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.

- Saffron
- Nina
- Fern
- Zara
- Seraphine

#18 millej13

Our daughter is Ayla - I think it's beautiful!!

#19 Gudrun

Posted 24 December 2012 - 11:35 AM

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

I love Aurora, Tabitha, and Nora.

Other ones I like that are uncommon afaik.

Opal - I toy with this as I love it as an Australian gem. Also I would call her Polly for short and I love Polly for some reason.
Marigold
Magnolia
Rosemary - Romy/Rory, and I like the "rememberance" aspect. I like Rosamund too.
Iliana
Jessamine
Eliora
Morwenna
Kezia, Ketzia - Biblical, pretty meaning, "cinnamon." I've known girls named Cinnamon too but I like Kezia or Ketzia. I would call her Zia or Kitty (for Ketzia it works well I think) for short.
Vesper
Verity
Briar
Katia/Katya/Katja but I like Katia best.
Reina
Xanthe
Shoshana/Susannah
Elowen - I am not even slightly Welsh/UK-ish, even generations ago, so I really have no good explanation for my affection for Elowen, Anwen, Branwen, Rhoswen, etc. but that's why I married some Aussie guy so I can proxy it.
