These are all boy's names. And Karson is misspelled.
I knew a girl named Winnie Rose, and I've been in love with the name ever since.
Hmm...in that case, how about some midcentury alternatives?
Carolyn/Carol: Corinne, Clarice, Colleen, Kathleen, Kay
Barbara: Blythe, Bonnie, Beatrice, Blanche, Betty, Beverly, Bethany/Beth,...
There are twists on all of these names that I vastly prefer -- Devorah instead of Deborah, Susanna instead of Susanne, Caroline (or Charlotte, or Carlotta) instead of Carolyn, Juliet instead of...

I initially joined this forum because I was in a serious relationship and my girlfriend at the time and I had started discussing names. Though we broke up, I stayed because I'm a writer as well as a...

Depends on how much you value sibset cohesion. Isaac, Matilda, and Harlow are just not a cohesive sibset. Isaac is a classic Biblical name; Matilda is a fusty, spunky, literary antique with a...
I dislike the Duggars immensely. My friends in college used to joke about making plans to spring Jinger from their clutches, since she always seemed like the family rebel.
Jana, Jill, Joseph, and...
Valentine Julius (two of my favorite names!)
Eden Lee (LOVE Eden on a boy)
My only association with Verlaine is the romantic poet of that name who had an affair with Arthur Rimbaud and was imprisoned for sodomy in Paris.

I really hate hyphens. They're such an ugly piece of punctuation. I do like double firsts in theory, though I don't know anyone who's had one (two? heh). I do, however, have a few friends who are...

I second Ianthe, Phaedra, Xanthe, Evanthe, Cosima, Hero, Nerida, Athena, Thea, Olympia, Callista, Calliope, and Thalia.
Ariadne, Nephele, Persephone, and...
I actually think that doubling two fusty vintage names can sound fresher than pairing an antique with a trendy name. Martha Mabel sounds much cooler to me than Martha Harper, for instance.
Iris Eleanor or Clara Hazel
Finn Silver or Rowan Beckett
In no real order:
6. August or Augustus
We must be on the same wavelength, because this is my all-time favorite name pattern.
I am hardcore no-boy's-names-on-girls.
I do, admittedly, have a soft spot for gender-swapped nicknames...as long as the gender-swapping goes both ways. So if you're going to nickname your...

I can't grok Story and Navy as names at all. As for the rest...

Thanks for posting! I love going through these lists. :)
Belle (overused, but still lovely)
Juniper x 2 (oh no -- Juniper is one of my oldest favorites, but x 2?? Please...

Adelaide is lovely, distinguished, spunky yet elegant, and eminently versatile. Absolutely Adelaide.

Oh man, SO MANY.
I love offbeat vintage botanicals like Iris, Dahlia, Hazel, Ivy, and Marigold.
I love old-fashioned names from the top 200 like Violet, Stella, Clara, Delilah, Scarlett, Lucy,...
