Something vs. Like vs. Madeline

I’ve recently fallen in love with the name Madeline but my husband has vetoed it. He went to school with many Madeline/Madelyn/Madeleine’s and we used to have a mutual friend named Madeline (Maddie) and he says that he can’t get past the not-so-great associations. I can respect his feelings however I just can’t seem to find anything else I love nearly as much! Can you give a few suggestions I can share with my husband that I may like based on Madeline? I just feel as though it’s elegant and classy and girly but not too frilly. Thanks for your help! ~Shanna

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.
