Alright here goes!!



Adeline- I prefer Adele or Adela but it's okay
Allegra-I love this name!
Amalia/Amara-I like Amara a little more than Amalia to be honest
Angelique- Not too fond of it
Arabella- I love this name as well!!
Arielle-It's alright, not my favorite though
Camille- I know a really snotty girl with this name so I don't like it...
Celina-I like the spelling Selena better, but it's okay
Clementine- Ick, sorry don't like at all
Elodie- Very classic and elegant!
Esme-Even though the whole twilight thing, I find this name to be very pretty!
Evangeline- Pretty but it's starting to become more common
Evanthe/Xanthe- Same as Clementine
Francesca-It's alright
Genevieve-Really, realy pretty!
Ginevra-Not my favorite....
Helena-It's alright, I don't love it, but i don't hate it
Inaya-Ehh, not a fan...sounds sort of odd
Isla/Isis-Not a fan of either name, but if I had to choose, I'd choose Isis
Jacinda-Sounds very made up to me. Like a mix of Jacey and Linda/Lucinda
Juliet-Very pretty!
Kasia-Not that pretty sounding to me.
Lorelei-Love this name!
Maribel/Mirabel-Mirabel is okay, I don't like Maribel at all though
Matisse-Kinda sounds like Mistress... :/
Nalani-Same as Kasia
Piper-I really like this name, very sweet
Rosalie-Same as Esme with the whole Twilight thing, but it's still pretty
Tallulah-Ehh, something about it just seems weird to me but I'm not sure what
Vada-I haven't heard this name much, but I think it's very pretty!
Wilhelmina
-Ehh, the spelling makes the name ook very complicated and I don't really like the sound of it.

Sorry if i was harsh or rude!

Thanks Kayra, no don't worry about being harsh, i'm really honest too so i love knowing other peoples opinions! And don't worry I didn't make any up, they're all real names (oh and I like Jacinta too). Matisse is actually my favourite name, it's pronounced like Mat-eese if that makes sense, and its the surname of french painter Henri Matisse, not sure why but ever since I heard it like 5 years ago I have loved it haha.

Apparently Jacinda means beautiful in Greek, which is better than Jacinta which means purple in Spanish lol (or Tessa which means harvester). I love finding out the meaning of names, so sometimes it makes me like them more, but Lucille/Lucinda are favourites of mine (though my dog was called Lucinda nn. Lucy so I probably couldn't use that haha).

Adeline - love it, though I slightly prefer Adelaide
Allegra - love love love love... in my top ten as Allegra Katherine/Kate. Absolutely gorgeous name imao.
Amalia/Amara - Love Amara, but I prefer Amelia to Amalia. I know it is common, but still love it.
Angelique - it is okay, I just like Angeline/Angelica/Angelina losts more. I love the nn Angie!
Arabella - Another on my list... I have Arabella Ivy. Very pretty name that has interesting nn possibilities (besides Belle/Bella) that I do like.
Arielle - hmmm... I like Ariel better.
Camille - love love love. As Yas said, love Cam(i) as a nn. I think I love Camille so much because I don't like Cameron but love the nn.
Celina - I think I like it better with an
Clementine - isn't this a brand of oranges? Some kind of fruit brand, I'm sure. I also don't like it because the sond is now playing in my head and it is quite an annoying song.
Elodie - Doesn't look whole to me, I'm more used to Melody/Melanie so when I see it I have to stop and think about it.
Esme - Automatically think of Twilight, sorry. I'd avoid it just because of that, but I also really don't like it because it sounds sort of frilly to me..
Evangeline - LOVE, though it is getting more popular.
Evanthe/Xanthe - Like it a lot, just don't love it.
Francesca - I've never liked this name or the nn Frannie.
Genevieve - ditto, though I like Ginny as a nickname.
Ginevra - okay. I prefer it to Genevieve.
Helena - Never like Helen, but Helena is sort of okay.
Anais/Inaya - Really like both, though pronunciation might be an issue.
Isla/Isis - ditto the previous. I think I slightly prefer Isis since it makes me think of the goddess more and I don't see it nearly as often as Isla.
Jacinta/Jacinda - Definitely like Jacinda more.
Juliet - LOVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEEEEE. Simply gorgeous name. I get the feeling it is going to be popular, though.
Kasia (pron. like cass-sigh-uh or cass-ee-uh) - Love again. Really really love it. Don't think I've seen it before. *puts on list*.
Lorelei - Used to love it, still kind of love it. I do <3 the nickname, though.
Maribel/Mirabel - okay, they remind me of a name that I really like: Marisol. I know they aren't that close, but still. I like Marisol > Mirabel > Maribel.
Matisse - Really like it. Very interesting.
Nalani - prefer Leilani, which is sort of similar. I just think the 'n' sound isn't as pretty as the 'L' sound.
Piper - LOVE, though I'd prefer it as a middle name.
Rosalie - getting Twilight associations, but I really like the name. Never use it myself though.
Tallulah - reminds me of a drink of some sort or the kid named Talluluh Does The Hula From Hawaii. I don't think anybody but babynamers would know that, though. Still not fond of the name even after putting aside the reference for some reason.
Vada - reminds me of Darth Vader, might be very pretty otherwise. I think I might really like it if i heard it more.
Wilhelmina (nn Willow or Willa) Prefer Willow as nn. I love Wilhemina, and definitely would use Mina as the nickname, though.

Thanks for the feedback guys! I'm glad you like most of them, these are probably the most 'normal' of the names I like, where I live there are a lot of kids with unusual names so I have a lot of inspiration! Haha. It's really funny cause i'm actually a fan of twilight, but the names Rosalie, Esme, Jasper, Emmett etc. were all on my list before the books even came out, which is sort of annoying, oh well!
