I love your names though I agree with the first reply that it should be Arella with two ls.
I think you would also like Cliora.

I would go with Ambriel (nn Ellie or Amy?) rather than Ambrietta. I like Ambriel Madeleine as a combo.
Other A names...Ashka, Adeline, Azelie, Aleria, Aditi, Aleia, Aella, Alianne

I love the combo Sansa Vivienne! I think it is a lovely name that yes, some people will recognise from GoT but to my mind that's a bonus as it means they are likely to know how to pronounce it!
I really like Liara. Like Lara but fresher.
I love Xena. I don't think it was invented for the show - I know a Xena and she's too old to have been named after the warrior princess.

Oh gosh, yes, Ava Grace is such an overdone combo!
It's a lovely name, but like many of the popular names, it seems less lovely when it's overused and when the child will end up being "Ava S" or...

I've never heard anyone pronounce it the first way.

I LOVE this idea. Eliza Stefani is gorgeous, and you can still call her Lizzy.
Zara Gabriella - would prefer a different ending on one of the names. Zara Gabrielle or Zarine Gabriella?
Olivia Theodora/Olivia Raphaella - same. Olivia Raphaelle or Olivie Theodora?
I love Nina, I think it needs a long dramatic middle though to compensate for its simplicity.

I prefer Mara. Mostly I think of the book title The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. I think it sounds fresh but simple.
Mari I don't like as much because it might as well be Marie to my mind. There's...

I prefer Alanna because of the Alanna in the books by Tamora Pierce, and I just think it has a nicer shape, but I like the sequence you've suggested. :-D

I have tried to think of those which have a definite "Al" sound - you could probably make an Alberta/Albertina/Albertine nn Ally but some people could be tempted to called her Bertie.

As an atheist I would feel uncomfortable giving my child such a religious name - as anonymousperson says it means "follower of Christ". I'd be okay with saints' names but Christina is a step too far,...
I love it but it is very trendy here.
I love it! I am 100% in favour of names for girls to grow into - hopefully they'll be women for a lot lot longer than they were babies!
I actually really like Nanette. I haven't heard it much before, though I know a couple of Annettes. I think it could be fresh paired with the right mn.

When I saw the thread title I assumed it was a French variant of Olivia. I think it's really pretty.

Lina - that's the one I would choose!

Thirded! I love Adele as a first name and agree that this solves the 'El el' problem nicely.
March 12th, 2014, 08:39 AM
I just remembered, I know an Isatta.
Ooh, I didn't think of Betty, Bessie, or Birdie!

Isolde is my favourite, but I also found:
I feel like it's a bit too twee as a whole name, so I'd use Marnina, then she can choose whether to stay Marnie or not as she grows up.
