Personally I like Phaedra
Personally I like Phaedra
Phaedra is my favorite! :-)
Allegra - a pretty Italian name. I've had allergies all my life but I don't associate the name to the medication at all. I think of the "happy" meaning and the allegro musical association.
Isla - Ok but trendy. I used to like this name but now I'm seeing it too often so it has lost some of its lustre.
Freya - In North America, this name is rare (not so in Britain). I think it one of the softest mythological names around. Very feminine.
Vera - I know two older Vera's. A vintage name ripe for discovery!
Octavia - a classic Roman name. I like it for its grandeur and stylish flair!
Phaedra - another frilly mythological name. Unfortunately, it's been tainted by a reality show character on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta". I can't stand reality shows myself.
Evalyn - Evelyn is fine. I don't like this spelling.
Simone - gorgeous and lush French gem
Indie - I think of the Indy 500 race so it's not a name I would choose for a first name.
Allegra - pretty and sophisticated, althought the allergy medication is something to think about
Isla- phonetically lovely, but it seems to be a pronunciation nightmare.
Freya - nice, but only if you're going for the warrior-princess vibe.
Vera - love it! not brave enough to use it myself, but I think it's beautiful.
Octavia - Very classy, very grown-up, not sure how it would wear on a little girl
Phaedra - This was the name of my drama teacher in high school, so I've always seen it as classy, yet artistic
Evalyn - spell it the normal way!
Allegra - medicine
Isla - pretty but trendy
Freya - see Isla
Vera - I think I like this but I also think I like it better as a nn for Veronica
Octavia - I'm torn. On the one hand it's cool but on the other I think it might be hard to wear.
Phaedra - I really like it. Has a very pleasant sound.
Evalyn - looks either like a kree8yv spelling of Evelyn or an homage to the villainess from He-Man: Masters of the Universe
Simone - a good name. I like Simona better tho
Indie - only as a nn and even then it might be trying a little too hard. Indigo and Indiana are both nice tho.
Allegra ~ allergy medicine
Isla and Freya both are very popular and trendy in the UK. In the USA not so much. Coming from the US, I think of them as nameberry darlings. Names that have great appeal among name nerds not so much elsewhere (particularly Freya which is not top 1000 USA; Isla on the other hand is the top 300 which is still not too popular, it's rising due to Isla Fisher). Both of these names are nice. I would use them if you like them.
Vera Until I met a little girl named Vera couldn't picture on one. Her parents were cool people. Not a name I would chose, but it could work.
Octavia on my own favorites list.
Simone Not my style, but I sort of like it. I would like to see someone else use it.
Allegra - I love it and associate it much more with the musical term than the allergy drug
Isla - I like it, but it started loosing its flair for me a little while ago
Freya - Absolutely adorable.
Vera - I like it when pronounced veh-ruh, but I always hear it as vee-ruh in my head and that turns me off
Octavia - Adore! Such a great underused ancient name
Phaedra - I like it a lot; very pretty and underused
Evalyn - It's ok, better if spelled Evelyn. I personally prefer Eveline, but I know many would disagree with me
Simone - My name, so I'm very biased. I love my name; it has served me well.
Indie - Not my style at all
Allegra- allergy meds aside, I think this name has a fun feel and a great meaning.
Isla- lovely name, but I'm over it. Besides, the Spanish speaker in me only sees the word for island.
Freya- really like it. Unusual, but not weird. Established name. Nice meaning. Feminine but not frilly or syrupy sweet.
Vera- see Freya.
Octavia- sounds like a telenovela name. Hehe. I like it.
Phaedra- the mythological connection is awesome, but all I can think of is that woman on the Real Housewives of Atlanta. I need to stop watching so much television.
Evalyn- love Evelyn. Evalyn just looks misspelled.
Simone- eh, it's ok.
Indie- not a fan of nicknamish names.
I love Vera. It's short, sweet, elegant & pretty at the same time. I've had it on my list but my husband has already shot it down...I may try again though!
