Willow Myfanwy is darling.
Just a few ideas:
Willow Mirain ('lovely')
Willow Seirian ('sparkling')

Fifaltra – makes me think of farfalle, the bowtie pasta. I'm generally suspicious of 'word names' from foreign languages, even long-dead historical ones like Old High German. On one hand, Fifaltra is...
I'm also reminded of the Beyonce song; admittedly I've had 'baby I can see your halo (halo, halooo...)' stuck in my head once or twice. But those times I remember thinking it had a...
I like the nickname 'Asta'. For me it calls to mind this painting (portrait of Princess Augusta, 1768-1840). :) I don't know... While a grand old name, and gorgeous on paper, I'm afraid it's one I...

I like the suggestion of Lucy Jean = NOT cloying, in the least. ;)
Vinje so intrigues me! I'd pronounce it 'VIN-ya', like 'vineyard' (or the end of Lavinia). Only somewhat complex, and a lovely,...

OK, here goes more nothing... :)
Me too; I say 'AV-eh-leen,' like Avalon (or avenue, or the French word... sort of), and 'AYV' like Maeve.
I do like Aveline with an 'ah,' as in Ave Maria – i.e. first syllable rhyming with...
Audrey "Dree" (or Adriana)
Gillian "Jill" (cheating?)
Susanna "Zanna" (I'm thinking...

Hi, sleepysessha! :)
For you I like Yvaine, Nyneve, and maybe...
Sunniva – which I'm tentatively pronouncing (mispronouncing?) /sun-EEV-a/
Ivalu – or Ivalo, as seen on Denmark's Princess Josephine...

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.
