    Default Baby girl name

    Hi all
    My husband is Albanian and I'm Aussie so we were searching for a name that works in both languages.. We found out yesterday we are having a girl :-)

    What do you think of the name Zana (pronounced zah-nah) - its an old fashioned Albanian name but I also think its kinda cool as an 'Aussie' name too. Other choices of traditional Albanian names were
    Arta
    Elira
    Aferdita
    Besa
    Albana

    Please be honest with your opinions
    Thanks!

    Zana is really nice. How do you pronounce the other names?

    Thanks guys!
    The others are pronounced
    Arta - art-a
    Elira- Eh-leer-ah
    Aferdita- ah-fur-deeta
    Besa- rhyming with vanessa
    Albana- al-bah-nah

    If it was a boy he would have been Ari (ah-ree) and that one we had both been definite about!
