As of today…

Today, my top ten would be:

  1. Adelina “Lina”
  2. Magdalena “Lena”
  3. Séverine
  4. Isla
  5. Eloise
  6. Scarlett
  7. Catharina
  8. Madeleine
  9. Sophia
  10. Seraphina “Phina”

My top choices usually vary from time to time, as I will often ‘discover’ new favourites. That’s why the names in my signature change quite a bit. I also really like Theodora nickname Theo - I was torn between the decision of placing Theodora and Sophia in my top ten, but after some thought decided that I liked Sophia more by that one little bit.
