Gillian vs. Works vs. Doesn’t work

I know a lot of people find this name dated and not in a vintage revival kind of way but I like it. I don’t want to use the phonetic spelling of Jillian because I don’t think it will be a problem spelling it with a G. Plus I think it looks better and is more classic. Please let me know what you think of this name. If you don’t like it, can you please suggest something similar in style, or if you do like it, can you pair it with a middle name. Thanks so much from Tess

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.
