My dh is Swedish.We decided we would call our dd to be a Scandi name because his family asked and I happen to love the culture and think their names are beautiful. She is due on April 6th.

I am very keen on Agnetha (keen ABBA fan here and also beautiful name)
Love Agnetha.
I also like Heidi and Seren. Any other ideas? flowers wink

Lena/Lina

These are probably really dated in Sweden now, of course.

There was a Heidi at DDs nursery, lovely name!

Agnetha is very pretty and there are some other lovely names mentioned here.

But surely Heidi is German, rather than Scandinavian, and Seren is Welsh?

Astrid is one of my all-time faves.

I know a lovely Swedish woman called Elna. Love it!
