When I was living in France, everyone pronounced my name with the stress on the last "a", when in Brazil the stress is on the "ta". It really irritated me when people kept pronouncing it wrong after...
Well, she did say she was going to list Hobbit names. Arwen, Elrond and Galadriel are Elves; and Eowyn and Aragorn are Human.
Now, to the names!
Adaldrida - A bit of a tongue-twister...

I like Gretel and I agree it should be paired with names that soften it a bit. Gretel Louisa Maeve flows really well (I prefer Maeve to Mae) and the only problem I see with it is that Louisa is also...
I absolutely adore the name Santiago. I love how it sounds, how it links to my Spanish heritage and it's not popular at all where I live. Also, when I see this name I remember all the little shells...
I love love loooove Amalia. It's my front-runner if I ever have a girl (like, ten years from now). It sounds really good in the middle too. I don't think there would be much confusion about...
Well, this is a coincidence! I was just now looking through names meaning "fire" when I saw this thread in the home page of nameberry! While I was searching, I found this post:...

@kjj: Welcome! Brazilians are everywhere it seems. I'm from São Paulo so about 7 hours from Curitiba by car, I guess. Not really that far if you consider that Curitiba is in another state and I have...

My favourite word name is Alma. I love the sound and the meaning: soul. I'm not sure how it would be received back home since we don't really use word names in Brazil (except for flowers). I'll have...
Pernille: An anxiety attack doesn't sound fun :( I've gotten a little better about it these last few months since my french teacher at Uni keeps picking my group for oral presentations (they offer...
Gosh, I feel like finals are going to kill me this semester. I need to pass all my classes so that my University back in Brazil accepts my credits and I can graduate on time...
I think Waverly is a really pretty name and very usable, if you want to go with a less popular option. However, I have to say that Isabel is my favourite on your list. In my opinion, it's such a...
Brenna - It's an ok name, I guess. I just find a bit unremarkable
Tinsley - I don't really like Tinsley, I'm not sure why... maybe because it reminds me of tinsel (being so close to Christmas and...

I think both Lucia Charlotte Eve and Charlotte Lucia Eve are gorgeous combinations but, even though I think I like Lucia a little bit better as a first name, I like the flow of Charlotte Lucia Eve...
My favourite from your list is definitely Elizabeth, followed by Alexandra and then Victoria.
My personal favourite classic girl names are, in order of preference:

I have a friend called Bruna whose older brother is Bruno... I wonder what their parents would call a third child (perhaps Breno/ Brena?).
I think my dad and his siblings are also a bit mismatched:...
I like both Lucia Madeleine and Lucia Eleanor on your list. However, my favourite Lucia combo is Lucia Celeste. I just think that having a name meaning "heavenly light" would be awesome.

Thanks for the welcome! I actually know more about Canada than America since I spent a month studying english in Vancouver but have never been to the U.S. I loved Canada, and would really like to go...
Sorry to interrupt the conversation going on but I'd like to introduce myself. Hi, everyone! My name's Natalia, I'm 21 and a Law student. I'm originally from Brazil but I'm living in Paris for the...
@carolinemchd: Essa resposta vai ser um pouco comprida. Eu sempre gostei muito de ler, mas também sempre fui muito teimosa com o que eu queria que acontecesse com os personagens. Então, depois que os...
@esrever88: It is really interesting to see how a name can travel around the world. Though I supose greek and latin names are the most universal ones (I once met a Natalia from South Korea, I was...
This semester I'm on an exchange program in Paris and heve used my free time here to travel around Europe. I've met a lot of people in my travels from many different countries and I...
My dad wanted to name me Julia, which was a really terrible idea since my older sister is Juliana (I mean, really? Juliana and Julia?). Thank God my mom vetoed that idea. She wanted to name me...
