    I adore Ramona. Geraldine is actually in the same category as far as characterful names you don't hear on Nameberry?

    Names like it, to me, uncommon on nameberry:

    I like both. They have different feels to me though.

    I don't see Nathan as incomplete - it's a Biblical name in its own right. I hate Ethan, but I like Nathan. It's a calm sort of name. It's not...

    I'd be tempted to go with Valeriana. It's a real name, it's related to Valerie by etymology, you could call her Annie without using a nick of the second name and disregarding the first, and it's not...

    Beatrice is lovely. Trixie is not. Glad you don't like Trixie. Betty or Bee is cute as a nickname though.

    Ingrid is nice, it's been on and off my own list. It is a bit harsh sounding (or very...

    Rosemary and Rosamund are other ways to Romy, and considerably nicer IMO than Romana or Romilly.

    I like Ramona though - its meaning is admirable, it's strong sounding, the o gives it some life. I...

    I say more ez-zee-kee-el - a shorter e sound similar to Ezra. That's also how the Ezekiels I've heard of say it.

    I've never heard it with an "ee" at the front. Don't know where that came from.

    I don't like any of your names, sorry. I slightly favour your ABC names: Auden, Brielle, and Connelly.

    If it were me I'd go with:

    Aurora, Beatrice, and Celestine

    I like Edie but I prefer Enid/Everild/Emerald as far as clunky or quirky E names.

    I normally like -th names. So I'm not sure why I don't like Edith. Elspeth is far more charming to me.

    I like Rosalind much more, though not as much as I adore Rosemary and Rosamund. Rosalind is a more regal name, it's not particularly "cute" but it's not trying to be. It and Rosamund have a level of...

    I generally like them as NNs, like privacyplease I kind of like the flexibility of a NN and a longer (perhaps uncommon) first. But that's me.
