My favorites are Vienna, Geneva, and Georgia.
Least favorites are Brooklyn (even worse, Brooklynn), Paris, and Londyn (it's just... worse that way).

Stella and Marina would be so perfect together!
Besides the Boy Meets World association (which probably won't matter for little kids nowadays) I just don't think Topanga has a very pretty sound.
I reread your post, and I agree with some pps- Anna and Isabel are great together, why not keep them separate? They're both lovely on their own as well.

I love Isobel and Isabel, but there's something fresh and spunky about Isobel. Isabel is also lovely, though. It's amazing how much more I like it than Isabelle, which I find far too frilly. ...
There's nothing inherently wrong with this name, but something about it is just not... grounded to me. It sounds like more of a noise than a name. Kind of a tongue twister. Maybe it also reminds...
I don't care for it on either gender, but it definitely is more boy to me. I'm not opposed to place names (love Vienna and Geneva), but the reason I don't like it is that it's a really, really...
I do like it, but I really prefer the spelling Annabel. Annabelle is just too frilly and too many double letters for me. Something about Annabel is classier and more streamlined.

Sophia- I've never cared for this name. I know about 10 older Greek ladies named Sophia or Sophie, so that's what it makes me think of. I do prefer the Sofia spelling, if I had to choose.

I like Claire Elizabeth better anyway, but it is also much nicer with your last name :)
I just looked it up and it looks like Caitriona is another Gaelic variant of Catherine, so I apologize for saying it looked made up! :) But yes, it's pronounced like Katrina.

I think she wants Lana pronounced just like Lana Del Ray and Lana turner. Which is technically the correct or at least most common pronunciation. Not with the Lan- sounds that is in the word "land."

I agree with pp that Lonna takes away from the beauty of the name. I would also pronounce it more like 'LAWN-uh" than Lahn-a. I know you've been struggling with the spelling of this name for fear...
I've seen Catriona, but I'm not familiar with the Caitriona spelling. It kind of looks like a mistake.
Just wondering- how would you pronounce this? Catriona is pronounced like Katrina, but a...
Jane is classic and timeless. I think it sounds fresh now after a few decades of limited use. Love it!
Jenna is ok, but very dated to the 90s in my opinion.
Macy is a much nicer spelling than Maci, in my opinion. Maci is very Teen Mom (it actually skyrocketted in popularity after Teen Mom).
Are you in the U.K. or a country that uses the term water closet? In the U.S. no one would even think about it.
That said, I like Adelaide about 100x more than Wren.
My favorites are Naomi, Eva, and Cecelia. (Although I definitely prefer the Cecilia spelling).

Seraphina, Sarah, Lauren, and any form of Katherine/Katharine/Catherine/Kate/Katie.
Sorry- you both must have misunderstood. I didn't mean that noun names aren't suitable for humans (of course they are. I adore Violet, actually). I meant that in my opinion, having a flower and...
I think it's just fine- I agree with pps that Willemina is a bit better. I would also pronounce it a bit differently, as I do kind of say the h in Wilhelmina.

I agree with pps... Viola and Winter aren't popular in the slightest. Just because the names are discussed on here doesn't make them popular. They are not obscure, if that is what you're after.

I actually like it. I think alliteration can sound great. I'm not concerned with the A and y as much as the repeating r sound, but I still think it's nice. Ashley Avery actually sounds a little...
Yes. They are not only all flowers, but purple flowers. For pets it would make sense, but not human siblings.
I don't like it because I don't think it's fair to Olive. Violet is a lovely, sophisticated sound, that makes people think of a beautiful flower. Olive is mousey and conjures thoughs of olive oil...
I would use a long name that doesn't end with the -n sound.
June Elise (not long but I like how it sounds)
