    Ismailia is a beautiful name and is what I would call my baby girl

    Zoey – I like that it starts with an interesting letter and it’s catchy. Isabella would come a close second.

    Something old-fashioned but quirky that also is a name of something in nature- like Olive or Hazel.

    I regret not calling my daughter Dana, which I had picked out for her before she was born, she just didn’t look like a Dana, so we called her Holly instead.
