I love:
Anna - Simple, classic & elegant. Can't go wrong.
Arabella - Fit for a princess. I also like the names many potential nn's.
Elizabeth - See Anna. I also love the nn Eliza.
Isabella - Beautiful name however due to the names insane popularity not one I would ever use myself. I also love Anabella.
Ivy - I LOVE this. It is a beautiful, classy name but still has a 'cool' factor.

I like:
Adelaide - I think I prefer the more stream lined Adeline though I like this quite a bit too.
Bella - I prefer this as a nn for one of its longer variants.
Cate - This is cute and my preferred spelling.
Catherine - This is my preferred spelling of the name. Strong & classic.
Callista - I prefer Calista with one L. I like its spunky charm.
Evelyn - Pretty! I also love the potential nn Eve.
Elliana - I prefer it with one L: Eliana, which just looks cleaner to me. Pretty name. I like it a lot. I also like Eliora (Ellie-or-ah) and Elora (uh-lore-uh). This is a refreshing alternative to some of the other very popular Ellie names.


Not sure about:
Acadia - It kind of appeals to my adventurist side though I do think of Arcades for some reason. I prefer Acacia.
Acacia - It isn't really my thing but I can see the appeal and as stated above I prefer this to Acadia.
Arielle/Ariella - Ariella sounds similar to areola which bothers me.. Arielle makes me think of the mermaid. I don't necessarily hate either but I am not completely sold on them either.
Brianne - Ehhh.. It is just okay for me. Feels like its been done a few times too many. I prefer Brianna though neither is really my thing.
Daniela - Again it doesn't wow me but I don't hate it. I do prefer Daniela to Danielle. It feels a bit 80's dated but not overtly so.
Evy - I love Eve and I think Evie makes for a cute nn. On it's own it feels unsubstantial. I much prefer the spelling Evie.
Ginevra - I think the nn Ginny is cute but I am not totally sold on Ginevra. I do like Geneva and Genevieve though.
Iris - It is a pretty enough name but I do think of eyes.
Jeneva - I like this with the spelling Geneva.

I don't care for:
Aleah - It is one of those names like Cher that feels like it belongs to one particular person (the late singer). I much prefer Leah. I think I like your spelling best.
Adelyn - Visually this name is unappealing for me. The lyn ending makes it feel trendy and made up. I much prefer Adeline.
Anatola - Sounds like some kind of disease.
Aibreann - I've never heard this one before. I don't care for the pronunciation and I tend to avoid names that don't visually match their pronunciation.
Bethany - Bland and boring. Makes me think of a very plain girl.
Belinda nn Lindie - I don't mind Melinda but I don't care for Belinda. The linda part feels very dated coupled with the strong B sound it just isn't appealing for me.
Brielle - Too trendy for my tastes.
Caley - Ditto Brielle.
Felicia -It just sounds kind of tacky and unrefined. I prefer Alicia.
Giulia - I don't care for this spelling
Hannah - I find it boring.
Haleigh - I really don't like this spelling. My preferred spelling is Hailey though I am sick to death of this name and all her ley/leigh/lee ending friends.
Illiana - I don't care for the ill part which makes me think of being ill. I much prefer Eliana.
Isalie - Looks made up. I love Isla though.
Iana - I suppose the pronunciation isn't bad but the names visual lacks appeal for me.
Ilia - Don't care for the pronunciation or the visual. I again think of being ill.
Jessica - 80's dated. I do love Jessamine & Jessa.
Jenna/Jennifer - 80's dated. I prefer Gemma to Jenna.

I strongly dislike:
Flavia - I generally like very European sounding names but this one is a no go for me. I think of Fabio (the romance novel model).
Ivory - Tusks?

You know, Maggie, I barely get any chance to give you my opinions on your names pick, 'cos we like such different styles! But This time there are actually a lot of names I like from your list, so I'm going to critique them all.

[color="#FF00FF"]Girls:
Anna -Classic and beautiful. I suggest Anna Karina as a combo. I absolutely love it.
Aleah (how to speel it?) -Nice, but I much prefer Leah. Aleah has something extra especial, though.
Adelaide -I LOVE it, if you add the tildes, it would be even better. Adelle is also a beautiful option.
Adelyn -Nice, but I'd prefere Adelaide or Adelle over it.
Arabella -It always makes me think of an old lady. Read too much Harry Potter.
Acadia -I don't like Acadia or Acacia. It sounds too mythological to me.
Acacia -See above
Anatola -See above
Aibreann (Ay-vreen) -Gorgeous pn! Is it Irish? The only problem would be no one would spell it or pronounce it right, but Irish names are all like that. :)
Arielle -I absolutely love this one. It makes me think of a beautiful young lady with fair skin and long hair.
Ariella -Same as above.
Bethany -Not my style, I prefer Bethony.
Belinda nn Lindie -Not my style at all. I prefer Linda.
Bella -Beautiful name. My only fear is that she will end up with 30 more Bella's in her class. Belle is another beautiful option. Or Ella.
Brielle -NMS.
Brianne -NMS At all.
Cate -Too common for my taste
Catherine -see above. I prefer it as a mn.
Callista -It's a pretty common hispanic name, so NMS
Caley -NMS. I dont' see any potential or substance to the name.
Daniela -See Callista.
Evelyn -You know this is my all time favorite, so .. :P
Evy -I'm not about nicknames a full names, so...
Elizabeth -There is a reason why this name has been on the top 100 for the last couples of centuries.
Elliana -Dislike it.
Felicia (yea, I know...you think of her Felicia Hardy is one of my all time favorite comic characters (Together with Rogue). I absolutely love this name, regardless of how many undeserving people have been blessed with it.
Felicity -Kelly Russell is the only thing that pops into my head.
Flavia -See Callista.
Giulia -Dislike the pn and the sp
Ginevra -I don't like it at all. I'm a Ginny Weasley fan, but I think the name is absolutely hideous (sorry there). Ginger would be a MUCH nicer option for the nn Ginny.
Hannah -This name always makes me think of a southern girl.
Haleigh -Pretty, but NMS.
Illiana - I really dislike names like Illiana or Eliana because I grew up hearing them way too much. They are way tooooo common in hispanic countries.
Isabella -Didn't really cared for the name before Twilight, but i'm fearing it's way too common these days.
Isalie -Not sure about this one.
Iana -it's painful to pronounce.
Ilia -see Caley
Iris -I LOVE this name. And I love the song by Goo Goo Dolls ;) The meaning is nice, too.
Ivy -Starting to love it. But I'm a comic lover, Poison Ivy is a fine character.
Ivory -I way prefer Ebonie.
Jenna -I love Jenna. I just love it.
Jessica -I grew up with a lot of Jessica's. I think the name had it's momento. Now it's time to move on.
Juliet -I love it. I just love it.
Jennifer -Altought this name had it's momento too, I think it's still a nice name to consider.
Jeneva - Absolutely not. I think it's weird.


Hope I helped ;)

Thanks, Everyone!!!

And thanks, Deysi! I love Anna Karina. I may prefer the spelling Carina, though.



I'm glad you like it, Mags.

But I never liked Carina with C. I guess I'm too used to see it with K, i think it adds an special something.

I have a niece named Karina Isabela (she's 7, so it was way before the Twilight hit).
