Opal, Hazel, Mabel, Beryl, Jonquil, Myra, Moira, Maude, Maybelle, Millicent, Margot.
Just an old-fashioned name:
Ida, Enid, Esme, Esther, Pearl, Edith, Marigold, Gytha,...
I prefer Ravenna, but I like Raven. The nature-y but not cute feel is really nice. Kestrel and Raven have a very different feel to me than Lark and Wren. I don't like the thing where boy nature names...
I much prefer Emily to Emma.
Emma feels over-sweet to me, like icing roses. Emily is more attractive to me, a stronger sound, less meek. Emma and Ava don't do it for me. Emily and Eliza do.
I quite like Roxana. I like names that are feminine in the sense they aren't boys names, but that are tailored and have some hard sounds in them and a bit of grit.
Roxana is in that hazy...
I have a Japanese friend named Reika, I always thought it very beautiful.
I also like Reina.
Midori is a beautiful sound and nice meaning but, being in Australia, I worry that many Australians...

Mae is fine alone, IMO. And *less* nickname-y than, say, Maisie.
But I could also see it working as a NN for:
Mary, Marie, Mara
I'm re-doing this whole post because I want to fix it.
I'm going to take out the whole section on Spanish/French/Hebrew etc. names that have English translations.
Of the "popular flower names"...

Annabel, Hannah, Susannah
Felicienne, Vivienne, Lucienne, etc.
I like Theokleia?
I like Theodora much more than I like Theadora. I'd never use Theadora, personally. But I like Theo or Teddy as nicknames, not Thea, which probably helps.
Dorothea could be...

* Dovie - kind of cute. I have Dove on my list of one-syllable middle name possibilities.
* Minna - Known some before. Minna and Minnie are both cute. I wouldn't have thought of Minna as that odd...

I love Viviana and Kazmira. I like Sylvia/Silvia more than Silvana.
I also like with Raffaela:
Valeria, Liliana, Lucinda, Penelope, Araceli, Isidra

I think Dorothy has better flow with Magenta, but I prefer Dorothea/Theodora as names. It's just the -a ending isn't ideal with an -a middle.

Boys: Atlas, Tristan, Dinadan, Lysander, Demetrius, Ronan, Gryphon, Hector, Ulysses, Torsten.
Girls: Iris, Luna, Morrigan, Aurora, Andromeda, Ceridwen, Rozhanitsa, Lorelei, Melusine, Gwendolen,...
Sarai is sa-RYE, with the emphasis on the second syllable. The second syllable is like eye/my/sky, a long i sound.
Astrid is pretty much how it looks - and lovely.
Signe is like sig-neh. Some...
Just floating some 10-letter combos
Matilda & Eloise
Cassia & Violet
Rosalie & Seraphina
Arabella & Vivienne
Emily & Elise
Ivy & Morgan
Miranda & Imogen
Caroline & Rosemary
Zella & Opal
I'm currently in love with Imogen and Morrigan - one of which has a hard g and one soft - but Dorigen is not as appealing as them, or Ceridwen, or Rhiannon, or a number of other medieval names like...

I would spell the name Schuyler, not Skyler, but it works fine on a boy. Ronan is a boy's name.
I wouldn't use Addison or Eden on anyone, boy or girl, just because I think they're ugly. But lots...

Sylvie is cute.
I'd go with the meaning, personally: Xylia for a girl, Forest for a boy.

Brook - Gideon Brook?
Ruby - this was used a bit in my family on boys actually, as a nickname for Reuben. Vincent Ruby?
Cat - Cat is usually short for Catherine, but I kind of like it on...
It isn't a Jewish *name,* Jews don't name their kids Torah. It'd be weird, like naming your kid Bible.
There's an Olympic snowboarder named Torah Bright. I don't know if it's common among...
Lucky? Tied to the meaning and the middle sound. I secretly have Lucky on my list for Felicia, but I'd have Felicity instead if my DH liked it. (He only permitted Felicia). It feels unexpected and...
Yeah I've met a few.
I prefer Michal, which is a Biblical girl's name that's very popular (on girls) in Israel.
Most of the female Michaels I've met are in their 30s or older. For a girl, I...

I have different groups based on length - meaning length of sound not number of letters.
1 syllable: Blythe, Niamh, Rue, Jane, Clare.
2 syllable: Opal, Ingrid, Tamar, Yael, Esther, Iris, Alice,...
