It's been a while since I've been here - care to comment on my list and pick your favorite?

[name_f]My[/name_f] list has changed quite a bit. Comments very much appreciated! I’d love to hear what you think of the names and what kind of image they give you. Also pick your favorite if you like:

  • most likely middle name material

Thanks :slight_smile:

[name_f]Sienna[/name_f] - I enjoy this name because it flows so smooth like butter off the tongue. I also get pretty nature imagery and vibes from it. It’s not my favorite, but solid.
[name_f]Emmie[/name_f] - it’s cute, but I find it insubstantial on its own. I feel like the spelling [name_f]Emmy[/name_f] has a little more oomph behind it, but [name_f]Emmie[/name_f] just looks like a nickname and with the plethora of Emilys and Emmas and Emilias, et al. it might be swallowed up.
[name_f]Savannah[/name_f] - Again, like [name_f]Sienna[/name_f], I like this name because it’s just fun to say! It is a tad early 2000s, but I don’t think that’s a bad thing. It certainly doesn’t sound out of fashion, and again you get really beautiful nature imagery from it.
[name_u]Maria[/name_u] - It’s not my personal style but it is a very solid choice that you can’t go wrong with.
[name_f]Eva[/name_f] - Simple but very pretty. I prefer the ee-vuh pronunciation; ay-vuh is very pretty too but I went to school with one and she was annoyed that no one spelled or pronounced her name correctly.
[name_f]Alisa[/name_f] - A really underrated name. It just looks right on paper - I can’t explain it. Maybe something about it starting and ending in A, and alternating consonants and vowels? It’s also pretty but fun to say.
[name_f]Liara[/name_f] - I expected this name to be more popular than it is, because I think it has a really solid yet modern sound. It’s a goldmine waiting to be discovered.
[name_f]Angelina[/name_f] - Princessy and elegant. [name_f]Jolie[/name_f] is a major association, but that doesn’t have to be a bad thing.

[name_f]Lily[/name_f] - cute and solid, nothing wrong with it, just a little L-heavy for such a short name for my taste
[name_f]Aurora[/name_f] - beautiful and evocative. I always imagine [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] as a beautiful, confident, intelligent person.
[name_f]Elinor[/name_f] - This is probably my least favorite spelling of the name but there’s nothing technically wrong with it

[name_f]Anastasia[/name_f] - like [name_f]Angelina[/name_f], very princessy but in a good way. I also have it on my middle name list! I especially like pairing it with shorter first names.
[name_f]Meta[/name_f] - I can see the appeal but all I think of is the prefix/word meta. Metadata, [name_f]Meta[/name_f] Facebook’s new name, etc.
[name_f]Elsa[/name_f] - I kinda wish Frozen hadn’t been so popular because this is a really great name. I think it’s perfect for a middle because right now as a first name it would be heavily associated with the princess but in the middle you get the chance to bypass some of that and still use an underrated name.
[name_f]Ilma[/name_f] - I haven’t seen this before and I kinda dig it. I work with an [name_f]Elma[/name_f] which is not my style, but [name_f]Ilma[/name_f] has this vintage yet modern and slightly international appeal to it
[name_f]Polyxena[/name_f] - a little out there for me and it very much stands out from the rest of your list, but what else are middle names for?

[name_f]Polyxena[/name_f] - a bit too sci-fi for me, but it doesn’t have a bad sound

(Emmie [name_f]Anastasia[/name_f], [name_f]Liara[/name_f] [name_f]Meta[/name_f] and [name_f]Lily[/name_f] [name_f]Polyxena[/name_f] would be cute)
