Religious or not religious?
My daughter is due the end of February and my partner and I are having a hard time finding name for her. My partner has a son from his first marriage, Sebastian, who was named after the saint. My partner is a devout Catholic while I'm not religious at all. He wants our girl to have a more "saintly" name, such as her brother, in the lines of Teresa, Lucia/Lucy, Cecilia, Anna, Catherine or Claire/Clara.
None of them fit my taste and they all seem just too plain and too traditional. I'm not a fan of creative spelling or trending names, but I really would love my baby to have a name that is more bohemian and unique, such as Petal, Coral, Sabine, Deva, Gaia, Fiamma (saw this in a movie and loved it, my nanna said it means "flame" in Italian), Oona, Neve, Neva, Riva, Artemisia, Malou, Alouette and Noemie... Unfortunately, he has vetoed all of these names.
