Mae - 8/10. so soft and sweet! [name_f]My[/name_f] favorite spelling too. I personally prefer it as a nn though!
[name_f]Alivia[/name_f] - 7/10. I like the [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] spelling more, but I can see the appeal of the A beginning!
[name_f]Nessa[/name_f] - 7/10. It’s nms, but it’s cute! I like nicknames [name_f]Nessie[/name_f] and [name_f]Essie[/name_f] (though [name_f]Nessa[/name_f] technically doesn’t need a nickname!). I also like the Tolkien association!
[name_f]Alyssa[/name_f] - 2/10. I’m sorry, I’m not a fan of [name_f]Alyssa[/name_f]. I’ve known so many throughout my life, it feels very overused. I do like nn Lissy though!!
[name_f]Sophia[/name_f] - 10/10. beautiful, soft, and sweet. It’s a little popular now, but I never get tired of hearing it!! [name_f]Sophie[/name_f] is the cutest too!

Mae: 10/10 but only as a middle name.
[name_f]Alivia[/name_f]: 6/10 I prefer [name_f]Olivia[/name_f]
[name_f]Nessa[/name_f]: 4/10: I prefer it as nn for [name_f]Vanessa[/name_f]
[name_f]Alyssa[/name_f]: 2/10: known too many [name_f]Alyssa[/name_f]
[name_f]Sophia[/name_f]: 8/10: too popular, I prefer [name_f]Sophie[/name_f]/Sofia over [name_f]Sophia[/name_f].

I love [name_f]Alyssa[/name_f] !

Mae 9 - never gets old, [name_f]Mea[/name_f] [name_u]West[/name_u], classic
[name_f]Alivia[/name_f] 4 - I can’t
[name_f]Nessa[/name_f] 4 - like loch ness monster?
[name_f]Alyssa[/name_f] 3 - sounds like a problem child
[name_f]Sophia[/name_f] 6 - always popular but sweet

I love [name_f]Mae[/name_f].

Mae - 9/10 I love the sweet sound and the spelling

Alivia - 6/10 I don’t often love creative spellings but [name_f]Alivia[/name_f] is nice

Nessa - 9.5/10 this is so sweet and stunning!

Alyssa - 8/10 not my style but I really like it, I actually haven’t known many Alyssas

Sophia - 7/10 I do really like it but it is very very popular

Mae -6/10 cute and unexpected as a fn but does feel more like a mn
[name_f]Alivia[/name_f] -5.5/10 I don’t hate it, but it feels like an unnecessary spelling
[name_f]Nessa[/name_f] -7/10 I like it a lot but it feels more like a nn and not complete enough
[name_f]Alyssa[/name_f] -7.5/10 I love how this name sounds but it does feel dated
[name_f]Sophia[/name_f] -9/10 great name but very popular

Mae 4/10 (I prefer the [name_f]May[/name_f] spelling, but even then I’m honestly not crazy about it)
[name_f]Alivia[/name_f] 1/10 (not at all a fan of this spelling, sorry)
[name_f]Nessa[/name_f] 2/10 (I like the similar [name_f]Dessa[/name_f] and [name_f]Jessa[/name_f], but [name_f]Nessa[/name_f] just doesn’t strike a chord with me)
[name_f]Alyssa[/name_f] 1/10 (I honestly find it dated and it’s just not for me in general)
[name_f]Sophia[/name_f] 1/10 (not sure why, but I’ve just never been drawn to [name_f]Sophia[/name_f]. I do like [name_f]Sophie[/name_f] though)

[name_f]Mae[/name_f] - 8

Mae 7/10
[name_f]Alivia[/name_f] 4/10
[name_f]Nessa[/name_f] 3/10
[name_f]Alyssa[/name_f] 8/10

Mae 9/10 - short and spunky, I love it!!
[name_f]Alivia[/name_f] 7/10 - I prefer [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] but I like that [name_f]Alivia[/name_f] is more unique
[name_f]Nessa[/name_f] 710 - I like it but I associate it too much with [name_m]Gavin[/name_m] and [name_u]Stacey[/name_u]!
[name_f]Alyssa[/name_f] 4/10 - not my style
[name_f]Sophia[/name_f] 4/10 - too popular for me sorry

None of these are my style, but I’ll try to rate them relatively.

Mae ~ 7/10. It’s super pretty, but I prefer it as a nickname. It feels a little insubstantial as a first.
[name_f]Alivia[/name_f] ~ 6.5/10. I really like this, but there’s something about how it looks on paper that deters me a little. It’s definitely pretty, but you would have to put up with misspellings your whole life.
[name_f]Nessa[/name_f] ~ 8/10. Whilst I probably wouldn’t use this as a first myself, it has excellent energy, and I think it’s truly lovely.
[name_f]Alyssa[/name_f] ~ 5/10. Something deters me a little (maybe the y) and it feels a little dated. It’s also the name of a family member, so I have quite strong associations.
[name_f]Sophia[/name_f] ~ 7.5/10. I know this is really popular, but I love its meaning and softness.

Mae 8.5/10
[name_f]Alivia[/name_f] 7/10
[name_f]Nessa[/name_f] 8/10
[name_f]Alyssa[/name_f] 5/10
[name_f]Sophia[/name_f] 6.5/10

Mae- 7/10, sweet and simple, maybe too simple
[name_f]Alivia[/name_f]- 6/10, this doesn’t do anything to separate it from the overused [name_f]Olivia[/name_f]
[name_f]Nessa[/name_f]- 8/10, this is really pretty!
[name_f]Alyssa[/name_f]- 3/10, negative personal associations drag this name down for me but I also find it dated
[name_f]Sophia[/name_f]- 7/10, pretty but so common
