Easy vs. Russian vs. Names!

Hey, our first child is coming soon & we still haven’t found names! My husband is from Russia and it’s very important to him that we use Russian names, however I still want them to be easy to pronounce in English since we live in the United States. We are using Vladimir and Natalia as middle names (after a few family members). Do you know of any names that fit what we are looking for? Thanks, Ilya and Ellie

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.
