New Girls List - opinions.
Any feedback is much appreciated! These are not really in any order...
Greta (With or without Margaret as a fuller name)
Sibella/Sybella (spelling not yet decided)
Betsy (With or without Beatrice as a fuller name)
Tallulah (nn Lula, Lu)
Beatrice and Margaret are two names I've loved for a long time, and would not just be used for the sake of having a longer name like lots seem to be, although Betsy/Greta would be used more often than the longer version.Just a kid trying to figure out who I am
And dreaming of future babies...
Emmett Winston, Barnaby Jack, Wilfred Alec, Atticus Leonard & Casimir August
Eilidh Beatrice, Jemima Bay, Ophelia Margaret, Arabella Maude & Iris Priscilla

Greta (With or without Margaret as a fuller name) - I love Greta as well as Margaret. Greta is more exotic than traditional Margaret.
Amelia - Soft and pretty
Bay - I would just use this one as a mn choice
Iris - Vintage gem with the benefit of being a flower to boot!
Sibella/Sybella (spelling not yet decided) - I prefer Sybil and Sybilla but that changes the pronunciation from "bella" to "billa".
May - I prefer the Mae spelling for a first name. I like the May spelling in the middle spot.
Betsy (With or without Beatrice as a fuller name) - A little too cutesy. Betsey is usually a nn for an Elizabeth not a Beatrice.
Aoife - Very pretty and hopefully where you live in England people will not butcher the pronunciation (EE-fuh)
Clara - Sweet and vintage. I also love simple Claire.
Agnes - I prefer Agatha to Agnes.
Tallulah (nn Lula, Lu) - It's ok but not a fave.
Tatiana - An exotic Russian beauty!
Maxime - I prefer Maxima for a girl. Maxime is also a French MALE name.
Iona - A Scottish island name with an air of mystery. I like it!
Evangeline - I know many people don't like the religious nature of this name but I it. It's elegant and poetic.All the best,

Greta- I love this one. Greta actually was once my fave name (girls) but I dropped it b/c it was getting heavy.
Amelia- Bit frilly and waaay too popular/trendy.
Bay- Love this one. Maybe a bit too short? But I luv it anyway.
Iris- Ok, not really in love.
Sibella/Sybella- Bad flow, too frilly, too heavy, and bad rhythm.
May- Lovely name, like the Mai spelling better.
Betsy- Name of a Barbie doll (in my mind).
Aoife- Lovely as well, pronunciation problems. My first though was, ah-oyf?
Clara- Madly in love and not stopping soon!
Agnes- See above...^^
Tallulah- Too playful, not serious enough. Also, that's what I named my basketball when I was little.
Tatiana- I know I should love this name but I can't.
Maxime- Huh? I like Maxine nn Max better.
Iona- It's ok, sort of old-ladyish to me.
Evangeline- Hearing it waaay too much for my preferences. Prophecy: Top 20 in 5 yrs.
