Delphine 7/10 - love, but a little awkward in [name_f]English[/name_f]
[name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] 1/10 - not personally a fan
[name_f]Leonie[/name_f] 7/10 - love!
[name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] 2/10 - not for me and just kind of boring imo
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] 8.5/10 - love!
[name_f]Lucy[/name_f] 6/10 - love!
[name_f]Eliza[/name_f] 6/10 - love!
[name_f]Theadora[/name_f] 1/10 - just really not a fan of this spelling. [name_f]Theodora[/name_f] would get 7/10.
[name_f]Zephyra[/name_f] 3/10 - not for me
[name_f]Selah[/name_f] 8/10 (say-la pronunciation) - loove!

Lucy is too nicknamey. [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] as well but with the singer it’s less so. [name_f]Leonie[/name_f], [name_f]Zephyra[/name_f], and [name_f]Selah[/name_f] are iffy. The rest are very pretty and strong. It’s a good list.

Delphine-4/10 not my fave name but I can see why people like it
Evangeline-6/10 really cute name that makes me think of Princess and the Frog!
Leonie-4/10 I’m pretty neutral on this name but I don’t particularly like it
Vivienne-9/10 LOVE this name and it’s spelling
Josephine-9/10 Love this one so much too! So many cute nn and a beautiful classic
Lucy-8/10 I just love this one, and it has been a fave for years
Eliza-9/10 Really big recent love of mine, but it really brightens up Elizabeth to me
Theadora-6/10 I love nn Thea and I think this is a classic that can definitely come back
Zephyra-6/10 Never really heard of this one but I like it! Would love to meet a little girl with this name!
Selah-6/10 Similar to above where I would love to meet someone with this name!

Delphine is pretty and has many nickname options.
[name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] is very feminine and somewhat dramatic with again many options for shortening.
[name_f]Eliza[/name_f] is spunky and quite fun.
[name_f]Theadora[/name_f] isn’t my fav, but gosh I love “[name_m]Teddie[/name_m]” so it stays for me!
Those are my favorites from your list.

Gorgeous list! [name_f]Delphine[/name_f] and [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] are my favorites, I have both of those on my list as well. :slightly_smiling_face:

I have a soft spot for [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] cuz I’m a 90s kid (The [name_u]Wild[/name_u] Thornberry). It makes me think of a kind, strong, independent, intelligent girl.

My favorites from your list are [name_f]Theadora[/name_f] and [name_f]Zephyra[/name_f]. I like how they sound and that you don’t hear them every day.

Josephine is on my “feminist girl names” list for [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_m]Butler[/name_m]. I also love the nn [name_u]Joey[/name_u] for a girl.

The others are nice, but don’t stand out to me.

#10 - [name_f]Selah[/name_f]. The Biblical association is just not for me.
#9 - [name_f]Zephyra[/name_f]. The spelling/pronunciation throws me but I think it could be very cool on the right little girl.
#8 - [name_f]Lucy[/name_f]. Cute but so popular.
#7 - [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f]. Beautiful but exploding in popularity still I think.
#6 - [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f]. See [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f].
#5 - [name_f]Theadora[/name_f]. Like it.
#4 - [name_f]Josephine[/name_f]. Like it.
#3 - [name_f]Leonie[/name_f]. So cute on a baby but sophisticated on a woman; like the meaning, wonder if pronunciation would be a problem.
#2- [name_f]Delphine[/name_f]. So pretty, unusual, love the meaning.
#1- [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]. [name_u]Love[/name_u] this name - instantly I think of [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] [name_m]Bennet[/name_m]. It’s classic yet underused.

Delphine 7/10 – So chic and unexpected!
[name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] 6/10 – This name has such a charming, Southern [name_f]Belle[/name_f] vibe.
[name_f]Leonie[/name_f] 2/10 – I personally don’t care for the sounds of this one, but that’s just me.
[name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] 7/10
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] 8/10 – [name_u]Love[/name_u] this Victorian classic.
[name_f]Lucy[/name_f] 9/10
[name_f]Eliza[/name_f] 6/10 – This is such a lively, sweet name for a girl!
[name_f]Theadora[/name_f] 4/10 – Though I’m pretty neutral on the name, I actually really like this spelling!
[name_f]Zephyra[/name_f] 2/10 – This just looks a little confusing, tbh.
[name_f]Selah[/name_f] 4/10

Hard Nos:
[name_f]Evangeline[/name_f]: sounds like evangelical sect of Christianity; really weird for a name in my opinion
[name_f]Delphine[/name_f]: sounds like dolphin
[name_f]Zephyra[/name_f]: the Z F and R sounds together just don’t flow for me. Also looks crowded and busy on paper and sounds like a Greek goddess in not a good way

  1. Eliza (love!)
  2. Lucy (love!)
  3. Theadora ([name_f]Thea[/name_f] adorable for nn)
  4. Josephine ([name_u]Josie[/name_u] adorable for nn)
  5. Vivienne (classic)
  6. Leonie (cute for a nn but I would give them a more formal first name)
  7. Selah (doesn’t do anything for me, sounds made up, but not a hard no like the others above)

I agree on [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f].

Delphine means dolphin lol some people like it because they want a name that’s reminiscent of the ocean :desert_island:

Delphine- 8/10, sleek and feminine
[name_f]Evangeline[/name_f]- 6/10, it’s a bit much for me but not a bad name
[name_f]Leonie[/name_f]- 7/10, I want to like this but something about it feels off. I love it for others though
[name_f]Vivienne[/name_f]- 9/10, beautiful
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f]- 4/10, this has always felt too frumpy for me
[name_f]Lucy[/name_f]- 7/10, it’s sweet but doesn’t wow me
[name_f]Eliza[/name_f]- 7/10, same as [name_f]Lucy[/name_f]
[name_f]Theadora[/name_f]- 4/10, this spelling just doesn’t look right but the name is fine. [name_f]Theodora[/name_f] would’ve been 7/10
[name_f]Zephyra[/name_f]- 8/10, super cool!
[name_f]Selah[/name_f]- 9/10, love this

[name_f]Delphine[/name_f] 10/10 I adore this name!
[name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] 7/10 not my personal favorite but still a beautiful name.
[name_f]Leonie[/name_f] 9/10 another great choice! I little more unexpected.
[name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] 8/10 I love [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] and prefer this spelling for girls.
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] 8/10 I worry about the trendiness of this one but it’s still well outside of the top 50 for now.
[name_f]Lucy[/name_f] 5/10 very nicknamey compared to the rest of the list.
[name_f]Eliza[/name_f]- 8/10 this feels more like a variant than a diminutive so it doesn’t come off as nicknamey as [name_f]Lucy[/name_f].
[name_f]Theadora[/name_f] 3/10 I looove [name_f]Theodora[/name_f] though.
[name_f]Zephyra[/name_f] 7/10 I prefer [name_f]Zephrine[/name_f] but [name_f]Zephyra[/name_f] is a lovely name. I prefer it so similar sounding names like [name_f]Sapphira[/name_f] and [name_f]Seraphina[/name_f].
[name_f]Selah[/name_f] 5/10 there’s nothing wrong with this name, I’m just personally not a fan.

[name_f]Leonie[/name_f] - 9/10. [name_u]Love[/name_u] this. Pretty and unique

[name_f]Eliza[/name_f] - 8/10. Definitely an underused name. [name_u]Love[/name_u] it
[name_f]Theadora[/name_f] - 4/10. I would think this is a typing error that was meant to be [name_f]Theodora[/name_f] - which is a name I actually love. And [name_f]Thea[/name_f] is a great nickname
[name_f]Zephyra[/name_f] - 2/10. A bit too eccentric for me
[name_f]Selah[/name_f] - 1/10. Not a fan
