Our first girl!
I'm pregnant with my fourth and I'm (finally!) having a girl. Because I am Ashkenazic Jewish, and we name children after a family member who has passed away, for this little one we are naming her after my great aunt Dana and my husbands step-father Adam. This means that we can use names that start with the letter D or the D sound and names that start with A or an A sound. THere are some exceptions, like different movies they liked or names related to their names, but for the most part that is what we are looking for.
Our other children are Elliot Steven (named after my grandmother Eleanor and my grandfather Stuart), Silas Ruben (named after my husbands grandmothers Esther and Rina), and Miles Lincoln (named after my grandmother Miriam and my husbands grandfather Abraham<- one of the exceptions, think Abe Lincoln).
Some names that we like are:
Delilah, Dorathea, Dorothy, Dalia, Devin, Haven (Dana came to the US seeking a safe haven so this would be fun to use, but we aren't sure), Evelyn (Adam and Eve)
Alina is definitely going to be her middle name.
