Can you make up baby girl names that start with "C"?

I am almost 39 weeks pregnant with my second daughter, and I thought I had a name picked out, but now I'm not sure: CRYSTINA LYVIA ANGELINA was what we came up with after months of thinking and name books and all that. Now, I'm kinda getting past Crystina and Lyvia. We liked Charlotte for a while, but got over it too.

The thing with the C is this:
Arielle, my oldest is Arielle Renata
Ben, our son is Peter Benjamin Guillermo (William in spanish, for my grandfather)
So it kinda made sense to go with a C for our third.

Arielle and Benjamin are both easy to pronounce in English OR Spanish (bilingual/biracial family), so we kinda need something like that too.
Other ideas: Clarissa, Carissa, Catya, Catarzyna (debateful), Caralina, Caterina....

At this point though, I'm even wondering if it's worth the trouble to stick with a C name! Any ideas? Originality is a huge plus! So feel free to make up names too! LOL

Thanks ladies.

Cecelia, Carmen, Cara, Clarissa is very pretty.


Catarzyna is a form of Katherine in Polish I believe and it's pronounced much differentely than it's spelled.

cah-LAY is a name i adore. I'm not sure exactly the best way to spell it (Kale is tempting, but might just sound like the leafy green), but phonetically, i love the sound of it.

Calina or Caleena (they are pronounced the same but the first one is easier for Spanish speakers to pronounce correctly)

Claudia is a very common name used in Latin countries but not so much in North America ... You could also find a name you like that starts with a K and change it to a C .

You might like Camille, I think. My husband named one of the girls in our family by a song title, just don't be waiting until you're looking around the hospital room!

We made up a C name for our newest. My husband wanted the name Carrie but I wanted a more formal sounding name so I asked my friends for advice and one came up with the name Carrigan. I instantly fell in love with it and paired it with Hope. We do call her Carrie though! ;)

My daughters name is Kaydence (it means rhythm), the traditional spelling is Cadence, it does get mistaken for Candence, but I do love her name and we could call her Kady for short! Anyways best of luck!

My oldest daughter's name is Cecily. She hasn't met another person with that name yet. It's unique and I name her after my godmother whose name is Cecilia. Her middle name is Marie after my sister who is her godmother.

First of all you do not need to stay with a "C" name go with a name you like instead of worrying about sticking with a letter. And also do not worry about picking a (bilingual/biracial family - let your child have her own identity without having to put if you will alot of labels and tags on it or stipulations "(bilingual/biracial " ETC.

If you felt strongly about it at first then stick with your gut. I think it's neat. My name is Cherie and I love the name spelling and all. Here are some more ideas: caryn, carlie, crystin, cheryl, candi, courtney, cassidy, catie, cassandra, charlotte, connie, cecelia, cecily, carmen, crystal, cassadina, caliope, caelyn, cynthia, christiana, cybal, catyianna(my favorite). I have helped my sister name her 3 kids and I love this. I have 2 boy Erik(16) and Evan(8), so it is natural for me to love the idea. Please keep me posted. Good luck and many blessing to you and your family.

Now that I think about it my youngest daughter Kyra (pronounced Kira, short i sound) could be spelled as Cira or Cirra.
