Short and simple: Jane, Mae, Clare, Belle, Rose, Lee.
Classics: Emily, Eliza, Katharine, Alice, Marie.
Home-y and sweet to me: Hannah, Bella, Lily, Molly, Jenny, Susie. I wouldn't really use Susie...

I forgot Eliezra and Ezriela.

Amethyst - Usable, I like it.
Hyacinth - GP, I really like this one but don't find it very usable. Jacinta (ha-seen-ta) is related and far more usable IMO.
Xanthe - FN, love it.
Fuschia - Don't...

Only commenting on the ones I'd consider.
Phoenix - Like, but feels a bit masculine.
Billie - Like it, but mostly as a nickname for Sybilla or Biljana.
Amethyst - Like it, also like Amarantha...
I really, really don't think of Zelda as a '90s name, so that influences my picks, which are a mix of Art Deco '20s and old-fashioned European names.
I can't get into Caleb. I speak enough Hebrew that the meaning throws me off. Nameberry has a meaning listed that's at best... sort of... indirect.
But it is that pleasant easy-going style of...
I adore Jane.
Jane Xanthe (Jane X. [Lastname] is the epitome of cool to me)
Jane Ketzia - nature name, Hebrew for the cassia tree that cinnamon is from....
I like it as a NN for Katharine, Katia, Katerina, even Katrina possibly. I wouldn't use it alone though.
I do really like Kitty as well, and find Kitty less overused than Katie, but Kitty is...

My favourites are:
Rosemary, though I associate it with its own herb more than roses themselves. I like 'rosemary for remembrance.' I also like Rosemarie and Rhosmari, but they seem like they'd...

It depends on the name and the language they're from.
Hebrew Talia and Russian Katia (half the time transliterated as Talya and Katya) are very much -ya to me.
Sophia and Olivia are ee-ah.
I prefer Cordelia. I like Delia as a nickname. I don't care for Nellie or Neely.
And I toy with a Shakespearean sibset sometimes and Cordelia would fit in well with Sebastian and Miranda. ;)

I know a little Phoenix who is adorable and super girly, (goes by Nixie!) so I don't see myself using it. But it's got the fiery image that I can see where it popped up. Thanks!

Yaaaay I'm glad you like these threads because I feel like they're really good for seeing other people's perceptions.
I kind of love Octavia, Morgana, Zenobia, and Artemesia especially. I wouldn't...
Reuven (In Hebrew, 3 syllables, r'-oo-ven, not like English Reuben).

I have a new "names for this type of girl" thing going on.
I can't help noticing that a lot of the threads describing girls to name have tiny, adorable, big-eyed little micro-girls. :) I don't...
I love LeGuin - brilliant writer - and I like Ursula.
But I feel like Ursuline might get fewer comments, maybe? I still like Ursula though. And I've known one who was a lovely and kind youngish...
I find Hadley just another -ley of the Hayley/Bayley/Kinley/Tinley sort and much prefer Hazel as distinct. Hazel might be more popular at the moment but it doesn't sound like half a dozen other...
I find Dianne quite severely dated, but Diana not nearly as much. I don't really like it, but I think it's usable. I'd prefer equally legitimate Dianthe though. Partly because I quite like Dianthus...
Ones I'd consider using:
I like Hendrix but would spell it like this. I find x's, z's, and y's endearing when they don't feel forced - if you cram too many into one name, it kills the charm.
And Hendrix doesn't need any...
Dakota makes me think of my friend who is of that background, who finds the name a grating and rude thing people who aren't Native American name their kids. I was kind of disappointed when I found...
