Indian-Dutch family in need of a sibling name! — The Bump
Baby Names

Indian-Dutch family in need of a sibling name!

We live in Amsterdam, I am native Dutch speaker and my husband is an American born Indian.   My name is mega dutch, his is mega indian.  Our first daughter's name is Nel and our second baby is on its way in January, sex unknown.   

If it is a boy we will likely name him Rohan Daan.  

If it's a girl... what?  We like Lennon a lot, but it doesn't really fit?  We also like Nora?   Any ideas?   We also like Indian names.

About me: Daughter turns 4 in Feb 2016... second baby due in mid-Jan 2016!

  • Just a few thoughts.

    Priya
    Anisa
    Daya
    Leena
    Elora
    Serena
    Lola
    Ria

  • I don't think Lennon fits with Nel. 

    Nora fits much better, but I personally prefer to not reuse initials with siblings.

    maybe @DutchLucyLu could be of some assistance?

  • I'm not a fan of Lennon, especially on a girl.
  • My LO is called Rohan too :) (I'm Irish, DH is Indian)

    If he had been a girl we would have probably used Anjali. I'm quite fond of the name Maya too.

  • Not a fan of Lennon for girls, I like Nora and being Indian I am used to siblings all having same initials (don't even bat an eye).

    Names that I like, but are not too crazy Indian sounding are

    Asha
    Anjali
    Aditi
    Layla
    Mona
    Nina
    Neha
    Priya

    Most of them are two syllable, once you get into three or more syllables then your into Annapurna and Udaya territory and it may be too Indian I guess (no such thing if you ask me).
