Just to throw one out there... My family name is Brigit/Brigid which I understand would work well in Germany too? I think I would shorten it to Bree/Brea. Lots of options though!

I think I would shorten Theodora as Thea or Dora.

Friends have a DS Felix Axel.

It's been a while since I read this whole thread so apologies if they've been said or you hate them (and I realize they're both 4-syllable names), but I love Hannelore (although you've already used Hannah) and Lieslotte (DH thinks Liesl is 'the worst name in the entire world -- worse than Floyd', sob).

We're completely set on a girl's name on the extreme off chance this one is a girl, but still undecided on a boy's name -- isn't that the way? Maybe we'll end up with a couple of Theodores born on the same day. :)

So it doesn't really fit any of your rules and I have no idea about its German pronunciation but I think it will go well with M and P...

i just pulled quite a few possibles from this site:

I think they have some interesting names.

I used to know a Swiss German Salome. I really like it.

My (Scottish) cousin living in Sweden has an Ottilia - I didn't like it at first but I think it's really pretty now.

What about Emma? I know you said 3 syllables but it goes well with the other names, doesn't it?

A Finnish friend has a daughter called Hannele, which may be too similar to the middle name you already use.

Boys - Laszlo? I love it. I know it's more French than German though. Thinking about my Dutch family and names they use which work well with both languages - Lucas, Johann, Ferron, Sebastiaan (shortened to Bas which in this country would be pronounce Bass rather than almost like Boss), Maarten. Not much help really. My Mum wanted to call my brother Hugo as it's Dutch as well as English but my Dad wouldn't hear of it and 35 years later she still regrets it.

ETA Lydia for a girl.

Why three syllables? Especially with a long surname?

Just coz the other two have three syllables ending in A. We've set the pattern now.

You guys have no idea how many if the proposed names are already in use in my family. It really does make it tricky but I feel quite strongly that I do not want to repeat names within the same generation. Just too confusing.

Woodsies, I think of Laszlo as primarily Hungarian, no?

Fair enough!

And I definitely agree with multiples of the same name in the same generation! Way too confusing!

I love Alexandra or Alexa. We would probably pick one of these if we ever had another. We have a Matilda too. Eliza or Elsa are great too. Otlilie sounds a bit like where we live.

Just to say that it is possible to get away from Vicky if you don't like it, it's just important for you to pick the shortened form you like early on, there are lots Vee, Vita, Vic, Vix, Tory, Toria. IME if you just say Victoria then people do default to Vicky when they want to be pally although that's going back ten years, people seem much more inclined to leave it as Victoria post Spice girls. At least they're good for something!
