shameless bump

Personally, I'd choose a family name or a name with meaning to you. You rarely use all names together anyway. Both our ds and dd have middle names of family members that we wanted to honour.

(I'm not keen on any of your suggestions but that is just my taste.)

I think Lois goes best.

(and make sure you don't use Sofia grin )

Aya Natalia
Aya Zinaida
Aya Louisa

but especially Aya Zahara

I know a little Egyptian Aya; whether it's a traditional name in her family or culture I don't know, but I think of it as a middle eastern name.

Ayah means maid or nanny where my DD was born

Dineo Thu 07-Oct-10 18:47:52

where was your DD born?

I thought it was Arabic for miracle?....better find out now before DD gets the piss taken out of her!!

I like Aya Leila too- does it work?

Dineo, that makes sense in the family I mentioned. She was a long hoped-for little girl.

Aya Leila is lovely imo.

An ayah is a nursery maid assigned to a particular child in colonial India, maybe still the case. My oldest uncles and aunts remembered theirs with great fondness. I don't know how well the word ayah would be known without a connection to India.

They're two different words, different languages.
