We looked into it, and decided on a name that we initially believed to be Latin (and therefore representative of most of Europe as a whole) and it was only after she was born that most of the Older Spanish generation told is that it was an old and somewhat 'unfashionable' spanish name that they were really pleased to see revived (which has resulted in many of them giving my daughter a lot of attention - everybody in the Town seems to know her name ) : Aurelia
Beautiful name, congrats on your daughter.
