Sorry, but all I can think of (and this will show my age) is the Mallen Streak - Catherine Cookson books. The Mallens had dark hair, but with a streak of white in it.

sniffle I really like Linnea, Liv and Sigurd. Really attracted to Scandinavian names, but have no scandi roots. Do you think that matters?

Sigrid! Not Sigurd.

Malone Head is the most northerly point in Ireland, so you could try looking at a map of Ireland for place name-inspired names, if you liked the sound of Malin. The place is pronounced Mal-in, with emphasis on the first syllable. Unlike lots of Irish words ending with -in, it's simply "in" rather than "-een". I think it sounds lovely. I'm not familiar with Malin as a given name, is it pronounced the same?

Blasted auto correct - Malin Head, not Malone.

I like it. I know a 3 year old whose middle name is Malin, as this is the sea area where his father used to sail with his father. I love the reason for the name, but I also like the name itself.
