Greetings from the UK. My case is a bit out of the ordinary and has a few more factors than the normal, so I hope you can help! DH and I have three children, Emmaline (called Emmie), Finnegan, and Clementine, and are expecting our fourth. And when I say "expecting," I don't have a set due date. We are in the process of adopting a nine-month-old beautiful baby girl from Bosnia. Hopefully, if all of our paperwork goes through, she'll be in our arms by September.Anyway, here is where the dilemma strikes. Our little girl's birth name is Dushanka. We want to keep the name in her name somehow, it will most likely be her middle. But we feel that no only is her name impossible to say in the region where we live, but also, our first three are all quite a bit older than the little one (6-10 years so), added to the fact that they are not adopted…. we want her to have a name similar to their's so she will feel included.Names we like off the top of our headsOliviaMaisieKateHannahMatildaIsabelleChloeSophieI feel that while they are all quite English sounding and all that, they are all too plain and common, especially recently, to match with Emmaline, Finnegan, and Clementine. Their names all have three syllables and have a sort of "n" ending that ties them together. I'd love to find a fourth name of that stature that isn't too rhyme-y with Emmaline and Clementine (as they are already quite rhyme-y). Not a big fan of nicknames (Emmie crowned herself— we'd always called her Emmaline) but if the shoe fits….Sorry this is QUITE a tall order, but we'd appreciate the help so very much!(And if there was a name that went well with Dushanka as a middle, all the better)Thanks so muchCatherineP.S. Oh! Almost forgot, our surname is like "Hook," but beginning with a C.
My first suggestion is Imogen. It has three syllables and a prominent N-sound---but without duplicating the -ine ending of the other two girls, and it partially rhymes with Finnegan the same way Emmaline and Clemetine partially rhyme. Imogen Dushanka Hook (IDC); Emmaline, Finnegan, Clementine, and Imogen.
My next suggestion is Adelaide. It lacks an N, but it has three syllables and an L sound like the other two girls. Adelaide Dushanka Hook (ADC); Emmaline, Finnegan, Clementine, and Adelaide.
Next is Josephine. It ends in the same -ine as the other two girls, but with a different vowel sound. Josephine Dushanka Hook (JDC); Emmaline, Finnegan, Clementine, and Josephine.
Next is Marigold. It doesn't have an N, but it has three syllables and an L like the other two girls. Marigold Dushanka Hook (MDC); Emmaline, Finnegan, Clementine, and Marigold.
Lorelei. Similar in style, and three syllables plus an L, even though no N. Lorelei Dushanka Hook (LDC); Emmaline, Finnegan, Clementine, and Lorelei.
Annabel. Similar to Isabelle from your list, but more N; similar to Hannah from your list, but more syllables. Annabel Dushanka Hook (ADC); Emmaline, Finnegan, Clementine, and Annabel.
