I have a [very chaotic] listography to keep track of all the names I've ever been remotely interested in/make random, not-necessarily-favorites lists, plus a much more comprehensive excel spreadsheet...
Since I last posted I've finished 1Q84 (really liked it!) and also Kazuo Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go. It was very depressing, but excellent writing/characterization.
Now I'm about to finish...

@mckaylalove: I watch Korra too! Really, really nervous about Friday's episode. Yikes.
And I've been meaning to watch Orange is the New Black forever but just haven't gotten around to it. Maybe...

I'm not super up to date on what's new this fall, but I am definitely ridiculously stoked for the new season of Sleepy Hollow. They left off on such a huge cliffhanger!
I'm sure I'll think of more...

Have Gia, Isa, Aira and Eira been mentioned yet? Augusta_lee's list was pretty comprehensive.
Of your favorites, Emily, I'm really fond of June, Ada, Mira, Asha, Maren, Zara, Freya and Calla. Ada...
@lawsonhaley: do opheliaflora's names!
Yikes, these posts are piling up on top of each other. Since no one's done senseandsensibility yet, I'll go back and do hers here, and the next person can do Opheliaflora's? I don't mind if mine get...
Mary - 5/10; it's NMS but I like seeing it around.
Ophelia - 8.5/10. A popular choice here on NB that has all my favorite sounds in it.
Lily - 6.5/10. A slightly bland but very pleasant name. ...
I vote Alexia (sleeker and more sophisticated somehow) and Anna Eloise (Annaliese feels somewhat overbearing to me, while Anna feels down-to-earth and fun.)
Honorable mentions: Damaris, Esmeralda, Hermione, Tahlia
Some of my favorite goddess names are Babylonian/Sumerian: Ishtar/Inanna, Inara, and Tiamat. Those are fairly out there, though.
Of the Norse goddesses, I think Sif is possibly the most wearable...
Has anyone suggested Vesper yet? That usually gets thrown out there when discussing edgy word names. I like it with Phoenix.
I like the suggestions of Avalon and Echo for girls and Griffin and...

Definitely Rosalind Joanna Maeve! They're all lovely, well-thought out combos, though.
I like Xiou and Xia. X deserves more usage, and I love how it sounds in Chinese.
I agree, Phoebe Marin is the standout.
- Adelia (a-DAY-lee-ah) and Amelie: Too close for sisters, but I'd keep both on the list so you keep your options open. Also, not sure if this matters to you but the one I know pronounces it...
I'm American, and I don't think the O gets dropped so much as softened. Leonor, for example, becomes something like Leah-noor instead of Leo-noor. The exception, like pp said, is Leona. The only Leo-...
This is a tough one. On the one hand, the flow of "Elodie Evelyn" is not ideal. On the other hand, neither is Maisie __ Marie.
I think Elodie is a tad more substantial, will age better, and fits a...

Yep, totally works for both names IMO.
I've heard of the movie, but I still didn't think of it when I saw Lily Victoria and wouldn't have made the connection if you hadn't pointed it out. I think Lily and Victoria are both popular/classic...
My favorite names on your list are Lillian and Lena, but since Emerson is a unisex surname I might go for Delaney with that one.

Hmm. Yeah, I'd find it a little weird. I don't think Marisol is quite at the level of Inez or Isabel in terms of cultural assimilation yet. If you decide not to use it for those reasons, you could...
1) Yep, I agree with the name nerds saying the flow is off, etc. They're both nice names, though.
3) If not for the matchy -ee sounds (if it were, say, Phoebe Naoma) the flow would be fine....

Misspelled? I very occasionally get Gwin or Gwyn. And my surname has several variations + an apostrophe and is constantly, constantly misspelled. I'm more surprised when someone gets it right.
