Thoughts on my Top 20?

I’m am really excited right now, because I have officially established a Top 20 list of girls names. It’s the longest proper girls list I have ever made. :slight_smile: I have middle for some, but feel free to suggest any combos, I’m open to pretty much anything.

[name_f]Rosi[/name_f] (prn with a short o, like [name_m]Rossy[/name_m] more than [name_f]Rosie[/name_f], if that makes sense)

Tell me what you think! :slight_smile:

Oooh, I love [name_f]Audrey[/name_f], [name_f]Augusta[/name_f], [name_f]Enid[/name_f], [name_f]India[/name_f], [name_f]Miranda[/name_f], [name_f]Natalie[/name_f], [name_f]Rhiannon[/name_f], and [name_f]Stephanie[/name_f]!

Some middle ideas:

[name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_f]Florence[/name_f]
[name_f]Augusta[/name_f] [name_u]Evelyn[/name_u]
[name_f]Enid[/name_f] [name_f]Katharine[/name_f]
[name_f]India[/name_f] [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f]
[name_f]Miranda[/name_f] [name_f]Eloise[/name_f]
[name_f]Natalie[/name_f] [name_f]Miriam[/name_f]
[name_f]Rhiannon[/name_f] [name_f]Lucy[/name_f]
[name_f]Stephanie[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f]
[name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_f]Lucinda[/name_f]
[name_f]Augusta[/name_f] [name_f]Hermione[/name_f]
[name_f]Enid[/name_f] [name_f]Florence[/name_f]
[name_f]India[/name_f] [name_f]Katharine[/name_f]
[name_f]Miranda[/name_f] [name_f]Aveline[/name_f]
[name_f]Natalie[/name_f] [name_f]Olive[/name_f]
[name_f]Rhiannon[/name_f] [name_f]Daisy[/name_f]
[name_f]Stephanie[/name_f] [name_f]Maryam[/name_f]

[name_f]Annette[/name_f] - Not a fan of [name_f]Ann[/name_f]-names usually but [name_f]Annette[/name_f] is one I enjoy; I think of [name_u]Reese[/name_u] Witherspoon in Cruel Intentions.
[name_f]Audrey[/name_f] - Not a favorite of mine, but it’s all right. I see why people like it.
[name_f]Augusta[/name_f] - This name feels very regal. I like it.
[name_f]Bette[/name_f] - I think of [name_f]Bette[/name_f] Midler. Not a great association for me, and if you’re going for [name_f]Bet[/name_f]-ee pron. then I’d rather see [name_f]Betty[/name_f]/[name_f]Bettie[/name_f] as the spelling.
[name_f]Enid[/name_f] - I like it. It’s funky and an unexpected choice, but not over the top.
[name_f]Imogene[/name_f] - Prefer [name_f]Imogen[/name_f] (im-uh-jin), [name_f]Imogene[/name_f] feels a little too granny to me.
[name_f]India[/name_f] - [name_u]Love[/name_u] [name_f]India[/name_f], it’s floating somewhere around my list as well.
[name_f]Inez[/name_f] - I like [name_f]Inez[/name_f], it feels like it has a lot of personality.
[name_u]Joss[/name_u] - It’s all right. I grew up with a male [name_u]Joss[/name_u] so it feels slightly more boy to me, I suppose.
[name_u]June[/name_u] - Very pretty, but prefer as a middle name.
[name_u]Marian[/name_u] - I think [name_u]Marian[/name_u] is very pretty. It’s not something I’d go for myself but I’d love to meet a little [name_u]Marian[/name_u].
[name_f]Miranda[/name_f] - I like this. It’s not exotic by any means, but it has a certain spirit to it that I enjoy.
[name_f]Muriel[/name_f] - Still a bit too old-lady for me, but the sound of the name seems pleasant.
[name_f]Natalie[/name_f] - A nice name. I like how it sounds. [name_f]My[/name_f] cousin named her eldest daughter this.
[name_f]Nell[/name_f] - I love [name_f]Nell[/name_f], it’s very sweet.
[name_f]Rosi[/name_f] - [name_m]Reading[/name_m] this name, the pronunciation is confusing to me, but I think if I actually heard it said, it wouldn’t be much trouble to remember it. Personally though this name is not my style. And feels a bit different in style from some of the others on this list.
[name_f]Rhiannon[/name_f] - Very cool name and interesting namesake.
[name_f]Stephanie[/name_f] - Feels very blah to me as I grew up with a lot of Stephanies.
[name_f]Suzy[/name_f] - Too cutesy [name_f]Americana[/name_f] for me personally.
[name_f]Winifred[/name_f] - I like it, prefer other [name_u]Win[/name_u]- names, but [name_f]Winnifred[/name_f]'s all right. [name_u]Love[/name_u] potential nickname [name_f]Winnie[/name_f].

[name_f]Lovely[/name_f] list! Whilst there is no distinct style I definitely have a similar ‘‘feel’’ of them all - they’re all so down to [name_f]Earth[/name_f] and versatile, deeply rooted in history but timeless and definitely all have very mid-summer vibes to me.

[name_f]Annette[/name_f] - not my thing personally, I’d love to meet a little [name_f]Annette[/name_f] though
[name_f]Audrey[/name_f] - I think this is pretty, I’ve never really understood the huge hype around it but definitely appreciate it
[name_f]Augusta[/name_f] - I adore this, so gorgeous
[name_f]Bette[/name_f] - again, I love this (but I literally love all short B names). [name_f]Bette[/name_f] [name_m]Davis[/name_m] reference is amazing.
[name_f]Enid[/name_f] - I love how this sounds sweet and Welsh, but is equally story-book witch (not a bad thing imo). I love the [name_f]Enid[/name_f] Blyton reference too.
[name_f]Imogene[/name_f] - Not a fan at all, I love [name_f]Imogen[/name_f] though.
[name_f]India[/name_f] - I lean to the very opposite side on the cultural-appropriation issue so would never sue this.
[name_f]Inez[/name_f] - [name_f]Lovely[/name_f], sweet, understated.
[name_u]Joss[/name_u] - Nice, perfectly usable though there isn’t much too it.
[name_u]June[/name_u] - the imagery here always seemed way too… washed out(?) for me. I don’t know, just feels too squeeky and yellow, a bit icky.
[name_u]Marian[/name_u] - Very masculine. I don’t hate it but it’s not my thing. I like [name_f]Marin[/name_f]/[name_f]Maren[/name_f].
[name_f]Miranda[/name_f] - Pretty and summery, but I think of [name_f]Miranda[/name_f] [name_m]Hart[/name_m] which isn’t a positive assosiation to me.
[name_f]Muriel[/name_f] - I actually love this.
[name_f]Natalie[/name_f] - not my thing. I guess I see the appeal.
[name_f]Nell[/name_f] - Pretty.
[name_f]Rosi[/name_f] - I like it. It’s very versatile, equal parts tomboy and pricness.
[name_f]Rhiannon[/name_f] - I adore this, and actually I really like just [name_f]Rhianna[/name_f] too.
[name_f]Stephanie[/name_f] - I dislike this. Like [name_u]June[/name_u], it’s just weirdly uncomfortable feeling to me.
[name_f]Suzy[/name_f] - [name_u]LOVE[/name_u]! I really love seeing this. I’d probably use [name_f]Susie[/name_f] but I think it’s brilliant.
[name_f]Winifred[/name_f] - Gorgeous, and sweet spirited. [name_u]Win[/name_u] is cute.

I would add to your list, following my perception of it: [name_f]Alberta[/name_f], [name_f]Fay[/name_f], [name_f]Bess[/name_f], [name_f]Miriam[/name_f], [name_f]Gillian[/name_f], [name_f]Dahlia[/name_f], [name_f]Polly[/name_f], [name_f]Sibyl[/name_f], [name_f]Allegra[/name_f] and [name_f]Maisie[/name_f].

[name_f]My[/name_f] favourites are [name_f]Annette[/name_f] & [name_f]Imogene[/name_f].

I love:


wdyt of [name_f]Zelda[/name_f]???

I like [name_f]Bette[/name_f], [name_f]India[/name_f], [name_u]Marian[/name_u], [name_f]Rhiannon[/name_f] and [name_f]Winifred[/name_f].

[name_m]Just[/name_m] a little thought if you like [name_u]Marian[/name_u], have you considered [name_f]Miriam[/name_f] or [name_f]Myriam[/name_f]? I like [name_f]Rosi[/name_f] as a nickname for [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f]. I also love [name_f]Inez[/name_f] and am still trying to decide if I prefer the S or Z ending. X

Thanks everyone!

[name_f]Lani[/name_f] - [name_f]India[/name_f] [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f], [name_f]Natalie[/name_f] [name_f]Miriam[/name_f], [name_f]Enid[/name_f] [name_f]Florence[/name_f] & [name_f]Rhiannon[/name_f] [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] are great, thank you!

@oliviasarah - I really like [name_f]Alberta[/name_f], [name_f]Miram[/name_f] & [name_f]Gillian[/name_f]. :slight_smile:

@berryfan - I like [name_f]Zelda[/name_f], but I don’t love it. I actually met a little [name_f]Zelda[/name_f] a few years ago, she was so cute!

@gertielee - (I love your username, by the way) I love [name_f]Miriam[/name_f], but I’ve always thought it might be a little too close to [name_u]Marian[/name_u].

These are my favourites from your list:

[name_f]Bette[/name_f]- (if said [name_f]Bet[/name_f], not [name_f]Betty[/name_f])
[name_f]Rosi[/name_f] (prn with a short o, like [name_m]Rossy[/name_m] more than [name_f]Rosie[/name_f], if that makes sense)
[name_f]Winifred[/name_f]- I think this is very sweet.

[name_f]Augusta[/name_f] is my favourite overall.

[name_m]How[/name_m] about:
[name_f]Aphra[/name_f], [name_f]Annalie[/name_f], [name_f]Amity[/name_f], [name_f]Hedy[/name_f], [name_f]Hettie[/name_f], [name_f]Etta[/name_f], [name_f]Mercy[/name_f], [name_u]Dagny[/name_u] and [name_f]Iris[/name_f]?

[name_f]Natalie[/name_f] is my favourite from your list.

[name_f]Rosi[/name_f] (Think it would be good as a nn, but not sure for what. It does make me think of the TV show Criminal Minds, though.)

Not Really [name_f]My[/name_f] Style

Congrats on completing your Top 20! Not an easy task! :slight_smile:

[name_f]Annette[/name_f]- I don’t like many “[name_f]Anne[/name_f]” names but I’d give it as a very spunky name to me. I wouldn’t mind seeing a girl with this name.
[name_f]Audrey[/name_f]- A name I’ve considered myself. It flows out of my mouth beautifully.
[name_f]Augusta[/name_f]- I only seem to like the male equivalent ie [name_m]Augusto[/name_m].
[name_f]Bette[/name_f]- Is it prn like [name_f]Bettie[/name_f]? If so, not a name I like.
[name_f]Enid[/name_f]- Too strange for my taste, and I don’t know every time I look at it. I think about elbows. I know it’s weird…
[name_f]Imogene[/name_f]- I prefer [name_f]Imogen[/name_f]. I’m pretty sure [name_f]Imogene[/name_f] will be prn with a “jean” sound at the end. Which I don’t like.
[name_f]India[/name_f]- Very beautiful.
[name_f]Inez[/name_f]- Nothing to complain because it’s honestly perfect.
[name_u]Joss[/name_u]- I secretly want to name my child this, it sounds very beautiful in english, but in spanish? No…
[name_u]June[/name_u]- Nice. Its nice and just that.
[name_u]Marian[/name_u]- Vintage spunk. [name_u]Love[/name_u] it.
[name_f]Miranda[/name_f]- One of the M names very few people consider, it’s great.
[name_f]Muriel[/name_f]- Ohh, way to old to try and make a comeback.
[name_f]Natalie[/name_f]- Biased because it’s my first name!
[name_f]Nell[/name_f]- Nickname
[name_f]Rosi[/name_f] (prn with a short o, like [name_m]Rossy[/name_m] more than [name_f]Rosie[/name_f], if that makes sense)- I think you need to use the [name_m]Rossy[/name_m] spelling instead to get the desired prn because it will be an never ending problem to try and correct. [name_f]My[/name_f] mothers name is Rosaio, and we all call her [name_f]Rosi[/name_f].
[name_f]Rhiannon[/name_f]- I have a classmate with this name and I seriously thought it was name up. It sounds great but I can’t get out that whole ordeal.
[name_f]Stephanie[/name_f]- No. [name_m]Flat[/name_m] no. [name_f]Stephanie[/name_f]. [name_f]Samantha[/name_f]. [name_f]Jennifer[/name_f]. [name_f]Catherine[/name_f] were way to popular in the 90’s. [name_f]Catherine[/name_f] I get, very historical name. But the others? No.
[name_f]Suzy[/name_f]- I don’t mind seeing it as a first.
[name_f]Winifred[/name_f]- The nn [name_f]Winnie[/name_f] is so darling.

[name_f]Suzy[/name_f] [name_f]Annette[/name_f]
[name_f]Miranda[/name_f] [name_f]Nell[/name_f]
[name_u]Joss[/name_u] [name_f]Enid[/name_f]
[name_f]Augusta[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u]
[name_f]India[/name_f] [name_m]Rossy[/name_m] or [name_f]India[/name_f] [name_f]Inez[/name_f]
[name_f]Natalie[/name_f] [name_f]Winifred[/name_f]
[name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_f]Inez[/name_f]
[name_u]Marian[/name_u] [name_f]Bette[/name_f]
[name_f]Rhiannon[/name_f] [name_f]Muriel[/name_f]

[name_u]Marian[/name_u] (prefer [name_f]Maryanne[/name_f] or [name_f]Marina[/name_f])
[name_f]Rhiannon[/name_f] ([name_f]Rihanna[/name_f] is in my top 10)


Not [name_f]My[/name_f] Style:
