Thanks a lot for your messages. Midnightexpress, regarding Amaya or Amaia, at least in Spain its origin is the name of a fortress built in Medieval times in the north of the Spanish Castille region. It is a relatively common name in the Basque country (Basques use the form Amaia).
I like Eleonor, Sibilia and Carolina. The other ones I am neither liking or disliking. Is it true that all spanish girls must have the name Mary first then the next names? I had a spanish acquaintance who was adamant that her sisters were all called Mary Elizabth, Mary Anne, Mary Carmen etc but only used the bit that wasn't Mary ITMS. I am not sure whether I believed her, she was slightly dotty.
Thesecondcoming & Midnightexpress: agree, Ines is lovely and not common at all now, at least in Spain. We didn't consider it up to now, I'll check with DH.
Earshot: thanks for your warning on Aldara!
Ripstheirthroatoutliveupstairs: you were given misleading information regarding Mary- names in Spain. It was common some years (or decades) ago to use those names (I guess due mainly to older generations' devotion for Virgin Mary) but not now actually. And there was never a rule or something like that.
Minipie: actually I would prefer the English spelling for Eleonor/Eleanor; and it could prevent people from calling her "Leo" which is a short name often used in Spain for Eleonor that I don't like very much.
LaTristesse: don't worry, negative votes are as helpful as the positive ones!!!
