Agnes- Agnes is lovely, I really like this.
Ailbhe (AL-vah/El-vah)- This is unusual to me, but I'm in the US. I really like this.
Annabella/Arabella- Prefer Annabella of the two, either are lovely....

Of Human Bondage: Sally, Louisa (they were the only admirable/likable female characters in the book), Phillip
Middlemarch: Dorothea, Celia
Pride and Prejudice: Darcy, Fitzwilliam, Georgiana,...
What kind of people are her parents? What are their ethnic backgrounds, socio-economic status, and where do they live? Is she names for an important relative, or do they go for what's modern and...
@Tay- congrats! That's great! I still haven't decided, but I got an acceptance letter from U of O this afternoon. I guess I'm excited- maybe it hasn't hit me yet. This entire process isn't as fun as...
@Ebony- I'm sorry you're having a bad time of it. :( Sometimes it all seems like a lot. If you can, just take a break from your problems. Read a book, drink some soothing tea, take a bubble bath,...
I think that Magnolia is lovely, and if Lena has a longer name, it'd make sense for Nola to have one too. Plus, it gives way for more options later in life (in case she wants to go by Maggie or...

Harlow and Willow are too close for me. After saying them out loud together a couple of times, they started to run together.
As for middles, Willow Charlotte is lovely.

@megan_ashley- Oliver is Latin, meaning Olive Tree. It could work for a character who lands in the United States circa 2014. But it doesn't relate to mythology (that I know of).
If the angel...
I would think either Scandinavian or Welsh/Gaelic.
Albertine isn't really appealing, I'm sorry! Albert is handsome on a boy, but it's feminizations are too masculine and clunky.
Madeline is alright, but it's not a favorite. I don't care for Maddie, as I've known so many growing up.
I thought of that too! Liliosa isn't my style, but it's nice.
A few favorites:
1. Valerie Celeste
2. Violet Serena
3. Scarlett Felicity
4. Hazel Valerie
5. Naomi Rachel
6. Leah Audrey
7. Audrey Hannah
8. Madeline Scarlett
9. Fawn Isobel
My list is almost entirely made up with old lady names. I find it ridiculous when people say that they don't suit a baby/child because it's too old. Someone on here made the excellent point that they...
@Lauren- Boo for midterms! It's good that you're keeping up with it all, though! Last week here was finals week, but it wasn't too terrible. Now I'm in the home stretch for the school year and before...

I prefer Adelyn out of the two options, but Ada overall.
@Lauren- I've been okay! School's been stressful, but it's nothing new. I ended up reading Of Human Bondage by W. Somerset Maugham, and I finished it yesterday. It was so good! Loved it so much! How...
@shvibzks- I did watch the movie last night. Bette Davis was splendid, but overall I found the film disappointing. I spent the majority of it shouting at my screen: "No! That's now how that happened!...
I've always liked the Vivian spelling more. It's to the point, no frills, no fuss. Vivienne is much to frilly and princessy for my tastes.

My name is Athena. I like my name more now than when I was younger, and I was the only Athena in my school. After entering middle school, I met another Athena.
Why I like it:
Cordelia Jane, Cordelia Esme and Cordelia Louise are all gorgeous. It's hard to pick a favorite.
