Responses yay! I was off buying furniture (not a good idea when hormonal...lol)
@goodkarmavt Never thought about putting Noemí in the middle spot. Beatriz Noemí is beautiful. Vashti Noor is equally beautiful. Already know quite a few Sofia's so that one is out, but Sela is cute... let's see if the fiancé agrees.
@ottilie- My wedding is July 13th!!!! How crazy is that! 77 days! WHOOO! I'm sure that all this wedding stuff is not helping the crazy hormones. Thank you for the reassurance on Cecilia. It is really growing on me lately. Ophelia / Ofelia is another one that has really grown on me Was thinking about putting them with Zoe...
@jessica123 - Serafina is also on my short list.. If I did Lux, it would have to be Luz.
@waverly1234 Amaya Elinor is very pretty. I love Alexandra (Alejandra) but one of my very good friends is named this, so it's out.
Thanks so much everyone!
Cassandra- spunky, sassy and fun
Anastasia- exotic and foreign-but-familiar, regal but very associated with the Grand Duchess
Cecilia- lacy and lissome, frilly and feminissima
Zara- zippy and packs quite a punch with just four letters
Miranda- sounds modern but is in reality centuries old, feminine and pretty
Ophelia- dramatic and stunning, but very associated with the characater (and I'm not a huge fan of her though I love her name!)
Elinor- love Eleanor, but not a fan of this spelling
Kassiani- unique and interesting, nice sound
Carina- nice but doesn't pop
Camila- I much prefer Camilla and Camelia
Beatriz- I much prefer Beatrice; Beatrix is okay too
Eleni- nice but not very feminine
Zahira- exotic, dramatic and spunky
Zoe- I tend not to like the long O sound in names
Noemi- same as Zoe
Amaia/Amaya- find a bit boring
Madeline- nice but very common
Lior/Eliora/Liora- too close to the word liar for me
Aisha- tend not to like names with "sh" in them
Vashti- sounds very masculine
Amaya means 'night rain' in Japanese which I think is beautiful, if you don't like the Spanish meaning of Amaia.
What about - Eloisa, Noa, Leonor, Paloma, Lucila, Ramona, Zea, Delphi, Paz, Cosette, Sofia, Asha?
