3: Arina Aldea a lacului -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Sound most important.

Arina - Romanian Names from the Basarab Line by Jennifer Edwards, known in the SCA as Arina Draguţa (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/arina/basarab.html)

Aldea - Romanian Names from the Basarab Line by Jennifer Edwards, known in the SCA as Arina Draguţa (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/arina/basarab.html)

a lacului - Romanian translation for "of the lake"

Submitter doesn't mind changing Aldea so long as the name remains alliterative and easily pronounced. Submitter is also fine removing 'a lacului', but would like if it could be kept. Ok with changing it if it still is locative to a body of water.
