Daphne: Cute, unusual, and fresh.
Leona: Eh. Lacks substance imo.
Cosima: Unique and rhythmic, with cute nn Cozi.
Isadora: very pretty, but NMS
Phina (josephina etc): I prefer Josephine or Josephina. Phina sound in complete to me.
Petra: kind of cute in a strange way... maybe a little harsh sounding
Helena: very classic and pretty. I like this better than Helen.
Flora: gorgeous and cute vintage nn Flo.
Celia: simple and pretty - I like.
Thea (Theodora/Dorothea): Prefer Dorothea or Dorothy. Thea shouldn't stand on its own imo.
Rowena: I like Rowan better. Sounds like a witch name also.
Claudia: I love Claudia!!! Nn are tricky, but it's just so...pretty and sophisticated.
Lucia (loo-see-a): LOVE Lucia. Nn Lucy is to die for, I've also considered Lux as a nn, and Chia. (b/c it can also be pronounced Loo-chee-uh)
Elise: prefer in the middle spot, but it's fine. Elysia is my choice for a similar first name.
Corinna: very pretty!
Serena: perhaps a little overused. But there's certainly nothing wrong with it.
Noella: I don't think the last syllable is necessary. Noel is fine the way it is.
Luella: Cute! And uncommon.
Cecile: Isn't this a boy's name? (To Kill a Mockingbird, Cecil Jacobs)
Odelia: I prefer just Delia, but this is nice too.
Ernessa: All I can think is the awful nn Ernie. No thanks.
Alina (a-leena): pretty standard. Nothing spectacular imo.
Laetitia(la-tish-a): Looks like it should be Letitia. Sounds tacky, to be honest.
Felicia: beautiful!! And just the right amount of obscurity.
Dana: Simple and standard. Once again, nothing wrong.
Angelica: reminds me of Rugrats character, a little brat with a misnomer. But I suppose it's okay. Prefer Angelina though.
Amalia: Cute! Reminds me of Obama's daughter, Malia.
Alicia(uh-liss-ee-a)/Alessia: I like this, but I would go with second spelling or all you'll get is A-leesh-uh
Cléa: What is the point of the accent? If it's just pronounced Clee-uh then ditch the accent. Do you know how hard it would be to insert an accented e every time you spell your name? Just a thought.
You have some great names here! And a long one too!
