    I have a Lola. A friend did suggest Lolita but I was very happy with just Lola.

    I suggested Xanthe again to DH and he still doesn't like it. Boo

    In Spanish at least Lola is the name and Lolita the diminutive (meaning little Lola). Like naming your child Ann but calling her Annie. So Lolita as a nickname for Lola is totally acceptable.

    My boyfriend loves Storm. I'm on the fence with it and we have agreed to list it as a middle name. :-)

    I am guessing that Arya from Game of Thrones (tv show) based on A Song of Ice and Fire (book series) might have something to do with it.

    I read Ayla as EYElah so would thing the westernised spelling would be Isla, but these days every name needs to be spelt.

    For example your DD could be Scarlet or Scarlett?

    An Oceanid or an Amazon but not a Goddess as such. Still a gorgeous name though! Popular in that it is well liked, yet not used often.
