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.

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.
