Irena vs. Irina vs. Eirene/irini

Eirene is not pronounced ee-reen or eye-reen. It’s actually pronounced as either eye-ree-nee or ee-ree-nee. I’m not sure I want that spelling even though it’s Greek but I want either eye-ree-nee or eye-ree-nuh. Thoughts on either? Middle name suggestions too would be lovely. Thank you

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.
