Lissa vs. other

I would love to give my daughter an African first name or middle name. I spent five years teaching English in Gambia and up until motherhood was the most special experience of my life. When I decided to leave due to pregnancy, a little girl in my cl[removed]uggested a few names if it was a girl. Lissa was one of them and is a supreme goddess. What do you think of this name for a first/middle name? Any other suggestions? Thanks~ Kay

Genie's Mailbag

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.
