Opinions of these names?
What do you think?
Cyra- I like the sigh-ruh pronunciation, but do you guys like Syrah better?
Zella- Does this sound made-up? I believe it is African in origin.
Zelina- Too much like Selina/Selena? I don't like that.
Stele- It's stell-lee. Alternative to trendy Stella?
Poppy- Too childish?
Just wanted to see other people's opinions.A writer and a student. Just another berry, probably under-ripe.
( o.o ) Helping Bunny to world dominance.

Cyra -- I think Syrah or sigh-ruh is gorgeous! One of my favorite new names. It's really pretty.
Zella -- For some reason I don't like this one. Yes, it sounds made up, like trying too hard to be distinctive, because Ella and Isabella are mega-popular, and then if you call a kid Zella it makes it sound like you are purposely trying to be trendy and different, which, with a name like Zella, isn't the best vibe.
Zelina -- For some reason, I'm not feeling this name either. Yes, it resembles Selena. I am not a big fan of Selena/Selina either! I really like the name Celine, though. Zeline would be VERY rare and interesting.
Stele -- Very interesting, but Stell-lee sounds like a nickname for Stella. It's really cool though, but yeah, a bit nicknamey. I like Stelle, or Estelle too as alternatives to Stella. Stella is a really nice name though.
Poppy -- I didn't think it was too childish before I came across Nameberry. I really like Poppy and think it would be okay. There is no reason not to use it. Poppy may suit a little girl best, but I can see it on a teenager and even on a woman (especially on a young woman & an elderly woman). It works for me!
I hope this helped.

I quite like Zella; doesn't sound made-up to me at all, although I recall one day it popped into my head while I was trying to think of a Z name for something, and I thought it sounded neat.
Not really a fan of the sigh-ruh pronunciation with Cyra, my mind insists on saying seer-rah, like a feminine version of Cyril. My mind can only register Stele as an awkward spelling of Steel(e), Zelina is okay, but Poppy just drives me nuts.~Favorites of the moment~
