I think Ivor is great! It has family associations for me so I have considered adding it to my list. It feels very Welsh to me, even though obviously it's origins aren't actually Welsh. It's a very...
It is pronounced Av-uh-LEEN, it's a beautiful name
What both kimigrace and Mischa said is exactly what I was going to say except I probably couldn't have worded it as well. Basically Niamh is a pretty Irish name that is not that hard to get the hang...

Well I guess you'll like a course with lots of lectures then, so maybe PBL is not for you :) The majority of courses will contain PBL to a certain extent, but some more than others. The school...
Sabrina Rosalie "Bri" - not a fan of Sabrina, all I think of is Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Rosalie is pretty, the flow is ok but a bit off
Hermione Sienna "Maia" - I like Hermione and wish I could...

I don't know what it's like for other international students, but I was going to apply to study medicine in Ireland and the academic entry requirements were much tougher than for the UK (my good A...
No need for the next person to rate my signature, just wanted to post again to apologise to @sigma! I started doing my post before you posted yours but I kept going away and coming back to it so it...

If you have any more questions about medical schools in the UK, feel free to ask me. I can't guarantee that I'll be any help, but I'll try :)
Adelina Sophia - 7/10 Adelina is really pretty, one of my favourites and Sophia is nice (though overused as a first). As a combo it is a bit frilly for me with them ending -ina and -ia

I think (I haven't looked much into this) that after completing a medical degree here you can apply for residency posts in the USA but the competition is much fiercer than home students so is very...

Ahh ok. I don't know how much you know about the system here so sorry if you already know this (and sorry if I've got anything wrong - I am going to be a medical student this year and have done lots...

I don't think I can be much help other than to add that I would also recommend Bath! I applied there (for a different course and ended up not accepting my offer as I was applying elsewhere for...
There are some exceptions (as always with this kind of thing!) but I pretty much always say -ee-uh. I find the -yuh sound unattractive. I have never even heard names like Amelia, Olivia, Ophelia,...
The only person I've ever known called Antonia pronounced it An-TOH-nee-uh, but when saying it fast it always came out more like An-TOH-nya (I always dislike the sound of -ya at the end of names...
@tiannarose - the only other one I could think of was Tia and I felt the same, it's just nowhere near as magical as Hestia
@isioleth - thanks :)
@geeknamezyo - yeah, I thought of hussy too and...
I love Hestia and (at the moment!) would love to name a future (long way in the future) daughter Hestia.
Would Hessie be a ridiculous nn?
If you think it would be, can you think of any other...

I'm pretty sure it's oh-TEE-lee-uh but I can't help pronouncing it OH-tih-lee! (OH like in cot, tih like in tick, lee like in leaf)
I'm really confused about your pronunciation AH-ty-lee, are you...

I have always said Muh-TEE-us but I think if you wanted Muh-TYE-us it wouldn't be too hard to enforce.
I have never heard Muh-THIGH-us and I think the name loses it's beauty when pronounced that way.
Ayrie is interesting, I've never heard it before. How is it pronounced (I was assuming AIR-ee)? Do you know anything about the history of the name?
I wouldn't know if Ayrie was a girl or a boy so...
I absolutely adore the name Leander! It is one of my favourite names.
I don't think that Liam and Leander go that well together because they both begin with the same sound, even though I think...
I second the suggestion of Asa, I think Ace is a cute nn
Foxlynn! I met a little girl called Foxlynn! I live in England where I'm pretty sure the trend of adding -lynn to the end of everything to make a girls' name isn't anywhere near as big as in the US...

Kjartan was definitely easiest, it's the only one I got exactly right without hearing the pronunciation. It's said how it looks and everyone knows (I think?) that in Scandinavian and other similar...
I have always been obsessed with names and made a note of names I heard that I liked and a few years ago I decided to research the names I liked, and to look for new names. I noticed that one of the...
