Page 2 | Want a short but pretty girls name

My Dd is due in 6 weeks and DH and I cannot settle on a name for her.

I want something that isn’t top 10 and ideally is a one or two syllable name as we have quite a long surname.

Any ideas?

Lily
Daisy
Grace
Mae
Eve
Alice

All too popular I think.

I grew up with a top 10 name. One of 2-3 in each primary class and one of 6 in secondary school year group. I’m Brno looking for “yoonique” just not quite so popular as my name was.

Bea.
Doesn't get shorter than that! Tess is also nice.
Altho my own name is one syllable - as is my surname- and would have preferred a longer name. Is the surname two syllables or more?

I saw this thread and the name Freya came into my mind.

I thought Mia, I think that's a really pretty name. We have a Josephine but she's always Josie, a pretty name that suits her whilst she's still little

Came on to say April. It's my favourite at the moment. Don't think anyone else has suggested it.

Thanks so much! Some really lovely suggestions here. My mind was completely drawing a blank.
We actually have 4 syllables in the surname so the shorter and punchier the first name the better in my opinion.
At first glance I like, and hadn’t even thought of, Tess, Lara, Nina and Wren.
Thanks all! Happy to see suggestions keep coming flowers
