I love All of them!

I like Bethany nn Beth better then Beth on it's own. Reese I love on it's own Elizabeth is too popular for me. My least favorite would probably be Edie which I think is a tad bit too nick namey.

Reese ~ Both for boys and girls name it just reminds me of the chocolate, but I do like it much better for a girl.
Beth ~ I love this name and I love it as a nickname for Elizabeth / Bethany. On its own or as a nickname its really pretty and classic.
Gianna ~ I don't like many girl's names that start with G (I feel Grace is a little overused, however pretty) but Gianna is one that I like. I don't like Gia though.
Audrey ~ I have loved this name since I opened my first baby name book. Beautiful, classic, feminine.
Lorelai ~ I am not a fan of this name other than it being from Gilmore Girls.
Vivienne ~ I really like this one but it's not my favourite. I see it as being just a pretty name, not special (to me).

My favourites: Beth, Audrey and Vivienne

I like Reese and Lorelai. I love Bethany and Elizabeth with the nickname Beth. Im not sure if i like Beth by itself or not but I do like it. Gianna isnt really my style but Audrey is on my list. Im not a fan of Vivienne but I like Edie and Edith actually.

Reese - Prefer this on a boy with the spelling Rhys.
Beth - Not my style at all. I find it so bland and boring. I picture a plain Jane kinda girl. I love Elizabeth but I think that there are way better nn's ie. Eliza, Ella, Ellie, Elle etc.
Gianna - Sounds harsh. I am not a fan.
Audrey - This is nice. A strong classic. Definitely my favorite from your list!
Edie - Sounds incomplete as a given name imo.
Lorelai - Not fond of this one either. Sounds a bit dated.
Vivienne - I don't love it. It is a bit hard sounding for me but it is one of the better ones on your list imo.

Reese - Prefer for a boy...not sure if you get this show but it reminds me of Malcolm in the Middle.
Beth - I like Beth, I think it nice as a nn for Elizabeth...not a fan of Bethany
Gianna - Gorgeous!! I knew someone who americanized it and spelled it Johna
Audrey - Lovely name...I think Audi/Audie would be a cute nn too. Much prefer this to Aubrey
Edie - you know I LOVE LOVE LOVE this name...to me it is similar to Evie (Evelyn) but has a classier, more funky feel to it...It has the feel of a nick name but I think it is strong enough to stand on its own as a first name, plus not a fan of any of the longer alternatives...Eden (too trendy at the moment), Edith (too old fashioned, not very pretty), Edeline (a bit awkward IMO)?
Lorelai - Okay
Vivienne - Very cute!!! I love this spelling and the nn Viv is super cute!!

My favorites would be Edie, Vivienne & Audrey in that order.

Thank you everyone! :]

At the moment I have to admit my favourites are Audrey, Vivienne and Beth.

I love Edie, I'm just not sure I could ever use it!

Also, what do you think of Violet, Zara, Piper, Ivy, Quinn and Adele? ♥

Violet is beautiful & sophisticated IMO...and underused at the moment (at least for a first name) I think nn Vi is adorable

Zara - not really my cup of tea...similar to Sara with a more exotic feel.

Piper - Cute, this name always reminds me of the character on Charmed...spunky! :lol:

Ivy - I feel the same about this as I do about Violet. Has a similar sound to Evie but of course more nature-y.

Quinn - Short, to the point, has a very modern & updated feel, its a nice name that I like but would never actually use

Adele - LOVE this name...classic, beautiful, romantic and underused


Adele, Violet & Ivy would be my faves in that order.

Reese ~ I used to love this name when I was younger. I don't hate it now, not at all, but it wouldn't make my list anymore -- it's not feminine enough and hasn't got much "character". I still like the sound though :lol:
Beth~ I admit I'm not a huge fan... I love Elisabeth & Elizabeth, so I'd use it for a nickname. It's cute!
Gianna~ I feel like it's on the rise in America, but it's actually not that common here. I only know one person with this name, and quite frankly, it sounds a bit old-ladyish.
Audrey~ I love it. I feel like Audrey is a gorgeous balance between femininity, popularity and elegance. I would love to use it, perhaps as a middle name.
Edie ~ Though I probably wouldn't use it myself, I think it's still very pretty, but classy. It's also one of those names that age wonderfully -- you can picture a middle aged/old woman with the name, but I have no problem seeing a little girl named Edie!
Lorelai ~ I've never been a fan <3 I can't pinpoint the reason, but this name looks a bit awkward to my eyes ... I prefer Laurel, which is similar.
Vivienne ~ Needless to say, I love this and you know it. I'm leaning towards the spelling Vivian this days, but the name remains beautiful, one of my favourites.

Also, what do you think of Violet, Zara, Piper, Ivy, Quinn and Adele? ♥


I absolutely adore Violet & Ivy!
Violet is the one I love the most, and I hope it loses popularity in the next years. It's a name that feels pretty but not over-heard, and I really wanna use it in the future. Viola is the Italian equivalent and I also think it's incredibly pretty.
Ivy is sweet, sweet, sweet. But it ages well. Now, I'd favor it as a middle name because I'm almost positive I'll use Eve, which is too similar. But I love it!
Piper ~ is a recent love. Now, it's a favourite of mine ♥ I love it.
Adele ~ has a flowy, elegant feel to it that I really adore. I think it would be enchanting as a middle name.
Quinn ~ is not my style, and I wouldn't use it. But it sounds positively quirky!
Zara ~ is definitely exotic, I think it would be great on the right person. I would never use it though.

much love <3

LOVE: Lorelai, Beth, Bethany, Elizabeth,
LIKE: Gianna, Violet, Adele, Piper, Zara, Ivy

Audrey and Edie are too old-lady-ish IMHO, I prefer Aubrey and Evie

Reese - prefer on a boy, spelled Rhys

Quinn - not that keen, even with Glee

Vivienne - are you pronouncing it Vivi-EN or Vivi-UN?

Reese - feels like a boy name
Beth (On it's own or as a nn for Bethany/Elizabeth) - nms, feels a bit old/plain
Gianna - I just can't get the Dexter quote about Detective Gianna being teased with "Vagianna"s
Audrey - better than Aubrey, but not even close to my favorite A name
Edie - I know how to pronounce it, but I usually tend to immediately think "Eddie"
Lorelai - prefer Lorelei, but still really like either
Vivienne - love it. Feminine but strong, classic without being old.
Violet - like it, especially as a first name.
Zara - okay. A bit witchy.
Piper - nice
Ivy - alright, though not really my style
Quinn - not a fan
Adele - love it

~ Quinn - NMS
~ Adele - I think it's classy and sweet, though I don't personally like it much
