  1. I love this one! It’s currently only in use in Scandinavia I think? No one else has ever heard of it at least 🙂
    It’s at the top of my list of names to use if I stay in Norway. Such a beauty, and a nice change from popular Olivia.
    It’s like a mix of Lydia and Olivia only more intriguing! ^^
