Not Too Popular, Not Too Unique

[name_m]Hi[/name_m]! I’d love to get some advice on finding a girl’s name of Italian, Greek, or Latin origin. I’m looking for something not super popular (e.g., [name_f]Isabella[/name_f]) but not too unheard of in everyday life (e.g., [name_f]Philomena[/name_f]). Here are some names I like, but I’m not feeling too excited about them!

[name_f]Emilia[/name_f]
[name_f]Ariana[/name_f]
[name_f]Luciana[/name_f]
[name_f]Liliana[/name_f]
[name_f]Aurora[/name_f]
[name_f]Aurelia[/name_f]
[name_f]Alexandra[/name_f]

Thanks!

[name_f]Thalia[/name_f] comes to mind right away!

[name_f]Jessamine[/name_f], [name_u]Antonia[/name_u], [name_f]Sabina[/name_f], [name_f]Vita[/name_f], [name_f]Tatiana[/name_f], [name_f]Anthea[/name_f], [name_f]Lucia[/name_f], [name_f]Luciana[/name_f], [name_f]Callista[/name_f], [name_f]Carina[/name_f], [name_f]Justina[/name_f], [name_f]Lavinia[/name_f], [name_f]Amara[/name_f], [name_f]Thesally[/name_f], [name_f]Cornelia[/name_f], [name_f]Odessa[/name_f], [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f], [name_f]Evelina[/name_f], [name_f]Gianna[/name_f], [name_f]Gioia[/name_f]

These are names I found on various lists of Latin, Greek, and Italian girls names and the sites seemed good but since I am not from those backgrounds I can’t guarantee 100% authenticity. I hope I hit the right balance of uncommon but familiar!

I adore the suggestion for [name_f]Thalia[/name_f], Jessmine, & [name_f]Calista[/name_f]

If your cautious of popularity I’d be careful with [name_f]Emilia[/name_f], [name_f]Ariana[/name_f], [name_f]Liliana[/name_f], and aAurora

[name_f]Aurelia[/name_f] is my favorite from your list

What about [name_f]Alexandria[/name_f]? Yes i know it’s my name, but it’s way more uncommon then [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f] and a nn can also be [name_f]Ria[/name_f].

If i wasn’t called it personally, i would have [name_f]Alexandria[/name_f] on my list as i do generally love the name and it has a nice ring to it. Or there’s [name_f]Alexandrina[/name_f] which is another variation.

[name_f]My[/name_f] friend recently named her baby [name_f]Ariella[/name_f] which has a similar ring to it as [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f] and [name_f]Aurora[/name_f], and is beautiful.

From your list, my favorites are [name_f]Emilia[/name_f], [name_f]Liliana[/name_f], [name_f]Luciana[/name_f], and [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f]. I’m a nicknamer, so I’m attracted to the [name_f]Emmie[/name_f]/[name_f]Lily[/name_f]/[name_f]Lucy[/name_f]/[name_f]Goldie[/name_f]/etc. possibilities there. [name_f]Emilia[/name_f], [name_f]Ariana[/name_f] (and [name_f]Arianna[/name_f]), and [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] are all in the top 100 in the U.S. (I’m not sure where you are). [name_f]Liliana[/name_f] is close, and [name_f]Lily[/name_f] and [name_f]Lillian[/name_f] are very popular. [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f] is also pretty widely used. That leaves [name_f]Luciana[/name_f] and [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f] as relatively unusual (outside the top 300 and 600, respectively), and I like them both quite a bit! They’re a little bit longer/frillier than what I usually go for, but they both have a lovely sound and I can absolutely see the appeal! I would describe this style as romantic and feminine. Which reminds me of:

[name_f]Viviana[/name_f]
[name_f]Valentina[/name_f]
[name_f]Mariana[/name_f]
[name_f]Arabella[/name_f]
[name_f]Maddalena[/name_f]
[name_f]Adriana[/name_f]
[name_f]Mariella[/name_f]
[name_f]Angelina[/name_f]
[name_f]Sienna[/name_f]
[name_f]Cassandra[/name_f]
[name_f]Camellia[/name_f]
[name_f]Isadora[/name_f]
[name_f]Seraphina[/name_f]
[name_f]Ophelia[/name_f]

I tried to pick names outside the top 100 (and mostly top 200) in the U.S., but everyone’s threshold for popularity is different, so I’m not sure if this is exactly what you’re looking for.
