Dusty A names...
...I love Ambrose, Alastair, Amos, and August. I even love Alan, which is in old-but-not-old-enough-to-be-cool for a lot of people.
...I love Ari and Arturo,...
I should add I don't think there's ANYTHING wrong with using an English pronunciation and I wasn't trying to be a snot. I'm quite fond of a number of English versions of Biblical names, especially...
קְצִיעָה <--if this even formats right. Anyway, the little dot under the second-from-the-right letter is the "ee" sound vowel. I can see it on my screen, let me know if it comes out blank on yours....
Technically, wouldn't the correct pronunciation, if there's only one right answer, be the Hebrew? That site even specifies that the Hebrew has an "ee" sound. I'm not sure how to evaluate the correct...
Elisabeth - No
Elizabeth - Yes!
Amber - Yes
Ember - Yes
Lark - No
Robin - Yes, barely. I don't know.
Wren - Yes
Emberly - Not at all ever
Ebony - Yes
Everly - No
I like a lot of other z/x names more.
I just dislike it, sorry. I don't think it should be "left to the girls" because I don't really think it sounds great as a given name on anybody.
I think it's a lovely, underused Biblical name with a nature meaning, and since I like Biblical names and I'm a garden nerd who adores names of trees/plants it's kind of my jam.
So that's the good...

Grace Ione - Ione being "violet" in Greek. This would be my #1 pick.
Grace Ianthe - another "violet" name.
Anna Lilac - I really love Lilac. I prefer it to Lavender for some reason....
Noelle Delilah - Delilah's just revolting to me, sorry. Noelle is pretty.
Noelle Seraphina - This is really pretty.
Willow Seraphina - I like this.
Meadow Rose - I'm not into Rose as a middle...
Foster Grey - No. Grey is too trendy to me, and Foster too beer-ish and too surname-y. Unless it's a family name? In any case, I would consider a trendy 1-syllable word middle OR a surname but never...

Juno Valor - Not bad. I think Juno has potential.
Ophelia Fox - A tragic suicide broken and driven mad by a rude lover isn't what I think of as a strong heroine. Ophelia is a porcelain doll to me....
Debbie/Debra - I find Deborah appealing in a strong Biblical way. I only like it spelt like this though, or one of the Hebrew transliterations. Debbie as a nickname needs a little while longer to...
Dammit I forgot Harvey - love it! Similar feel to Henry w/o the popularity.
I'd consider John but the John I admire most wasn't president.
I dislike surnames, especially very Anglo surnames, as first names so I'm mostly looking at their given names, Arthur excepted.
I voted for Ivy, Ingrid, and Iona.
Ivy - a long term favourite of mine, puts me in mind of romantic cottages and antiquated, grown-over gardens.
Ingrid - Tailored but femme, like a crisply...
My favourites are probably Dmitri, Jesse, Malachy, and Zachary.
Alexei, Avery, Barnaby, Casey, Gregory, Henry, Jacobi, Kingsley, Remy, Vasili, Zebedee
I am not fond of all of them (I can't deal with Samuel and Daniel has gone downhill for me...) but I like:

Technically, Mica is the spelling of the stone. Micah is a Biblical prophet with the same sound. Yeah, it's a very usable name. I love it, actually. I can't use Micah but I admire it.

I wouldn't use Caleb. I just would feel weird naming my kid 'dog' even though I like dogs and I get that it was supposed to be a fierceness/loyalty thing.
I really like Emmett for myself but...
Well, Annabel is probably my single most favourite but if it's out...
...I love Mirabel, Maybelle, Mabel, Belisent, & Belphoebe. I say Maybelle with a true -belle sound, may-BELLE and Mabel with...
I like Nora. Norah is wrong. Similarly I can deal with Nola, but Nolah doesn't work for me.
Sarah/Hannah/Deborah etc. have an etymology behind their h's, it's not just "word glitter" thrown in...
I loathe it.
I love Ari. Arlo just seems annoying somehow.

I like the Spanish pronunciation (loo-see-ah) best of the pronunciations and it's what I'd default to if I had to guess.
But I don't think it's TOO Spanish. It's like Isabel to me - it certainly...
