    Help me narrow from 19 to 12

    I started with 26 names and have gotten down to 19. I'd like to get down to 12. I know I'll need to narrow it down more later. My problem is that I worry that as soon as I take a name off that it might have been " the one". Anyway, here's the list:

    Violet
    Nina
    Phoebe
    Felicity
    Penny
    Ruby
    Fiona
    Karina
    Lydia
    Eliza
    Alina
    Alaina
    Victoria
    Vivian
    Vienna/Sienna
    Winter
    Sadie
    Heidi
    Nadia

    MN will be Carol or Caroline. LN is Mermer.
    Thanks!

    I would remove Nina & Penny from your list. They are cute as nicknames, but I think a child needs a more substantial name to grow up with. I would also remove Nadia. It's pretty, but dated, imo (although NB seems to disagree with me ). All the Nadias I know are my age -so it's a mommy name to me. Alina and Alaina are too similar -you could never use both in a sibset, so you could remove one of those. I prefer Alaina.

    My favourites from your list are:
    Violet
    Phoebe
    Felicity
    Eliza and
    Vivian

    I hope you keep those ones!

    I posted this before I saw that your DS is Julian. I don't think Vivian works well with Julian due to the similar sounding end to the two names. Although I really like the name!

    Oh gosh, I narrowed your list down to ten instead of twelve. I rated the names on their flow (mostly with your surname since the fn and ln are what most people are commonly called in real life). I had to eliminate some names that I love/like. Violet Mermer is too similar to "violent murmur", Winter Mermer and Victoria Mermer just don't sound right.

    Top Ten

    Nina
    Phoebe
    Felicity
    Eliza
    Vivian - eliminated
    Sadie
    Nadia
    Alina
    Ruby
    Fiona

    No to Julian and Vivian as they are too matchy! Now it's nine names.
