What are some short girl names?


I am looking for some girl names that are short (no more then 7 letters long), don't end in the A sound or doesn't end in A either. I am looking for names for future children. 

I am after names that have a history of use but they don't have to be classic names. Names that don't lead to obvious nicknames are a bonus but not a must. Names can be popular or unusual or anything in between, anything goes.

Some names I like just to give you an idea... Esme, Iris, Vivienne, Maris, Corinne, Evelyn, Genevieve, Rosalie, Clementine, Elodie, Lydie, Cleo.

Thanks for any ideas.

Love the name Mina but I am concerned any child with the name would be teaser Mina meaner.

Ah, the UK non-rhotic accent, where the letter 'r' mostly only still exists for historical reasons. For other dialects of English, such as most of the ones spoken in North America, the final syllables of 'Mina' and 'meaner' sound nothing alike, and your worry about teasing is somewhat perplexing.

Some options:

1. LUMI (Finnish)--snow.

2. CORALIE (French from Greek)--red coral.

3. ELISE (too much history)--form of Elizabeth; (a) god is my oath.

4. EMLYN (complicated.  Welsh mostly now)--about/around [a/the] valley (Of the River Cuch).  Also, var. of Emmeline.

5. ENSIS (Latin)--sword.  Name of a nebula in Orioin.


Alright, tired now, off to deal with other matters.  Good luck.

How about:


Dagmar (pronounced Dau-mar)

Vilde (pronouced will-the like the dje sound)





Lyra ( pronounced lø-ra)



Sorry I'm not a native english speaker so i cant judge if these names are nice with american/british pronounciation (some of the names are french and some of the names are danish, I know lovely people with all of the names so they're not jinxed I promise)
