Renny: Karen. Not that I'm biased or anything ;)
Reva: Rose Evangeline?
Zadie: No idea. Zara?
Jory: This is a standalone boy's name anyway :)
Thanks! Really great suggestions. Here's my thoughts.
Arley and Marnie-I'm thinking Marlena. I don't love it, but I think it's growing on me
Cora-I do actually really love Coretta as a full name, but Cordelia always lingers, and sometimes Coralie too
Dory-Isadora, but again not in love with it. Sometimes I toss around Dorian
Edie-Maybe Elodie. Is that a stretch? I like Elodie on it's own. Not a fan of Eden or Edith.
Etta-Odette? Maybe. I don't like a lot of other names that end in ette.
Flory-Don't like Florence. I do like Flora on it's own, but I think I like Flory better and I wouldn't use it as a nn for Flora. Florian? I don't know...
Jory-The only ones I can come up with are Jordana or Marjorie and they're just ok to me
Lottie-Don't like Charlotte! All I can think of is Carlotta, but that's not one I like that much
Mae-Probably Mavis? Thoughts on Mavis?
Maggie-Can't decide between Magdalena or Magnolia
Milly-Maybe Camilla? Millicent? Milena?
Nola-Magnolia? Finola? Winola? Can it stand on it's own?
Remy-I'm stuck. I think for a boy Remy can stand on it's own, but as a girl it feels like a nn. Does that make sense? I don't like Remington at all, but that's all I can think of.
Renny-I got nothin'
Reva-See above. Can it stand on it's own?
Ria-Rhiannon? I'm not sure how I feel about that name.
Rosey-Probably Rosalie. I love Rosalie. Actually I probably wouldn't use a nn for it. Thoughts on Rosanna?
Sylvie-Don't like Sylvia. Sylvana? I don't know if I could do Silver and I don't like that the I would change to a Y. Not sure yet about Silvie spelling but so far I'm thinking no.
Tess-I'm thinking probably Teresa. But I've kicked around Contessa in the past. And there's always Tessa.
Winnie-Winola? Winslet? Guinevere? Don't like the spelling change if using Guinevere.
Zadie-I think it could stand on it's own, but if I can find a full name for it that'd be great!
Chaz-I don't like Charles. I'm trying to make myself like Charleston. (So far no luck.)
Dax-I like the sound of this, but I feel like without something more substantial, it sounds trendy/made up. But I can't think of anything that doesn't also sound trendy/made up! (i.e. Daxton)
Jory-?? Not Jordan.
Ned-I can't get behind Edward. Is Eddard too Game of Thrones? Can Ned be used alone?
Reggie-I like Reggie, but NOT Reginald. And Regis is still too Philbin for me!
Zeb-I do kinda like Zebedee and Zebediah, but man that's a whole lotta name!
Zed-Same for Zedidiah!
