As you know, my style is very heavily based off the Victorian and Georgian era's, with a bit of the Tudor and Medieval eras mixed in. There are some names that I should/want to love, but something small is holding me back. I'd love to hear what you think of these, and hopefully your opinions will stop me from swaying! The names are;
The reason you don't love these as much is because they are more common, more acceptable in the 21st century. For example, Emily and Alice are both very common names. I think, from what you've said your style is, is that you like older, more unique, longer/ frillier names. Closser to Morwenna and Cosima.
Christiana- Don't care for this, but maybe because I don't like any names that have the nickname Chirs.
Lavinia- This is so pretty! I think of gold dresses and pearls.
Emily- Not a fan of this, I know too many Emily's/Emilee's.
Hannah- Also not a fan, but also because of personal associations.
Ruth- Prefer as a middle.
Genevieve- Love Genevieve. Maybe the nickname Genny is throwing you off?
Morwenna- Not a favorite, but it certainly is intersting.
Celeste- Also not a favorite.
Cosima- I get this name mixed up quite a bit in my head. I read it as Cosmia.
Dorothy- Like Dorothy, LOVE Dorothea.
Frances- Cute, like the nickname Fanny.
Alice- Very pretty, losing some lust though.
Cecily- Very pretty, but not as pretty as Celia.
Clarissa- Never cared for Clarissa.
Esther- LOVE Esther, and Hester. I would consider it Victorian.
Violet- I really like Violet.
May- Very pretty. Like as a middle name or nickname for Mary/Margaret
Mercy- This is alright. Prefer Clemency/Clementine.
Maude-I think this is pretty, but a bit stuffy.
Ada- I LOVE Ada. It has such sweet spunk.
Agnes- I also love Agnes! It seems very simple and calm, reminding me of the early Victorian era.
Gwenllian- This name is starting to grow on me. Love the nickname Gwen.
