I too love Jane ^^
I do agree with @rkrd though about the surname. Two monosyllabic names makes for a more blunt name. The comparison to Jane Eyre is quite useful, Eyre is a very ethereal...

I usually avoid the top 100 only, so if I didn't, these names would definitely be serious contenders for my top lists:
These are my favourite one syllable B names for boys:
Blythe/Blithe (as a middle name)

@ash - YES! did I ever see Pushing Daisies, how could anyone not!? ^^ I first fell for Lee Pace in 'The Fall' though, one of my all time favourite films.
Ned and Chuck do need a happy ending, they...
Maeve / Maeva
Mireia / Miréio
I hate this whole thing, but thought I should mention Inés.
Part of the appeal with Isis for me is how rare but recognisable she is. Iris is way too common a replacement!
Inés is much better,...
English is not my mother tongue, so when I first read this I thought it meant the exact opposite of what it actually means ^^ It makes me think of someone at a party trying to get the...

I'm not too good at keeping up with new shows, so I don't have a complete picture of what's starting up this autumn.
There are some brand new shows on my to watch list though, mainly 'The Knick' and...
I have a slightly different pronunciation problem with Agnes.
In certain, more dominant dialects of Norwegian, they add an extra n to almost all names with the -gn- letter combination. Agnes...
I just read the three books with Howl and Sophie in them by Diana Wynne Jones. They were all quite delightful ^^
I am now reading The Affirmation by Christopher Priest which I might not finish. ...
Idunn - I only recently discovered how wonderful this name is! I prefer the double -nn spelling because it emphasises the -unn element which is often thought to mean 'love' (also 'wave). Id- means...

It means 'I awake' but I can never get used to hearing it... As far as meanings go, this is one of my favourites.
(I also like Hugo (mind), Alma (soul), and Enid (spirit) as a nice trio,...

I'll focus on Ophelia since it's one of my favourites as well ^^
On my own list of combos I seem to recycle for Ophelia. I have Ophelia Maud, Ophelia Jane and Ophelia Nimue several times.

I prefer Wilhelmina.
I know an adorable 5-year old girl named Wilhelmina who has Downs, she's the sweetest thing in the world, all smiles and hugs and fairytales ^^
Other long forms with a less...

On the girls list, the most recent additions would have to be:
Vieno - Finnish unisex name, means 'gentle' which I love ^^
Leonor - Used to have Leonora on the list, but Leonor feels more...
I like Solomon Hart the most. ^^
Second favourites would be Solomon Wolfe (but I prefer just Wolf) or Solomon Poe (but Poe sounds very light to me following more serious Solomon).
I also like...

Sadly, I'm the only one I know who have read any of Margaret Atwood's books, I would love to be able to argue with someone about them! Oryx and Crake is still the one I like best ^^
Indira works! ^^

I have never been able to enjoy classical literature, so my favourites are all modern. (I'm the same way with films and music though, so at least it's consistent!)
And I seem to rather exclusively...

Helen is sweet, not dated at all in my opinion ^^ It's my favourite of the ones from your list.
I adore Helena though.
I think Eleanor is a little diminished by all the Ellies running around. ...

I too mostly like soft names for boys. I have not seen too much of it being used negatively on the forums, but when I do see someone mention a boys name as soft I almost always assume it's...
I was going to suggest nordicnames.de as well, it's very accurate and extensive!
I also sometimes use a site called 20000-names.com, but their information is not always correct. They do have a...
I would go with Garland actually. Maybe nn Lana?
Alternatively GH initials, Gloria Heloise, Greta Hazel, Greer Helena, Gale Hadriana, Gomeisa Hero, Grey Hannelore, Gaia Honour.
Magdalena is awesome with Penelope.
Matilda seems a little insubstantial or childish next to Penelope in my opinion...
Matilda is becoming so expected for me, and I adore Magdalena so that's what I voted for.
However, I much prefer Tilda to Lena.
Tilda is my preferred nn for Matilda, I dislike Tilly or Mattie....
