Not getting anywhere with names! Any help woud be much appreciated smile

Here are some we like, but none are "the one". Can you think of any along these lines? (DD will have Welsh, Scottish, English, Irish & Estonian heritage. Doesn't necessarily have to be any of these though!)

Eira
Sioned
Arianwen
Mhari
Mari
Marianne
Roisin
Sian
Cerys
Carys
Ceridwen
Etta
Esme

For DS I read 8 baby names books before finding "the one". His name is Scottish and fairly unusual in the UK, although the Irish version is pretty well known in Ireland.

Just done one book so far this time! Can you save me from having to read the other 7?!

minkembra - don't forget Donaldina, Douglasina, Angusina and Hamishina - all names I came across when doing a job that involved a lot of Highland customers - I am sure there were more but as it was nearly 30 years ago, they have slipped my mind smile

I know a Scottish Gaelic woman called Eoina (pronounced Ee-O-na). I love this name.

Also like Shona and there are some Gaelic spellings of this I think (Seonaidh?).

[Grin] at Jamesina, Douglasina etc

DP's ancestors are lowlands IIRC so, much as I'd like to, I think I'll have to give those names a miss wink
