Brielle Samara vs. Brielle Samara-Medehanit vs. Brielle Medehanit

My Husband and I have been in love with the name Brielle Samara forever. We are adopting our next daughter Brielle from Africa. Her birthmother died from Marlia if she would have had medicine she would have lived. So they named Brielle, Medehanit which means medicine. Will hearing Medehanit remind her of losing her birthmother? Should we give up on our Brielle Samara and keep her Africian name, Medehanit as the middle name? Or share the middle names? Or just keep Samara?( by the way means guarded by God.) We are so confused! Thank you so much for all your help!!!

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.
