I voted [name]Ivy[/name], but [name]Willa[/name] was such a close second pick! I utterly love both and they narrowly missed being on my top 10. They both have a short-and-sweet, vintagey-timeless, underrated, girly vibe to them, and I’m completely in love with both.

[name]Maxine[/name] is nice, but has always felt a little too out-dated for me, and while I like [name]Vivienne[/name], I don’t love it, and I can’t really imagine using it for myself. [name]Honor[/name] is nice, but I like other virtue names more, and I like [name]Honora[/name] more, too. :slight_smile:

Good luck!

Is [name]Honora[/name] just pronounced [name]Honor[/name] with a short “a” at the end? Like [name]Honor[/name]-uh?

[name]Willa[/name] - I think this name is cute, spunky and pretty all at once. [name]Love[/name] it! My favourite from your list for sure!
[name]Ivy[/name] - I picture a very cool and gorgeous tall girl.
[name]Maxine[/name] - don’t like it, I picture maxi-pads…sorry!
[name]Vivienne[/name] - I can’t picture this on a little girl, but it is nice.
[name]Honor[/name] - Not a huge fan at all.

Of your list, I love:
[name]Ivy[/name]- [name]One[/name] of my favorite nature names! [name]Unique[/name], feminine, spunky, and timeless, all what you were looking for.
I like:
[name]Willa[/name]- I prefer [name]Willow[/name], but [name]Willa[/name] is nice too!
[name]Vivienne[/name]- Nice, but I can’t imagine it on a kid and it’s a little bland.
I mildly dislike:
[name]Honor[/name]- This is an ok name, but it seems a bit masculine.
I despise:
[name]Maxine[/name]- [name]Max[/name] for a girl is WRONG, and [name]Maxine[/name] is just kind of ugly. I’m really sorry I’m being so harsh, but I just hate it sooo much!

Kind of… I say it kind of like oh-[name]NOR[/name]-ah and ah-[name]NOR[/name]-ah… a subtle mix between the two. :slight_smile:

  1. [name]Ivy[/name] - [name]LOVE[/name]
  2. [name]Willa[/name] - OK, but prefer [name]Willow[/name].

don’t really care for the others:-(

[name]LOVE[/name] [name]Vivienne[/name] and [name]Honor[/name]. :slight_smile:

I voted for [name]Maxine[/name], it’s familiar, but uncommon. Spunky and cute. I love the nn [name]Max[/name] on a girl. It has a slightly old-fashioned vibe that I like, but the X in it gives it a little edge.
[name]Willa[/name]- This is cute, I really like [name]Wilhelmina[/name] with [name]Willa[/name] for short.
[name]Ivy[/name]- This name is nms and now that [name]Beyonce[/name] used it as a mn for her baby I think it’s going to become really popular.
[name]Maxine[/name] ([name]Max[/name])- my fave
[name]Vivienne[/name]- second favorite- I like [name]Vivian[/name] a bit more- it’s a sophisticated name on a little girl, but [name]Vivi[/name] is cute.
[name]Honor[/name] - makes me think of [name]Jessica[/name] [name]Alba[/name]'s baby.

[name]Willa[/name] - Got my vote. Sweet, vintage, unusual and sort of lyrical. I really like this name.
[name]Ivy[/name] - My second choice. Simple and elegant.
[name]Maxine[/name] - Not my style. Probably my least favorite of the list. Sounds dated.
[name]Honor[/name] - my #3. A bit austere and even harsh, but I like the old-fashioned Puritan sound.
[name]Vivienne[/name] - I like [name]Vivienne[/name] in theory but not in practice. Close call with [name]Honor[/name] but probably #4. I can’t really put my finger on why, it’s just not my taste.

[name]Vivienne[/name] and [name]Honor[/name] would be my choices and if you like [name]Hope[/name] I think [name]Vivienne[/name] [name]Hope[/name] is lovely.

[name]Honor[/name] [name]Willow[/name] combo

This was a tough one, but [name]Vivienne[/name] won out in the end because of its sophistication. I love [name]Honor[/name] as well, but I think it’s better suited for the middle name spot than as a first name.
Best of luck!

[name]Willa[/name] is my favorite. Simple and unique, very breezy, I love -illa names…[name]Willa[/name], [name]Rilla[/name], [name]Marilla[/name], etc…
[name]Vivienne[/name]…I much prefer [name]Vivien[/name] without the extra frill, but it is pretty
[name]Ivy[/name]. I go back and forth on [name]Ivy[/name], some days I love it, floral without fluffy, other days, it reminds me of a hospital IV.
[name]Honor[/name] sounds very preppy, but I think on the right girl it can be nice
[name]Maxine[/name]. I can’t, it does sound dated to me, maybe because I cant picture a girl with this name without a bad perm (sorry!) NNs…not [name]Max[/name] on a girl, [name]Maxi[/name]…no no no, it’s rough.

[name]Willa[/name] - Pretty, shy, soft spoken
[name]Ivy[/name] - So many different images…she can be cute and spunky, a bit of a bad girl, artsy, very sweet…and always cool
[name]Maxine[/name] - Not my style. 80’s girl with big hair, sorry!
[name]Honor[/name] - sweet and a bit different in a good way
[name]Vivienne[/name] - gorgeous girl!

oh, and [name]Ivy[/name] got my vote, btw. [name]Love[/name] it! Second up would be [name]Willa[/name], followed by [name]Vivienne[/name], then [name]Honor[/name], then [name]Maxine[/name]


I like [name]Vivienne[/name] best, especially with this spelling. It’s one of my favorites! <3

I love [name]Vivienne[/name].

I voted [name]Maxine[/name]. [name]Vivienne[/name] is close second for me. I do like [name]Ivy[/name] as well, but have discounted it purely because it is a bit too popular for me.

I voted for [name]Ivy[/name], but [name]Willa[/name] is precious as well.

My vote went to [name]Vivienne[/name]! A beautiful name, and I just love this spelling. [name]Ivy[/name] is very nice too.
