First daughter: Lots of ideas-- what do you think?

Family is Jewish [name]German[/name]

[name]Avigail[/name] (pronounced like abigail, but with a v)
[name]Miri[/name] (nn for [name]Miriam[/name])
[name]Ruthie[/name] (nn for [name]Ruth[/name])
Teva (pronounced tee-vah)
[name]Veda[/name] (pronounced vay-dah)

[name]Addison[/name] - I like [name]Addison[/name], but it’s become very popular and I think will date badly.
[name]Adelaide[/name] - I’m not the biggest fan of [name]Adelaide[/name], but if you like the cute [name]Addy[/name] nickname I think it’s less trendy than [name]Addison[/name].
[name]Adele[/name] - not my style
[name]Alice[/name] - [name]LOVE[/name]. I think [name]Alice[/name] is so simple, classic and pretty!
[name]Annie[/name] - I like [name]Annie[/name] as a nickname, but prefer [name]Anne[/name] as the full name.
[name]Ava[/name] - Gorgeous, but again, very popular - not sure if that bothers you though
[name]Avigail[/name] (pronounced like abigail, but with a v) - I prefer [name]Abigail[/name]
[name]Belle[/name] - [name]LOVE[/name]. Another one of my favourites!
[name]Blythe[/name] - [name]LOVE[/name] again! Yet another favourite! Soooo pretty.
[name]Caeli[/name] - For me, this comes off as being a bit yooneek in the spelling department, although it is pretty. Have you thought about [name]Calla[/name] as an alternative?
[name]Caroline[/name] - Beautiful, and very classic!
[name]Celia[/name] - I like [name]Celia[/name] a lot, but I like [name]Cecile[/name] even more.
[name]Charlotte[/name] - Another beautiful, classic name, but also getting popular.
[name]Chloe[/name] - I like [name]Chloe[/name], but I don’t love it.
[name]Clara[/name] - [name]Lovely[/name]
[name]Colette[/name] - Not my style
[name]Cora[/name] - Not my style
[name]Daphne[/name] - I like [name]Daphne[/name], but I think any nicknames are not going to be very pretty.
[name]Dylan[/name] - My newest favourite, I just love it for a girl!
[name]Eden[/name] - I’ve always like [name]Eden[/name], but it can sound a little dated.
[name]Ella[/name]/[name]Elle[/name]/[name]Ellie[/name] - Pretty, but VERY popular in all its variations.
[name]Emma[/name]/[name]Emme[/name] - Another meganame phenomenon, although I do love the [name]Emme[/name] variation.
[name]Esther[/name] - I think this is so underused, and I love it.
[name]Eve[/name] - [name]LOVE[/name]
[name]Flora[/name] - Very pretty
[name]Hannah[/name] - My godsons have tons of Hannahs in their classes, and I think it’s already peaked.
[name]Imogen[/name] - I really like [name]Imogen[/name], but with the British pronunciation Im-mo-jin
[name]Julia[/name] - Another classic, although I prefer [name]Juliet[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] - [name]Lovely[/name], but I prefer as a nn for [name]Katharine[/name]
[name]Kaye[/name] - This one’s a bit dated for me
[name]Loralei[/name] - Yet another of my absolute favourites! [name]LOVE[/name]
[name]Lucy[/name] - And another. I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Lucy[/name]!
[name]Lyda[/name] - I don’t like this. [name]How[/name] about [name]Lyra[/name]?
[name]Lydia[/name] - I’m not a a [name]Lydia[/name] fan, I’m sorry! But lots of other nameberryers are.
[name]Mae[/name] - I prefer the [name]May[/name] spelling personally, but I love this as a first name
[name]Maya[/name] - Beautiful, but again popular
[name]Miri[/name] (nn for [name]Miriam[/name]) - I love [name]Miriam[/name] and [name]Miri[/name] is a great nn.
[name]Naomi[/name] - This one’s grown on me a lot recently
[name]Noa[/name] - [name]LOVE[/name]
[name]Ruthie[/name] (nn for [name]Ruth[/name]) - I like it as a nn for [name]Ruth[/name] but not as a full name
[name]Stella[/name] - Beautiful
[name]Suri[/name] - [name]Just[/name] too TomKat for me
[name]Susannah[/name] - It’s lovely, but still associates too much with the song in my head!
Teva (pronounced tee-vah) - I like Teva, but don’t love it
[name]Veda[/name] (pronounced vay-dah) - not a fan, sorry
[name]Zoe[/name] - Again, I like but it’s popular

Whew - that’s quite a list! I think you have some wonderful ideas there, and as I said, I think a lot of my Top 20 names came up there so we obviously have similar taste. You do have a lot of very popular choices there, and since you also have so many lovely (but less common) ideas, I would choose one of those. But popularity may not bother you.

My favourites are: [name]Alice[/name], [name]Belle[/name], [name]Blythe[/name], [name]Dylan[/name], [name]Eve[/name], [name]Loralei[/name], [name]Lucy[/name], [name]Noa[/name].
