Not so keen on Alyssa (or any "issa" names - they were too ubiquitous where I grew up in the 80s).

Alta I like.

Other names I like (this week) that might do it for you...

Arden
Malin (I had a thread on it and it was almost universally disliked, but at least it is not too popular!!)
And I still love Hero (but it is shocking with our last name), so you should of course help yourself!

Well if it is your granny's name that is more of a reason to use it IMO.

Alta is nice with a short A, otherwise sounds like something you'd find in a church.

Nina is nice too, I think.

Tess - i love dd2's name apart from when people call her Tessa.

MrsHappy Fri 26-Jun-09 14:37:08

Abra is nice and not common.

There's a character called Abra in "East of Eden".

Just thought - I personally am not keen on names ending the same .. wouldn't want Myla and Alta. It's a bit twee for me.

Also, not keen when people use same letter at the start of a name for all of their children .. I know someone with 4 children and they all start with "M"!

i so wanted that for BabyG

but he's a boy
