Fresh ideas

Hey guys! Here’s my top girls list. I’d describe my naming style as nature based, mythological, literay, and whimsical. I usually lean towards names of Greek and Northern European origin, but I don’t really follow strict guidelines. What names would you suggest? Combos are welcome too! Really whatever you want, I’d just like some fresh ideas.

[name_f]Acacia[/name_f], Alexandra/Alexandria, [name_f]Ariadne[/name_f], [name_f]Calanthe[/name_f], [name_f]Clio[/name_f], [name_f]Clover[/name_f], [name_f]Demetria[/name_f], [name_f]Elowen[/name_f], [name_f]Ianthe[/name_f], [name_u]Indigo[/name_u], [name_f]Ione[/name_f], [name_f]Juliette[/name_f], [name_u]Juno[/name_u], [name_u]Lark[/name_u], [name_f]Lyra[/name_f], [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f], [name_u]Sage[/name_u], [name_f]Saskia[/name_f], [name_u]Scout[/name_u], [name_f]Suki[/name_f], [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f], [name_f]Theodora[/name_f], [name_u]Willow[/name_u], [name_u]Winter[/name_u], [name_u]Wren[/name_u]

Names in limbo between top list and GP list: [name_f]Arianwen[/name_f], [name_f]Audra[/name_f], [name_f]Freya[/name_f], [name_f]Hermione[/name_f], [name_f]Persephone[/name_f]

Our taste borders on the same. I’ve enjoyed expanding and editing my personal top 50 just for fun for many years.

[name_f]Saskia[/name_f] has been there for more than 20. [name_f]Ariadne[/name_f], [name_f]Clover[/name_f], [name_f]Ione[/name_f], and [name_u]Winter[/name_u] have made long-running appearances. I’ve toyed with [name_f]Calanthe[/name_f] but never added it, while [name_f]Xanthe[/name_f], [name_f]Ianthe[/name_f], and [name_f]Evanthe[/name_f] also made long appearances. I adore [name_f]Thea[/name_f], [name_f]India[/name_f], and [name_f]Juliet[/name_f], so [name_u]Indigo[/name_u] and [name_f]Juliette[/name_f] get a big yes, and [name_f]Theodora[/name_f], some consideration.
