    I LOVE Edith! I don't find it frumpy or too "old" sounding the way I see a lot of people describe it. I think it's light and feminine.

    Other suggestions:

    Lila
    Ada
    Elle
    Willa
    Alice
    Audra
    Lia
    Mabel
    Thea
    Iris

    Edith and Vera are nice. I also like Vera as a nn for Veronica.
    What about Esther, Lilian(a), Beatrice(biased here), Lydia, Phoebe?
    Or Cordelia, Matilda, Clementine, Sophie, Alice, Diane, Victoria, Helen, Imogen, Ruth?

    What do you think of Dahlia? It feels vintage to me, Dahlia Corinne still flows well, and you still get the flower connection. You could call her Lia or Lili (lee-lee).
