Opinions on these girls' names?
I posted another thread in the boys' forums for new boys' names I'm loving right now and thought I'd do the same for my girls' list. I'd love your opinions. Anything with an * is a family name.
Augusta - Love, but my stepbrother has the middle name August which he sometimes goes by. He lives in CA so we rarely see each other.
Eugenia/Eugenie - Can't decide which I like better! I pron. Eugenie as "You-GEE-nee", fwiw.
Florence* - NN Flora or Wren
Harriet - Is this going to get trendy?
June* - honors my grandmother, Judith
Penelope - I love every possible NN for this, but my favorite is probably Polly.
Stella - I worry about the popularity, though.
Vera - Pronounced VEER-uh
Virginia - NN Vira, pronounced same as above.
♥ August, Henry, Dodge, Revere
♥ Mabel, Lilith, Leona, Avis, Zelda

I like them all except for Avis and Nola, which both seem musty to me, but they fit with current trends so I can see their appeal. Highlights of your list for me:
Augusta (which is a sort of family name. Do you get along with your stepbrother? If so, he might think it's pretty cool that you are considering this name)
Rose (please consider using it up front, it's so pretty and often gets delegated to the middle spot - which is ok. I just think it really shines up front. Something like Rose Florence or Rose Penelope would be so unexpected and beautiful).
Winifred/"Winnie" - I got to reread Tuck Everlasting with some middle school classes so I'm on a high with this name. (Also, would be a great book to read her)."Don't try to be modern, it's the most old-fashioned thing there is," - Attilio, The Tiger and the Snow
Domenico/Dominic, Gianfranco/Gianpaolo, Giacomo, Antonio, Raphael, Calogero, Leopold, Angelo, Giorgio, Alban, Malachi, Dante, Mirek, Dario, Lionel
Katarina/Caterina, Irena, Silvia, Aniela, Delfina, Raffaella, Apollonia, Cecilia, Pasqualina, Rosalind/Rosina, Josephine, Allegra, Alba, Leokadia, Annunziata/Nunzia, Bronya, Antonella, Adrasteia, Vincenza, Althea, Eurydice, Regina

What an inspiring list! I love some of the old fashioned gems you are into. I hope you don't mind some name combos...
Winifred Lydia Rose
I think you have a very strong intelligent feminine style & I think the nicknames you are into are different but spunky, the perfect match to a serious name.
