An example would be Nadia or Nadine, which means hope if your baby will be born during the Advent season.

3. Say It Over and Over Again

Does a certain Christian baby girl name sound pretty to you? Say it over and over again and include your family name. It must sound pleasing and you must be able to connect to the name when you say it. Ask your spouse, family, and friends if they like the name. Make sure the initials also do not spell out something funny or inappropriate when you combine the name and your surname together.
