I love that name Angela! Our last name is Payne also so we needed the extra syllables too.
Here's a few I liked when naming our daughter (meaning meant a lot to us too so we went with the first one)
Catherine - Pure
Michelle - who is like God
Mercy - Compassion
Sophia - Wisdom
Those are just a few. We had a list a mile long! So glad I'm not going through all that again. Naming a child is hard! They have to live with what you choose for their whole life. Too much pressure!
Don't know if you have made a choice yet - I agree it's worth the work! -She will carry this with her forever.
My two cents: Catherine and Sophia sound great. But I like Michelle because of the meaning along with Eliana -"God answers, Who is like Him?"
You have chosen a very beautiful first name (don't listen to those negative comments!!) and I am sure you and DH will make a great choice for her middle name! How very blessed she is already - what a wonderful family she is joining!
Looking forward to an update and her arrival,
