[name]Madeleine[/name]: love it
[name]Elle[/name]: cute, prefer a longer version
[name]Elodie[/name]: I just can’t see the appeal, maybe it’s because I’m not 100% sure how to pronounce it
[name]Jade[/name]: prefer in middle spot
[name]Audrey[/name]: love, I have an [name]Audrey[/name]
[name]Brenna[/name]: love

[name]Nola[/name]: prefer [name]Nora[/name]
[name]Calla[/name]: very pretty
[name]Ireland[/name]: this is a guilty pleasure
[name]India[/name]: I’m not sure about this one

[name]Elena[/name] - [name]LOVE[/name].
[name]Diana[/name] - [name]LOVE[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] - [name]Don[/name]'t like it on its own, but as a nn.
[name]Grace[/name]/[name]Gracie[/name] - As a first name [name]Grace[/name] is a winner, [name]Gracie[/name] as nn.
[name]Brooke[/name] - Feels a bit dated, but maybe that’s just because of my own association.
[name]Vivienne[/name] - This is growing on me, very pretty!
[name]Madeleine[/name] - I really like this name.
[name]Elle[/name] - I like it, it used be a favourite, but now I see it as nn for something.
[name]Elodie[/name] - For some reason I prefer [name]Melody[/name].
[name]Jade[/name] - [name]Jade[/name] seems a bit iffy to me.
[name]Audrey[/name] - I think its pretty, but I don’t think I would be game enough to use it!
[name]Brenna[/name] - A bit dated to me, maybe its just because I know a [name]Brenda[/name] in her mid-20’s
[name]Cassidy[/name] - [name]Don[/name]'t really like it.
[name]Nola[/name] - It reminds me of [name]Lolita[/name], which isn’t the best association, but I don’t think its bad.
[name]Calla[/name] - Very pretty.
[name]Ireland[/name] - I actually like this place name.
[name]India[/name] - It’s not a favourite, but I prefer it to [name]Indeya[/name] spelling.

[name]Elena[/name]: I’m usually a fan of the traditional spelling, but in this case, I prefer [name]Alaina[/name].
[name]Diana[/name]: [name]One[/name] of my husband’s favorites. He likes it for its Greek history; I like it for it’s British royal history.
[name]Kate[/name]: I find this bland. Your others are much better.
[name]Grace[/name]/[name]Gracie[/name]: Same as [name]Kate[/name]. Bland in comparison to your others.
[name]Brooke[/name]: My mom always liked [name]Brooke[/name]. I think it has a harsh sound. I don’t hate it, but I don’t see the appeal, and the inevitable “[name]Brookie[/name]” bothers me.
[name]Vivienne[/name]: Pretty, but my recommendation would be [name]Viviana[/name], which I think is fun to say because it sounds musical. The -enne ending looks pretty though.
[name]Madeleine[/name]: Not into the [name]Madeleine[/name]/[name]Madelyn[/name]/[name]Madeline[/name]/[name]Madison[/name] trend.
[name]Elle[/name]: Pretty as a middle name.
[name]Elodie[/name]: [name]LOVE[/name] this one. You may also like [name]Eliora[/name].
[name]Jade[/name]: SO pretty. It sounds crisp and cool and refreshing.
[name]Audrey[/name]: A bit too trendy for my taste.
[name]Brenna[/name]: [name]One[/name] of my favorites! So soft and whispery. You may also like [name]Britta[/name] or [name]Brissa[/name].
[name]Cassidy[/name]: This is cute. A bit trendy, but still cute.
[name]Nola[/name]: I like this, but I like the fuller [name]Winola[/name] better, which may interest you.
[name]Calla[/name]: This has grown on me.
[name]Ireland[/name]: Hm. I like the sound of the word, and the imagery is conjures up…but I’m trying to decide if it would ever really “feel” like a name…does that make sense?
[name]India[/name]: Same as above, but I like the sound of [name]India[/name] even better than [name]Ireland[/name]. The -land ending in [name]Ireland[/name] makes that one more of a location than a name.
You may like the name [name]Vienna[/name].

[name]Elena[/name] - I don’t find this attractive at all, I like [name]Elaine[/name] much better.
[name]Diana[/name] - [name]Love[/name] this, it’s so regal but rarely used anymore.
[name]Kate[/name] - So chic and fashionable. I prefer [name]Cate[/name] though, just to mix things up a bit :slight_smile:
[name]Grace[/name]/[name]Gracie[/name] - [name]Grace[/name] will forever be a middle name, [name]IMO[/name]. [name]Gracie[/name] sounds like a dogs name
[name]Brooke[/name] - I love this, but I’m biased as it was a close friend of mine so I have good connotations with it.
[name]Vivienne[/name] - I much prefer [name]Vivian[/name], it’s more too the point. It deffinitely projects Hollywood glamour.
[name]Madeleine[/name] - So french! But still classy and cute.
[name]Elle[/name] - Very fashionable, just like the magazine…
[name]Elodie[/name] - [name]Love[/name] this, it’s a great alternative to the oh-so-popualr [name]Eloise[/name].
[name]Jade[/name] - I would prefer this more as a middle name, but not really.
[name]Audrey[/name] - I love love love the meaning. It also projects Hollywood glamour.
[name]Brenna[/name] - A bit 90s, dontcha think?
[name]Cassidy[/name]- " "
[name]Nola[/name] - I prefer [name]Nora[/name], this seems made up.
[name]Calla[/name] - Not a fan, it just doesn’t sound natural.
[name]Ireland[/name] - I have a cousin who just recently named her daughter this. It’s a great place name and I barely see it!
[name]India[/name] - Go with [name]Ireland[/name].

[name]Elena[/name]: I know an [name]Elena[/name] and the name suits her well, i think it’s pretty
[name]Diana[/name]: It’s alright
[name]Kate[/name]: To plain
[name]Grace[/name]/[name]Gracie[/name]: classic and beautiful!
[name]Brooke[/name]: To harsh sounding, one of my most hated names, sorry :frowning:
[name]Vivienne[/name]: [name]Don[/name]'t like it at all
[name]Madeline[/name]: It’s alright it’s better than the name [name]Madison[/name]
[name]Elle[/name]: Beautiful!
[name]Elodie[/name]: Beautiful!

[name]Kate[/name]- I like it
[name]Grace[/name]/[name]Gracie[/name]- cute but sounds filler
[name]Brooke[/name]- tend to disllike
[name]Vivienne[/name]- love it

[name]Jade[/name]- like it, but I do think that it’s a bit plain
[name]Audrey[/name]- classic and very, very beautiful
[name]Brenna[/name]- dislike
[name]Cassidy[/name]- like
[name]Nola[/name]- dislike
[name]Calla[/name]- I love [name]Calla[/name], but prefer [name]Callista[/name] or [name]Cara[/name].
[name]Ireland[/name]- pretty
[name]India[/name]- not at all, but I kinda like [name]Indianna[/name].

[name]Madeleine[/name], [name]Audrey[/name], [name]Elodie[/name] and [name]Vivienne[/name] are my favourites, they are all gorgeous classics that you can’t go wrong with.

[name]Elena[/name] is beautiful, as is [name]India[/name] and I do like both of them.

[name]Jade[/name] and [name]Brooke[/name] are really dated [name]IMO[/name].

[name]Cassidy[/name] is too masculine for a girl.

I really dislike [name]Nola[/name], [name]Brenna[/name] and [name]Calla[/name].

[name]Elle[/name] is so overdone, alongside most of the other [name]Elle[/name] names.

[name]Ireland[/name] is a beautiful place, it doesn’t make sense as a first name to me but I’m not big on place names.

[name]Diana[/name] is interesting, it seems so dated but I still find it quirky on a little girl and I think it might be because a few years back there was a singer named [name]Diana[/name] Vickers who came about 4th on X [name]Factor[/name] in the UK and she was really hippy and quirky. I think the combo [name]Diana[/name] [name]Lily[/name] is just beautiful.

[name]Elena[/name] - gorgeous, timeless, always charming classic–I loved it in elementary school, and I still like it now (although I have to say, I prefer [name]Eleanor[/name], [name]Eleni[/name], and [name]Helena[/name] to [name]Elena[/name], but I still do love it!). [name]Even[/name] if I grew to love [name]Elena[/name] more than [name]Eleanor[/name], [name]Eleni[/name], and [name]Helena[/name], I doubt I would ever use it–my cousin has a daughter named [name]Alaina[/name].
[name]Diana[/name] - I used to love this in elementary school/middle school. I thought it was so timeless and classic. Now it feels really dated to me, but I can still appreciate it as a name.
[name]Kate[/name] - like it a lot. As a FN, I would use [name]Catherine[/name] nn [name]Cate[/name]/[name]Kate[/name] over just [name]Kate[/name], but I do like it a lot as a name. It’s honoring for me, so it is all over my list as a MN. :slight_smile:
[name]Grace[/name]/[name]Gracie[/name] - another family name for me, and even if it weren’t, I still really love it. It’s charming and timeless no matter how popular it is. I actually dislike the cutesy [name]Gracie[/name] (sounds like the name of a pet to me, too), but I love just [name]Grace[/name].
[name]Brooke[/name] - I can see its appeal, but I know several guys with the name so I can’t really see it as a girls’ name.
[name]Vivienne[/name] - vintage, feminine, charming. I like it a lot for someone else’s daughter, but I don’t really love it for me. I do love the meaning, and the nn [name]Vivi[/name], though. And I much prefer this spelling to the others ([name]Vivien[/name], [name]Vivian[/name], [name]Vivianne[/name], etc.).
[name]Madeleine[/name] - I honestly love it. For some reason, something always holds me back from using it as a FN, but I love it every time I see it, and I adore the French pronunciation (which is almost like MAD-len). It’s so much fun to say in French. :slight_smile: I like that it has so many other nns if you want to avoid [name]Maddie[/name], too–[name]Leni[/name], [name]Dell[/name]/[name]Della[/name], Mad, etc…
[name]Elle[/name] - I like [name]Elle[/name] a lot, but I love [name]Ella[/name].
[name]Elodie[/name] - This is actually the name of my car, haha. Well, I’m trying to decide between [name]Elodie[/name] and [name]Alouette[/name], but I’m leaning toward [name]Elodie[/name], haha. I think it’s sweet, and I like the nns [name]Ella[/name], [name]Lola[/name], and [name]Lottie[/name], but I can’t really imagine using it for a daughter. [name]Hence[/name], a car name. :slight_smile:
[name]Jade[/name] - sorry, this one seems incredibly tacky, stripperish, and dated to me. I honestly don’t see the appeal at all, sorry. I [name]LOVE[/name] the similar-sounding [name]Jane[/name], but I strongly dislike [name]Jade[/name]. Sorry.
[name]Audrey[/name] - love it. It’s classic, it’s glamorous a la [name]Audrey[/name] Hepburn, it’s down-to-earth, it’s feminine (but understated feminine). [name]Every[/name] [name]Audrey[/name] I meet has been delightful. I love it.
[name]Brenna[/name] - I’m torn. I can honestly see the appeal but I don’t love it. I know a teenage [name]Brenna[/name] who has completely ruined it for me, but my cousin named his daughter [name]Brenna[/name] this summer, and she is just a doll, so I might be coming around to it. I don’t think I’ll ever [name]LOVE[/name] it, though.
[name]Cassidy[/name] - Sounds too dated/western-cowboy to me. I much prefer [name]Cassia[/name] as a way to get to [name]Cas[/name]- related nns.
[name]Nola[/name] - honestly, I wish I could like it. It has a fresh sound, but I can’t not think of [name]New[/name] Orleans, and I like [name]Lola[/name] so much more. It’s like, my mom’s favorite name ever now, haha, so I think I’d make her the happiest grandma ever if I loved it, but I just can’t see the appeal.
[name]Calla[/name] - pretty, and I can see the appeal, but I like [name]Calliope[/name] and [name]Calista[/name] more.
[name]Ireland[/name] - honestly, I love it. I know it can cause some raised eyebrows in [name]Ireland[/name], which is why I’d never use it, but I do really like it. If I felt the need to use it, I’d use it as a MN since it seems to cause some raised tempers, and I wouldn’t want my daughter to have to deal with that on a day-to-day basis.
[name]India[/name] - I love it. I didn’t used to, and I know it can be politically offensive to some, but I still really like it and like hearing it. It’s a beautiful name.

Good luck!
