I like it. If I met a girl named Brunhilde I'd be so smitten.
I think it's a bit long. And yeah, I can't get the rhythm yet. All pretty names, though.
How many syllables is your last name?
Re: Pronunciation issues. I think because there are so few people who carry the name in real life, you have some options when it comes to Rowena. Will teachers likely call her roh-EE-nuh? Maybe?...
I'm so glad you like nickname Rue! I wish I'd thought of it, but Berries were the ones to suggest it to me for my still yet unnamed girly. It is really adorabe, both feminine and tomboyish at the...
How about Hedwig? Quirky and a tad clunky, but a very beautiful name. There is also the variation Edwige, which is slightly less clunky, and won't be so associated with the owl so strongly....
I'm fond of your list. Here are some you might like:
Beatrix Winter is perfection.
It would make me so happy to know there was a little child running about with this lovely name.

I like Manam, it's quite sweet, actually. I'm sorry you got teased about it growing up! I had a strange name, too.
As previous posters have said, I like the idea of using a nickname if you aren't...
I would assume it was pronounced in the same way as the literary term. A sweet name. Not my style per se, but kind of funky and refreshing. Because it's archaic and hardly heard of, I find it less...
I say it with the hard 'i' sound rather than the soft, so that the last syllable rhymes with 'brine' (as in a turkey).
This is the more popular pronunciation, I believe.

Sounds like you're in a tough spot, and I'm sorry to hear it. You might try explaining to him that the names he thinks of as being "modern" and "contemporary" and suitable for a 21st century girl are...
Catherine Grace is a bit predictable, but I've not met any little Catherines recently (and have met fifty billion little Charlottes, it seems like).
Catherine is a lovely name--I just might...
It's super cute. I'm not as keen on Winnie, but since it's what so many people call my little girl, I suppose it's grown on me : )

Of your proposed addendums, I really like Edith, Esther, Sibyl, and Astrid. May I also suggest Aster?
Charlotte is lovely, but like you said, soooooo very popular. Perhaps it can...

I like Rowan Lake.
I want to love Rowan Winter, but the sounds run into each other a bit.
ETA: How about Rowan Paige?
Dahlia Faye is precious.
Great list. I love Louise, Mabel, and Selah.
Selah Louise could be really gorgeous, too. Or Selah Faye! A little country, but it also sounds super joyous and...

Not particularly fond of Djuna or Vita, but they seem like perfectly fine names all the same.
Cora is cute, and I like it. I like Edwina when pronounced "EH-dwinn-uh," but not when pronounce...

I like it, but yeah, it won't fly with that spelling, I don't think.
Side note, a sirin is a cool figure in Russian mythology, though usually pronounce "seerin."
Jane Elliot is pretty cute!
Grace feels a little plain to me in the middle spot, especially when paired with Jane -- which isn't exactly common -- but certainly isn't strange, either.
I had a difficult time choosing between Margot Plum and Margot Rosalie. Margot Plum is sweet-as-pie, and Margot Rosalie is a little more serious. It also doesn't flow as well as the primer. Primrose...
Claudia feels a little dated to me since I know many women between forty and sixty with the name, but I think I can see the appeal.
I'm really fond of Bernadette. Funky and quirky. Dusty but cute!

Aww, I like Marjeanne. I feel like I've heard it before? And as a middle name, it's totally fine.
Ella Marjeanne is really cute, but I fear compared to Otto, Ella is a bit popular.

And I get "tired" of names before I should because of a distorted sense of popularity.
For example, I don't recall having ever met a young Ruby, but the name seems rather old hat to me...
Mary Vera is a bit r-heavy, and doesn't quite sound right when I say it out loud. I like the idea of it, however. My vote would be Mary Vera or Mary-Vera. MaryVera looks very strange, a bit like a...
Margo doesn't strike me as particularly French--at least no more than, say, Michelle. It's one of those names with French origins, but it's been popular in a number of places.
It's a beautiful...
