So, my kids will be kinda multi national. My husband is Swedish, I'm Norwegian (we live in Norway), but my mum's family is British. This gives us quite a challenge when picking names. I need some help sorting thoughts out.

My 3 years old twins have double names, where of one of the names of each of them is easy to pronounce in English. Now, for the new baby, I'd really like an English name in honour of my grandmother Sarah. It does, however, need to sound good in Scandinavian too. We don't know the gender of the baby, so suggestions for both a girl and a boy is appreciated!

Do you mind sharing your other kids names? That might help!

Those are the only Scandinavian names I know!

My grandmother was Aili Anna Lisa. She named my mom Miriam Pia. Like any of those?
