Why are girl's names so hard to pick?!

So DH and I have decided on the name Constantine Patrick if DC2 is a boy, now to choose a girl's name that we love just as much! We already have a DS called Roman Alexander.

The problem is though that neither of us can think of a single name we love sad The only name we both sort of like is Lyra, but we couldn't imagine actually using it. The middle name is definitely going to be Catherine.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Love Roman and Constantine!

How about Constance for a girl? Or how about Charlotte? Or Athena?

Lyra reminds me of Lycra, sorry.

Lyra sounds made up and doesn't stand up next to Roman.

I think you could get away with Constantine for a girl too?

Athene
Aurora
Beatrice
Calliope
Clementine
Desdemona
Diana
Eloise
Florence
Genevieve

Lyra is beautiful. Why on earth couldn"t you imagine using it?

I think Athena would go really well with Catherine and with Roman. smile

Constanza - Stanzie (Ston-zee) for short, like Mozart's wife.

Lyra Catherine sounds good IMO

Think you need a short first name if you want Catherine for the middle, which is lovely BTW.

Is there any reason you can't have Catherine as a first name? I love it (though we used it as a mn for DD1 - because there is a cousin with the same name).
