Don´t know if DC3 is a boy or girl yet. 2 ds are called Louis & Oscar, so if its a girl, I want a strong, cool name.
Not keen at all on overly girly names Bella, Billy, Milly, Zilly, Bella, Mella, Molly, Lilly, Mia, Maya...you know what I mean! Beautiful for some, just not for me...
So far I like Mimi (family reasons), Clara (my husband is Spanish) and Indie.
Any other clever MN suggestions?

Strong and cool? Hmm

Lana
Josephine - can call her joe
Rosalyn, rosamund - roz
Catherine -cat
Charlotte - Charlie
Samantha- Sam
Danielle - Danny

As you can see I like girls names that sound a bit boyish or can be shortened to boyish as sounds a bit sassy

Indie is not a name, Roxy is beyond naff.

Catherine

Indie is indeed a name - a shortened version of many Asian names Inderveer, Inderjit, Inderpal etc.

Thank you for loads of brilliant suggestions. Can´t believe how many negative comments there have been about Mimi though. I have said 3 times that I like Mimi for personal family reasons (which are actually quite sad) and that I know it is girly!!

Just met a Zuleika. Very strong, cool and different but may not translate to Spanish. She's known as Zulu for short.
