    If you're willing to go with an Irish name, how about Saoirse or Siobhan?

    Fiona actually means 'White' so that might be a good match.

    Ailpein means blond for a boy.. or Alpin

    Fingal -white stranger
    Finlay- white warrior
    Finnegan- white headed

    Aileen- bird

    Finola- white shoulder

    The name probably represents a Latina feminization of Fionn, meaning "white." However, the word fiona in Gaelic means "wine." It is pronounced FEE uh na, though, not like the name, which is generally pronounced fee-OH-na.

    ETA: Wifes Scottish heritage keeps this info at my fingertips..... Yay Gailbraith Clan!
