Help wanted

Hey all. I truly do value others opinions on my favorite names. Sometimes asking family members can hurt your feelings a little. So I’m asking for your help. I trust your judgement, so let me know what you think of these names.

I typically like vintage names and I also love unisex names. I typically prefer names that are not too popular. Opinions and more suggestions are wanted.


[name]Hi[/name], wow, you have a lot of beautiful names there! I’ll give you my very unimportant opinion on each :wink:

[name]Vivienne[/name]- love but jumped on the ssa chart huge this year compared to last. prob because of the brangelina’s baby girl. still in the 400’s i believe but I’m sure it will keep rising.
[name]Juliette[/name]- beautiful
[name]Georgiana[/name]-growing on me lately
[name]Helena[/name]-[name]LOVE[/name] but there are what, 3 different ways to pronounce it? so that might get frustrating for her
[name]Waverly[/name]-[name]Waverly[/name] Place is all I think of
[name]Charlotte[/name]-nice but too popular for me
[name]Claudia[/name]-pretty but means “lame” so if meanings bother you, that’s something to consider
[name]Theodora[/name]-I don’t like anything with [name]Dora[/name] in it
[name]Leighton[/name]-eh, it’s ok
Wilhemina-so cute!
[name]Arabella[/name]-beautiful!!! but the nn [name]Bella[/name] will be super popular
[name]Zadie[/name]-cute and the Z adds spunk
[name]Rosalind[/name]-prefer [name]Rosalie[/name]
[name]Greta[/name]-too old lady for me
[name]Sloane[/name]-doesn’t sound pretty to me
[name]Isla[/name]-very pretty
[name]Shaw[/name]-can’t see on a girl

[name]Isadora[/name](even though I don’t like dora names lol)

You have some really great names picked out, your daughter is one lucky girl! Here are my thoughts:

[name]Vivienne[/name] - very pretty, but I worry about the Brangelina association and impending rise in popularity
[name]Juliette[/name] - another French name! I prefer [name]Vivienne[/name], as [name]Juliet[/name] killed herself for someone she barely knew (despite the fact that she loved him).
[name]Georgiana[/name] - too frilly for me
[name]Beatrice[/name] - like this one a lot, especially with the incredibly lovable nickname “[name]Bee[/name]”
[name]Helena[/name] - doesn’t do anything for me
[name]Waverly[/name] - seems trendy
[name]Daisy[/name] - not substantial enough. Perhaps as a nickname for [name]Margaret[/name] or [name]Marguerite[/name]? (French for daisy)
[name]Caroline[/name] - absolute classic! Also, I love the nickname “[name]Callie[/name]!”
[name]Charlotte[/name] - quickly becoming very popular, and doesn’t have as nice a sound as [name]Caroline[/name]
[name]Claudia[/name] - I don’t like the “[name]Claude[/name]” sound on a girl.
[name]Celeste[/name] - not my favorite. I’ve also heard it has teasing potential with “molest”
[name]Dorothy[/name] - would be nice on a little girl. Nickname “[name]Dot[/name]?”
[name]Theodora[/name] - classical, yes, and I love “[name]Dora[/name]” but I really can’t see this on a little girl. Maybe I’m used to [name]Theodore[/name] on boys?
[name]Leighton[/name] - trendy.
[name]Penelope[/name] - lovely and classic and whimsical. [name]Love[/name] nicknames “[name]Penny[/name]” and “[name]Nell[/name]”
Wilhemina - no thanks. A very sleepy name to me.
[name]Lydia[/name] - one of my favorites. Spunky and beautiful and a classic gem to boot!
[name]Agatha[/name] - too harsh on a young girl
[name]Agnes[/name] - see [name]Agatha[/name]
[name]Piper[/name] - trendy
[name]Willa[/name] - no
[name]Arabella[/name] - not substantial enough
[name]Gemma[/name] - love this one! Also a favorite!
[name]Zadie[/name] - sounds made up
[name]Lizette[/name] - would prefer [name]Lise[/name]
[name]Rosalind[/name] - okay, but she was a really selfish/vain character in Middlemarch
[name]Winter[/name] - trendy
[name]Greta[/name] - prefer [name]Margaret[/name]
[name]Violet[/name] - love this one, but it’s reaching new heights in popularity
[name]Sloane[/name] - not for a girl
[name]Lorraine[/name] - [name]LOVE[/name]. Family name for me!
[name]Isla[/name] - trendy
[name]Shaw[/name] - see [name]Sloane[/name]



I had a few more, but I keep forgetting them! I’ll see if I can remember them.

[name]Vivienne[/name]- love, its cute and pretty but getting popular
[name]Juliette[/name]- another love
[name]Beatrice[/name]- love again
[name]Helena[/name]- I like the balance
[name]Waverly[/name]- not so much
[name]Daisy[/name]- cute, but I can’t see on an adult
[name]Caroline[/name]- like
[name]Charlotte[/name]- love
[name]Claudia[/name]- love again (but I know a wonderful [name]Claudia[/name], so perhaps that’s why I love this name!)
[name]Celeste[/name]- not my favorite, but okay
[name]Dorothy[/name]- cute, but could never get over the wizard of oz reference
[name]Theodora[/name]- like more than dorothy, love dot as a nn
[name]Leighton[/name]- feels to heavy
[name]Penelope[/name]- I only like it cause it has cute nn potential!
Wilhemina- to much of a tounge twister
[name]Lydia[/name]- like
[name]Agatha[/name]-I don’t like the “ag” sound
[name]Piper[/name]- cute, skunky
[name]Willa[/name]- not a fan
[name]Arabella[/name]- like
[name]Gemma[/name]- cute
[name]Zadie[/name]- nms
[name]Rosalind[/name]- prefer [name]Rosalie[/name] or rosalyn
[name]Winter[/name]- cute
[name]Greta[/name]- I like gemma better, greta sounds too harsh to me
[name]Violet[/name]- love
[name]Sloane[/name]- I think its cute
[name]Lorraine[/name]- I have a name like this. I don’t like the way many people pronunce “lor” in the back of their throat. (most modern americans do)
[name]Isla[/name]- its growing on me
[name]Shaw[/name]- I don’t like it

I hope that helps! We have similar styles, so I tried to be more critical instead of saying “I love it!” for most of them! ha!

Thanks everyone. Loved the suggestions.
