Aww, glad you think so! :)
I believe Trudeliese was the only smush-name I suggested; to my (limited) knowledge, Elswitha/Elswyth/Alswitha/etc. comes from the Old English (Anglo-Saxon) name...

Your name is so pretty!
Adeliza, Azalaïs, Adosinda, Alruna, Aregund
Edeline, Ethelind, Elswyth/Elswitha, Ethelwynn, Etelvina, Erdmuthe, Erelieva, Everelda
I just read that the mother of Angelica Kauffman (18c. painter) was named Cleophea; I've also seen Cléophée (=the French equivalent?).
There's also Cleome (a flower), Cleodora (a Greek nymph,...
Emmie Jean is cute, a bit like Imogene.
Emmeline Fleurette "Emmie Fleur"
Emmeline Audrey "Emmie Dree"
Emmeline Isabetta "Emmie Bette"
Emmeline Sybella "Emmie Belle"
Emmeline Zipporah "Emmie...
Judith "Jody" or "Jude"
Viola, Violaine, Virginia
Aw, you're mosttt welcome!!!
Calla Persephone is gorgeous, I have to agree...
And, just a few more ideas? :p
Calla Midnight, Calla Myfanwy
Calla Neptunine, Calla Nimuë, Calla...
Calla Siún (shoon)
I like Isla Penelope, actually!
I asked my 13-year-old sister sitting across from me now, and she simply said, "I would hate to be named Morning Glory." (And at her age my favorite name was Sweetbrier.) I salute your...
I prefer Emerentia or even Emmaretta (= vaguely reminiscent of Amoret) to Emerietta, which barely fits into one name. (Emery Etta makes a lot more sense, not that I'm recommending it.) By the same...
I love Essie! It could also be short for Esyllt (or Eseld), Elisabeth (apparently), or Estrill (which was used in medieval England) – but I like Estella best, I think. :)
For me it's something of a guilty pleasure, like Siddalee. To my American ears, the Swedish pronunciation ("NOO-vah-lee") is reminiscent of NuvaRing. But only slightly... overall it's got a lovely,...
Sounds sort of like the literary Anitra, no? :confused: It's pretty, anyhow.
It's less intuitive, maybe, but Elisabeth of Bavaria, Empress of Austria, was called "Sisi" (sometimes spelled "Sissi"). So there's also Elisabeth, Lisbeth, etc.
Ooh, Lyra Colette and Lyra Simone are lovely! Lyra Daphne I like too, though both names remind me of Greek myth (the lyre of Orpheus + the nymph turned into a laurel).
I had a great-great-aunt Inez, also pron. with a long I (her nickname was "Inie," = "tiny" sans T), which I can only assume was an Americanized pronunciation (of Spanish Inés). She would have been...
I'd love to meet a Xaviera, I think it's stunning. :)
Eva Rosalind, Dahlia Maris, Mina Romilly = 4
Esme Isaline (hm, Esme Viviette?), Aria Rosamund, Serena Maris = 3
Claudia Briony, Clarabella Poppy, Lena Tamsin = 2 (names I like well enough –...
Alverdine (19c. feminization of Alfred – sounds like Everdeen in my head)
I like Esme too. If you aren't opposed to nicknames, Roma could be short for Rosamund or Ramona (as could Romy). Elke is sort of charming, like a more palatable Helga.
Saskia, Roxana, Romée, Ismay,...
Minna meant "(loving) memory" in Old High German (info).
Tizita means "memory" in Amharic (growing up my sister had a lovely Ethiopian friend by this name, which everyone pron. as /tih-ZEE-ta/)....
I like the sound, even though it reminds me of India's Corbett National Park, named for the big game hunter Jim Corbett. Actually, I know next to nothing about him, and Wikipedia makes him sound...

Ophelia O'Brien is tremendously appealing, and Beatrix too, but ultimately my heart belongs to Magdalene: one I'm actually considering myself. I love its romantic look and sound but most of all, the...
I remember liking Persis immediately the first time I noticed it in my yout'. It's soft, attractive; I also like Persida, the form borne by a 19c. Serbian princess (which I might pronounce like...
