Greek names, but needs to work in US
Posted 12 May 2013 - 02:14 PM
Pelagia Christine (we would probably call her Pela), and in Greek the "g" is pronounced like a "y."
Hubby loves pelagia, but I am nervous that it's too out there for US consumption.

Lena is VERY useable, IMO.

I would go with Lena personally, since Pelagia is pretty out there (though its a nice name). I would just worry about the whole mispronunciations thing. My name is Greek, and I come across people calling me completely different names all the time. It sucks.
Some other suggestions:
Elena/Eleni (then Lena could be the nickname)
Eleanor (same as up there. Lena could be the nickname)
But anyways, I would go with Lena Theodora (but Lena Christine sounds even better IMO).
