thoughts on vs. Messalina

While in college I had to read work by French man called Baudelaire. In one of his writings, he mentions the name Messalina. As soon as I read it, I loved it. Now that my husband and I are having a little girl we were considering this name. What do you all think of it? It’s pronounced Mess-a-lee-na. Thanks, Carl, Gaby and baby girl!
Which baby name is best?

Genie's Mailbag

Carina in Canada
Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
