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:
Katrina - A bit clunky, slightly...
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...
Adah is NOT AH-dah, it's a-DAH. With the accent on the second syllable. http://www.forvo.com/word/%D7%A2%D7%93%D7%94/#he
Ada is sometimes AH-da. I've heard it that way before. Spanish influence in...
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...

Ones I'd use or favourites I can't use:
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 adore both Ramona and Veronica and that's a hard choice for me.
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:
Miranda, Morgan, and Maybelle
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...

What was Allen's Hebrew name? Some of them have pretty direct feminizations...? Do you know what the Hebrew name (not necessarily on the birth certificate - I'm Jewish and most people in my family...

Marie-Irene and Marie-Soleil
Lily-Belle and Lily-Bette
Jane-Marie and Lila-Jane
Guilty pleasures - Rose-Red and Jenny-Wren
Cassia and Ketzia (cinnamon feels autumn-y to me)
Crisanta and Chrysanthe
Oh I love Bram
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.
Some I like alone. Of yours I like as standalone...
Annabel - Love.
August - Love for a boy only. I like Augusta for a girl?
Heidi - I loathe this name intensely.
Isobel - I like Isabel. I don't like Isobel unless you're Scottish I guess.
Mixture of English Biblical and Hebrew Biblical here. A lot of my favourites are vetoed by my husband, starred are real possibilities I might get to use.
I love Kitty. I mostly go back and forth between Ketzia, Kalanit, and various forms of Katharine for it - either Katharine, Katia, Kathleen, or Katrina.
Ketzia and Kalanit are Hebrew nature names,...

I voted for Flora but my other faves are:
Felicia and Felicity
Gen is cute. So is Idgie. Iggie is a bit funky but could work on the right girl.
You could call Emilia Millie? Immy and Millie rather than Gen and Emmy?
I like Imogen a lot more than Emilia so...

I love these three of your four finalists:
Phoebe - Pretty, moonlight name, but with history to it.
Rose - Classic, beautiful with a long middle name, very unexpected up front.
Felicity - I love...
Charlotte is lovely but for me personally is always just edged out by sister-name Caroline, which feels less popular and more Little House on the Prairie. (Both are classics and Top 100 so it's...
Tansy - Uncommon, nice meaning.
Casey or Cassidy
Holly - I think it wears better than Hadley, and it's less popular.
