How about my questions in post #4 - what kind of meaning do you want? As sockmonkey said, our names have meaning, but people don't usually know other people's meanings unless they ask. My first name means "fortress", which is a protective wall around an important place, like the wall around the Forbidden City, or the wall around Xi'an. But no one knows that! I only know it because I looked it up a long time ago.

If you just want it to sound good, what are your favorite sounds or letters? Do you want some other "L" name suggestions?

About how old are you? In the US, names go through cycles of popularity. I have seen some young children with "old lady" names. They sound nice to someone with no bias, but to us they would be more likely to be our grandmothers' names, so it is a bit strange!

I would like to help you, it sounds like fun, but give me some clues as to what you like by answering my questions!
I am not rich.  :L
