For me, it was between Lavinia Belle, Thalassa Pearl, and Serena Charlotte.
I voted Thalassa Pearl. Thalassa is such an unusual, strong, beautiful name. It sounds like waves crashing against rocks, and with Pearl, it's a name for a mermaid queen!
Lavinia Belle is well-balanced, Victorian and charming.
Serena Charlotte is not as wild as some of your other choices, but it's very dignified.. and Serena is elegant.
I really like Scarlett. Lavinia is also nice.
I chose Liliana Grace. The rest of the names are nice, but not really my style.
As for a Serena with dark hair, I think that would be fine!
Lavinia Belle is my favorite, but if Lavinia Blair were an option, I would have chosen that instead. It was tough! You have some very gorgeous names picked out.
Thanks everyone :) I appreciate all the feedback it really will help me make the right decision! :)
Scarlett Faye - I really like both names and the combo here. My favorite from your list.
Liliana Grace - this is a pretty combo.
Lavinia Belle - I like it, I prefer Livinia mainly because I don't like the "lav" sound--it seems like it would promote a flat pronunciation "LAH-vee-knee-uhh" instead of "liv-in-ee-uh"
Leilani Violet - okay, I prefer Liliana. What about Lorelei?
Lacey Elizabeth - I like Lacey, but it's not as elegant as some of your other choices. What about something like Elicia with nn Lacey?
Thalassa Pearl - Thalassa makes me think "Thalassa-raptor" lol. what about Thessaly?
Gabriella Blair - not fond of this one. I think it's a bit odd to have every letter in the middle name found in the first. Gwendolyn?
Serena Charlotte - okay, I like Charlotte. Serena is only so so. Celeste? Cecily?
I LOVE Lavinia Belle! So feminine and stunning.
I voted for Lacey Elizabeth. Elizabeth is a favorite of mine, and I feel like Lacey needs some love, thanks to another thread that is ongoing.
scarlett faye gmv, but also love leilani violet and serena charlotte
