Sierra
Sydney
Tabitha
Trista
