Ivy -- A little bit sassy. I see an Ivy being a little flirt. Ivy Elaine sounds nice to me.
Stella -- It's a big name. I don't know if it's because of Streetcar, but whenever I meet a Stella I feel like her name is too big for her. She can't quite become big enough to put her own stamp on the name, if that makes sense.
Alexandra -- I love this name. I wish more girls would use the full name. It's just got such a strength to it. But it maintains its femininity. Alexandra sounds like she could strong arm her way into ruling the world. It's a powerful name. And I do like the nickname Alex. It's a little sharp, but it's a good name. Also. I think Alexandra is a great middle name for all of these other names. I think it's got the length and syllables like Elizabeth that makes it a great counterbalance to almost any name, but it's also a bit fresher and a bit more exciting.
Willow -- A bit of a hippie name for me. I still like it though. Soft and sweet.
Zoe -- Too cute for me. It's a very cute name. Zooey Deschanel couldn't be more Zooey if she tried. Not that I dislike her, not that I think a Zoe can't be the perfect opposite of that. It's just not my taste.
Ava -- Classic, strong, Hollywood. Gumption. Ava is so simple, but it has that certain something. Ava Alexandra has a nice rhythm to me.
Miranda -- Very romantic and heavy. Mirrrrrrranda. It's a bit of a sexy name. It's still got sophistication though. It can be vixen, but it can be powerful CEO just as easily.
Charlotte -- So classic, so sweet, so soft. You can't go wrong. I prefer a name with a little more strength in it. Charlotte has no bite or flair, but it's still a fantastic name.
Scarlett -- Like Miranda for me, but I would skip it personally because of Scarlett O'Hara. I despise everything involved with that story.
Vivien -- Great name. I prefer the spelling Vivian a little bit, but it's not important. It's clean. It's classic. It's slick and sophisticated. Vivien is quietly powerful and elegant for me. A Vivien could take over the world without anyone noticing until she'd already made her way to the top.
Poppy -- Very sweet. Very cute. Very preppy. It doesn't grow up well for me, unless you already have enough money and you know you're going to be a socialite, in which case a name like Poppy is perfectly suited to your future profession. A doctor or lawyer named Poppy? I don't think so.
Violet -- There is something about this name that I don't like. It's got pretty letters and a pretty meaning. But the sound is unappealing to me. It's a bit harsh I guess. Ahh, the person above me said it's too close to 'violent.' That very well may be what's tripping me up.
I know an ivy with dark curls and blue eyes and she is beautiful. I love the name! Also love violet (antique but still modern) and poppy is cute and spunky.
Ivy – Love it! I love nature names and this is one of my favourites.
Stella – Cute!
Alexandra – not the biggest fan. Have you considered Alexandria or Anastasia? Or Angelica or Annalise or Amadea or Araminta?
Willow – Very cute!
Zoe – A bit too popular for me, but it is a really nice name!
Ava – Not the biggest fan. What do you think of Avalon? Or Ada or Abra?
Miranda – I don't really like it, but I understand the appeal! Nice name!
Charlotte – I prefer Charity and Cecily and Clementine and Cordelia and Clarity. Or Cecilia or Cassia! Nameberry had sort of ruined this name for me.
Scarlett – Nice! I'm not the biggest fan, but again, I understand the appeal.
Vivien – Nice.
Poppy – Super nice! I love Poppy.
Violet – Also love Violet!

Ivy - Okay, kinda boring. Would be a decent middle
Stella - Not a fan of this one; just don't like the sound.
Alexandra-- Okay, has neat history, but I don't like Alex on a girl
Willow - Don't like nature names much but this is one of the better ones in that category imo
Zoe - Makes me think of the muppet on Sesame Street. Too short for my liking and not a fan of Z names
Ava - Too common
Miranda - First I have a negative assosciation with a really really bratty child named Miranda, then I think Sex and the City
Charlotte - So many people love this one. I don't. I think it's going to be really trendy
Scarlett - It's growing on me, but I still don't care for it much
Vivien - My favorite on your list by far although I prefer Vivienne or Vivian
Poppy - Lots of people love this one, too. Not me, it just sounds funny to my ear and I think of opium poppies.
Violet - Okay, it makes me think of Violet in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (which is a negative association)
Ivy - never really liked this one...
Stella - love the name and the meaning
Alexandra - like, but only with nn - Aly, Lexi?
Willow - not my favorite
Zoe - too popular for my taste
Ava - like, even though its popular
Miranda - eh
Charlotte - really like this name, really pretty
Scarlett - all right
Vivien - don't like that much
Poppy - eh
Violet - pretty
My favorites are Stella and Charlotte, both beautiful names
Ranked in order of preference:
Scarlett- dramatic, stunning, glamorous, feisty. seems Southern belle-esque because of Scarlett O'Hara, one of my favourite characters ever; I imagine a girl like her (but less ruthless and self-centred)
Alexandra- classic, elegant, regal but totally wearable and down-to-earth at the same time. I've known so many I could see this on all kinds of girls, but I imagine someone demure and proper and polite but not in a stuffy way.
Charlotte- like Alexandra, this name has tons of history and great references and manages to be both sophisticated and down-to-earth. Also brings to mind a quiet but kindhearted girl.
Miranda- dramatic and eye-catching, hundreds of years old and literary but with a modern sound. I picture someone clever, quick-witted, fashionable and cosmopolitan for some reason, and with dark hair.
Willow- brings to mind spring and forest glades and of course, willow trees. A Willow would be someone quiet and shy but with a good heart.
Violet- I seem to be one of the few Berries who dislikes this. I just find it harsh and grating.
Ava- pretty sound, but so short it feels incomplete to me. I picture someone friendly, social and glamorous- a "popular girl" who's not snobby (at my high school at least, they existed)
Vivien- seems very glamorous and Old Hollywood because of Vivien Leigh, but not really a fan
Ivy- sweet, pretty and nature-y. I picture a friendly girl who loves interacting with people.
Poppy- too nicknamey and cutesy. I picture a bubbly girl who talks a lot.
Stella- nice and girly but seems a bit chopped off to me, not a fan. I picture someone glamorous and sophisticated but slightly aloof.
Zoe- I don't like how I can never tell if it should be pronounced "zo" or "zo-ee"- I would use an umlaut if you want the latter and just spell it Zo if you want the first. spunky and sassy. I imagine someone eccentric and hard to get to know.
Ivy: Quiet but strong...the sort of girl who will fight her own battles. Independent but fiercely loyal and caring.
Stella: Vibrant and energetic...full of pep and unwilling to let anyone take her down. Full of fire and light and more than willing to share her joy with others.
Alexandra: Classic and sedate...the sort of girl who is proud and confident in herself.
Willow: Wispy and ethereal...Willow is in touch with herself. The definition of still water runs deep.
Zoe: Quirky while still being relatable...the sort who gets herself into trouble but can talk her way right out of it.
Ava: Observant and introspective. She knows what she likes and makes her opinions clear in a polite yet firm way.
Miranda: Beautiful and charming. Miranda has everyone wrapped around her little finger but she still manages to be kind and gentle. The sort of girl you want to know and feel drawn to without understanding why.
Charlotte: Classy and collected. Charlotte is happy and carefree while still being polished.
Scarlett: Vivacious and strong...a girl who won't take no for an answer. Liable to convince you the sky is green.
Vivien: Smart and ambitious...she has high goals set for herself and is determined to reach them.
Poppy: Spunky and full of a quiet beauty...she has an edge to her but is so lovable that she can get away with it. She's a bit eccentric but recognizes the way things work and is willing to adapt and grow.
Violet: Clever and full of ideas. Sweetest girl you'll ever meet who greets the world with boundless energy and appreciation. Clear in her way of seeing things and able to pull others in.
Ivy - Sounds very spoiled to me. I see it on an only child, a little girl who makes lots of noise with her feet when she walks.
Stella - Pretty, but not very substantial. A Stella would be friendly and sweet, if a little dull.
Alexandra - Classic and so wearable. It's such a broad name that I have trouble getting specific imagery from it.
Willow- Kind of pretty, very ethereal. A Willow would be shy and smart, with bad posture but excellent taste/ideas.
Zoe - Love it. So much spunk and fun in three little letters. A Zoe would be a ball of energy, constantly in motion.
Ava - One of the prettier top ten names, but I'd still avoid it for that reason. Like Alexandra, an Ava could be anyone.
Miranda - Awesome. Needs to be brought back! A Miranda would be freckled, fearless, possibly a dancer.
Charlotte - Eh. It feels utterly bland to me. Once again I can't summon up imagery for it.
Scarlett - NMS, I don't like the sound. I think a Scarlett would be a stubborn tomboy with a bob.
Vivien - Pretty and totally in the sweet spot. I prefer Vivian. A stoic girl who is very observant, uses big words and is good at sports.
Poppy - I've never been able to like this one. It's such an ugly sound and reminds me of grandfathers, not little girls or flowers. I see it on a very trusting, outgoing child.
Violet - Gorgeous. Trendy at the moment, though. I think a Violet would be clever, with an excellent wit and a subtle magnetic personality.
