Evelyn - love
Amelia - really like!
Holly - cute
Darcy - like
Phoebe - like
Violet - like, prefer Viola
Matilda - like
Ella -okay, I prefer it as a nn
Imogen - okay, unfamiliar in my area but I don't hate it. I don't like any of the nn's
Maya - it's pretty but I don't like the multiple spelling and pronunciation options
Florence - okay, I'm not fond of Flo, I do like Flora though
Madeleine - pretty, but I don't like the many spellings or the popularity
Sienna - okay, just not really my style
Aspen - I think it's very interesting, but it's not my cup of tea
Maeve - it has a nice look, but I don't find the sound pleasant--too mouthy
Isla - it just doesn't feel complete me and I think it would be mispronounced a good bit (at least in my area)
Maya - Gorgeous, ageless. I could easily picture this on a woman of any age.
Imogen - Just can't get into it.
Evelyn - It still feels so dated to me, even though I know it's not! I prefer eve-lynn to ev-uh-lynn.
Florence - Ugh, no. It feels so fusty to me. And the nickname Flo? No thanks!
Amelia - One of my favorites but I'll never use it because of the ending being similar to Julia.
Ella - I don't care for it but it ages nicely.
Matilda - Lovely. I'm surprised this name isn't more common.
Phoebe - There's nothing wrong with the name but I just can't get into it.
Holly - It feels dated.
Darcy - I like it but it feels more dated than Holly (here at least)
Madeleine - I prefer Madeline (pronounced -line, not -lyn) but this is pretty as well!
Sienna - It feels trendy to me.
Aspen - I don't like the -spen part of the name.
Maeve - Not my favorite Irish name.
Isla - Stunning. I'm surprised it isn't more popular here.
Violet - I don't care for it but it's not bad.
Maya- I prefer Amaya.
Imogen- love it.
Evelyn - lovely, but seeing it everywhere these days.
Florence- love this one. pretty and classic.
Amelia- nice, but not my favorite.
Ella- a little too common for me.
Matilda- not crazy about the meaning.
Holly- Love Holly and the Audrey Hepburn "Holly Golightly" reference.
Darcy- I grew up with a Darci who was lovely, but it also reminds me of Mr.Darcy. so, meh.
Madeleine- getting too popular for my taste
Sienna- Love this
Maeve- not a fan.
Isla- my favorite! Love it.
Violet - I'm conflicted on this one. Most nameberries love it, but every time I say it I have to remind myself not to say "violent"
I like all of them except Holly. Darcy is such a sweet name!
These would definitely be my favourites from your list. If I had to have a top pick it would be Imogen - as that is top of my list for next girl at moment. And yes, I agree that Violet is increasing in popularity....though I think that is just a nameberry thing! As I know so many kids from 1 week old to 12years old and there is not one Violet amongst them. So Violet would have to be close to top as well. Have always loved the name Phoebe.
Love: Violet, Ella, Madeleine
Like: Amelia, Evelyn, Isla, Sienna
NMS: Imogen, Florence, Matilda, Phoebe, Holly, Darcy, Aspen, Maeve
My favorites are Amelia, Darcy, Isla, and Maeve!
As the dad of a 2 year old Darcy, I am happy to see that most people have a pretty positive association with the name. We wanted something not common, but not unfamiliar. We get a lot of what seems to be genuine appreciation for her name. People seem to really like it. I know I do :)
