I think the only one I really love is Prue. Amaryllis isn’t terrible and Dorinda could be an easily pronounced name that might have recognition more as a cheetah girl, although Doe as a nickname is lovely.

I love Amarylllis but I think I’ll have a hard time getting anyone on board with that name. Also the name may be a bit much to fit into a sib set.
Bellamira is nice as I have Mirabella on my list.

Restoration Comedies always have the most interesting names…Sneerwell, Crabtree and Benjamin Backbite being some of my favorites.

Amaryllis, Florimel, Lucretia, Millamant, Narcissa, and Palmyra are divine.

I very much enjoyed this piece.
I like learning something new and it made me want to get season tickets to a restoration comedy company.

I love this list! Berinthia was the name of the wife of Anthony Perkins, the actor who is best known for playing Norman Bates in Psycho. She went by the nickname Berry. I thought of her as soon as I saw that name on the list.

How interesting! Narcissa is a guilty pleasure of mine, so it’s nice to see on this list.
