    Hellooo everybody!

    I need some help finding suitable names for a girl. I don't really know what I'm having yet but I don't really have any girls names so I want to make sure I choose some sooner than later.

    Also I don't know whether to give her an "American" name or an Asian one. I do want her to have a name that isn't totally alien to her heritage, though she will be 1/4th White on my side.

    When I was with my Eastern European ex I had picked out a bunch of Eastern European names, that's also why I need new ideas :blush:

    But maybe I should choose a regular name and let my BF choose a Chinese one for her as well, which he has both himself... so I guess feel free to contribute any name that you think would be good :)

    I actually like the name "Juanita" for some reason, I think it's cute lol.

    I also like Gianna as in "Gianna Marie."

    I used to like "Jackie" a lot but I ended up naming my cat that so that might be a bit weird LMAO!

    Oh and my mom likes the name Constanze (it was going to be my sister's name if I ever had one) but it does sound a bit... German, still I'm considering it, haha.

    Thoughts? :)

    Thanks Ruby! Those are some really nice names :flower:

    Yeah Gianna is a really nice name, I am part Italian so I guess it wouldn't be so far off to name my kid that. I also like Kaylani and Kiara, really cute :)

    I like the name Keiko too but I'm afraid it might not be a great idea to choose a Japanese origin name since my BF is Chinese and I dunno how his family feels about the Japanese. I think they're pretty open minded but you never know about this type of thing LOL

    Hi Kiwi! I meant East Asian, I probably should have wrote that 'cause I heard that in the UK Asian=Indian, right? Here in the U.S. it's the opposite (Asian=East Asian) LOL. I do like Indian origin names though, so I might consider one anyway :)

    I am in New Zealand and when Asian is said, I would think Chinese or Japanese, but figure I needed to clarify. Seems you would be after more Chinese names than Japanese so here are ones I've found that I like:
    Li Mei (or just Mei) (meaning beautiful)
    Mulan
    Lei (meaning thunder)
    You could change the spelling to make it look more "english". Honestly, Chinese names are hard to find!
