Naming a child

I have been given the privilege of naming my two nieces, both chinese and mandarin names

Shovan , well actual irish spelling is siobhan, but for the ease of non-irish speaker, i have modified her spelling is a cute, prodigy ( in my eyes) girl.

Now her sister, i have proposed these names to my brother
Suggestions:

陈欣 (xin)怡(yi) or 颐( yi)
芯(xin)
忻(xin)
歆(xin)

I prefer 芯颐

As for english names, again, an irish name,
Sinead (read as Shi-nead)

meaning God is gracious.
