[name]Valerie[/name]: I’ve never liked [name]Valerie[/name].
[name]Yasmin[/name]: See [name]Valerie[/name]

[name]Esme[/name]: I love [name]Esme[/name], too…
[name]Flora[/name]: And [name]Flora[/name]…
[name]Helena[/name]: [name]LOVE[/name]!!!

Sirin (pronounced: See-reen): Ditto…
[name]Sofia[/name]: I think it’s really pretty, but it’s also really, really popular.

[name]Yasmin[/name]: There’s a birth control named [name]Yasmin[/name], and also one by the name of Yaz.

[name]Corin[/name]: I like some of the others more…
[name]Dorian[/name]: I think it’s interesting…
Florin: Florin sounds kind of feminine to me, but I love [name]Flora[/name] on your other list!
