LOVE Freida, also love Aurora but I think it is quite popular.

If I were lucky enough to have another baby and she was a girl, I wouldn't be able to use either, yet both are in my top three names!

I have an Indonesian friend whose Indonesian name was Farida, meaning unique. I like Farida better than Frieda. I have also seen it spelt Farieda.

I don't find Nora/h to be pretty. The rest I do. In order:

1.Nadia

2.Aurora

3.Frieda or Frida or Freda.
(the spelling is a bit vexed. While the Freida spelling is a well established one from England it just seems a bit wrong because of where it comes from. Frieda from the German or Frida from the Scandinavian are both good. With Freida it illustrates how English speakers don't mind which way the letters of the diphthong go. Anyway it has a good meaning. Freda is good too with a different derivation.)

4. Alba

5. Tabitha

All good names!

I like Faye for a middle name.

I like Laridae's suggestion of Lydia.

Others:

Frederica/Frederika
Zelda
Jemima
Edwina
Nancy
Cynthia
Sybilla
Dymphna
Lilith
Flora
Sylvia
