[name_f]Alaia[/name_f]- I haven’t researched this name, so I don’t know the meaning or history behind it. I like it, but for your list, I think it doesn’t fit. It sounds a little made up and doesn’t have a lot of spunk. You seem to like unique names, but intriguing ones. I don’t think this one fits those categories.
[name_u]Dove[/name_u]- I love this. I think this captures the “mood” of your list really well. [name_u]Unique[/name_u], but not unheard of. The type of names that a lot of people might consider a “guilty pleasure,” but wouldn’t think badly of anyone who used the name for an actual child. This name has a quiet strength. It’s feminine, but definitely has spunk, and I think it is perfect for you.
[name_u]Fifer[/name_u]- This is gorgeous. As [name_u]Piper[/name_u] is becoming more common, it might not be as attractive (or maybe it is). [name_u]Fifer[/name_u] embodies the cheer and spirit of [name_u]Piper[/name_u] while being a little more unique.
[name_f]Eloise[/name_f], [name_f]Georgia[/name_f], [name_f]Hazel[/name_f], [name_f]Mavis[/name_f], & [name_f]Olive[/name_f]- Because of what I said earlier, I was a little surprised to see these on your list. These certainly aren’t “guilty pleasures!” But now that I think a little more, I understand. These are tried and true names, but they’re not [name_u]Joan[/name_u] or [name_f]Ann[/name_f]. They’re old fashioned but they fit a modern girl very well, all the spunk and ambition of a newer generation, as well as the sweetness and femininity of a newer one! These deserve a place on your list!
[name_f]Willa[/name_f]- I could have included this in the last one, but I couldn’t. I have always been partial to [name_u]Willow[/name_u] and [name_f]Willa[/name_f], but recently, I’ve had a huge crush on [name_f]Willa[/name_f]. It’s simply enchanting and whimsical, somehow strong and sweet at the same time. I could definitely see this name making a comeback, but I hope it stays and undiscovered pearl. This also deserves a place!
[name_f]Zinnia[/name_f]- I personally don’t like this name. It fits your theme very well. However, I have always thought that this is a flower name that “tries to hard.” It’s a little too…something. Very eloquent, I know, but I guess what I’m trying to say is it’s a little too similar to [name_f]Pansy[/name_f] or [name_f]Petunia[/name_f]. A little too frilly. I normally like super frilly names, but this one is trying to hard. It can’t fit in with the classical, tasteful [name_f]Rose[/name_f] because it’s too modern. Yet, it’s not the cheerful, modern yet acceptable [name_f]Daisy[/name_f]. It’s stuck in an unattractive middle place. Still, just an opinion, and this name fits your list, even if I don’t like it.
[name_f]Seville[/name_f]- I love this, it feels exotic yet familiar. I feel this way about another one of my favorite names, [name_f]Vienna[/name_f].
[name_u]Scout[/name_u]- I understand why this has a place on your list, but I don’t like it. I think it will feel dated and trendy too soon. On the other hand, [name_f]Reverie[/name_f] has more dimension and grace, and I like it a lot
[name_f]Lilla[/name_f], [name_f]Liv[/name_f], and [name_f]Lua[/name_f]- I love these, but that’s all. They’re not special, but there’s nothing wrong with that.
[name_f]Boheme[/name_f], [name_f]Bryony[/name_f], [name_u]Fable[/name_u], [name_f]Xanthe[/name_f]- Your unique ones, your wildcards! I like these, everyone, very much. I don’t know if I can say, “use these for your future daughter,” but I certainly won’t say not to use them. They have so much spunk, yet they still have grace and femininity! Keep these!
[name_f]Yara[/name_f] & [name_f]Kaia[/name_f]- I’m normally not a huge fan of shorter names. There are certainly some I love, but unfortunately, not these. Again, these might have a lot of history and meaning, and if they do, I’m sorry, and don’t listen to me. These are similar to [name_f]Alaia[/name_f] for me. They’re sweet, they’re cute. But that’s all.
[name_f]Cecily[/name_f], [name_u]Darcy[/name_u], [name_f]Nola[/name_f], [name_f]Thora[/name_f], & [name_f]Ramona[/name_f]- I love these ones too! These are your “classic-ish” names: classic with a little extra spice. Perfect for your theme, all of them would be good choice for a future daughter.
[name_f]Elowen[/name_f]- Gorgeous, mystical, exquisitely Irish.
I think I got all of them. I love your style and I love your list. You have an amazing style!
