    Cool Thought on My List? These are the Names You Suggested Before...

    For about two days ago, I posted a thread asking upper-class names.
    And thankfully, many berries suggested me LOTS of names.
    So now I made my list from the feedbacks, and need your honest opinions.
    What do you think of...

    Vivienne (or Vivien)
    Clarissa
    Rosamond
    Helena
    Calla
    Serena
    Georgiana
    Portia
    Edith
    Lilia
    Melisande
    Margot

    Please, I need your help!
    Thank you so much

    If you want upper class names I'd drop Edith and Lilia.

    Vivienne (or Vivien) - I go back and forth of which I like best. Both are gorgeous.
    Clarissa - I'm not a big fan, but it's nice enough and certainly not used a lot. There's Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf, and the novel Clarissa, or, the History of a Young Lady (depressing read).
    Rosamond - Like this, although I prefer the Rosamund spelling. There's the beautiful paintinf Fair Rosamund by John William Waterhouse.
    Helena - Beautiful. I always think of Helena Bonham Carter when I hear this name, which is a good thing.
    Calla - I think this one fits the bill of sweet upper class sounding name.
    Serena - The same as Calla, but even better. It also has this luring sound, makes me think of mermaids and sirens.
    Georgiana - Used to be the upper class name. I think it's beautiful, especially with the -ana ending.
    Portia - I like it, it's sweet.
    Edith - I don't get the sweet, elegant upper class vibe from this one.
    Lilia - Not this one either, it's a pretty name but not elegant.
    Melisande - My favourite! Really beautiful and so rare!
    Margot - I think this is pretty spot on what you want as well. It's quite rare yet familiar as well.

    Vivienne (or Vivien) - I prefer Vivienne, lovely name, 4,9
    Clarissa - ok, 3
    Rosamond - nice, 4,3
    Helena - ok, 3,2
    Calla - a bit bland, 3,8
    Serena - nice, 4,1
    Georgiana - lovely, 4,1
    Portia - dislike, 1,9
    Edith - dislike, 1,5
    Lilia - dislike, 2,3
    Melisande - my favorite, 5
    Margot - nice, 4,6



    Upper class... Georgiana, Portia, Edith, Margot, Serena, Vivienne, Rosamund, Clarissa... but Melisande is medieval lady like.
