Girly European names

(16 Posts)

I rather like feminine European names (3+ syllables, ending with A) but while there's loads I like I'm yet to find one I love so I'm looking for suggestions!

So far I have

Athena
Seraphina
Greta
Octavia
Flavia
Thora
Paloma
Saskia
Cosima
Marta
Valentina
Claudia
Aurelia

I'd also be interested in how you would pronounce each of these, some are obvious but some could possible be pronounced in different ways. Other than these Europeany names my other faves are Clementine and Pearl.

Laetitia (lay-ti-sia)
Cecilia
Tatiana
Freya
Alexandra
Melissa
Angelina

But apart from valentina, aurelia and seraphina I don't think your names are feminine they are rather strong and some even manly.

That's all I can think of just now! I love Greta and Marta from your list, and Clementine too.
