I’m not particularly fond of [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f], but I [name_f]LOVE[/name_f] [name_f]Evie[/name_f]!

I love [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f] and [name_f]Harlow[/name_f], but not the nicknames for them. I don’t think [name_f]Harlow[/name_f] is long enough to need a nickname anyway. [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f] was on top of my list for girl #1, but I’m not sure what nn I would have chosen. It’s a very pretty name though!

From that set, the only one I really like is [name_f]Arabella[/name_f].

[name_u]Delaney[/name_u] feels very trendy. Like her sisters should be [name_u]Hadley[/name_u], [name_u]Kelsey[/name_u] and Makinzey.

[name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] is fine…it’s just…I don’t know, it feels like a weird mix of snootiness and nunnery.

[name_f]Aurelia[/name_f] is just a mouthful and all I visualize is an aureola…

[name_f]Harlow[/name_f] makes me think of a harlot and [name_m]Harpo[/name_m] [name_m]Marx[/name_m] and ‘hard & low’.

[name_f]Paloma[/name_f] is okay, but my first thought is palomino like the horse and then a fashion design house. The round sound I just don’t find very pleasing…kinda bloated.

If I met an [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f], [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f], [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] or a [name_f]Paloma[/name_f] I would certainly remember them afterwards. My faves are [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] and [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f]. [name_u]Delaney[/name_u] and [name_f]Harlow[/name_f] would be quite forgettable. I’m just not a person who finds the trend of “surnames as first names” very appealing.

I picked [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] because that was almost my name, and I love [name_f]Belle[/name_f] way more than trendy [name_f]Bella[/name_f]! [name_f]Belle[/name_f] on it’s own would be very pretty too.

[name_f]Evangeline[/name_f]/[name_f]Evie[/name_f]: I really like [name_f]Evie[/name_f], but [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] sounds very princessy to me, and I dont really like it.
[name_u]Delaney[/name_u]/[name_f]Della[/name_f]: I like [name_u]Delaney[/name_u] a lot, but I don’t really like [name_f]Della[/name_f].
[name_f]Aurelia[/name_f]/[name_f]Ora[/name_f]/[name_f]Goldie[/name_f]: I really like [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f], and [name_f]Ora[/name_f] is nice, but Hora pronounced like [name_f]Ora[/name_f] means time in Spanish. I don’t like [name_f]Goldie[/name_f].
[name_f]Harlow[/name_f]/[name_f]Lola[/name_f]: I love [name_f]Harlow[/name_f] and I love [name_f]Lola[/name_f], but if you’re going to call her [name_f]Lola[/name_f] why not just [name_f]Lola[/name_f]?
[name_f]Paloma[/name_f]: I really like [name_f]Paloma[/name_f], no nicknames for this one! [name_m]Just[/name_m] [name_f]Paloma[/name_f]. I know a little girl named [name_f]Paloma[/name_f] and her nickname is [name_m]Pali[/name_m].
