Scandinavian Names--help me complete my sibset.

I have strong Scandinavian heritage, and am expecting our second LO. We have a little boy, Oskar Henri (Finnish spelling of both names). Help me think of a girl name to compliment our style. Top runners (but none seem like "the one") are Johanna, Heidi, and Evelina. Thank you very much in advance!

  • Some ideas:

    Maja
    Elin
    Klara
    Tilda
    Freja
    Anneka
    Elga
    Ingrid
    Runa


    I adore Heidi and Evelina is nice too. Johanna is NMS, but there's nothing wrong with it, it's just not my favorite.

  • I like both Ingrid and Astrid. As for the name Elga(not really much used in Scandinavia and I'm Norwegian living in Norway and had to google the name) I would rather go with Helga - the name that Elga supposedly comes from.

June 2011:Provera&50 mg Clomid; Progesterone:0.7 July 2011:Provera&100mg Clomid; Progesterone:3.29 Met with RE:No Clomid response, begin injectables Sep 5 mg Letrozole and Ovidrel in the interim month. Cut out running (was a distance-runner), cycling, eliptical. Restricted to weight-training, walking, pilates. Brain MRI normal. Being physically over-stressed is the reason the body stopped producing prog. Late Sep 2011: Menopur, Ovidrel,& IUI (10.10.11):BFN-Great injectable response: 2 mature, 6 near mature, many smaller; Problem: 9 cysts! Dr: IUI too uncontrolled for number of viable eggs & age.

  • I like Ingrid a lot. And Evelina best from your choices.

    I also liked Anneka. It would go well with Oskar.

  • Astrid is my favorite Scandinavian name, and would totally try to convince my husband to use it if we didn't have one picked out already.
  • How about Kirsten (one of my favorites)?
