    I like Eleanor much more than Elisabeth. The "s" in Elisabeth is quite off-putting to me.

    Eleanor is quite elegant and regal though. My favourite nicknames for Eleanor are Elle or Ella.

    I do...

    Sybil is far and away my favourite of your options. (also love Sibyl). It has an elegant history and a nice meaning, don't mind the hack book. I have Sibyl on my own list.

    I don't mind Sophie Ann...

    I like Gretchen well enough. I really can't stand Greta though.

    Gretchen has a tailored sound and doesn't sound over-sweet. I also like -n ending names for both genders, as long as it's not a...

    I prefer Aaliyah for Arabic or Aliyah for Hebrew.

    Alia is another legit Arabic name but calling Aaliyah a mispelling/variant only isn't really right. They're spelled differently in Arabic. علياء...

    I like it as a NN for Annabel or Belphoebe, but would be likelier to use Belle as a standalone name than Bel.

    I'm sad, I had a whole post that got eaten.

    Anyway, I love Biblical boys' names. The starred ones I've known in real life. I use that as a guide that they ARE SO usable! The ones on the same line,...

    Strongly in favour of Yvette.

    1) Evette being a Hebrew name, not sure I buy that. I am pretty sure they are simply saying it's a variant of Eve, and Eve is a Biblical name...? (It's not how it...

    I've always found Emma rather insipid. Even in terms of popular names, Emma never even appealed to me as much as Emily.

    Marie feels light but vintage, like eyelet lace. I don't think I've EVER met...

    Elizabeth by miles.

    I do find Elsie kind of revolting but even if I wanted to use it no way would I give up the Elizabeth spelling for it.

    Isidora and Theodora are both really cute.

    I love Saoirse. And I prefer seer-sha.

    Saoirse Ronan, for what it's worth, has said herself she doesn't 'say it correctly.'

    I wouldn't respell it. It'd be Seersha, I guess, for clarity? Most...

    Iola is the natural one. It means 'violet' and I love it.

    Ione is quite appealing, and maybe more modern sounding than Iola.

    I love Naomi but it's not very current.

    I'm very fond of Ramona...

    Esme - Love this one. Would be willing to consider May, though, if the Es- is problematic. May is quite classic in its own right.
