Dulcie is a very pale pink with white glitter, like colourized sugar.
Emma is pink and cloying.
Nina is that subtle beige-pink of ballet slippers.
Samantha is Hello Kitty pink.
Emma seems a lot...
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.

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...
Cy for Cyrus I really like
Moss - was originally a NN for Moses/Moshe, now might be mistaken for hipster nature name?
Ike, Izzy - The classic old Jewish man NNs for Isaac/Isidore/Isaiah.
Isidore - itself one...

So just some liquid l sounds?
Iris and Luna are my favourites of yours.
Zella - This is one the Lost Names of 1910 List and one of its backgrounds is from the Biblical Zillah, meaning 'shadow.'

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.
Joaquin is a form of it. Same as Rachel and Raquel.
(Joaquin is the form I'd go with if given the choice)
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...
I think it's running completely counter to the trends for either vowelly-liquid girly names OR modern boys' names, so it's out in the cold for people who like Olivia/Liliana/Ariana/Eliana/Aaliyah...
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.
Izolda and Isola are spunky.
I'm oddly attached to Izora.
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.
Elodie - Don't care for this at all. Eliza or Emily is more my...
