Our dd is Astrid which we had picked out years before she was born and we were always very sure about. For the second we are thinking Saskia for a girl or Tobias for a boy. I have northern European ancestory, so we would like to keep that theme going and we aren't popular names people. Any suggestions or thoughts welcome.

Love Astrid, love Tobias, I'm not such a huge fan of Saskia but it does go nicely with Astrid.
Other ideas if you want them:

I love Astrid and Tobias. I've never warmed to Saskia, not totally sure why.
I loved suggestions of Viveka, Petra, and Markus.
Other ideas, though I think sometimes I Russian-ify spellings of Scandinavian names and I apologize for that.

I love both Saskia and Tobias but I think Saskia is a bit too pretty with Astrid.

Just an update. We had a little boy on Tuesday and called him Tobias Leo (Leo is a family name). Thanks for your suggestions, you certainly gave us some names to think about, particularly for girls.

"Hey, come here a second," my mum said as she replaced the book in my hands with a wooden spoon covered in what I prayed was red sauce.
