Emms! Glad you could make it ^_^ you're right, Faery-esque names are definitely the way to my heart. I want to love Everly, but I always just see Beverly with the B lopped off. When I saw the Everleigh spelling, I finally fell for the name...it just looks so ethereal to me. From your list, I love how Andalusia just rolls so grandly off the tongue. Velvet, Meadow, and Fern are dreamy and lovely, though I think I'd like something longer and more flowing than Fern. Waverly has a beautiful sound and I love the ocean imagery, but the Disney sitcom is just killing it for me. I'm not so much a fan of Walpurgis and Eglantine because of the harsher consonants. I tend to go for more lyrical, airy sounds. Elva, Oona, and Oolith are so mysterious and enchanting, especially Oolith! That is a new one for me!
mei_mei - I'm liking Clarity! Alice Clarity rings like a bell. And Melusine is exquisite, so dreamy and mermaid-esque. I like the idea of Magdalene, but those heavy consonants really drag it down for me. I love how Caraway makes me think of Enya's Orinoco Flow!
alysonr8 - Evangeline is my top pick from your list! Alice Evangeline is in my top three Alice combos, but unfortunately Hubby doesn't like it any better than Everleigh :( I love Celestine, but I think the -ce Ce- sounds run together... Alice Marguerite is a beautiful, elegant combo, just a little too safe for me.
Thank you guys! Your suggestions are all inspiring! :)
Reading this thread has been so exciting. These are exactly the type of names I adore!
I love the sound of Alice Coppelia as suggested by a pp! I would also second the suggestion of Aravis if it didn't sound so repetitive with Alice.
I think I might be Alice-blind because I like the name so much, but here are some other random thoughts:
Alice Fairly (I know a Fairly in fact. Always loved this. And a Wonderly. But that would be silly with Alice.)
Alice Araceli ("Ah-rah-SE-lee" means "altar of the sky")
Alice Emperatriz (means "empress".. makes me think of the tarot card)
Clarity is one of my biggest GP loves. :)
Caraway is this flower: http://www.celtnet.org.uk/images/caraway.gif
The seeds are used as an herbal medicine and I think the sound is just magical, like care-away. How much more positive can you get? :)
I didn't see these on any of the previous posts, so here it goes:
Here is a list I think you may like!!
Alice Coral-Aria (The latin word "COROLLARIA" means flower girl" or "garland")
Alice Evangeline (I love this!)
I REALLY suggest that you check these lists, I think they're exactly what you're looking for!:
Please message me more about what you are looking for so I can narrow down some names for you!!
