    "Bittersweet October. The mellow,
    messy, leaf-kicking, perfect pause
    between the opposing miseries of
    summer and winter. "

    #4: Elizabeth 25,007 - This is my favourite spelling and form of Elizabeth. I love it.
    #10: Alice 17,141
    #18: Martha 13,911 - Love this. I would probably call her Mattie for short though.
    #42: Catherine 8,915 - I'm actually surprised this is ranked so low.
    #45: Marie 8,490 - Love this, I know it's outdated but its adorable.
    #61: May 5,882 & #63: Mae 5,647 - I can't decide between these either.
    #75: Flora 4,195
    #81: Viola 3,806
    #82: Caroline 3,743
    #84: Hazel 3,644
    #86: Esther 3,476
    #91: Emily 3,368 - Another I'm actually surprised is so low, especially when Emma is so high. But I don't like Emma and I do love Emily so I guess it works the other way too, lol.
    #99: Jane 2,971

    These are the ones I'd really want to use, with an honourable mention for Minnie because I love Minerva and Araminta but I do not like Minnie as a full first name. And same for Jennie - I love Imogen or Genevieve or Johanna or Jane as the long form.
