number vs. three

We have two older children named Sebastian Johannes (Bastiaan, 9) and Catarina Leticia Mercedes (Catia, 6). We weren’t planning on having any more children after Catia, but we’re pregnant again. I am Portuguese, and my husband is Dutch and German. Bastiaan has a German name with a Dutch nickname, and Catia has a Portuguese (and Spanish) name. We weren’t planning on doing it that way, it just happened, but now we’re wondering if we should continue that for this baby, or if we should combine Portuguese, German, and Dutch names. What do you think? Thank you! ~Gisele

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.
