Comments and Suggestions Please

[name]Hi[/name] All,
This is my current girl’s list. I would really appreciate some advice, and possibly some suggestions. Thanks. :slight_smile:


[name]Caroline[/name] – a classic - love it! Then again, I named my youngest daughter [name]Carolina[/name] so I’m a wee bit biased.
[name]Guinevere[/name] – I have a test for names. [name]Will[/name] it be butchered by the clerks at the Dept. of Motor Vehicles? [name]Guinevere[/name] is lovely, hope she never dates an [name]Arthur[/name] but if fails the DMV test.
[name]Seraphina[/name] – it’s a lot of name, even for a adult. I’d pass.
[name]Vivienne[/name] – lovely!! It was on my shortlist for my youngest but I couldn’t sway DH.
[name]Maeve[/name] – fails the DMV test.
[name]Briony[/name] – see [name]Maeve[/name]
[name]Mira[/name] – no opinion.
[name]Flora[/name] – I love it, nn [name]Flory[/name]
[name]Eliza[/name] – gorgeous!!
[name]Clara[/name] – love it!
[name]Lucy[/name] – sweet yet spunky.

[name]Caroline[/name] - I like it but don’t like nn [name]Carrie[/name] (seems dated). I would really like this with a spunky, fresh nn
[name]Guinevere[/name] - a little too fanciful for real life imo (my daughter is [name]Gwendolyn[/name] which has similar roots and seems more grounded - at least to me)
[name]Seraphina[/name] - agree with pp that this is a lot of name, and it’s very frilly imo
[name]Vivienne[/name] - I like it but this isn’t my favorite spelling. It’s like [name]Isabelle[/name] and [name]Juliette[/name] to me - [name]Vivien[/name], [name]Isabel[/name] and [name]Juliet[/name] are more appealing
[name]Maeve[/name] - I love it. I disagree with pp - what’s so hard about [name]Maeve[/name] other than the occasional mispronunciation?
[name]Briony[/name] - ditto
[name]Mira[/name] - ok. I like it as nn for [name]Mirabel[/name] too. I also like [name]Mila[/name]
[name]Flora[/name] - like it a lot
[name]Eliza[/name] - lovely
[name]Clara[/name] - one of my favorites
[name]Lucy[/name] - nice but losing its luster due to overuse

[name]Caroline[/name] - [name]Love[/name]!
[name]Guinevere[/name] - Not so much. It seems to mythical to me and prone to teasing. Why no [name]Gwyneth[/name] or [name]Gwendolyn[/name], [name]Jennifer[/name] or [name]Genevieve[/name]?
[name]Seraphina[/name] - [name]Love[/name]!
[name]Vivienne[/name] - Cute, but I prefer the spelling [name]Vivian[/name]. Otherwise I think it’s too close to Brangelina.
[name]Maeve[/name] - I adore this name! Short but elegant.
[name]Briony[/name] - This is okay. I don’t know, I’ve just never liked this.
[name]Mira[/name] - This seems incomplete and/or made-up.
[name]Flora[/name] - Cute!
[name]Eliza[/name] - Cute!
[name]Clara[/name] - Cute!
[name]Lucy[/name] - This name has always sounded too cutesy to me…

[name]Beatrice[/name] nn [name]Bea[/name]
[name]Philippa[/name] nn [name]Pippa[/name]

[name]Hope[/name] that helps!
