our chinese daughter vs. she needs a name

If you were adopting a little girl from China what would you name her? My husband and I are adopting a precious little girl from China. We will be going there to bring her home in 7 months. We have a son, Truman Wade, and a daughter, Sutton Rose. She will have a double middle name. We are including a part of her Chinese name. We still want her name to have a Chinese feel. After a flower or a place in China maybe. Name suggestions please!
