Need a strong and powerful girl name!

Okay my husband and I came up with the perfect little boys name: [name]Dante[/name]! But we really want a little girls name that is just as powerful, unique, strong, but easy to spell and doesn’t sound too ethnic. I’ve drawn a blank. We like the names [name]Makayla[/name]- but thats so flipping popular. We also love the name [name]Kairi[/name].

Any other ideas?

[name]Dante[/name] - what a lovely connection to such a brilliant poet! Very unusual.

Hmm … how about :
Hekate (hek-at-ee) - she was a Titan
[name]Isolde[/name] (is-old-uh) or [name]Iseult[/name] (is-ult) - the love of [name]Tristan[/name]
[name]Seren[/name] (a Welsh name, said sare-en, I think)
[name]Moira[/name] (moy-rah) - the personification of destiny in Greek mythology
[name]Ianthe[/name] (yan-thee) - means ‘violet’ in Greek
Apate (ap-at-ee) - although she was the personification of deceit, and one of the bad spirits released when [name]Pandora[/name] opened the box
[name]Undine[/name]/[name]Ondine[/name] - means ‘little wave’
[name]Verbena[/name] nn Bean - a pretty flower, a strong name
Bia - the personification of force in Greek mythology
[name]Carina[/name] - all names of constellations, and [name]Carina[/name] also means ‘darling’ in Italian.

Good luck!

[name]Dante[/name] and…
I wouldn’t use [name]Beatrice[/name] because of the famous [name]Dante[/name] and [name]Beatrice[/name]. Also would avoid [name]Beatrix[/name].
[name]Leonora[/name] nn [name]Lena[/name] or [name]Nora[/name]
[name]Olivia[/name], but it’s very popular


[name]Dante[/name] and…

[name]Kyra[/name] (keer-uh)
[name]Romilly[/name] (nn [name]Romy[/name] or [name]Milly[/name])
[name]Rory[/name] (or [name]Aurora[/name], nn [name]Rory[/name])
[name]Eden[/name] (nn [name]Edie[/name])

Here are some ideas for you.

[name]Love[/name] the name [name]DANTE[/name].

Some thoughts for a strong girls’ name:
[name]MAIRE[/name] (pronounced “mare”)
[name]SOLEIL[/name] (pronounced “sol-[name]LAY[/name]”)
[name]ANJA[/name] (pronounced “AHN-ya”)
[name]SALOME[/name] (pronounced “[name]SAL[/name]-oh-may”)

I also like your idea of KAILI.

[name]Aubrianna[/name] it means Strong One.

Without looking at others lists… (sone mean “powerful”, others feel powerful, and others still have a “powerful” history)

  • = my favs

[name]Dante[/name] and…

[name]Colette[/name] *
[name]Louisa[/name] *
[name]Topanga[/name] (if you can get passed “boy meets world” its quite gorgeous)
[name]Victoria[/name] *
[name]Athena[/name] (i’ve been really into this name lately!..sounds GREAT with [name]Dante[/name]!) **
[name]Clarissa[/name] *

In addition to the suggestions in my previous post, I echo ricamaca’s suggestion of [name]ATHENA[/name]. It’s funny, I’d thought of it when I was posting last time, but didn’t put it down because, being a [name]Goddess[/name] name, it’s kind of a lot to saddle a kid with. It does sound great with [name]Dante[/name], however, and it’s a cool name!

we chose [name]Willa[/name] for our daughter because we thought it sounded strong and powerful, but with a feminine twist: exactly how she is!
